Anime Saimoe Tournament – First Prelims 12 of 16

Haruhi still proves to be a strong force in this tournament by getting Yuki to win group 11. Here is the top 12:

1. Nagato Yuki (Haruhi) – 488 votes

2. Uiharu Kazari (Railgun) – 455 votes

2. Miyanagi Saki (Saki) – 455 votes

4. Hachikuji Mayoi (Bakemonogatari) – 448 votes

5. Ryuuguu Rena (Higurashi) – 417 votes

6. Hinamori Amu (Shugo Chara!) – 332 votes

7. Koume (Hanamaru Kindergarten) – 302 votes

8. Yoshinoya-sensei (Hidamari Sketch) – 252 votes

9. Amano Saki (Kanamemo) – 233 votes

10. Shannon (Umineko no Naku Koro ni) – 223 votes

11. Ishigaki Tamaki (Taishou Yakyuu Musume.) – 216 votes

12. Tsuzuki Otome (Mayoi Neko Overrun!) – 206 votes

Saki was leading half of the match, then it looked like Uiharu would take the round when she passed Saki in votes. Then, Yuki ended up with a ton of votes in the last hour, giving her the win. Haruhi might not be that strong anymore, but it’s still strong enough force to win a round. Bakemonogatari continues its really strong run by sending Mayoi into the next round. They’ve had six girls in the first 11 preliminaries and all six of them has advanced. They have a good chance of sending their other two girls into the next round also. Rena and Amu managed to do really well also.

This is the preliminary that everyone has been waiting for. We have some huge names in this list. Rika-chan was the champion of 2008, Mio-chan is one of K-On!!’s favorites, Hina-chan is the favorite from Hayate, and Kanade-chan is the favorite from Angel Beats!. Other big names (not as big as those four) are Railgun’s Kuroko and Komoe-sensei, Shana’s Wilhelmina, and Saki’s Yuuki. Of the four biggest names, Rika-chan would probably be the weakest because she hasn’t had much air time this year. However, I have no idea at all who would win. All of those anime has had at least one winner in previous preliminaries this year (K-On!! has Azu-nyan and Ui, Hayate has Izumi-chan and Nagi, Angel Beats! has Yui-nyan). All of those anime has also had many girls already make it into the next round. All I can say is that they’ll be doing extremely well, as long as they’re not grouped with each other again or with other very strong girls. I want to say that Kanade-chan will win since Hina-chan hasn’t had that much TV time lately and Mio-chan…I can’t even think of an explanation for her not winning, but you know, this is a very hard match to guess the winner.

Kanade-chan gets my number one vote because I like her more but Hina-chan, Mio-chan, and Rika-chama also get my votes (so you know it won’t be me that decides this match). NEEDLESS’s Setsuna, ToHeart2’s Maaryan and Yuma-chan, Fate/stay night’s Rin-chan and Sakura-chan, and 11eyes Momono get my other votes.

GO KANADE-CHAN…and everyone else!!!
