Let’s see what’s cooking in the two polls in this group. Continue reading ‘The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Hanyuu – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”’

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.
