Character Tournament (Winner Kamina)

Postby darksideoftheanime » Thu Jan 22, 2009 12:40 am

Due to the forum going and me not saving the votes I have to restart the voting again. But before I do that, I want to clear up something about the voting. The original rules I had set up said that voters had to vote for four characters but some decided to vote for less then four characters due to lack of knowledge of characters. So I want to know which way of voting would be best? Should I do a voting system based on how much someone likes a character over another character?

I think the versus version is better. It may be more tedious, but giving reasons has to help in some way.

I really don't like the versus version of this many characters because you have to vote for 32 match-ups to make that go quickly. I could cut it down to sixteen match-ups but it would take another four weeks to finish the first round. And even then, it still doesn't change the fact that people will still not want to vote for match-ups that they don't know the characters.

Since this is a popularity contest I don't think it entirely makes a difference if someone votes for four or one, it might actually make things more interesting. Especially since arguments can be made and votes can be changed within the voting period.

Well it's like I didn't watch Mononoke but I did watch Haruhi and I have characters I really love from that show so I'm not going to want to vote for the Mononoke character because they might have to go up against a character I really like with the chance that my character would lose. So yeah I guess it would make it more interesting if we didn't have to vote for all 4. You know the weakest link gets eliminated all.

Group A: I'm padding this group with Albedo. If he makes it to the next round don't count on me voting for him again.

Kaworu Nagisa (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Kyon (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
Revy (Black Lagoon)
Albedo (Xenosaga the animation)


Group B: Funny...my votes in this group are all for male characters.

Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Kusuriuri/Medicine Seller (Mononoke)
Ojisan (Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou)
Porco Rosso (Porco Rosso)


Group C: While this group I've picked all female characters.

Nausicaa (Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind)
Triela (Gunslinger Girl)
Akari Mizunashi (Aria the Animation)
Miyako Komagusu (Ghost Hound)

Group D: Not familiar with the remaining characters in this group. Thus only three votes cast.

Quick little note, it is preferred if people give explanations for the choices. However, given the fact that most of us already posted our votes for this particular round we'll make a little exception this round of voting heh.

Group A:

Ban (GetBackers)---You all saw that coming
Revy (Black Lagoon)---Short shorts and big guns ftw
Shikamaru (Naruto)---Who says you can't be lazy and not succeed in life lol?
Sei Satou (Maria-sama ga Miteru)---Went with the cuteness factor here

Group B:
Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)---A suit of armor who can do martial arts...wins it for me
Teresa (Claymore)---Bad ass babe with a sword...almost as pro as one with short shorts and a gun
Kusuriuri/Medicine Seller (Mononoke)--- Nostalgia won this one
Kaname Kuran (Vampire Knight)--- Given the bishie's a bit of support

Group C:
Ginji (GetBackers)---Well you can't have one without the other right?
Eikichi Onizuka (Great Teacher Onizuka)---The most badass teacher ever!
Triela (Gunslinger Girl)---I always liked her the most of the girls because of how she plays the big sister role to them all.
Akari Mizunashi (Aria the Animation)--- This show is too pretty and such a breath of air to not get some support.

Group D:
Motoko Kusanagi (Ghost in a Shell)---Another badass babe...with more short outfits and big guns. :mrgreen:
Lavie Head (Last Exile)--- This show was visually stunning & Lavie was one of the best characters in it.
Rock Lee (Naruto) Bruce....errr Rock Lee ftw. :lol:
Galatea (Claymore)---Well I can't vote for one and not the other heh.

Group A
Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass) - "I, Lelouch vi Britannia, command you: VOTE FOR ME!" *mindlessly votes for Lelouch.*
Shikamaru Nara (Naruto) - I can relate to his lazy nature kinda like the rest of the people that voted for him so far. ;)
Kaworu Nagisa (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Kyon (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)

Group B
Alphonse Elric (Full Metal Alchemist) - He has a suit of armor for a body. Now that's badass!
Haruhi Suzumiya (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) - It's her show. How can you not vote for her?

Group C
Eikichi Onizuka (Great Teacher Onizuka) - Teaching is a thankless job so it would be nice to show this one some appreciation.
Triela (Gunslinger Girl)
Nausicaa (Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind)
Riza Hawkeye (Full Metal Alchemist)

Group D
Rock Lee (Naruto) - I see a lot of myself in him since he's apparently the underdog of the show and I can't help but show my support to someone like that. But like myself, while he has some redeeming qualities and has a good bit riding for him, he is the underdog for a reason.
