Last year - back when these forums were still crawling with unwanted bugs - I originally came up with a tournament to help pass time and have some fun as the beta was being worked on. It turned out pretty well, all things considered.
So I’ve returned with the Amazons of Anime tournament: the event that features all the best female action characters in anime. Back then, I came up with the characters, but this time it’s up to you!
Rules for nominations:
1. Ten characters per person.
2. Please give the character’s full name and the anime she is from.
3. To help maintain variety, give no more than two characters from the same anime.
4. If someone has already been nominated, you can nominate her again.
5. This shouldn’t be too hard to follow, but I would like to keep everyone out that debuted in 2012.
This is completely optional, but I would also like a brief reason why you recommended a character. Also, in order to maintain integrity (what we call a warrior) please make sure your nominees fall into at least one of the following categories:
I - She must have military experience.
II - She must fight life or death battles regularly.
*III - She must specialize in martial arts, weapons, or magic, and use them on enemies.
*I stress this one, since there are a lot of female characters who might be seen using a weapon, but never actually use them in combat. For example, just being in a kendo club doesn’t count!
There were 128 warriors last time around, so I hope you guys can at least match that considering you've got from now until Sunday, May 27th. You may also change your list as many times as you want as long as this thread remains open. I’ll give out more details later in the official discussion thread, but for now, get nominating!
