And Persona 3 is on the board, with the poppy and beautiful “Memories of You”. Of course, Persona 4 refuses to be outdone by its older sister, putting yet another song safely into the playoffs; depending on your definition of “safely” this is either P4’s 3rd or 4th song in. At this rate runoffs are in its future. Elsewhere, surprise favorite Ar tonelico continues to impress.


It’s time for group play! We have 1,358 songs this time; we’re trying out 24-song groups this time, so we have 56 groups of 24, plus a 57th of 14. For the group stage, vote for as many songs as you like! Songs will be ranked based on how many upvotes they got compared to how many people voted in that round. 1 After all groups are done, the top 384 songs from across all groups will advance to the playoffs.

…unless! After group play, but before the playoffs proper, there will be a wild card runoff! If an individual game places more than 10 songs into the top 384, songs 11+ per game will face off against songs 385+2 in a play-in round.

We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 9 will be active until Friday January 22nd at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 8 will be active until 10:00PM tonight; vote here. Group 10 will start Friday and be active until Sunday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.
