Voting time is up. Looks like Orochimaru and Light will face off in the next round. Time for the next set of matches:
Being the Greek lord of the underworld, this man was an old enemy of Athena's who desires to wipe out humanity and turn the Earth into a wasteland. One of the strongest characters in his title, this man could fend off against several Saints at once suffering little damage and is capable of sending any of his specters to the living world while he remains in the underworld. Every 243 years, he is allowed to enter the living world by using the living body of the purest human alive as a host and facing off against Athena to compete for the planet's fate. This is Saint Seiya's Hades.
And his opponent...
This powerful witch desires to create a world of complete stasis where nothing changes or evolves. A manipulative woman with a love for the suffering of others, she is responsible for torturing and manipulating her son Crona into becoming a fearsome killer and creating Black Blood, an artificial blood cell that grants its user heightened powers at the cost of their soul succumbing to madness. Her hatred of change is such that she resurrected the powerful Kishin known as Asura in order to advance her plans. This is Soul Eater's Medusa Gorgon.
This violent and manipulative man is a powerful threat due to both his abilities as a vampire and his Stand, The World's, ability to freeze time, allowing him to move about freely to evade a foe's attacks or to attack his helpless foe. He is at odds with his adoptive brother, Jonathan Joestar, over their family's fortune and makes attempts at killing Jonathan to claim it. His selfish desires to claim the fortune are such that he manipulates others into fighting Jonathan and gave up his humanity using the power of an artifact called the Stone Mask to gain his powers as a vampire. This is Jojo's Bizarre Adventure's Dio Brando.
And his opponent...
This monstrous-looking man is the leader of his own personal group of pirates known as the Blackbeard Pirates. A former member of the Whitebeard Pirates, this man betrayed the group by killing one of their commanders to gain possession of the Yami Yami no Mi, a Devil Fruit that grants the one who consumes it control over darkness. A very deceptive and power-hungry individual, this man manipulated the powerful pirate group called the Shichibukai into their ranks so he could gather more allies into his group and led the Whitebeard Pirate Ace to his death. This is One Piece's Blackbeard.
Voting will end on either Friday or Saturday. Have fun voting!
Can't vote for Saint Seiya since I don't really know him and his evil deeds.
Having seen both Jojo and One Piece, I'll go with Dio.
Spoiler Alert for Blackbeard
Thanks. The series is getting popular because of the new Stardust anime that came out this Spring Season '14. With it being legally streamed for the first time (via Crunchyroll), more folks are watching it. Tom can only review shows that are legally out, so the W & L articles are going fine. Shame that he and Sam didn't like Toriko. That's okay, Toriko has its hit or miss with folks. At least, we got a Toriko Roundtable to show there are folks who love the show and give a different opinion.
With the wiki editing and battle threads going on, I wouldn't be surprise if Jojo will be the next big thing in this community after Toriko.
Voting time is up. Looks like Medusa and Dio will advance and face off against one another in the next round. Time for the next set of matches:
The CEO of Revocs Corporation and mother of apparent series antagonist Satsuki, this woman conspires to use the power of Life Fibers to take over the world and enslave humanity to them. Having infused her own body with the threads, she is capable of regenerating her body, has superhuman attributes and can use the Life Fibers in her body to take control of her foes. A vain and cruel woman who bathes herself in luxury, she is known to sexually molest her daughters and has no regard for human life in her commitment to have the planet dominated by Life Fibers. This is Kill la Kill's Ragyo Kiryuin.
And her opponent...
A former ally and possible lover of the powerful psychic Genkai, this man sacrificed his humanity in exchange for the power of a demon after he slayed the demon responsible for the slaughter of his students. A tall and muscular man, this man is capable of regulating how much of his demonic power is released and has monstrous strength as such that he can easily lift the large tournament ring used for the Dark Tournament at just a fraction of his full power. Serving as a hired thug for various criminal organizations for decades, this man manipulated events so he would force Yusuke Urameshi and several of his allies to compete in the Dark Tournament as he desires to test Yusuke's abilities in combat. This is Yuyu Hakusho's Younger Toguro.
Serving as the first major enemy faced by Team Dai-Gurren, this man is the creator of the Beastmen forces that wrecked havoc on humanity and forced much of the human populace to live underground as a result. Having each of his Supreme Generals confront the group, this man eventually finds himself being forced to personally handle the threat of Simon and Dai-Gurren on his own. Having his own personal Gunman mecha known as Lazengann, this man also possesses superhuman-level attributes as such where he was capable of facing off against Simon's Lagann mech with just his bare hands. This is Gurren Lagann's Lordgenome.
And his opponent...
This crazed serial killer has a large fetish for women's hands, as such where he is known to sever the hands of his female victims and keep them as “girlfriends” until they begin to rot from decomposure. He acquires the Stand known as Killer Queen from his desire to dispose of any incriminating evidence, with Killer Queen allowing him to cleanly and completely obliterate objects with targeted explosions. He eventually finds himself at odds with Josuke Higashikata and several of his friends when the young man is able to deduce this killer's involvement with the murders he committed. This is Jojo's Bizarre Adventure's Yoshikage Kira.
Voting will end on either Monday or Tuesday. Have fun voting!
