# Themed Problem Challenge! Week II

Before I begin, let me first congratulate last week's winner, Yan Yau Cheng with his problem It's Coronation Day!! Everybody give him your congrats! :D

Now, this week's theme is something I know you guys will all love. This week's challenge is manga/anime! This can includes books, TV shows, etc. Check out last week's note for more rules. Pretty much, just write a cool problem with the theme of manga/anime and post it! Provide a link in the comments, and don't forget to check out other's problems too. Let's try to get some more reshares this time around! Like and reshare! Good luck. :D

NOTE: Try to add pictures. It makes the problem awesome, and easier to connect for people who've never watched/read anime/manga in their life (such as myself).

Haha, knew you would. Fantastic!

@Finn Hulse Has the week elapsed? Have you decided a winner?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I'm still reviewing. I want to make sure everything's good. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

OK.

@Finn Hulse, Am I late to the party? I wrote an Attack on Titan themed problem about the Riemann zeta function.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I don't know how the H E double hockey sticks to solve that.......calculus....turds.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Haha. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Totally not bro! Great problem though. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Awesome problem. Took me some time to get the answer.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Glad you like it! Would you mind writing a solution?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

It isn't exactly neat though. I bet there's an easier solution.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Does it involve reordering the numbers and getting a new series? That's my solution.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Yes, I think.

Dude, are you ready to boss out FTW!? Sharky and I are waiting.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

HAHAHAHAHA I need to solve it first silly! Give me time! I'm playing an FTW! match with @Sharky Kesa wanna join? Password's 123. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

@Finn Hulse @Sharky Kesa Good game! How do you do the sum question though? It doesn't seem possible.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Calculator. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Sure. Wait 10 minutes, I will just finish lunch.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Haha, it's like midnight for me. :O

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I was responding to Sharky, but if you want to write a solution as well, That'd be great!

Regarding FTW, I have to go grab a snack (Friday is anime night after midnight) but I'll be back in about 15 minutes.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Oh, ok. Well, there's not much. You make an AoPS account, which should be pretty simple, and then you can just click on FTW!. You can even play as a guest, just keep in mind that the password is 123. See you there! :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Awesome! I might have to go to bed soon though. :D

Great game.

I love that book as well as John Green in general. Have you read "An Abundance of Katherines"?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I haven't heard of those books even though I represented my state in reading. Kids Lit Quiz. We came second to Canberra Grammar. If we had won, we would have gone international.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Holy moly. There are states in Australia? :O

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Yes. 6 states and 2 territories, Namely New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Australian Capital Territory. I live in New South Wales.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Okay

Here is my problem on Pokémon.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I am sure everyone will kill me for asking this, but is Pokémon considered as manga?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Well, if there are Pokémon comics, it is manga, but since I have only watched it on TV, it is considered as anime. Check out my problem on Pokémon.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

is there any one who know about the proof of Eulers form of complex numbers ?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Just asking, is this to do with the thread's topic of discussion?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Yeah...

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Here is my problem Finn: Pokemons to the rescue.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I barely know manga/ anime but from what little I know, I made this.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

@Sharky Kesa nice problem I am going to try it, working on my question

- 3 years, 8 months ago

OK

- 3 years, 8 months ago

congrats dear

- 3 years, 8 months ago

@Trevor B., @Vishnuram Leonardodavinci, and all others who love manga/anime, come get some of this! :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Attack on Titan, let's do this! And maybe Free! (which I watched by accident) or Fullmetal Alchemist (4 episodes in) if I can think of something. I'll work on this tomorrow.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Sweet! Attack on Titan was pretty messed up. And free was pretty interesting...I guess. Hard to come up with a swimming anime.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Note: $$\textit{by accident}.$$ Free! was ok, but Attack on Titan is my favorite out of the three I've watched/watching.

One thing I liked about Free! is that it didn't have a character named Rose. Homestuck, Doctor Who, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Attack on Titan (the wall) all have characters named Rose in them!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

You a Doctor Who fan? I certainly am. Rose Tyler is stuck in a parallel universe.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Somewhat. It's been a really long time since I've watched it, unfortunately.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

So you haven't watched the 11th Doctor yet, Matt Smith?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I don't think so. I got into it a couple years ago when my science teacher played episodes of it in his room before school started, but then I lost interest over that summer, but I want to get into it again. Most of what I know comes from my friends, who really like Doctor Who.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Lol!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Yeah. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Wait bro you need to reshare this! I can't wait to see what you come up with. You should try to blend some Homestuck with something else. Like, mix up some totally different characters.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

My Homestuck set will be released on June 12, the 4th anniversary of Hivebent, which is pretty much where all people start liking Homestuck (If you're not paying attention, the first four acts can get pretty boring).

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Woah. Okay. Dude that is seriously nerdy. :O

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Hey, numerology is extremely important in Homestuck. 4/13, 6/12, 10/25, and 11/11 are all important dates in it. It's not that nerdy; I'm just honoring the date.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Fine, fine. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

YES! GO KICK BUTT TREVOR! :D :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

How bout trying something with Naruto. That anime is one of my main super anime with over 100 episodes: fairy tail, dragon ball, , Reborn.....probably about 40 different others

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Whoops One piece duh. I'm on about 250. There are soooo many and it's still going on.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

:O

- 3 years, 8 months ago

All I can say dude is that I cannot wait to see what interesting problem you're going to cook up. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Just posted it....I kinda made it unscrambling a bunch of equations. It's called "Naruto!!!!"
