I'm going to try and interpret what you just wrote.

  • I am not a Mecha.
  • It is not related to the Alien franchise.
  • Uh... Your Mom has ULTIMATE SUPER HAPPY FUN TIME EXPLOSIONS!

Okay, something went wrong somewhere. Let's try again.

  • Mecha? It has mecha, as stated earlier.
  • Aliens? There is evidence of extraterrestrial life. (Short answer: Yes.)
  • ULTIMATE SUPER HAPPY FUN TIME EXPLOSIONS?!? YMMV on the rest, but there are explosions.

Summary time:

Round Three Hundred: THIS! IS! BAKA!

Hint: Variant Rules: No questions on air dates, release dates or series length.

The anime:

  • Is not Baka Test.
  • Has an adaptation.
  • Is not Star Driver.
  • Is not Ore Imo.
  • Is not The Adventures Of Mikuru-Chan.
  • Is probably targeted at the Shonen demographic.
    • Is therefore probably not targeted at the Seinen demographic.
  • Is a Mecha anime.
  • Is not Mokei Senshi Gunpla Builders Beginning G.
  • Uses the song as an OP/ED to a miniseries of the original series (technically).
    • The miniseries is not in the form of mini episodes.
    • The miniseries is not in the form of several full-length episodes.
    • The miniseries is not an OVA.
  • There is evidence of extraterrestrial life (i.e. Aliens.)
  • There are explosions. Whether they're ULTIMATE SUPER HAPPY FUN TIME EXPLOSIONS is purely subjective.

The song:

  • Might seem illegal but is, in fact, legal.
    • Is usually used as an image song (or non-OP/ED) but is used once or more as an OP/ED.
    • Is not an image song.
      • Is not an image song for a female character.
    • Is not normally used as an image song for a character that is normally a jerkass, such as one from, say, Haruhi Suzumiya. (e.g. it's not Lost My Music).
  • Is not Sora Mimi Cake.
  • Is not an Opening Theme.
  • Is not sung by a band.
  • Is not titled Legal. (Seriously?)
    • Is not titled Illegal. (SERIOUSLY?)
  • Is not the ED to Super Milk Chan.
  • Is not God Knows.
  • Is commercially released on an album in Japan.

And BTW, Risu: "He". wink

Are you related to Kyubey, by any chance?

No, no, never-mind. That's not a real question.

Oh, and thank you. I'll remember that.

Is the anime in question an adaptation?

Hmmmm... why am I thinking Xenosaga?

It's not Tengen Toppa GURREN LAGANN!!! or something is it?

Libera Me from Hell or something, like in Ep 25 or something where it was basically used in place of the normal opening song? I think? Or was that 26? or 27? or 3994? One of the episodes!

  • Is the anime in question an adaptation? Since it's from a miniseries of the original series, it is by definition an adaptation. So Yes.
  • It's not from Xenosaga.
  • It's not Libera Me From Hell.
  • It's not from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

Is it from Gundam Seed/ Gundam Seed Destiny? Or Mobile Suit Gundam/ Zeta Gundam?

That's really the only Mecha series I can think of that have a notable spin off series that isn't an OVA.

Haven't seen many gundam series. So I'm not going to try to brute force this one and steal someone round. Good luck to whoever gets it. Sleepy time.

So how is one of the song legal in Gundam Seed? (This is why I had to get Tomu to define "miniseries". Note the wording.) Which hint do you think it conflicts with?

[up] I thought you meant that you were sure that no song in Gundam SEED was legal for this game. I'm pretty sure it's legal (as stated at the start), which I'll explain once someone gets it. So I was asking if you thought it contradicted a particular hint.

That wasn't so hard, was it? It's Akatsuki no Kuruma. 38 hints.

Now, for the potentially-contentious parts:

[up]That could have referred to Vestige as well.... since they're both IN that was used as an ED/OP for the Epilogue/miniseries.

It could've, but Vestige was an OP, and Gundam SEED Destiny most definitely had some Harem elements. (But that's a small issue anyway. Someone would've got it sooner or later.) Anyway, it's your round, DJ. Take it away!
