Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 – Round 1 – C1/C5/C9

The last three matches of Group B has just ended and Kanade-chan, Erica, and Yukko have won. Here are the results from those matches:

Match B4:

1. Tachibana Kanade (Angel Beats!): 527 votes

2. Kotobuki Tsumugi (K-On!!): 378 votes

3. Yukata (A Channel): 57 votes

Match B8:

1. Erica Hartmann (Strike Witches): 383 votes

2. Mine Riko (Hidan no Aria): 322 votes

3. Yoshida Yuki/Mael Strom/Tomonori (KoreZon): 172 votes

Match B12:

1. Aioi Yuuko (Nichijou): 362 votes

2. Sakamoto Mio (Strike Witches): 354 votes

3. Togame (Katanagatari): 134 votes

It certainly looked like a very close match between Kanade-chan and Mugi, but a lot of it was fake votes…leaning towards Mugi. So in reality, Kanade-chan had an easy time winning against Mugi. Kanade-chan still proves to be very strong, even if Angel Beats! is fading. And as for the HTT girls, well, they’re in trouble. At least they have next year, right? Erica also had an easy time winning against Rikorin and Yuki-chan. The other match of the day was very close. Mio had a small lead for almost all of the match. And then, Yukko sneaked past her at the very end, giving her the victory. She might be a failure in school, but today, she surely hasn’t failed. That brings my weirdly symmetric record to 16-8 (for predictions) and 8-16 (for picks).

Here are the first three Group C matches occurring tomorrow (break today):

Match C1:

Urushibara Ruka (STEINS;GATE): 17th (Group F5), 4th (Group S2)

Kagura (Gintama): 11th (Group F5)

Ingrid Sorveig Sorgrims/Ini (Lotte no Omocha!): 13th (Group F7), 6th (Group S4)

Match C5:

Eclair Martinozzi (DOG DAYS): 8th (Group F13)

Kamiki Izumo (Ao no Exorcist): 18th (Group F10), 15th (Group S6)

Kinoshita Yuuko (BakaTest): 12th (Group F13)

Match C9:

Elucia de Lute Irma/Elsea (KamiNomi): 1st (Group F14)

Agnes Boulange (Shukufuku no Campanella): 11th (Group F2)

Kumashiro Maya (Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin): 13th (Group F8), 9th (Group S6)

The girls in Match C1 are not particularly strong. Ruka has STEINS;GATE to help her; Ingrid has Lotte to help her; and Kagura did the best out of the three. I think that Kagura has the best chance out of the three to advance, but Ini or Ruka could certainly take the win also. Eclair should be able win her match, but she will have some trouble against Hideyoshi’s sister, Yuuko. And for the last match, unless the voters want to throw some surprises, I see Elsea winning easily. I’ll be voting for Ini, Eclair, and Elsea.
