Round 390: The Likely-To-End-In-Disaster Incredibly Lame Outdated Pop-Culture Reference Dead Giveaway Double Round!

First person to guess either one wins. (Also, please specify which song you're guessing for.)

Hint 1 (for Song 1):

I was gonna start this round,
Until I got high (Wooh-oooh-ooh)
I was gonna use this song I'd found,
But then I got high (La-da-da)
Now it's too damn easy,
And I know why, (Yay-hey)
Because I got high, Because I got high, Because I got high... (La-dada-dadada...)

Hint 2 (for Song 2):

Cresselia used Lunar Dance!

...

...It's super effective?!

Hint 1:

  • Song 1 is not from an anime that aired before 2000.

  • Song 1 is from an anime with 3 or more opening themes.

  • Anime 2 didn't start between the September-to-November period of its year. (It started some time around the June-to-August period of 2011.)
  • Song 2 is not from Tsukuyomi Moon Phase.

Both hints:

  • At least one of these series is still airing / in the process of being released.
  • At least one song is not an opening.
  • At least one song is not from the dub.
  • At least one song is from an anime that involves magic.
  • Neither anime can be considered as being of the "adventure" genre.

Alright, that's it. Going to bed now. Carry on guessing.

Since I don't feel up for digging through all of those facts at the moment,

Did anime 1 start in the fall? Did anime 2 start in the fall?

Is song 2 from Tsukuyomi Moon Phase?

  • Anime 1 started in the fall. (I think, assuming the fall is from September to November. It's hard to break down the seasons when you don't live in a place with seasons.)
  • Anime 2 (as indicated previously) didn't start in the fall. (It started in Summer 2011, assuming "Summer" is June to August.)
  • Song 2 is not from Tsukuyomi Moon Phase.

Is anime 2 related to Type Moon in any way?

does the moon play an important part in anime 2?

Is song 2 Super Affection? Dance... carnival... It makes sense...

Is anime 1 Bobobobo Bobobo?

Is anime 1 listed on either the What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? or the Widget Series page?

Song 2 is Super Affection from Carnival Phantasm. C'mon, flygon, give them a chance!tongue (Total of 31 hints pertaining either to Song 2 or both songs.)

(Having said that, though, your logic was a little off this time. Type Moon + Dancing Theme = "Lunar Dance"; "Super Effective" [sic] was pretty bad wordplay even by my standards.)

Song 1 was To All Tha Dreamers from Yakitate Japan. For anyone who picked up on the "Afroman" reference, the choice of hint should be pretty obvious on hindsight.

[up] But Bobobo has an afro too! Though I was focusing on the lyrics seeming like it was about drugs.

Round (inset round number here): (deleted by G La DOS):

This anime has 10 episodes.

There will be cake if you win this round.'

[up][up]I meant that it's obvious why I chose the hint, not that the hint would be obvious. (I Lied. But seriously, I half-expected people to go to Funny Afro and brute force from there.)

Anyway,

  • Is each episode of "standard" length (~20 minutes, give or take)?
  • Is it an adaptation?
  • Is it an OVA?

Is each episode of "standard" length (~20 minutes, give or take)? If you give or take 5 minutes, then no.

Is it an adaptation? Yes

Is it an OVA? Yes

Please note that if you ask three questions that are answered with a no, then you will be '''blank'''

Firstly, I'm new here, so I apologise if I do something wrong. This seems like a fun game though. Now:

Is the anime Hellsing Ultimate?

Is it "Gradus Vita"?

Is it "Magnolia"?

No worries, we'll guide you along. No major issues with the questions so far. (Just a caveat though, flygon's round has restrictions, in accordance with his signature. Bear that in mind before picking questions.)

Now that you mention it, "Gradus Vita" might just be the correct answer, considering how flygon's invoking GLaDOS and, most likely, "Still Alive".

So is the average length of each episode 25-30 minutes?

Is the main character a teenager?

Is the cake a lie because it's 'Sora Mimi Ca-'*get slapped*?
