Test Your Anime Knowledge – Anime Quiz 9

New month! Spring is almost here, though, around here winter wanted to remind us that it’s not over yet by dumping 7 inches of snow on us yesterday.

Before we get to this week’s quiz I wanted to mention that I have started an ask.fm account and it can be found here. I hope it will turn into a great supplement to The Null Set. I’m open to just about any question. Definitely ask the anime questions and/or science fiction questions. Topics like politics and religion and the like – which I try to steer clear of on this blog – are fair game over there; just remember to be polite and respectful and I’ll promise to be polite and respectful back. I’m even open to some light personal questions because who I am as a reviewer of anime is influenced and framed by me, no matter how objective I try to be, and I think getting a better handle on who I am will help those reading weigh what I write better. I just never felt that I should devote much blog space for this personal information. For instance, I already answered a question about my favorite movie and after some thought I realized that The Blues Brothers is my favorite movie and I believe that shows that I can value a comedy on the same level as a drama.

You should also check my ask.fm page out for the cool background I put together; it’s the reason why I didn’t have the time to finish my top 10 shows of 2014 post last week🙂 .

And now, here’s this weeks anime quiz.

Question 1: Name the anime that features these three characters – Yui Hirasawa, Ritsu Tainaka, Mio Akiyama.

Question 2: Name the anime that features these three characters – Kanako Miyamae, Matsurika Shinouji, Mariya Shidou.

Refer to the following picture for questions 3 – 5.

anime_quiz_09_screenshot_01Question 8: The spring 2015 anime season is rapidly approaching. One way to help judge if an anime series is worth watching is by the animation studio who is animating it.

What animation studio is animating this series?

  2. Hmm, guess I’ll have to find an excuse to leave you a question sometime.

    1. K-On
    2. Maria-Holic
    3. A is Azumanga Daioh, B is Princess Jellyfish, C is Monster, D is Revolutionary Girl Utena
    4. Azumanga Daioh is Shounen, Princess Jellyfish is Josei, Monster is Seinen, and Utena is Shoujo
    5. B, A, D, C. Guessing on Monster – it’s the only one I don’t know for sure
    6. Love of donuts? I know Vash is a donut freak, and I think I heard somewhere that Aoi is too. Then again, who isn’t?
    7. A) Fall 2011? I know it was 2011 but can’t remember which one
    8. A-1. Just guessing here, probably wrong
    9. Kyoto Animation. Even if Euphonium wasn’t already on my PTW list, I’d recognize them anywhere
    10. Bones. Less sure on this one – reminds me a bit of Madhouse too, but I’m just getting more of a “Bones” vibe from it.
    11. JC Staff. I own several series by them, including RGU and Toradora, so I’m very familiar with their style.
    12. Don’t Know
    13. Don’t Know
    14. Don’t Know
    15. Toradora (yay! only my second-favorite anime ever)

  3. @TheAtarashiiGuy: Thanks for your answer, you’re probably being too hard yourself – it’s okay to guess.

    @miharusshi: I’ve had Jun Fukuyama on my list to definitely include from the beginning. Doing these quizzes I’ve been surprised by just how many “well-known” seiyuu there are out there. I don’t think I’ll get to them all before the planned end of 13 quizzes.

    @Jim D.: I could see that about Madhouse instead of Bones, there is alot of cross company work between the two.
