It's been a while, but here's another Identify the Anime thread! For those who weren't around for the earlier ones, I've collected 52 screenshots from a wide range of anime, all you have to do is tell me which series they're from. Post your answers in spoiler or expand tags please, so that people who haven't entered yet don't accidentally see them!

This time around, screenshots will be arranged from A - Z instead of numbered. The letter that goes with each pic is the first letter of the title of that anime, giving you a big hint. Easy stuff! Or it would be, if they didn't have so many alternative names... I've simply gone with the titles I know them by,as opposed to sticking with just English or just Japanese titles, so if you think you recognize something but it's not under the letter you expected, maybe look up its alternative names or just guess it anyway.

The screenshots are split into two rounds, of roughly 'normal' and 'harder' difficulty. I've based this purely on the number of people who've marked them as watched on Anime-Planet – shows from the normal group have *mostly* been marked by ~10,000 people, whereas shows in the harder group *mostly* have 1,500 – 3,000 views. They are *mostly* from TV anime, but there is the odd movie or OVA thrown in. I keep saying mostly, because some letters were a nightmare to find shows for, so I've done as best as I could with those. :p:

Full answers will be posted here after each series has been guessed by at least one person, or after everyone gives up, whichever happens first. :evil:

TL;DR: 52 screenshots,guess the anime. Answers in spoiler/expand tags please!

Two points for those! I know you've seen Cara's answers now, but out of interest, roughly how many do you think you'd have gotten by yourself?

Most of the easy ones, a few of the harders ones. I'm lucky to have friends who are obsessed with anime, and introduce me to a lot of this stuff (even if I'm not a huge fan of most of it myself). Oh, is Y for the harder question:

Pretty respectable considering I haven't seen some of the ones I guessed at.

Phew! Finally finished! I doubt I've beaten 45 and I don't want to compare my answers to other's yet. I'll be happy with anything in the 30's region

No worries about having to Google the other titles, I said in the first post that was allowed. It's the only problem with this A-Z format.

Round 1: 24/26, H and K are incorrect. I could possibly have picked a creepier pic for Q, but it might have gotten me banned from the site. :p:

Round 2: 18/26, B, C, H, K, R, S, T and Z were incorrect. Congrats on being the first to get M and O!

42 altogether, you should give your anime knowledge more credit.

I'm starting to worry about Round 1 H... I try going for something that isn't a straight up screenshot of a main character (face partially obscured or otherwise), and this happens. :p:

Round 2 H is the other one that hasn't been guessed yet... good luck with that. I think it got licensed in America, maybe that's the only reason it got so many views? :dontknow:

You do polarise the scores doing it that way . You'll either get the 40s, or the 5s like I did :lol: . Can I win the wooden spoon? I don't think any self-proclaiming anime fan will score less tun that :emo:

You can have a wooden cube voiced by Norio Wakamoto instead. :yes:



I tried to go for a more medium difficulty this time, skipping the long shounen series and big hits like Attack on Titan, but also leaving out the single episode OVAs and short web animations I used in earlier threads that nobody ever managed to guess correctly. :p: Hard to gauge the difficulty in something like this, really, since everyone has their own way of deciding what anime to watch.
