I had to laugh at the Kira choices. Good thing it was obvious.

I got them all right as expected. Seeing Heero always brings a smile to my face.

Got all of them right, which I think is a first for me. I did have to guess on a few, as I'm fuzzy on the less recent OVA's.

Hey, I got most of them right and I even haven't watched that many of these (only first trilogy, War in the Pocket, 08th MS team and Unicorn), but the style gives them away pretty easily. I only screwed up on two but I was literally just guessing on those.

Yay for puzzling through process of elimination! I could absolutely only name six, being the number of shows out of the eighteen mugshots I've actually seen. Several more faces I could identify, which narrowed choices to one in some, which in turn narrowed several others to one or two. I think I got only between two to four wrong (hard to tell since the quiz doesn't score me.)

So this is what it feels like to get 100%, neat.

Easily knew the names of everyone except one and but I knew what series he was from so it was a piece of cake.

I wonder how well people would do if ANN didn't include the names of the series with the choices.

I got 11, which is kind of astonishing, since I've only actually watched about 3 of them (Seed, Wing, IBO, plus one episode of Thunderbolt, and Unicorn in the background on Toonami, so I knew the face matched the series). So yeah, I think it would've been worse if the titles weren't included. Smile

That was easier than shooting down a Leo.

My first 100% on one of these, too. The only one that really caused me any sort of hesitation was Seabook, because he's so hopelessly generic looking.

For once I fared well! The UC characters posed little obstacle, surprisingly or otherwise. For the other series (heavens, what are those?) I relied on the art style to a slightly less successful end.

I got 100% as well, but I answered based on the art style for the ones from Gundam entries I haven't seen (eight of them). I have seen some of the unknown to me characters with their romanized names and art styles at anime conventions in art books and such. Thunderbolt's style is definitely easy to remember on its own though.

Pfft. You may as well have asked me if I could recognize letters of the alphabet or numbers from one to ten. Or basic shapes.

My point is, I'm huge Gundam dork, so this was easier than putting socks on.

Surprised at how easy this was for me despite watching only like 5 series all the way through. Thank you, Dynasty Warriors Gundam.

Too easy. Should have used characters from the same series as choices. That would have made me guess on G-Savior because I couldn't remember what anyone looked like.

Really easy quiz for me! I would have identified almost all of the characters even without the multiple choices. The only one that I would not have been able to name is the character from GSavior, but still would have known where he was from.
