Here at FUNimation we LOVE Ping Pong. We even made a video about how much we love Ping Pong, and how epic we think the sport is. Check it out below.

 

 

Not only do we love Ping Pong the sport, but we also love Ping Pong: the Animation! Everything from the unique style to the phenomenal character development and the exciting matches. But enough about why we love it, we want to know why YOU love the series!

A Certain Scientific Railgun S – Accelerator’s Whisper Caption Contest

In A Certain Scientific Railgun S, Accelerator is the overpowered and deadly antagonist that our heroine Misaka tries to stop from killing her tens of thousands of clones, all created from a dark scientific experiment. His ridiculously overpowered abilities (featured in our previous scientific writeup, A Certain Scientific Analysis S) and sinister cackle are so iconic that they’ve even spawned an internet meme—Accelerator’s Whisper, an image macro based on his initial introduction.

 

In honor of the release of Railgun S Part 2, we’re running a caption contest for this famous scene! One grand prize winner and four runners up will receive a prize pack of Railgun merchandise!

 

Here are shots of the scene, with the original dialogue:

 

railgun accelerator

 

That’s a pretty creepy and tense scene! But we like to think that the gravity also kind of lends itself to some great parodies. Here are some we loved from around the Internet:

Come up with your own silly caption! You can enter by replying to this blog post, or by responding on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #RailgunSContest. If you want to make your own, click here for a clean version of the image.

 

Entries must be submitted by August 3rd, and winners will be announced August 4th. No image editing is required. We’ll share our favorites! Please note that by submitting an entry, you give us permission to share it on our social media channels. Click here for complete rules.
