"What's the Connection?" Anime game

Postby Acey » Mon Mar 09, 2009 6:09 am

Simple premise:

Post two or more anime images that have a definite but not immediately apparent connection/commonality between them.

For example:

Image

Image

Image

The connection is that Kagome, Mirei and Milly all share the same seiyuu, Satsuki Yukino.

Pretty easy, isn't it? Image

How about someone else tries to guess the connection between these two pictures?

Image

Image

Like in the "Guess the Anime Game", the person who guesses correctly posts the next image(s).
Timotei. Timotei... Timotei?

It might be easy for you but I don't even recognize the characters at all in the two newer pics. And Although I did know Kagome and Mille I sadly have never gotten a hold of copies of either of their series intact with end credits translated so I could read who the voice actress was.

Premise is easy, but if it can be challenging to guess a single anime, knowing two to piece together a connection (which could be an obscure one like... both characters have a blue eyed sibling) well, then you start to run into trouble...

Both characters have an 'identical' twin.

But how general can it end up. I mean those last two also both have computer aided artwork for the environments.

Both also aired in 2006 and feature VA Yukari Tamura.

Yep, both characters, Kaoru Hitachiin and Shion Sonozaki have identical twins.

Perhaps to avoid adding unnecessary difficulty, we could name the anime the characters come from?

But how general can it end up. I mean those last two also both have computer aided artwork for the environments.

Both also aired in 2006 and feature VA Yukari Tamura.


I wouldn't consider something as commonplace as computer generated artwork or a series having had the some of same staff working on it as as true connection though. I guess what I really should have titled this is "Guess the anime character connection".

Obvious common traits like:

#Both characters practice kendo ~ Tenshi, Kuno
#They're both gender-benders ~ Ranma, Maze
#Both characters share the same actor ~ Akane, Kikyo
#Blond anti-heroines who die in the first episodes of their own series ~ Excel, Seras Victoria
#They love curry ~ Ciel, Kaolla Su
#They're both old massively perverted martial arts masters ~ Happosai, Muten Roshi
Timotei. Timotei... Timotei?

Since the point is not to identify the characters, but rather their connection, stating the name of the character may do instead of naming the series they come from. Another option is to state the name and series.

I was thinking this too, Larry. Also, if someone hazards a guess and gets it right, they're under no obligation to post the next question; I'll take responsibility if they just want to guess.

With that cleared, lets see if anyone can guess what these three characters have in common?

Image
Lancer, from Fate/stay night.

Image
Farfarello from Weiß Kreuz.

Image
Celty Sturluson from Durarara!! (which is still airing).

As an extra hint, these three characters have the same thing in common with each other as they do with me!

Good because my next guess was they all use some form of sharp and pointy.. Farfie with his knives, Cerly with that scythe, Lancer with his Spear... and....

...I'm sure Sensei uses something sharp and pointy.... umm, kitchen knife perhaps? ^_^;;

Well the Spatula is kinda sharp but I'm not sure about pointy... I doubt I will ever be able to win in this game. I don't know enough characters.

But like Larry said, it's not about knowing the characters, it's about finding the connection between 'em.

I'm almost positive the connection is Ireland. Anyone mind if I post the next one, or should we wait for Sensei to confirm it?

If all you can tell about a character is what you see in the posted image how will you know something like They were Irish? They don't all have red hair or speech bubbles showing off the gift of gab. <I know bad example. But really without knowing SOMETHING about the characters how can you make the connection?
