AnimeShinbun 12 Days of Christmas 2012 - Day 4

Archaic | 1156d ago
User blog

Hi everyone and welcome to our 12 Days of Christmas Competition. =)

Hard to believe we're already a quarter of the way through this competition, isn't it? I'll be updating this post later today with the running points totals. Remember everyone, as we previously mentioned in the main competition blog for this month, I'll be posting a new blog each day with a set of challenges. While each day will be different, every day will have at least 1 trivia question, and 1 creative challenge. With all of the challenges, you'll collect points just for having taken part and having had a go. Obviously you'll be getting more points in the trivia contests if you actually get it right, and there'll also be bonus points awarded in the creative challenges for people whose efforts are particularly memorable. Being so bad that they're good qualifies as "memorable", so don't worry if you're not at drawing if an art challenge rolls around. ;)

So without further ado, here's today's challenges!

Trivia Challenge:
Today's question is a little obscure, but it's also something I know you could Google if you look hard enough, so...good luck finding the answer if you don't know it already. ;)
It's amazing sometimes how an entirely new anime or manga franchise can come about. Sometimes it's fairly bizarre circumstances, where the end product was nothing like the original idea which gave it birth. Your challenge today? What planned OVA spin-off of a completely separate and unrelated franchise ended up becoming the original Tenchi Muyō! Ryō-ōki 6 episode OVA series?

Trivia answers should be PMed directly to me, and not posted in this blog. You only receive 1 chance to answer each riddle, so be sure of your answer before sending it in!
Correct responses to today's trivia question receive 5 points, less 1 point for every 2 days after this is posted (ie. 4 points from Day 6, 3 points from Day 8, 2 points from Day 10)
Incorrect responses to today's trivia question receive 1 point. Yes, that's right, you get points just for taking part!

Creative Challenge:
Today's challenge is another fun little creative task. I'd like you to take an existing carol/popular Christmas related song, and rewrite the lyrics to be anime/manga-related.

Creative responses should be posted directly to this blog. Unlike the trivia challenges, you may modify your entry as many times as you like, or until the system no longer lets you edit it anyway.
Creative challenges are challenges of creativity and not of skill. Points will be awarded based on your ideas more than on your skill at executing them (ie. don't worry if you can't draw or write well, you can still get big points!)
Memorable responses to today's creative challenge will receive between 3 and 5 points (at our discretion)
Anyone who has "a reasonable go" at today's challenge (again, at our discretion) will receive 2 points.

Today's creative challenge also offers the opportunity for bonus points! If you record your effort and upload it to youtube (you can send the file to us for upload if you'd rather not put it on your own account), we'll double your points from this challenge!

If you have any questions about today's challenges, please post them here.

The points totals to date will be posted alongside tomorrow's challenges.

Good luck everyone!

Jingle bells, anime is awesome!
Archaic  +   1156d ago
Yeah, that falls under the not enough category, sorry. ;p You should at least do a decent portion of the song, preferably all of it.
futurefrog  +   1156d ago
Haha okay here is real one:

Jingle bells, screw filler hell,
one piece is the best,
that gundam tripped and broke its knee,
greed island's like dragon quest,
Jingle bells, anime is swell,
Hunter x Hunter beats the rest,
Yusuke vs goku would be pretty sweet
Why doesn't Kenshiro have a hair chest,
Jingle bells, gohan beat cell
Goku died in an explosive mess,
Shinbun is a home for all anime fans,
the home for everyone,
Its christmas.

That is one of the worst things I've ever read...but I loved it.
Archaic  +   1156d ago
Running totals are up! Remember everyone, you can still answer trivia questions from previous days, and do their creative challenges. Even coming in late, you're still in with a shot!
koga88  +   1156d ago
Haha, dang I just submitted my answer to today's question and the little song as well. Guess I'll have to wait until the next update.
Archaic  +   1156d ago
Yeah, I was specifically not including today's responses in that running total, simply to avoid some people's scores looking disproportionately high.
koga88  +   1156d ago
Mmm, the Jingle Bells Batman Smells really is the easiest to do..

Anime Bells, Naruto Smells
Sasuke is an ass
The story is way off track
and should just go away. Hey!
koga88  +   1156d ago
Going a bit more into it than that one,

On the twelfth day of Christmas, anime gave to me…
Twelve boobs a bouncing
Eleven panty shots
Ten moé blobs
Nine mechas fighting
Eight censored breasts
Seven shōnen fillers
Six KissxSis OVAs
Five Queen’s Blade seasons!
Four Idol spin-offs
Three Dog Days’
Two step-sisters
and uncensored anime for everyone!

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Goku is coming to town

He's making you train
And training you twice;
Gonna find out Who's talented and skilled
Goku is coming to town

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're lazy
He knows if you've been training or not
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why

Goku is coming to town
Goku is coming to town

welcome to the N H K
shut up yamazaaki we'll make your game
We will reign with hentai games
suicide cults a strange girl and stuff
hikikomori hikimoris
Think I'll stay here and feed my fear

Puru Pururin
what does that mean
I have no clue on what to do

Adicitive anime makes me stay
I think I will starve and die one day
thanks masaki for just stopping
making sure I have food to eat

my fridge says
I'll soon be dead
I don't even care as long as I am fed

The N h K will soon pay
mmo games will keep me sane

Chopper, the blue-nosed reindeer (?)
had a very shiny nose. 
And if you ever saw him angry
you would even say he grows. 

All of the other reindeer 
used to laugh at him and tried to run away. 
They never let poor Chopper
join in any portable One Piece games. 

Then one foggy Christmas Eve 
Luffy came to say: 
"Chopper with your nose so bright, 
won't you become a doctor for me n' fight?" 

Then he became accustomed to friends which loved him 
who would always start arguing carefree, 
Chopper the blue-nosed reindeer, 
you'll go down in history... (as the guy who had a bounty of 50 Beli)

Here Comes Ash Ketchum
Here comes Ash Ketchum
right down Victory Road,
with Pikachu and all his other friends
locked in battle mode.

Zubats screeching and trainers battling,
he is ready to fight,
so do not think that all is merry,
because he’s coming for you, Gary.

He’s got a backpack full of
potions and antidotes prepared,
Charizard’s roaring and the rain is pouring,
it’s fine if you are scared.

He doesn’t care if you’re in dismay,
he’ll take your title away,
so jump in bed and cover your head,
cause Ash is coming to fight.
