    I got it. That's 物好き(ものずき).

    物好き describes people who like to do weird/unnecessary/unusual things just from curiosity and whim. In this anime, the captain gives a test for Arare in spite that she is so small and looks weak to join the team.

    btw, I watched Arare-chan as a child:)) Thanks for the link!


    You mean ものしり(物知り) ? もののり is new to me.

    ものしり is a person who widely knows information or knowledge of many things.
    To become a person called ものしり, they don't necessarily need to be better educated or a specialist. It's just that they know many things, including trivia.
