[Topic] Nana Maru San Batsu – You Want to go to NY? Why?

Newly series anime Nana Maru San Batsu has been aired from July 2017!

This anime brings you to the quiz tournament.

But at first, you’ve found that the heroine (Mari Fukami)’s voice is awkward.


Her voice actress is originally an idol, Umika Kawashima.

Voice-acting isn’t same as live-acting.

And she has acted in a live-action film “My Unkind Senpai” directed by Yutaka Yamamoto(Haruhi,Wake up Girls) .

She hasn’t yet adapted in voice acting.

Good otaku must wait, you see?


Ok, we return to the anime episode 01.


The main character, Shiki Koshiyama, has seen Gakuto Sasajima.

Suddenly he shouted “Do you want to go to New York?” on the stage.

Why must we go to New York?


It’s a parody of a television program in Japan.

“Trans America Ultra Quiz” had been aired from 1971 to 1992.

Ah, who knows it?


The Ultra Quiz was the biggest program in Japan’s TV.

In those days, Japanese people had been attracted by the USA.

We had wanted to catch up the most developed country.

And New York is the symbol of the USA.

*We respect the USA also today. Yes, of course.


The Ultra Quiz invited audiences to participate.

This competition had been started in Tokyo.

The winners were able to go to the airport.

And they arrived to the West coast of the USA.

They continued to compete each other to go to the next east city.

After a month, only two persons arrived to New York to play the final game.

That’s why, the MC shouts “do you want to go to NY?”

Nana Maru San Batsu shows you the quiz competion among many characters.

But it’s based of Japanese culture, so this article helps you to well understand.

“Nana Maru San Batsu” means “7〇3×”, it’s complicated!

[Japanese language] What are 〇 and × ?

As watching this anime, you make an answer in front of your monitor!

Good luck!
