Blue Exorcist Blind Reading
Reading through another anime, this time tackling a random episode of Blue Exorcist, split up into three acts to keep it fresh and give all audience members a chance to choose an impression for a role out of three, such as Ryuk, Asui Tsuyu or even Rock Lee. Anything can happen depending on the roles chosen as we have no idea who the audience will pick.
Dub or Sub!?
Dub or Sub, is a quiz show separated into two categories, one for attendees that watch anime in English Dub, and those who prefer to watch it in Japanese with subtitles. Contestants will be chosen if they have their hand up, hoping that all audience members can have a go. Each category has ten ranks of difficulty, the contestant will pick a number between 1 and 10 each time to randomly pick one, landing on either trivia, audio and visual cues such as screenshots or music. (Guessing the anime the screenshot or music is from). They do start out with one Dragon Ball which can be used at any time for hints...aside from Lightning Rounds. Dragon Balls can also be used to pick a specific question type instead of a number. They can earn more Dragon Balls by going more descriptive with their answer, like not just naming the anime the music is from but giving the name of the track. Lastly, if the contestant gathers 7 Dragon Balls they can skip an entire question.
