Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 2 – A3/B1

The second day of the second rond has just ended and Nadeko and Isumi won. Here is a summary of A2 and B3:

Match A2:

1. Sengoku Nadeko (Bakemonogatari): 911 votes

2. Hirasawa Yui (K-On!!): 727 votes

3. Nymph (Sora no Otoshimono): 96 votes

Match B3:

1. Saginomiya Isumi (Hayate): 591 votes

2. Himari (Omamori Himari): 438 votes

3. Oshino Shinobu (Bakemonogatari): 376 votes

What a busy day it was! Looks like block voting has led to mixed results. Yui, who graduated yesterday, did not have enough power to deal with Nadeko and her Bakemonogatari force. That gives HTT their first defeat in this tournament. Nadeko also has the most votes received in this tournament now. On the other hand, block voting could not help Shinobu enough to get even second place. Isumi’s match with Himari was a close one in the beginning, but she managed to pull away at the end. This brings my predictions to 56-20 (3-1) and my picks back to 50% at 38-38 (0-4).

Here is a look into the last two second round matches in groups A and B:

Match A3:

Ikaros (Sora no Otoshimono): 7th (F1), 40.8% (A7-1)

Shimada Minami (BakaTest): 8th (F8), 33.9% (A8-1)

Sanzen’in Nagi (Hayate): 1st (F8), 50.5% (A9-1)

Match B1:

Nazuna (Hidamari Sketch): 7th (F4), 39.7% (B1-1)

Fujibayashi Ryou (Clannad): 6th (F14), 32.3% (B2-1)

Shana (Shana): 1st (F15), 45.6% (B3-1)

Predictions:

In the first match, we have Nagi, Minami-chan, and Ikaros. In the other match, we have Shana-chan, Ryou, and Nazuna. Both Nagi and Shana-chan are probably the most powerful girls in their matches, but their power has been fading a bit. However, what is really going to help them to day is that both tsundere are voiced by the Queen of Tsundere. Just a couple of days ago, Alisa Bannings, one of her not-as-popular roles, managed to defeat Shiina. Nagi and Shana-chan may have some trouble, but both should be able to easily advance. I will be voting of Minami-chan and Shana-chan.
