Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 1 – 2

With the first two of many matches in this first round, GA and Hidamari get their first victories with Miki and Nazuna winning their respective matches. Here is a summary of the two matches (bolded/italicized = picks, underline = predictions):

Match A1:

1. Noda Miki (GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class) – 267 votes

2. Suminoya Kureha (Sora no Woto) – 173 votes

3. Jindai Komaki (Saki) – 99 votes

4. Kusakabe Misuzu (11eyes) – 91 votes

5. Miyano Mayu (B-Gata H-Kei) – 79 votes


1. Nazuna (Hidamari Sketch) – 288 votes

2. Mizuno Kaede (Nyan Koi!) – 256 votes

3. Kiyama Harumi (Railgun) – 124 votes

4. Akashi (Tatami Galaxy) – 57 votes

Match A1 was pretty predictable. Miki didn’t show any weakness against Kureha, the only girl that could have given her any danger. For match B1, my thoughts were that Kaede was popular enough to overcome the fact that Nazuna is from Hidamari Sketch. I guess I was wrong there. Kaede was ahead in the first hour of voting, but she easily lost that lead and could never catch up with her. I guess Hidamari Sketch is going to be a bit stronger than I thought.

Now here are the next two matches that are going to be going on today:

Match A2:

Shirafuji Kyouko (WORKING!!): 11th (Group F2)

Hiiragi (Hanamaru Kindergarten): 5th (Group F7)

Ushiromiya Maria (Umineko no Naku Koro ni): 12th (Group F7)

Todoroki Yachiyo (WORKING!!): 3rd (Group F16)

Match B2:

Hatori Kanon (Anyamal Tantei Kiruminzoo): 12th (Group F14)

Fujibayashi Ryou (Clannad): 6th (Group F14)

Chikumaen Kaho (Mayoi Neko Overrun!): 15th (Group F8), 4th (Group S2)

Nogizaka Mika (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu): 9th (Group F16)


Match A2 has Yachiyo and she would have done well, if Kyouko weren’t in the same group. Because of that and because Hiiragi is strong, Hiiragi should win this matchup. In Match B2, Ryou shouldn’t have much of a problem winning.
