Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 1 – E6/F6

Unfortunately, I’m not here right now to summarize matches E5/F5, since I won’t be here by the time those two matches end (I’ll be in hot New York observing the first day of the US Open and cheering for the Japanese tennis players). As of 4PM (Japan time), Aoi is having no problem right now, while Hina-chan has the slight lead after having a lot of trouble with Mafuyu-chan and her fake voting earlier on. I’ll go through the winners of both the fifth and sixth set of matches when the sixth set of matches end, so for now, let’s look at the matches that are coming up soon:

Match E6:

Houjouin Seika (Princess Lover!): 12th (Group F2)

Ranka Lee (Macross Frontier): 12th (Group F6)

Kurumi Erika/Cure Marine (Pretty Cure!): 13th (Group F6), 2nd (Group S3)

Matou Sakura (Fate/stay night): 14th (Group F12), 17th (Group S1)

Match F6:

Sorami Kanata (Sora no Woto): 7th (Group F14)

Miyanaga Saki (Saki): 2nd (Group F11)

Kuronuma Sawako (Kimi ni Todoke): 12th (Group F8)

Toudou Elis (Seitokai no Ichizon): 3rd (Group F9)


Match E6 is pretty tough to predict, especially since everyone did about the same ranking-wise in the first preliminary. Though Seika had Misaka-chan in her preliminary group and Ranka had Nanoha in her group, Sakura had to be placed in the epic group with Hina-chan, Kanade-chan, etc. Looking at that alone would lead me to think that Sakura would win, but she had a lot of trouble advancing from the second preliminary. However for now, I’m going to ignore her not-so-great second preliminary and predict that she will win. I’m also going to vote for her.

Match F6 is a little bit easier to predict. Saki tied for second with Uiharu, losing to Yuki-chan by a measly 33 votes. Elis got third in her group, losing to Koromo by more than 200 votes and to Isumi by over 100 votes. We have a title character going up against a not-so-major character, so I will be predicting that Saki will win this. I’ll also be voting for her.
