S.C.A.M. Anime Character Tournament – Update #1
Here’s an update of Scenic City Anime & More’s Anime Character Tournament. Since the nominees were selected on January 4th, the characters have tried their hardest to make it to the Top 2 of their group, some rounds very close with the runner-up tied with the same number of votes for a possible tie-breaker. Of course, there’s the heartbreaking conflict of a favorite in the same match of another.
Out of 22 Characters, only one can be the best. With the tournament in the Quarterfinals, it’s coming down to the wire. Check out the standings below to see if your favorite character made it, including an announcement of another character tournament coming soon!
