Now it’s time to start paying attention

I wonder how many of the people who read my blog are paying attention to The Aniblog Tourney. I’m guessing there’s a load of you who visited when I first mentioned it, then quickly lost interest. Well now it’s time to start paying attention. As the tourney enters Round 3, most of the deadwood has been cut and what we’re left with is 32 high quality blogs duking it out for the top spot. For the readers of the tourney, this is the ideal position to be in. Remember the main aim of the tourney is for readers to find new anime blogs they might not have read before. There’s a lot better chance of your finding a good quality anime blog now that we’ve reached Round 3.

And since you’re visiting that site anyway, would you mind giving me a vote in my match-up? I’m up against the number 1 seed, the might of the Sea Slugs team. Now since I was the one who created the tourney it would be a total disaster if I somehow managed to beat them (oh great, more conspiracy theories flying at how the tourney was all one big scheme to drive traffic to my blog). I’m looking for something respectable, like a 52% – 48% loss, maybe taking the lead with a day left in the polls just to give them a scare.

Oh, and while you’re at it, vote in the other poll too. I really mean it when I say that there’s some real high quality blogs on display today.

Finally, since losing to Sea Slugs requires you to submit fanart of their mascot, I hired Stella to do it for me. Presenting Nama-ko~!

    Aw, good job, Stella!
    She’s so proud of her work. ;)

    I am definitely excited for these match-ups. Writing up this round was fun. Da da da~

      Because endless copypasting is fun!

        No, that part wasn’t fun. But seeing the match-ups was fun!

    Good jobbu, Stella. Looks exactly like Nama-ko.

    On an unrelated note, mef’s avatar on this theme looks simply love ♥ (there you go, my ego)

      I’ve always liked the bigger avatars this theme gives you. No longer do the avatars look like colorful blobs

    Is Nama-ko the one on the right?

      Don’t you dare compare Stella to Nama-ko. Stella kicks ass and drinks cups of tea. Nama-ko has chips in her hair. Clearly one is better than the other

    Wait, why is Stella drawing a picture FOR you? Shouldn’t you be drawing a picture for HER (because Stella owns all)? Unless, of course, you were raised in some other militia orphanage that trumps Sister’s little Monster here…

      I tricked her into drawing it. Obviously she wouldn’t draw it for me if I asked her directly

    Lol great screencap moment; I didn’t even think of the possibilities it offers xD

      Screencap? That never happened in the anime. I got Stella to do that for me

    That picture needs to be made into a new banner for the ss site. I’d probably laugh so hard i’d suffer a hernia but it’d be worth it.

      Also is it a coincidence that you’ve given Nama-ko shark eyes? xD

      • Scamp

        The shark eyes are there because I am Stella isn’t very good at drawing. Although I’d love if this pic came up on the banner. Maybe as an April Fools?

    I’m still not sure who I want to vote for yet, but having Stella on your side helps. She’s scary!

      Vote for me or Stella will rip out your eye

      …oh wait

    I see how it is! I’m just deadwood to the world! And to think I still voted for you x)
    I think I might have to go cry some dragon-tears….

      Yup. All deadwood knocked out already. Like Behind the Nihon Review and Blogsuki. Clearly only deadwood ;)

    I voted for you and lemme thank the AniTourney for introducing some new interesting reading material for me. At least there’s some good that comes out of it.

      Well that was the main aim. We’ll improve on it when we run it again in two years time. Yup, heard it first here. Two years time is when I plan to run the tourney again

    Your blog is one of blogs I discovered and liked because of this tournament so you get my vote.

    Today’s match-up reminded me that there’s 33 blogs in this round not 32 ;)

      Oh yah, 33 blogs. Would have been 34 if I continued my fuck up from the last round. Sorry about all that. That was all my mistake :(

      But hey, I got a new reader so all’s cool~!
