Anime Saimoe Tournament – First Prelims 4 of 16

Day 3 is over and Izumi shows that she is a force to be reckon with, winning group 3 by a comfortable 48 vote lead. Here is the rest of the top 12:

1. Segawa Izumi (Hayate) – 347 votes

2. Ryuumonbuchi Touka (Saki) – 299 votes

3. Araragi Tsukihi (Bakemonogatari) – 230 votes

4. Araragi Karen (Bakemonogatari) – 226 votes

5. Kijima Saki (Hayate) – 222 votes

6. Nakamachi Kana (Kanamemo) – 220 votes

7. Mitsuki Sohara (Sora no Otoshimono) – 209 votes

8. Natsume (Hidamari Sketch) – 193 votes

9. Hanabishi Miki (Hayate) – 183 votes

10. Otonashi Hatsune (Angel Beats!) – 163 votes

11. Suminoe Riko (kiss×sis) – 160 votes

11. Oomachi Miyabi/Kyouju (GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class) – 160 votes

It was not surprising that Izumi won this group. It was also not surprising that the other Hayate girls easily made it to the next round. And as expected, Saki’s Touka, Sohara, Riko, and the Bakemonogatari girls (Tsukihi and Karen) made it to the next round. One thing that was nice to see was to see Hatsune-chan move into the next round. She was only in one episode, but she managed to get tenth place. It would have been nice to also see Yuri’s two sisters move on to the next round also, but they get a second chance, as does Sekine.

What do we have in group four? We have Ricchan and of course, though she is not as popular as other K-On! girls, she will easily make it. Sawa-chan-sensei might also make it in. Some of the Hayate girls and Hidamari Sketch girls will of course manage to easily make it to the main rounds. Kyon’s sister will make it to the second round, though how she’ll get there I really can’t tell right now. Oh yea, WORKING!!’s Kazue and Seitokai’s Shiina sisters will also somehow make it to the next round. Negima has four girls in this round, but Negima is pretty weak right now. Of those four girls, Nodoka-chan has the highest chance of advancing.

I will be voting for all four of the Negima girls (as much as I don’t like Ayaka, I need to support Negima). Of course, I will also be voting for Ricchan because I like Ricchan. The other five girls are Kyon’s sister, the Shiina sisters, To Heart’s Himeyuri Ruri, and Hayate’s Chiharu.
