Last year, 32 brave souls fought bravely for the delicious Heavenly Cookie. In the end it was Shiraoky who brushed her opponents aside and took all the bishies home.
This year, with new faces emerging and old faces returning to the very same stage yet again, who will be crowned the ISML 2014: Forum Edition Champion?
Let's give it a nyaa!~

It's shorter than DarknessHid at least. I'm pretty weird, and I use a ton of emoticons while I type and sound super excited all the time I actually am excited all the time 8).
In the end, I'm just your average anime fan who came to this website to support my favorite characters but wandered into this forum by chance and befriended tons of amazing people here (:
I was hoping that my little spiel in the finals match would be good enough for a speech, but apparently not
Oh well... even if you already read it, I'd like to reiterate a word of congratulations to everyone who participated, whether as a contestant, a promo artist, or a voter! (:
Of course, a big round of digital applause should be given to Jello, who had to deal with all sorts of tournament drama this year (sorry ;u; I feel like a lot of it was due to my matches ;-;) but managed to run a successful tournament! Those posters were so gorgeous ahhh~
ANYWAY, I'm really thankful for all the love and support you guys showed me, and I wish next year's contestants a lot of luck for the future. Cookies for all! Huzzah!
The knock-out bracket:

Forum members found creating multiple accounts for the purpose of voting will have all their votes invalidated
If you haven't vote at least once in the group stage/play-offs, you can't just start voting in the knock-out phase. So if your first+second tournament votes are in the knock-out phase, those won't count.
Voters may request to change their vote via PM to JLoable91 (if cast by error) although this request might not always be granted
