Second Annual Character Tourney: Round One

« previous entry | next entry »

posted by: starlightstorm in dinosaur_zone

After thinking it over (and taking some good advice), I decided the best way to conduct the tourney is to post it here and advertise it on tenipuri -- that way, people who want to can just click a link and bop over here to vote. :D

We're drawing from a pool of 128 names (some of whom I have no idea who they are) and thus seven rounds like a real Grand Slam, with two rounds posted each week (Mondays and Thursdays; this week is a little early because I wanted to get a head start, and the first round always takes more work)~

The rules are simple. For every matchup, pick one. That's it. That's all. Use whatever criteria you want: they're prettier, they're more seme, they'd win at tennis, they're more generally fabulous and thus likely to win an all-out deathmatch ... whatever you want. ;D

We have a bonus question to kick things off, though, so please be sure to pick an option for question zero!



ZERO. How do you want to conduct this tourney this year?

Standard (each winner battles the winner of the match below it)
28(31.5%)
Mix-and-match (put all the winners for that round back into the hat, draw new matchups from that lot)

I think that was one of the hardest ones for me, too. ;;

I don't know who half of them are, either, if it's any consolation. When I ran out of names of people I knew, I went over to FET to get names of people I didn't. ^^;;

But, THE LONG-SUFFERING PARTNERS OF RAGE AND PUNS. And Hazue is just cute, but I love Kisa2, also. D:

It's also rikkai exbuchou.. XD;; Of all the mangacanon!people for people not to have the slightest clue about, he's totally the one.

I purposely voted against Ryoma, because it would be hilarous if he got eliminated in the first round xD;; not like it's possible xD;

It's certainly possible in a tournament like this, when it all comes down to fangirl love and not actual canon skill. XD maybe round two?

unfortunately, I see the 'voting against' thing really popular here, when it is an unknown or not loved charecter vs. well known one, all haters of that popular one will vote for the second xD; like my vote for Arai was against Echizen xD;

All these people I don't know who they are, and there are still plenty of matchups I actually had to chooose between. This poll doesn't look like it's going to go my way... ^^;

Anything's possible. XD;
Even an unknown making it to the finals. It's not likely, of course, but it all depends on how the names come out of the bowl ~

It always makes me sad when two people I've never heard of are against eachother and then two people I LOVE are lol.

Also, it's this poll that makes me realize I have NO IDEA who half the cast is. at least it doesn't just seem to be me... xDDD

I know, right? Wouldn't it be easier if it was all the "who?" people against all the people that we all know?

But then, that would take all the fun out of it~

There were some times I'd pull out two names and really really want to put them back and start over, but that wouldn't be fair. It just wouldn't.

Oh, Yanagi vs. Sanada was terrible :( I really hope Yanagi makes a comeback but somehow I don't think that's going to happen.

Sad day.

@_@ Mizuki vs. Oshitari. That ripped my little heart out. I'm sorry Oshitari. Mizuki's in my top five, that's the only reason. I'm SORRY!!! Not like you are going to loose, anyway.

And Hiroshi vs. Hiroshi. XD That amused me.

Sana vs. Renji - another tough one, really.

I love both of them, too. ;; Usually you don't get to really hard decisions like that til at least the third round, but it's all luck of the draw!

... yeah. XD; Just missing Yagyuu to complete the set.

Always tough when you've got folks on the same team going up against each other.
