32 Hermoine Granger (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) vs 33 Kagome Higurahi (Inuyasha)




So that's a lot to unpack. Let's look at some of the big upsets. Max Caulfield came out of nowhere to defeat the number one seed, Barry Allen. While the seeding was relatively arbitrary, Barry Allen may objectively be one of the worst time travelers on the list as demonstrated by the events of FlashPoint, so the elimination made a lot of sense. The other upset came from Okabe Rintaro from Setins;Gate defeating 90's dudes Bill and Ted. The classic time travel friends were considered to be strong favorites but Okarin proved to be too excellent even for them. Also both Hugh Jackman characters, Wolverine and Leopold, were eliminated which is mildly interesting. Ash from Army of Darkness also defeated Kiva from Megas XLR. Ash was famously played by Bruce Campbell who apparently also played a character on Megas who I am just learning is a MODOK parody named Magnanimous. We have to find a way to sneak him into a bracket. That's amazing.

Here are the match ups for the Round of Thirty Two.
