Dr. Whomura vs the Dalekyuubeys

The Megatokyo Anime Forum’s annual Anime Grand Prix is winding down with a surprisingly lopsided match between Kyuubey and Homura (paralleling a much more competitive match between Saber and Durarara!!’s Celty).

The Anime forum at Megatokyo is a hot-bed of SHAFT fanboys — half the eight quarter-finalists are from SHAFT shows, and SHAFT (particularly Madoka Magica) was well represented in the earlier rounds (even Madoka’s made it into the contest).

I should probably have mentioned the AGP earlier so people could participate in more than the endgame (especially since newcomers can’t vote until after they’ve posted a few times in the forums as an anti-sockpuppet measure). While the clubby atmosphere might be a bit intimidating, campaigning in it is more fun than most anime character competitions — creativity is rewarded. While most campaigns consist of images gleaned from the net (sometimes with added commentary) some contributions can be pretty stunning (people have written video-games in support of their characters (this is made easier with the advent of HTML5)).

And some of us just do Photoshop collages with bad puns.

Late update: memes from the Megatokyo Anime Grand Prix, where Nakiami was (sadly) defeated, due to too little familiarity with her series (and the rallying cry became “Watch Xam’d now!”), and where Akari was in a match-up at the time of this posting.

Just in case you weren't sure who that is.

Asthmatic, anemic hikkikomori librarian, hah!

As usual, these are photoshop collages of the work of real artists (to whom I apologize for abusing their work without being able to give them credit for the originals).

Brew! Brew! Fight the powah!

The Anime Grand Prix continues (earlier post here). This year, Oryzae was nominated again (and largely coasted through the initial elimination round on a “brew and memories” campaign, in which lastarial threatened us with apocalyptic visions of a fermentation-free alternate world.
