Taiko Time 8th Anniversary Quiz: The Questions

Welcome back to the Anniversary Quiz for the seventh time! We have once again painstakingly came up with eight questions to test your Taiko no Tatsujin knowledge. Are you up to the challenge?

Yeah, we know for the last few years not many people actually enter the quiz, but if you want to enter, please send your answers together with your nickname to be displayed via one of the following methods by the deadline of September 6 2018:
The answers and results will be announced on September 13 2018. This year we'll be trying to get the highest scoring participant a special dedication on this blog like a special feature post, so do also leave your choice in the submission (within reason, that is; if you won but your idea turns out to be too unrealistic to pull off, we'll discuss other options with you).

Unless otherwise stated, all questions in this quiz assumes the status as of July 21 2018 (e.g. counting Nintendo Switch Version and the addition of Dangan Notes on Blue ver.).

Question 1: Spotlight for Kat-chan
Starting off with a dedication to possibly the favorite Taiko brother of some, what is conanically Kat-chan's favorite song on Taiko no Tatsujin Blue ver.?

Question 2: Smartphone Charades
Name six free-to-play mobile games that collaborated with franchises that Taiko no Tatsujin also collaborated with, and of course name the respective collab parties as well. At least two of your answers should have their collabs started on the same calendar year as the Taiko collab.

Question 3: Overseas Human Rights Revisited
Rank all Asian ver. 3rd generation arcade firmware versions by the gap between the Japanese and Asian releases, from shortest to longest.

Question 4: Dokodon in the Details
The following strings of characters all follow a certain pattern in reference to a song's notecharts. With the first three strings as examples, figure out which songs the last three strings are pointing to.
  • ex-484dkkddkkddkkddkkdd = Yawaraka Sensha
  • 1142(Kdd)4KKKK = Yami no Mahou Shoujo
  • 14kkkrCKdddkd = SHOGYO MUJO
  • 479rrrrRRrrRRrRrrRRrR = ???
  • ex-261ddkdddDDDDAdkddk = ???
  • 407(kkkdkkkdkkkdkdkd)4dd = ???

Question 5: International Donder
Taiko no Tatsujin sure is going global recently, having got releases in four languages already and more to come as seen from deeper digs. Name seven languages used in Taiko no Tatsujin vocal songs.

Question 6: Find That Song, Episode 6
"Hey again! Since two years ago I got myself all the Taiko no Tatsujin games  and merch for the last ten years and played them all through, and I am proud to say I don't need your help finding songs every year now! ...except this song that I haven't heard myself before but my grandpa had quite a lot when he was in Japan, after that accident he had. This song's title has a different song's title in it, and its lyrics mentions two more song's title. What song is it anyway?"

Question 7: Speed Demon
Which song has the one single note that is overtaken by the most notes?

Question 8: Endscreen Enigma
Not many people care about results screen, so for this last question let's give it some spotlight! If you rank the various results screen jingles after each song (of the standard Performance Game mode) by the number of games it has appeared from most to least, which rank does Nintendo Switch Version's jingle land?

Rules for counting:
  • Only count the games that are officially titled as "Taiko no Tatsujin" or "Taiko Drum Master" etc. (in other words disregard The Idolm@ster Must Songs, Oira and so on)
  • Count different language versions (for 3DS2, Vita1, PS4-1, NS1 etc.) as one single game, but AC11/Asia, AC12/Asia and Wadaiko Master counts as separate games as their song lists are different enough
  • AC12.5 and 3rd-generation arcade firmware versions are also separately counted, but AC14 Plus is not.
