Greetings! Earlier this year, I conducted my first ever Waifu Madness tournament. It was a lot of fun and a great success for the blog. I figured that as we are now in the second half of the year that it was time to give the guys their time to compete. And this time I now want you all to have your say in the selections of who will compete. So this time, I will, be asking you which characters you want to see face off in this tournament. You will be aiding me in the selection process.

I have started the selection process by picking a few characters that I want to take part in this tournament. Those 8 characters are:

Okabe Rintarou (Steins; Gate)                                           Saitama (One Punch Man)

Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail)                               Kyon (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)

Shiroe (Log Horizon)                                                Sousuke Sagara (Full Metal Panic!)

Kiritsugu Emiya (Fate/Zero)                                         Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop)

And the rest of the tournament roster, I wish to leave up to you all in the community. I want you to nominate characters to join the tournament. You will be able to submit up to 3 best boy characters that you would like to see in tournament. It doesn’t matter whether they come from a romance or action anime. Also characters from currently airing anime qualify for this as well. Just as long as they are a male character in an anime, they qualify. The number of final participants will be either 32 or 64 depending on the number of responses. If we fall short of either goal, I will put in additional picks of my own to round off the roster.  If there are too many characters- there will be a an extra voting round to narrow down the characters.

To submit your picks, please click on the link here:

Pleased include the series/franchise that the character belongs to. This will help in sorting candidates. Any suggestions for the 8 characters that I listed above will be ignored as they are already on the roster.  You will be allowed to submit as many forms as you want. I will be taking submissions until 9-15-2018.

Thank you to everyone who decides to participate. Once the contestants are determined, there will be weekly voting to narrow the field down to one champion. I am looking forward to seeing your responses! Until next time, this is Railgunfan75 signing off and saying see you soon. Stay geeky my friends!
