Seashore war washed over Secret under the sea with a 3-1 win.
Bubble man couldn't handle DAT SAX from Dolphin shoals. with a 3-1.
Aquatic Base level 1 overtook Zora's domain with a (again)3-1 win.
Sailing the sea won over Launch octopus with a (yet again)3-1 win.

Huh, maybe depending on the vote numbers I could end the sections quicker. we'll see what happens.

Oh and Genojcha any chance you can update the Water bracket? http://challonge.com/bestwatertheme

AND WITH THAT THE FIRST ROUND IS OVER!

1) Kirby Return to Dreamland - Happy Mambo — I've never felt like Sonic water themes were ever all that good. I love the instrumentation, but I feel like it's horribly misused, here.Sonic is kinda known for not changing up the musical formula too much, and it definitely hurts, here.

2) Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze - Lockjaw's Saga (Tension) — Not only did I introduce this one, myself, but this is a really great mix of a few themes that drive the underwater feel to a climax that seems typically very hard to get for most sound designers.

3) Castlevania: Symphony of the Night - Crystal Teardrop — The simplicity of "Blub Blub Ocean" works well to Kirby's advantage, but "Crystal Teardrop" has a much deeper feel to it that I prefer, not to mention an instrumentation that brings back memories of the Tales games. I love the Tales games, and their music. =D

4) DKCTF - Funky Waters — I'm not gonna explain this one. I'm tired, right now. Maybe I can to a retro analysis next round. Probably not.

Donkey kong's funky water cuts it pretty close.
This tournament is getting tough already.

Now if only there were more voters.

What's sad is that this is probably the most agreeable we will be on any bracket. I swear, it almost always seems like I'm counter-voting you.

4) TO BE CONTINUED

Maybe we should just abstain from now on to save the counters some trouble, lol.

But no, in seriousness, it just happens that way for some reason.

The song "Funky Waters" plays in the stage "Amiss Abyss." As I recall, CapnPancakes up there titled the track "Amiss Abyss" but it's actually called "Funky Waters."

1) Super Mario 64 - Dire Dire Docks
2) Donkey Kong Country - Aquatic Ambience
3) Mario Kart 8 - Dolphin Shoals
4) Bravely Default: Flying Fairy - Sailing the Sea

Most of these have iconic status. The only one I put any real thought into was the 4th bracket, in which I prefer that "wonderous world" feel to it and have never really like Sonic water themes.
