ISML 2022 will be the 15th edition of the International Saimoe League, and will mark the return of ISML 2013 Main Tournament champion Ruri Gokou and Male Exhibition winner Houtarou Oreki.



Nomination Round[]

The nomination round is where voters enter names that they want to participate in ISML. Each nomination counts as one vote. After nominations end, a certain number of characters with the highest votes will qualify to the preliminary rounds. Direct invites will skip this stage entirely.

Rules[]

How to Nominate[]

For those unfamiliar with isml's nomination system:

  • nominations will last for seven days
  • Each voter is given a ballot with a certain number of entries. To nominate a character, simply type its name AND its series. Name order / spelling / language / aliases don't matter as long as it's clear who you're referring to.
  • Each nomination counts as one vote. Duplicates are obviously not counted.
  • All characters must make their animated debut on or before a specified date.
  • Ballots must fulfill several important conditions in order for their nominations to be counted; failure to meet all of them will result in a voided ballot, i.e. Not counted.
    • Must represent a minimum number of anime series (spin-offs and crossovers do NOT count as separate series)
    • Must nominate at least a number of males and females each
    • A maximum limit of characters per series/franchise. Don't exceed this limit, otherwise the staff will discard them all because they can't choose.
    • Invalid entries are discarded independently and will NOT void your entire ballot unless it fails to meet the minimum requirements above.
  • ISML champions from 2014-2021 CANNOT be nominated because of the champions ban rule; they will be placed in a separate tournament of champions instead. They are as follows:


Direct invites[]

The following information is provisional --- meaning that it's not final and is subject to change.

The following characters will automatically skip the nomination stage:

  • 2021 Necklace and pendant winners (except the champions, if applicable)
  • 2021 playoff contestants
  • 2021 seasonal diadem winners (both male and female)
  • 2021 Divine circlet and Divine crown winners (if they did not win the seasonal)
