Want to know how much of a hopeless nerd you are?! Want to prove your otakudom to no one who cares?! Want to know how much more time you’ll likely waste on Japanese cartoons?! Take my anime quiz! I’m starting off with the Novice Level quiz, and they will increase in difficulty! Rules are simply – no damn google, and get the questions right!
Because this is the novice quiz, the grading scale is a bit more harsh. If you get all the questions correct, you are an anime expert! If you get 18 right, you are very knowledgeable about anime! If you get 16 right, you pretty much know what you’re talking about! If you get 14 right, you are getting good, but may have a ways to go! If you get 12 right, you have probably just branched into otakudom! Under 10, you fail you fucking n00b!
