Best Girl Contest 2017

Post by Shmion84 » Fri Jun 02, 2017 11:02 am

Thanks to Lulu for pointinh out: nominations for the this year's tournament have started today.
(Full title: Best Girl Part 4: A Certain Salty Railgun!)

Previous champions:
2014 - Makise Kurisu
2015 - Yukinoshita Yukino
2016 - Misaka Mikoto

Thread for 2016 tournament.
Reddit post.
Nomination page, current entrant roster.

Nomination rules:
  • Only human looking female characters that have appeared in an anime are eligible. Female characters that have only appeared in a manga, visual novel or hentai will not be allowed.
    Only girls that have appeared in an anime as late as Spring 2016 are eligible. Please do not nominate any girl who has appeared in an anime later than that season. (Yes, that means no dragon lolis this year.)
    The picture you use for your nomination must come from MAL (My Anime List). If not, the nomination will be deleted.
    Check the Character List first before nominating to prevent repeats.
    All previous BEST GIRLS AND BEST CHARACTERS winners will not be allowed including: Makise Kurisu, Yukino Yukinoshita, Misaka Mikoto, and Hitagi Senjougahara.
    Starting this year, there will be a 5 character per franchise cap, meaning that only 5 characters per franchise will be allowed into the final bracket. These 5 spots will be determined by elimination round votes.
Note: you can nominate as many characters from the same series as you want, but a maximum of 5 reps can survive. In general it can be a problem if a few popular series with a large cast occupy a lot of slots in the main tournament (like Saki in AST, other examples could be Toaru Majutsu no Index, Fate series, Monogatari series...). Let's see how this additional rule will diversify the list of contestants.

Unofficial World Saimoe Champion Suzukaze Aoba @ NEW GAME! isn't eligible (NEW GAME! is a summer 2016 series). But a future champion could be.

I got all the way down the page before I realized that it was a "select everyone" and not a "head-to-head vs", by which point I had picture voted so many times I couldn't be bothered deselecting girls I didn't know and ended up voting for 3/4 of everyone there #fail

We will only know the 512 characters who advance to the main tournament and their seeding number (= rank). But we won't know the vote numbers for them or the vote numbers for the eliminated characters.

Last elimination group today.

(19 of my nominations today - 9 in yesterday's group. Total number of entrants reduced to 3069. So it's possible that you voted for ineligible and now deleted character in an earlier group.)
