What, maglor's the yandere one. Anyways, remember that most of the information we collected are from KBM where the voting during male division is about 20% male 80% female, and we believe that ISML Saibishie will be about 40% male 60% female. So naturally, there will be more "bishies" than "cool" characters.

Hm, looked up Hajime Saito because I didn't know him, but he's so good looking D: Agghhh~ and his personality sounds so <3
Too bad he's up against one of my other faves, or I would have voted for him.

I plan on taking part in this tournament since I see a few characters I know, and looking up characters I don't know might make me interested in checking out some other series. But before all that, I'll go ahead and make the disclaimer that anything I say about this tournament while it's going on that may come across a certain way (not that there's anything wrong with that) is a product of me being in Stupid Sexy Flanders mode.

Why's Watanuki considered a Tsubasa Chronicle character when there's a xxxholic anime?
Especially since he'd have a hard time against the screen time rule without Shunraiki.
KholdStare88 wrote:I have no clue. When I did my research on which characters are worthy of being the 96, KBM had Watanuki Kimihiro listed as a TC character, so we never bothered to change it. I'm not sure what we will do to be honest.
I think this may be because Watanuki's first appearance was held in Tsubasa Chronicles. That doesn't mean that he isn't well-known in either xxxHOLiC or Tsubasa Chronicles, so I don't think it should be too big of a problem, I hope! ^^;
Isn't Watanuki more of a supporting/background character in Tsubasa with much of the series focusing on Sakura and Syaoran? I've only watched the Tsubasa movie. However, I have watched xxxHolic and Watanuki is definitely a main character there. According to MAL, the first season of Tsubasa Chronicle came out a year before xxxHolic did. So really it would be similar to having Mikoto listed from Index instead of Railgun. It might come down to whether the staff judges Watanuki to be just as recognizable from Tsubasa as he would be from xxxHolic. But since both series are separate, taking place in different parts of the CLAMP's metaverse, it's not as simple as with Index/Railgun since those series happened in the same location and setting.

Also, about Edward Elric in the tournament. Shouldn't Roy Mustang be in it instead considering what Ed thinks of him? :P Or what about Alex Louis Armstrong?

I'm assuming that along with the traps and GAR characters, there will also be some keet characters?
(I'm only asking the question as a way to include that term for those who might not have heard it before.)

Edit: Something wasn't italicized...

As far as I remember the only thing Watanuki does in the TV series is hold Mokona for half an episode and hand it over to Yuuko. The reason he was under Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations was that no xxxHolic anime was released that year. In SBM he's a xxxHolic character.

BTW precedent is on the side of renaming it to ×××Holic. When Yuuko showed up in the final exhibition match her series was considered xxxHolic and she shows up regularly throughout the Tsubasa TV series and OVAs.

Okay, I think we will change it to ×××Holic (maybe), so thanks for the input guys.

@Kordosa: Unfortunately, we didn't include Shuuichi, but I would have. But the 96 is locked, translated, coded, and everything and now can't be changed. ^^;

Huh. Lots of people are making assumptions who should be in the tournament instead and who they are missing, but please keep in mind that what you were shown so far (after the update adding 4 more groups in the first post) is still only 1/4 of the bishie/GAR contestants. There is still 72 more characters! (And lots of them in evil match-ups...) Some faves will end up missing, but that's inevitable with just 96 places. I thought that number was big....till I found out it's not big at all. Asdwkndfwfnewf I can name 30 characters on spot who I would have wanted there as well.

While many of these groups have at least one guy I know in them.. it's kinda disheartening for me to see the number of anime I just haven't had the time to watch..

This is beginning to feel like the start of a new ISML year with the number of anime I suddenly want to watch, except this time I only have a month to get some of it done, and I'm still working on ISML 2011 anime :arrowed:

Wow.. a group were I know all three. Although one is a side-character, the other two are the main characters of their shows.
And all three have had girls of their series show up in Ex matches.
