A small, tiny, fifteen minute competition (note: not the duration of the competition) to win yourself a BYOND Membership.
In light of recent news about a potential Live Action Bleach Movie. I attempted to (very lazily) match people with characters.
I didn't get very far, as you can see. But this is where you can step up.
The rules are simple, one submission per person. If you submit more than one entry, the later entry will be the one judged. Your job is to go out and find images of the main cast of Bleach (Ichigo, Rukia, Orihime, "Chad" and Uryū) and then match the character with an actor.
I can't give bonus points for adding any extra Bleach characters, as that would be unfair to everyone. But you're welcome to do so anyway, if only for my amusement.
There are two ways to win: Play it real, with actors you genuinely want to see play those roles and think would fit it best, or, you can take the comedy rout and put actors you think would be the most hilarious fitting. If you take the comedy rout, remember, you're out to make me laugh.
The format is simple: Align the character image with the actor image. Also, try and use screenshots from the actual anime show itself, rather than using drawn fan-art from people. They're not hard to find. (Here's Ichigo)
Email (yes, the long lost art of electronic mail) all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to put "BYOND Anime Competition" in the title. Feel free to add the actors names in with your submission, make it easier for me to judge (based on previous films etc).
You're free to send people you'd like to donate your winning membership too (on the chance you win) along with your submission, if you have no interest in obtaining a membership.
And for the love of The Force, do not use .BMP formats! I don't have the time to download 10mb files! Please stick to PNG or JPG image formats!
Contest concludes Tuesday the 13th and winners announced Wednesday the 14th.
Sorry for not giving out an actual cash prize, but the effort involved in this particular competition isn't worthy of anything substantive from my wallet.
Well, off you go.
