Anime Saimoe Tournament – First Prelims 2 of 16

Well, the results of the first preliminary #1 is in and the results are not that surprising (my votes are in bold and italics). The top 12 anime girls automatically move on to the first round and those who don’t advance and are above 40th place go to the second prelims for a second shot:

1. Azu-nyan (K-On!!) – 362 votes

2. Taneshima Poplar (WORKING!!) – 355 votes

3. Sengoku Nadeko (Bakemonogatari) – 336 votes

4. Sakurano Kurimu (Seitokai no Ichizon) – 294 votes

5. Holo (Spice & Wolf II) – 227 votes

6. Hanekawa Tsubasa (Bakemonogatari) – 194 votes

7. Ikaros (Sora no Otoshimono) – 177 votes

8. Iwasawa (Angel Beats!) – 168 votes

9. Asakura Ryouko (Haruhi) – 153 votes

10. Ryuubi (Shin Koihime Musou) – 144 votes

11. Nogizaka Haruka (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu) – 137 votes

12. Sonozaki Mion (Higurashi) – 128 votes

12. Houjou Satoko (Higurashi) – 128 votes

It was not surprising that Azu-nyan took the top spot, though it was a closer than I thought it would be. I’m a bit surprised about Poplar-chan’s ranking, but not really. It does make sense that she would make 2nd, but I didn’t think it was that close. Whatever, I did want her in. Kurimu-chan, Holo, the Bakemonogatari girls (Tsubasa, Nedeko), Ikaros, Iwasawa, Ryouko, and the Higurashi girls (Mion, Satoko) also advanced which is also no surprise. I did wish that at least one of the Negima girls (Anya, Madoka, Mana) would make it, but I did expect those results. It looks like only Anya made it to the second prelims, which makes it a bit sad. Irie from Angel Beats also makes it to the second prelims. So with the first of the prelims done, we go to the second of the first preliminaries.

Well, this is basically Mikoto-chan’s chance to show her immense popularity because this is her group. I really don’t see anyone else that big in this list (correct me if I’m wrong). If Negima wanted to get some girls in, this is probably its best shot. Yue would probably be their best hope of advancing. Shin Koihime Musou can also get some more people in the first round.

As the second day just started, I voted for Mikoto-chan (of course), the Negima team (Yue, Fuuka, Chizuru), Maron-chan from Quiz Magic Academy, Hibino Fumi from Hayate, and Kaede from Nyan Koi.
