Animenewsnetwork - Contests & Giveaways

Anime News Network is helping the Alchemy Stars Operations Team celebrate the one-year anniversary of the hyper popular mobile game. Haven’t heard about Alchemy Stars yet? Read more about it here.

These two contests are being run by the Alchemy Stars Operations Team, but there’s a special bonus for ANN Readers. Read on to find out more.

Happy 1st Anniversary Navigators!

Time sure flies when you are having fun. Can you believe it’s already been a year since Alchemy Stars made its dazzling debut? We are extremely thankful to all our lovely Navigators who have been part of this magical journey. To celebrate this milestone, we are bringing you a two-part community event that is also tied to our Bingo Bonanza event. Firstly, we’d like to call upon the meme lords to bring joy and laughter to Reinhardt’s life. Secondly, rumor has it that the Grand Marshal likes collecting self-portraits to adorn her office. Come join in the festivities and celebrate our anniversary in style!

Meme Marshal

Being the Grand Marshal is a difficult job. Sometimes Reinhardt has to explain very complex battle strategies and ideas to her subordinates. Perhaps you could assist her?

For this event, we’d love for you to:
– Submit one (1) meme using the meme template provided below.

Meme Marshal Event Period
Global: May 27 2 (UTC+0) – June 17 (UTC+0)
US: May 27 (UTC-5) – June 17 (UTC-5)

Twenty (20) Meme Marshal entries will be randomly selected from all platforms to each receive a merchandise goodie bag.

Regal Reinhardt

Reinhardt is one of Illumina’s greatest ever commanders. It’s only fitting that her likeness be captured and documented for posterity. Are you up to the task?

For this event, we’d love for you to:
– Submit one (1) piece of fanart with Reinhardt in it.
– There can be other Alchemy Stars characters in your artwork, but it must include Reinhardt as well.

Regal Reinhardt Event Period
Global: May 27 (UTC+0) – June 30 (UTC+0)
US: May 27 (UTC-5) – June 30 (UTC-5)


Fifteen (15) of the best Regal Reinhardt entries will be selected by the Alchemy Stars team to each receive a $30 USD Amazon gift card or cash equivalent.
