With 2019 out of the way, it's now time for 2020's The Challenger Wanted. This January, Diverse System is seeking entries for 3 doujin albums!

  • works.10: A continuation of the works series. Calming work music. Submission Deadline: Jan. 20th, 2020 11:59 pm (JST)
  • works.after: A new spin-off of the works series focusing on lo-fi hiphop! Seems smart to jump on the craze now, and I expect a lot of entries for this album. Submission Deadline: Jan. 20th, 2020 11:59 pm (JST)
  • BADASS 2020: Not going to lie, the prompt for the album is pretty hilarious: submit a song with a "low-IQ genre". Apparently, they've already done two albums with this theme already. Deadline is not set, but it is said to be about late March 2020.

I'm personally glad that Diverse System is reaching out to the community for song entries as it makes the doujin community feel a lot smaller.

As a side note, it seems like they've also added in proper English translations for this year as well. These can be found here: http://diverse.jp/tcw/tcw-en/
