Anime Quizes

Otaku Link 3 will be hosting a total of 3 different Anime Quizes! Test your anime knowledge and battle other participants to claim your prize! Each quiz will cover anime from a different decade to make sure a wide variety of anime is covered! The quizzes will be able to be taken from your phone by entering a specific URL you will receive on the day of the event. If you’re familiar with Kahoot, it's similar to that, so although it's tempting No Inappropriate name please XD. 

 

Each quiz is 15 questions long and they will be scattered throughout the day around other activities that will be going on.

 

Now the most important part, the PRIZES! Each winner will receive £10 store credit to our Otaku World store located in the Eagle Market, Derby. 

 

How do we pick a winner if multiple people all get the answers right I hear you ask, the quicker you answer the question the more points you get!

 

Quiz 1: 1990 - 2000 Anime

Quiz 2: 2000 - 2010 Anime 

Quiz 3: 2010 - 2022 Anime

Live Music

MION

MION is a singer - songwriter from Japan who is currently based in the UK. She won the national YAMAHA Music Revolution competition in Japan when she was only 16! This is what helped her launch her professional singing career. 

 

Since that time she has been active for over 10 years, seeing national success across Japan by performing as a soloist, also becoming popular in Canada and Korea. Her hit single SUMMER MAGIC topped the Oricon Music Charts in 2016. MION has also performed at major music festivals supporting popular anime music stars such as Eir Aoi (SAO, Kill la Kill), Silent Siren (Anohana) and Nami Tamaki (Gundam Seed, D Gray - Man) just to name a few.

 

For her live, inspired and beautiful performance at Otaku Link she will be singing a mix of her own singles and some of the more famous anime songs. You do not want to miss this amazing opportunity to hear anime songs sung live and by an amazing professional. 

 

DJ Mannimal 

 

Attendees of Otaku Link 1 and 2 are probably clued in on who DJ Manimal is now and what he brings to the event. If you’re new let me quickly set the scene. DJ Manimal is a Yuko Fox running away from the God of sea and sky, Susanno. The only weapon he wields, his music. 

 

He carries his audience through a magical melody fluttered with Anime songs, KPOP and to break it up, a little bit of trance. His set will take through a range of feelings as emotions from the anime you recognize bubble up to the surface, it's like you’re reliving the first time you watched that anime. DJ Manimal has a visual element to his performance, behind him will be AMV’s (Anime Music Videos) to aid his performance and help engage the audience. KPOP and Trance are added to break the set up and give people time to recoup from the hype anime moments. This type of DJing is not being done by anyone else, it's another must see!
