CR Picks: Best Character 2014

Posted 1/2/15 , edited 1/3/15
Either way I'm voting for Kaneki Ken, he's the best character of 2014 imo, no matter how rushed the TG anime was.

Quick question:

For the "explain why you nominated/voted this character" part, are the reasons needed to be given exclusively related to what that character did within the anime in 2014?

Like, hypothetically speaking (meaning I am not spoiling, don't get any pantsu in a pretzel, guys..), let's say Ayato Kirishima, after impressive character development, dies protecting Touka Kirishima from Tokyo Ghoul in the manga, but that incident never happened in the anime yet. Will I be limited only to the actions Ayato has done in the anime, which was nothing more than beat down his own sister and inadvertently led Kaneki Ken to gruesome torture?

I entirely understand if we are limited to how far the anime has shown the actions of a character, given the fact this is about 2014, not Ayato's hypothetical actions that would only later be seen in 2015. Just curious, hope this wasn't confusing as ****.


Firstly, thanks for your interest in our tournament, hope you'll stick around.

Second, I'll have to discuss this with my fellow admins, but my initial answer would be to try to at least include something from the anime in your reason. I'll get back to you when we reach a consensus

Edit: also the reason wouldn't be required until the tournament proper has begun, so Ayako would first have to advance to the preliminaries

I'm going to second that part of your reason, should Ayato make it the point of requiring a reason as part of a vote, should involve the anime in some way. For example, if the anime gave you a bad first impression of the character, but the manga showed that there was more to him and actually made you like him more than if you had not had that bad first impression, I would probably count that as an acceptable reason. If your reason were something like "His sacrifice in the manga was awesome," I probably would not count that. But that's just me.

And as remassie said, welcome to the tournament. We hope you enjoy your time here.

I like this. If it is going to be a tournament thread then it needs to be a tournament thread and not a chatting-about-whatever-thread. I will be participating as long as it stays on-topic.



Do you have a problem with this thread?

Also, Ballot-Bot is adorable.

So here's the official consensus from my fellow admins. Your reason may include elements from the manga, but at least some of it HAS to be from the anime. If any part of your reasoning is from the source material, please refrain from using spoilers. The Rules will be updated accordingly, to make this more clear.

THIS is indeed what I mean, and I can agree on your standards here (the whole "what he/she did later in the manga made me appreciate how he/she was portrayed in the anime this year" reasoning).

Thanks, I'm still trying to completely acustom to a few new rules in this type of tournament, but I'm certain once it starts I'll pick up the entire concept~

Okay, I understand. I'm fine with whatever answer, but I'll be certain to include anime scenes, or at least take into consideration the perspective of an anime-only fan regarding these kinds of situations.

And thanks for the warm welcome. I honestly love these kinds of forum tournaments, so I'm certain I'll stick to the end with this.

Ahhhh I understand, thank you for the clarification.

Welcome to our tournament! We are definitely going to try our hardest to keep it on topic, if you have any concerns regarding off-topic discussion in the future, be sure to let an admin know and we'll try to work it out.

And I'll be sure to pass along the message, Ballot-chan is probably asleep at this moment

Or is your smh-ness in regards to the tourney itself? Because's I've seen and participated in many of these (not exactly like this but very similar in concept) kinds of tournaments and they're all successful to the end and have yet to see any that crumbled to obscurity..

Yeah, No. This is reply stops here.

Also if the rest could hold off chatting in the thread both on and off-topic, until it goes fully Live, would like to get the thread off page 1 if it doesn't need to be be up yet. But feel to ask any questions regarding the voting process and so forth.
