#Anime Vice Polls & Contests » AVWP Week #1: Swimsuit Contest!

@Supreme Marvel: That doesn't really help! Good to know though, I guess. I thought Saeko would be popular from the beginning, I just wanted Urabe to do well. Of course poor Eris hasn't had any votes at all!

@Supreme Marvel: Are you genuinely confused or just being snarky because Saeko's winning? :P

Damn, I was hoping Urabe would be the dark horse of this poll. I wonder if I can drum up some extra votes before this thing ends...

MGX fans, Assemble! - you guys haven't voted in this thing yet, right? (Come on, it's a bit of harmless fun.) We could get Urabe into the runner-up bracket! Unless you vote for someone else, of course.

@Everyone - Voting for this bracket ends on Friday!

They are alright choice but there's like more female characters in nice swimsuit that I like.

What no Nami or Juvia love, flip table in anger :)

This contest is now part of a bigger tournament, if you want to nominate characters to be included in it you can do that here.

Saeko is my first choice. 2 of the characters I don't even know. But my second choice would be the current leader, Erza.

I thought it would be between those two for you, and don't worry, of course you aren't expected to know all the characters.

I have a funny feeling the other Saeko vote came ...call it an educated guess.

I have no idea why I went with Misty.

Everyone loves a tomboy, even if they won't admit it. Urabe managed to win my vote though, now I'm just waiting for the other Mysterious Girlfriend X fans to come out of the woodwork. I know there are a few of them around here...

@DBZ_universe said:

I choose Erza! Her Seduction armor says it all.

Hey! Focus on the swimsuits used in the contest! The seduction armor is almost an unfair advantage, ha.

@ShadowKnight508 said:

Hmm...interesting choices.

I tried to go for a bit of variety, and there were actually ten contestants to begin with, but I thought that was a bit much. That said, if this poll is popular enough I could put another one together for next week. Let me know what kinds of polls you want to see here.

#Anime Vice Polls & Contests » AVWP Week #1: Sub vs. Dub!

The age-old debate; subbed anime vs. dubbed anime! What's your preference?

Personally I mostly watch subbed anime because:

  1. Japanese sounds awesome
  2. It's the most "real" or "true" experience (next to learning to actually speak/understand Japanese)
  3. Lots of dubs are bad for one reason or another (voice acting, script, etc.)

Still, there are a few dubs I think are fantastic. The one I always mention is Dragon Ball Z Kai. Some people don't like it because some of the voices aren't the ones they remember from the older Z dubs, but the quality of voice acting is magnitudes higher, the script is worlds better and I personally find the new voices fine. Frieza is much more menacing.

#Anime Vice Polls & Contests » AVWP Week #1: Chibi, Yay or Nay?

Tom has made it clear in his recent Magi Special Review, and other previous articles, that he would be happy to live in a world without chibi. How do you feel about chibi?

Personally, I can take it or leave it. I think there are many cases where it works fine and some cases where an anime might have been better without it, but mostly, I have no problem with it.
