Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 1 – G8/H8

The seventh day of group G and H matches are over and — have won. Here is a summary of these matches:

Match G7:

1. Akiyama Mio (K-On!!): 411 votes

2. Myoudouin Itsuki/Cure Sunshine (Pretty Cure!): 242 votes

3. Sekine (Angel Beats!): 36 votes

4. Aria (The Sacred Blacksmith): 34 votes

Match H7:

1. Hinamori Amu (Shugo Chara!): 297 votes

2. Kazumiya Rio (Sora no Woto): 135 votes

3. Hanabishi Miki (Hayate): 114 votes

4. Ushiromiya Jessica (Umineko no Naku Koro ni): 56 votes

Cure Sunshine made the group G match with Mio-chan interesting. The match was close at the beginning, but Mio-chan was just too powerful to get knocked out. Mio-chan’s win is going to make the group G matches in the next round very interesting, because there is a possibility that Azu-nyan and Mio-chan will be in the group finals, which is not good for either of them, especially with Mikoto-chan possibly being in that battle. What could that mean for the next round? Either Azu-nyan or Mio-chan might be casted out just to give the other a better chance of winning in that group final. On the other hand, Amu-chan had no resistance in her match. She took the lead early and the others could not come close to her, give Amu-chan another great win for her. My predictions are now 52-16 and my picks are 36-32.

We have two more days of first round matches to go, so here are the two matches going on today:

Match G8:

Makita Hime (Sora no Manimani): 16th (Group F11), 3rd (Group S3)

Hanato Kobato (Kobato): 4th (Group F10)

Illyasviel von Einzbern (Fate/stay night): 10th (Group F14)

Araragi Tsukihi (Bakemonogatari): 3rd (Group F3)

Match H8:

Serizawa Fumino (Mayoi Neko Overrun!): 2nd (Group F13)

Anzu (Hanamaru Kindergarten): 4th (Group F9)

Kagura (Gintama): 12th (Group F4)

Senou Natsuru (Kampfer): 14th (Group F11), 5th (Group F3)


Both Kobato and Tsukihi did well in their preliminaries, but both of their groups were not particularly strong. However, I think that Bakemonogatari has enough power today to beat Kobato, though this is going to be a close match. I will be voting for Ilya-chan today because of her cuteness.

The other match is basically going to be between Fumino-chan and Anzu. Anzu did well, but Koromo and Isumi were her only real opponents here. Fumino-chan wasn’t in a strong group either, but she got pretty close to Fate-chan. This could also be a close match, but I think that Mayoi Neko’s tsundere will win this match. And of course, I will be voting for this cute tsundere.
