Alright here's the next question...

Buuh.. i checked Wiki and surprisingly the question that i wanna asked can be find easily there...i thought it's gonna be hard. So... I'm gonna tinker the question a bit to make it harder... if no one can get it right inthe next 18 hours, I'll change it to the original one that can be easily searched :wink:

So, here it goes..


There's a manga character who is a smoker. The cigarette brand he smoked is a fictious brand that derived or can even be considered as a pun from a real-live cigarette brand in Japan. This brand is the most popular cigarette brand in Japan. The pun on the brand completely change the meaning and made to match the nuances of the manga.

Hint:
1.This manga contain violence and several adult material and rightfully so, intended for adult.
2.This manga spawn a movie version that brought controversy in the year of 2000
3. The original real-live brand of the cigarette was once a sponsor of an F1 team.
4. The main character to the live-action movie adaptation of the manga was played by the same actor who also star as a main character to a famous live-action movie also based on manga and also contain a lot of death


The Question:
1. What is the name of the fictional Cigarette brand?
2. What manga we are talking about?
3. Who is the character that smoke the cigarette?

Anyone can guess...?? I think this will be quite a toughie... but who knows?? Looks like there's plenty of people in this forum who loves violence, guro manga/anime. I'll add the hints every few hours in case nobody can guess..
Uchi kaeru....

Hmmm....The best guess I can make is:

1. Wild Seven
2. Battle Royale
3. Shogo Kawada

I don't think that's right, though....

Correct. Why would you think it's wrong??

The real-live brand is Mild Seven, the most famous Japanese Cigarette brand, once a sponsor for Benetton and Renault Formula 1 team. Shogo Kawada is the one who smoke it. Battle Royale is the manga, the live-action movie brought huge controversy back at 2000 (because of the violence, and indirect relation to the Nevada-tan case) the live-action Movie version featured Fujiwara Tatsuya as Nanahara Shuya, Fujiwara Tatsuya has also played the role of Yagami Light for the live action movie of Death Note.

Next Q is yours..

I guess I just doubt myself sometimes. :?

Now the next question may be very trivial indeed.



In the manga, Zombie Powder, by Tite Kubo, what is the name of Elwood's favorite brand of clothing? It's mentioned in the first volume of the manga.

There is a manga which has an anime which ends completely differently from the manga.
In the english dub of this anime, there is a group which makes a reference to the legend of King Arthur.
What is the name of the band of mercenaries hired by the youngest member of this group in the manga?
What is the last question asked of the leader of said band?

Vampires?? originally H-Manga artist ??

Gotta be Hellsing !! I'm pretty sure Kouta Hirano originally wrote Hellsing as a H-manga...

as for the Arthurian and the word of the leader, i got no clue... I won't know unless i do some internet research.

well, you are right about Hellsing being a possibility, though I don't remember any Arthurian Legend references...

The name of the organization changes? is that why you said that in the Anime it refers to Arthur? or is it the same and thus is a reference to King Arthur verbatim...

man, this is a hard one

Wait a minute...

Mercenary?? Is it the Wild Geese?? Pip?

I only read the manga, and it was a long time ago... but i'm sure his last word was said to Seras, and then she sucks his blood... then she became real/true vampire.

as for what he said, i completely forgot...

Let's see.... *searching the internet*

Bleah, can't find anything, it seems nobody care about what Pip said, everything i found was about Alucard..

Now.. where do i stashed all my old Mangascan...

There is indeed a difference between the names of a certain group in the japanese and english versions. In the english dub of the anime, there is an Arthurian reference that does not exist in the original japanese.
Oh, and doesn't Seras have to drink Alucard's blood in order to become a true vampire? I must have misread that somewhere.
Edit: Just to clarify, it's the last question someone asks Pip(up to volume 91), not the last thing Pip says.

So.. since 24 hours passed, nobody can answer the question (i only barely managed to get near the answer), Sithobi1 already answered his own question. I'll post the next question.

There's a plaque for a famous Baseball player in front of a Baseball stadium in Japan. This stadium is most famed (especially in non-japanese manga/anime lover community) for holding the National Tournament for High School Baseball. This stadium also held the home game for a a famous Pro Baseball Team.

The question:

1. What is the name of the stadium?
2. What is the name of the Pro Baseball team that use the stadium as their homeground?
3. Who is the player whose plaque commemorating him is erected in front of the stadium?
4. Name the High School Competition(s) contested in this stadium.
5. Name at least 5 manga/anime that feature the competition.

Try to answer them without the use of wiki :D
Uchi kaeru....
