Anime Character Showdown!
Where Characters Battle For Ultimate Glory
Welcome to the third edition of the Anime Character Showdown. This is where your beloved animated characters will fight for the ultimate glory... No matter how unique, strong, cute or beautiful... Everyone is the same in front of your eyes!
Let's start the third showdown and our first special. The Most Violent Anime edition!
Here are the nomination rules:
- Any member of MangaHelpers can nominate one Anime for the showdown by posting in this thread and explaining why said Anime should participate in the showdown. Please post a link to a picture from the Anime you’re nominating.
- The nomination period will close once a fixed amount of time has passed. The showdown will then begin right away.
The voting rules:
- You can only vote for 1 Anime, so choose wisely.
- The voting will be done by voting in a poll.
- We’ll have 2 rounds, the first round will last 48 hours, so the voting period will be of 48 hours and the final round will last 72 hours.
- Only the 3 Anime with the most votes will make it to the final round until finally one will be crowned as the absolute winner of the showdown. In case of a tie, we’ll have another round to break the tie.
- If only 3 Anime are nominated after the nomination period has passed, we will start with the final round right away.
- As soon as the first round has ended, it will be closed. After that I will reveal / count the votes and then I'll start the final round with the Anime that have proceeded.
- You’re more than welcome to discuss the Anime participating in the showdown.
-Please don’t bash the character a member nominates nor bash the person who nominates said character. This is for fun! <3~
- And please remember, the forum rules also apply to this thread.
- Rules will be edited as necessary.
- End of the Nomination period: [1am CET] November 4, 2013.
Yes, Hellsing (2001) and Hellsing Ultimate will each receive separate nominations. We shall provide poll options for both.
I nominate Shigurui, well, because it is one of the most violent animes
Just one example of many

I nominate Yondemasuyo Azazel-san for a really out there example. (Don't click the link if you don't like blood.)
Moderator message by: AsariiIf an image or video has gore in it, make sure to put it under a spoiler cut or give a warning just to be safe. Some people are okay with some things but not with others.
I nominate Elfen Lied ..

The TV series definitely counts. Better than the movies.
Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan
The most bloody random show ever. I don't even know if I should link those pictures / videos here, just look it up on YouTube (watching the short 20-second clips will do.)
Don't click if you find internal organs disgusting, lol:
Edit: Here's a less gory pic for nomination purposes:

Good. Elfen Lied is always the knee jerk first series named when discussing violent anime. It's nice to see something else win.
Awesome.I voted for Hellsing on the second round. I'm glad the series won .
