Does the work's TV Tropes page list What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? as one of its tropes?

You can't strike out "redundant" hints, seeing as how the questions on dates are an essential part of the elimination process. I blame the numerous attempts at brute-forcing for that round
Okay, I guess I shouldn't have crossed out some of the ones I did after I looked back on it, but you do realize that you're saying that the fact "The manga did not start in 1994" isn't redundant even though "The manga started in 1992" is listed as a fact. Oh, by the way, after I looked back on that list, I only saw 5 facts I crossed out that shouldn't have been.* Of course, that just brings it up to 61 facts.

Is it considered a shoujo according to Wikipedia? No.

Does the work's TV Tropes page list What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? as one of its tropes? No.

Is it on the What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? page? No.

Is the hint a reference to the anime title? No.

Is the anime a Widget Series? That trope is one of those tropes that I would never contribute to because I would never be completely sure if a work would count, even though I know exactly what the trope is about. Instead of yes or no, I'll just say that it is not on that page.

Is the anime Slice of Life? No.

Round 334: Exterminieren! Exterminieren! Halt! Sonst werden wir Sie exterminieren! Sie sind jetzt ein Gefangener der Daleks! Exterminieren! Exterminieren!

Hint: What drugs is she on?

Restrictions: None.

The song:

The anime:

  • Is an adaptation.
    • Is an adaptation of a manga.
      • Therefore is not an adaptation of a visual novel.
      • Is not Shonen according to Wikipedia.
      • Also, it is not Shoujo according to Wikipedia.
      • And it also isn't Seinen.
      • Is not listed as "Josei" on Wikipedia.
      • Is not Kodomomuke.
  • Is not a drama.
  • Is a comedy.
  • Is not an action anime.
  • Is really an anime.
  • Does not have a supporting protagonist as a main character.
  • Is hand-drawn. Of course that just eliminates the few CG and stop motion anime. And no, I will not answer any questions about whether or not it is completely hand-drawn or not, even when I don't have any restrictions up.
  • Did not air before the Tokyo subway sarin gas attack (in 1995).
    • Did not air on an even numbered year.
    • Aired in 1995.
      • Did not air in 1997.
      • Did not air in 1999.
  • Does not list What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? on its TV Tropes page. !
  • Is not on the Widget Series page.
  • Is not a Slice of Life anime.
  • Was not made after 2000.
    • Was made before 2005.
  • Is not a TV series.
  • Is listed on Wikipedia's Anime of 1995 page.
  • There aren't any other anime in this anime's franchise.

The hint:

  • The word "she" doesn't refer to the creator.
    • And it doesn't refer to Megumi Hayashibara either.
  • Drug is a key part of the hint.
  • Is not related to a specific drug.
  • Is not related to the song lyrics or the title.
  • Does not reference the anime title.

Etc.:

[up]About the hand-drawn question, of course.

Is it Seinen? Is it action? Is it Comedy?

About the hand-drawn question, of course. If you know a website that can tell you whether an anime is completely hand-drawn or not, tell me and then I'll remove that bit. The only reason I don't want to answer that again is that I would have to rely on the year, since I do not know if a certain anime series is completely hand-drawn or not. And since Princess And The Frog was completely hand-drawn and that was released in 2009, there are probably some anime series that aired after 2000 that are completely hand-drawn.

Did it air in 1995? Yes.

1997? No.

1999? No.

Is it Seinen? Is it action? Is it Comedy? No. No. Whoops, I could've sworn that I had everything I already answered listed and it was yes.

but you do realize that you're saying that the fact "The manga did not start in 1994" isn't redundant even though "The manga started in 1992" is listed as a fact

They're redundant, yes, but at the point in that game, such questions were still perfectly valid questions (that eliminated available options) with Yes / No answers. (You could make a case for people who asked obviously-answered questions, say, "Did it start airing in 1999" after the hint "It did not start airing in an odd-numbered year" was answered. My personal opinion is that there has to be some kind of penalty for not going through the hints carefully.)

(As an aside, I found a theme song that probably would fit the hint, but it's labelled as a drama / romantic comedy derived from a Shoujo manga according to Wikipedia, and the hint is referring to a specific drug, so it definitely wouldn't qualify. Refer to He.Ro.I.N (some sources would spell it with an "e") from Gokinjo Monogatari.)

  • Is it an OP?
  • Is it (or the manga of origin) listed as "Josei" on Wikipedia?
  • Is it a TV series?

Sure those facts were useful at some point in the game, but there were facts that were more precise that came up later. After certain points, some of those facts would not be useful anymore.

Oh, and here's a little tidbit. Round 216 was one of the rounds that Grain ran. If you count up all of the questions answered and the 1 or 2 hints, that adds up to 32 or 33 facts. The first page says there're 22 facts for that round. Also, Round 229 has 18 questions answered plus the hint for a total of 19 facts. The list says that there're 11 facts.

...Now that I think about it, it's a bit amusing that we're arguing about this because it doesn't matter whether I'm right or you're right, the fact count for a lot of the past rounds would need to be cleaned up. I cannot imagine who would want to actually take on that task.

Is it an OP? No.

Is it (or the manga of origin) listed as "Josei" on Wikipedia? No.

Is it a TV series? No.

  • Is it listed on Wikipedia's Anime of 1995 page?
  • Is it directed at the Kodomomuke demographic?
  • Are there other anime within the same franchise?

I did notice. And thanks to that... I'M IN DESPAIR! THIS SHODDY BOOKKEEPING HAS LEFT ME IN DESPAIR!!!!! (I'm just kidding, Grain. Really. Come back? Please?)

...Wait. So it's not classified as Shonen, Shoujo, Seinen, Josei or Kodomomuke? That means... Wikipedia has failed us. You must not.

Is it the ED to Miyuki-chan in Wonderland?

I'm just amazed it took me this long to notice. It doesn't help that Grain never established any rules for tallying up the fact count.

Iya Yo! - Miyuki-chan in Wonderland - 39 or 44 facts

Explanation: The hint referred to the trope What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland since people have believed Lewis Carroll was on something when he wrote the story... Yeah, it made more sense when I first came up with it.
