Punishment Game

As is tradition, you can show extra dedication to your waifu by taking part in the punishment game. Here's a reminder of how it works:

Nominate a girl to back, either through a PM or mention in this thread.
If your waifu doesn't win, you'll change your forum avatar to the overall winner at the end of the contest for a week
Signups for the punishment game are open until the winner is determined, yes even during the final voting round


Leyana - Kongou
HaganeNoKaze - Shouhou
/u/FireKore - Hibiki
/u/LunarNeedle - Musashi
/u/lilelf29 - Amatsukaze
/u/Hinanai_Tenshi - Akizuki

This is the year that... a foreign ship still doesn't win. The real question is if any new girl gets to quarters. I can see maybe tashkent or bay but outside that I doubt any will make it far.

KotoNano Bay has a good chance tbh.

Also due to issues with Anime Bracket, nominations are extended till Tues 10/07/18.

Hey Leyana, thank for the initiative !

As usual, take me for Punishment game with Shouhou !

AnimeBracket is still having some issues. But it looks like copying past entries works. Do you guys want to wait and see so we can use newly submitted art or copy everything so we can get started?

Eliminations have started!

Vote for your girls here: https://animebracket.com/vote/kancolle-waifu-war-v/

Remember that you can vote for more than one girl in this round. Despite how the voting is presented, you don't have to choose between one of two in a pair. Vote for both! Vote for neither! It's up to you.

Also still taking sign ups for the punishment game.

well...that has all my ducks in a row... (literally, I'm missing Hatsuzuki :( )

Going at expected so far. If there's going to be any real upsets the next two rounds are the time. If there isn't any upsets now there won't be enough seeding gap to really have an upset.

Ooops, I skipped the Group A semis. It's the Group B Semis now.

Duck V Duck for Group A now.

I kind of want both cranes to go through, just so we have the most awkward set of semi's ever of two groups of sisters murdering each other.
