Rem (Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu) vs.
Makise Kurisu (Steins;Gate)
>> Show/Hide match previews <<
Time travel sure sounds cool, but for the ones staying behind, it can easily become confusing.
Kurisu did not want to believe in space travel. As a genius graduating from university at seventeen, she believed this so-called time machine to be a fraud until she was finally convinced with proper evidence. However, in other timelines, she did not realize how lucky she was to have a time traveler protecting her at all costs.
Rem does not even realize she lived through different time loops. How could she explain that this boy knows so much about her? How can he understand her so well when they just met? But to save everyone living in the manor, this boy has no choice but to live the same days again and again. It is hard for Rem not to fall for this mysterious person.
Living with a time traveler generally comes with many adventures and one does not always have the opportunity to say no. Across all possible timelines, who will be the eternal winner between Rem and Kurisu?
Katō Megumi (Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata) vs. Shiro (No Game No Life)
What does it mean to be noticed? What does it mean to be seen? Katō Megumi never really wanted to be the center of attention, preferring to go with the flow of where life takes her. Interacting with a group of people who are bent on making their project a success sparks an interest to do more for the group than she should. Slowly, Megumi became an essential component for the project, doing more work behind the scenes than any other member. Shiro is used to having her brother by her side, but, as an individual, she is very shy and cautious. Shiro is afraid of making bonds outside of her protective circle because she cannot trust those she does not know that much about. Only when she feels that the person has a warm heart does Shiro open up to him or her, becoming a critical member of her group. Who will be able to feel comfortable stepping into the spotlight she is anxious of?
Koizumi Hanayo (Love Live!) vs. Minase Iori (THE [email protected])
The road to becoming an idol may not be as easy as how these two girls envisioned it. For Koizumi Hanayo, she was always looking and admiring idols from afar, wishing that she can become like them. No matter how much she studied or learned how these girls achieved their status, Hanayo is too shy to make that first step, doubting that she can make a difference in the idol world. An encounter with an eccentric student may provide her the courage necessary to take a step into the world she wanted to be in. Minase Iori took her idol status for granted, believing that living the idol life is simple and easy given her status and charm. However, working hard as one was not something she envisioned, from working with public relations to mingling with business partners and fans. From there, Iori respected how much time and effort an idol has to do behind the scenes in order to make her career a success. Who will be able to showcase her emotional and unforgettable story on stage?
Keroberos (Cardcaptor Sakura) vs. Luna (Sailor Moon)
Guardians in their own way, Keroberos and Luna will square off to see who the superior of the two is. As the keeper of the cards, it is Keroberos’s duty to safeguard them from evil and make sure that they do not escape from the sealed book. Keroberos can be impatient sometimes, wishing that the successor of the cards would stop making careless mistakes when facing the supernatural. Over time, Keroberos learns to be serene as a trainer, allowing her to embrace her normal life while reminding her of her duties as a collector. Luna’s main mission is to find the princess of her world and seek the defenders who would assist her in finding her. Although the person she is training is easily frightened and a bit of a crybaby, Luna gives her advice every now and again to help her overcome a situation. While the search may take longer than she expected, Luna is confident that the people she has chosen will guide her to the right direction. Who will be considered the “true guardian” by the end of this match?
