Hare+Guu

11. 2 series with grade school idol as major characters.

I won't reveal most of what is right or wrong yet to give others a chance but I'll comment on some

LunaticCrow
6, 11, 17. I don't know (one of) the series so don't know if its correct off the top of my head (not one of the answers I was thinking of, but may be correct)

19. No, but it is by Gainax (or technically Anno Hideki just pre-gainax)

amerowolf
9. DBZ isn't the answer I was thinking about, but I think it does qualify....Did it have an ESPer? Didn't Tien or someone have ESP?

11, 17. I don't know the (one of) series so don't know if its correct off the top of my head (not one of the answers I was thinking of, but may be correct)


Now for some hints for the questions nobody has tried yet:

1. In one of the series, the song is also sung by the main characters in the Christmas OAV. The 2 series are about a decade apart and both are over 100 eps.

3. There are at least 2 series that qualify for this answer that I can think of. One is by one of the most popular anime studios.

13. If you know the spin off OAV of the series Nabeshin is best known for, this is easy.

18. This is also the answer to another question.

20. This fast pased 102 eps series was recently licensed and broadcast on TV in the US (but I think dropped half way through)

Denis you sly man, that's one question I was stuck on, I know the answer nao.

I know the answer to every single one of these, except the first and the last.

1. Denis needs to watch less moe anime.
2. Someone halp.

edit: I know the last one now, but the first question is a killer, I have no freaking clue.

I'm not that fammiliar with Shuffle myself, so I can't vouch for 6's accuracy, but I can for 11&17

Mister Ajikko.

As for 11..I don't have a site ATM that gives a good synapsis, but Luna's a superidol POP SENSATIONE~ who ends up going to Nagasumi's school.

Though I wonder, would Chisame from Negima count? Not thinking about Zazie or a few other wallflowers, but nearly every girl was a major character at some point.

edit: Alternatively, Kare Kano.

Uh...Well...

I am ...Almost...absolutely positive I know number one now. Since I have no interest in winning the prize I shall say it.

Ranma 1/2 and Di Gi Charat Nyo share the same ending theme called Equal Romance. The only reason I have doubt is because in Ranma it's sung by DoCo and in Di Gi it's sung by Prière.

Buuuut. Going by Dennis' clues. Di Gi Charat does in fact have 104 episodes and Ranma has over nine thou--over 100. In Ranma's Christmas OAV Equal romance is indeed sung. Ranma was made in the early 90's and Di Gi charact early 2000's. About a decade apart, yeh?

So it is my final answer. My google-fu is strong.

Tien and Chiaotzu could communicate with eachother via telepathy. This is shown during Tien's first tournament fight with Goku.
