    A meme's been going around social media lately about filling out a Bingo sheet with your favorite characters from things. I thought it would be fun to do an anime version of that here and share with everybody! Fill out your own, and mark those of others to see if you can get a bingo!
    I'll start things off with mine, and then put a blank version below:

    Ah, I remember a bingo thread on Hummingbird, though it was more about presenting one's fave series, and seeing how much other people knew of them. I remember intentionally putting more obscure stuff in the corners and less obscure stuff in the interior, culminating in one's choice of a Ghibli movie among two or three serving as the "free space".

    Maybe I should do a similar thing here?

    Not sure what Hummingbird is, but the idea about obscure in the corners and less obscure toward the middle isn't bad! Probably a good way to go about it the, I didn't even think of that

    Happy to say I only didn't know 5 of yours, @JigenDaisuke but do you get a bingo if you also like the characters you put in a row or do you just have to know who they are? I'm unclear on the rules.

    If it's the latter mine will be real easy

    We have reigen and JoJo in common, niiice

    I mean, it'd certainly be more interesting than just putting my first 24 fave characters in order.

    Hummingbird.me was another anime listing site; it was later rebranded as kitsu.io which it is now. Someone once posted a fad involving something like summarizing one's tastes or fave series in a bingo sheet.

    I guess you can play on three tiers:
    * recognition bingo - series name
    * recognition bingo - character name
    * actually-also-a-fave bingo

    Incidentally I don't watch the right shows so both of yours are pretty tough for me. lol

    Personally I fill those of others out on the basis of who I also like, because I know many of the ones you have on some level but I only really like All Might, Reigen, Violet, Oldseph, Haruko, and Sanji. SO close to a bingo lol

    I was so close to a fucking 5x5 but I don't recognize the far-left dude in 4th row from top. But the style looks familiar.

    Also, do you guys just use Photoshop? I was hoping there'd be a template somewhere you can just search/paste these in, but alas.

    That would be Dazai from Bungou Stray Dogs, I believe :D but you are of good taste sir.

    I use Gimp, sort of a free photoshop.

    Well, this took a while, but here it is.


    I tried to get good coverage of different franchises, and include something iconic about every character in each (except where none were available, or where the character's plainness is characteristic of them).

    FYI, one of them doesn't technically appear in an anime series, but her in-game avatar does, so I'll give you that one as a freebie.
    It's BlackRose, from the .hack// franchise. She briefly appears in one of the anime specials, but her story is covered much more thoroughly in the LN series (Infection/Mutation/Outbreak/Quarantine), which tells her side of the same story as the the games do, though the games are about Kite's perspective. The novels also cover some of BlackRose's offline life.

    Ayyyy I like...Homura and Shinji. Lol. I think I know 3 others here tho? Is one a Tales character? I have no clue with the majority tho ngl
  16. GlennMagusHarvey

    GlennMagusHarvey Well-Known Member

    @JigenDaisuke yeah one is a character from the Tales franchise.

    And yeah some of these are pretty obscure. I would expect people to get the second in the top row, at least the right three in the second row, the two in the middle in the third row, the two on the ends of the fourth row, and the fourth and maybe the first in the last row, based on what shows each character is from and what roles they play in them. Those are all reasonably well-known shows, I think.

    Meanwhile, top right corner and the one to its left are a rather obscure show, and bottom right corner is a secondary character in a show of medium obscurity, specifically in a look that doesn't get as much screentime as her other look. Center row ends are both obscure shows.

    Fourth row center is the freebie I mentioned, because she doesn't really show up in the anime with this look at all.

    No offense meant, but it probably wasn't really my sort of thing. Specifically because
    it just felt ridiculously contrived, with the teacher laying out a pile of rules one at a time telling the students how they just can't get around his absurd conditions. "Death game" types of stories tend not to be my thing and this may have felt similar.
