    ARE YOU READY?!

    All right! The mods have just given me the list! Here we go! [name omitted] had an unique way of drawing it.

    My process was I took 16 songs on Spotify and indiscriminately assigned them to a character. Then I put them all in a playlist and Shuffle Played that playlist. This was the result:

    Hidden:
    "Started from the Bottom" by Drake (Ryuunosuke) vs. "Feel Good Inc." by Gorillaz (Galdino)
    "Roxanne" by The Police (Carrot) vs. "Helplessness Blues" by Fleet Foxes (Monkey D. Garp)
    "Hold On, We're Going Home" by Drake (Monkey D. Luffy) vs. "Counting Stars" by One Republic (Vinsmoke Sanji)
    "Wake Up Call" by Maroon 5 (Pekoms) vs. "Savior" by Rise Against (Bellemere)
    "I'm on My Way" by The Proclaimers (Nekomamushi) vs. "Raise Your Glass" by Pink (Tom)
    "Breakeven" by The Script (Donquixote Rosinante) vs. "Grenade" by Bruno Mars (Jinbe)
    "Paradise" by Coldplay (Franky) vs. "Falling Slowly" by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (Koala)
    "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins (Brook) vs. "Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men (Nami)




    Oh fine fine, for those who want the tl;dr version of the matches:
    Hidden:

    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino
    Carrot vs. Garp
    Luffy vs. Sanji
    Pekoms vs. Bellemere
    Nekomamushi vs. Tom
    Rosinante vs. Jinbe
    Franky vs. Koala
    Brook vs. Nami

    yeouch... 4 Strawhats and this round will eliminate 2 of them as it is crewmate vs crewmate!

    My personal picks:
    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino


    Drawing meme is getting stale. Let the main players win. :)

    Carrot vs. Garp
    Carrot sweeped her last opponent and she's been in the spotlight. Garp really doesn't stand a chance.

    Luffy vs. Sanji
    Y E A R O F S A N J I

    Pekoms vs. Bellemere

    Pekoms has the advantage but I still want to vote for the marine mom
    Nekomamushi vs. Tom
    Same deal, Neko has the advantage. (wow, two Minks against flashback parents?)

    Rosinante vs. Jinbe
    Y E A R O F J I N B E
    Franky vs. Koala
    Can Koala win this one? Maaybe.

    Brook vs. Nami
    This might be a very close match, and it doesn't help both Straw Hats are involved in the current arc. If Nami wins this, I will push my efforts for a Nami vs. Sanji/Jinbei final. If not, Sanji or Jinbei for champion.

    I assume the songs used have something to do with the characters.
    Oh well, here is my possible votes (yada yada, "it can change due to campaigns" yada yada)
    Hidden:
    Ryuunosuke vs. GaldinoCarrot vs. Garp
    Luffy vs. Sanji
    Pekoms vs. Bellemere
    Nekomamushi vs. Tom
    Rosinante vs. Jinbe
    Franky vs. Koala
    Brook vs. Nami

    Aww yes.


    Year of Ryuunosuke everyone!

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Its quite unexpected, refreshing and a delight to see Mr 3 making it so far into the tournament by the way.

    Nice to see some love towards Baroque Works and minor villains. But I am still rooting for Ryuu.

    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino - Ryuu is great and Galdino knocked out Rayleigh >:V

    Carrot vs. Garp - YOU HEARTLESS MONSTER HOW COULD YOU

    Luffy vs. Sanji - Sanji hasn't done enough for me yet even though its his year.

    Pekoms vs. Bellemere - Hiruluk's spirit lives on in best mom

    Nekomamushi vs. Tom - This is tough, but probably Tom since he'll get slaughtered

    Rosinante vs. Jinbe - Also tough. Maybe Rosi.

    Franky vs. Koala - Koala against former champion. Eeeeeaassssssyyyy

    Brook vs. Nami - at least one of these will move on

    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino - I blame this on my recent rewatch of Impel Down and Marineford.

    Carrot vs. Garp - The fetish still lives...

    Luffy vs. Sanji - I'm kinda indifferent towards this match.

    Pekoms vs. Bellemere - I'll wait for the campaigns.

    Nekomamushi vs. Tom - Still the best flashback character (Cora-san and Saul are a close second).

    Rosinante vs. Jinbe - My love for this fish is greater than a tsunami!

    Franky vs. Koala - Probably because I wanna see a Koala vs. Jinbei match.

    Brook vs. Nami - You can't beat the skull jokes, Yohohoho!

    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino - I nominated him, I stuck with him. He can do it
    Carrot vs. Garp - this is a toughie but I want to see Carrot go farther.
    Luffy vs. Sanj -Y E A R O F S A N J I
    Pekoms vs. Bellemere - Campaigns are gonna decide this one
    Neko vs. Tom - Campaigns again. Leaning a little towards Tom though
    Rosinante vs. Jinbe - T H E F I S H I S F R E S H
    Franky vs. Koala - Another undecided...
    Brook vs. Nami - help ;-;

    So somehow my boy Galdino won against Rayleigh AND Big Mam, both very, very impressive opponents...but I think this may be the final straw since he's against Ryuunosuke, the dark horse of this tournament, I am concerned...

    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino - Last of my three favourite characters still in the tournament. It doesn't matter who he's against, I'll be voting for this underrated character. It's the YEAR OF SAN, G.
    Carrot vs. Garp - Carrot is easily one of the best female characters already. She'll win handily regardless, she's definitely a serious contender this year.
    Luffy vs. Sanji - Black Leg has always been a character I've liked...he's fallen on tough times recently(what with the flanderization to being just a perv) but I'm pretty invested in seeing his family's story and his new flashback in it's entirity. <br>Pekoms vs. Bellemere - I'm undecided...
    Neko vs. Tom - Tom is one of my favourite flashback characters...
    Rosinante vs. Jinbe - ...and so is Corazon, but I really like Jinbe. Help please! <br>Franky vs. Koala - Franky's won a tournament before, but Koala hasn't really done enough to make me vote against my second favourite Strawhat.
    Brook vs. Nami - Nami. Sorry Brook, I know you did well to best Buggy, but Nami is just much more fleshed out. YOHOHOHO!

    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino
    Carrot
    vs. Garp
    Luffy vs. Sanji
    Pekoms vs. Bellemere
    Nekomamushi vs. Tom
    Rosinante vs. Jinbe
    Franky vs. Koala
    Brook vs. Nami

    Rough round for the SHs. The two favorites (imo), Carrot and Neko, should take easy victories. It really hurts to see Luffy vs. Sanji. I wanted both to go deeper. I'll take Sanji though as it is the year of Sanji, he has never won, and is truly underrated.

    Luffy vs. Sanji, Rocinante vs. Jimbei, and Brook vs. Nami? This is just getting painful, especially with the former two matches there.

    Why can't people I don't like have bad match-ups?

    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino
    IT'S THE CLIMB
    Carrot vs. Garp
    Carrot is a weapon of mass destruction that needs to be stopped!
    Luffy vs. Sanji
    Pekoms vs. Bellemere
    Pekoms' survival rate after getting shot is a lot more impressive than Bellemere's; Also if I hear best mom one more time...
    Rosinante vs. Jinbe

    Forgot about Franky there. So 2 will get to next round, maybe 3.

    My picks

    Ryuunosuke vs. Galdino Galdino has more personality.
    Carrot vs. Garp - like them both, I'm leaning towards Garp, may be swayed by campaigns, then again, that may secure Garp's vote.
    Luffy vs. Sanji - tough one I'll wait for campaigns
    Pekoms vs. Bellemere - I like the development of Pekoms. .. and he's a cat.
    Nekomamushi vs. Tom ... Cats rule ...literally
    Rosinante vs. Jinbe
    Franky vs. Koala - leaning towards Koala but could be swayed
    Brook vs. Nami
