Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 2 – E1/F2

The final round two matches in groups C and D have just ended and Nodoka and Kurimu-chan have won. Here is a summary of those two matches:

Match C3:

1. Haramura Nodoka (Saki): 378 votes

2. Fukuji Mihoko (Saki): 279 votes

3. Kunihiro Hajime (Saki): 129 votes

Match D1:

1. Sakurano Kurimu (Seitokai no Ichizon): 356 votes

2. Amano Saki (Kanamemo): 286 votes

3. Wilhelmina Carmel (Shana): 124 votes

In the only all-Saki match of this tournament, Nodoka managed to pull a small lead over Captain in the beginning of the match. Captain managed to stay close to her until the end, but she could never catch up. Nodoka took the easy win here. The other match was a bit closer with Kurimu-chan and Saki pretty much even in the beginning. But, Saki lost steam and Kurimu-chan took the win. That brings my predictions to 62-22 (9-3) and my picks to 43-41 (5-7).

Today is a day off, but here is a look at tomorrow’s group E and F matches:

Match E1:

Nagato Yuki (Haruhi): 1st (F11), 45.3% (E1-1)

Tachibana Kanade (Angel Beats!): 2nd (F12), 49.8% (E2-1)

Lisa (The Sacred Blacksmith): 10th (F15), 36.53% (E3-1)

Match F2:

Mashiro Rima (Shugo Chara): 15th (F1), 4th (S1), 33.1% (F4-1)

Shiina Mafuyu (Seitokai no Ichizon): 1st (F4), 45.5% (F5-1)

Miyanaga Saki (Saki): 3rd (F11), 38.8% (F6-1)


Here, we have two very interesting matches. In the first group E match, we have Kanade-chan facing off against Yuki-chan. Yuki-chan is part of the old powers, while Kanade-chan is part of the new powers. This is a very hard match to call since both did well in their preliminaries and their first round matches, but I think that Kanade-chan has the slight advantage here because Haruhi hasn’t been that strong. It’s also hard for me to decide who to vote for because I like both Kanade-chan and Yuki-chan (alternate form), but I guess I’ll vote for Kanade-chan.

In the group F match, we have Saki going up against Mafuyu-chan. So again, we have two powerful characters. Mafuyu-chan even managed to beat Hina-chan, which was sad to see. In this match, I think that Mafuyu-chan has the advantage here. I was going to vote for her, but I just noticed something which is going to change my vote. Yui-nyan is going to have to face Mafuyu-chan if Mafuyu-chan wins, which is not good. I like Mafuyu-chan better than Saki, but for the sake of Yui-nyan, I will be voting for the lesser of two evils, Saki.
