    c) 元気なのに死人のような呼ばれ方をする学生はだあれ?(げんきなのにしにんのようなよばれかたをするがくせいはだあれ?)


    4. General Knowledge: (Bonus Question)

    In the manga, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, 8 seals were set up to protect Kyoto from yokai/demons. The names of the following places in manga are based on the actual historic sites in Kyoto. Can you guess what they are?

    a) 鹿金寺(ろくきんじ)

    Re: Latest Quiz (#22)

    You got it. When you actually answer the riddle, just use 2 kanji instead of 3.
    You could also polish up your answer by rephrasing it in Katakana.

    四谷怪談(Yotsuya kaidan), the ghost story of Oiwa (お岩さん/Oiwa-san), is very famous. People often associate the phrase with her (Oiwa).
