Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 2 – A2/B3

The first two matches of the second round have finished and Yuno and Nanoha have won. Here is a summary of those two matches:

Match A1:

1. Yuno (Hidamari Sketch): 444 votes

2. Noda Miki (GA ~Geijutsuka Art Design Class~): 317 votes

3. Todoroki Yachiyo (WORKING!!): 208 votes

Match B2:

1. Takamachi Nanoha (Nanoha): 536 votes

2. Ikeda Kana (Saki): 481 votes

3. Hachikuji Mayoi (Bakemonogatari): 225 votes

Yuno and Miki were head-to-head in the beginning and for a little bit, Miki had a slight lead. But, she could not keep the lead and Yuno ran away from Miki after the first few hours. Nanoha had the lead in her match the whole time, but Kana-chan made things interesting and kept it close. Mayoi did not have enough power to compete with either Nanoha and Kana-chan. This brings my predictions to 55-19 (2-0) and my picks to 38-36 (0-2).

Here is a look into the next two matches:

Match A2:

Nymph (Sora no Otoshimono): 6th (F15), 40.3% (A4-1)

Sengoku Nadeko (Bakemonogatari): 3rd (F1), 52.9% (A5-1)

Hirasawa Yui (K-On!!): 2nd (F15), 52.9% (A6-1)

Match B3:

Saginomiya Isumi (Hayate): 2nd (F9), 42.5% (B7-1)

Oshino Shinobu (Bakemonogatari): 5th (F14), 36.5% (B8-1)

Himari (Omamori Himari): 5th (F13), 35.2% (B9-1)

Predictions:

These two matches are going to be very interesting. What makes them so interesting? Both matches have popular girls that have done well in the past. Both matches also have Bakemonogatari girls. But how much will block voting help here today? In the first round, there were some matches where it helped both girls. There were a lot of matches where it helped one of the two girls. And then, there was one match where it had no effect (Hayate’s Izumi-chan and Saki in matches C5 and D5).

The group A match is going to be between Nadeko and Yui. K-On!! has been doing well in this tournament, while Bakemonogatari hasn’t been so hot. The thing is though, Nadeko is one of the more popular of the girls in her anime; however, Yui is too.  This is a tough decision, but I think that Yui will find a way to advance. Should also be mentioning now that the final episode of K-On!! is coming up in a couple of hours. I will also be voting for her.

The group B match is going to be between Isumi and Shinobu. Hayate hasn’t been doing to well. However, I think that Isumi will win Shinobu by a little bit. I will be voting for Himari in this match.
