Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 1 – E3/F3

The exciting match from yesterday has just ended and Yui-nyan and Kanade-chan have won! Here is a summary of yesterday’s matches:

Match E2:

1. Tachibana Kanade (Angel Beats!): 646 votes

2. Index (Railgun): 535 votes

3. Suou Pavlichenko (DARKER THAN BLACK): 67 votes

4. Hanasaki Tsubomi/Cure Blossom (Pretty Cure!): 47 votes

Match F2:

1. Yui-nyan (Angel Beats!): 602 votes

2. Inami Mahiru (Working!!): 562 votes

3. Kamyu (Utawarerumono): 52 votes

4. Lily Shiraishi (Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou): 35 votes

These two matches were very interesting to watch. Not only there are a lot of votes, there were a lot of fake votes, especially for Index and Mahiru. It looked like that those two were in the lead for most of the match, but in reality they were behind by many votes. The Yui-nyan/Mahiru match was a bit closer, but Yui-nyan managed to either keep the lead of remain close to Mahiru. Index has to wait another to advance. It’s great to see two of my favorite girls advancing, though it was a tough match to watch because of the fake votes. My predictions are now 30-10 and my picks are 22-18

Here is a look into today’s matches:

Match E3:

Lisa (The Sacred Blacksmith): 10th (Group F15)

Suzuki Jun (K-On!!): 13th (Group F7), 1st (Group S3)

Ayase Yue (Negima!): 10th (Group F2)

Takatsuki Kanade (Asura Cryin’): 11th (Group F5)

Match F3:

Evangeline A. K. McDowell (Negima): 11th (Group F7)

Ania Fortuna (Asura Cryin’): 18th (Group F2), 12th (Group S4)

Chouhi (Koihime Musou): 12th (Group F5)

Sakura Kaede (Kampfer): 22nd (Group F16), 23rd (Group S3)

Predictions:

It is a bit tough to tell who will win match E3. All of them have a chance. Other than Lisa, none of them were in particularly strong preliminary groups. Jun has some advantage because she’s from K-On!!, but then she’s not really up to par with the other K-On!! girls. I think the girl with the biggest chance of winning in Yue because she will be fighting with Eva in the other match. That other match is basically between Eva and Chouhi. And since Yue should be helping her, I think Eva has the slight advantage here. Negima hasn’t been doing well in this tournament, but these two matches are the best chances of Negima to have some girls advance. So, I will be voting for those two, because Negima is my favorite manga.

    I had a tough time choosing between Yue and Lisa. I’m only predicting Yue to win because Eva is in the other match. And, Yue has to be popular enough if she’s getting an OAV focused on her.
