[Minor spoilers possible.]

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?





  1. Girl’s father marries woman with eleven sons. Girl is excited to have a family, but boys want to get it on.
  2. 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.
  3. Idolized gay ice skater takes a sabbatical year to help protege become champion (as well as, unintentionally, comfortable with his sexuality). Romance ensues.
  4. Angry, tiny girl abuses kindly, tough-looking boy as they help each other win over the objects of their affections. Slowly, affection direction changes.
  5. Girl with rare hair and an aptitude for pharmaceuticals stumbles upon princely teenager in the woods.
  6. Gender-neutral girl in a crew of handsome boys just wants eccentric senpai to STOP noticing her.
  7. Bar-tending mannequin man learns to feel with the help of mysterious ice-skating woman.
  8. 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.
  9. Idol boys vie for the affection of one girl before they grow up and start actually caring about their careers. Character progression.
  10. Singing demons attempt to seduce young girl defended by her smitten brother-cousin in quest for ultimate power. Suddenly, vampires!

  1. 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.
  2. Time travel into the warring states period of Japanese history isn’t all bad when you meet such attractive warlords in the process?
  3. Posse of bunnies and cats turn into (mostly) human men. Good thing that hats with ears are a thing.

  1. That was fun! I’d love to try another one in the future. I only got 6, though. orz
    LOL @ “You don’t sleep anymore”. (I didn’t get it right, tho.) So that’s what Mystic Messenger is about. A lot of my friends play it, but I have no chance until I change my phone. (I own a still functioning Windows phone so…)

  2. 1. Correct.
    2. Correct? I got this one, but I don’t recall the abuse she gets as being *her* fantasies.
    3. Correct. Haven’t seen it, but noticed in all over the place.
    4. Correct. Haven’t seen it, but I heard just enough about it to guess right.
    5. Correct.
    6. Missed. …that is not how I remember this one.
    7. Missed. Haven’t seen it.
    8. Missed. Haven’t seen it, but had a moment of “what was that one’s NAME?!”
    9. Correct. Haven’t seen it, but saw the first episode. That was enough to guess.
    10. Correct. Haven’t seen it, but, again, saw the first episode.

    Otome round: don’t know any otome. But number 2 reminded me of Oda Nobuna’s Ambition.
