It's that time of the year again! Time to find out who among hundreds of characters will be crowned by all of you as the best character of 2017 in the 4th annual CR Picks. Yes, we know 2017 ended well over a month ago but better late than never, right? Unfortunately, some of our friends who usually host this tourney have very little time on their hands lately so I'll be taking the reins this year with the generous assistance of cay032692, hayate_sensei_853, and sonic720, who were kind enough to take time out of their busy schedules to help things run smoothly. And of course no tourney nowadays is complete without the friendly Ballot_Bot! Due to how successful the last few years have been (and definitely not because I'm too lazy to come up with something new), there are no changes to the tournament rules & format. Now that that's out of the way, we hope you all have fun!

It's finally time to crown another winner and close the curtains on another Best Character tournament. After a slightly delayed start, 6 weeks of voting, and a healthy dose of salt, we've reached the end of this contest and found the best character of 2017. Not everyone may agree on the winner, but I'm sure most of us can agree that there were many great characters to choose from. Regardless of the results, we hope you all had fun throughout this past month and a half.

We thank all of you who participated this year. There were many familiar faces and also some who were new to these kinds of tournaments. This wouldn't have been as exciting without everyone who decided to join in and cast their votes.

The salt is definitely gonna be piling on my head. I'm gonna be bathing in it like a witch's nightmare 'cuz all my favorite characters were in series that most people hated or overlooked like Urahara or Koi to Uso. But I'll try my best to boost some of my faves!

While you guys wait for nominations to start, now would be a good time to vote in Swaggercandy's Crunchyroll Forum 2017 Anime Awards if you haven't done so already. Only 2 days left to vote.

Also the official CR Awards reopened the voting for all categories so if you missed some you can go and vote now. It closes in 2 days as well.

He won't. He'll get hate/anti-voted out.

This can only end well.

 4) Off topic discussion is okay in small doses, but please keep it brief.


Honestly, this rule kind of bothers me, even if it's nothing new. It's because we had active discussions in threads like these that things like the tourney chatroom exist. You can argue that we no longer have the need for off-topic discussion here, seeing how there's now a specified place for that, but you know just as well as I do that we tend to scare people off over there (I blame jcal)

Doing things this way seems more inclusive, for sure, but is this really what we should be going for here? For me it's part of the quantity over quality route this tourney has gone down in the last few years and I can't say that I care for it. This is of course just personal preference, but I'd personally rather have a thread in which 60 people are actively having a discussion than one where 120 participate, but there's barely any discussion at all. Basically what I'm saying is: While I don't think that you should encourage off-topic discussion, I'm not sure that there should be a rule actively discouraging it either.
