Anime Babes 2.0 Revised Ruleset Nominations

Post by Piero on Fri 24 Jun 2011 - 20:37

This is an attempt to relaunch my Anime Babes 2.0 Tournament under a new nomination ruleset, since the old ruleset wasn’t producing adequate results in terms of either number of nominations or quality of nominations. I'm hoping the new rules will produce better results, I'd like to get this tournament going this summer.

The biggest rule change is that nominations no longer need to be seconded, however they will need to pass my quality control check. This means I expect people to actually put some work into these profiles. Don’t expect to pass if you just copy/paste some text from Wikipedia and use whatever random picture showed up first on a google image search.

Nominations from the previous nomination thread were carried over at my discretion. A list of who did and did not make the cut is in my next post. I included what needed to be done for profiles to make the cut for most of the rejected profiles.

Nomination Standards

Text


Descriptions should be a minimum of one short paragraph and a maximum of one long or two short paragraphs. Try to be selective about what you say –not everything about a character is going to be equally important, so concentrate on the important things. Also try to avoid whitewashing a character –while these profiles are obviously going to concentrate a lot on the positive aspects of a character, if they have an obvious personality flaw then is should probably be mentioned. Lastly, try to avoid excessively subjective statements. While even a statement like “she is kind and caring” is subjective, there’s a big difference between that statement and one that says “this character is way better than that other stupid character from the same series.” (I may cut a bit of slack on this one for the carried-over nominations.) Also try to avoid overly personal statements (you can tell us that you personally like the character in the tournament itself).

Pictures

Profiles should contain one picture of no more than about 640x480 (I’m a bit flexible about this since not all pictures have a 4:3 width to height ratio, but it gives an idea of the range I’m looking for). While excessively large pictures are not encouraged, neither are really small ones. Remember even a basic picture editing program like paint can resize an image.

Profiles can contain links to up to four additional pictures of similar size to the first. Again these are to be linked to, not displayed on the same page.

Pictures for this tournament should be relatively clean. For the most part anything much racier than a typical swimsuit pic should be marked with a NSFW tag. And that tag isn’t an excuse to post any outright porn.

Official art of a character is generally much preferable to fan art. I prefer to see the characters in a that closely resembles how they actually appear in the series they’re part of.

Minitokyo is an excellent website for finding character art for this kind of tournament as it contains a lot of scans of character art from anime magazines. You’ll need to sign up for an account in order to download full size pictures from there. With a little cropping and resizing these magazines scans can often produce excellent images for a tournament like this. The scans section of animepaper might also be worth a look. And don’t forget that you can take screenshots from the series itself.

There are many free image hosting services available that you can easily upload pictures to. I generally use image shack.

Here is a list of the characters that were approved and carried over from the last nomination thread, in some cases with minor tweaks.

Ami Kawashima -Toradora
Ami/Sailor Mercury -Sailor Moon
Arcueid Brunstud –Tsukihime
Azaka Kokutou -Kara no Kyoukai
Charlotte Dunois –Infinite Stratos
Chie Isurugi -Kira Kira
Eris -Asobi ni Ikuyo!
Fate T. Harlaown -Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Strikers
Hitagi Senjougahara -Bakemonogatari
Kaname Chidori -Full Metal Panic
Lisa Hayes -Robotech
Lucy -Elfen Lied
Lum -Urusei Yatsura
Mai Tokiha -Mai-HiME
Matsuri Shihou -Sola
Midori Sugiura -Mai-HiME
Misato Katsuragi -Neon Genesis Evangelion
Natsuki Kuga -Mai-HiME
Rin Tohsakha -Fate/Stay Night
Saber -Fate/Stay Night
Saeko Bushijima -High School of the Dead
Sakura Matou -Fate/Stay Night
Sheryl Nome -Macross Frontier
Sinon Kouzuki –Starship Operators
Sylia Stingray -Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040
Teletha "Tessa" Testarossa -Full Metal Panic
Tsubasa Hanekawa -Bakemonogatari
Tsugumi Komachi -Ever 17
Urd -Ah! My Goddess

Here are a list of nominations that didn’t make the cut in their current form and what needs to be done to fix them:

Dhianelia –Too shot, needs better art.
Mireielle –Needs a longer description and some better pics.
Balalaika –Needs a better picture.
Riza Hawkeye–Needs a new main picture.
Rika –Get a better picture. A better general description is also advised.

Special Cases

Shiki and Canaan –Going by what I know of Canaan and what I’ve been told of Shiki, I seriously question whether these two belong in this tournament (and I’m a fan of one of the characters in question). I’m not so sure Balalaika should be in it either, but since she actually got seconded in the other nomination thread I’ll allow her if she gets a better image. I will allow these two as well if I find people expressing a significant degree of support for them, but for now they are not approved.

I still need to make a decision as to what to do with Asagami Fujino.

Approved carry over from previous nomination thread.

A teenage girl who is being targeted by various shadowy organisations because of her status as one of the so called “whispered.” While a kind and caring person at heart, she has adopted something of a tough lady attitude due to her experiences in middle school (her mother died of cancer and she was bullied to the point of wanting to commit suicide because she didn’t fit in after several years overseas). She’s a great believer in the idea that anger is more useful than despair and is known for having a zero-bs attitude (and a violent temper). It may in part be the strength she gained from overcoming her past issues that allows her to deal with the daily reality of being a target for abduction and being protected by a socially inept teenage mercenary who has no idea how to act in civilian society (she is determined to beat some sense into him –literally, if need be). Courage and determination are some of her more admirable traits. Here’s Full Metal Panic’s Kaname Chidori.

*Approved carry over from previous nomination thread. Some chances made to meet new standards.

A pink-haired, horned mutant that slaughters people nonchalantly with pseudo-telekintic powers. You will sympathize. Though she starts off the anime completely naked in a good example of fan disservice, she puts some clothes on later. Luckily, she manages to avoid a ridiculous cup size and other generic hotness traits and is genuinely attractive. Unfortunately for crazy otaku suitors, she's already taken by Kohta, whom she wishes only to apologize to for the horrible deeds she did to him. Plus, she's a B+ Zettai Ryouiki. Here's Lucy, from Elfen Lied.



This one's actually of her cuter Nyu personality, but oh well. [Mildly NSFW]

*Approved carry over from previous nomination thread. * Minor changes made to remove a statement I felt was too much in the realm of personal opinion.

She is the daughter of a space invader of an "oni" race~cha. She lost a contest to eternal letch Ataru, and as a result, the earth was saved, but Ataru was not as she now was to become his wife~cha. She is very jealous of when her "da'ling" starts looking at other girls, giving a quick electrical volt to the hapless Ataru~cha. Here's Lum from Urusei Yatsura.

*Approved carry over from previous nomination thread*

A high school girl attending the prestigious Fuuka Academy on scholarship along with the sickly younger brother she is responsible for taking care of. She is an immensely kind and caring person with a seemingly cheerful disposition. However, she often uses her smiles to hide her problems from others, especially her younger brother. This is probably due to the responsibilities she has had to take on after her parent’s deaths. She is exceptionally fond of karaoke, and somewhat fond of teasing her younger roommate (whom she practically treats like her little sister). Here’s Mai-HiME’s Mai Tokiha.

*Approved carry over from previous nomination thread*

Belldandy’s half-divine, half-demonic elder half sister. A complex and multi-faceted character, the eldest of the three Norns is both a wise, caring elder sister and a self-styled love goddess who is irritable, impulsive, meddlesome, easily bored, and in possession of a mischievious streak about a mile wide. She is known for her love of sake (in fact, it is her back up energy source when she’s unable to receive energy from Yggdrasil) and her tendency to zap people who piss her off. She has spent a considerable length of the series gradually coming to terms with her half-demon heritage. Here’s Ah! My Goddess’ Urd.

Whatever else one can say about Urd, she's certainly proud or her looks.
She also has quite a mischievious streak.

She is the combat coordination for NERVE guiding the pilots against the angels. She is a tough woman on duty but knows how to relax and have fun off duty. She typicaly enjoys a breakfast that would destroy a normal persons liver and her driving is reckless at best. Here's Misato Katsuragi from Neon Genesis Evangelion.

A biker girl who is fighting to avenge her mother’s death. On the surface, she seems like quite the badass, but she has serious issues trusting other people enough to allow them to get close. She therefore tends to forcibly keep her distance from people. Because of this, her social skills aren’t so great, and her attempts to project an aloof, in control image are thwarted by the fact that she’s actually quite irritable and adorably easy to embarrass. She also likes cute puppies and for some odd reason seems to collect underwear despite the fact that she seems to be one of the biggest prudes in the series (unfortunately for her, the series writers think putting her in compromising situations is hilarious). Here’s Mai-HiME’s Natsuki Kuga.

A seemingly average girl that likes to hang out at the main character's, Shiro's, house, and generally spends her time cooking there, becoming nearly as good a cook as Shiro. She doesn't get much attention unless you play the Heaven's Feel route of the game, where she is the main female character and love interest. At fisrt she is a typical shy girl with a crush on Shiro, but, again in Heaven's Feel, she gets major character development, becoming much less shy (in several ways, If Ya Know What I Mean) and the player (reader?) learns of her... unpleasant backstory. Here's Fate/Stay Night's Sakura Matou.

*Approved carry over from previous nomination thread. Slightly tweaked.*

The school idol and major league tsundere of Fate/Stay Night, she manages to be badass and hot. With or without magic. She is Shiro's rival for some of the visual novel, then his ally, or even his lover depending on the route. She's famous for her short skirt and long stockings, herself being the ultimate example of the zettai ryouiki fetish. Though her "tsun" side is most prominent, she sometimes shows her "dere" side, usually around Shiro, and she's actually quite sweet. However, she's likely to turn back to her usual mean self after her niceness is mentioned. But in the end, hey. Short skirt? Long stockings? Twintails? Hell YES. Here's Fate/Stay Night's ever moody Rin Tohsaka.

The girl of the series that usually gets the most attention, she often gets random breaks in the narrative to describe how beautiful she is, just like the other two girls. She is the Servant of Shiro, and fights for him in the Holy Grail War, despite Shiro not wanting her to. Her most prominant physical feature is her incredible ahoge, which has been used by fans has such things as a prehensile weapon and a helicopter rotor. She doesn't view herself as very feminine, especially compared to Rin, leading to her merely shrugging off (most of) the incidents where Shiro sees her naked. Here's Fate/Stay Night's knightly Saber.

*Approved carryover from previous nomination thread.*

A twenty-four year old university student who keeps trying to claim she’s seventeen despite working on a thesis. Initially introduced as a waitress at a local restaurant, she soon moves on to filling in for an injured Fuuka Academy history teacher. She is very fond of partying and has a flair for the dramatic –on one occasion, she volunteered to fill in for a sick Home Education teacher’s remedial session and turned it into an Iron Chef style competition (with disastrous results). After becoming a HiME, she decides to act like a stereotypical magical girl for fun, on one occasion even going so far as to change into a frilly waitress’ uniform before going into battle. Despite her generally wild and carefree attitude, she is capable of getting serious when the situation calls for it, and in fact has been shown to be able to handle extreme stress better than any of the younger HiME. She is also surprisingly sharp, as she was shown picking up on a student’s attempt to fake being sick almost immediately. Her attempt to get back into university after being kicked out (of which her thesis is a part) may have something to do with a crush she has on one of her professors, who appears to be a Japanese version of Indiana Jones. Here’s Mai-HiME’s Midori Sugiura.

A former dark magical girl who fought for possession of a set of powerful magical artifacts on behalf of her “mother.” She was created by a powerful mage who was trying to clone her dead daughter, but was rejected by her creator because she was not seen as being a perfect copy of her original. She was eventually “befriended” by magical girl Nanoha Takamachi and adopted by Lindy Harlaown, an officer in the Time Space Administration Bureau (TSAB). Now an adult, she has served the TSAB as an Enforcer and as a squad leader in the special operations unit known as Mobile Section Six. She seems to have a soft spot for children she encounters during her work, particularly those who were created artificially like she was. Here’s Fate T. Harlaown from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Strikers.

The True Ancestor of vampires, she was sent to Misaki city to hunt down and destroy the vampire known as Roa. She meets Shiki Tohno, an unassuming high school student, and is promptly dissected into seventeen pieces by him. She's alright the next day, and goes in search of him. When he finds her, she is happily awaiting him, telling him that he needs to make up for killing her. The two then fight vampires together, and she learns all about modern society, all the while being extraordinarily cute yet sometimes unnervingly evil. She's Arcueid Brunestud of Tsukihime.



They hate each other. Sometimes.

Don't be ridiculous! Dead people can't be alive!

Living in Tokyo, she goes to the easygoing Christian school Oubi Academy. She failed a grade due to family problems, and now is repeating her third year, putting her in the same grade as her childhood friend Shikanosuke Maejima. They and two girls they meet start up a punk rock band, and perform at the school festival, with her playing the drums. After a huge success there, they go on tour, and she drives their crappy van. She gradually becomes closer to Shikanosuke, and the two go on several adventures together, including being given a gun by a strange girl, then rescuing the same girl from a friendly cult for her yakuza family, all the while getting mad at Shikanosuke at times for his pervertedness and odd style, though still falling in love with him at the end. She's Chie Isurugi of Kira Kira. Rock and roll!!



One moment later, she gets ice cream spilled on her face.

Her band outfit is pretty awesome.

Ami/Sailor Mercury from Sailor Moon
Highly intelligent with a rumored IQ of 300, she can transform into Sailor Mercury, acquiring power over all phases of water. Ami's shy exterior masks a passion for knowledge and for taking care of the people around her. She hopes to become a doctor one day, like her mother, and tends to be the practical one in the group. Secretly, she is also a fan of pop culture and romance novels, and becomes embarrassed whenever this is pointed out.



I guess, for keeping with the swimsuit trend...

Nice close up of her face

An immortal yaka – one vulnerable to sunlight, but with no need to drink blood – who likes to wear kneesocks. While she’s generally content to keep to herself, she possesses a lot of charm and a playful nature one wouldn’t expect from someone her age, and she’s not afraid to use it to flirt. This does, of course, make her the mother of all cougars since most guys who look her age are probably the square root of it, but what’s an immortal to do? She’s also fantastically agile. Here’s Sola’s Matsuri Shihou.

Winking Matsuri is even hotter than normal Matsuri.

Many tsundere in anime are very high strung. This girl isn’t one of those tsunderes. Her tsun side is literally cold - and all the hotter as a result. If you’re into that kind of thing. While she is standoffish, she is also capable of falling in love and acting sweet, although she needs a chance to demonstrate her sharp tongue every now and then. Has few qualms about fetishes or being seen naked by the guy she likes. Be forewarned she is highly aggressive when provoked and likes sharp objects. Here’s Bakemonogatari’s Hitagi Senjougahara.

Proceed with caution.
You might not want to be too much of a naught boy - or girl - around Hitagi.

A bookish class president with an immense skill for memorization, this girl effortlessly combines the hot librarian and schoolgirl looks. But the icing on the cake is the fact that she’s been possessed by a playful (albeit highly destructive) cat spirit that causes her to transform into a white haired bombshell of a catgirl when stressed. Under the right circumstances, she may simultaneously have her cat ears and glasses, resulting in lethal moe levels. Here’s Bakemonogatari’s Tsubasa Hanekawa.

Nekomimi mode: it's not just for cuteness anymore.

A Cattian scout pilot whose appearance on earth culminated in Earth’s first “official” contact with aliens, this alien catgirl has an amazing body, and her Cattian flight suit shows it off. Possessing the playfulness one might expect from a catgirl, this catgirl has a tendency to research Earth’s culture by using fetish magazines, resulting in some pretty interesting attempts to demonstrate cultural knowledge. Here’s Asobi no Ikuyo’s Eris.


Eris and a fellow Catian demonstrate what makes Cattians so frakking hot.

*Approved carry over from previous nomination thread*

A singer visiting the Frontier fleet from one of its sister colony fleets. Nicknamed the Galactic Fairy, she is strong willed, talented, somewhat haughty, and extremely confident. She expects a lot from the people who work with her but also expects a lot from herself. She refuses to settle for “good enough” and always goes all out when she's performing on stage. Despite being very passionate about her work she's eager to relax and have a little fun when a good opportunity presents itself. She enjoys incognito jaunts and is particularly playful in the presence of kabuki actor turned fighter pilot Alto Saotome, teasing him mercilessly and taking a nearly childlike delight in the sights he shows her during a tour of his home fleet. She also develops a strong friendship with one of her fans, an aspiring singer whom she provides with advice and morale support even as the younger girl starts to grow into her professional and romantic rival. A personal betrayal, issues with her health, her protege's rise to prominence and the shadows cast by major events eventually combine to push her out of the spotlight and into a state of depression and despair, but she regains her courage when she decides to sing to a group of terrified civilians who are trapped in an evacuation shelter with her during the siege of Island One. She eventually becomes a symbol of hope for the Frontier fleet during its darkest hours and decides to do everything in her power to help its people –even if that means driving herself into the ground in the process. Here’s Macross Frontier’s Sheryl Nome.



Sheryl has a wide variety of stage outfits, some of which only show up in promotional and artbook art. Incidentally that nice figure of hers is all natural. Apparently that's a major selling point when you come from a colony fleet where cybernetics are not only legal, but commonplace.
Another of her outfits. This one doesn't really suit her personality very well but it does show of how versatile she is with the looks she can pull off.
Sheryl wearing a yukata and a killer smile. For the record, her hair colour is officially "strawberry blonde."
The requisite swimsuit shot. The other girl in the picture is her friend/protege/romantic rival Ranka Lee.

*Approved carry over from previous nomination thread*

The eldest among those trapped in the underwater theme park LeMU after a disaster, this girl is by far the most world weary and cynical of the six survivors. However, she is a useful ally, as she is immensely strong for her size. While initially cold and even vicious or violent towards others with the exception of children and small animals, she can be quite sweet if treated with proper care and respect, her aloofness giving way to a playful, teasing nature. Here’s Ever 17: The Out of Infinity’s Tsugumi Komachi:

Tsugumi in a kimono.
And Tsugumi in her typical clothing.

*Approved carry over from previous nomination thread*

A member of Kibi’s 73rd graduating class of cadets who was taking part in a practicum aboard the battleship Amaterasu when her home planet was attacked by the Henrietta Alliance and quickly surrendered. She attempted to be the voice of sanity when some of her fellow cadets suggested starting a rebellion with the Amaterasu and funding it by selling rights to the action to an earth-based TV network, but ended up getting dragged along anyway and given the role of Executive Officer. She is a genius at strategy and has an excellent memory, but can be rather dense when it comes to other things. One of the engineering staff once remarked that she was probably the only person on the ship who was unaware of the fact that the Chief Engineer was interested in her. Here’s Sinon Kouzuki from Starship Operators.

*Approved carry over from previous nomination threads.* Pictures changed with premission of nominator due to favoring official art over unofficial.

As the illegitimate daughter of a French IS magnate, this girl was forced to crossdress as a boy in order to get close to and spy on the world's only male IS candidate. However, she eventually used her immunity from persecution as France's national candidate to nullify her father's blackmail, proceeding to reveal herself as quite the beauty. Unlike most "action girl" types, she's very sweet natured, playful, and elegent, she just happens to be clever and competitive as well, piloting a second generation IS against third and fourth generation units in competition with surprising effectiveness. Least one forget, she is indeed French... and she can leave one wondering just how someone so soft spoken can be so good at getting what she wants. Here's Infinite Stratos' Charlotte Dunois.

Carry overs are done, with a total of twenty-four characters making the cut with or without minor tweaks (note one of the carry overs is listed later because the person re-submitted it). New nominations are now open. Feel free to ask questions about the new format. Also if someone wants me to make a change to a profile that was carried over, contact me via PM.

*Approved Carry Over from previous nomination thread* Main picture replaced with a cropped version of an image the original nominator sent me.

The stunningly attractive model transfer student, she appears to be a ditzy airhead and stereotypical rich girl, acting nice towards most other people. This image is shattered when she reveals her true personality of an arrogant and mean girl, and the main characters help her out with a creepy stalker. Once that's dealt with, she cools down and becomes more understanding and caring, even going as far as helping out the main characters on some occasions. After that, she tries pursuing the male lead, but fails (losing to a certain entry in the Tsundere Tournament). She's Ami Kawashima of Toradora!



She wears bikinis a lot.

The younger sister of Mikiya Kokutou, who also happens to have a rather... unhealthy... attraction to him, because of this, she had difficultly getting along with Shiki Ryougi. She is an apprentice of her brother's employer, Aozaki Touko and is skilled in the use of fire-based magic, and is also capable in unarmed combat. Presenting Kara no Kyoukai's Azaka Kokutou.



The links worked for me:

Ryougi x Azaka: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

NSFW: Azaka x Fujino.

Edit: tested links after I copy-pasted them, worked fine on my computer. Puzzled

Also, as per Canaan, Shiki, and Fujino, are you rejecting them due to lack of fanservice, personality, dark backstory, serious nature, or some combination of the above?

With Shiki I'm kind of going by what I've been told by Five_X since I'm not very familiar with the character, if you've got arguments in favor of including her I'm willing to listen. With Canaan... well, she's both rather androgynous and rather childlike in terms of personality, hence why I don't think of her as being particularly suitable for this tournament. Her nemesis Alphard would probably qualify though.

As for Fujino, I'm in a bit of an awkward position with her because while there are technically no rules she breaks, I am not keen on including a character with such an incredibly unpleasant backstory. There are other characters in this tournament who don't have entirely pleasant backstories but nothing of that calibre. I don't think it would go over well.

As for the secondary pics, the first one did actually work and I can edit to include it if it's what you want (though the two girls in the pic look awfully similar, which I think is less than ideal). The other two pics didn't work when I tried them earlier. They seem to be now but fact that they're from Sankaku Complex is a bit of a problem considering the kind of advertisements and such that show up on that website.

Well, I suppose Canaan, Shiki, and Fujino are out then. Now that I think about it, I always thought Fujino had more of a dark moe appeal to me, like is said with the rain pic, you just want to let her in out of the rain and give her a hug.... And as per Canaan and Shiki, I don't know, I just like strong female leads.

And as per the pics, I'll find some new ones for Azaka. And yeah... Sankaku Complex can be like that...

Finally, what exactly is wrong with Saeko's pic? I didn't think it's any larger than Azaka's

Well actually, Azaka's pic violates the image size rule as well, I just didn't notice... the rule is that pics should be no larger than about 640x480. Remember these profiles are going to be posted in batches of four in the actual tournament. Small pics help keep things manageable.

If you download an image you can often crop or resize it to about 640x480, then upload it to an image hosting service. I usually use imageshack, which is free, but some other members use other image hosting services.

*Approved with slight edits for format standardization.*

She is seen at first as the stern non-nonsense officer serving on the SDF-1, but she quickly catches the eye of Rick Hunter and vies against Minmei, the new idol on the SDF-1, for Rick's heart. She is both stern & professional, while nonetheless having far more hear then her idol antagonist. Deeply affected by her military family and father, she perseveres while still retaining her femininity. Tough, but vulnerable, she is the type of babe you'd be proud to be with. Here's Robotech's Lisa Hayes.



Alternate picture.

*Approved, but substituted CI's longer description from the original nomination thread.*


The owner of the Silky Doll clothing store and the secret leader of the Knight Sabers. Her father created the artificaly intellegent boomers the designs were later taken mass produced by the Genom coorporation. She created and funds the knight sabers organization to fight against Genom and any rouge boomers that threaten the city of Mega tokyo. She is cool under pressure coming across as a bit of an ice queen at times rarely loosing her composure. Here's Sylia Stingray from Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040.

*Approved with some small modifications.* I made a small format change and cut a few things that I didn't feel should be in the profile. Feel free to say that she's your favorite character in voting but please don't state that in the nomination itself, okay? I moved the bits I cut into a spoiler tag so you wouldn't lose them.



A high school senior and president of the school's kendo club, come the zombie apocalypse, she proves herself extremely skilled at close combat with a bokken and later a katana. Calm and collected with a sense of pride in her skills, Saeko is among the most reliable of the group. Everyone can count on her combat skills to pull them through a crisis. Not much is known about her family except for her father who had traveled abroad on a self-defense conference before the advent of the Outbreak.Four years prior to the story, an assailant attacked Saeko. Armed with her bokken, she easily disposed of him, breaking several of his bones before the police came, this revealed a sadistic tendency which she continually struggles with, though she later learns to accept this dark thread of her personality. Here's Saeko Busujima from High School of the Dead.

NSFW: If her sword doesn't kill you, the nosebleed will.

Spoiler:
She also happens be one of SPARTAN 119's favorite anime women and, judging from responses on forums, one of the more popular characters in the series.

I'm more of a Kaname fan than a Tessa fan, but I figured it would be good to have the defending champion back for another round. (Note to the person who originally nominated the character -I had some objections to the profile you submitted based on feeling that the wrong aspects of the character were emphasized. However you might also be disatisfied with this profile. If you are then contact me and maybe we can work something out.)

*Approved* (Hey, you really think I'd submit a nomination that didn't conform to my own standards? Razz

A teenage whispered who serves as part of the secretive international organization known as Mithril. She is the designer and commander of the world’s largest and most advanced submarine, the TDD-1 Tuatha De Danaan. She is a genuis in both technical and strategic matters, but is also a complete and utter klutz. She has a crush on Mithril Arm Slave pilot Sousuke Sagara, but she can`t seem to get him to take notice no matter what she does. Here`s Full Metal Panic`s Teletha "Tessa" Testarossa.

OK, OK, I understand the comments about her being my favorite and the Photoshop wierdness (Can't remember exactly why I made it, I think it was for another thread. I know I got a few laughs out of it an HSOTD thread on another site). But what about that Saeko vs. Predator. Are crossovers, even in a non-serious sense, not allowed.

Hmmm... well I do have to admit I'm not inclined to favor the inclusion of crossover material in general since I don't want people's impressions of the characters being confused by it. That being said I think part of my problem with that picture is that it's inclusion seems a bit pointless. (I got rid of a picture of Lucy in a Evangelion plugsuit in her nomination for similar reasons.) The purpose of pictures should be to show people what the characters look like and to highlight aspects of the character that make them appealing (such as their facial expressions, fashion sense, or aspects of their personality and characterisation).

Sorry about all this.

@MadHatChemist: While I heartily endorse your inclusion of Sylia Stingray to this contest, I must point out that the screenshots you added are from the original Bubblegum Crisis, not the 2040 reboot.

2040 Sylia had an Ifurita-vibe about her...



She also, in the small bit of the series that I actually DID get to see, seems to be somewhat open in her admiration of Linna Yamazaki's.... talents.




So... depending on which one you prefer, we've got images for both. *grins*

Uh... that would actually be my fault... story goes as follows:

CI originally nominated the 2040 version of the character in the previous thread, but the main image ended up deadlinked and the secondary image was really tiny. Then Madhat nominated the original version in this thread -decent pictures but I found the description kind of short. So I figured rather than make him go to the work of rewriting the thing I'd just substitute CI's longer description from the previous nomination thread. And of course that didn't quite work out. sweat

I'll discuss the matter with the two of them and see what we can work out. If they're okay with it maybe I'll have the two versions face off in a stand along match and whichever one gets chosen will "advance" to the main tournament.

An expert sniper of Special Assault Team of the prefectural police and one of the best snipers in the country, dispatched to clear Tokunosu Airport of zombies. She also happens to be school nurse Shizuka Marikawa's close friend (and possibly lesbian lover, this is slightly hinted when she recieves a call from Shizuka and claims it to be her boyfriend, and more than slightly hinted in the OVA.). In spite of being calm, cool, collected, and an excellent shot, She has also been shown to have a rather easygoing personality, and responds playfully to the sexual advances of her partner, Tajima. Introducing Rika Minami of Highschool of the Dead.
