2017 Anime Couples Tournament Discussion



  • alt text

    Welcome to the Best Anime Couple Tournament!

    @korrailli and myself have decided to host this tournament! Nominations have now been closed (See Here - https://www.funimation.com/forum/topic/10653/2017-anime-couples-tournament-nominations?page=1) and because we have more nominations then spots, we will be posting qualifying rounds shortly to see which couples will be duking it out for remaining spots.

    Each character will only be competing in the tournament once, so we will be having qualifying rounds to see which couple the character will be competing with. For the remaining spots, we did have some nominations where it is questionable that there is truly evidence of them being canon/having romantic interest, so those couples will be pitted against each other and popular vote will decide which get the chance to compete in the official tournament.

    Those threads will be open 24 hours, and will determine our qualifying couples! Then the official tournament will start Monday, March 13!

    We will be posting winner of the votes here as we go, and posting any updates so stay tuned!

    Rules:

    • 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 won't be included.

    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!

    Typo. Supposed to be a "Nope." here, according to your original post.

    Ah. Yeah, things happen sometimes and lif gets in the way.

    P.S. You might wanna edit the Naruto/Hinata vs. Hana/Okami post. You used the wrong images from yesterday's Zen/Shirayuki vs. Inuyasha/Kagome match. Just giving you the heads up.
