Spring:
Joseph Joestar (Jojo's) - This guy is too much fun to watch! I kinda feel bad for voting against him in the last best guy tounrey because I was slow to watch the Phantom Blood Arc. Because of him, I now vow to only vote if I know both characters that are facing each other!
Stephanie "Steph" Dola (No Game No Life) - I felt bad for this poor girl to be the butt of some of those jokes in NGNL. And I did feel bad for Yuki at times in his show, but not as much.

Summer:
Esdeath (Akamge ga Kill) - Best girl in the show! And I'm a Slaine supporter (I prefer Code Geass's Orange)
Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter) - Dude! Of all the characters to make me bawl like a baby, I did not think it would be this guy! I'd give Killua a hug, but getting zapped hurts a lot.
Sakura Chiyo (Gekkan Shoujo) - Artistic Polka-dot Tsukkimori
Hisoka (Hunter x Hunter) - Some characters don't even need development or a backstory to be awesome. Hisoka is one of them. I guess a lot of his appeal is how we really don't know anything about him...and Daisuke Namikawa's voice is alluring.

Huh.....

Because of my earlier vow, I realized that I should watch more anime so I can vote for more people.

Satsuki Kiryuin (Kill la Kill) - Contradiction is Truth (description of her personality)


Ha! That was a good one!

Also, Ballot_Bot is your junior! Unless you've secretly been a 12 year old this entire time!?!?!?!!?!

12? More like 9! jk, that would be awesome though. I just use senpai as a term of endearment/respect.

~Duel 2~


Winter
Match 1: Abstain

Match 2: Abstain

Match 3: Rikka Takanashi
Unpopular Opinion #2 - I liked Rikka in Chuuibyou Ren more than I did in the second half of season 1. She tried to play her role in furthering her and Yuuta's relationship to the best of her ability in her own Chuunibyou way; I can't really expect someone like her to make more logical leaps while still embracing her Chuunibyou (which she was encouraged by her friends to do). I guess she just seemed more like an actual Chuunibyou girl in a romantic relationship instead of (in my view) kind of randomly being more aware of things than even some non-Chuunibyou girls her age (i.e., how I see the second half of season 1). I know my view is biased because my standards for romance are incredibly weird (read: bad), but I like what I like, for better or for worse.

Match 4: Satone Shichimiya - Chuunibyou Internal War


Spring
Match 1: Nico Yazawa
One of the faces of μ's, she is a girl who is possibly more dedicated to being an idol and being involved with idols than any other member of the group. Idol culture is her entire life; this may seem silly to some, but think of it as a pastime or hobby, just to a somewhat greater extent (especially since she's a school idol, not a professional idol). She worked hard for some long years in hopes of becoming a school idol (becoming a pro isn't really an option), but struggled to get anywhere, even with an entire school club dedicated to the culture. Fortunately, getting involved with μ's allows her to finally take steps toward her goal - her dream - after years of not getting anywhere, and not a moment too soon seeing as she's a senior in high school (school idol status does not carry over into college). She can be seen as a cocky and rude girl who flaunts her superiority (she has been doing this longer than anyone) by some, but her attitude is actually something of a façade. I can't say too much for the sake of spoilers, but let's just say she's trapped herself in a situation where she has to keep up this façade most of the time for the sake of those who look up to her and aspire to be like her. Nico's becoming a part of μ's has improved her life in another way, though; specifically, it has allowed Nico to meet others her age who are able to recognize her façade (after a certain point) and accept her in spite of her almost constantly having it up (and later accept her even more when they learn what's beneath that façade). So just like the other girls from Love Live - the other members of μ's- Nico has her own story beyond just the status of being an idol, and I think she (and I, and a lot of other Love Live fans) would greatly appreciate it if more people were able to see this. I haven't seen Jojo's Bizarre Adventure in any of its incarnations, but very little of what I've heard about it sounds like something I personally would enjoy; sorry Jojo fans (well, not really since you're guaranteed to win this match anyway).

Match 2: Maki Nishikino
I've spoken at significant length about Maki in the past, so I will just say something brief before reposting something I wrote about her in the past. Maki is a music lover to the extent that she is unable to abandon playing the piano as her sole way of spending her free time; as such, her social interactions are very limited in number since starting high school. Becoming a part of μ's allows her to be involved with both music and others her age; this in turn allows for her to start (I do emphasize "start" here; people don't change that much in 3 months) opening up more and approaching the same level of sociability as the other members of μ's, who have had no such restrictions on their social lives. Now here is something (long) I wrote about Maki several months ago (it's really been that long) that goes into more detail; there may be some spoilers in it.

I liked Tanaka in the five episodes of Haikyuu!! I watched, but - Unpopular Opinion # 3- he never really struck me as special in any way; he was fun to watch, but "fun to watch" typically isn't enough to get me to vote or a character.

Match 3: Yuuki Hase - Exceptionally Human Guy

Match 4: Umi Sonoda
For some reason, I have trouble discussing Umi, so this will probably be brief. She starts out not wanting to be a part of the whole 'school idol' business; she thinks it's ridiculous and that it will accomplish nothing but getting her to embarrass herself. But as one of the less "girly girls" around, she decides to give it a shot in hopes of finding a better balance between how she is currently and a more feminine side of her that she doesn't show as often as she'd perhaps like. It should also be noted that Umi can be very shy and hesitant to get involved in major projects (such as a school idol group), but once she does get involved, she becomes invested in the project to the point of doing everything in her power to make sure it works out as well as it possibly can. She actually becomes akin to the coach of the group in that she organizes training sessions and critiques the group's practice sessions. On top of that, she writes lyrics for the group's songs (Maki composes the music). Yes, being a school idol is not as easy and perhaps "frilly," for lack of a better word, as it may sound; there's a lot of work involved in being a school idol, and Umi is one of the key players responsible for this work getting done and going smoothly. On a final note, becoming so invested in the group's activities actually allows Umi to start getting over her shyness and expressing herself more (as evidenced in the big snow scene in season 2, for those who have seen Love Live). If this seems like a recurring thing, that's because it is. Every member of μ's grows in a significant way by being involved with the group, and Umi is no exception, even if her growth is not as obvious as that of some of the other members. Akira? I think he's supposed to be a sort of rival type who has more humanity than you'd expect; that does sound kind of interesting to me, but I'm usually not fond of how sports anime portray their characters, and while there are a few exceptions to that, I'd have to like this Akira guy more than any other sports anime character I've ever seen for him to even come close to taking my vote away from Umi.

Summer
Match 1: Inaho Kaizuka - Keeps Emotions Restrained

Match 2: Sinon/Shino Asada
I was invested in Sinon from the moment I saw her trying to force herself to become stronger in the first GGO battle we see in SAO II. Learning about Shino Asada's backstory explained a lot and only increased my investment in her. From then on, I watched this girl continue to force herself to overcome her phobia through a form of exposure therapy, always waiting and hoping to see signs that her methods were paying off. Over time, I did get to see signs of change in this girl; Shino Asada was becoming tougher, and Sinon was becoming less closed off. This dynamic was (and still is) interesting and endearing to me, especially with how it wraps up in the end. I haven't seen much of Killua in action, but based on what I have seen and heard of him, I'm not convinced his character would mean much to me personally. Sorry, Killua fans (even though you're going to win this match anyway); I'll watch HxH eventually, I promise.

Match 3: Asuna Yuuki
I won't lie: in SAO season 1, I didn't care that much about Asuna. Yes, she was a strong female fighter, which is always nice to see, but she didn't do much to keep my attention; all I noticed was that she seemed to struggle to get involved with others. Then Mother's Rosario happened and made Asuna into a considerably deeper character, at least in my eyes. Mother's Rosario showed off Asuna's real life circumstances, which had only been hinted at before, as well as her doubts about her strength in the real world compared to the game world, and focused on her learning how to deal with them via Yuuki's guidance. Seeing things through her eyes and finally hearing her thoughts on the world(s) around her allowed me to finally connect with her and understand her, which allowed her development to impact me more than I would've thought possible considering this is SAO we're talking about. On top of all that, she serves as a great older sister figure to Yuuki and a good mother for Yui, at least in my eyes, and I always love seeing such depictions of familial relationships in anime.

Match 4: Touka Kirishima - Smart Yet Self-Loathing

Fall
Match 1: Ban - Rival and Partner

Match 2: Abstain

Match 3: Kousei Arima - Defeating the Drowning

Match 4: Abstain

Go watch Shingeki no Bahamut so you can vote for Favaro when he comes up and if Rita makes it through. It's Road to Eldorado levels of fun.

My Votes



Maki Nishikino (Love Live!) - she's the cool and beautiful song composer of the group. She has a nice figure, has a nice singing voice, she's rich, and she's a genius! The empress is really cute especially when she's on her dere dere moments but her tsun tsun moments are really cute too... what's not to like?
Umi Sonoda (Love Live!) - she's level headed, calm, and cool. She's a bishoujo, good at martial arts, and has the best singing voice in the group. Also she writes most of their lyrics!
Inaho Kaizuka (Aldnoah.Zero) - he's a calm and cool genius who curbstomps vastly superior enemy tech with his trainer. Plus he likes eggs. C'mon eggs are delicious!
Koyomi Araragi (Tsukimonogatari) - he's a pervert and has a big harem... and uhhh... he's a pervert and has a big harem! Really I'm sure Rita would join his harem too!!!

Those are my votes for this round!

I couldn't find one I liked. Also, I'm tired from writing all that out, so I don't really feel like looking for one now. It's a shame because it'd be a good way to promote Sins as well as Ban (and later Meliodas).

Also, don't forget to vote.
