I’m doing this for fun now and what’s more fun then making you wish you knew just a little bit more about the best and worst anime. It’s taken a while to compile but here it is, a list of 30 trivia questions which I believe you will not be able to answer. They are so hard that I suspect nobody will be able to answer them without a web search but no so hard as to be completely unfair. There is always the possibly that somehow you know one of these answers, maybe even two so a scoring system has been put in place to put you in your place.
Scoring system goes as followed. One point for each correct answer.
0-4 You know nothing about the finer details of anime and have not observed a single thing in your anime viewing experiences. Good for you, enjoy the bliss of ignorance.
4-7 It was a fluke and you know it. You probably just watched re-runs of anime on the television five minutes ago. Was it an episode of Cowboy Bebop or Ghost in the Shell?
8-12 That’s some serious knowledge you have there but you’ve missed a large portion of them so don’t feel too good about yourself.
13-19 I don’t expect anyone to get this many but if you did then you deserve some credit I suppose.
20-28 You are an anime fan with an extensive knowledge of anime old and new spread across a large variety of genres. Be proud and let people know how smart you are.
29 So close, I suspect this will be the first of many disappointments you will face since luck clearly isn’t on your side.
30 Well that’s just sad, okay you did know everything and I am proud of you but deep down I’m disappointed and I know you are as well because the answer to question 2 is something you should have purged from your brain like I did.
