Hello everyone, thank you for taking your time to look at this thread. If any of you do not come by the anime section often, then you wouldn't know that we hold annual tourneys where we all vote for best characters, animes, etc.

It's a lot of fun and I would encourage you all to come and join with us! We encourage all participation and would love for some of you to come and vote.

The tourneys have been quite popular since 2013 and they're still going strong. These tourneys last several weeks. There's usually nominations, group stages, 1v1s, and then finally the semi-finals/finals. What makes these tourneys different than what you'd usually see, is that they require you to give a reason as to why you're voting for a particular character/anime. In the nominations, it doesn't require a reason, but later on it does. It creates a different type of dynamic since you actually have to give a reason (or reasons) as to why you're voting the character you are voting for you. Plus, the tourneys encourage campaigning which you do in the tourney thread itself and designated show discussion threads.

Plus, there's a lot of discussion, debates, and other fun happenings that go down in the thread. Some more fun than others . I encourage any of you guys in the Chit Chat section to come check it out. The link below is to the current tourney and make sure to read the rules before posting. The rules are very simple and you can find them in the second post of the thread:

I will be posting in the second post of this thread when a new round starts so chit chat people can know who's up for voting.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me. Anyways, I hope to see some of you in the the tourney and participate!

PS: We send out a reminder every morning to notify people about the new round, if you would like to get put on this reminder list, let me know.

One for All, All for One: Guys Match 3








Dio Brando
German Luis


- Characters in this round will face off against each other in 1v1 match ups. The character that gets the most votes moves on to the next round of 1v1s.

- Voters must choose one character to vote for.

- Voters must state the reason why they are voting for them. It cannot be simple reasons like "S/he's mai waifu/husbando", "S/he has a great attitude" or "S/he was the only good thing about the show". Admins reserve the right to tell voters if their vote is insufficient and needs further elaboration.

OPTIONAL VOTING THEMES:

- As an alternative to simply stating a reason, voters can also describe how their choice's strengths would help them survive in an apocalyptic scenario.

OR

- Voters can write a poem/story/song etc.

Example Votes:


This is my Vote

I'm voting for Yuuji because his struggles in life really resonated with me and made me sympathetic to him.



This is my Vote

Dio would help me survive an apocalypse by turning me into a vampire to raise my strength and speed. Downside, I'd be under his complete control.


- In the case of a tie, the timer will be extended 2 HOURS and all voters may be allowed to vote again.. In the case of a further tie, the lower seed is eliminated.

- Remember to quote Ballot_Bot to have your vote counted.

- Check the first post for the 1v1 brackets to see upcoming matches.
