2020 Exhibition Idea Drop Box

Post by maglor » Tue Sep 22, 2020 11:13 am

Purpose

This thread is to serve as a place anyone can write and store any inspiration that may come to them about exhibition matches. People may make suggestions and discuss exhibition matches suggested by others, so that staff may be given new inspiration for future exhibition matches. We also hope people will have fun tossing around some exhibition ideas.

Disclaimer: This thread is for suggestions for inspiration only. There is by no means any guarantee that matches suggested will be used at all. We are more interested in the idea and story behind the matches than the characters themselves.

Type of Exhibition in demand.
  • 1 character vs 1 character
  • 2 characters vs 2 character
  • Group match of 8 characters
  • Matches of other sizes and formats (though very unlikely this year)
Recommendations
  1. Please post a good reason or story for the match you are suggesting. For example, the 2010 Ruby R5 match between Asakura Minami (Touch) and Ayukawa Madoka (Kimagure Orange Road) carries a story between competing female character archetypes that may also interest anyone who knows about anime in the 1980s. In contrast, it is hard to guess at a story that may interest people for match between Kinomoto Sakura (Card Captor Sakura) and Suzumiya Haruhi (Suzumiya Haruhi).
  2. Try to make a match for which we are not sure of the victor. A match between Shana and Yoshida Kazumi does have immediately recognizable story line, but it is easy to guess that Shana will have an easy win with 70+% of the vote in this match given the current ISML climate. However, in a match between Kurahashi Riko (Love Lab) vs Natsuo Maki (Love Lab), the winner is much less clear as there is too little data available and both characters will have many opportunities to sway the voters between now and the time of the match. Thus, it is a match that is of greater interest.
    A question to ask yourself would be "Will Character A get approximately 40 to 60% of votes if she/he/it is matched against Character B?" If you can say "very likely" or "yes" to that question, then you have an exhibition idea that is worth proposing to the public.
  3. Consider whether at least one of the characters will be recognized by ~50% of the voters. Despite their historical interest, it is likely that characters like Asakura Minami and Ayukawa Madoka will fail this test, thus they may not be good choices for nominations by themselves. A possible alternative is in a 2 vs 2 match where you can pair a lesser known character with a more recognizable character. Another variation can be { 1 not well known but historically important character } + { 1 very well known character } vs { 2 somewhat well known characters from 2 different well recognized series }.
  4. Try recommending characters that haven't appeared in ISML match before. People like seeing "new" faces and names. One of the hopes of ISML is to introduce new characters and new series to the voters; thus staff will likely give more consideration to matches that include characters or series that haven't been exhibited before, even if the character or series may fail the above mentioned "50% recognizability" test.
  5. The big idea is to have fun. Feel free to troll and/or disregard the above 3 recommendations if you can post something that most people might find to be funny. This does not mean posting things that will offend or disgust others. Such offending posts will be deleted.

1. Amamiya Ren (Persona 5) and Velvet Crowe (Tales of Berseria) vs Rean Schwarzer (Eiyuu Densetsu: Sen no Kiseki) and 2B (Nier: Automata)

They released on the decade of 2010s (most of them are released on 2016 - 2017, unless Eiyuu Densetsu, which released on 2016 in English version, and 2013 in original one). All of them are protagonists from 4 respective franchise(s).

Note: For Rean Schwarzer's avatar, use the Sen no Kiseki III / IV version one.

2. Shin and Heroine (Amnesia) vs Arsené Lupin and Cardia Beckford (Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~)

Both of them have similar appearances, and they're from anime that adapted from Otome games (Visual Novel-like, but for Female audience).

3. Kurogane Ikki (Rakudai Kishi no Eiyuudan) vs Amagiri Ayato (Gakusen Toshi Asterisk)

Same LN (Light Novel) adaptations, both of them released in 2015 (both of them celebrate 5th anniversarry), and similar personality.

4. Ichinose Guren (Owari no Seraph) vs Willem Kmetsch (SukaSuka)

Both of them have similar appearances.
Note: This exhibitions only happens if Willem elimianted.

1. Darkrai (Pokemon) vs Nightmare (Kirby)- They both are Nintendo characters who have nightmare related powers. Also they both were final bosses at least once in their games although Darkrai was a final boss in Pokemon spin offs.

2. Kotozume Yukari (Kira Kira Precure A la Mode) vs Fujiwara Zakuro(Tokyo Mew Mew)- Both of them are purple, animal, and food themed magical girls. Who both seemingly have fangirls in their stories.

Western animation characters contest (Name subject to change)
We haven't had a contest involving characters from western cartoons in the entire history of isml. I really want to have one so the "International" part of this contest is justified lol
unfortunately, this year might have no more room for exhib tournaments ---- 2020 already has couples, touhou, and visual novel (according to moegirl)

You don't need to worry about copyrights... If a video game contest was held here why not this one? But I think we need to set some rules here
Female contest Rule proposal?Show
1. Must be FEMALE
------ (sexless characters are allowed if they exhibit predominantly female characteristics, E.g. the Steven Universe gems)

2. Must be ANIMATED, and / or come from Western animated media (TV, films, Web, OVA).
-----Art and animation style doesn't matter. Traditional, Stop-motion, CGI.
----- Western animation - defined as ANIMATED media created in the Western world, mostly from the Americas, Europe, and Oceania.
----- Shows from East Asia and Southeast Asia are not allowed.

Contentious topics:
- are anthropomorphic characters allowed? Many cartoons have animals/plants/objects, who speak and think like humans, as primary characters (Ex. My Little Pony, many Disney/Pixar films, the Looney Tunes series)
- are puppets allowed? (E.g. Muppets, Sesame Street)
- I think Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit should be eligible, since she's an animated character --- despite her show being a mix of live-action AND animation

One-off matches you say? Check back on this comment for more entries
Mostly sports but ehhShow
1. Joe Yabuki (Ashita no Joe) vs Ippo Makunochi (Hajime no Ippo)
------ Boxing players who defined a generation of manga readers. Both protagonists of the two most well-known manga about the sport.

2. Go Mifune/Speed Racer (Speed Racer) vs "Sweet" JP (Redline)
------- I just want to see them race because why not?

3. Mugen (Samurai Champloo) vs Dandy (Space Dandy)
------ Shinichiro Watanabe bowl. Hip hop samurai vs. Space disco

4. Yaichi Kuzuryuu vs Rei Kiriyama for the Dragon King shogi title

5. Taiga Kagami (Kuroko no Basket) vs Hanamichi Sakuragi (Slam Dunk)
---- 1v1 Basketbowl. Both have red hair and play as forwards.

6. Shouto Todoroki (My Hero Academia) vs. Zuko (Avatar The Last Airbender)
----- "Edgy", cool boys with facial scars (literally cool in Shouto's case). Both possess fire-related powers. And this match is gonna test if MHA has truly fallen from grace in ISML.

PAIRINGS
1. Kizuna AI / Kaguya Luna vs. Hatsune Miku / Megurine Luka
---- Virtual youtuber vs. Vocaloid. Ehhhh..... I want them to fight to the death if the audience wills it

2. German batlleship Bismarck / German cruiser Prinz Eugen vs. HMS Hood / HMS Prince of Wales (53)
---- All from azure lane. Re-enact the "Battle of the Denmark Strait" during World War II.

I think you should think twice about this exhibitions, since Maglor didn't want to include this, due to complication of copyrights.

Ehh, it's not like he will accept all entries listed here anyway. i don't know if isml had any instances of running into copyright trouble regarding the use of fictional characters --- the website seems to be non-profit, but it does have a donation page
Which company are we worrying about? Disney? Viacom? Warner Bros? I don't really know if these companies care about this contest in my opinion...

In the saimoe wikia i saw Blossom from the Powerpuff Girls among the list of characters, which means a cartoon character had competed in a contest of mostly anime characters. Granted it was in J-Saimoe 2002, but still.

Jesus (Saint☆Oniisan) vs Buddha (Saint☆Oniisan)
Their names explains itself.

Snow White (Shirayuki Hime no Densetsu) vs Cinderella (Cinderella Monogatari)
Disney is not the only one that makes animation on fairy tales.

2 v 2
Monika (Doki Doki Literature Club) + Yuri (Doki Doki Literature Club) vs Sayori (Doki Doki Literature Club) + Natsuki (Doki Doki Literature Club)

It would be interesting to study the relationship in DDLC, a phenomenal game about two years ago. To make it much more balance I paired Monika ( probably the most popular character) and Yuri (maybe not that popular because of her personality) together, versus Sayori ( MC's best friend when they were children) and Natsuki (probably more popular than Yuri). Studying the result and the number of people voting in this match can offer a lot of useful data (percentage of voting, etc.) to ISML. And it may help ISML to arrange galgame tournaments in the future if possible.

1 vs 1Show
Tamura Yukari(Sore ga Seiyuu!) vs Kugimiya Rie(Sore ga Seiyuu!)

Two famous voice actors.
Also can invite Hidaka Noriko, Horie Yui, Asano Masumi, and so on. But I think those two may be the most topical.
Just afraid to make the real people and their fans angry.
2 vs 2Show
Ayase Eli + Tojo Nozomi(LoveLive!) vs Tainaka Ritsu + Akiyama Mio(K-ON!)

Both are the important CP in a music themed animation.
The only barrier is that Akiyama Mio is now in the main event.
Group of 8Show
Komichi Aya (KINMOZA!)
Tedeza Rize (Is the Order a Rabbit?)
Ebisuzawa Kurumi (School-Live!)
Manaka Ao (Asteroid in Love)
Suzukaze Aoba (NEW GAME!)
Yukimi Koume (Urara Meirocho)
Hinata Yukari (Yuyushiki)
Nanami Yachiyo (Magia Record)

All of them share an interesting name: "Houbunsha Famous Actress", because they are all characters from Houbunsha and have similar appearance.
Other candidates: Nakano Azusa (K-ON!), Shima Rin (Laid-Back Camp), Sakuranomiya Maika (Blend·S), ...

I'm assuming that, despite the fact that Vocaloid absolutely dominated the Virtual Youtubers, i.e, most recognized Vocaloid character Hatsune Miku completely annihilated most recognized Virtual Youtuber Kizuna AI, we are still going to have a Virtual Youtuber tournament this year.

I'm also curious as to who came up with the idea of a character who had her game launched two years ago and had a recent anime series battling a character who had her game launched less than a month ago with no anime connection and thought it might be a close match. If the idea was to check the popularity of Genshin Impact's potential in an ISML setting, there are other mobile/PC games without any anime medium for it to compete against.

Yet, I am still biased towards Virtual Youtubers.

This is just an idea/suggestion, if there was ever going to be a plan to do a strictly mobile phone game tournament:
-mobile games that do not have any form of anime adaptation or is influenced by an already established anime, meaning games like Azur Lane and Grand Cross, which is based on an anime, are not allowed.
-It is also possible to exclude mobile phone applications that are based on already established games such as Fire Emblem Heroes is not allowed, unless there are game original characters, such as the main protagonists.
-Games like FGO is a bit trickier to figure out, since I only watched the Babylonia arc and don't know if they covered any of the other arcs the game has, but as long as they have not made an appearance, it might be okay. I'll leave that up to whoever does this.

First, select 32 mobile game characters. Then, let their schedule makeup be as follows:
-Jewel 1 - Round 1 part 1, 8 1v1 matches, first 16
-Jewel 2 - Round 1 part 2, 8 1v1 matches, second 16
-Jewel 3 - Round 2 (Round of 16), 8 1v1 matches, winners of round 1
-Jewel 4 - Quarterfinals, 8 1v1 matches, winners of round 2, consolation losers of round 2
-Jewel 5 - Semifinals, 8 1v1 matches, winners of quarterfinals, more consolidation of the losers
-Necklace/Pendant Round - Finals, 1 1v1 match, winner of semi finals. If you want, finish the rest of the losers bracket.

How to rank everyone is the difficult part, but how I would do it is multiply the number of downloads or reviews of the game by the overall rating of the game divided by 5
-For example, if a game had 4M downloads, and the rating of the game is 4.5/5, the value of that character would be 3.6M
-Conversely, the other method, if same game had 100k reviews with the same rating of 4.5/5, the value would be 90k instead.

Note: I don't normally play these kinds of games. I mostly play mobile games that I have recognition of what it is based on, such as FGO and Crossing Void.
I can easily search up games like Genshin Impact on my phone and search up the main characters of said games and provide a quick default list, should this idea come to fruition.
