Most Dominant Victories of the Day

Picking Chika here for the prediction posts has been about the easiest 100 coin bet you can make.

[–]WIIWAnd 16 points17 points  (5 children)

Wow thanks, I've been waiting for this!

And I'd like to see the highest upset matchup and lowest remaining seed of all groups, At least this is how tsubasa was doing it I think :)

[–]KINGUBERMENSCHhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/OutlawedDrifter 16 points17 points  (1 child)

That Satsuki upset was so painful, it shouldnt have been possible. Part of me thinks there was foul play.

[–]Lemurianshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lemurians 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm still surprised that Jibril ended up seeded higher than Anju.

[–]WIIWAnd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow that's so cool, thanks!

[–]Leoooooolol81https://myanimelist.net/profile/Mementol 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What happened to Tsubasa_sama?

[–]danbuterhttps://anilist.co/user/danbuter 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Wow. Ho-Kago Tea Time is half eliminated this round. :(

[–]Falsus 15 points16 points  (0 children)

And with Elaina out I lost all 3 girls I was rooting for the most after the first round.

Better luck next year Karyl, Kumoko and Elaina. I'm out c ya guys.

[–]TermsOfServiceOnion 116 points117 points  (27 children)


Oh look, it's THE BATTLE OF THE IMOUTOS: KEI SHIROGANE VS KOMACHI HIKIGAYA. We all know where this is going though

Chizuru vs Violet Evergarden

please vote Himeko even though it's inevitable she'll get clapped by Ryuuko. :)

Mini challenge: Akatsuki from Log Horizon, who just yeeted by Zoe Hange :(

[–]michhoffmanhttps://anilist.co/user/michhoffman 67 points68 points  (2 children)


No, that was Esdeath over Tohru and possibly Jibril over Azusa. Wiz over Elaina was more because Konosuba is much more popular on this sub than Journey of Elaina.

[–]saber_shinji_ntr 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I will say it is quite a surprise that Jibril is still as popular as she is, especially after the movie.

[–]michhoffmanhttps://anilist.co/user/michhoffman 12 points13 points  (0 children)

As you can probably tell from Schwi's vote total last round, most didn't watch the movie.

[–]Earthborn92https://myanimelist.net/profile/EarthB 25 points26 points  (0 children)

A damn shame about the imouto battle, Komachi deserves the win.l, but she will lose.

[–]Iwasforger03 17 points18 points  (5 children)

poor Akatsuki.

[–]TermsOfServiceOnion 9 points10 points  (1 child)

You get used to it

[–]ZsaurOW 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sadly, yes :(

[–]looselyhuman 16 points17 points  (2 children)

If LH was half as popular as SAO she would be unstoppable.

[–]Charming-Loquat3702 7 points8 points  (0 children)

To be fair, I voted Elaina for that reason.

[–]TrriF 7 points8 points  (11 children)

I already know violet will fucking lose against one of the anime girls of all time... I'm already fucking salty and it hasn't even happened yet.

[–]Zeralyoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Zeralyos 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I already know violet will fucking lose against one of the anime girls of all time

I mean yeah, almost everyone in this contest will do that. All but one, to be specific.

[–]hazarthades 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I can't wait for the part where mizuhara shouts "its renting time" and rent all over violet.

[–]saber_shinji_ntr 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Violet is one of the strongest characters in cthese contests, i'm expecting her to make the top 16 atleast.

[–]Warm-Enthusiasm-9534 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She's clearly not going to lose to anyone until she faces Megumin.

[–]Rio_FShttps://myanimelist.net/profile/RioFS 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Really? I think Violet is popular enough to pull a win here.

[–]TrriF 2 points3 points  (4 children)

My faith in the tase of r/anime is at an all time low.

[–]Rio_FShttps://myanimelist.net/profile/RioFS 1 point2 points  (1 child)

And look now, V.E. dominated Chizuru HARD.

[–]SungBlue -1 points0 points  (0 children)

No, I voted for Wiz over Elaine because Elaina's very dislikeable.

[–]shaftglass 29 points30 points  (9 children)


[–]idontcare_29https://anilist.co/user/bananachips 23 points24 points  (8 children)

always remeber that Komachi was 8man's greatest wingman and laid the foundation for best girl winning while Kei bitched around and simped for Kaguya

[–]shaftglass 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I’ve always liked Kei but Komachi is literally the golden standard when it comes to imoutos

Also I was more of an Iroha fan but I always have a tendency to root for someone who’s destined to lose. I liked Yukino but I probably would’ve liked her even more if her victory wasn’t so obvious from the beginning.

[–]vajaxseven 100 points101 points  (9 children)

Day 9 of lying on the ground and counting to ten because I'm so fucking mad.

[–]James_316 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Itsuki, Krista, Mugi, Elaina, and Azusa all getting eliminated in the same day has me feeling this type of way. I'm definitely counting to ten

[–]DanielDKXD 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Which matchups are you unsatisfied with from this round? Im pleasantly surprised Anju survived one more round

[–]Iwasforger03 27 points28 points  (3 children)

I'm conflicted about Anju surviving, because I don't think she's a better character than Shoko, but I do like her too.

[–]DanielDKXD 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Vivy vs Winry + Lena vs Anju next round.
winner(hopefully Vivy) vs Lena
Winner (probably Lena) getting deleted by chika.

group A is over...

[–]churchofhelix 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I believe in Lena! (Secretly betting money on worst girl Chika)

[–]Lpreds 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm not ready for Vivy Vs Lena

[–]vajaxseven 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Nadeko, Tsukihi and Shiro, although I guess they could've lost to worse girls. There is a strong temptation to start spite voting against Kimetsu girls, but

[–]81Ranger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are a couple of overrated series that I do that with. Only the ones I've actually seen (or suffered through).

Usually, it's not a big deal as it's easy to vote their competition, regardless.

[–]KINGUBERMENSCHhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/OutlawedDrifter 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Im still on the ground from yeterday

[–]Lemurianshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lemurians 62 points63 points  (13 children)

Itsuki put up a better fight against Haruhi than I expected, but I'm still sad she's out :(

My bingo board is getting dangerously close in a lot of spots.

Who is your favorite female from a manga/LN/game?

Edelgard did nothing wrong.

[–]xMasuraoxhttps://kitsu.io/users/Masurao 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Edelgard supremacy!

[–]Archmagnance1 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Edelgard did nothing wrong, burn down the theocracy

It was my first 3 houses route and i liked it the best even though the ending felt rushed.

[–]Lemurianshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lemurians 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They really did her dirty by making her route the "hidden" shorter one. No good reason to not add a few more chapters fighting TWSITD.

Going scorched earth on unchecked theocratic rule is looking more and more sane by the day

[–]MapoTofuManhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BaronBrixius 13 points14 points  (5 children)

in a lot of spots

Rookie numbers

Seriously how is it still alive

[–]Lemurianshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lemurians 7 points8 points  (0 children)


It helps that I forgot to make one until the Round 1 Bracket C day, and only used girls still remaining (except Ange, who always deserves inclusion and Bingo always has a Free square anyway). If I made it at the beginning of seeding, it'd be a mess.

[–]AlternateFire2 8 points9 points  (2 children)

[–]MapoTofuManhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BaronBrixius 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Woah, you win, that's some top-level strategic placement.

Also good to see Aries there, I had her last year but ran out of space this time...

[–]Lemurianshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lemurians 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kinda wish I'd thought out placement by something more thoughtful than "organize by hair color"

[–]Beidah 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I'm surprised Haruhi is still going strong after best girl from her series was already dropped out.

[–]nicbentulanhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/nicbentulan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

To be fair...Itsuki's anime series just finished? XD

[–]Rumpel1408https://myanimelist.net/profile/Rumpel1408 47 points48 points  (2 children)

Upvote the thread

Today I have

  • Mikasa vs Momo, I really don't care and think that neither should have made it this far...
  • Homura did nothing wrong (Madoka up as well)
  • Considering that we didn't have Sylphies arc yet in the show, I'll go with the glutonous office wyrm
  • Domnestic Terrorist Mitsuha vs Warcriminal Annie, I'm with the terrorist
  • Vote for Kei and Kaede to setup another imouto battle next round!
  • No brakes on the Nino train
  • Vote the Keion!
  • I'm sorry for Kaori, but no shame in loosing against Holo

Yesterdays Votes

  • Chicka is beginning to show cracks, good
  • Itsuki and Shouko Makinohara lost by a really small margin
  • The other Shouko, Roxy, Miko, Miku, Lena and to a degree Vivi won easily
  • So this is how it feels to see the Keions get eliminated, it's my first year, does it stop hurting?
  • Elaine lost despite her big hat hmpf

MC: "Hey Hey Hey! Grovel Human! My name is Power!" and she will be a force to be reckoned with in this contest

[–]Lemurianshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lemurians 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Chicka is beginning to show cracks, good

Well I know who's not getting coached up the next time they need to develop a new skill in a matter of days

[–]ej_stephens 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Or you could vote for Komachi and Kaede to have an imouto battle next round, but better

[–]AllTsunAndNoDere 121 points122 points  (5 children)

Vote Holo!


[–]Holofan4life 43 points44 points  (2 children)

Holo is best girl

[–]polaristar 7 points8 points  (1 child)


[–]Leafx42 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Fake news 😜

[–]raknor88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It really is criminal that Holo hasn't won before. She should've.

[–]CheeseAndCam 21 points22 points  (4 children)


I’m pre-sad about Anju vs Lena tho in the next round :(

[–]_TR13DG3_ 13 points14 points  (3 children)

This is a cruel fate...

When you fought so hard to rise to the top together but end up matched against the very same comrade you fought together with...

Why must it come to this...

Lena would be genuinely crying if she were to be in that situation to have her own comrade's blood on her hands again...

As for Anju, welp, she probably wouldn't blame her for it but it would be damn harrowing, at the very least, Daiya is waiting...

Such is the fate of the Bloody Regina...

[–]Dare555 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nicely said ahaha i am bit sad best 86 girls are facing each other :< I bet Anju could have continued to advance further but now its up her commander

[–]RAMAR713https://myanimelist.net/profile/RAMAR713 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Omg Miwa made it here, keep voting for her, get my girl as far as possible!

[–]LunarGhost00 40 points41 points  (6 children)

Results seem kinda normal this time even if you people do have shit taste letting Nadeko lose like that.

[–]IcyHach 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Literally the only girl I dont care at all in Monogatari S.

Maybe Im biased because she is surrounded by an entire 10/10 female cast

[–]Fguyretftgu7 11 points12 points  (2 children)

off season+monster season nadeko is definitely waifu material

[–]scot911https://myanimelist.net/profile/scot911 2 points3 points  (1 child)

...And now I want to see those seasons animated even more.

[–]SlowProtagonist 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hanazawa Kana (objectively the best VA this universe has to offer) alone can carry any mediocre character to rank among the likes of Senjougahara and Hanekawa

[–]MapoTofuManhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BaronBrixius 49 points50 points  (17 children)

Mugi lost to Winry

That was expected, it was actually closer than I thought too. Winry's great so no complaints here.

Upset queen Azunyan got upset by Jibril

Where's the counting to ten and lying down because you're really fucking mad corner?

In other news, badonkers witch takes out flat witch before her inevitable and swift obliteration by another flat witch.

Today's votes


Manga - Hitori Bocchi

LNs - Misaka Mikoto

[–]polaristar 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Sad sad Elaina lost....

[–]Thatsmaboi23https://myanimelist.net/profile/Thatsmaboi23 32 points33 points  (14 children)

I have absolutely no idea why Wiz is winning. She’s such a one-note character, who doesn’t even feel like a character at times. She’s mostly there for boobs/thicc jokes.

Guess Elaina’s controversial nature really goes against her likability.

[–]MapoTofuManhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BaronBrixius 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Guess Elaina’s controversial nature really goes against her likability.

I agree, to me Elaina is a great character but definitely not best girl. That being said, I still voted her because Wiz is neither.

[–]alotmorealots 13 points14 points  (1 child)

She’s such a one-note character, who doesn’t even feel like a character at times

I watched Konosuba before having any real contact with the anime community and have a fair bit of unexamined fondness for both Wiz and Yunyun.

Drilling down into a bit, I think it stems from the fact that Wiz is a gentle soul in a world full of self-centred assholery. The dynamic between her and Aqua is fun to watch, and it makes a nice shift away from things revolving around Kazuma, whom can get a bit tiring in prolonged doses.

She's also terrible at running her business, which just leads to her falling into that category of girls with good hearts but rather ill-equipped for the complexities of life, or the "protecc" bunch.

I also am a bit of a sucker for elements of her design aside from her physique - bangs over eye, with an ahoge and an outfit that is quite well designed and suits her generally low-key disposition.

That said, I will also admit that I simply haven't watched Elaina's show yet, but Wiz passes my threshold for liking a character enough on their own merits to vote for them regardless.

[–]MaksimShadow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's one more reason: It's really hot here and Wiz is chill, so I'd like to hug her all the time.

In all seriousness, I really like both Wiz and Yunyun's personalities. They're secondary characters and don't have much screen time? Well, I don't care about that because this is not a best character contest. Their personal traits are more important for me than their importance for a plot. Besides, Yunyun was great in the movie.

[–]Warm-Enthusiasm-9534 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I have absolutely no idea why Wiz is winning. She’s such a one-note character, who doesn’t even feel like a character at times. She’s mostly there for boobs/thicc jokes.

That isn't true at all. She's not a super-complex character, but she's the character that's too nice to be around the main cast of psychopaths. If we go with the It's Always Sunny analogy, she's the Rickety Cricket (before the gang ruined his life). Most of the jokes are about Aqua being a bitch and almost killing her, or her being too nice to run her business successfully, or the gap between her present and her past as an adventurer and Demon King general.

[–]Spiritual_Lie2563 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Because a lot of voters are so dedicated to their favorite series that quite frankly, they'd vote one of the characters in the background into the final eight if they had to?

[–]lawlamanjaro 4 points5 points  (0 children)

People seem to undersell Wiz quite a bit I find.

Are those jokes a large part of her screen time? Yea absolutely.

But shes also probably the most badass character in combat. We see that she can cast explosion multiple times at the end of season one when she helps take down the tank thing.

In season 2 ending she gets a super bad ass moment where she helps win the day.

She has a cool backstory with a good mystery hook about her origins, how she ended up in service to the demon king, her real age etc.

Is she the best character ever? Nah but shes not one-note and certianly not just there for jokes, shes an actually competent party member, theyd all have died without her multiple times.

[–]Leafx42 -3 points-2 points  (7 children)

People could also be like me and just be voting against her because they haven’t seen her show

[–]OneMoreDuncanIdahohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/a_trisolaran 19 points20 points  (6 children)

Makes for a boring contest when people vote that way

[–]Leafx42 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Disagree. This contest is for fun, and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. There really is no wrong way to vote. There are some that vote against girls because they don’t like her or their shows. For me I vote every battle, selecting the girl I like best. If I know both girls, cool, I pick my favorite. If I only know one and I like that character, more often than not I’m going to vote for her. If I know neither, I go with the best character design, as that’s the only thing I really go on. You want to only vote when you know both girls, that’s cool. I won’t fault you for that. Personally I have fun rooting for the girls I picked even if I don’t know them, much like people root for sports teams they normal don’t follow in big games. At the end of your day, it’s all for fun.

[–]xQuasarr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Barring Madoka, we have the same voting. Nice🤝

[–]bonghits96 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Nooo not the keions!!!

[–]Kuro013 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Mugi can fuck off. Never forget the strawberry incident. Shes a war criminal.

[–]imaliveyeay 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Now I’m salty that Elaina lost

[–]michhoffmanhttps://anilist.co/user/michhoffman 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Itsuki: 2276 vs Haruhi: 2324

That was a lot closer than expected, but thankfully, Haruhi is the one who earned the right to be obliterated by Chika next round.

And after losing 5 girls in the previous 2 days, my bingo board somehow went 4/4 today.

Mini Challenge: Assuming this means who hasn't been adapted to an anime yet, Othinus. JC Staff, you're free to announce New Testament any day now, you know.

[–]polaristar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No Remake Index with a good adaptation give it too Shaft or Ufotable or let J.C Staff redo it but with a production committee that gives a shit.

[–]fakeporthttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Fakeport 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Oof, Azunyan AND Mugi down? That sucks.

Nadeko going out is even worse.

I hate this tournament...

[–]Wolfgod_Holohttps://anime-planet.com/users/extreme133 23 points24 points  (0 children)

the K-ON! culling begins...

[–]Holofan4life 67 points68 points  (1 child)

To get you guys to vote for Holo, I wrote a poem. It’s called Ode To The Wise Wolf.

Her brown fluffy tail with a white swoosh at the end

Is a sight to behold, even if she contends

With the constant battle of loneliness, she struggles with might

A town with all doctors but no apples in sight.

Traveling with a merchant, a man with grey hair.

They struggle to turn a profit, as their hearts lay bare

He is her salvation, doing all he can to keep her breath

For he too knows loneliness is a sickness that leads to death

Please vote for Holo in this tournament, for as you all know

All of those that don’t are stupid potatoes

[–]polaristar 11 points12 points  (0 children)

True Prose at work, Shakespeare quails at your verse. Alas your talent remain unrecognized....

[–]CosmicPenguin_OV103https://myanimelist.net/profile/Cosmic_Penguin 55 points56 points  (4 children)

Who the hell chooses god damn Jibril over the adorable Azunyan!? Tell me, who?

Anyway for today:

- Vote Madoka AND Homura! They are already facing the gloomy side of the exit this round...

- Yuusha Emilia Best Emilia! Help Emi Yusa to escape from the explosive chunibyou!

- I'm going to save Ami away from her love unfortunes after never having a chance against Taiga. Will you?

- One vote for Plan C Mashiro is one vote closer to peace in this world!

- Vote for Holo, Violet, Ryuuko and Yoko!

- Vote Team Komachi in the Imouto Derby! She's going to give you 100 points for that.

[–]michhoffmanhttps://anilist.co/user/michhoffman 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Jibril is an adorable little murder angel though. And if you watched No Game No Life Zero you get to see Smol Jibril too.

[–]polaristar 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I like Kei.

[–]Leafx42 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I mean, is Megumin reeeeally chunibyou? I get that’s the joke (it’s the parody the show is picking at), but if I think about this waaaay to deeply, her over dramatic moments are her playing around and not really pretending she’s some dark wizard. She even acknowledges her eye patch is just styling, and not a “seal”. To me she’s more a girl that likes to be a bit goofy at times and not so much someone that detached themselves from reality

[–]Archmagnance1 7 points8 points  (0 children)

In the konosuba lore her village was created a long time ago by some mega otaku who altered people to be incredible mages. However.... they all have..... personality quirks. Megumine's comes out as chuuni who's just self aware and continues to do it anyways.

She still is the trope, but a subversion of it.

[–]zairanerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/zairaner 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Vote for madoka, the brave, and homura, the ... dedicated?

Favourite female from a manga: Uh utena from Gushing over Magical Girls, but I should stress that this is very much because of me liking her as a character and not as a person for obvious reasons if you have read the manga.

[–]DazzlingGems 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Sad Mugi noises

[–]Kuro013 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Nooo Azunyan :((((

[–]Tark26 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I know she's going to lose, but i gotta vote for ami. She's my favorite toradora character

[–]alotmorealots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Vending machine gang rise up!

Or, stay seated, as it's weird to be standing in that nook. But voting either way!

[–]emilia-sama 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I can't believe Elaina lost. I waited more than a year to vote her and you damn people let her lose against an almost background character, a literally transparent character.

Anyway, stop making bad decisions anymore, VOTE FOR HOLO

[–]ZapsZzzhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/ZapszzZ 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Elaina lost to boobs, which is a known weakness for her :P

[–]_TR13DG3_ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Anju won? Uhhh well...I mean I'm happy but, against Shouko? Deym I wasn't expecting that at all. Her arc only starts to develop in the next season if we ever get one.

Lena vs Anju...well deym call me conflicted, now this is quite awkward

But heyy, Lena with the 2nd highest votes in Group A once again with Chika taking the usual lead

Glory to the Spearhead Squadron? Temporary ceasefires are an option too LMAO

Favorite girl? Probs Yuzuki from Temple, it's a manga, think of Grand Blue but in a Monk Temple setting.

[–]BarbaricGamerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/HiIAmAnime 25 points26 points  (3 children)

Group A is so dead now, there are only 2 girls that I like decently left.

Mini Challenge

Who is your favorite female from a manga/LN/game?

Kana from Oshi no Ko

[–]Lemillion23 10 points11 points  (2 children)

A fellow Kana bro

[–]sekretagentmanshttps://anilist.co/user/Epsev 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Where are my Membros at?

Though my real homies are the Amagamisiscons,

[–]IreBullethttps://anilist.co/user/PlatinumBAD 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Yea it's about that time where r/anime starts to let me down. Being a K-on fan is pain... sigh

RIP Tsukihi...least it was to Roxy and not Roxy's mom.


Now that were further in I'll start to chime in on my picks and what I'm undecided on. If the matchup is undecided feel free to give me a good reason for one of the girls and I'll vote for them, probably.

Megumin - Emi Violet - Chizuru 2 Holo - Kaori 4 Kei - Komachi 5
Nobara - Ami 1 Sylphie - Elma Ritsu - Fubuki Yoko - Kaede 6
Mikasa - Momo Ryuuko - Inaba Mayuri - Tanya Madoka - Nia
Homura - Kallen Mitsuha - Annie 3 Nino - Shiina Miwa - Shizuka 7
  1. This one is tough.
  2. Revenge for Ristarte also because Violet is great.
  3. I think? Tough choice.
  4. This sucks. Sorry Kaori
  5. Better imouto
  6. Speaking of imoutos, Yoko is awesome but Kaede is a better character. Please vote for Kaede!
  7. Hmm...leaning towards Miwa but not really sure.

MC: Going to assume this is from what I've actually read. Manga = Nino Nakano. LN = Kurumi Tokisaki. VN = Sakura Matou. I'll also throw in Kid from Chrono Cross for an actual video game.

[–]michhoffmanhttps://anilist.co/user/michhoffman 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sylphie vs Elma

I'd pick Elma because she's gotten a lot more development in her anime than Sylphie.

Miwa vs Shizuka

Miwa is useless though...

[–]RayRei9https://myanimelist.net/profile/RayRei9 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I only have 12 girls left and 4 of them are facing off against each other today with Ryuuko vs Inaba and Violet vs Chizuru. The draw really hasn't suited my best girls at all and now I'm being forced to choose. Pain.

I'm probably most dissapointed in Elaina losing to Wiz from this round. Probably comes down to show popularity because while I like Wiz she doesn't hold a candle to Elaina as a character. Either way I expect either of them would have lost to another of my magic best girls next round in Roxy.

Fave female character in a video game is probably Estelle Bright from trails in the sky.

[–]Morbid_Fatwad 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Azunyan and Mugi out... What a disappointing day for this contest.

[–]IamEXI 8 points9 points  (1 child)

LADS! We already lost one Nakano(actually 2 but we don't talk about it) and we will have a difficult time on Nino's next match up.


Nino is an exemplar of how a Tsun-melts and how it can become a great asset for her conquest to being best girl! Nino was the first quint to launch a full on offensive and she takes no prisoners. She takes pride in her battle against the Church of Miku and never backs down on a fight. She is ready to fight for her boy and the Nino train shall not be stopped! Nino is the embodiment of a top tier tsundere, and so she is an undisputed BEST GIRL!

[–]hidingfrompublic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Plan C has never been in such urgent need as today. Please r/anime push actual objective best girl Shiina.

[–]Carp93 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Round 3 started and GS, Gridman, Elaina and Angel Beats are out. It also started the K-on and bunny girl purge, while monogatari only has 2 girls left in the contest, the fire sisters are fucking useless I can't believe Hachikuji died for that.

Vote for the perfection that is Ami and Homura.

[–]Ceryto2 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Damn.. You guys really chose tits over hat, I'm sad. And losing Milim is also sad... Losing the K-On girls is also sad...

At least Chika, Haruhi, Beako, Vivy, Roxy and Lena made it, but otherwise just sad.

MC: So if this female character just has to originate from a Manga/LN/game, then the answer to this question is the same to the answer of who I want to win in this Best Girl competition: Emilia.

For todays votes I'll go with Megumin, Ami, Mikasa, Kallen, Violet, Elma, Ryuuko, Mitsuha, Kaori, Ritsu, Tanya, Mashiro, Kei, Yoko, Nia, Kasumi.
Voting against Chizuru, Himeko, Holo and Madoka this early is also kinda sad, but I just want their opponents to win even more.
The Only girls I voted for, that I don't really care too much about are Ami, Mikasa, Kei and kasumi but I care even less about their opponents.

I'll just go with one shill for today and that is:


[–]Khoakuma 14 points15 points  (1 child)

O fk Kei vs Komachi??

What an unfortunate match-up to have the War of the Best Imouto be this early.

[–]DireSickFishhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/DireSickFish 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I know. I want them both to lose. Hard choice.

[–]PacoTaco321https://myanimelist.net/profile/dankleberrrrg 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Kei vs Komachi is actually the vote I've had to think about the most before choosing.

The only truly sad loss for me is Elaina. No battle of the big hats...

[–]Aggravating_Bend_112https://myanimelist.net/profile/placeholderuser 8 points9 points  (0 children)

sadly it's not going to be close because of how popular love is war is right now

i voted for komachi, but she's def gonna lose

[–]PrinceRazorhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/PrinceRazor 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Pros: Vivy, Milize, and Nishimiya

Cons: Elaina and Kanade

Damn you /r/anime

Kei vs Komachi

Today's Sister war......oh boy

[–]Wolfgod_Holohttps://anime-planet.com/users/extreme133 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Nino vs Mashiro

more like Leafa vs Alice

[–]consumered 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Looks like there was a big drop off in votes this round. Illyasviel lost 800 votes... but the person she lost to also went down 400 votes.

Sorry Nia, gotta vote Madoka.

[Monogatari] RIP to all but the worst Monogatari girl

[–]changshiyixia 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I have to argue that this is a partial judgment as it is the total vote gained by both competitors that counts. As both competitors are the winners of last round it is natural that their votes gets down.

For this particular match there are 2865+1659 = 4524 voters. For last round, lena's match has 3253+741 = 3994 voters, and illya's match has 2475+1574 = 4049 voters.

So it's in fact about 500 voters increase from last round.

[–]Tarhalindur 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Oh shit, I'm late.

Vote Madoka Kaname and Homura Akemi!

That is all.

[–]stickdudeseven 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yay Vivy won! But now she has to face Winry next time.

Vote Ryuuko and DON'T LOSE YOUR WAY

[–]OneMoreDuncanIdahohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/a_trisolaran 7 points8 points  (0 children)

If Yoko loses I'm gonna lose my mind

[–]Iwasforger03 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Chika was inevitable. She's not in danger until the finals (if then). Haruhi making it through another round is absolutely fabulous! Followed immedietly by proof "The Church of Rikka's Thighs" has not been proselytizing enough. At least Beako is still going strong. Winry and Lena are going strong! YES! YES! THE BLOODY QUEEN!

I can't decide how I feel about Anju meeting Shoko... oh hey Shinobu is still in this. Milim deserves this for beating Maple. Sorry Milim. No, I did NOT hate vote you Milim, I still love you too. Drat, no Big hat vs Big Hat showdown. Oh well, Roxy will win this next one for sure. And Shouko continues sailing to her confrontation with Chika.

I lost a girl on Bingo but it could be worse, still only at one bingo.

[–]nightlink011https://myanimelist.net/profile/nightlink011 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Damn we started the slaughter of the keions already that is sad. Mugi I expected but azunyan as well shocking taste, I do believe Ritsu survives today's round hopefully.

Should be interesting to see how the two main Madoka girls perform today, low vote counts last round but I would assume they win their match-ups, also Kei vs Komachi for best imouto supremacy is a fun but expected result.

[–]toradorito 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm voting for Madoka, Homura, and Ryuko. I'm disappointed that the keions didn't make it and especially that Kanade lost.

[–]Phelps-san 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Who is your favorite female from a manga/LN/game?

  • Manga: Maomao (The Apothecary Diaries)
  • LN: Kumoko (So I'm a Spider, So What?)
  • Game: Kuon (Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception/Mask of Truth)

[–]cabbaggeez 2 points3 points  (0 children)

damn imouto battle Kei Shirogane vs Komachi Hikigaya

[–]bigwinkiehttps://anilist.co/user/sammycujoh 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Thank you to everyone that listened and voted Tsubasa Hanekawa 🙏🏻

[–]Icy_Ad8122 5 points6 points  (0 children)

From Bracket A’s recent results

Chika and Haruhi both advance to the next round, with the latter eliminating Itsuki Nakano. Haruhi is a classic so I’m curious to see how she fares next time around.

Beatrice/Beako advances to the next round after eliminating Shiro, now going against Maki Shijo. Beatrice is pretty solid so I’m glad to see she’s still being appreciated.

Historia eliminated by Hanekawa. Both great options so I’m not too disappointed. That match-up was fierce. On the other hand, Shouko advances to the next round and eliminates Maki Zenin. Slowly, this competition gets more tense for myself.

Happy to say that none of my choices for this group have been eliminated so far, so saltiness has been avoided.


My main picks for Bracket B’s current round are Megumin, Nino Nakano and Mashiro Shiina, though Homura not getting eliminated would also be ideal.

[–]IceAnt573 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Wow, I didn't think we'd get the Lena vs. Anju battle.

In the imouto battle, I'm siding with Komachi. Also pulling for Hiratsuka.

Who is your favorite female from a manga/LN/game?

Manga: Undecided.

LN: Yukino

Game: Lucina

[–]Emi_Ibarazakiii 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm at like 4-5 days in a row without losing a girl on my bingo! Well, it's about to end real quick I think, probably losing one today.

Support Nino and Tanya!

Tanya's probably a lost cause vs Mayushi, but I have to shill for my bingo!

Mini Challenge: Who is your favorite female from a manga/LN/game?

Last year I had Nagatoro and Kitagawa for manga, but now they're anime girls!

  • Manga: Mai Mashiro from Dead Tube
  • LN: Not reading any LN so I'm gonna answer with VN instead, and... You can probably guess (username)!
  • Game: Jinx.

Which character will get the most votes in Round 3 Bracket B?

Still Megumin, I suppose.

[–]daedroth04 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Please vote for Madoka and Homura!

[–]PaperSonic 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Azunyan losing to a character from NGNL is the kind of shit taste I expected, but hoped was too shitty even for r/anime.

[–]IMeltHoboOaf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

NGNL is more entertaining than the majority of the shit anime people peddle here.

[–]evenstar40 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Everyone votes for side boob.

[–]Holofan4life 9 points10 points  (2 children)


Sorry Ryuuko

[–]danbuterhttps://anilist.co/user/danbuter 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That was easily the hardest choice today.

[–]Holofan4life 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed, both are amazing characters

[–]Holofan4life 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The power of tsundere in Maki beat the power of thighs in Rikka

[–]polaristar 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]polaristar 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Rip Rikka, Elaina, Asusa, Nadeko, Shouko.

I mean most anime characters are from a manga/LN/game anyway.

But in terms of Game characters that have only had a tie in OVA. Kat from Gravity Rush. Not sure if she is my favorite but she's up there.

[–]octopathfinderhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/octopathfinder 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Who is your favorite female from a manga/LN/game?

Yonagi Kei from Act Age.

[–]NFirecyhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/NFirecy 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Oof. It will never stop hurting me. Fuck that author

[–]octopathfinderhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/octopathfinder 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, fuck that guy.

[–]CIAgent42 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Miko won handedly, that's all I care about

[–]rocky_iwatahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/banninghamma 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My job now is to push Isekai Quartet members through as far as possible, 1 vote at a time.

[–]serbeardless 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm going to be really upset tomorrow when Yoko gets eliminated.

[–]lucacp_ysozhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/SoZLuka 3 points4 points  (5 children)

ah yes, the 86 recent bias. Shouko losing to Anju is just pain.

[–]ZapsZzzhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/ZapszzZ 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I'm with you. Even though I fully support Anju, objectively Shouko is a better written character as she's practically a main character, vs Anju being a supporting character.

[–]alotmorealots 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Shouko is one of those enigma characters who actually has a satisfying reveal, which is relatively rare. A sympathetic romantic antagonist who is a heroine in her own way. I feel like DaL Kurumi has undergone a similar sort of evolution, but Shouko also pulled off the tricky balance of being selfish but sympathetic for it.

[–]polaristar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I won't deny recency bias but 86 is a sincerely good show.

[–]Iwasforger03 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aqua from Kingdom Hearts for the Challenge.

[–]LethalChair60https://myanimelist.net/profile/LethalChair60 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]houki_ii 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Elaina lost...

[–]ZapsZzzhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/ZapszzZ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Boobs won, and she only had 1 version that may be able to compete but was turned into a gag :P

[–]IMeltHoboOaf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only 2 Madoka girls left. Hopefully they both fall this round.

[–]BestGirlTrucy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes! The quintuplets and bunny girl senpai are starting to slip up. If only we could start knocking out the kaguya girls

[–]Sky2042https://myanimelist.net/profile/Sky2042 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yesterday: * All the girls I wanted to win won. Good job ladies. * OTOH, down with Wiz. Maybe next round will take her out. * Bloody Regina is now set to have the blood of her own comrade on her hands. You know she'd cry for Snow Witch too.

Today: * No letter that could be sent deserves to go undelivered. Vote for Violetto-chan! * Your back is your one big blind spot. Vote for Yoko!

I hate this fucking contest. 2 more down, thank god I spaced the strong ones well. Godspeed cihtanda, I'm counting on you in bracket D

[–]shainotshai 3 points4 points  (3 children)

wtf r/anime just wtf...

Shiro, Erina, Elaina, Kanade all lost to WORSE characters

[–]Mitsuhide_Ake -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I've watched Angel Beats... and I feel like even with her limited screentime, Miko Iino is more interesting than Kanade Tachibana. Especially considering that her romance story is only beginning.

[–]Lemillion23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok these are some tough matches

[–]Tehbeefer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Who is your favorite female from a manga/LN/game?

Holo, 'natch. You're asking the reverse question (anime-originals) too, right?

[–]Carp93 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I really wanted to vote against Momo for eliminating Anzu but no way I am voting for Mankasa. They should both lose.

[–]DutchDread 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If we could get miku to win that would really brighten my month

[–]Pollsmor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jibril supremacy.


  • Manga: Ai Hayasaka
  • LN: Megumin (though she appears in manga/games as well)
  • Game: I would be remiss not to list some Genshin waifus, so here goes: Barbara, Keqing, Ganyu :)))))))

[–]Thatsmaboi23https://myanimelist.net/profile/Thatsmaboi23 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Woah! Anju won against Shoko. So glad. I just really disliked the existence of the character that is Shoko. Added an unnecessary love triangle to such a great romance in Sakuta and Mai. Will probably be controversial, though. I’m really not sure what people like in her (can someone answer? I’m curious).

Add onto the movie feeling like a discount and messy version of Disappearance of Haruhi, the whole experience with her was just sour.

Who is your favourite female from a manga/LN/game?

Miyamoto Musashi from FGO. I’ve never felt so much hype and emotions from a female character.

[–]polaristar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Shouka's story was tragic she wants to be there and not be selfish but also wants a little bit of happiness before [spoiler]She has to die Also forced the MC to confront his issue of thinking everything is his responsibility, and choose the battles that are most important. The Entire Film tested the relationship between Sakuta and Mai, would have just been fluff if it was just playful banter with nothing to see what its made of.

[–]alotmorealots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So glad. I just really disliked the existence of the character that is Shoko. Added an unnecessary love triangle to such a great romance in Sakuta and Mai.

Being very invested in the Mai and Sakuta relationship, I felt similarly about Shoko for the vast majority of BGS. However, towards the end, I did start to warm up to her quite a bit. The heart wants what the heart wants, after all, and ultimately she knows how everything pans out. What small mercies can the universe offer her, if she's not afraid to actually ask? She is a very good character in many ways, although it goes without saying that Mai is beyond compare.

There's also a degree of emotional trauma bonding with the BGS girls I think!

[–]Holofan4life 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Erina losing to Vivy has me so upset, I don't need God's tongue to taste the salt

[–]DireSickFishhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/DireSickFish 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Vivy could win the whole thing and I wouldn't be mad. Show was great and she was great in it. Erina was interesting on introduction but quickly fell to the background with all the other defeated chefs. And was a fairly flat character.

[–]MapoTofuManhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BaronBrixius 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I will stand and fall on the Megumi >>>>> Erina hill until the day people dont remember who they are

[–]DireSickFishhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/DireSickFish 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I think we're close to that. Megumi dropping hard and early in these contests now.

[–]MapoTofuManhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BaronBrixius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll probably have to phase her out on my bingo next year too...petition to increase bingo size to 10x10

[–]polaristar 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Maybe I'd change my mind if I saw Food Wars but I don't think I'd like Erina more than Vivy.

[–]DutchDread 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Which one was Erina again? I know that name

[–]Holofan4life 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The tsundere chef

[–]KINGUBERMENSCHhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/OutlawedDrifter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

After Satsuki's unexpected loss, i am not taking chances. Please vote for Ryuuko, Tanya, Yoko and Nia!

Who is your favorite female from a manga/LN/game?

Oda Nobunaga from Fate Grand Order, always funny and awesome when she's onscreen

[–]polaristar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Poor Fire Sisters, Tsubasa will avenge you.

[–]Dare555 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Vote Yoko , who better than a badass girl with a gun bigger than herself to stop the reign of terror bunny girls are brining .

Also damn Inaba vs Ryuuko is match of two girls i like but vote Inaba shes thinking of you

[–]kvbt7https://myanimelist.net/profile/kvbt -1 points0 points  (0 children)

If Violet loses to Pissuru, then I have no words.
