Limit one entry per person and Twitter account. Use of multiple accounts or identities to obtain additional entries and entries generated by automated means are prohibited and may result in disqualification at the Sponsor’s discretion. Receipt of entries will not be acknowledged and the Sponsor is not responsible for entries not received for any reason. Incomplete or illegible entries will be disqualified.

Fifty (50) prizes are available to be won. Each prize consists of one (1) download code for the Trials of Mana game with an Approximate Retail Value of $49.99 USD. In addition, of the fifty (50) prizes available to be won, four (4) of the prizes will also include either a custom skinned PlayStation® 4 or a custom skinned Nintendo Switch™, each with an Approximate Retail Value of $400 USD.
Unless otherwise noted, all prizes are awarded as-is and without warranty of any kind, implied or express. Any difference between the approximate value and actual value of a prize will not be awarded. Prizes are not assignable or transferable and no substitutions are permitted except at our sole discretion due to unavailability, in which case a prize of comparable or greater value will be awarded.
Your odds of winning are based on the number of eligible entries received.
Fifty (50) potential winner(s) will be selected by the Sponsor or its designee in a random drawing held after the close of the Entry Period from all eligible entries received during the Entry Period. If you are a potential winner, we will notify you by Twitter direct message to the account provided at time of entry to verify your eligibility and obtain your complete contact information. You must be following @Funimation and @ManaGame and have your account settings set to “unprotected” and/or “public.” In order to be declared a prize winner by Sponsor, the potential winner(s) must be in compliance with these Official Rules and correctly answer, unaided, a mathematical skill testing question. If a potential winner does not respond and comply with the instructions in the direct message within seventy-two (72) hours after the message is sent, an alternate winner may be selected by random drawing. In our sole discretion, a potential winner may only be notified one time as set forth above.
Each potential winner agrees to sign any further documentation requested by us and return it within the time period specified on the winner notification message. If a potential winner fails to comply with these official rules, that potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner selected by random drawing.
Any prize details and restrictions not specified will be determined by us in our sole discretion.
If you are confirmed as a winner of this Sweepstakes:
- You may not designate someone else as the winner.
- We will not replace any lost, damaged or stolen prizes.
- If you are unable or unwilling to accept your prize, we will award it to an alternate potential winner.

In the event of a dispute as to any Twitter account, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register for the account will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

GOVERNING LAW / ARBITRATION:
This Sweepstakes will be governed by the laws of the State of California (without regard to the conflicts of laws rules thereof).
By entering into the sweepstakes, you agree that any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Sweepstakes (including without limitation its prizing) or relating to these official rules, their enforcement, arbitrability or interpretation, shall be submitted to JAMS (“JAMS”) for final and binding arbitration under its comprehensive arbitration rules and procedures if the matter in dispute is over $250,000 USD or under its streamlined arbitration rules and procedures if the matter in dispute is $250,000 USD or less, to be held in Los Angeles, California, before a single arbitrator. The arbitrator shall be selected by mutual agreement of the parties or, if the parties cannot agree, then by selecting an arbitrator from a list of arbitrators supplied by JAMS. If the parties still cannot agree on an arbitrator, the arbitrator shall be appointed by JAMS. The arbitration shall be a confidential proceeding, closed to the general public. The arbitrator shall issue a written opinion stating the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator’s award is based. The parties will share equally in payment of the arbitrator’s fees and arbitration expenses and any other costs unique to the arbitration hearing (recognizing that each side bears its own deposition, witness, expert and attorneys’ fees and other expenses to the same extent as if the matter were being heard in court). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitrator may require that such fees be borne in such other manner as the arbitrator determines is required in order for this arbitration clause to be enforceable under applicable law.
