Best Girl 2016 is a year-long multi-divisional single-elimination bracket-style tournament (Wow, that’s a lot of hyphens…) that will determine the absolute best girl in anime for 2016.
The rules are simple:
To be eligible, a character must have appeared in an anime series, movie, OVA/ONA, or short that premiered sometime during 2016. The girls will be matched up based on the season their respective works premiered, and the Round 1 match-ups in each division will be set by the hosts. The winner of each match will be determined by your votes.
At the end of the year, the Winter Division champion will face the Spring Division Champion, and the Summer Division champion will face the Fall Division champion. The winners of these two semi-final matches will face each other in the final to determine the best girl of 2016.
So, that’s it. Now go forth and let your voice be heard! Click below to go to each Division’s page to see the contestants and to vote in the latest poll.
