Check back for round two!
Who had the best style, vocaloid Hakune Mitsu or Sailor Moon? Who'd be the first to crack the case, L or Phoenix Wright? Which tough-talking badass do you want to watch your back when it's about to go down—Spike Spiegel or Mugen?
With our one month event Battle Arena Otaku Fight! Fight!, we plan to let you, the readers decide. We're taking 64 classic characters from anime, manga, and Japanese film and TV, pairing them off, and letting you decide who's the coolest, the most interesting, the funniest, the best dressed, essentially the best among some classic characters and a few that had a pretty big year in 2011.
Starting tomorrow April 3, 2012 and running through May 5, 2012, we'll have groups of eight pairs for you to vote on, and we'll announce the votes at the end of the week. As you start paring down the list to your favorite characters, we'll start putting together new matchups, until only one character remains on top. It's kind of like a bracket system, but with Kigome instead of Kobe (we can hear your groans from here!).
Get a look at the match-ups right here!
