Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 1 – G3/H3

Another day of G and H group matches are over and Shizuku and Fate-chan have won. Here is a summary of yesterday’s matches:

Match G2:

1. Shizuku (Omamori Himari): 236 votes

2. Chika (Hidamari Sketch): 210 votes

3. Kirishima Kotone (Nyan Koi!): 103 votes

4. Mishima Akane (Kampfer): 81 votes

Match H2:

1. Fate Testarossa (Nanoha): 428 votes

2. Saber (Fate/stay night): 125 votes

3. Kinoshita Hideyoshi Yuuko (BakaTest): 118 votes

4. Morishita Koyomi (Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou): 71 votes

The group G match yesterday turned out to be very interesting. Shizuku had a lead in the first hour, but after than, Chika took a huge lead, leading by 90 votes half way through the match, but for the rest of the match, Shizuku slowly caught up and gained a lot of votes at the end, giving her the win. This match shows exactly why you should never give up on a character even when she’s falls way behind in the match. That was a nice victory that Shizuku got there. On the other hand, Fate-chan had no problem at all winning her match. She took a large lead at the beginning and had no chance of being caught after that. She was powerful many years ago and she is still powerful today. Every other girl in group H is going to have a tough time trying to compete with Fate-chan. This brings my predictions record to 43-15 and my picks to 31-27.

Here is a look into the next two matches today:

Match G3:

Kanbaru Suruga (Bakemonogatari): 4th (Group F14)

Komaki Manaka (ToHeart2): 20th (Group F8), 20th (Group S4)

Miyako (Hidamari Sketch): 3rd (Group F4)

Lala Satalin Deviluke (To Love-Ru): 17th (Group F11), 16th (Group S5)

Match H3:

Isara Gunther (Valkyria Chronicles): 13th (Group F12), 8th (Group S4)

Sousou (Koihime Musou): 14th (Group F16), 7th (Group S2)

Otonashi Hatsune (Angel Beats!): 10th (Group F3)

Natsume (Hidamari Sketch): 8th (Group F3)

Predictions:

Today is Suruga’s day to battle. Bakemonogatari has been doing okay, but not that great. Now the question is, can Suruga compete with two Hidamari Sketch girls? Miyako did well in her preliminary, just falling behind Mafuyu-chan and her comrade, Yuno. I think that she will do well again, especially with the help of Natsume, and win this match. I will be voting for Manaka-chan in this match.

In this other match, we have Hatsune-chan. She only really appeared in one episode, but that was enough to get this frail sister of Otonashi to get past the first preliminary. Unfortunately for her, Natsume has to be in this match and she will be getting help from Miyako. I will be voting for Hatsune-chan, but I think that Natsume has the slight advantage over her. Hope that I’m wrong here though.
