I thought Japanese games count as well


The video game footage must have been primarily developed and published in Japan to qualify for the requirement. Unfortunately, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is not of Japanese origin. It was developed primarily by MercurySteam, a development team which is based out of Spain. Kojima Productions and Konami were only involved at an advisory level and handled publishing of the game, but left MercurySteam to fully develop the game. Therefore, it does not meet the requirement.

When you select a category to vote in, for any video that you don't see in a particular category, you can always click "All Videos" in the box with the category labels at the top of the nomination lists. This box is the filter selection -- it allows you to filter the nomination list by the tags that the creator gave the video. For example, if you want to select Synthetic Heroine for certain awards, click "All Videos" and then do a browser search for the video title.

So Affective Schoolgirls doesn't qualify because of some old 2011 video? It's kinda dumb... Should author delete that non-anime video or what?

To qualify for next year's contest, yes. The system doesn't DQ videos for breaking the rules, it DQs editors.

But can't there be an exception to this rule? I mean, this video is about to win more than 2 awards... it would be a shame to be DQ'd for no particular reason.

I sure hope not. That'd start a terribly complicated precedent that runs contrary to years of past rulings.

Nothing like trying to make a mountain out of a molehill is there?

He shouldn't be DQ for a video not even relevant to this years VCA, that is ridiculous, and should be changed.

Not to jump in out of place or anything, I haven't even seen Affective Schoolgirls, but one of the rules of the VCA's is that you can't have a non-anime video in the database, or you're DQ'd from ever being allowed to participate? I'm sorry, but why is this a rule? I don't quite understand how that is at all relevant. I don't believe in exceptions, but I also don't believe in ridiculous rules. Correct me if I interpreted it wrong though, perhaps I misread.

The rule is that if you have non-anime videos in your profile, you're DQed until you have the video(s) in question deleted. The deadline to have that taken care of to participate this year was February 22nd. That's pretty clearly spelled out on the Eligibility Page.

I deleted my non-anime entry (Dark Times). Didn't even know about this rule. Is there any way my Affective Schoolgirls would be qualified for this year VCA?

......how about we just not allow non anime videos to be added to the database in the first place? Why do we allow them to be added if we are just gonna penalize the editor for it later?
