Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 – First Prelims 11 of 16

Match 10 in the first preliminary has just ended and Sayaka-chan manages to win against Victorique. Here are the top 12 advancing:

1. Miki Sayaka (Madoka) – 392 votes

2. Victorique de Blois (GOSICK) – 391 votes

3. Touwa Meme (Denpa Onna) – 268 votes

4. Yuno (Hidamari Sketch) – 238 votes

5. Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen (Strike Witches) – 221 votes

6. Sakura Akari (Jewelpet Tinkle) – 209 votes

6. Nohotoke Honne/Nohohon-san (Infinite Stratos) – 209 votes

8. Nagi (A-Channel) – 195 votes

9. Kamizaki Risa (Amagami SS) – 186 votes

10. Mitsuki Sohara (Sora no Otoshimono) – 179 votes

11. Himegami Aisa (To Aru Majutsu no Index) – 167 votes

12. Tsuchiura Iroha (Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain dakara ne!!) – 164 votes

Here we go again. A Madoka girl faces a very strong opponent and wins. This was a match between one of the weakest Madoka girls and one of the favorites in this tournament. At the end, the tragic Sayaka-chan edges out with a win…by one vote. Of the four main Madoka girls that had matches, all four of them have now claimed the top spot. That leaves one more: Madoka-chan. We’ll have to wait until the last first preliminary for that match, but for now, they are doing extremely well, though that could prove to be a problem when the main tournament starts. Meme manages third, though way behind Sayaka-chan and Victorique, and Nohohon-chan, aka minor character God, gets sixth. Evangeline will need to wait until the next preliminary (like all other Negima characters that survived) since she tied for 14th (with Madoka’s mom).

Compared to yesterday’s match, today’s match should be pretty quiet. Ruri-chan, aka Kuroneko, is up today and I believe that she has the best chance of winning. 2009 winner Taiga-chan is also up today, but in very minor fashion as Ookami-san’s “The student called Aisaka-san”, but she has no chance of advancing to even the second preliminary. Other possible advancers are veteran Haibara Ai, Miyako, Milky Holmes’s Hasegawa Hirano, KoreZon’s Dai-sensei/Ariel, Moshidora’s Minami-chan, Sora no Oto’s Kureha, and Strike Witches’s Yoshika and Mio. I’ll be voting for Angel Beats!’s Yusa, Da Capo II’s Asakura Otome, Haibara Ai, Minami-chan, Ruri-chan, Meruru, Yoshika, and To Heart 2’s Sango.
