WELCOME TO ROUND ONE! Rules: Each poll will be open for about 48 hours. There's no longer a set limit of votes someone needs to win. Whoever is in the lead after 48 hours have passed will be declared the winner. If after 48 hours* there is a tie, then the poll will be reset and voting will be extended for another 24 hours.* *Note: these are not hard time limits. We will observe the activity in the poll thread and adjust time accordingly. After each round the poll at the top will be changed for the next battle. We will always post a reminder when a new poll goes up so don't worry about missing out. We still want you to post your thoughts on each match up in this thread. We want to encourage lively debate on each round and now we don't have to worry about the vote count getting buried while people discuss the battle. NO BASHING OTHER USERS Please keep in mind that there will be some spoilers in this thread as the nature of the competition makes it impossible to have fun discussion without spoilers. However, that being said normal spoiler etiquette is still in play so any detailed spoilers must be placed under spoiler tags. Since multiple anime will be discussed at once please make sure to clearly label which series the spoiler is for. *** Nomination Thread: https://www.anime-planet.com/forum/...nomination-closed.335774/page-10#post-2156853 Battle 10 Nominated by Thelann Franken Stein / Soul Eater VS Nominated by Starletka Watanuki Kimihiro / xxxHolic VS Nominated by Hayane Yamagami Lucy / Servant x Service VS Nominated by Nicknames Tsukimi Kurashita / Princess Jellyfish Reason for Nomination Franken Stein: Proof that the best teachers are sadists. He can use any weapon he wants, yet specializes in unarmed combat. Why? Because he can. - Watanuki Kimihiro: Born on April 1st, this noodle boy has a heart of gold. - Yamagami Lucy: Her ahoge, cuteness, glasses, black-clothed shirt, and everything makes her so adorable. Even her long name makes her perfect (I relate too much to her with her revenge...). If I wasn't a female she would be my best waifu! - Tsukimi Kurashita: She's a cutie and you can't deny it.
