Greetings! I, cay032692, hayate_sensei_853, LoomyTheBrew and our friendly neighborhood Ballot_Bot welcome you to our inaugural tournament!

This tournament is designed so that YOU, fellow CR forum goers, can crown the best anime character of 2014! To this effect we want to make this as simple, quick and easy as possible. No gimmicks, groups, powers or tricks. All your favorite character has to do to claim the crown is defeat 7 other would-be champions in single combat! This is for the best of the best, the rest need not apply. 32 of each season's finest and brightest will enter the field, but only one will leave victorious.

If you've spent any considerable time on the Anime forums you might be familiar with the current series of ‘Best Girl/Guy”. We want to try something a little different, a back to basics as it were. To do that we wanted to try three different things 1) Completely open nominations, any gender or species, it they appeared in a show between Jan 1 2014 and Dec 31 2014, they're fair game. 2) We want to limit off topic discussion and create a focused environment that revolves solely around votes and voting. And lastly 3) We want to make it as simple and easy to vote as possible, so that as many people as possible can come share their opinion on the best character of the year.

If this sounds right up your alley buckle up, and take a look at the rules with some hope and a little luck it should be a fun ride!

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much.

Tonight, more than 7 weeks after this thread forged ahead on a path determined to sow chaos, the task of finding the best character of 2014 has concluded.

It was possible because of you. It was possible because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over controversy and salt, the spirit that has lifted this thread from the depths of despair to the great heights of hope, the belief that while each of us will pursue our own individual best character, we are a CR family, and we rise or fall together as one forum and as one people.

Tonight, in this contest, you, my fellow thread goers, reminded us that while the road has been hard, while the journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for anime, the best is yet to come.

I want to thank everyone who participated in this competition. Whether you voted for the very first time or have been involved in competitions past, whether you campaigned with speech or song, whether you made a poster or gif, you made your voice heard and you made a difference.

- Tourney Admins



A eulogy delivered by Reverend LoomyTheBrew

While us admins worked hard to keep the prosperity of the competition in tact, it was not without its loses. In our quest to make the perfect tourney, we lost a great comrade and admin, Cay. Day and night, he did his best to protect and monitor the competition as best he could. He never once let anything get by him and made sure that the contest was a fun place for everyone. But as a wise man once said, you either die a hero or live long enough to become the villain. Luckily, Cay was the former and went down as a hero. Even until his last moments he never gave up; However, in the end he accepted his fate and passed on. Some say his spirit still lingered around the thread and helped those in need in the shadows. I like to think that one day we’ll see him again, but it’s hard to say for sure. Cay was a fellow admin of ours and his life deserves to be recognized by the many… Because he’s the admin Crunchyroll deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So the mods will hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our admin. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

Everyone who helped make this competition what it was...

* IS so confused on how voting works, but wants to nominate a very special character who holds a place in her heart*
I have a feeling my vote won't be much of a contribution, though, my dream of him winning the top title or at least a top 5 spot will be promptly stomped upon....

Excuse my confusion, but is there a separate thread for the vote casting, or do you put your vote / quote in this thread? I read the instructions repeatedly but I am very confused as to where you're supposed to place the votes ahhHHH

Question about Ballot_Bot:

Who/what is Ballot_Bot? Is it actually a bot or is it a user made alt account? Either way, I hope you all cleared this by CR mods since it is against site rules to use alt accounts.

I was contacted by Loreen about this.

It has already been approved by the mods.

We're already one step ahead of you.

We've got it all cleared up with lorreen and she actually has access to the account, along with us. All 5 of us keep track of it and use it.

Haha, so what is it and how does it work? Or are you not privy to that info?

Oh, so are you all able to log in at once then with a master password then? Curious how this actually works with multiple people able to access it.
