    Anyone can do that? Or only those living in Japan?

    1. Kirsten Miller

      I don’t see anything in the article that says you can’t, so I don’t know. I’ll definitely give it a try, though.

    >Belsergar

    I’m almost positive it’s Berserker.

    1. Kirsten Miller

      I am too, but I’ve seen it debated, and since it uses something slightly different from what I’ve seen for ‘Berserker’ in the past, I’m choosing to keep to the kana instead of full out translating it.

    2. Yotaka

      It’s also pretty much the same spelling as the Berserga mecha line from VOTOMS ((one of which is the Berserga Testarossa which is the name of the other Blade Rifle of note) so it’s sort of a tossup as to which meaning is intended. Falcom does like their mecha references.

      Also, not surprised in the slightest that Silver Thorn is the top Art currently, or by the top scenes. I am surprised by the absence of a certain character from those rankings but not displeased. I’d probably vote the Death Sluggers as #1 but I can see why they didn’t get the top slot. Just don’t tell you know who.

  3. redsilversnake

    Can you vote on specific parts of the poll or do you have to vote on everything? ‘Cause if it’s the former, and foreigners are allowed to participate, I’ll try my hand at this.
