Stray observations:

  • We got 4 whole ties last round. It was nuts. Psmith broke the ties, deciding on Roger Smith, Captain Harlock, Yomiko Readman, and Aoi Miyamori
  • Lelouch losing shows that simply being the most elaborate protagonist does not necessarily mean you’re the best
  • Mob losing proves you guys hate good boys

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