Colorseum: Season Three start + special bonus battle!

Last week's result:
Mamoru Miyano [20] - [7] Troy Baker

The champion of Colorseum's Summer Special round is Mamoru Miyano! Congratulations! I'm sure nobody expected that at all :D
You can view the finals bracket here.

Congrats to Mina for winning the bonus crayon lottery!

Welcome back, Colors players. Once again, it's me, Elizabeth. Have you missed me? I am here to host the most amazing battle tournament in existence - the Colorseum!
Don't worry, no one will get hurt, at least as long as I don't want them to... The battles will not be decided by strength or strategy, but rather by the ability to win the crowd's hearts! And the judges... will be you!

Want more details? My pleasure!
- Each 'round' will consist of 5 'sub-rounds', posted weekly. They will be First Round A, First Round B, Quarter-finals, Semi-finals and the Final!
- Each round will have a theme - they work in a similar way to the Scrapbook things you use here.
- Each round will have 16 characters from various series fighting in one-on-one battles, in a form of a knockout tournament.
- You decide who will advance to the next round by casting your votes.
- The votes are unscreened, and every player participating will get the same prizes, regardless of the final results! That means you can always vote for the characters YOU like the most!
- Feel free to try to convince other players to vote for your favourites! Bribery, threats - anything goes!
- I will always vote last, just before closing the round. If two characters are tied after that, the one with the higher seed advances to the next round.
- During the final battle of each round, you will be able to suggest who you want to participate in the next one!

But... before we get to Season Three and its battles, we have to find us some contestants, don't we? Please help me with this.
However, to keep you entertained, we'll also hold a very special battle this week!


(season 1 winner) Riza Hawkeye (Fullmetal Alchemist) versus (season 2 winner) Elizabeth (Persona)

Oh my, what an amazing matchup! It may be just a friendly game with no real prize, but I'm still incredibly excited!


During this week, you can nominate characters for the first round of the new season! Here's how it works:
- you can nominate up to 4 characters, each fitting the theme stated below
- if you try to nominate more than 4 characters, I will only count the first 4
- the order of nominations doesn't matter
- if you want your nominations to be valid, you MUST include the characters' full names and series
- it doesn't matter if you nominate 1,2,3 or 4, the prize is still the same
- your characters must come from East Asian media (same as for characters you can donate)
- there is no additional limit on characters from the same series in your nomination
- this is only a suggestion, but try to nominate characters who aren't very obscure, so that they stand some chance in the tournament
- once a character has taken part in any of the tournaments of this season, they may not be nominated to another one until the next one begins. This does not apply to characters who won their rounds - they are retired from our game for good.
- you cannot nominate a character from a series that already had a winner in this season (none so far).
- for future rounds: if you nominate a character from a series that has a participant in the final and they happen to win, the nomination for that character will not count.

After this week, 16 characters competing in the next round will be selected
- I will usually choose 16 characters who receive the most nominations
- However, there will be a limit of 1 character per canon (and 2 characters per multi-universe franchise, like Tales or Final Fantasy)
- I can disqualify a character if I believe they don't fit the requirements or theme of the round
- The characters will receive seed numbers (1-16) based on the number of nominations they got. This will decide their places on the tournament ladder.
- In case of ties, I will decide the participants and/or their seeds myself

Now, let's get to the topic of the next round...
It's police and detectives! Underground battles may be illegal, but for a moment we might overlook it. I'm sure those people will help us find the mastermind behind this case.

You can vote using this from, though it is not mandatory.

For voting, you will get four random cards. For nominating any number of characters, you will get four more cards, making it a total of eight random cards.
You can totally vote without nominating anyone for the next round (or the other way around).
Remember, the prizes are the same for everyone, no matter who wins the battles! So vote for your favourites, not the characters you 'expect' to win.
There will also be a bonus prize of two random crayons for one random, lucky participant.

You can look at results of all the battles so far below!
Round 1 - Royalty | Round 2 - Scientists | Round 3 - Green hair | Round 4 - Androids and robots | Round 5 - Sports | Round 6 - Student Council | Round 7 - Musicians | Round 8 - Gunners | Round 9 - Season One finale
Round 10 - Deities | Round 11 - Mecha pilots | Round 12 - White hair | Round 13 - Old characters | Round 14 - Best of 2015 | Round 15 - Villains | Round 16 - Buff Guys | Round 17 - Busty Girls | Round 18 - Season Two finale
East-F | East-M | West-F | West-M | Finals

This round will close on September 24th CLOSED!, Central European time!
