I'm a volunteer at my local library and we will be hosting a trivia night in the fall. I'm looking for some good manga/anime trivia questions. Any suggestions?

It would be great if they could appeal to both girls and guys ages 13 to 18.

Do you know which series are popular with those age groups in your neighbourhood?

toukokuu 4, 2011, 7:56 am

lol, not really. It's going to be in the form of a competition and different teen groups will be participating. I've never met the people from these groups.

toukokuu 6, 2011, 4:58 pm

Hm, I don't know HOW useful it will be, but maybe you can ask questions where you choose an author and a series and ask if that series is by that author (or: which one of these three series is NOT by this author)?

Or questions like:
-Which hair colour does the female/male lead character of this anime/manga have?
-Is Sailor Chibimoon the little sister or daugher of Sailor Moon? or something like "What is the Japanese name of Sailor Moon civilian form" or something like that, or maybe about another series as I don't know how popular Sailormoon actually is nowadays.
-Questions about Pokémon... (I'm sure everyone knows a bit about that)

thanks for the recommendations. I know that one of the groups is of 13-15 year old girls. So I don't know how much they would know of older series. I'm older and know both series (SM and P).

here are 2 sample questions I might use:
Where does Relena first meet Heero in Gundam Wing? A) At school B) At a party C) At the beach D) At a shooting range

(In Ranma ½) what is the colour or Ranma’s hair in the manga? A) Red B) black C) Blue D) Plaid

(I can't decide if this manga is too "old" for 13 year olds)

toukokuu 17, 2011, 2:06 pm

I think they might be. Maybe go with Fruits Basket, Happy Cafe, anything CLAMP, Bleach... those are the ones I see that age group talking about a lot online (ie: recent and popular shoujo, also big popular series)

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 17, 2011, 2:33 pm

any ideas for CLAMP questions?
Tsubasa or xxxHolic

what about these questions?

InYu Yu Hakusho (Poltergeist Report), Kuwabara has a wekness for A Kittens B) Puppies C) Stuffed animals D) Frilly dresses

What outfit was Sakura wearing in Card Captor Sakura when she captured her first card? A) Her well-known pink battle outfit B) A battle outfit that looks like a jester outfit C) A battle outfit that looks like a teddy bear D) A battle outfit that appears to be nothing more then her pajamas

In Fushigi Yugi, the Genbu Seishi gave Miaka a test to prove that she really is the Suzaku no Miko. What is the test? A) They trap her in a mirro and she needs to get out B) They freeze her in water and she needs to get out C) They put her in a pit of fire and she needs to get out D) They lock her in a Port-a-Potty and she needs to get out.

does someone know a good Black Butler or Ghost Hunt trivia question? (please include the answer)

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 17, 2011, 2:36 pm

probably something about Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle. Hmm.... "What color is the Mokona who goes with Sakura and Sia-whatshisname? A) White B) Black C) Red D) Pink" (white - the black one is in xxxHolic)

Happy Cafe: When Ichiro falls asleep, what is the only way to wake him up? A) by kicking him B) by throwing water in his face C) by tickling him D) by feeding him (D)

I know nothing about Black Butler, but I might look at the TVTropes page later and see if I can think of something.

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 17, 2011, 2:35 pm

is that someone's name???

do you mean Syaoran?

toukokuu 17, 2011, 2:36 pm

Yeah, Syaoran. Couldn't remember.

toukokuu 17, 2011, 2:39 pm

thanks a lot. lol, can you think a a bleach question?
I only need 5 more questions in the manga/anime category. yay.

toukokuu 17, 2011, 2:50 pm

Let's see...

Easy: What color is Ichigo's hair? Orange, Blonde, White, Brown (orange)

Slightly Less Easy: How many sisters does Ichigo have? 0, 1, 2, 3 (2)

More difficult: When Kon isn't in Ichigo's body, what form does he have? Right: Lion plush toy. Wrong: Ichigo's sword; ghost; charm bracelet

toukokuu 17, 2011, 3:31 pm

ok, thanks

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 24, 2011, 4:48 am

I was thinking of stuff that happens outside of a plot point...

General Knowledge
Get them to name 3-5 manga publishers in America. (Or Japan)
And/or get them to name 3-5 anime franchisers in America. (Or anime studios in Japan)

Ghibli (everyone's seen Ghibli movies, right?)
Who has provided the soundtrack for all of Miyazaki's Ghibli films? Correct Answer is Joe Hisaishi.
Ask them to name 5 Ghibli movies.
Or, if you want to make it hard, tell them the title of 5 popular Ghibli movies and ask them to correctly put the titles in the order that they were produced, oldest first.

Voice Actors and Pop Culture
Which anime character was voiced by Elizabeth Berkley, the actress who portrayed Jessie in Saved By The Bell? Correct answer: Naomi Armitage. (Armitage is enough for the answer... And, yes, this question ages me.)
The American voice actor for Vash the Stampede was a former Power Ranger. Which one? Correct Answer: Johnny Yong Bosch, who portrayed Adam Park, the Black Power Ranger. (Any part of that should be OK, but that's up to you. Incidentally, he was also the Green Turbo Ranger...)

Also, this has amused me since it was posted in 2004:

You could also ask about the magazines.
Like "Name a popular magazine that publishes chapters of different manga each month"

Answers could be Shojo Beat, Shohen Jump, Otaku USA, or Yen+

There's also Tokyo Mew Mew, that's popular among younger teens right?
You could ask what animal the main character turns into and such.
