Thats what made me mess up on the shoujo question the first time. It was too distracting.

Your score is 60%

Veteran -- Anime is your favorite hobby. You watch it online, buy DVDs, and maybe even go to a convention on occasion. You follow fansubs and avoid dubs like the plague. You've been in the anime scene for a while, but probably didn't get started before Cartoon Network started showing it. You probably have a specific type of anime that you prefer.

Yep, that's me ^^ However, I got interested in anime after watching an AMV with Trigun, and then... well it just escalated from that point.

The questions were (for me) a bit hard, but then I just guessed on most of the second part of the quiz ^^

hm.. got 45%. i may take it again. i feel there was too much emphasis on old anime. i usually watch a lot of the new ones rather than the old ones because the animation is sooo much better these days.

*edit* i increased my score to 60%. i guess if anyone puts more thought into it, one can score higher.

Well that's the point. Anyone would know a little something about modern anime, but real anime addicts would watch something that may have even come before their time. Its kinda like how the hard questions that they ask movie buffs are always from old movies. Besides, it wasn't really focused on old anime, but rather anime staples that any anime fan should watch.

i guess that's true but the questions asked weren't the genre i usually watch. i'm more interested in the shoujo and romance anime which the questions rarely focused on.

I am insulted! =D

Cosidering how much anime is out there and in the U.S., very few, ever SUPER anime fans could have gottin those questions right. Dude.

Neither BayBlade or Pokemon was based on a trading card game, I think, I don't know that Yu-gi-Oh! anime came before the card game. I'm wrong, I know it.

I've been into anime WAY before it was on Cartoon Network, HELL, I don't even HAVE Cartoon Network! xD

Yeah, I screwed that question up. For some reason I thought the pokemon trading card game came first. I wanted a tcg question related to anime, and though that was the best way. I was never into pokemon or played it all, the first I ever heard about it was the card game so I assumed that was first.

There are three questions based on romance or shojo animes, all of which are fairly current which I felt was plenty. Most of the list tries to focus on classic staple anime, but there are roughly a dozen or so answers that are from the 2000s, though not necessarily correct ones.

Most of the anime on that list is famous licensed anime, a lot of which has been shown on TV at one point or another. The most "obscure" titles on there are probably Ouran Host School Club, Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z, and Haruhi - those are the only anime's on that list not available in america on DVD (yet).

I tried to spread it out over the main genres of anime (martial arts, mecha, romance/shojo, and high profile feature films). There are only 4 questions that specifcally refer to people in the industry (not counting the opening song question). So even if you don't know any of those, you can still get in a 75%

The seiyuu and the quote question were intended to be the most difficult. I'm not much in the seiyuu thing, but I do know some of the very famous ones, like the ones in that question. It's designed so most people will miss it. The quote mentioned is very famous and has been repeated in other animes (particularly parody animes), so even if you didn't see the anime it's from, you've likely ran into it elsewhere. There is even a webcomic named after it.

I think the director questions are fair. Anyone who watches anime should have seen most of Miyazaki's catalog, no questions asked. The other directors are very high profile and you should have heard of them and seen some of their works if you consider yourself a hardcore fan.

that's pretty much sums it up. except for the "but probably didn't get started before Cartoon Network started showing it" part, that's partially correct. i started watching in 1994 and been a fan since then. i didn't watch a lot for the most part of 2002-2005 because i was ....umm....trying out other "activities" . i regained my interest, in mid 2005, after watching anime on toonami (just a little bit), [as] and Anime Unleashed on G4.
