This article covers an ongoing (currently-running) event. Information in this article is being constantly updated and changed. Check back every now and then for the latest information.

This article is about /r/anime's seasonal contests for 2022, the 6th year of the subreddit's Seasonal Salt series. It will be organized by changshiyixia (also known as uoiea1998 outside Reddit), who previously hosted the 2021 Fall and Yearly tournaments.

A shortened schedule of 8 days (1 elimination, 6 bracket rounds, 1 winner announcement) will be used for this year. Furthermore, the nomination rounds of some seasonals will start during the final rounds of the previous contest to save time, like it happened for Winter 2022 where its nominations started during the final round of Best Girl of 2021.


Rules[]

Nomination Rules (Copied from the website):

  • Only female characters that have appeared in [their respective seasonal] TV anime or that appeared for the first time in a multiple cour show during this period are allowed. They can be animals/creatures as long as they can talk with human characters, are main characters themselves or are part of an anime mostly consisting of non-human characters.
  • Movie characters are allowed as long as its first BD release with English subtitles occurred during the season at hand. Check the /r/anime discussion threads to make sure when they came out.
  • TV Sequels/multiple cour girls that aren't appearing for the first time are NOT allowed.
    • Exceptions: For multiple cour girls, If they failed to make it into the bracket for the previous season, they may be renominated again.
    • For sequels and remakes, if their last TV appearance was over 15 years ago they may be nominated.
  • Characters with Non-TV Animeography in the last 15 years can only have a max of three works since then.
  • Limit to 4 Characters per franchise, these will be determined in the elimination round. Absolutely no exceptions to this rule.
  • Check MAL's lists to see all 2022 TV anime from each season. (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall.)
  • Make sure the image links end in .png, .jpg or .jpeg, any other link may not work even if the site accepts it.
  • Please don't nominate characters who have almost zero screentime, if they make it into the bracket they won't be allowed if their show gets a sequel and they get screentime then.


Tournament Format

    • All nominees are split into 1 or more elimination groups (depending on host preference)
