    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.


    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 8

    Nominated by Jamie

    Miyamoto Musashi / Vagabond


    Nominated by Warpuppy
    Kirito / Sword Art Online

    Reason for each nomination

    Miyamoto Musashi:

    Literally the most well known and legendary swordsman in all of history. While the Musashi of Vagabond is a fictional version of the real man, he is no less epic.



    I want to see how Scalpelexis will react to someone nominating Kirito :).

    he's obviously trying to compensate for something and here's what the other one has to say about it

    Anyone but a OP character, Kirito, or a damn puppet.

    If Harlock's gravity saber was more a sword and less a gun, we could've had a real pirate in this.

    Thats the question isn't it..? are we gonna knock out Kirito in this first round, or are we gonna make him win, to troll ourselves..?

    Watcha got 'gainst puppets, eh?

    (says the guy who'd barely heard of the show and didn't know it featured puppets...)

    Shit, I wanted to see whackass Zoro eliminated in the 1st round. If Kirito makes it pass the 1st it's pure trolling.

    Can't believe I'm rooting for zoro here, as he's my least favorite straw hat. But he's a bit cooler than kill la eyebrows. Doesn't help that I hardly remember KLK at all

    One Piece hasn't been in as popular in the west as some of the other big shounen. Meanwhile Kill la Kill was something of a big deal in western anime fandom when it was airing. I just felt like Kill la Kill carried enough weight that Satsuki could probably beat Zoro and make it out of the first round. Not that I'm displeased by the result. I'm not that heavily into either series these days. I'm waaay behind on One Piece and my interest in catching up isn't that high.

    Kill la Kill is the indie band that put out a unique, one of a kind top 10 album.

    One Piece is the typical pop act that's been pumping out the same old manufactured music for decades.

    Speaking of which, I'm surprised Ryuuko wasn't nominated.
    And Satsuki honestly had the most god-awful fighting costume ever.

    most god-awful costume in Kill la Kill eh? sounds like something of an achievement...

    I think that's giving too much credit to Kill la Kill. It's got a unique aesthetic, but it's the same old revenge/underdog story.
