Don't worry if you're unfamiliar with the series, the purpose of the game is not to guess what actually happened there! Same if you are familiar with the context - pretend that you aren't and make up something on your own!

Source of screencaps will more often than not be Anime Screenshots Without Context

For answering, you'll get 5 new release cards. Every answer is correct and feel free to comment on other people's answers! This round is open till Sunday, March 12th! CLOSED NOW!
