Having seen this on /a/ some weeks ago, I know there's only a couple dozen that I've seen, and the rest would by trying to guess which harem, which fightan shonen or which mecha.

32. I haven't the slightest idea what most of that mess was (nor do I really care to find out), though a few I missed simply because I couldn't figure out how to spell them.

I got 56/101, even though I've only watched maybe 1/4 of the series shown.

34/101

I cracked up when 'I WANT TO CHAAANGE DA WOOORLD' blasted out of the speakers. Haven't had the chance to watch InuYasha yet, but that tune is unmistakable from the number of times my friend has shouted it at random.
I frequently herp where I should derp. Also music.

88 out of 101, with two near misses.

SPOILER: Show

- I guessed Tsubasa Chronicle thanks to the Clow Legacy watermark on the video!
- Ceres was the only series that I had seen but didn't recognise based on the clip.
- The bot didn't accept "Powerpuff Girls". Fair enought, since that's an American cartoon.
- "K-on second season" was not good enough either.

There were three of those. This was a pretty fair quiz, since it only had reasonably popular shows in it. They could have been absolutely ruthless with obscure stuff if they wanted to.

My real score was "76" but I had some sort of enormous brain fart and missed

SPOILER: Show
Naruto


then watched the part again and I have no idea why that happened. I think I was concentrating on writing down certain other series name properly atm and had my attention directed at that.

and Nick, you weren't only one who had problems with

SPOILER: Show
powerpuff girls z. I swear I wrote it down in 4-5 different ways and run out of time. sigh

65/100

A lot of those series were really recent, and made this thing skew heavily toward newfag anime shows.

I'd say there was bizarrely many shows from early-00s in comparison to earlier era. There was 4 series long streak from 2001 out of which I didn't recognize even one.

Gundam Seed was pretty obscure to me.

Actually I got Gundam Wing and Gundam 00(Fat mecha with lolhueg guns) right.

But I thought there were 5 different Gundam shows instead of 3.

Huh.

51/101. I would have gotten more, but I had trouble spelling some words or I didn't know the show's proper name.

There was already a thread about it, actually.

I think I got about 70-75 last time I tried. It's a pretty fun way to kill 10 minutes.
