In a post-apocalyptic future where humanity live underground in fear of the mutant beings called Beastmen, a human resistance movement is formed to combat the Beastmen threat. Led by the hot-blooded young man Kamina, this team is known to steal the Beastmen's personal mecha, Gunmen, for their personal use and for relying on reckless tactics in the heat of battle. The team would also reform years later to combat the threat of the alien being known as the Anti-Spiral. This is Gurren Lagann's Dai-Gurren Brigade.

Notable Members: Simon, Kamina, Yoko Littner, Nia, Boota, Rossiu Adai, Kittan Bachika, Leeron Littner, Dayakka Littner, Gimmy and Darry Adai, Bachika Sisters

And their opponents:

A race of highly superhuman humanoid-like beings, these four were once among a race of the most feared living beings on the planet known to eat ordinary humans. However, their race's “rule of evolution” and sensitivity to sunlight kept their numbers low and were bringing them to the brink of extinction. Awakening in the year 1938, these four seek to find a jewel called the Red Stone of Aja and wish to combine its power with the Stone Masks in hopes of becoming ultimate life forms that would allow them to overcome their weakness to sunlight. This is Jojo's Bizarre Adventures' Pillar Men.

Notable Members: Santana, Esidisi, Wamuu, Kars

Match #2

These four students of Honnoji Academy are beneath Satsuki Kiryuin in governing the high school with a merciless iron fist within its student council. As the top members of the student council, each of them wear a Three-Star Goku Uniform that greatly heighten their physical attributes and give them powerful abilities for their personal use. With Ryuko Matoi serving as a major threat to their influence at Honnoji, Satsuki has Ryuko go through these four in a gauntlet-style battle in order to get the right to combat Satsuki. As the series progresses, all is not what it seems with Satsuki and these four in terms of their purpose. This is Kill la Kill's Elite Four.

Notable Members: Ira Gamagori, Uzu Sanageyama, Nonon Jakuzure, Hoka Inumuta

And their opponents...

This group consists of several powerful and notorious pirates who have allied themselves with the World Government as privateers. They are used by the World Government to conquer other countries to expand their territory and keep other pirates in check. However, this group is known to not always follow their assigned orders and do not think very highly of one another. All of them have a very jaded outlook on life and are looked down upon by both Marines and other pirates due to either being considered sell-outs to the government or being no different from other pirates. This is One Piece's Shichibukai.

Notable Members: Dracule Mihawk, Donquixote Doflamingo, Bartholomew Kuma, Boa Hancock, Trafalgar Law, Buggy

Voting will end on either Monday or Tuesday. Have fun!

  1. Dai-Gurren Brigade

As much I love both Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann, One Piece's group had more diversity.

That link doesn't go to Seven Seas Alliance. It's Sindria's Eight Generals which I think I made a typo in the deck summary.

Sindria's Eight Generals are a group of powerful individuals who are part of Sinbad's Seven Seas Alliance.

should be

Sindria's Eight Generals are a group of powerful individuals led by Sinbad. Some of the individuals are from countries of the Seven Sea Alliance.

I didn't create the concept page yet. I create it by Thursday night after my meeting.

On-topic:

Match 1: Seven Seas Alliance Generals

Match 2: SSS

Ironically, I'm rewatching Angel Beats with a roommate from Church. I wanted to pick a special, first anime to watch together with her. I thought of this one. She loved Angel Beats.
