Fun stats time! Over 100 people have taken the quiz so far with some interesting results. I'll spoiler it out just to hide the questions for those that haven't taken it yet, but the answers are all blocked out so no worries on spoilers.



The numbers on the right show the percentage of people that answered each question correctly. ;)


haha I think the reason why percentage for number 3 is so high is because if I remember correctly there were only 2 multiple choices for that one.


Technically, this should be a question that everyone gets 100% on. It's basically a freebie question. I put it in there because I see it used incorrectly on here all the time. :)

You will get your own imouto which secretly loves you :3 And then your tsundere childhood friend will get jealous, your yandere classmate will go on a rampage, the airhead will help you get away from the yandere, the shy girl has unlimited power and does what ever you commands!


Wow..I think I have an idea for an anime now.

The test is titled "Test your Otaku knowledge" not "Test your anime knowledge". There's nothing wrong with that question. The case has been widly talked about and studied in Otaku culture for over 20 years now so it's very much common information!

I somehow got 60% and honestly didn't know a lot of them, just went with my gut, lol! Most of this isn't in my personal field of interest tbh.

That is one of the flaws with this test. It *does* mean geek in general in Japan, due to language fluidity. The term as geek evolved from the original meaning of that word (the test gives the original meaning as the correct answer). So the word otaku currently has multiple meanings in Japanese/Japan, which the test doesn't take into account.

It's not a flaw. Pop culture references don't define a word. If they had used a slang word instead of the original, that would be one thing, but taking a word, labeling a group of people with it, and using it to refer to them doesn't change the original definition or translation of the word.

Ultimately, it's meant to be a fun quiz using some more common and obscure references from some of the more well known anime and events in the culture. It's not an end all be all type of quiz. You'd need far more than 10 questions to get to that point. It is, however, factually accurate on all 10 questions.

I interned for a professor who teaches a Japanese Pop Culture class, so I knew all but 2, the Nissan one and the Otaku Killer one. I remember reading about the Otaku Killer and I thought it was closer to around 5,300 tapes, so I got that one wrong, but I guessed right on the Nissan one. 9/10 not bad.
