Hey guys! thx for bring this up. Nice Catch!

Sorry for the delay, I was out running

So as Cay has said and Sonic noted, the rule is accurate:

The tournament will be split into 4 seasonal conferences consisting of 32 characters each. Characters will belong to the season that their show began in. Notable Exceptions: Fall shows carrying over into Winter 2015 will be considered in the Fall conference. Shows with split cours will be considered in the season that the first cour ended.
Unfortunately, the List had not been updated to reflect this rule, and was simply the full list of shows.

Sorry for any confusion this may have caused. Log Horizon, Hitsugime no Chaika, Hamatora and WIXOSS have all been edited to reflect the above rule.

Our rational for such a decision, is that split cour are more similar to 2 cour show just with a break than legit 2nd seasons, and since we are counting two cour show in the first season it aired, we would do the same with split cour.

Thanks for clarification!

I just noticed that Mushi-shi is also both Spring-Fall

Almost done with my list. It's pretty hard to fit just eight characters from each season

Wait, so we have to choose 8 characters from each season? What if all of your favorites come from only one or two seasons? Would the votes be invalid?

You may choose up to 8 characters per season. If you'd like to nominate fewer characters, that's perfectly fine, even if it's only one or two. There's no quota you have to meet or anything like that.

Edit: And yes, the below response goes into more detail.

I believe this is the answer

32 is an awful lot, if you only vote for a couple of characters per season will it still count?


Yes it will, you are just MAXed at 8 per season for a total of 32 overall, but you are free to do as little as you want for each season
So you could just nominate 1 from each season for a total of 4, Or just nominate 1 character OVERALL, from the entire year, just specify which season.

I'd like to point out that choosing 8 per season is not as much as you think it is.

It's less than 0.5 characters per show.

32 characters per season will mean it is a deathmatch for the lesser known characters. Every vote counts in the lower realms, where the difference between having 6 votes and having 7 votes can be decisive.

Just something I saw in the How to Vote section.

1) Quote Ballot_Bot and post in this thread the list the girls you would like to advance in a single post.

Shouldn't this say list the characters instead of girls?

Yes, it should. That's a typo from the draft stages. Thanks for catching that.

No problem I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully this time around my top pick will make it through the first round

Two quick questions

1. How elaborate should be our written reason behind a character nomination?
2. Does it have to be in the same post or do we first post our nominations, then make a second post with our reasoning?

From the How to post section of the first post:


a) For nominations simply provide the name of the character and the show they are from.
b) After nominations, in addition to the name and show, you MUST provide a reason why you prefer that character.

(emphasis mine).

So, basically no reason at all is required for nominations.

Hi, and welcome to the tournament. We hope you enjoy your experience here.

1. You do not actually need to state reasons for the nomination round. Reasons will not be required until the next round, when the 1v1 matches begin. But when that time comes, your reasons will merely have to say something about the characters beyond surface-level things, such as how cute or tough-looking they are. The reasons can be brief, though; you probably won't need to write more than a sentence or two, if even that.

2. Yes, once reasons become required in the next round, your reason will be included in the same post as your vote. But that won't be until the next round. We decided it would be too much to ask voters to give reasons for up to 32 characters at once.

Thank you for the quick response you two!

For some odd reason I read ''after'' as in ''right after'', sorry about that.
