Erm... Not to be a wet blanket, but if you use all of the questions thus far provided, this is gonna be (or, potentially could be, depending on which questions are randomly assigned) a HARD test. "Princess of Mars"? Omae?! Even if someone was an active member of the community here, they'd have trouble with some of these (and, quite understandably, would have little desire to scour the vast thread archives for the answers).

It's true that the fact that these are multiple choice questions will help (they are, right?), and I suppose that current members can give assistance to active members to help them through the test (even if a newbie had the guts to ask for answers, I presume that no one here would help them), but even so, it seems a bit excessive.

Eh, but I gripe. :P Here's a couple of trivia questions, just so that this hasn't been a complete waste of a post.

Q. How many screw decorations does "The Wanderers" version of Ifurita have on her costume?

A. Seven.

Q. What anime character is displayed on the large banner being put up by the Anime Club in the first episode of "The Wanderers"?

A. Magical Girl Pretty Sammy.

Q. What manga is Katsuhiko Jinnai reading in his childhood flashback in "The Wanderers"?

A. Tenchi Muyo.

Oh, no, I saw this.  ;)  But I was seeing more prominent EH brainiacs posting, so I kind of took it in stride waiting for someone else to be a bit easier on our future test takers.  :P

These are all good for the advanced test, which I said would be available anyway...

The BASIC test I'm thinking would ask the basics:

Q: [picture] Who is this?
A: [person]
...

Q: [picture] What function did this person serve?
A: Priestess
B: Background character
...

Q: Who was the mysterious person that showed passionate affection to Makoto in the beginning of the OAV?
A: Ifurita
B: Jinnai (Hi, Xel)
C: Nanami
...

^^ Note: Probably four answers will be available per question, and you guys DON'T need to post "wrong answers"... I suspect I'm going to have a pool of related correct answers from all questions, but the test script will apply them randomly to all questions (of course including one correct answer.)




Basically, anything the taker could gleem just by watching the series.  This shows that you watched El-Hazard and retained information (or were good enough to get out your DVDs and scour test answers.  ;) )

Alternatively, extreme trivia questions of the like we've seen so far proves that you're an EH nut job, and therefore can have access to the potentially higher value material.  :P

Good.  Perhaps tommorow I'll start rigging the script together on this alone, at least for the time being.  This ought to be enough for a basic test at least.  Thanks a bunch, MrWhat!  ;D

I was obviously (I hope) trying to have fun with some of the false answers.  But if The Committee doesn't like them, feel free to use some less fan-servicey false answers.

Good job MrWhat! The only misgiving I have about this quiz though is that alot of the questions are dub-specific. Might be a bit misleading to fans who have never watched the dub.  ^^;

Nah, I found them funny, to be honest.  :P

As to what Saucer said, while I noticed that, I also find that almost anyone who's seen El-Hazard has seen the dub [and typically commented with much praise].  

But technically, I think it's all fair game.  Are you a hardcore El-Hazard fan who'd watch it both ways or not!?  ;)  Remember this is only to gain access to extended things like MP3's anyway, you always get base features.

Let's look at one that I know can only be assumed by DVD owners (who can't read Kanji):

Nananmi's
Hayashi's
Keiichi's
Makoto's


The DVD fails to subtitle Japanese words that you're supposed to "read", such as Makoto's name.  Now, one can infer it, but it took me a while to figure out even what the hell Jinnai was looking at.   ^^;


Here's a very dub specific:
Quote
In OVA1, when Fujisawa first heard Rune Venus scream, what did he assume?
she had been drenched with cold water
Londs was threatening her
a flying fish had flown down her blouse
she was out of alcohol too


Now, even if you weren't entirely familiar with the dub, surely you could infer that the alcohol related answer would be the right one.


Quote
In OVA1, why did Nanami try to interview Jinnai in the ruins?
she was doing it for extra credit
Makoto dared her to do it
she wanted to show off her new student uniform
the Broadcast Club paid her 1000 yen


The answer is that Nanami got paid, right?  But the dub fails to note an amout.  I'm assuming the "1000 yen" comes from the subtitles, although I can't be bothered to check at the moment.  :P


Anyway.  Maybe for reference I could note something like "[Dub Specific]" next to questions that are that way.  But even so, I think any good El-Hazard viewer should give the dub a chance, even those who aren't accustomed to putting any faith into dubs.

But other than very few particular questions, for the most part you can either recognize it as dub questioning OR as just "I know that scene" type language.  


For example:

Quote
In OVA1, what was Alielle's 'Serious News' that she forgot when she molested Shayla?


I'm not sure if Alielle says "serious news" in the scene in subtitle, but hey, how many times was Shayla molested?  And surely Alielle was to bring news.  Thus, even though the wording hints the dub, it's not specific enough to not be answerable.




Now, having said all that, the only potential problem left is that some people -- albeit very few, but some -- are "Wanderers Only" watchers, only planning to "Get around" to OAV1.  (Usually because of price of OAV problems. :P)  Should they be discredited as "you're not good enough for MP3's anyway!", or should there be a Wanderers-based test?

Remember this is only to gain access to extended things like MP3's anyway, you always get base features.

Right.  Also, I didn't try to separate easy questions from hard questions-- I might be "too far gone" to judge that.  Maybe a more casual fan would be a better judge of difficulty.

Besides that, it's easy to make an easy question difficult, or vice versa, by changing the wording of the question, or by changing the false answers so that they're very close to the true answer.  I've taken some nasty multiple-choice exams like that  ^^;

Yeah, that's fair.  I'm a subtitles guy myself, but I've always assumed that the majority of fans are dub watchers.

FWIW, I ran the subtitles the whole time, but I was constantly flipping back and forth between the sub and dub tracks.  I wasn't really trying to work up a Fair And Balanced set of questions-- I was just trying to come up with as many workable questions as I could in one pass.

Well, I was going to run OVA2/Alt-World for questions next.  But if you'd prefer, I'll run the Wanderers for questions instead.  It's been almost a year since I watched more than one Wanderers episode in a sitting, anyway.  Yeesh...

Again, FWIW, I was assuming that the test(s) would mix questions on all four series.  That's why I started most of those questions with "In OVA1..."

Ah, well, okay.  That's fine if you're going to.  I'll just wait then.
