    Hopefully that takes care of everything, since it is a field of 256 there are probably some easy wins in the first round, but hopefully not too many.

    Almost forgot, here is how I'm going to score things. Like always the polls come first, if there's a tie, then I will go to the posts in the threads as the tiebreaker. If things are still tied after that, then I'll factor in how passionately people push for the character they voted for to win. And somehow if that still doesn't help, then I'll go to the old tried and true coin flip.

    Unfortunately I lost all the data from the first two tournaments which is why I only have the last two champions marked. Only thing I can say for sure is that Light Yagami and Frieza were finalists in the 2011 tournament (no tournaments in 2012 or 2013)

    Also, no matches on the weekends so things will take a while. I still wanna watch Toonami w/o worrying about getting matches ready for that day. :p

    EDIT
    Since its has been pointed out to me that Hades and Precht Gaebolg from Fairy Tail are one in the same, so I have replaced the Hades entry with Biko Daitokuji from Project A-Ko.

    EDIT #2
    Just noticed this as I was posting matches, it seems that I had one of the Toguro Brothers listed twice, so the 2nd instant of that name gets a very last minute replacement in Janes from Cat Planet Cuties.



  • damn thats a long list,



  • It'll be interesting if we end up with SERN vs. Sibyl System in the final round. XD



  • High up on the list, you listed Hades from Fairy Tail, then lower down, you listed Precht Gaebolg from Fairy Tail. But they are one and the same person.



  • @iamshodan:

    High up on the list, you listed Hades from Fairy Tail, then lower down, you listed Precht Gaebolg from Fairy Tail. But they are one and the same person.

    The one drawback to doing these tournaments is that I can't watch all of these shows so I'd miss something like that. Anyways, I'll replace the "Hades" listing with " Biko Daitokuji" from the anime classic Project A-Ko.



  • IMPORTANT INFO

    Oh yeah, one last thing before we begin later. For the sake of the first two rounds not taking forever, those matches will groups of 4 instead of the traditional 1-on-1 battles. Once we're down to 64 characters in the third round, then we shall go into 1-on-1 competition for the remainder of the tournament.



  • Okay folks, first day is in the books and the results are in…

    Monokuma - Danganronpa: The Animation
    Aion Chrono Crusade
    Arlong - One Piece
    Makoto Shishio - Rurouni Kenshin
    Love Machine - Summer Wars
    Raoh - Fist of the North Star
    Kneesocks Daemon -Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

    Zorin Blitz - Hellsing Ultimate
    Annie Leonhart - Attack on Titan
    Misogi Kumagawa - Medaka Box



  • Sucks that Caster got the boot this early. You'd think having a literal mountain of dead children would make him a shoe-in. :hmm:



  • Caster is twisted, but he's not the most popular villain in Fate/Zero. I'll bet Gil and Kirei win a few matches between them.



  • @7jaws7:

    Caster is twisted, but he's not the most popular villain in Fate/Zero. I'll bet Gil and Kirei win a few matches between them.

    Yeah, but Gilgamesh sucks and I hate him. -_-



  • Day two is in the books, but first a correction:
    I just noticed this as I was posting matches, looks like I had one of the Toguro Brothers listed twice, so the 2nd instant of that name gets a very last minute replacement in Janes from Cat Planet Cuties.

  • Eto made it to the 2nd Round.

    Hail the Queen.

    Frankly, with the anime being the butchered, confusing mess that it was, I'm surprised that Eto's getting recognition. I'm happy though.

    No idea how some nobody (K) from a nothing anime (Absolute Duo) managed to make it, but I guess that's what makes things interesting.



  • I'm gonna push Sladder Honeysuckle as far as I possibly can because his name is SLADDER HONEYSUCKLE.

    EDIT
    Well… looks like I caught another mistake of mine while looking through the list of everyone that made it to the 2nd round. Apparently I had Aion from Chrono Crusade listed twice (matches 1 and 51) and he won in both of his matches, so I'm gonna kick out the first one and replace the extra with Justice from Afro Samurai since he would have advanced had it not been for the extra listing for Aion. I truly apologize for all the screwing up I seem to be doing in this tournament, hopefully I can get all the kinks out and have things run smoother the rest of the way.

    That concludes the first round. We've had a few surprises, and a few sure things so far. I wonder who's gonna end up going the distance this year? Anyways, no matches today while I prepare things for the next round, enjoy your day off. . .
