Welcome to the second round of 2013's Battle Arena Otaku Fight! Fight!. This is MTV Geek's annual brawl between the biggest and best in characters from anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture characters. Not only will we get a chance to spotlight some of most interesting, most intriguing, or simply odd characters from 2013, but it's also a chance to you to have your voice heard. You know the drill: we'll present the matchup, and you the reader will get to choose which character comes out on top. So which mech, heroine (or hero), monster, or mascot will come out on top this year?

Let the second round commence!

Both characters challenge things that go bump, but when matched up, will Ichigo's blade defeat Maka's scythe?

Maka's the best, brightest, and probably one of the most powerful students at "Soul Eater's" Death Weapon Meister Academy, helping track down evil souls and witches. And along with her living weapon, Soul, she's gotten really good at it in her time at the DWMA, even helping head off a war which would have seen villainous witches reigning supreme.

But this might be a case where skill is trumped by experience. High school student Ichigo Kurosaki has been battling malicious souls--"hollows"--for years in the long-running "Bleach." He's racked up more adventures than his opponent and that might give him an edge in this round.

Honestly, theirs is one of those matchups that's almost too close to call.
