2018 Anime Couples Tournament Nominations



  • alt text

    Welcome to the Second Annual Best Anime Couple Tournament!

    @korrailli and myself will be the hosts for this tournament! The nomination process will start now and be lasting until next Friday, March 30, until 6:00 pm mountain time OR until the nomination spots have been filled.

    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. Nominations will be based on first come, first served (As long as they fit our other rules, of course)

    Couple cannot be swapped out or changed later, so please be aware of that when you do your nomination post!

    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!

    Please note, our last year winners Shirayuki and Zen are NOT eligible this year, but will instead face off with our winners from this year in a final round.

    Also, to make nominations equal, I will have 8 automatic qualifiers based off who the couples who were in our finals last year! The couples who get an AUTOMATIC ENTRY are,

    Romeo x Juliet - Romeo x Juliet
    Okabe x Kurisu - Steins;Gate
    Victor x Yuri - Yuri on Ice
    Edward x Winry - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
    Tomoe x Nanami - Kamisama Kiss
    Celty x Shinra - Durarara!!
    Hak x Yona - Yona of the Dawn
    Holo x Lawrence - Spice and Wolf

    ^^ These characters are automatically entered, so please do not be nominating them again! ^^

    Alright folks, unleash your fleet of ships!

  • @emdier I'm not making a nomination at this point, but have a question regarding how the nominations are made. I just noticed that @Queenira nominated "Katsuki Bakugo x Ochako Uraraka - MY Hero Academia". However, I feel "Midoriya x Ochako" is a better couple. By definition, this is a ship war. Is Ochako allowed to be nominated as a part of two different pairings? This same question could potentially be posed with any of the harem/reverse harem anime, so probably deserves at least some mention in the rules as well.



  • You guys made this hard...Taking so many of my choices.

  • @emdier Whoops, I thought I took out all the pairs that were already nominated.

    Switched Meliodas and Elizabeth for Karasuma and Jelavic.

    A character can be nominated in more than 1 ship (though, only nominated once per user). So there may end up being some characters that end up in more than one pairing.
    Last year we did have couples with a same character go against each other at the start, but this year we are just going to let all nominations compete.
