AnimeShinbun 12 Days of Christmas 2012 - Day 4

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!

Archaic1985d 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.

futurefrog1985d ago (Edited 1985d 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.


deep_fried_bum_cake1985d ago


That is one of the worst things I've ever read...but I loved it.

Archaic1985d 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!

koga881985d 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.

Archaic1984d ago

Yeah, I was specifically not including today's responses in that running total, simply to avoid some people's scores looking disproportionately high.

koga881985d 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!

koga881984d ago (Edited 1984d 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

D3acon1984d ago

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