MALENTINE πŸ’• MYSTERY
Guessing Game Thread




We have collected ~200 mystery cards from the community, and have organised them into 10 different games.

For each mystery card, you need to guess:
The anime/manga the card is from.
Which character the card is being given to (receiver).
Which character the card was made by (sender).

For example: (on the right):
Anime: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon
Receiver: Mamoru Chiba
Sender: Usagi Tsukino


IMPORTANT!
Please use titles/names as they appear in MAL's databases! Or your answers may be graded incorrect.
Characters should have first and last names, without middle/nick names (e.g. above).
Only play each game ONCE. There are 10 games, so more than enough entertainment.


Guessing Game Deadline
Sunday, Feb 19th, 23:59 PST

(see in your timezone)
Please play as many games as you can before this date!

Results Posted
+ a few days later

Add this thread to your "Watched Topics" to get notified.



We will then rank the cards by:
Most correct guesses (cards and guessers).
Best card design.

The only prize offered is, as usual, bragging rights~


Feel free to chatter about the event in this thread, but don't give away the answers! No spoiling!

Happy Guessing~

This seems like tons of fun. Thanks to everyone who sent their pictures and are organizing the event!

If I recognize the anime but have no idea about the characters, is there any point in submitting an incomplete answer or should I just skip the question?

Still send in the anime title (and feel free to take a stab in the dark at the chars). We'll look at titles separate from the characters.

Does this mean it will be incorrect if we don't add "(TV)" at the end as some titles have that?

I'm finding some of the senders really hard to fill in... Even for series that I'm really familiar with.
Weekly light novel release list (data back to 20th October 2014)
Monthly light novel sales rankings (Jan 2015 onwards)
Best selling Light Novel volumes of the year/all time*.
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

I'm gonna feel so dumb when the answers are revealed, aren't I?

and also because I've swapped receiver and sender in some and left a comma in one cause I was copy-pastaing.

I also (unwillingly) memorized how to spell Yuri!!! on ICE symbol by symbol and yuuri and victor's last names.

And only when I sent that I don't know did it click with me that it was fucking Hyouka AAAHHHHH

Dang those were pretty hard. Only got the
one in the hard section...


Have to say, good job on making the cards! All of the ones I saw were pretty good, and some were just beautiful! Too bad I often didn't get the pretty ones :'(

Holy. I'm finally at Hard. AFTER THOSE FUCKING HARDSHIPS WHERE SOME CARDS DOESN'T EVEN HINT ON THE SENDER/RECEIVER!

and I put the last names before the first names at some answers...

and I rushed too much that I might've got the names wrong...

and damn my card is doing great on Medium

Edit: I'm close to giving up. I don't know half of the anime in Hard.

Ganbatte, you can do it~ Maybe try another batch after your initial ones, it might be easier :)

Eh... Google has a pop-up for this now? Seems they're trying really hard now to get people to use certain browsers and versions. Any chance you can use a different browser?

When the answers are revealed, can you also release the explanation people gave?

Because it's really annoying that with some the anime is really clear, but

The sender and reveiver could switch roles
, or one is clear, while the other should be assumed :/
So I really want to hear what the reasoning was for the cards

They really get harder to guess unf, I think I only know one in hard :'(

Feels good when the answers to a supposedly "hard" one comes instantly to your mind even though you haven't watched the anime in several years. As if I can forget that line about being torn to pieces.

Darn those were quite hard. I suppose not being a fan of romance helps :p
All those cards were nice and makes me want to know what anime they came from so I can watch it!
Looking forward to the results.

OMG! Amazing cards! I have just realised, how simple cards I made... :D

There are much more beautiful ones, with so creative text on them (even they are so hard to find them out :D).

Dear Organizers! Thank you for your works and to organise such an event! :)

Just wondering, when typing the character names for receiver/sender should we put surname-first name like in Japan, or first name and then surname? So I guess as an example, Kurosaki Ichigo or Ichigo Kurosaki?
