How many Preliminaries qualifiers do you know ?

Post by Toady » Wed Feb 23, 2011 8:03 pm

Hello !

There are so many characters you can vote for in the Preliminaries, so I wonder if all of them are well-known. I'd like to know how many of them do you know on the list of 144 Candidates that you can find here
EDIT by Crisu:
http://www.internationalsaimoe.com/cont ... ounter.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I provided a page that helps you count them.
Depending, it may be better for you to count the ones you DON'T know rather than the ones you do.
Plus, you could add who are the characters you don't know ; it'll be interesting to see if 2010-2011 are the ones not known, or if it's rather the older ones.

Personally, I don't know those girls because I didn't watch their anime :

Yamamoto Nanako (Hanamaru Yōchien)
Sendō Erika (Fortune Arterial)
Chrome Dokuro (Katekyō Hitman Reborn!)
Yuno (Hidamari Sketch)
Hoshina Utau (Shugo Chara!)
Amano Tōko (Bungaku Shōjo)
Enma Ai (Jigoku Shōjo)
Rose (Dragon Crisis!)
Oikawa Tsurara (Nurarihyon no Mago)
Nessa (Fractale)
Hinamori Amu (Shugo Chara!)

So I know 133 of them :surprised: I don't plan to watch any of these shows now as there are almost always only one characters to learn about... But I'll watch them if they make it to the Regular Season !

Funny, I'm also at 133/144 :P.
The characters I don't know are:
Kuroi Mato (Black ★ Rock Shooter)
Haibara Ai (Detective Conan)
Mōri Ran (Detective Conan)
Yuno (Hidamari Sketch)
Enma Ai (Jigoku Shōjo)
Chrome Dokuro (Katekyō Hitman Reborn!)
Hinamori Amu (Shugo Chara!)
Hoshina Utau (Shugo Chara!)
Astraea (Sora no Otoshimono)
Ikaros (Sora no Otoshimono)
Nymph (Sora no Otoshimono)

BRS and Sora no Otoshimono I should watch soon. For Reborn, I should start reading the manga in a near future. Jigoku Shoujo and Hidamari are plan to watch for me but no high priority.
Don't plan to watch Detective Conan nor Shugo Chara.

Had a little spare time. You can use this page to help you.

http://www.internationalsaimoe.com/cont ... ounter.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I wrote it up really quick, so there can be bugs. Just click the checkboxes next to the people you know ... or don't know. :P Whichever way you want to use the counter at the top of the page.

Edit: I scored a 96. Groups 14 and 15 were the only ones where I knew everyone in it.

How do you define 'know'? Cause I have three different numbers now xD
- If I only count girls I saw in their respective animes, I have 101.
- I know the personality of 11 more girls, so I can also say I know 112 even if I haven't seen them playing on the screen.
- And finally I can also say that I know 137 girls because I can immediately recall their faces.

144/144 -__-'

Well, actually it's more like 143,5/144. I did see Ai from Detective Conan, but only when watching Detective Conan episodes at random. I'm not following the series at all.
Even in the ranked non-qualified characters, I know them all but one (from Hidan no Aria, so I guess I'll have to wait for the spring seasons to begin before meeting that girl)

I don't know if I should be proud or ashamed of this =D

I know 122.

Just to be clear, my "know" is defined as having watched the anime and seen the girl in question appear.

I am not quite sure what you mean by knowing participants. Assuming you meant counting girls from anime series that I have watched. I have 124 in total.
I also excluded girls from the series that I have not finished at least 50% of total episodes.

I have less notable numbers (which didn't leave me with an option at which I could choose), but I counted (by hand, didn't notice the checkboxes until I was part of the way through the list) by the second method you mentioned.
I haven't watched the anime Shana is from, but she's talked about enough that I have a fairly clear idea about her.

I'll do another count later, when I have more time, but right now I believe I recognise less than half of the girls, mainly because I've been too busy to start watching this season's anime.

Just redid the count by the check boxes, 65 total. That actually saddens me. Though some of the characters I might have checked if there were faces to connect. I operate by appearance, names don't often stick with me.
I usually recognize actors by the characters they play more than by hearing their names for instance.

in loose definition of knowing the face, role in the plot, and basic personality, I know them all because I had to research them all while making translations and other preparations... There are some I know little bit less than others, so I decided to not to mark 144, but 1 notch lower.

Those I don't know:
- Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)
- Lucy Heartfilia (Fairy Tail)
- Yamamoto Nanako (Hanamaru Yōchien)
- Enma Ai (Jigoku Shōjo)
- Alice (Pandora Hearts)
- Ika-Musume (Shinryaku! Ika Musume)

And there are 3 Higurashi girls that I was forced to know, even though I never watch a single episode.
I think I should categorize them as not known to me.
- Furude Hanyū
- Furude Rika
- Ryūgū Rena


So I know 135 of them defined by "Those included in the series I thoroughly watched"


On a side note, these three girls are in the series I dropped half way through.
So they are considered as known to me.
- Nino (Arakawa Under the Bridge)
- Nessa (Fractale)
- Busujima Saeko (Highschool of the Dead)
