The winner of Scrum Debate #8 is...
By - IonKnight
Coming out slightly on top this week is Mikan, >!managing to defeat her bully for the second time, the first of course being in 2-3.!<
Many early comments predicted Mikan to landslide win, but this debate turned out to be remarkably close, as evidenced by our first ever tie over a point, in the writeup count- speaking of which, the activity on this thread was enormous. Both sides fought valiantly, and that's what truly matters- so even if not in name, Hiyoko enjoyers also won something this debate.
This week's top analysis was submitted by u/TheGreenRigidArrow, earning a remarkable 15 awards over 2 comments, and you can see how they won such prestige [here.](https://www.reddit.com/r/danganronpa/comments/pko65u/scrum_debate_8_hiyoko_vs_mikan/hc50vfs/) You can see the rest of the writeups on the [thread](https://www.reddit.com/r/danganronpa/comments/pko65u/scrum_debate_8_hiyoko_vs_mikan/) now that it's out of contest mode.
Tomorrow, we'll be heading up a game and moving from rivals to partners, in a debate between **Kaito** and **Maki**.

As usual, any feedback or ideas for future matchups in this series are much appreciated.
Mikan voters came back from behind. This was really close.
I’m honestly not surprised here. Good game everyone!
Us Saionji fans didn't do bad! Of course I expected Mikan to win, but damn, we did a number on them! Good job everyone
This is irrelevant, don’t worry
sobbing but yeah, congrats everyone!
Damn, pretty expected that Mikan would win but wow us Hiyoko fans actually did bits!
Considering that Mikan is the character with the biggest army of simps in the entire franchise, this is actually a great result for Hiyoko.
Id say thats probably celeste, kirigiri, chiaki, kaede, komaeda or kokichi tbh
But yeah, im surprised it was this close, its good to see that hiyoko is a lot more popular than she seems
Yay, my friend green got highest writeup
Yes!! Woohoo!! Team Mikan for the win! Well, this whole thing was fun, and I’m really glad you guys like my write up! But I will also give props to the Hiyoko fans. They fought hard for her and that something I can really respect! Anyway, thank you, everyone! <3
Well boys, we did it. Hiyoko Saionji is no more 😎.
Ayyyy green did a funny!
YEEEEEES WE DID IT BEST GIRL WON
btw it was fun to read all the write ups of the people in both sides, everyone in team hiyoko did a great job :D
I for sure thought Hiyoko was gonna win. But I’m so glad Mikan won!
YES! Hoooly shit, so worth refreshing the New all day long
I gotta give it to Hiyoko fans: y'all mfs were a tough nut to crack
Congratulations u/TheGreenRigidArrow >!(sorry about the ping btw)!<
Predictable but narrow, as someone who loves both, that's fine
Don't like the results but at least it wasn't a complete landslide.
I really thought Hiyoko would win this. I was seeing alot of votes for her.
Honestly, I knew Mikan would win. She's easily one of the most simped on characters in the franchise anyways, and everyone seems to like her for some reason. Oh well. We put up a fight, Banana gang!
Mikan and her army of simps won. How shocking.
the only shocking think is how close it was .
Now I wait for the filthy frank meme
Ladies and gentleman...
Wow, the first 24 hours was leaning soooo heavily Hiyoko, but I'm glad with the results.
Jeez, Mikan is so unpopular she only barely won against Hiyoko? Poor Mikan.
suck it banana b-hole!
Can we get a sad ooga booga in the reply’s for Hiyoko
Congratulations to Mikan Tsumiki, even though she's neutral in my book.
As a Mikan kin and Hiyoko fan, I must agree this was SUPER close. Both have flaws and qualities. Both have sad backstories. I must admit I chose Hiyoko because she was more developed, in my opinion. :3
As much as I expected my kin to win in the first place, I was actually shocked to see Hiyoko taking the lead for the first bit of time, so I thought she'd win, instead, at that time.
this debate is so close it isn't as close as kaede vs shuichi but it is the second one and the third being nagito vs kokichi .
