Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 2 – C2/D3

Yesterday’s two matches just ended and Tacos and Koromo have won. Here is a summary of those two matches:

Match C1:

1. Kataoka Yuuki (Saki): 492 votes

2. Himeji Mizuki (BakaTest): 235 votes

3. Manabe Nodoka (K-On!!): 199 votes

Match D2:

1. Amae Koromo (Saki): 501 votes

2. Shirai Kuroko (Railgun): 344 votes

3. Fujibayashi Kyou (Clannad): 147 votes

Saki power was just too much for the non-Saki girls in these two matches. Both Tacos and Koromo easily won their matches. Kuroko couldn’t garner enough votes to even get close to Koromo and try to get some revenge for Uiharu’s loss. That brings my predictions to 60-20 (7-1) and my picks to 41-39 (3-5).

Here is a look into the next two matches in groups C and D:

Match C2:

Maria (Hayate): 3rd (F8), 44.3% (C4-1)

Takei Hisa (Saki): 2nd (F10), 41.4% (C5-1)

Konori Mii (Railgun): 11th (F15), 37.7% (C6-1)

Match D3:

Hiro (Hidamari Sketch): 3rd (F2), 41.7% (D7-1)

Aruru (Utawarerumono): 6th (F5), 37.2% (D8-1)

Yamamoto Nanako (Hanamaru Kindergarten): 2nd (F5), 38.9% (D9-1)

Predictions:

Today is the day that Uiharu fans have been waiting for. Today is the day they can finally get their revenge. I see no reason why Maria wouldn’t win this match, especially since Buchou is going to have to deal with those revenge votes. Nevertheless, that match should be interesting because of the implications associated with this match for group C. I will be voting for Maria, not because of Uiharu. The other interesting match is between Hiro and Yamamoto-sensei. This is going to be a really close match which will come down to which series is stronger. This is a really hard match to call, but I think that Hiro has that slight edge over Yamamoto-sensei. I will be voting for Aruru.
