Care to play a game? The following are (sometimes intentionally ridiculous) one-to-two sentence summaries of some generally well-known anime; can you confront the challenge of identifying the works’ titles from this limited information?
- Girl’s father marries woman with eleven sons. Girl is excited to have a family, but boys want to get it on.
- Sucking blood equals sex to our cast as unresistant good girl indulges in masochistic fantasy with the “help” of abusive vampires owning their extreme sadism-masochism fetishes.
- Idolized gay ice skater takes a sabbatical year to help protege become champion (as well as, unintentionally, comfortable with his sexuality). Romance ensues.
- Angry, tiny girl abuses kindly, tough-looking boy as they help each other win over the objects of their affections. Slowly, affection direction changes.
- Girl with rare hair and an aptitude for pharmaceuticals stumbles upon princely teenager in the woods.
- Gender-neutral girl in a crew of handsome boys just wants eccentric senpai to STOP noticing her.
- Bar-tending mannequin man learns to feel with the help of mysterious ice-skating woman.
- As observed by a teenage girl, warriors in late Edo and early Maji Era Japan face challenges to and questions of their warrior spirit. Death before dishonor.
- Idol boys vie for the affection of one girl before they grow up and start actually caring about their careers. Character progression.
- Singing demons attempt to seduce young girl defended by her smitten brother-cousin in quest for ultimate power. Suddenly, vampires!
BONUS OTOME ROUND!
- Your MC has been lured to an apartment rigged to explode through a messenger app that allows her to talk with several eligible bachelors. You don’t sleep anymore.
- Time travel into the warring states period of Japanese history isn’t all bad when you meet such attractive warlords in the process?
- Posse of bunnies and cats turn into (mostly) human men. Good thing that hats with ears are a thing.
