Lupin the Trivia - April Edition
« on: April 05, 2007, 12:03:15 pm »
Rules:

1. If you know the correct answer or just want to take a guess at the question posed, go ahead and post it.
2. Within 24hrs, the first person who answers the question correctly will be noted by the question asker and be issued one point.
3. Within the next 24hrs, the person who answered the last question correctly is responsible for posting another question or will forfeit the point earned.
4. After 24hrs, if no one answered the question correctly, the person posting the question earns three points.  He must then give the correct answer and furnish some sort of proof to collect the points.  Anyone may ask a question then.

Guidelines:

Your're allowed to ask any question you want that relates to Lupin III.  If you want to ask an easy question, ask an easy question.  If you want to ask a hard one, by all means, challenge us!  Just make sure you're not vague and that you provide enough information so that others might have a reasonable chance of actually getting it right.  If the mods or I deem a question to not follow these guidelines, we reserve the right to throw it out.

Other Info:

1. Each month, I'll tally everyone's scores and update the "Hall of Fame."  The hall will appear at the top of this thread (in this post, basically).
2. The mods and I will try to sort out any kinks in the game, but we're not necessarily excluding ourselves from playing.
3. Reed has asked that when you go to verify who answered your question correctly (or if no one did), that you try to do it in the post the question was originally asked (use the "modify" button).
4. If you have any questions or want to leave feedback, I've got a separate thread for that right here.

March Scores:



Prizes:

In an effort to boost participation, I'm giving away a prize this month provided we get at least ten new players.  You can choose from any of the following:

$10 USD through US Mail or PayPal

Question 1:

What's Lupin's least favorite food according to the first series and Babylon?  IIRC, I think he's even allergic to it...

Questions should be directed to this thread, but the prizes are for this month's winners.  Everyone gets a fresh start!

Actually, the food Lupin is shown to abhor in "The Man They Call Magician" is not squid, but octopus.

Question #2: Sometime in the early '90s, Bye Bye Liberty Crisis was shown, subtitled in English, on an American broadcast TV station. Tapes of this broadcast subsequently made it into fansub trading circles, with the commercials intact. In what state was the TV station?

Question the Third:
There are at least two things that can keep Jigen from being a sharpshooter.  Name one of them.

Losing his hat—he needs the brim to line up shots. (Though some of the anime, especially the first-series episodes, have been somewhat haphazard about observing this.)

In Tokyo Crisis Jigen has a toothache that prevents him from shooting accurately.

Also, in $1 Money Wars, Jigen has trouble with Lupin's gun (after he loses his own) because "Guns are like women, and Lupin's only listens to him." (He has a similar problem with a "loaner" gun he buys later on.) This cheerfully contradicts other sources, like Albatross: Wings of Death where he pots a half-dozen missiles with Zenigata's automatic, but c'est la vie. (Though, having watched Fuma Conspiracy recently, perhaps I shouldn't say c'est la vie. :) )

How about an injured right hand (1st series)?

That would be another one. Though oddly enough Jigen has absolutely no problem shooting with his left when he's cutting out the target in "The Man They Call Magician."

And you have identified both of them.  The floor is yours, sir.
