Will there be a forum theme and user banner for the character who wins?

This is a question that goes to the admins so I’m tagging @Marco Polo. I dunno if this is the place to discuss it but he’ll let you know! ^_^ Please don’t forget to vote if you haven’t already. Though there’s still plenty of time. (The really popular characters have banners and the Straw Hats are all in the original forum theme...). Nice idea though!

I am in the process of making my list. I need to think it over before I post it.

Totally understandable. Ranking is super difficult for me. And you have plenty of time!

I mean... I like Jimbei but I don’t like Jimbei. I like the things they’ve done with Sanji in the story but there’s things about his character that I can’t stand.

This all reflects on Oda as a writer and the problems in values, etc that are being reflected in the characters themselves. There’s so much grey area. I love the complexities in the story. It makes it difficult to do things simply though. And ranking implies that some traits are better than others which I don’t really believe so I’ll participate but it’s going to be more of a top ten grouping than a legitimate rankings list in my case. :shrug: I’ll probably write a book about it here. Or maybe not. We’ll see.

Good luck with your decision making.

Good question. The official answer is, we haven’t decided yet. I’ll put it forward to the design boys for sure!

You can edit your vote right up until the submission deadline, by the way.

Voting for 10 is so difficult, I chose probably the less surprising characters as it seems, wahah

But I have a hunch I already posted such a list in the past... should check it out :minglul: (maybe it was listing of sth else :shrug: )

I literally had to backtrack to double check that I didn't miss a page of responses! The voting will probably be null since I don't think it's fair to take the first from each category. Making the hard decisions is the whole point to me. It's all personal preference, and thus the "unnecessary defending" (per my bias) can occur here. Half my list is "I like XYZ about this character". It's easier to rank the people that are still mysteries because we can imagine and fill in the stuff we want to see/project in them.

Yup! I thought I had my top 7, maybe 9ish set, but typing out people I would be willing to put in at 10 made me think I could easily change over half my list and I'd still be happy about it.

Totally fine to change! The plot is constantly developing. So especially how we see the Mugiwara crew especially can completely change. To each their own. I mean, that's the entire purpose of the popularity poll that it is a completely biased ranking of character "value". Whether it is plot related, or as simple as the character design, all that matters is why we like them.

I really feel like I'm going to be typing this part over and over again in this thread...


Back to the blind Oda faith (until the next B.S. of course).

My point is that ranking is a crappy thing in the first place because having a top means that you have a bottom. But I’ll participate because I like to support the forum. I’m just anti-ranking in general. I’ve preached this one over and over again. ^_^

I made this thread so that people can talk about their choices though.

Damn, so many characters to think off. I think I voted for the characters that made the most impact on me. That includes Kaido :sweating:
