Geh, 125

Missed a couple ones due to running out of time just when I found the answer. Also recognizing all the OPs and EDs but not remembering what anime they were from was kind of annoying >.>

Shit I suck. about 55.5 points, although question 55.. (last question), my internet crapped out on me so I couldnt fill it out.. :'( Did however know it as about 1 minute after I was done it loaded.. Anyways with 55 points I don't even have a chance at anything, also considered that I started watching anime just recently :(

Good quiz however! +1

My PC crashed in the middle of it. Google restored to it after reboot though. Not sure if I missed any questions.
Nicely done Memo!

I guessed for a lot of them. I'm most embarrassed that I didn't remember the last name of Blue Snow from Shimoneta (I won't say her actual name to avoid spoilers for the quiz) even though I knew what it was.

my score is 45

(╥_╥) I rarely watch anime when they are still airing and I usually wait to check the ratings on MAL. #tryingtojustifythiscrappyscore

PS I'm clearly just trying to make you all look good by scoring the lowest...... ( >.>)

I took it just to see what I would get, I got 32.
Not really surprised tbh, I honestly don't care at all about soundtracks or ED's or whatever since I always skip openings and endings cause I don't need to waste my time on those. Lot of questions that I guessed on or just skipped. I knew some of them at least xD

Those are still valiant attempts. :) I would consider any score that reaches the first tier to be a pass. However, if you aren't satisfied with your result or want to get a better score tier/badge tier, feel free to retake the quiz as many times as you'd like.

78.5, one short response question was automatically moving on just as I clicked next so it skipped the actual next question, whoops.

A big round of applause to Memo for all the work they've put in!

You know why? I was distracted the whole time by my dearest family that kept shooting questions at me while I was doing this. I'm going to flip a table.

35.5... Kouhai!

I'm not really good or peculiar on memorizing such small details on other anime series, so the total score really describes it...

It's been there for a while actually XD

The timing for the other rounds has not been fixed yet though, as I am waiting for the qualifying round to end so that I can finalize who has been shortlisted for the finals and to come to a conclusion with them.

I will announce the date and time via the official finals' thread within 36 hours of the qualifying round ending and give all who participated in the quiz a comment/pm though. :)

Also, we are just 68 points shy of the 2000 point stretch goal o.O

I suppose that's not too bad considering I've only seen like 3 anime from 2015. Fun quiz :)

Trying to answer all the stuff from second half of the quiz would be so much time consuming so skipped lots of questions :/

That is one tough quiz. You basically have to know everything about every anime that aired in 2015.

I got a 26 lol

Ya it's a pretty tough quiz. For those who want a better gauge of how well you've done than a score out of 200, you can use this website to calculate your percentile.

Step 1: Type in the updated mean and SD that is provided under the Basic Statistics (First Attempts) section of the Original post.

Step 2: Select below and type in your score.

Step 3: Calculate and multiply the result by 100 - this is your estimated percentile (percentage of individuals you scored better than)
