The 2018 OneManga Character Battle is now finished and since I enjoyed running it I would be open to doing more tournament style battles if people are interested. I would want to do something different from the normal character battles that we do, and I have a few ideas of some potiental options.
Option 1: My first idea, and the one I'm most interested in, would be to do some kind of Favorite Anime/Manga Moments style tournament. The format would be the same as the OMCB tournaments but instead of characters it would be your favorite moments or scenes from an anime or manga, which could be anything from emotional, funny, badass, or crazy moments that you enjoyed for whatever reason. So things like the first time Goku goes SSJ, Luffy and the Strawhats declaring war on the World Government, and so on. To focus things a bit more I don't think I'd want to include full fights as moments, but specific moments from fights would be okay obviously.
The only problem with this idea for a tournament is the possibility of spoilers for people. So I'd have to have to make spoiler warnings obvious to try and avoid someone spoiling a big moment in a series they were planning on reading or watching.
Option 2: It would be similar to the first option and it would be Favorite Fights from anime/manga instead of moments. I think moments allows for more creativity in the options members can pick, but if some want full fights instead of specific moments from fights this would be that type of tournament.
Option 3: Another idea would be to do something closer to the normal OMCB but have it be about a specific category like Villains or Side Characters. This would be easy to do and I think in the past we have done something similar. Or open up a normal OMCB and focus on non-anime/manga characters, but that could get messy.
If anyone has any other ideas I'd be open to suggestions.
