Greetings! I, cay032692, hayate_sensei_853, Grauger, LoomyTheBrew and our friendly neighborhood Ballot_Bot welcome you to our 3rd Annual CR Picks Tournament! Last year we set out to crown the best anime character of 2015! We aimed high, and yet you guys blew our goals out of the water. Because of last years smashing success, there won't be too many changes, as we continue to strive for the perfect tournament. There are a few minor changes, so I suggest you read below and buckle up, this is going to be a wild ride. We hope that first and foremost you will have fun and enjoy your stay here!

It has been a long and arduous journey these past 6 weeks. Through the mountains of hype and valleys of salt, we have finally come to the end and the task of finding the best character of 2016 completed. While each and everyone of us came to this thread with our own idea of who the best character of 2016 was, through the the spirit of competition one character has triumphed over controversy and salt. The people have coalesced behind a single character out of the masses.

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 for that we thank you.

Any character who appeared in an anime TV Series with a voice actor


I call discrimination against shovels and radishes!


(However, not that I can think of any from shows I've watched this year, but theoretically couldn't there be a "real" character that's mute and thus doesn't really have a voice actor, or anime where reasonably significant characters are seen but not heard?)

For practical purposes though, I think that rule does do a good job of keeping completely frivolous nominations out. I trust that exceptions could be made in cases of truly legit characters that might miss out on a technicality.

Most silent characters I've seen have had a VA for grunts and such

Yeah, I thought of that. I'm kind of posing an extreme possibility for which I don't even have an example. See the edited version of my post where I acknowledge that and the reasonableness of this rule.

Same rules as last year from what I can tell. But I was partly joking. I understand if people don't want a repeat of the keyboard, dancing vegetable, and shovel from last year.

So, Pad-kun should be inanimate character of the year?



https://myanimelist.net/character/142426/Pad-kun

Sorry, that rule just begs for finding exceptions.

Anyway, looking forward to it.

I'm at least 99% certain that her ponytail is alive.
