No.

Round 262: Thunderbolt and Lightning, very very frightening...

Hint: It's not the answer to Round 232. It's still relevant though.

The anime:

  • did not start after 2005.
  • is longer than 26 episodes.
  • is not The Big O.
  • is not Pokemon.
  • did NOT start airing in the 90's.
  • is longer than 50 episodes.

The song:

  • is not Bohemian Rhapsody. (was that ever used in an anime???)
  • is an OP.

No (why is that a mandatory question? I mean, it's not God Kn- *gets shot*), NO, Yes.

EDIT: Error. Note changes. No bonus hint though.

Mandatory because the hint had thunderbolt in it.

Anyway.

Is it a mecha?

Did it start airing in the 1980s?

Does the anime have more than one OP?

Oh, I thought you meant mandatory.

No, Yes, Yes.

P.S. Bonus points if you can figure out why both parts are relevant! (Although you'll be kicking yourself when it's over.)

Is it Ai o Torimodose? (with the hint referring to the "you wa shock!" part of the song.)

If not:

Is it a shounen?

Does the anime have more than 100 episodes?

Too easy, eh? The answer is: Ai wo Torimodose - Fist Of The North Star OP.

  • Scenario 1: You're struck by lightning.
  • Scenario 2: You're crapping your pants in fear because Kenshiro has just pronounced you "already dead".

Either way, "You WA Shock!" seems like the only appropriate response. Flygon wins - BUT WAIT!

Bonus Round (Doesn't count - This is just for fun. Feel free to ignore it if you want.)

Connect the Northern Cross to the Southern Cross in 6 steps or less using anime only. You are forbidden from using Fist Of The North Star, wordplay or actual constellations. (It's easier than you think.)

Score! I would've linked Macross franchise -> Robotech -> Southern Cross, but I can understand why people would choose to ignore Robotech.

And you win... absolutely nothing. tongue Back to our regularly scheduled programme.

Nope, although I do see the rather long-winded connection you, possibly unintentionally made).

The connection would have been:

Blowin' in the Wind -> Bob Dylan -> All Along The Watchtower -> Jimi Hendrix -> Little Wing

Thank you for giving my deductive prowess such high expectations.

Does the song's title include the word "Kaze?"

Does the song's title include the word "Sora?"

Does the song ever use the words kaze, sora, tsubasa, or hane in the lyrics?

''Does the song's title include the word "Sora?" No

Does the song ever use the words kaze, sora, tsubasa, or hane in the lyrics? It doesn't use all of the words listed, but it uses at least one of those words.

Aishiteru? No

It's neither of those. Remember that the song has "kaze" in its title
