Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|'Why did I rescue this guy in the first place? He's anti-social, thinks he's evil kienival, and hardly speaks. You've got such a gloomy personality, why don't you stop pretending to be human.'||Anime Quotes Quiz
Duo, Gundam Wing. This quote is said after Duo rescues Heero.
Clover. "Sakura" is Japanese for "Cherry blossom".
|After Watase Yuu's creation of "Fushigi Yuugi", which famous shoujo anime did she make?||Original Anime Quiz
Ayashi no Ceres. The original creator of "Fushigi Yuugi" was Watase Yuu. She also made one of the most famous shoujo animé called "Ayashi no Ceres"; "Ceres", "Celestial Legend".
Junichi Sato. The makers of "Pretear" are Junichi Sato and Kaori Naruse.
Chobits. In "Chobits" (by CLAMP), a boy named Motosuwa Hideki who works at a bar found a Persocon in the garbage. He brought it home and named it Chii.
The Journey to the Western. The maker of "Dragonball" deliberately made it from the "Journey to the Western". It is a very famous Chinese myth. Notice even the main character Goku will turn into a gorilla (kind of like a monkey)... and he's fighting skills are spetacular like the monkey in "The Journey to Western".
none. Before Shinji, from "Evangelion" was born, his father said to his mother that if the baby was a boy, it'll be called Shinji, and will be called Rei if it was a girl.
Hoe?. Notice how Sakura from "Cardcaptors Sakura" says 'hoe' so often, even though it's not a word. :D
|In "Pokemon", what is the Japanese name of the one antagonist whose memory was not erased by Mewtwo on the island featured in "Mewtwo Strikes Back"?||Anime Antagonists
Sakaki. Sakaki, who is the leader of the Rocket Dan (Team Rocket), was not present when Mewtwo erased the memories of everyone who had witnessed him. In "Mewtwo Returns", however, the powerful Psychic-type rectifies this mistake when Sakaki goes after him on his peaceful island retreat.
|His heart was pure... pure evil. The villain-turned-good guy of this anime accomplished his goal by getting angry with himself for being unable to reach said goal. Which anime is this?||Anime Antagonists
Dragonball Z. The villain in question is Vegeta, the bad boy of "Dragonball Z". The goal mentioned here is to become a super saiya-jin... supposedly a status that can only be achieved by one with a pure heart. When Kuririn pointed this out, Vegeta explained that his heart was pure... pure evil.
|While the protagonist of this anime has a sword that can kill with ease, the antagonist has a sword that cannot kill. The villain of which anime received the Sword of Healing?||Anime Antagonists
Inuyasha. The villain in question is Sesshoumaru, who is the title character's older brother. The Sword of Healing mentioned in this question is called the Tenseiga, while the destructive sword is the Tetsusaiga. Though Sesshoumaru is evil, in one episode he uses the Tenseiga to heal a little human girl that had been mauled by wolves. This was done in gratitude for the way she tried to help him when he was injured... of course; Sesshoumaru would never admit this to be true.
|He's inherently evil, diabolical, psychotically happy, sado-masochistic and has a violent sense of humor and VERY little patience. He was in line to be one of the top "Hell Kings" but he didn't believe in Kestra's leadership and wanted the role for himself. Who is this?||Anime Antagonists
Vocal. From "Violinist of Hameln", Vocal is a Duo Maxwell-style villain who was the only Mazoku (demon) with enough power to stand up to Great Demon Lord Kestra. To keep Vocal's power in check, most of his power was sealed away in a ball that is attached to a chain around Vocal's wrist. Whenever he gets the urge to try and kill a Mazoku the ball becomes unbearably heavy and he cannot move an inch.
|This man coined the term "the instrument of your demise" by using music to create painful sound waves. This method was destroyed when his instrument was shot. His life was ended when said instrument blew up in his face. Who is this musical menace?||Anime Antagonists
Midvalley. Umi is just the Japanese word for "ocean". Vocal is from "Violinist of Hameln" and looks like a male version of Morrigan from "Darkstalkers". Legato is from "Trigun", as is Midvalley, but Legato's main power is mind control and he was killed when Vash shot him in the head.
|The only cure for his blindness was to awaken the Lord of Nightmares. From what anime is this antagonist from?||Anime Antagonists
Slayers . Rezo, who is known as the Red Priest, hails from "Slayers". His goal was to awaken the evil lord Shabranigdo.
|Which antagonist of "Yu Yu Hakusho" loves to harass Kurama by pretending to plant bombs in his hair?||Anime Antagonists
Karasu. Karasu, a member of the Toguro Team, is a master of explosives. He often disappears and reappears behind Kurama, playing with his hair and commenting on it. This drives Kurama up a wall, as he fears that Karasu is planting bombs in his hair. Karasu's name means "crow", which is befitting to him as crows were often seen as a harbinger of death.
|The members of the Sekihoutai were wrongfully said to be a false army. Which member of this organization started off trying to kill the protagonist but later joined up with him?||Anime Antagonists
Sanosuke Sagara. Nicholas Wolfwood is from "Trigun", Vegeta hails from "Dragonball Z", and Jinto Lin is from "Crest of the Stars". The correct answer, however, is Sanosuke Sagara from "Rurouni Kenshin". Blaming the death of the Sekihoutai on the Imperialists, Sanosuke tries to kill Kenshin, who is a known Imperialist. After he is defeated, he realizes Kenshin isn't the bad guy and decides to join him.
The Principality of Zeon. The main antagonistic organization from "Mobile Suit Gundam", Garma Zabi is the fourth son of Zeon ruler Degwin Zabi. He is placed in charge of the Earth Attack Force under supervision by his older sister Kycilia.
|In one of the most plotless anime ever created, I have a robot helping me out around the house. Unlike most people, I'm not at all thrilled about this. What is the name of the robot?||Anime Characters
Canti . Canti sprouted out from Naota's head in the pointless anime "Furi Kuri". Though the title is a little questionable (it's a Japanese sexual slang term), the anime is pretty good. It's basically about an alien named Haruko Haruhara who drives around a Vespa (motorcycle) and hits things with her guitar to fight this organization called "Medical Mechanica". This anime makes fun of other anime quite a bit. If you like this anime, another one to check out would be "Excel Saga", which is also very funny.
|I'm a multibillionaire at the age of 14. My mother died when I was five and my father when I was seven. Now, only my little brother keeps me company. When my parents died, who took me in?||Anime Characters
Gozaburo. From "Yu-Gi-Oh", Seto Kaiba has led a lonely life. His mother died giving birth to Mokuba, his little brother. His father died in a car accident. Gozaburo Kaiba was a cruel foster father and eventually Seto pushed him out the window of his office and killed him.
|In the last moments of the final episode, I was offered to become one of the undead. We're never told whether I accepted the offer or not. What was the last name of the person this vampire transformed before me?||Anime Characters
Victoria. Ceras (or Celas/Seras/Selas, depending on the translation) Victoria from "Hellsing" was transformed into a vampire by Alucard (who looks a lot like Vash). Integra (Integral) Hellsing is the person in question. Alucard offers several times (half in jest) to transform her into a vampire. In the final episode, the animator allows you to draw your own conclusions. Judging by Integra's facial expression, it appears to me that she accepted his offer.
|I use one gun, not three. My weapon did, however, have a "brother" just as I did. What was the name of my brother?||Anime Characters
Knives. Knives and Vash from "Trigun" were both created using the same material as the electromagnetic plants used on the ships to create life. Vash was a pacifist while Knives was a vengeful killer. They were both ageless and from a species known only as "Those Who Live Outside of Time". The weapons mentioned in the question can expand to form the "Angel Arm", which is a devastating weapon of mass destruction. The "Angel Arm" usually takes on the harmless (for a gun) form of a .45 Long Colt (as mentioned on the side of the gun). Knives' full name is Million Knives... a strange name, but not so strange considering his brother is Vash the Stampede (yes, that's his true name).
|Not unlike Kenshin, I add a unique, two-word catch phrase at the end of most (if not all) of my sentences. In the anime I'm from, another character had the same VA (Voice Actor) as me. Who else from this anime did my VA provide the voice of?||Anime Characters
Koji. Kenshin's catch phrase is "de gozaru", which basically means "if you please". Chichiri, the character in question from "Fushigi Yugi", ends his sentences with "no da". Both Chichiri and Koji were voiced by Seki Tomokazu. Seki Tomokazu also voiced Kamui from "X", but that is a different anime.
|When my comrades and I were created, I was the strongest. But my "mother" was not the one I was working for when I was introduced to the series. What weapon do I always carry around?||Anime Characters
Staff. The character in question is Xelloss from "Slayers Next". When he was introduced, he was not working for Beastmaster Zelas (his creator). He was working for Hellmaster Phibrizzo, who had sort of "borrowed" him from Zelas. Xelloss loves to double-cross people and his favorite phrase is "Sore wa himitsu desu!", or "That is a secret!". He rarely gives a straight answer and is known to teleport away to avoid fighting so that Lina can have all the fun.
|I may seem like one of those devil-may-care type of demons, but I've got a softer side that not even my little lackey sees. I wear my tail over my shoulder, though most people think its a part of my attire. I've got unbelievable power in my left arm, right?||Anime Characters
No. The character in question is Sesshoumaru from "Inuyasha". Sesshoumaru is a dog demon and the brother of Inuyasha (who is a half-demon). The fuzzy thing slung over his right shoulder IS his tail, as mentioned in an interview with the creator. Inuyasha severed Sesshoumaru's left arm in their first fight, and he can't grow it back. He's sometimes borrowed other arms from demons and once a human with a shard of the Shikon jewel, but he doesn't have a left arm of his own.
|I'm the head of my clan, and I'm the nicest person you could ever meet. But if you're a demon, watch out: I'm a professional onmyouji. Who is my sister?||Anime Characters
Hokuto. An "onmyouji" is a yin-yang magician or exorcist. The person in question is Subaru Sumeragi from "Tokyo Babylon". He's very powerful, but often has to have Seishirou bail him out (unbeknownst to him). Seishirou often jokes with Hokuto saying he's going to marry Subaru. Subaru is also in "X", but is a lot more sullen than he is in "Tokyo Babylon", which makes you wonder what could have happened to him. Seishirou, incidentally, is also the head of the clan that has sworn to destroy the Sumeragi clan (again, unbeknownst to Subaru).
|I'm a ruthless person, and I've always had a rivalry with the main character... but when it comes to fighting, I'll always remember to kill evil instantly. What is my true first name?||Anime Characters
Hajime. "Kill Evil Instantly", or "Aku Soku Zan" is the motto of the Shinsengumi from "Rurouni Kenshin". Saitou Hajime is true to that motto even though the Shinsengumi is no more. Remember that in Japanese language, names are reversed. Saitou's alias is Fujita Goro.
Hayashibara Megumi. If you don't know her name, shame on you. First off, Megumi sings most of the "Slayers" opening and closing theme songs such as "Give a Reason" and "Breeze" as well as other anime theme songs.
Where voice acting is concerned, she has played a long list of anime characters including: Faye ("Cowboy Bebop"), Tira Misu ("Sorcerer Hunters"), Haibara Ai ("Detective Conan"), Haruka ("Love Hina"), Lime ("Saber Marionette J"), female Ranma ("Ranma 1/2"), and Ayanami Rei ("Neon Genesis Evangelion").
Iwao Junko. Iwao Junko sings the opening theme song "Scarlet". She has also worked on shows such as "Card Captor Sakura" (Tomoyo), "Mahou Tsukai Tai" (Akane), and "Neon Genesis Evangelion" (Hikari).

Midorikawa Hikaru. Other important roles played by Midorikawa Hikaru include Tokiya ("Flame of Recca"), Zelgadis ("Slayers"), and Heero Yuy ("Gundam Wing").
|"Yuyu Hakusho": Who does the voice of the spirit detective Urameshi Yuusuke?||Anime Seiyuu Quiz I
Sasaki Nozomu. Sasaki Nozomu is also the voice of Clef ("Rayearth"), Yue and Eriol ("Card Captor Sakura").
