Gokō Ruri (Kuroneko) (Ore no Imōto) vs. Tachibana Kanade (Angel Beats!)
五更瑠璃 （黑猫）(我的妹妹哪有这么可爱！) vs. 立华奏 (天使)(Angel Beats!)
Queen of queens was the most dreamed of title for every victor of ISML when they came into this year’s Tournament of Champions. From the eight possible winners of the Tiara, two girls are left in the Final Match. One of them will get the highest honor to be crowned as Queen of ISML.
“This arena will be surrounded by the dark power of Kuroneko...”
Tiara 2013 wasn’t the end for Gokō Ruri, and 2014 might have been the fall for her, but she refused to surrender. She won't waste this golden chance in this year’s Tournament of Champions, and it seems Kuroneko will try to release her secret power in today’s match.
"Hand Sonic Final Version...Ready!"
After succeeding in taking down her eternal rival in the Semifinal, Kanade seems untouchable in this tournament. The wings of Tenshi will cover the arena of the Tournament of Champions and Kanade is in battle mode already; no one can run from her now.
Just one more step to rule the tournament. Kanade the "Tenshi," or Ruri the "Kuroneko"? Everything will be settled now.
“Hand Sonic Final Version...Ready！”
Ratu di atas segala Ratu, panggilan yang mungkin sangat diimpi-impikan oleh para pemenang ISML ketika berlaga di ajang Turnamen Pemenang tahun ini. Dari delapan pemenang Tiara ISML, tersisa dua yang berhasil sampai di babak final ini. Dan salah satu dari mereka akan mendapatkan kehormatan tertinggi untuk dimahkotai sebagai ratu ISML.
"Arena ini akan dikelilingi kekuatan kegelapan dari Kuroneko..."
Tiara 2013 bukanlah akhir bagi Gokō Ruri; 2014 mungkin menjadi kejatuhan baginya, namun dia menolak untuk menyerah. Kesempatan emas tak disia-siakannya di Turnamen Pemenang tahun ini dan Sang Kuroneko akan mencoba melepaskan kekuatan rahasianya di pertandingan hari ini.
"Hand Sonic versi terakhir... Siap!"
Setelah berhasil menjatuhkan rival abadinya di semifinal, Kanade seakan tidak tersentuh pada turnamen ini. Sayap Tenshi kembali melingkupi arena Turnamen Pemenang hari ini dan Kanade sudah dalam mode bertarungnya pada saat ini; tidak ada yang bisa lari darinya sekarang.
Hanya tinggal selangkah lagi untuk menguasai turnamen ini; Kanade sang Tenshi ataukah Ruri sang Kuroneko? Semuanya akan ditentukan sekarang.
Accelerator (Toaru Majutsu no Index) vs. Araragi Koyomi (Monogatari Series)
一方通行(魔法禁书目录) vs. 阿良良木历(物语系列)
"And so, we stand and fight for what we believe is right..."
Two fighters stand in a ring fighting for what could be the biggest chance in their careers. With someone to protect and people who have some meaning in his life, Accelerator is willing to put everything on the line his way. No more walking as a lone wolf, Accelerator fights for the safety of those he cares about, making sure that picking a fight with him would be the last thing any enemy would want to have in mind. Araragi Koyomi knows that he is not alone when it comes to dealing with situations bigger than he can handle. With his friends willing to lend a helping hand, Araragi uses their strength to give himself the courage to stand and fight for those whom he cannot afford to lose. Their eyes are set on each other; their minds, calm; their hearts, at ease. One move is all it takes to turn the tide to one’s favor. The two run towards each other, and the fight for the Scepter commences!
Chitanda Eru (Hyōka) vs. Misaka Mikoto (Toaru Majutsu no Index)
千反田爱瑠(冰菓) vs. 御坂美琴(魔法禁书目录)
"What kind of story will we discuss today?"
Gossip, mysteries, and urban legends are popular material around many girls, especially when they talk together with friends who have the same interests as them. Misaka Mikoto and Chitanda Eru are no exception, who actually have a huge interest in those kinds of stories.
"Urban Legends are nonsense, but there's no harm in us finding out."
Mikoto often discussed the urban legends of Academy City with her friends, usually in the nearest restaurant or cafe. A girl is still a girl, and Mikoto still loves the city's legends, even though she is one of the most feared Level 5 in the town.
Just give up and surrender when Eru shows her curiosity to you, especially over some mysteries happening around her. What, who, where, why, or how will be in the air until her thirst in looking for the answer is satisfied.
In this Tournament of Champions, they will try to make their stories. A story about their existence, and also a story about a great battle. Mikoto. or Eru?
美琴常常与朋友们讨论学园都市的都市传说，通常是在附近的餐厅或者咖啡厅。毕竟是一个女孩子，即便是最令人生畏的Level 5, 她依然热爱着那些传说。
"Cerita apa yang akan kita bahas hari ini?"
Cerita-cerita mistis, gosip ataupun mitos merupakan salah satu bahan obrolan yang paling disukai oleh para gadis, apalagi jikalau dibicarakan bersama teman-teman yang punya minat yang sama. Tidak terkecuali bagi Misaka Mikoto dan Chitanda Eru yang ternyata punya minat yang besar akan cerita-cerita seperti itu.
"Legenda itu omong kosong, namun tak ada salahnya kita cari tahu."
Mikoto sering membahas cerita-cerita legenda Kota Pelajar bersama teman-temannya; biasanya di restoran atau di kafe terdekat. Seorang gadis tetaplah gadis, Mikoto tetap menyukai hal semacam ini meski dia adalah salah satu Level 5 yang ditakuti di kota.
Menyerah dan pasrahlah ketika Eru mengungkapkan rasa penasarannya pada dirimu, terutama atas hal-hal misterius yang terjadi di sekitarnya. Apa, siapa, di mana, mengapa dan bagaimana akan terus terngiang dengar sampai rasa ingin tahunya terpuaskan.
Di arena Turnamen Pemenang kali ini, mereka berdua akan mencoba membuat sebuah cerita; cerita tentang mereka sendiri. Cerita tentang eksistensi mereka, dan juga cerita tentang pertarungan hebat mereka. Mikoto ataukah Eru?
Kirigiri Kyōko (Danganronpa) vs. Tsunemori Akane (Psycho-Pass)
A detective: someone who investigates and solves crimes committed by felons who choose to commit them. A title worthy of these two, one an Inspector in a dystopia disguised as an utopian world, the other trapped in a school forced to solve the countless murders committed by the students caused by the atmosphere of despair. Despite their unfavourable circumstances, they chose to keep calm, to not just simply give up and admit defeat, but rather to solve the crimes laid before them, no matter how complex or dangerous they can really be. Why, you may ask? Well, one might say they are foolish people, people who would not leave any stone unturned despite knowing the consequences. However, others say they are the real-deal, detectives that their respective worlds need.
And so these two detectives face for the very first time and possibly the last. To whom will you give credit?
Rurutie (Utawarerumono) vs.
Kōgami Yuriko (Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru)
Despite them looking like average teenagers in their worlds, the will for the things they have passion in is certainly rather abnormal and amazing for what they have done to uphold this passion they have. Rurutie might be small in stature, but her fascination for the 'fine arts' has crafted her into a big woman capable of listing out the various names of famous artists who have created the ''fine art' that she so adores. Whereas for Yuriko, her resolve to never leave a case unsolved has motivated her to do things she thought she would never do in order to learn the actual truth of the situation, the truth she wants to bring to light to the people involved.
With strong wills behind their backs, who shall prevail in this battle of wills?
Nase Mitsuki (Kyōkai no Kanata) vs.
Tomori Nao (Charlotte) vs.
Isla (Plastic Memories) vs.
Katō Megumi (Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata)
Isla was frantically looking for her dropped earring on the ground, having not noticed it being loose and, as a result, losing it. As she was just about to give up, a figure in a long midnight blue dress appeared and asked whether what she was holding in her hand was what she was so anxious about. Isla looked upon the item and realized that it was indeed her precious earring that she had carelessly dropped earlier. Profusely thanking the person, Isla asked for her benefactor's name. The girl introduced herself as Nase Mitsuki, one of her opponents. Initially surprised, Isla then asked whether both of them could walk towards the grand hall together. Mitsuki agreed with a warm smile and the two of them, hand in hand, made their way towards the final arena, chattering about the incident that had just happened. Meanwhile on the other side, Nao, dressed in a ravishing white dress, was struggling her way to her destination in high heels when she met one of her opponents, Megumi, who was dressed in a delicate light blue gown. Megumi had appeared to be having troubles finding her way, but despite that, her face was still blank in expression. Initially, Nao had ignored the girl and walked away, but she quickly came back and dragged her along with her. As both parties soon met, they stood in front of the door that was the arena of their final battle this year. With a deep breath, they held hands and took the first step into their battle.
