Test Your Anime Knowledge – Anime Quiz 5

Looking over this week’s anime quiz, I might have made the difficulty a bit to high 😛 . Then again, maybe I happened upon someone’s wheelhouse – we’ll just have to see.

Speaking of anime within someone’s wheelhouse, this week’s episode of Koufuku Graffiti, episode 4, was really in my wheelhouse of what I like to see in an anime episode. A brutally honest summary of the episode would be the main character gets bored, decides to go to the library and then to the corner convenience store to buy a snack to eat while at the library. And like the best slice-of-life series, the summary, while completely true, really sells the show short. What it glosses over, and what I enjoy seeing and being reminded of, is the savoring of the little bits of wonderful everyday magic that people can find if they would only open their eyes, pay attention, and look around them.

Moving on, since I’ve got a mountain of snow and ice outside calling me 🙂 , here’s this weeks quiz, good luck.

  2. I’m also watching Koufuku Graffiti. It’s definitely not my favorite of the season (so far that’s Saekano), but it’s a pretty pleasant way to spend 25 minutes now that I’m finally getting used to the extreme close-ups of the girls eating.

    On to my answers…

    1. Eureka Seven
    2. Yu Yu Hakusho
    3. B is Space Battleship Yamato 2199, and D is Cyborg 009: The Cyborg Soldier. Don’t know the other two.
    4. Remakes?
    5. Shaft (and if you know your Saturday morning 80s cartoons, I recently learned that Shaft was a subcontractor for “Hulk Hogan’s Rock n’ Wrestling” – don’t know if they snuck any head-tilts into it, though)
    6. Less sure about this one, but I’ll say Deen. I know KyoAni was founded in the 80s, but I’m pretty sure Deen goes back to the 70s.
    7. D
    8. B
    9. B is Star Driver, C is The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, D is Mushishi. I don’t know A. And you fooled me for a while, because I don’t think you’ve put a movie in these foursomes before – I stared at C for about ten minutes (and rejected Tokyo Magnitude at least four times) before it finally clicked.
    10. D, C, A, B?
    11. Don’t Know
    12. Aya Hirano
    13. Tomokazu Sugita (Speaking of wheelhouses, I’d be very disappointed in myself if I ever miss a Haruhi-related question)
    14. Don’t Know
    15. Don’t Know
