Does the series use Spanish naming conventions for characters? No

Is it an adaptation? Yes

Is it Cloud Age Symphony from Last Exile? (Okay, that was really random.) No, but you will need a similarly "random" answer like that to win the round, such is my logic for this hint.

Is it from Urusei Yatsura? No

Is it in any concievable way related to spain? If you are talking about the anime, then no. If you are talking about the hint, then it depends on how you look at it.

How about Urusei Yatsura? Yes, the hint is related to Urusei Yatsura in some way.

How about Rumiko Takahashi? No

One final hint by me: Project Ako is a sequel to Urusei Yatsura.

The OVA? The movie? Neither. As I said many times, these hints require a lot of out of the box thinking to get.

I consider using Google cheating.

And I'm not getting anything particularly revealing. Unless it has to do with Watermelon?

Not all google searches are created equal don'tcha know.

In that case, have ever been on to Urusei Yatsura's entry on The Other Wiki? If you have, have you noticed something on the top of the page, directly underneath the title?

Is the band from Glasgow? No, but you are catching on! cool

And here is the list.

Round 318: I will be amazed if anyone gets this hint, even Pyrite.

Hint 1: Those obnoxious aliens aren't from Spain

Hint 2: Bagpipes

Hint 3: Project Ako is a sequel to Urusei Yatsura

The anime:

The song:

  • Is an OP theme
  • Is not any of the OP themes to Urusei Yatsura
    • Including those from the OV As and Movies
  • Is not Os-uchuujin
  • Is not Cloud Age Symphony
  • Is not a pun on "Spain"

The Hint

  • Is somehow related to Urusei Yatsura
  • But not Rumiko Takahashi
  • Is not related to the Autonomous Communities of Spain
  • Does not refer to the anime's title
    • Or the song's title
  • The word aliens does not refer to foreigners.

The Band:

  • Are not from Glasgow

The Round(?)

  • Has nothing to do with rain falling on the plain

I'm back, and I can see where the hint is going... but we're still nowhere close to the answer.

Is the focus of the anime on

Is there an Android on the series? Is it listed on Artificial Humans? Ridiculously Human Robots? No, no and no, but since you are so close, I will tell you that the series features at least one Hollywood Cyborg.

a Cool Ship? No

Humongous Mecha? No

The Power of Rock / Idol Singers? (Yep, throwing this one out for shits and giggles.) No

sung by a band? Yes

is sung by a female? Yes (the singer in said band is female)

So I'll just list every anime in the SF anime and manga page....[lol] Is the anime?

  • Abara
  • Air Gear

Come, I know you can do better than randomly guessing. The anime in question appears on the Hollywood Cyborg page as well as the Science Fiction Anime and Manga one.

problem is that the set of one is an intersecting set of the other... So this still would lead to that....

  • Cyborg 009?
  • Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha?
  • Apple Seed?

P.S. I'll be out buying some materials for a project. Will return much later...

You really love watching us squirm, don't you?

...Is it Gunslinger Girl's OP, "The Light Before We Land" by The Delgados? (Hollywood Cyborg, Science Fiction Anime and Manga, Spanish-sounding name - named after a Spanish cyclist - of a group from Motherwell, which is the link to "Urusei Yatsura (band)" which eventually became "Projekt A-ko" - which is Glaswegian, both discovered by John Peel... Yes, I'm going off the Wikipedia article.)

Because regardless of the result, my current emotion is linked to the album which this track is taken from. Hint: it's HATE.tongue

Yup.

And your reasoning on the hint(s) was right too, after a massive nudge by me. The bagpipes hint was because bagpipes have a strong association with Scotland, and wasn't quite as obvious as some other items linked to Scotland (haggis, caber tossing, kilts, the Loch Ness Monster etc.) would be.

The ironic thing is, if I said Italy instead of Spain, the round would have finished much earlier, probably around the time when you asked about the naming conventions, even though the hint wouldn't have made any sense if I did that.

Your turn.

(I could've sworn that one of Grain's original rules was that hints shouldn't be overly convoluted, but I can't find it there any more. Guess he gave up. Besides, this is no longer Pyrite logic, this is squarely Jeff Goldblum territory! evil grin)

Let me think of something and I'll get back to you all.

Eh, don't worry about it. I'm not really mad (in spite of what I'm posting), that's just me indulging my Large Ham tendencies. At least it wasn't as bad as that Vocaloid / "1001 Nights" incident.

Anyway,

Round 319: Something to cleanse your minds after that last round.

Hint:

Its canonicity... is questionable.
Its legitimacy... is debatable.
Its origin... is inscrutable.
It is... this song.

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