Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 – First Prelims 14 of 16

Match 13 has just ended and the Flame Haze, Shana-chan, has taken the win. Here are the 12 advancing into the main tournament:

1. Shana (Shana) – 326 votes

2. Cecilia Alcott (Infinite Stratos) – 293 votes

3. Nymph (Sora no Otoshimono) – 291 vote

4. Huang Lingyin (Infinite Stratos) – 280 votes

5. Morishima L. Haruka (Amagami SS) – 267 votes

6. Hagimura Suzu (Seitokai Yakuindomo) – 225 votes

7. Yuzurizaki Nero (Milky Holmes) – 203 votes

8. Eclair Martinozzi (DOG DAYS) – 172 votes

9. Sanada Yukimura (Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls) – 168 votes

10. Nakatsugawa Ui (Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi) – 162 votes

11. Amatsume Akira (Yosuga no Sora) – 158 votes

12. Kinoshita Yuuko (BakaTest) – 150 votes

This is the first time in this preliminary that a veteran has taken the top spot, but the second time that a Kugyuu tsundere has taken the top spot. The veterans have been having problems with the newcomers, coming close in multiple occasions, but never getting first until this match. I was wrong when I said that Lingyin was more popular than Cecilia since Cecilia had 13 more votes than her. While Nymph, Suzu, Nero, Eclair, and Yuuko advance, Kotomi, Momo, Natsume, and Eiko will have to wait until the next preliminary to advance.

Compared to yesterday’s match, this is a relatively light match. The two biggest names in this match is Elsie and Maekawa-san and I think that Elsie will easily win this match. Other possible advancers are BakaTest’s Akira, DOG DAYS’s Ricotta, Hanasaku Iroha’s Tomoe, Seitokai Ichizon’s Kaede, Ika Musume’s Chizuru, and maybe KoreZon’s Chris, though she’ll have better chances next year since she barely showed up in season one. I’ll be voting for Zettai Karen Children’s Mio-chan, Maekawa-san, DOG DAYS’s Becky, Ricotta, and Nanami, Chizuru, Ryoufu, and Elsie.
