2017 Anime Couples Tournament Nominations



  • alt text

    Welcome to the Best Anime Couple Tournament!

    @korrailli and myself have decided to host this tournament! The nomination process will start now and be lasting until next Friday, March 10, until 6:00 pm mountain time.

    The rules are simple:

    • Couples do not need to be canon, but should have valid evidence supporting them.

    • Same sex couples are allowed.

    • No rated R couples here. Any characters from hentai will not be included.

    • A character can only be nominated once per poster, but there can be 3 nominated couples per show.

    • For Nomination, please list them as follows.

    Character 1 x Character 2 - Anime Title

    • Each poster may nominate 15 couples. More popular couples with more votes will be placed with higher seeding, and when it gets down to couples with 1 nomination, a face off will be held to compete for the remaining spots. Each character will only have one ship heading in to the official tournament, so in the case of multiple nominations involving one character, a vote will be held to decide which ship gets in.

    The tournament will run single elimination, with each vote counting as one point. You may only vote once per match and once that vote is cast, IT CANNOT BE CHANGED. So please, choose wisely.

    It will run in the same style as the 2016 character tournament, with your post updating the current score with your vote.

    Example:

    Person 1 votes for couple A:
    Vote for couple A:
    Couple A - 1
    Couple B - 0

    Person 2 votes for couple B:
    Couple A - 1
    Couple B - 1

    If multiple voters post at the same time, voters are allowed to check their score tallies and can edit them if they are incorrect. If after 24 hours there is a tie, the tie will be broken through random coin flip.

    After the semifinals of each bracket, there will be a third-place match between the two losers before the finals.

    This will be a tournament with 128 spots.

    In this tournament, bringing up good arguments for your nominations are encouraged! We would love to have some good, healthy discussion but be sure to keep it civil!

    Honestly, I wasn't sure what participation would be like and if people would even be interested, but it's looking good so far! If we had the nominations for it, I'd be cool putting our number to 128.

    We currently have 99 nominations (When you take in to account multiple nominations for certain couples) so we will still need a bit more. Hopefully we get some new people, if we don't I may just open it up so we can take 5 more nominations per poster. or something like that to get us to the 128.
