So...anyone going to tell us whether or not our guesses were right? I don't mean to rush, but it has been a couple of days, and I'd appreciate at least another chance to guess before the riddle ends.

Oh yeah, it has been a few days. I just assumed we were all wrong since neither Nightwish or Kairin (or whoever wrote the riddle) replied. Hint, please!

Well NW is probably busy and Kairin only posts in the Riddle thread, so I was kind of hoping that the riddle author wasn't occupied as well and would reply to our guesses, because getting a definite "no" is a lot more clear than no replies... And I think it's only been 4-5 days, and the hint is posted after 7...

I think for now we should just assume we all got it wrong and post some more guesses.

Either right on the money or dreadfully wrong, my good man.

So explanations for answers are no longer required, you can just post links?

I always thought a reasoning was required for an answer. But looking at the past answers for riddles, there were no explanations then.

All of his answers seem random and as no explanation is given, I have no idea which of the three is the answer and how did he deduce the answer.

I kinda rocked up to this contest halfway through so I've just been picking up the rules from as example as best i can. If I've been doing something wrong, please do tell ^_^;;

As for the explanation/rationale behind my answer:

Spoiler:


Some of the answers before mine didn't have any explanations so i figured it wasn't necessarily required. If i do happen to be correct, i will elaborate on it however as seen above.

Because it's hard to explain every single answer you give, especially if they're wrong. Lot of unneeded work explaining what's not confirmed to be right.

I don't think he's just stabbing in the dark and getting f'n lucky, if that's what you mean. Is it okay for people to suggest some safety answers if they're not 110% sure, Hooves?

And god, I was close to answering the last one. At least I had the girl down...

Well there are times when you just go with an answer so I can't complain about that, but its not really 110% accuracy that I was looking for. I know something lead brocko to guess those answers, but it just sorta feels like throwing random answers to me.

Oh, I see. Now that I look at it again, it does kinda look like random answers.

But random answers are near impossible on such a large forum, no?

To be fair, they were pretty much stabs in the dark but at the same time they weren't completely baseless guesses either.

With that said though, this contest pretty much revolves around taking shots in the dark and hoping for the best lol
Like Komari said, if you're taking completely random shots in the dark in an area as large as this forum going off of purely nothing, then good luck and have fun trying to even get close to a hit. In the off-chance that someone does hit, then good job to them no? lol

Darn, I've never seen Air so I wouldn't even begin to guess that girl. Maybe I need to watch more famous animes. I thought it was initially about the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. ... Well, congratulations Brocko. Now we're down to the final five. I can sense that this is gonna get intense.

Oh don't congratulate me for working out this riddle was about Air or a specific girl. I dug up a whole list of potential answers ranging from threads in the Clannad and Kanon forums to shows that i've yet to see such as threads in the Spice and Wolf (yea i know shame on me for not watching this yet... ) and Tales of x forums. This Air one just happened to fit the most out of the possible answers i looked into so it got thrown out first
