so soon people forget about Sorata...
just because he met Lelouch so soon last time and met Kirito in group in 2012...
well, if it is a short competition, Sorata might lost easily,
but now this is a league, the Sakura-so series strength will be able to fully support him, so I say: he, too, has a shot

and I don't think we can ignore Naruto series
yes, they are never strong in this competition, but with the series coming to an end and the movie (and various new product that follows after the story ends) the hype feels like the same hype I felt when the series was just out and the series reach the border between Naruto and Shippuden,
Even when the hype is low, Kakashi somehow always makes it...
Now the hype is up again, he can do bigger damage
SpoilerShow
Especially if he really becomes the 6th Hokage (forcing Naruto to content with number 7)

Sorata no chance. We'll see. My opinion is that Male division is for characters who have strong/outstanding personalities. It's their showcase.
EDIT: Strong/outstanding personality is what people always expect male to have, differentiating male from female.

It's an ugly list with me using first names and last names with no rhyme or reason but it already took me a while to make this list.
Yea, that's what I was looking for, pointing out how many anime now have the MC, 'Sunohara' character and that's it for the males in the series

I believe Hidoyoshi is in the Trap tournament, and thus out. With the TOC rules, I think Lelouch and Kazuto are out as well.
I did note some of the other characters from non-representative anime (Bleach, Naruto, One Piece and FMA came to mind for that) that has a number of possible strong contestants for the male division, as would male focused shows. But even with those, I doubt we'll have enough for a decent split in the division to arise.

That is a broad statement. It also includes Hōtarō type of characters/people. Perhaps what I really mean is having unique/shining points in his personality. I hope you have more confidence now^^

Here's a list of everyone in Male Exhibition 2013 by debut year. It took me a while so I'll do commentary later.
(Yes there is a reason I did this)
Anyway this shows there were 45 guys from the last two years in this tournament. That's 9 more guys than necessary for regular season and 39 less than necessary for preliminaries.
According to these stats from TRE (I'm probably using them wrong so sorry) the weakest necessary guy is Hazuki Nagisa who got 1665 votes. As a comparison Karuta got 3453 votes in the preliminary period with 6 girl matches.
I was originally just using his list so I didn't have to write out everyone's names myself. But then I though may as well.
Although this isn't a 100% apples to oranges comparison considering the highest votes for a guy in preliminaries was 5232 when the highest vote for a girl was 7107.
But I guess whether we a split for males is viable should probably wait for at least the first proper male tournament...
Guys with stars I might have gotten in the wrong year.

Regarding the name and looking at some of the ideas others came up with, I think Comet/Meteor could be an interesting name for the division now that could also later become the name for the newcomers division and Asteroid for the older contestants. The idea being that a Meteor pass around quickly. You can see they shiny for a moment as they pass in the sky, so a name for a division of the newcomers. And Asteorid are similar astronomical objects but that are now settle up in obit somewhere repeating that process on and on.

Asteroids become meteors when they enter the atmosphere.

Meteors can't become asteroids though. So if anything, it should be the other way around.

well, the name itself sounds cool
beside my own nomination, I full support this

(plus, once again: something sounds galactic is rather boring for me, I mean: we used this theme for 7 years, why not a refresh?
no need to change the name of the ones that were already there in the previous tournament, of course. Just new theme...)

Are Kirito, Lelouch and Hotarou going to be in the male regular season next year?
Or, are they going to be banned just like the female champions?

I can't really see there being any tournament of champions for male because there are only 3 champions :p

Even though I think it's another area of 'heaven' entirely, I think of the valkyries (females warriors) when mentioning that style of mythology.

If we wanted to use another style of mythology, shouldn't it be something based on the Japanese/Chinese beliefs, since this is an ANIME competition?

The (only) answer would be Altair division x Vega division, and say goodbye to Nova and Stella. The myth of Altair & Vega is popular in China and Japan.

I bet Shiro's 2015 performance is going to be like last year's Mashiro. The fact is that people always don't consider a solid performance in Nova division to be convincing enough. However, people would like to follow a character only if they are convinced, meaning that even a perfect first year RS performance in Nova is not sufficient for a solid fanbase to be formed. This mostly explains why Mashiro didn't go further than quarterfinal in 2013 while Kotori had a very fluctuating performance in this year's PS1. Nova division is really a double-edged sword. It gives every new character more time to form her fanbase, but at the same time it virtually takes away the chance for extremely strong fanbase to be formed. This differentiates Mashiro and Kotori from Kanade. Meanwhile, the Nova division keeps producing more and more mediocre contestants. My opinion: If Nova division had started in 2011, Kanade wouldn't have become today's Kanade. Remember the strongest rises from the toughest condition. Every time she pulls off a hard win, she gathers faith from more people.

EDIT: The last sentence also explains Nanami's miraculous postseason.

THAT'S IT!
The name for the future female ToC division is Vega and the name for the future for the future male ToC division is Altair

Then we have to wait for 5 more years before the name "Altair" is used :tearsad:

agree, but also disagree with this..
Nova division certainly cuts the growth potential of newbies, but at the same time, allows character like Nanami - one who does not have a strong performance in Nova - to become more powerful
because she is the underdog for Nova elites, the one whose victory we all will celebrate, the one whose lost we all will sympathize

the mistake of Mashiro is because she turns into a strong side so early... that's why when she wins too much, people will start to antivote her, and then that antivote behavior becomes a habit...
same thing we can see from Kotori and her DAL friends, whom received a huge amount of antivote in PS

Well, it means nothing now, though; the powerhouses are not here again, which means the strength of powerhouses will not be feared that much, again...
in this case, it's Asuna, Kotori, Mashiro, Shana, and perhaps Nanami (if she can ride this year's momentum into next year's aquamarine) who will be the strong side for Stella
I'll be watching Rikka, Azusa, F/SN, Oreimo, and SOS-dan, too
