Anime Survey Says…

A week and a half ago, I asked my fellow otaku to answer a simple survey so that I could attempt to do an anime-themed version of the classic game show Family Feud and 149 of you answered the call. After playing it in my club last night I can finally reveal the results to the general public. This post is divided into 10 main sections plus 1 more for other thoughts. Each of the 10 main sections start with the question followed by the number of total responses and the top 7 or 8 responses in block quotes. My thoughts and other interesting responses that did not meet the top 7 or 8 threshold are presented afterward. All numbers are shown as raw data without the normalization we applied for scoring. Responses in bold were guessed correctly while those marked by an asterisk (*) were removed for technical reasons which will be discussed in the other thoughts section. One thing to keep in mind is that many of the questions were designed to test two things: What people would answer and how people would interpret the questions. With that said, let’s take a look at the results!

Project Precure

I’ve always wanted to watch the Precure franchise ever since the original first aired but I never got an opportunity to since this was before I got high-speed internet. Even when I did get it, the episode count had grown to the point that it was intimidating just to think about watching it. However after a little advice I decided to take the plunge a couple of weeks ago to watch all of the series starting with Suite Precure. This is without a doubt the largest anime watching project I’ve ever had and at this point I may be partly insane. I’ve even sidelined all but currently airing anime to make room for all of the Precure.

The original plan was to work my way backwards in time starting from Suite Precure and finishing off with Futari wa Precure and Max Heart. However I somehow or another got the idea to instead watch all of the six non-sequel series concurrently. So far I’ve managed to watch at least 8 episodes of each of them so as to keep up with Suite‘s current episode. To put it another way I could have finished a single Precure series already if I had concentrated all of those episodes into one show. However I do not regret my spread watching method since it gives me a good look into all the Precures. Individual initial impressions for each series below followed by my overall thoughts:

Help an Otaku by Taking a Survey

genshiken-cast

I’m currently working on an anime-themed version of the game show Family Feud for my university’s anime club. For those unfamiliar with the game, two teams compete against each other in a contest to name the most popular responses to a survey-type question posed to 100 people. Right now I need your help to complete my project! The survey is only ten questions long and should only take a couple of minutes to complete. Your answers will not be tied to you personally though I may publish a summary of the results in the future. I would really appreciate it if you would take this survey! Also please feel free to share it with your friends!

[The Survey Link]
EDIT: Original SurveyMonkey link removed. Please use the above link to Kwik Surveys instead.

For those in my club, I’m trusting you guys not to look at the survey ahead of time.

EDIT2: Poll’s closed. Thanks for all the help!

Lighting Up the Stage

I know it has been quiet here on Lyrical☆Spark! lately and I would like to apologize to all of my dedicated readers, followers and fans. As much as I would like to get back to posting my usual otaku-related ramblings and song translations, I can’t make any concrete promises as to when that’ll happen just yet. Many things have been going on offline that it has been making my head spin round and round. Between the graduation preparations, job searching and taking care of unfinished business, life has been quite hectic but just when I thought things couldn’t get any crazier, the most unexpected thing happened.

Spring 2011 Anime Overload

It’s been a long while coming but finally here is me and Aorii‘s spring season preview post! We’ve spent quite a bit of time on it especially since we also presented it to our anime club the other day (You can download our presentation here). I was already excited before I started doing researching reading manga and such but after doing so I went completely insane. With the possibility of watching up to 16 television series (not including Fireball Charming since I don’t think that counts) I might actually die from an overdose of anime. This list is stupidly long so without further ado let’s go!

iDOLM@STER 2 Limited Edition GET!

imas-2-package

This afternoon I received my copy of THE iDOLM@STER 2 First Release Limited Edition Sparkle Package from AmiAmi. That’s quite the long name but it pretty much contains all the limited edition goods possible with the game plus the AmiAmi-exclusive bonus. Unfortunately I don’t have time to play it today but I can at least show the internet what was included in the package!
