Battle Arena Otaku Fight! Fight! We’re down to the last two competitors in 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 of our two remaining heroes will come out on top this year?
Luffy and Wild Tiger have defeated their share of competitors in this year’s Arena. But in the final round, only one can emerge the victor! 30 competitors had to fall to reach this point in the tournament, but here we are: one pirate captain, one superhero, one big finish.
We’ve commented quite a few times about Luffy’s big win last year and how that might factor into a potential victory in 2013: people like a returning champion and the “One Piece” pirate is definitely that. Having defeated friggin’ Voltron in 2012, how hard would be be for him to take down a corporate mascot/superhero like Wild Tiger?
Well, people also love an underdog, and hard-luck hero Wild Tiger (AKA Kotetsu T. Kaburagi) is the very definition of the term. The least popular of the heroes in Sternbild City, he’s estranged from his daughter, broke, and pretty much the laughingstock of the world of sponsored superheroes. He’s also loyal, dedicated (to a fault), and a passionate defender of the weak, helpless, and misunderstood.
Each of these competitors would make a fine champion for 2013, make no mistake about it. So cast your votes and decide which of these two heroes will be your 2013 Arena winner!
