It's a bracket, and it's won in every single round.  I'm not seeing a problem.  Also, popularity contests is pretty much want any of these types of competitions comes down to being.  I in fact prefer the more transparent nature of a contest such as this compared to battle threads we'd find on this site.
 
Also, while the Shounen-filled roster is both expected and depressing for a mainstream poll, seeing Captain Harlock make it for more than one round is a pleasant surprsing

I'd say any Shounen title with enough pull in the west on a general level to be in there is in there.

There's a reason why I said their presence on that bracket is expected.

Have you ever had the opportunity to play the role of king maker in a game?  Someone who won't win, but held the key to other players being in first place?  You can court favors from everyone, and be as spiteful as you wish because you have no more stake.  That kind of power is pretty great.

@Turambar: agree...

In-freakin'-deed. Most of these battles are either completely out of spite or totally ridiculous. -___-

I still believe this is out of popularity. However a couple things in this shocked me a little. Goku getting knocked out early(by Manga Batman!?), and Utena and Rick Hunter going as far as they did.
