An anime about quizzes? Have we ever seen anything like this before? Nothing comes to mind!

It's definitely a unique concept, but judging from the synopsis and PVs, this is going to be a lot like a character-centric sports anime. It kind of reminds me of Chihayafuru and 3-gatsu no Lion.

No way, this looks way more upbeat than those two! With the new team forming and coming together, this gives off more of a Haikyuu!! or Yowamushi Pedal vibe, but with female characters added in.

So it will kind of be a mix of those and puzzle anime like Phi Brain? Sounds interesting to me!

Synopsis

Soon after entering into into high school, First year student Shiki Koshiyama was invited to join the Quiz Research Club by an extremely suspicious upperclassmen, who is actually also the president of the club! Bringing along Mari, a classmate, Shiki is trying to figure out what the dazzling world of the Quiz Club is!

Three Episode Impression

Nana Maru San Batsu, otherwise known in cringey English as Fastest Finger First, is a club anime based around the competitive sport (?!) of buzzer trivia. The MC, Shiki, finds himself drawn to this club and he gets a thrill out of hitting that buzzer first! Well, Nana Maru San Batsu has the potential to be more like a shounen anime like Bakuman, but falls short and is more reminiscent of Chihayafuru, a josei anime. Nana Maru San Batsu has some entertainment value and the female lead, Mari, is quite interesting in her own right. There seems to be something in Mari’s closet that we are supposed to want to find out. For now, this anime is an OK version of Chihayafuru, but we suppose only time can tell.

Characters & Voice Actors List

Shiki Koshiyama

Voice Actor: Shun Horie


A first-year student at Bunzou High. Shiki is reserved and mature. A bookworm, his knowledge knows no bounds. He encounters Mari Fukami and Gakuto Sasajima and slowly descends into the world of competitive quizzes. The genres he specializes in are literature, history, etc.

Mari Fukami

Voice Actor: Umika Kawashima


A first-year student at Bunzou High. Mari is Shiki’s classmate and is experienced at competitive quizzes. She excels at rapidly answering standard questions often referred to as ‘betamon’. In contrast to how she looks, when it’s a quiz, she becomes sort of a quiz fanatic, unable to see anything else around her.

Gakuto Sasajima

Voice Actor: Kaito Takuya Satou


A second-year student at Bunzou High, Gakuto is also the head of the Quiz Research Club. He is a bit of an oddball who transferred in from the extremely famous Kaijou Academy, but his true powers are of a super high school student. At times friendly, and others strict, he guides Shiki and everyone.

Chisato Mikuriya

Voice Actor: Kaito Ishikawa


A first-year student at Miyaura High which is in the neighboring town to Bunzou High. Immature and unsociable, he boasts of his skills as a quiz player much unlike a new student. However, he does recognize that newbie Shiki is better than he is. He excels at all forms of science-related questions.
