Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 2 – C3/D1

Another group of group C and D matches have ended and Maria and Yamamoto-sensei have won. here is a summary of those matches:

Match C2:

1. Maria (Hayate): 769 votes

2. Takei Hisa (Saki): 746 votes

3. Konori Mii (Railgun): 39 votes

Match D3:

1. Yamamoto Nanako (Hanamaru Kindergarten): 530 votes

2. Hiro (Hidamari Sketch): 448 votes

3. Aruru (Utawarerumono): 323 votes

So, let me talk about the D match first. That was close match between Yamamoto-sensei and Hiro. But, Hiro could not manage to pass Yamamoto-sensei, giving her the win. Looks like Hidamari Sketch is not as strong as once thought. Now to the other, more interesting match. So, this match turned out to be very close match. It didn’t look that way during the match since Maria had a decent lead. At the end, Buchou managed to get very close to her, but couldn’t get past her. If she didn’t have to deal with Uiharu’s revenge, she could have won this match. The Saki faction was unable to make the all-Saki group final a reality. This also gives Maria a big advantage in the next round because she will not need to deal with split voting. That brings my predictions to 61-21 (8-2) and my picks to 42-40 (4-6).

Here is a look into the last two matches this week in groups C and D:

Match C3:

Fukuji Mihoko (Saki): 1st (F14), 45.4% (C7-1)

Kunihiro Hajime (Saki): 3rd (F7), 39.7% (C8-1)

Haramura Nodoka (Saki): 3rd (F6), 48.7% (C9-1)

Match D1:

Sakurano Kurimu (Seitokai no Ichizon): 1st (F4), 40.3% (D1-1)

Amano Saki (Kanamemo): 9th (F11), 35.9% (D2-1)

Wilhelmina Carmel (Shana): 12th (F12), 34.2% (D3-1)

Predictions:

The final group C match in this round is going to be very interesting. This is going to be the first and probably only all-Saki match in this tournament. If we were just looking at this match and not any future matches, I would say that this match would be between Captain and Nodoka. I think that Hajime is just a little bit weaker than Captain and Nodoka to advance. And I think that Captain is probably the strongest between the two, so I think that Captain will win this. However, the final group round already has Tacos. To have a Saki girl to beat Maria, you’d probably want to have the weakest girl in there so split votes don’t turn out to be a problem here. So, there is a chance that Hajime can win this, but for now, I’m keeping my bet on (and also voting for) Captain.

The final group D match in this round is not going to be as exciting. Kurimu-chan did okay in her first main match, but I think this time, she win this match pretty easily. I don’t see much competition from Saki or Wilhelmina today. I’m also going to vote for that cute Kurimu-chan.
