WELCOME TO THE SEMI - FINAL! 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. *** Battle 1 Nominated by Hayane Kino / Kino's Journey VS Nominated by Gens Jigen Daisuke / Lupin the Third Reason for each nomination Kino: Yes they are the same person.
