CR Picks: Best Character 2014

Oh sorry I missed this post.

I suppose in this instance Chiyo-chan is being more of an archetype character, very typical of these shows and especially seen with a lot of anime girls who get nervous around the guy they like. Mikorin on the other hand has some sort of confidence crisis going on and has severe anxiety.

I wouldn't sayo Chiyo-chan is flustered either. She generally is able to keep her shit together, she just misses certain opportunities when push comes to shove.

Mikorin is a very interesting character to me. It's interesting to see them explore this kind of character when most shows won't touch these sorts of issues seriously (hopefully that's not an oxymoron, given that this show is ostensibly a comedy. In a show that is almost entirely focused on representing three different types/forms of one-sided relationships, Mikorin's battle with himself and his duality is one of the things that stand out from the show.

Anyway, in summary, Chiyo is the hnnnng, "oh she's so sweet", character. Mikorin is the "Hmmmm, that's interesting" character.

Ahh...okay, fair enough, I get that.

Wow if the show had as much depth as your post, I might consider voting for them...unfortunately...the show doesn't.

Gin had 265 TV Episodes, 3 OVAs, and 57 volumes of manga, plus another TV series to develop. Plus 5 light novels.

Kenshin had 28 manga volumes and 95 TV Episodes, plus several OVA series and an animated movie, and a couple live-action movies (I think?).

Yato has 12 manga volumes (plus 1 special), 12 episodes, and 2 OVAs.

Not exactly a fair comparison.

EDIT:

Those two were also the main focus of their respective series. Yato is hardly that in his anime. It's almost more of a focus of a human (Hiyori) adjusting to his world, not Yato adjusting to ours.



Well, it doesn't seem like this series is going to be as long as either of those two actually. I'm caught up on the manga and I don't really like the direction they decided to take his character in. For me....it kind of is a missed potential.

However, the manga is pretty freaking awesome though.

Also...I doubt Noragami is getting a second season anytime soon.

I was just pointing out that RuroKen and Gintama had much more time to develop their character compared to Noragami. I haven't read/seen enough Noragami or Gintama to know how accurate your comparisons are, in my view.

If all of these contests taught me something it's that people perceive shows different ways or the ways they choose to see them.

I’m here to collect votes, as you might've already guessed. As the rules say, if I don’t get a notification when you vote, I won't ever be able to notice you, ♥︎senpai♥︎! And it If don't notice it can't be counted.This is mandatory. The admins are super super busy, so let me handle it.

I look forward to ♥︎counting all your votes♥︎!


Voting for the following:

Satsuki (Kill la Kill) - Her calm mind and cool figure gives her a tactical edge on her opponents whether in anime or in a contest. She calms herself by drinking tea.

Archer (Fate/Stay Night) - He also has a calm mind, but a cold figure. This gives him a tactical edge over his opponent in this contest. He looks at his surroundings and assess the situation.

YATO (Yona of the Dawn) - She is the cutest and I love her hair. Also- I loveee Yona of the dawn.

YONA (Noragami) - Yato is adorable in every way. I love how he can be cute one second but a total badass the next.


You got your reasons and characters mixed up.

Also, the admins might ask for more reasoning for your votes to count.Or, you can do this:


Instead of providing a reason, If you could hang out with or go on a date with the chosen character, where would you go and what would you do?

satsuki just shoves her ideals upon the rest of the world and desires to shape it in her vision

Not really?

Rest of the world? Actually, just to her own private army, she was using it to save the world and had zero interest in conquering it

But w/e, I forgive you for skimming it.

Wow. That sure sounds a lot like this guy, doesn't it?

No. He has fans and stalkers, he has a home, he owns several of the same outfit, not the same thing (and he goes regularly clothes shopping because his clothes get ruined), he cares about his district (Kabukichō, and everyone in it) and regularly says so.

Also, there is not a single hair of generic in his body.

Yato Fans Where'ya at??


Yato is falling further and further behind, amend the situation and vote for him today!

It doesn't matter that he's won in the past, that just means he all the better suited to take his rightful place in the Winter Final.

He's a badass that can cleanse anything with one strike.

He endures pain for his friends and doesn't stop believing in them even when they treat him with suspicion.

Here's the Yato vote you asked for. Hopefully I can start a cascade like last time. Archer is on his own for now....

I Vote Yato. Because he's awesome to hang out with.

He would take me to the most expensive restaurant in town. When the waiter brings the check he dumps 10 kilos of 5 yen coins on the table just for kicks. The waiter watches in horror as the table breaks under the weight. Yato, myself and everyone I know is banned from the restaurant for life. Only to be invited back when Yato saves the owners from a phantom ( the waiter still gives us dirty looks).

The week after, Nora kills me....

It's a pity. I was about to surprise Yato with an awesome shrine complete with laZers(gotta have the lazers). Yato assumes I have forgotten him like everyone else and becomes the damaged character we all know and love. Shortly after Yato meets Hiyori the events of the anime take place.

Satsuki Kiyurin(Kill La Kill) She's a noble, strong and charismatic leader. She not only has faith in her comrades but her plans are full proof. She's also a person who loves her family and will through great struggles to keep them safe.
