If you look at the pixiv weekly and monthly tag rankings, one thing you’ll notice is that the Madoka series is perched on top. Of the Madoka characters, Mami is the top one. Next, that disturbing thing a lot of people like to refer to as QB. And then, Homu Homu. Well, since Erio-chan was in the match, Mami did not get as big of a victory, but yea, she did win. Two more things: STEINS;GATE continues to be powerful, though not in the level of Madoka. And K-On!! continues to struggle with their main girl getting fifth.
There is no match today, but I’ll talk about tomorrow. I want to say that this is HTT’s chance to get a top spot, but they’re not doing well. Mio-chan is up today, but she’ll have to face another Kugyuu tsundere, Lotte. The other Kugyuu tsundere managed to well even though she had to face Anko-chan. So, I’m going to say that Lotte is going to win this, just because HTT hasn’t been doing well. Other possible advancers are KoreZon’s Yoshida Yuki-chan/Mael Strom/Tomonori/Yukinori and Hiramatsu Taeko-chan, To Love-Ru’s Run, and maybe Ookami’s Alice and Otsuu. Madoka’s Charlotte is also up so maybe she’ll advance also (I could say a lot more about the Madoka series, but I don’t feel like spoiling Madoka for non-watchers). So who will I vote for? Well, I’ll vote for my #1, Chrome Dokuro-nyan, my #2, Yoshida Yuki-nyan, Lotte, Yumekui Merry’s Neko Nurse B, Durarara!!’s Erika, Mio-chan, Taeko-chan, Charlotte, Mitsudomoe’s Miya-something, and To Heart 2’s Manaka.
Now this is my time to ask for your help. So, Chrome doesn’t usually do well in these tournaments and this is her final tournament until another Reborn series starts up again. So please, if you can, please vote for her. Why wouldn’t you want to vote for this shy, cute, and kind girl? At least let her advance to the second preliminary.
