Pretty neat. On the Amazon echo they have a Jeopardy game that gives you a question that didn't air that day for each category. I went and checked it out after you posted this. The question was:

"The adventures of martial artist Goku and his companions are captured in this manga franchise"

I think that would of had to be $100.

Jeopardy! Players Flex Their Manga Knowledge in Latest Episode ANN NEWS

Two of the contestants on last night's episode of the Jeopardy! showed off their smarts for manga titles both new and old. The game show had a whole category dedicated to Japanese comics with clues ranging from Sailor Moon to Attack on Titan. The clues will probably seem obvious to otaku, but see if you can beat Seth and Lisa to buzzer as they chime in with every answer.

The long-running show with host Alex Trebek previously featured anime as a category in 2008. Clues on that program referenced Akira and Princess Mononoke.
