2016 Amazons of Anime Nominations



  • As LuckySeven is wrapping up his event, I'm ready to take nominations for the 2016 Amazons of Anime Tournament. This thread is for taking nominations only - I haven't created a date yet to start the actual tournament, but it won't be until at least a few weeks.

    Before you begin listing names, please note there are 20 characters that are NOT up for nomination. The first four are previous champions, and are thus retired for good:

    2012 Champion:

    ! Saber - Fate/Zero (def. Motoko Kusanagi)

    2013 Champion:
    ! Utena Tenjou - Revolutionary Girl Utena (def. Kyouko Sakura)
    2014 Champion:
    ! Balsa - Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit (def. Revy)

    2015 Champion:
    ! Sango - Inuyasha (def. Celty Sturluson)

    Of course, all four will be eligible in the 2016 Best Anime Character Tournament next winter.

    The next 16 are not up for nomination, but they will still participate this year. In fact, I'm giving them automatic entries so you don't have to use up a nomination for them! These heroines are all forum favorites, that have done very well in past tournaments:

    Alice - Pandora Hearts
    Birdy Cephon Altera - Birdy the Mighty
    Celty Sturluson - Durarara!! (2015 Best Character)
    Duck - Princess Tutu
    Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail (2013 Best Character)
    Kurisu Makise - Steins;Gate (2014 Best Character Runner-up)
    Lina Inverse - Slayers (2009 Best Character)
    Maka Albarn - Soul Eater
    Motoko Kusanagi - Ghost in the Shell
    Mikoto Misaka - A Certain Magical Index (2015 Best Character Runner-up)
    Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan
    Morgiana - Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic
    Rally Vincent - Gunsmith Cats
    Revy - Black Lagoon (2011 Best Character Runner-up, 2012 Best Character)
    Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist
    Seras Victoria - Hellsing Ultimate

    Here are the rules for nominations:

    • Please include the character's name and the anime they are from in more or less the same format as above. And although you don"t have to, it would help if they were listed alphabetically by first name as well, to help others spot characters that were already nominated.

    • You may nominate a character that"s already been suggested, but it won"t help us reach the desired number of 256 participants. If we can"t get to that number by near the end of April, I"ll pull characters from last year"s list.

    • You can nominate up to 16 characters (the norm is usually 15, but since I included 16 auto entries I'm giving you guys the extra option.)

    • You cannot list characters from the same television series, movie, or O.V.A.

    • You can nominate characters that debuted as recently as the 2016 Winter Season.

    • Although this is a tournament for heroines, some anti-heroes and villains may be allowed, depending on the nature of their actions. A yandere like Yuno Gasai could qualify, but characters like Medusa and Diva are out of the question.

    Entry into this tournament is a first come, first serve basis. The first 240 names you guys suggest (provided they all qualify) will get in for certain. If we can get 15 more people to create lists of 16 qualifying characters with no double nominations, we will reach 256 and the tournament will be set.

    Lastly - and most importantly - don't stick to just one sub-genre. Try suggesting a variety of heroines!

  • @SpacemanHardy:

    Also, can Balalaika get a special nomination for doing well in the Villains Tournament?

    It actually came down to her or Revy for Black Lagoon's representative. I chose Revy since she already won a tournament, and I imagine TIL Nobu will use a spot for Balalaika, especially since I've upped the limit to 16.

    1. Sakura Haruno - Naruto
    2. Mavis - Fairy Tail Zero
    3. Mikasa Akerman - Attack on Titan
    4. Akane Tsunemori - Psycho-Pass

    Just a couple notes, nubguy:

    1. Mavis's full name is Mavis Vermillion.

    2. Mikasa and Akane have already been nominated, so you might want to switch them out.



  • Nah, I'll change out my #16 so he can nominate Akane.



  • I'm just going to name drop Eureka from Eureka Seven and never vote on these things.

    Well and Neptune from Hyperdimension Neptunia because she's my avatar (well actually its NEXT Purple but its still the same CPU)

    Ren Kogyoku - Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic
    Kurumi Tokisaki - Date A Live
    Aiz Wallenstein - Is It Wrong to Try and Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (I'll just refer to it as DanMachi from here on)

  • @iamshodan:

    1. Integra Hellsing (Hellsing Ultimate)

    That's Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing to you! Gotta say it in full mate.

    Also, Lina Inverse, Nice Holystone, and Roberta have all been nominated prior.



  • Also you can only nominate one woman from Fairy Tail at a time.



  • @SpacemanHardy:

    Also you can only nominate one woman from Fairy Tail at a time.

    To clarify, can't nominate two characters from the same franchise. So you can't also nominate TWO women from Fairy Tail, as well as TWO women from Evangelion too. Gotta choose which one you like more from each and only nominate one.

    I will say though, I could change my vote for nice to be Chane Laforet so you can keep Nice Holystone nomination.
