Hi everyone and welcome to our 12 Days of Christmas Trivia. =)
Here's how things are going to work. Rather than giving you a new question a day as we have in some past years, I'm going to give you all 12 questions in one big lump, to make sure you've all got time to hunt down the answers. For all of the questions this year, we're specifically asking about 2015 anime series which have streamed legally online for the first time this year. This includes 2nd seasons, sequels, and remakes, as well as all anime that has streamed on genre specific services like Crunchyroll and Daisuki, and general streaming services like Hulu and Netflix, but excludes anime which start airing in late December after this post has gone live.
As a small hint to get you... while we've tried to spread the questions across as many series as possible, we did double-up on one series. You'll have to wait and see which it is though. ;)
While the contest is called the 12 Days, that's more just due to the number of questions than anything else. You'll have until 11:55 PM (American Pacific Standard Time) on December 31st to get your entries in. If a tiebreaker is needed, we'll first go to least number of incorrect answers (ie. it's better to submit no answer to a question than to submit a wrong answer), and then to an additional tiebreaker question if necessary.
You don't receive more points for submitting early, so take your time and think about the answers before you put them in. You will not be allowed to change them afterwards.
To submit your entry, open a ticket using the link below, and include in your first message that it's for the 12 Days of Christmas Trivia.
You can use this same ticket (which you'll be able to find in http://animeshinbun.com/tic... after you start it) for the creative competition as well.
Please be aware will NOT be accepting answers through PM, or through replies in this thread. You must use that ticket system.
