Japan loves its certification exams. People in Japan can take tests with different levels to receive certification in subjects ranging from the game Go to abacus to English. The official website of the Attack on Titan television anime announced a new test for fans on Monday. Diehard fans will be able to take the "Shingeki no Kyojin Kentei ~Chōsa Heidan Nyūdan Test~" (Attack on Titan Certification: Survey Corps Enrollment Test) on December 10. Are you brave enough to join the Survey Corps (on paper)?
The test will have two levels: Soldier Class and Squad Leader Class. The exam will test fans' knowledge of both the first and second seasons of the television anime, which is based on the first 13 compiled volumes of Hajime Isayama's original manga. Questions may also come from the Shingeki no Kyojin Inside Kō guidebook.
Test takers will have one hour to answer 100 questions. Fans must answer at least 70 questions correctly to pass the test. People who pass the test will receive a certificate with a special illustration. Only the Tokyo venue for the test will offer limited-edition merchandise in advance of regular sales. The goods will go on sale online on the day after the test.
The test will be held at locations in Sendai, Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka on December 10. The Soldier Class costs 4,500 yen (about US$40), and the Squad Leader Class costs 5,600 yen (US$50). People who want to take both exams will be able to do so for 9,000 yen (US$80). Registration is available now, and the registration period will close on November 7.
