Anime Saimoe Tournament – Round 2 – E3/F1

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

Match E3:

1. Yamada Aoi (WORKING!!): 458 votes

2. Kurumi Erika/Cure Marine (Pretty Cure!): 197 votes

3. Iwasawa (Angel Beats!): 161 votes

Match F1:

1. Senjougahara Hitagi (Bakemonogatari): 487 votes

2. Tainaka Ritsu (K-On!!): 393 votes

3. Akeno Mihoshi (Sora no Manimani): 86 votes

As expected, Aoi had an easy time in her match. Iwasawa had absolutely no power compared to Kanade-chan the day before and Cure Marine didn’t have much of a chance either. The group F match was a bit closer, but just like Yui against Nadeko several matches ago, Ricchan just could not get close enough to Hitagi. Bakemonogatari wins again against K-On!!. That brings my predictions up to 66-22 (13-3) and my picks down to 44-44 (6-10).

Here is a look into the last two second round matches in these two groups:

Match E3:

Cecily Campbell (The Sacred Blacksmith): 8th (F15), 38.8% (E7-1)

Nakamachi Kana (Kanamemo): 6th (F3), 43.2% (E8-1)

Tsukuyomi Komoe (Railgun): 7th (F12), 42.9% (E9-1)

Match F1:

Shimada Hazuki (BakaTest): 17th (F8), 5th (S2), 37.4% (F1-1)

Yui-nyan (Angel Beats!): 1st (F7), 48.1% (F2-1)

Evangeline A. K. McDowell (Negima): 11th (F7), 43.2% (F3-1)


The group E match today is pretty much even. Pretty much everyone did well in their preliminary matches and everyone did okay in their first round matches. I think the biggest factor today is going to be the popularity of Index/Railgun. I think that smoking/drinking loli sensei has the slight advantage here, even though Kana did a little bit better last round. I will be voting for Cecily.

This third group C match is the third straight match with an Angel Beats! girl. Today, Yui-nyan is up!!! She will be up against BakaTest’s imouto and Negima’s loli vampire (and lone survivor). Hazuki-chan and Eva are just way too weak when compared to Yui-nyan, so I don’t see how Yui-nyan will lose this one. Of course, I’ll be voting for Yui-nyan! ユイにゃん♥!!!
