The hype is just a form of popularity.
If the majority of people think a female character from a comic or cartoon should win the contest than that's who should win. Deciding that a character shouldn't be allowed just because they happened to be new and liked goes against the entire point of such a contest.
It doesn't help that it seems that many people pushing for this rule seem to only be doing so, because either a character they liked lost, or they dislike Spinel/SU in general. However, I admit that it may just be my own bias making me see it that way.>>110313893
You're not going to convince anyone by throwing around insults like an autistic child.
