You don't have experience with fangirls. Sesshōmaru will curb stomp Kurama in a heartbeat. Kenshin I have no clue, but he's in because he has 4000 more MAL favorites than Kurama. Remember we're expecting more than 50% of the voters to be female, possibly much more. The balance of the characters chosen are perfect based on the available information. I'm sure we'll do better next year once we have info.

And the indication that I was even considering a match between Kurama vs Sesshōmaru was where?
I was pointing out the strength of someone like Kurama (who even I could see as fangirl bait when I watched it early on in my anime career, and some of the other characters mentioned in this thread) vs someone like Keima. Data is not information.

I highly doubt that Sesshōmaru vs Kurama would be a curbstomp, simply because of their similarities.

This point is taken directly from another media source, where someone was watching Star Wars for the first time, and hated it because they started at episode one, they were then told to watch starting from four and probably found it a completely different experience. The factor both here, and for someone like Kurama is time.

Once again, can't admit you're wrong, and made an irrelevant reference. Data is information in the hands of those with enough brains to interpret it. Since you don't think so, that says a lot about you. Moving on.

And I'm gonna pretend I didn't see this immature argument. Also Sesshoumaru >>>>> Hiei > Kurama.

Anyone in doubt who to vote, please vote those in my sig, okay? XD. (Mukuro, Hibari, Kanda, Sebastian, Shizuo, Izaya)

Since everyone else is giving a count, I decided to as well! So...if I didn't fail at counting, I know quite well 79 of the characters. And I at least semi-know (gave the series a try) 88 of them. ..... More than I thought. Ack.

Aw, completely forgot about Killua :(

Since people are giving their counts, here's mine.

Totally know = 32 ( Chars from Gundam 00, Index, Reborns, D.Grayman etc )
Know them roughly = 25 ( Chars from Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tail etc )
Totally oblivious to them = The rest... and yes, that includes Ciel, Sebastien, Shidou Mariya, Ikuto, Okazaki Tomoya and the other shoujo anime guys in the tourney.

Thanks a lot to Hikari-Chan , Midnight-Jasper and ppizzapie for the awesome signatures and slivers.

err, i don't think CLANNAD is shoujo.
according to wikipedia (lolfailsource), the demographic for the mangas are shounen/seinen.
on a side note, i really recommend watching CLANNAD ~After Story~. the story is so good!

I think I'm rooting for Hideyoshi, Rin, and Kida the most. I seriously wish Negi was in this, though.
