And for those of you who though last years tournament was a real grudge match, well hang on to your seats because this year it is going to get ugly!!!!!
Now for those of you who who did not follow last years tournament, here’s how it all goes down. Twenty-two anime, manga and video game characters will go toe to toe to determine who is the best in the world of otaku culture. Over the next few weeks, we will be brining you live coverage of each matchup with all the highlights, press conferences, trash talking and much more. But in the end, only one character will be victorious and he or she will claim the title of Anime March Madness champion of 2011. So let’s not waste anymore time, let get right to the first matchup.

And for round one of the tournament, we have a re-match of sorts of last years tournament. Well actually, these two haven’t had a chance to compete last year due to the tournament being canceled. So let get ready for two best friends with different personalities to put their friendship aside and take their personalities to the battle field. It’s Yomi Mizuhara and Tomo Takino from Azumanga Daioh.
