I've been thinking of trying to set up a new OMCB for 2018. We used to do them once a year a while back and I think it would be fun to do a new one. Since quite a few old series have ended and some new series have come out since the last one. Me and @Echo were thinking organizing it. 


I don't know if I'd want to do any themes, or do a Lightweight vs Heavyweight style one again, and instead just do a normal one. Although I'd be open to doing something different if most want that, but I was thinking of doing a basic one where members can nominate a certain number of characters from any anime/manga and I'd randomly put them in a large bracket style tournament and the ones people like more will win. So it is basically a popularity contest like they all have been. 


I'm thinking that members can nominate up to 10 characters which would fill out the bracket even if we don't get a lot of members nominating, and of course the previous characters that won old OMCBs would still be exempt from the new OMCB. I think those characters were Edward Elric, Zoro, Kenshin, Luffy and Roy Mustang. Any other manga or anime character would be fine to nominate.

Yes! Let's go!


I think those characters were Edward Elric, Zoro, Kenshin, Luffy and Roy Mustang.

These are the finals I remember:
1. Edward (Fullmetal Alchemist) > Luffy (One Piece)
2. Zoro (One Piece) > Luffy (One Piece)
3. Kenshin (Rorouni Kenshin) > CC (Code Geass)
4. Toph (Avatar) > Gin (Bleach)
5. Zoro (One Piece) > Roy (Fullmetal Alchemist)
6. Roy (Fullmetal Alchemist) > Gintoki (Gintama)

I was just seeing if anyone had any big input for this thread. I'll probably have a separate thread for nominations just to keep things a bit more organized, and I'll probably make a form wide announcement thing too. I'll probably set up the nomination thread shortly. 



I think that in the 2nd one Zoro beat Miria (Claymore) in the finals, I believe Echo still has the image they used for that match up, and in the 5th one Luffy beat Roy. Since Luffy was exempt from the one I set up in 2014 because he won before. 


I forgot about the Toph one. I think that was the year Sena allowed all sorts of characters from all different mediums? I remember one year it got super messy. I'd like to keep this one Manga/Anime focused, but maybe I could open it up to more if some users really want it. I think in the last one I did we allowed Avatar characters.

It'll be nice to see this come back. How about a Tag-Team/ Duo Tournament?



Goku and Vegeta

Naruto and Sasuke

Edward and Alphonse Elric

Hawkeye and Mustang

Maka and Soul

Vash and Wolfwood

Gon and Killua


As examples.

I wouldn't mind doing a duo/tag-team tournament too if people want. I think I still want to do a normal one like we've done in the past. Once all the characters are nominated it can move pretty fast so there should be time to do more. 


I could run them at the same time but that might get confusing.
