Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 1 – 3

The second day of matches are over and Ryou easily wins and Yachiyo somehow manages to win.

Match A2:

Todoroki Yachiyo (WORKING!!): 276 votes

Hiiragi (Hanamaru Kindergarten): 254 votes

Ushiromiya Maria (Umineko no Naku Koro ni): 129 votes

Shirafuji Kyouko (WORKING!!): 36 votes

Match B2:

Fujibayashi Ryou (Clannad): 220 votes

Nogizaka Mika (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu): 162 votes

Hatori Kanon (Anyamal Tantei Kiruminzoo): 155 votes

Chikumaen Kaho (Mayoi Neko Overrun!): 144 votes

So for A2, it looks like split voting didn’t factor in that much. It did make the match close, but it is obvious that people like Yachiyo much more than Kyouko. I thought that would be the case, but I also thought that Hiiragi still had the slight advantage. It got close near the end, but Yachiyo ran away with it at the end. Ryou didn’t have much trouble in match B2.

Here are today’s upcoming matches:

Match A3:

Yoshida Kazumi (Shana): 6th (Group F2)

Irie (Angel Beats!): 17th (Group F1), 12th (Group S2)

Yuno (Hidamari Sketch): 2nd (Group F4)

Mikogami Rimu (Anyamal Tantei Kiruminzoo): 18th (Group F12), 13th (Group S1)

Match B3:

Selnia Iori Flameheart (Ladies vs. Butlers!): 12th (Group F9)

Yurippe (Angel Beats!): 4th (Group F15)

Shana (Shana): 1st (Group F15)

Kuzaki Rinko (Omamori Himari): 12th (Group F16)

Predictions:

Match A3 is not going to be as interesting as the other match going on today. Yuno is in this match today and she should not have any problem winning. If you are an Angel Beats! fan like I am, you would hope that the fact that Yurippe is also fighting on the same day would help Irie, but Yuno is just too strong for Irie. Match B3 is an interesting match. Rinko-chan and Selnia were basically screwed when they were placed in this match. This match is going to be the second match between Shana and Yurippe. Last time, Shana had no problem with Yuri. But this could be different this time around. Why is that? Nanoha is also in her group. If both advance far enough, they will both meet in the group finals. Shana is strong and will give Nanoha a lot of trouble in the group finals. What does that mean? If you want Nanoha to win, you want her to fight the weaker girl, which means you would want to vote for Yuri instead of Shana. I’m going to say that Shana still wins this match, but if strategic voting becomes a factor here, then Yurippe will win.
