The anime is not from the Haruhi Suzumiya or Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchises or Tora Dora.

Is it a TV Series? Does the anime have at least one OVA? Does the anime have at least one Movie?

Yes, Technically no (for precise wording, see below), No.

Note to all: when I'm referring to hints about the anime, I'm talking about a uniquely-named run. (E.g. I consider Gundam SEED to be a different anime from Gundam SEED Destiny, and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (original series) to be different from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's.) If I'm talking about the intellectual property as a whole, I'll say "franchise" or something of the sort and clarify accordingly. I'll highlight* the points where this might cause things to be ambiguous (MASSIVE HINT).

Recap Time:

Round 277

Variant Rules: no questions relating to series length or release dates.
Hint:

The song:

  • is not What Is Love?
  • is not Suki desu ka?
  • is not Ring My Bell.
  • is not God Knows.
  • is an OP.
    • is not an ED.
    • is therefore not one of the first seven EDs.
    • is therefore not the 8th or 9th ED.
    • is therefore not the 10th or 11th or 12th ED.
    • is therefore not the 13th ED.
  • is not Ready Steady Go.
  • is not Link? No.
  • is not Saturday Night Fever from Initial D.

The anime:

  • Bonus hint (if it wasn't obvious): there is more than one uniquely-named anime in this particular anime's franchise.
  • is a television series.*
    • I repeat, is a television series.*
  • is set in Japan.*
    • I repeat, is set in Japan.*
  • is an adaptation.
    • is an adaptation of a light novel.
      • which has a Wikipedia page that lists its demographic as Male.*
    • is not an adaptation of a manga.
  • is not about three idiots guys.
  • is not The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya.
  • has characters in high school.
  • is not Sora No Otoshimono.
  • is not Shōnen Genre.
  • is not Fantasy genre.
  • is not an OVA.*
    • does not have at least one OVA (but the franchise as a whole does have at least one).*
  • does not have a movie.
  • does not have a Cake Eater main character.
  • has a TV Tropes page.*
  • Can be found on the Memes/Anime page.
  • is not Baka Test.
  • is not Ro Kyu Bu.
  • is not Allison And Lillia.
  • is Seinen genre.
  • is not Shoujo genre.
  • is partially Slice of Life (both the anime and the source material).*
  • is not from the Lyrical Nanoha franchise.
  • is not Tora Dora.

The hint: (which for the record, is the video for the Saturday Night Live skit A Night At The Roxbury. It isn't "Goodnight Everybody!".)

  • is not related to the anime.
  • is related to the song title.
  • is related to the lyrics.
  • is not related to the performer's name.

Not an OVA, but has a unique title.... SO the anime IS a SECOND SEASON?

The anime is a second season.

The light novel series is licensed in the US.

It is on this page.

The franchise includes a manga series.

...Yeah. Thanks for putting me out of my misery.tongue (For formality's sake, could you ask the final question more directly?)

Anyway, the answer is, Sore ga, Ai Deshou from Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu!, by Mikuni Shimokawa. I'm giving this to Pokenatic with 51 hints, not counting the bonus hint of it belonging to a larger franchise.

...Now, I expect some people to get annoyed at me for this, but I will contend that the following differences are sufficient to distinguish between FMP (and The Second Raid) and Fumoffu:

FMP in general:

  • Mecha anime
  • 3x TV series + 1 OVA in total, including Fumoffu
  • Set partly in Japan and pretty much all over the world
  • Action + Romantic Comedy

Fumoffu:

  • No mecha anywhere (Bonta-kun doesn't count)
  • 1x TV series only, no OVA
  • Set in Japan - they don't really leave the country AFAIK
  • Slice of Life + Romantic Comedy (as far as regular "life" gets for Sousuke and Kaname anyway.)

...Yeah, pretty much sucked the fun out of that one. As for the hint?

Haddaway: "What is love?"
Mikuni Shimokawa: "Sore ga, ai deshou?" ("Isn't that love?", depending on how you translate it.)

Let's see... I think it's roughly equivalent to saying "Shouldn't we love." Desu is is, shou is suggestive, and ai is a noun form. So it's "Shouldn't there be love."

Man, I wish I'd studied Japanese more thoroughly in college.

Eh, I've seen it translated as "Isn't that love?", "That's love, isn't it?" and "I guess that's love", all of which lead to the conclusion that translators are as indecisive about love as they are about the correct way to render this line. tongue
