Otaku Quiz

This fill-in-the-blank %anime quiz is quite hard, but I had double the score that Steven did.

(Okay, so I had two right. And one was from Last Exile, which I just finished last night.)

It’s a toughie.

  1. HC says:

    It is. Lots of Gundam details, and a fair number of seiyuu details.

    I had 19.

  2. Pixy Misa says:

    I’ve never watched any of the Gundam shows, and I’m not very good on seiyuu…


  3. Wonderduck says:

    Six. Got all the Ranma questions right, I think…

  4. Acksiom says:

    13, counting Sugita Tomokazu as Kyon in MOHS (#47). Because he just is. Incredible voice work. Only the 2nd seiyuu, after the Hayashibara, whose name I’ve ever bothered to learn.

    His by-turns cynical, outraged, and despairing delivery is absolutely what makes that show the winner it is. Without him, it would still be weird and fun, but lacking his vocal chops for the narrative internal dialogue it just wouldn’t be in anywhere near the same class.

  5. Cineris says:

    I got two as well — And both are about anime series that I don’t care for (Full Metal Alchemist and Inuyasha). Given the number of Gundam questions as well… I take it as a sign of good taste having scored so low.

  6. Don says:

    3, and I’m surprised that it I got so high a score.

    I notice that there are no questions about, say, Lain, or Cardcaptor Sakura, or even Sailor Moon. I’m tempted to put together my own trivia quiz, focusing more on anime worth watching and less on recent series I have no interest in.

  7. Alex says:

    That would just prove what I got out of TJ Han’s quiz in the first place: that the questions are based mainly on personal preference – what he’s interested in. To say that they’re “recent series” is unfair, because the list spans more than 25 years and doesn’t skew too heavily towards super recent.
    I would say quite a bit of the stuff he mentioned is good but, hey, that just proves it’s preference, rather than a more general anime quiz.

  8. someone should do a Haibane Renmei quiz.

  9. Ubu Roi says:

    Three, although I have to count #1 despite leaving off the “3”. C’mon, now I have the music stuck in my head, it counts! The others were #44 (I’ve never seen it spelled that way, though) and 47 (Yuki, though it’s really a matter of taste).

  10. Will says:

    I got 1 1/2…

    I don’t think asking about Emerelda from Xenogears was exactly fair in an anime quiz. Honestly, who but a Xenophile is going remember about a second tier character from a 1998 PSX RPG?

    And having not seen Advent Children, I did not realize that Cloud’s new bike was named Fenrir and not the old Hardy Daytona.

  11. Aileen says:

    I have 3 right…. man that was a tough one!

  12. MH says:

    14… too much seiyuu stuff. Besides, I’d go for Midorikawa Hikaru over Jouji.

    I notice that there are no questions about, say, Lain, or Cardcaptor Sakura, or even Sailor Moon. I'm tempted to put together my own trivia quiz, focusing more on anime worth watching and less on recent series I have no interest in.

    Seconded. Also, no Gundam ones :P

  13. Chris says:

    7, all on ones I’ve seen on cable TV in canada.

  14. MikeSSJ says:

    I got 12

    Lots of shows I haven’t watched yet, there. It’s a bit scary that I actually remembered the name of Kenshin’s ultimate move, though >_<

  15. Bombastuss says:

    The answer to question 67 should’ve been Norio Wakamoto. There is nothing more manly than him.

  16. Emily says:

    Dear god I only got 8 thats pretty sad TT_TT

  17. NBSRDan says:

    Since this is trivia that mostly pertains to things I’ve never heard of, I only got 2 right.
    Among the names mentioned, I recognized Death Note, Gundam, Inuyasha, and Haruhi. However, I failed to recall the name of the inanimate object that Inuyasha carries, or the type of weapon mounted on a specific part of the primary Gundam suit of a specific character in a specific Gundam series.
    I was also perplexed at question 47, “What is the best character in Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu?”. Does the author of this quiz mean to say that what’s “the best” can be an objective fact? Surprisingly, I got this one right (it’s Yuki).

  18. Dryaxx says:

    57 right. (I know, I need a life)

  19. Gabe says:

    EDWARD ELRIC IS THE FULL METAL ALCHEMIST NOT ALPHONSE!!! ANGER!!! STUPID CRAPPY TEST!!! Do I get bonus points for correcting the test?(I still didn’t get the question, at which I quit due to RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!)
