  • SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES

    Morel Mackernasey (Hunter x Hunter) - Added to fill in the final slot for the tournament and fill the HxH quota
    Steven A. Starphase (Blood Blockade Battlefront) - Added because he's got such a SWEET ASS name
    Jonathan Joestar (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) - Added to fill in the JoJo quota, because Joestars get preferential treatment
    Sousuke Yamazaki (Free! Eternal Summer) - My friend Megan really wanted him in there
    Gene Starwind (Outlaw Star) - Realized he was missing even from last year and added him because I'm the boss and I do what I want

    And our final entry, we've got quite the wild card on our hands. Someone nominated him last year, and at the time I thought it was absolutely preposterous. This year though, I thought about it, said "What the hell?", and added him in. Even though he technically breaks the "No beautiful bishonen types" rule, I honestly want to give him a chance and see how far he goes.

    For our final entrant into the tournament, we have…

    Kuranosuke Koibuchi (Princess Jellyfish) - Because it takes a REAL MAN to look that fabulous. ~_^

    And now, for the CUTS:

    Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist) - Replaced by Sig Curtis due to the whole "kill the nonbelievers" thing. Also because Sig is MEAT.
    Benny (Black Lagoon) - Replaced by Ginji because brains alone can't cut a bullet in half.
    Houka Inumuta (Kill la Kill) - Replaced by Mikisugi because he's bringing sexy back and you other lads don't know how to act.
    Neuro (Neuro: Supernatural Detective) - Right. This guy's just an outright sod. I know he "gets better", but geez no.
    Ginti (Death Parade) - I thought about nominating him myself at first, but after thinking long and hard, Ginti's amorality and disrespect for humans kinda disqualifies him. Also, that dirty trick he played on Mayu near the end.
    The Captain (Hellsing: Ultimate) - Despite probably being the most qualified character in all of H:U, the fact remains that he's an actual bonafide NAZI. Not sure I wanna go down that route just yet.

    Also, the following are competitors from last year's tournament who got cut due to size issues:

    Captain Ahab (Hakugei)
    Captain Brentan (Dominion Tank Police)
    Captain Nemo (Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water)
    Falcon (City Hunter)
    Goh Saruwatari (Godannar)
    Joe (Crusher Joe)
    Joe the Condor (Gatchaman)
    King Shoryu (Twelve Kingdoms)
    Kinnikuman (Kinnikuman)
    Mu La Flaga (Mobile Suit Gundam SEED)
    Rokurouta Sakuragi (Rainbow)
    Seiko Miyazawa/Oton (Shootfighter Tekken)
    Tenshiro Okakura (Rideback)
    The El Dorado 5 (GunxSword)
    Yugo Beppo (Yugo the Negotiator)

    Let me know if you want to give any of these guys a second chance.

    Anyways, here is the complete list of this year's potential entrants, all numbered and in alphabetical order. Please carefully look over this list, let me know what you think, and let me know honestly and truthfully if you are satisfied, who you'd swap out over whom, and who you feel is "unworthy" to compete this year.

    This topic will stay up until Monday, when the tournament will begin proper. Again, THIS IS NOT YET SET IN STONE. Changes MAY still be made.

    Have a look, and let me know what you think. :)

  • WOO KAIKI GOT IN!

    I know you haven't seen Monogatari, Hardy, and neither the Wiki or the TVTropes pages tell you everything about the characters, so nice to know you took my word on him.

    Also happy I didn't end up having to take Karma out for Koro-sensei. Thanks Astroman!

    But, while I haven't seen Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, things I've heard about it has me thinking Akatsuki doesn't really fit here. From what I hear, the guy can come across as a borderline rapist at times.



  • ^ Yeah, he's one of the ones I'm kinda iffy about. I'm also not sold on having Inuyasha of all people as an entrant. :hmm:

    Naruto at least gets a pass from me because he pretty much becomes Ninja Jesus near the end, and The Last gave him a big boost in masculinity with his "GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY WOMAN!!" face.



  • ^Yeah, I'd personally take Miroku over Inuyasha, even if he is a lech, albeit a harmless one.



  • how are Rock and Ayumu Aikawa in this list? rock is a bitch that is scared to get dirty and Ayumu is a wimpy perv lol if it was not for him being a zombie he wold be useless. id sub one for Simon (fairy tail) (yes i am still trying lol) any way otherwise not bad, alot of strong competitors :)
    and to @Heavenspiercing:

    Miroku over Inuyasha

    how? he is kind of a pervy cowered, and Inuyasha is a bad ass, nough said :)



  • @SpacemanHardy:

    118 King Bradley (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
    124 Koro-sensei (Assassination Classroom)

    Koro-sensei seems like an odd pick in terms of manliness for me. Like if we're talking like kindness as well as badassery then by all means I can dig it. The one that REALLY perplexes me is King Bradley who is LITERALLY a giant villainous jerkwad. Like maybe he went out manly but if Scar gets kicked out of this tournament for being too much of a jerk, then Bradley fits the bill just as much if not worse than Scar.

    Koro-sensei is a little iffy but I'm cool with having him in this tourney. Bradley…..not as much.

    @SpacemanHardy:

    167 Panthro (Thundercats (2011))

    I know the weird conditions for Panthro but it's still an odd pick to me. You wanna keep him sure but not a fan I guess of the weird technicality the 2011 show opens up for future nominees.

    @SpacemanHardy:

    181 Rock (Black Lagoon)

    Also worth mentioning is that while he is Rock, you might want to use his full name too. Something like:

    Rokuro "Rock" Okajima since instead of Chad I also used Yasutora "Chad" Sado.

    Also

    @alagor:

    rock is a bitch that is scared to get dirty

    Rock has honestly shown a lot more kindness as well as showing how truly tough he is especially when in the face of near and certain death. His staredown with Balalika near the end of Season 2 showed how tough the guy really was. Honestly while Rock isn't the manliest from Black Lagoon he's still a worthy contender.

    Also if you had some extra spots open from the discussions in this thread, here are a few ideas:

    Firo Prochaninezo - Baccano!!
    Kyohei Kadota - Durarara!!
    Portgas D. Ace - One Piece



  • It took me a while to figure out who Ginji was, and yeah, anyone who can slice a bullet in half with a sword has got to have guts. And I totally forgot about Mikisugi, who's not afraid to bare it all.

    Honestly, I'm surpised no one even considered Luffy; if I had known that would happen, I would have nominated him instead of Franky. And I second replacing one of the lesser contenders with Kyohei, considering that fight he had at the end of season 2 part 1.



  • @classyspartan:

    His staredown with Balalika near the end of Season 2

    he was starting to go insane at that point, and the fact he never did anything to prove's he is manly makes me think he should be out hell Garcia Lovelace was more of a man then Rock. any way… ya



  • Calling it now. Kuranosuke Koibuchi wins the whole shebang.



  • Here's my thinking on all of this:

    • Koro-sensei stays in because despite the whole "destroy the earth" claim (which the jury's still out on, I might add), he's actually a very, VERY good teacher. He takes care of his kids, personalizes their curriculum on an individual level so that they benefit the most from his lessons, gives them encouragement when the entire rest of the school is trying to demoralize them, protects them from harm whenever they're put into a dangerous spot, and all-in-all acts as a great role model. To those who've seen GTO, he's like Onizuka, only instead of a reformed biker gang leader he's a giant yellow tentacle monster.

    • Rock stays in because even though he's a non-combatant, he is a master strategist, and he's also stood up to some of the world's most dangerous and deadly people and lived. Also, while everyone else in the series has either turned off their moral compass or never had one in the first place, Rock still believes that people can be saved, and no matter what happens, he keeps coming back to try again.

    • Ayumu stays in because despite being cowardly and a little perverted, his heart is still in the right place, and he's willing to fight legions of untold horrors from the Netherworld just to protect the ones he cares about. Also, any man who battles demons while dressed in a pink maid outfit has more guts than you can imagine.

    • Panthro stays in because in my mind, if it has an Anime-Planet listing it's fair game. Interestingly enough, you could've even nominated Optimus Prime and it technically would've been legit.

    • Simon and Luffy are out because we already have 4 entrants for both Fairy Tail and One Piece. In Fairy Tail's case, all four characters are important lead roles, whereas Simon was just a bit character who showed up for 8 episodes then left. As for Luffy, while he's definitely got his fair share of manly traits, the other four beat him in terms of sheer masculinity, which as superfluous as it might seem, actually IS an important factor in manliness. His driftwood-level stupidity and Looney Toon-esque goofiness certainly don't help his case.

    • Akatsuki I'm on the fence about. While I too have not watched Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, I have heard a lot of people say that he's kind of a major tool who gets a bit on the "rapey" side every now and then. Being a little pervy is one thing, but from what I've heard he has a tendency to take things a bit too far. Also the whole "making girls pee themselves" thing is just… eww. I wouldn't mind switching him out for Kyohei if everyone's okay with it.

    • With Inuyasha, it's mainly that I just find him extremely annoying. I don't mind him being in the tournament, but I also don't mind switching him out for Miroku either. Heck, maybe even Sesshomaru would be a better choice. Whatever you guys think I should do will be fine.

    • King Bradley was nominated last year, and I put him in despite having never watched Brotherhood because I wanted to have at least one more manly villain in the tournament besides Master Asia. I know that 2003 Bradley is a right monster, but I was lead to believe that Brotherhood Bradley at least had a sense of nobility to him. If you prefer though, we can swap him out with Maes Hughes, who is someone I doubt any of you will have a problem with.

    While we're on the subject of characters we don't think are worthy, here are mine:

    • I like Karma a lot, but honestly he doesn't really strike me as the "manly" type. He's smart, cunning, and has generally good intentions, but he's also very creepy and has kind of a sociopathic streak going on. He's less "manly" and more of a little troll. I don't mind him being in, but I wouldn't have nominated him personally.

    • Alexander Anderson is another one I'm on the fence about. He's definitely got his sensitive side, but on the flip side he's also a raging psychopath who wants to slaughter every Protestant and non-Catholic he sees. He's not NEARLY as bad as Maxwell is and even offers amnesty and protection to Integra on one occasion, but he's still a religious extremist who's a few tacos short of a combination plate. Really if you think about it, hardly anyone in Hellsing is truly "manly" by the standard definition; Alucard is a vicious sadist, Anderson is an extremist sociopath, Walter is a traitor, and The Captain is an honest-to-God Nazi. Only Pip comes the closest to the standard, but even he's got his issues.

    • Oh, and Vegeta. I'll just come out and say it: I just straight up DO NOT like Vegeta. Never have, not even as a kid growing up watching DBZ on Toonami. First off, you have to remember that started out as a murderous psychopath who destroyed entire planets and civilizations just for fun, murdered his partner after he outlived his usefulness, and spent the better part of his life harboring a deep and intense grudge against Goku that even remained long after his face-turn. True, he's ironically a better husband and father than Goku is, but he's also extremely arrogant, prideful, and disdainful against those he feels are better than he is. He also has a tendency to shoot his mouth off before getting his ass handed to him, as well as turning into a complete pussy against people like Broly and Beerus (although the "THAT'S MY BULMA!!" scene was, admittedly, very admirable and impressive). Oh, and then there's the BINGO song. Oh dear lord... THE BINGO SONG. >.<

    • To be clear, which Lockon Stratos are we talking about, exactly? Neil or Lyle?

    • Finally, Jimmy Kudo..... I dunno, I just don't see it.

    Anyways, those are my thoughts.



  • Apologies to whoever nominated Akatsuki, but I am totally okay with him getting switched out for Kyohei. I'm kind of glad I remembered him before the tournament started because that was gonna bug me. Definitely okay with Kyohei swapping out Akatsuki.

    As for King Bradley…....as someone who loves FMA Brotherhood to death the whole thing about his nobility and his sense of pride is kind of true. He's evil and still a bit of a dick but he at least does seem more moral than his FMA 2003 counterpart. While I guess you could switch him out for Maes Hughes the truth is I at least can see the reasoning for it. I also just assumed you meant Bradley in general and didn't know that you specifically were referencing his Brotherhood incarnation. You get the grand say on the matter, so if you want Bradley from FMA Brotherhood to remain I can at least see the reasoning.

    Also I would actually be cool with Sesshomaru replacing Inuyasha as well.



  • @SpacemanHardy:

    • To be clear, which Lockon Stratos are we talking about, exactly? Neil or Lyle?

    At first I was thinking Neil, and while I do like him, I honestly ended up thinking Lyle is the more "manlier" of the twins.

    Whereas Neil is partially motivated by revenge for the death of his parents, sister, and the destruction of his home, and makes some less than intelligent decisions because of it (though he's careful not to let himself obsess over it), Lyle rejects revenge entirely, not because he thinks revenge is wrong exactly, but because he believes it's a pointless thing to pursue. When he finally has the chance to kill the person who ruined their lives, Lyle chooses not to go through with it. It's only when Ali rejects his mercy and tries to kill him that Lyle just goes ahead and blows his brains out.

    His development throughout S2 was pretty great. He hated the idea of being viewed as nothing more than "Neil's replacement", so initially he intentionally acts like an ahole and a lech so people will differentiate him from his brother, regardless of whether his allies end up liking him or not. We see Neil act as a sort of mentor to his comrades, but we never see him actually transition into that role, he's like that from the start. Over the course of S2, we see Lyle change from a jerka double agent, to a valuable ally of Celestial Being.

    @SpacemanHardy:

    • Finally, Jimmy Kudo….. I dunno, I just don't see it.

    I was considering going for Richard at first. However, while Richard is a lot more competent than you'd expect him to be, he's usually far too impatient and shortsighted, opting to go with the first thoughts that come to his head, and wanting to close cases as soon as possible. When the case is personal for him, such as when it involves his daughter or estranged wife (who he still loves dearly), he's a lot more focused.

    Jimmy doesn't have those flaws. He always thinks things through properly instead of jumping to conclusions. No matter how small it is, if he has a hunch that a case might not be 100% closed yet, he'll pursue it to the end. He values human life immensely, and the few times he's failed to save someone haunts him deeply. He's aware that every human has their own flaws, and never judges people too harshly for their crimes (unless the motive is pretty clearly villainious, such as killing for money). It takes a while to kick in and an effort to put up with him (since he can be quite arrogant), but once you befriend Jimmy, he'll never abandon you.

    And he loves Rachael/Ran like you wouldn't believe. Touch one hair on her head, and prepare to get a soccer ball to the face. Just because he has the body of child, that doesn't mean he's completely weak and defenseless.



  • So I went ahead and watched the first two episodes of Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero today just out of curiosity….

    Yeah, no. Akatsuki is out of the tournament. I could tolerate his snarky bad attitude okay (in fact that part was honestly kind of refreshing compared to so many modern day panty-waist heroes), but stripping girls' underwear off them just for fun, nearly raping Miu in his sleep, and the whole thing about making the girls wet themselves was just a big no-no for me.

    Dota-chin it is, then.



  • How is inuyasha more annoying then miroku?



  • @SpacemanHardy:

    Dota-chin it is, then.

    Surprised he wasn't in to begin with. I mean, being voiced by Steve Blum should be an automatic qualifier :P



  • Okay, so here are the changes to the list so far:

    • Kyohei Kadota replaces Akatsuki Ousawa
    • Maes Hughes replaces King Bradley
    • Sesshomaru replaces Inuyasha
    • Lockon Stratos refers specifically to Lyle Dylandy instead of Neil

    If everyone is okay with these changes, then so be it. If there are any other changes to the roster you'd like to make, speak now or forever hold your peace.



  • why replace inuyasha ? and how is he annoying? also Sesshomaru is evil lol



  • After today's vote regarding which Inuyasha character should be added to the roster ended in a tie, I felt the best decision would be to kick an unpopular character from last year out (in this case Col. Paya Livingston) and add BOTH Miroku and Sesshomaru to the final roster.
