UPDATE 3/24:the one poll that accidentally closed is now reopened.
Japan is slowly getting back to normal, but it’s still a long way before full recovery. Earthquakes are still happening at an alarming rate, and there’s a nagging voice in the back of my head that keeps wondering if these aftershocks will ultimately render Japan’s land unusable.
However, we can only worry about what’s going on right now, which is why from this week forward, every vote in our little Vocaloid tournament will go towards aiding Japan. For every 100 votes this week and next, $1 from my own pocket will be donated to the American Red Cross. The above picture will be regularly updated to show the progress made towards the $200 ceiling. Descent here to make a pledge to this cause as well. I will be donating $25 Dollar plus an additional $1 for every 50 votes for my favorite Vocaloid (its um totally a secret or something). Please vote and tell you friends to help contribute to a great cause.
In order to know who you’ll be voting for, though, we need to know the results from last week’s matches. Those are below.
We started with 24 Vocaloids. Last week, the remaining 16 pared themselves down to 8, and here are the results.
In a word, chalk. A vast majority of the 1600+ votes this week went for the higher seeds, leaving us with four 1 vs 2 matchups for our regional finals. Remember, each regional champion will compete against each other next week in a 4-way final to determine the tournament’s inaugural champion. Polls close next Tuesday at 4PM EDT, and don’t hesitate to tell others about this. Even if they aren’t necessarily Vocaloid fans, their vote means more money for a great cause.
