This article will cover r/anime's seasonal contests for the year 2021.

It's the same tournament format as before: 2 days of nominations, 2 days of qualifying/seeding rounds, and 64-player single-elimination bracket. The winner of the final match gets the "Best Girl of [season]" title. In addition, all girls who reach the quarter-finals of each seasonal will qualify for the "Best Girl of 2021" contest.
