Test Your AniKnowledge Here! 70 Trivial Questions on Anime/Manga/Seiyuu!

Do you walk around in school/work looking down on newbie anime viewers? Do you scoff at the juveniles who hail Naruto as the greatest? Do you think your anime knowledge far surpasses anyone in real life around you?


Test your anime knowledge!

Take the damn quiz to find out how you good are. I was inspired by my friend, who was asking me what my strongest skills are. Having lost most of my guitar, science and other more mainstream skills over these one and a half years of army life, I had no choice but to admit: I am good at watching anime, reading manga and buying figurines.

  • I score full marks too, because I cheated.

  • i scored 100/70

  • Wow, 4 correct answers. Too much shounen stuff that I don’t care a bit…

  • 13/70.

    Crippled by the fact I never watched more than half of the shows mentioned, and that I do not bother to memorise Seiyuus.

  • 19 of 70, but 100% of those regarding shows I watched. I hate Gundam.
    This becomes 0% when quizzing with sound snippets. Even after watching a shows two times and listening to the OST I’m somehow unable to name scenes where a particular music piece is used :-(

  • Gah… it shows how you fail in life if you can score 52/70 >.>

    I think i need help soon

  • 36. Not too bad, I guess, though there are a few others I should have got.

  • I’d do much better if the test was totally on Doraemon and Paaman.

  • I got 12 but I have some beef.
    #47 is biased >_> as I like Haruhi & Kyon
    #58, Paku Romi is Korean btw.

  • Hinano: Paku Romi seems to be Japanese. That’s why I put that question in. Although she seems to have some Korean blood, Paku was born in Japan.

    And #47 is correct. The answer is Yuki. What’s your mutton?

  • I got 10 … I suck … haha … whee.

  • 33. What is the name of the mecha used in Sakura Wars? Koubu.

    Well, technically:

    Oubu (Sakura Taisen: Ouka Kenran)
    Koubu (Sakura Taisen)
    Jinbu (Sakura Taisen)
    Eisenkleid (Sakura Taisen 2)
    Tenbu (Sakura Taisen 2)
    Koubu Kai (Sakura Taisen 2)
    Koubu F (Sakura Taisen 3)
    Koubu F2 (Sakura Taisen 3)
    Koubu 2-Shiki (Sakura Taisen 4)
    Soubu (Sakura Taisen 4)
    STAR (Sakura Taisen 5)

    Not to mention all of the mecha that the enemy characters pilot.

    55. What record does Gunbuster hold? The most number of monsters killed in combat in all anime series.

    It also holds the record for being the tallest mecha at 200 meters. Also, what do you mean by “monsters?” The Ideon is the most destructive mecha in all of anime, having destroyed the entire universe.

    67. When an anime needs a mature manly deep voice, who is the leading candidate? Nakata Jouji.

    Takehito Koyasu?

  • Btw the Boa that sang Duvet isn’t the Korean BoA right? It was a band of the same name right?

  • I sucked. I haven’t seen a lot of those shows, and a lot of the mangas I’ve read I read in Chinese. Boohoo =(

  • 16/70 is my score…

  • Yes that is correct. Its not the Korean BoA, “Duvet” is sung by the British band Boa. Here’s their wiki entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bôa

  • I thought Paku Romi was Korean native :O

  • Oh man, now I’m really getting nitpicky:

    13) Shin Seiki Evangelion
    How many roles does seiyuu Hayashibara Megumi play in this anime?

    Four, actually. She does the voice of the newscaster who announces the blackout during episode 6.

  • 26 2/3 out of 70, not bad at all, missed all of the seiyuu questions though. But really surprised by what I can remember.

  • 4/70.

    It would have been five if I had put Motoko in the LH question box…

  • 32 correct, though I counted my answer of “Haruhi” as a correct one. You should fix that :) .

  • 19 Xp
    Alot not watched before and totally fail on Seiyuu.

  • Sweet, I got like 7 right. Aced those Ranma questions, a few other easy ones, and Aya Hirano’s age.

    For the questions listed in the comments I got 4 right. The questions on Slayers, Cowboy Bebop, Azumanga, and Lain were the ones I got right.

    Good stuff. What’s anime?

  • 15. I’m terrible with voice actors. Even worse because I -worked- on some of those shows from which I forgot the correct answer. (On the other hand, if I hadn’t worked on Houshin Engi, I’d never have known Taikoubou…)

  • Bad question: “48. Name all three of Sarutobi’s disciples (Naruto)?”

    The younger Sarutobi has three disciples, too. Ino, Shikamaru, and Chouji.

  • “50. How many rounds of ammunition does Gundam Wing Zero Custom’s Buster Rifle have? 3.”

    It can fire as many shots of it’s Buster Rifle as Heero wants. Look at it perform it’s signature Rolling Buster Rifle attack.

  • too much shounen anime/manga oriented
    LOL at the 17th question and for the 34th I think the N in NHK stands for Nihon
    and Tessa brother is Leonard I think
    btw, why dont you try make a bishoujo or eroge trivia ^ ^? I’ll be glad to test it.

  • Nightmare's Revenge

    Hey! The Black Cat answer for the original number in the Chronos Numbers is wrong. It’s supposed to be 12.
    Train Heartnet a.k.a. ‘The Black Cat’ was added as number 13 because they thougt that he was a good marksman and would be a good addition to the Numbers. There was no Number ’13′ before Train entered Chronos, and was no number ’13′ after Train left Chronos.

    Also, Inuyasha’s blade’s name is ‘Tetsusaiga’. Inuyasha’s half brother Sesshomaru’s blade’ name is ‘Tenseiga’. Where the heck they got this rediculus ‘Tessaiga’ stuff from is beyond me.

    And have a pleasent day,
    Nightmare’s Revenge

  • Well the chronos question could have been better phrased but I was referring to the time when Chronos had Train, so 13.

    Also, about Tessaiga. In the English language translations, it’s pronounced that way. For the benefit of everyone I guess. But it isn’t really that far off considering it’s just a difference in the size of the “TSU” character.

  • Nightmare's Revenge

    Question #4. How many members of Chronos (Black Cat) were there orignally?

    My take on that is to ‘start out with’, meaning from the begining.

    And the Inuyasha ‘Tetsusaiga’, ‘Tenseiga’, ‘Tessaiga’ thing just bothers me a bit.

    I’m sorry if I offened you tj_han. I get slightly possesive of Inuyasha when people get things wrong because it was the first manga I read. I still get up set when people say “Nice bag. But what’s up with scary looking girl with the long nails and sword on the front?” GRRR. “HE’S A GUY! NOT A STUPID GIRL!!!” And I just really, really like Train.

    And have a pleasent day,
    Nightmare’s Revenge

  • holy crap… i scored like 6 out of 70 tough test… lol i don’t even know half the anime

  • I’m slaved to anime quizzes and i cant find more boohoo T-T

  • Damn… I have a LONG way to go… lol

  • ka-lu ka-lee

  • *shakes head sorrowfully, in shame of my own lack of knowledge*

    That’s it, I tell you! :x NO MORE NARUTO FOR ME! It’s strictly seinen from now on.

  • 14/70. I have a terrible name memory.

    Although might claim the quiz to be a bit biased :P

    2) Slayers
    Which is the mythical strongest spell of Fire elemental magic?

    Shamanic or Black Magic? ;) Do Mazoku ones count?

  • Also, I’d go for Midorikawa Hikaru over Jouji. Oldskool but still cool ;)

  • For #50, Wing Zero Custom’s buster rifle is a particle cannon you retard.

  • About 10 Seen all of those anime mentioned, but how the hell do you except me to remember all those thing?

  • lol,i only got the slam dunk qn correct ..so its 1/100 for me lol

  • Hmmm

    I think it should be Raising Heart for Nanoha’s Device. But if I say its Raising Heart, am I still correct? Because its the only question that might prevent me from scoring full marks.

  • I got 14 right, but I disagree of the manly voice one Takehito Koyasuwims that category!

  • LOL. i got….

    *drum roll*

    2/70!!!
