Welcome everyone to the Tsundere Tournament! Due to renewed interests in the old Tsundere match ups I made last year, Vapovile suggests making a tournament like Dream's Anime/ Manga Villains Tournament Voting Thread and WayBig1010101's AMV Tournament Election.

Vapovile and I are in charge of this tournament.

Here we go!

Rules

Our goal is 16.

  • You can nominate up to 2 characters from 1994-2014.
  • It has to be a girl. I know there are male tsundere out there, but for the time being, we're doing a tournament for the ladies first.
  • There can only be a maximum of 2 characters per franchise.
  • After the nominations, we will either randomize the choices to make things interesting.

Voting Rules

  • We will be posting a new matchup every 2-4 days, depending on how close the matches are.
  • Vote for who you think is the best tsundere of that round.
  • In the event of a tie, Taka and I will trade off deciding which of us will break that tie.
  • Have fun!

That's pretty much it. If you're a beginner to anime and haven't been familiar with the concept of tsundere, our mod, Dream, has this useful defintion,.

There are two variants of tsundere portrayed in most instances in anime. The "tsun tsun" variety puts up a tough, strong and sometimes hostile front, but has a gentle and loving side that they show only for their "special person". The "dere dere" variety has a more kind and generous personality on the surface, but can become aggressive and angry in certain situations that involve their "person of interest." However, there are occasions where there are tsundere characters that don't follow these particular setups of the tsundere archetype (Madoka Ayukawa and Hitagi Senjougohara as examples) that follow a more natural or unique take on the character archetype.

Thank you everyone for your support. Please nominate and have fun!

I was going to pin this to the Tsundere concept page, but it's better to pin it to the general discussion forum since that is the 2nd most visited forum in Anime Vice.

@waybig1010101: @hitsusatsu11:

Thank you, I'll add them. I'll try to make the OP more pretty. Adding images is still a pain in this site.

@Vapovile:

Thanks for letting me know I missed something. I updated the list with some cool images! If you notice there are a lot of Christmas profile portraits, blame Daniel Newton's Christmas project.

@Bigheart711:

Thanks! WayBig already nominated Haruhi. I'll add the other two to my list when I get home. I'm sorry for the late reply. It would have best if Vapo created the thread not me, so we can both edit the threads.

@Gojira1234:

Thank you.

Okay, I finished updating the list. We will no longer accept any more nominees. My partner Vapovile will handle the randomization.

Thank you everyone. Sorry, I got distracted by the Kill la Kill English Dub Event (See Aniplex USA's Live Stream of Kill la Kill English Dub Cast)

Gaaah, where the hell is Kurisu from Stein's Gate?! 0_0

I'd vote for Haruhi and Bulma in the meantime...

so do we vote for the best character that is a Tsundere or do we just vote for whoever is the best at being a Tsundere?

@waybig1010101: @GIRUGAMESH:

Oh, sorry guys we will be making an actual voting thread where we will randomize the matches and actually pit specific girls against each other. Both Taka and I have been busy with finals and stuff, but we will be starting this soon :D.

@Vapovile: damn i recently finish my school year, so i don't have to worry about school work in till the end of the summer, but anyway I hope you guys do well on your final exams. As for the voting process i guess that you were going to make a thread with a random list, but you still haven't answer my question.

Since WayBig's AMV Tournament 2 is picking steam, it's time to start this off. Vapovile had already randomized the opponents. He's busy right now. I have my own projects, but I can juggle this one. It's better to start this now.

My partner has the introductions for the characters. He'll come by later.

I'll put videos up.

Bulma

Bulma is a genius inventor at the Capsule Corporation and inventor of the Dragon Radar. She met Goku and together they began the journey for the Dragon Balls.

Asuka Langley Soryu

Asuka Langley Soryu is the Second Child and pilot of EVA Unit-02. She's a child-prodigy who was raised from a young age to be an Eva pilot.

Edit:

The finals will be voted via Gdoc. For the preliminaries and semi-finals, they will be voted in the thread itself. Vapo and I decided to reveal the combatants match by match to keep the suspense up.

I apologize for dragging this tournament. We were pretty busy.
