Manga series can have some wacky premises…and that’s part of their charm. This quiz tests whether you can separate the wow-these-actually-exist books from the hmm-why-don’t-these-exist-yet ones. (Vol. 1 of this quiz series can be accessed here.)

The real manga titles appear below the quiz.

1. Gantz 

2. Sailor Moon 

3. Fake, unfortunately

4. Kitaro 

5. Haganai: I Don’t Have Many Friends 

6. Satan’s Secretary 

7. Fake. This is actually the plot of the excellent sci-fi film Colossal.

8. Noragami: Stray God
