Stray Observations:

  • We have a few love interest pairs on here, so we can hopefully look forward to at least one pair duking it out for best lover
  • Spike and Usagi both did very well, taking the first and second seed, so they’re the two to watch
  • Counted over 190 entries. Definitely more than I expected

Please refrain from posting until I’ve gotten all the rounds up. Thanks 😀
