I already have the ones from 3 currently active Shonen Jump anime series - one with a stripped-down reset, one with headbands you used to be able to buy at hot topic, and one that was at one point licensed by 4Kids.
1. If you read his series right now, you'd see that this stretchy hero isn't always so upbeat. 2. He wants to be the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them is his real test, to train them is his cause. 3. This guy was always really upbeat considering he stared in three series about planets blowing up and wishing the dead back to life. 4. Orange isn't really a good color on a guy who's job requires stealth.
1-8. Here's a real easy hint for all of them, a few days before this quest was even started a new concept page was created dedicated entirely to these darker sides of characters. Pretty good timing I guess.
1 - 3. One is a robot (a very classic robot who even got an american movie made about him), one is a cyborg (who I'm sure has to worry about rust on the open seas), and one is a guy who just has metal body parts (still better than what a relative of his got stuck with).
1. Pervy Plush toy who sometimes substitutes in for the lead hero of the show. 2. A mascot for a theme park who packs lots of heat. 3. A doctor so nice they named him twice. 4. This character and his partners are always blasting off. 5. Aye, his name fits this talking animal's personality well.
@ jrnemanich don't forget in exorcise you have to find the character and the demon that's possessing him, be sure to check them all ;) As for oil change 1 when people talk about a boy with metal parts in it, this character comes to mind of most animes fans, even for the ambiguity of his name..
Thanks to everyone for all the help. However, I still cannot get the following:
Don't like you #2 Exorcise #6 and #7 Talking #2 and #5
I've been clicking and reading and searching, but I'm stumped. I have to admit I have big gaps in my knowledge of anime. Any help is appreciated. Please note that I have read these clues multiple times, but nothing's clicking.
I'm sure I will kick myself when I find some of these. I know that some of these answers are about shows I haven't even heard of.
Edit: I got Don't Like You #2. Still trying to figure out the rest.
