So did it start airing on the Summer 2010 season? Fall 2010? No. Yes.

Dear god, it's not Hetalia is it? No.

Truth Of My Destiny? No.

Hikari no Firmento? No.

Hint 2: A certain fictional guide may help.

I actually find this funny. For once a unique quality actually makes this harder rather than easier. Then again, it's easy to overlook.

Round 448:

I swear what else could be left for this? *winds up getting another 4 questions on this*

Is it an adaption of history? A textbook? An adaption of an adaption of an adaption?

Does it have exactly 26 episodes? Is it within the top 1000 anime on MAL? Do you think this could last another 30 posts at this rate?

Is it Everyone Stitch The Friends?

Is the song from Stitch!? I know it's a summer series, but that is all I can think of, being an adaptation of a western cartoon, which is something which we didn't actually cover.

Is it an adaptation of a Show Within a Show?

DAMMIT. For a second I thought this round was going to break the fact record. I swear, it feels like mentioning the fact count is a jinx. Shark got it. It's "Lovely Girls' Anthem" from Tantei Opera Milky Holmes Act 2.

"Lovely Girls' Anthem" - Tantei Opera Milky Holmes - 67 facts

Explanation

Checking Each Fact

  • It may be arguable that Milky Holmes is not a fantasy series depending on how you define a fantasy series, but considering the various super powers and that porky guy's tranformation into a bishonen in season 2, * I'm pretty sure it should at least be borderline fantasy.
  • There was a ghost in season 1.
  • The school was Sherlock Holmes' Detective Academy so the name doesn't indicate whether it would count as a high school, but judging by the ages of the main characters*, it should be safe to say that it is equivalent to high school.
  • The first season aired in 2010 and I usually would use the airdate of the first season when talking about when the anime first aired.
  • It was an adaptation of a radio drama. (I still have a hard time believing this)
  • Funimation and Nico Nico are streaming season 2 and Crunchyroll is streaming season 1 in the US.
  • It had a Summer special inbetween seasons.

Round 448:

Hint: Wait, he was there? Wait... Why was he there?

Frankly I thought flygon was going to get the last round after about 40 facts. I didn't expect that he wouldn't even bother asking if it was "Lovely Girls' Anthem". Hm, I'm actually amazed that no one asked any questions about the studio. Speaking of which...

Is the studio that produced it listed on the Names to Know in Anime page?

Does it have anything to do with strawberries?

Is it a romantic comedy?

... By the way, shark. How did you figure it out?

I was checking a list of the anime that started airign on the fall 2010 season, and I read that the franchise was owned by a card game, so I thought it was that, it wasn't until after I had asked the question that I read on wikipedia that it was originally a Radio Drama.
