I vote for Ballot_bot! She came at the end of the year and overtook everyone who came before, just like the Fall season!

Apologies if this vote screws with your counting, Ballot_Bot. But other convinced me to show you some appreciation.

Abstaining from the others!

♥︎all your votes♥︎!

I can hardly believe we've already reached the end of the Conference Finals. Well, time to wrap up this round. My Fall Conference Final vote goes to Shinichi Izumi.

I've paid attention to the arguments against Shinichi, and I agree with them to an extent. I do not feel that all of Shinichi's character development should be credited to his character (I would say some of it is the show), but I do feel that at least a decent portion of it should be. He has his life thrown around until it's hardly even recognizable anymore as he struggles to retain (or perhaps reclaim) his humanity and fights against the Parasites. I have to give him credit for trying to work with Migi to resolve things rather than leaving it in others' hands; I don't think his way of handling the situation is ideal, but this is part of what makes him an interesting character in my eyes. His less-than-ideal approach could be considered human; perhaps needless to say, this ties into one of Parasyte's main themes concerning humanity. Shinichi's struggle interests me and keeps me engaged with the show more often than not.

Archer is a character I find mildly interesting at this point. There is a great deal of suspense surrounding him since we learn little of him in the 2014 anime; as others have said, he's jaded and he seems to hate idealism in some form. I would say that is interactions with Rin and Shirou can be interesting as they get him to reveal a few things about himself. That's enough for me to vote for him over some other characters in this tournament; but Shinichi is not one of those characters. As for other bits of praise Archer has received from others, I simply don't share the same sentiment on those matters. Yes, Archer excels in battle, but his battle prowess doesn't really leave that much of an impression on me; perhaps, just as Archer is jaded when it comes to ideals, I am jaded when it comes to elaborate and well-animated action sequences. His personality fits to an extent, but I'm not sure I see a reason for him to be . . . suave, for lack of a better term; I'm sure many feel that he does not need a reason to be this way, but personally I'm really only interested in how a character's personality traits tie in to other aspects of the character, hence why I haven't mentioned personality much in my previous votes. I don't really see Archer as having much presence, either; in my eyes, he shows up and does something kind of cool when he needs to, but that's about it from what I could see. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just that it doesn't earn him any additional points in my book. What else? His appearance? Contrary to what some may think based on some of my previous votes, I actually don't value a character's appearance under most circumstances, and Archer is no exception. So yeah; I have nothing against Archer, but I prefer Shinichi in this matchup.

But . . .

I activate the super Hax powers granted this match to vote for someone else, namely . . .

Ballot_Bot! Fall is a season in which the weather starts becoming colder and colder until you need to start buying firewood (or more likely an electric heater or two in this day and age) to keep you warm . . . unless you have someone who can warm you up just by being there, someone like Ballot_Bot. With her smile, her energy, and her seemingly unshakeable positive attitude and presence in the midst of counting so many votes, she's sure to warm the hearts of anyone who's feeling the autumn cold.

If only one vote can count now, I'm making Ballot_Bot my official vote.

Did Archer seriously get out voted by Ballot_Bot?

It depends on if the people who voted for Ballot_Bot and another character count for both I suppose.

And thus, I get the Final Four I wanted out of the 8 remaining characters. Satsuki, Ginko, Chiyo, and Shinichi. Aw yeah. Now comes the hard part.....Chiyo is the only easy elimination for me. I like the other 3 too much.
