Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 – Round 1 – C2/C6/C10 (UPDATE)

The first three matches of Group C have just ended and Ini, Eclair, and Elsea have won. Here are the results from those matches:

Match C1:

1. Ingrid Sorveig Sorgrims/Ini (Lotte no Omocha): 172 votes

2. Kagura (Gintama): 158 votes

3. Urushibara Ruka (STEINS;GATE): 127 votes

Match C5:

1. Eclair Martinozzi (DOG DAYS): 195 votes

2. Kinoshita Yuuko (BakaTest): 166 votes

3. Kamiki Izumo (Ao no Exorcist): 95 votes

Match C9:

1. Elucia de Lute Irma/Elsea (KamiNomi): 287 votes

2. Agnes Boulange (Shukufuku no Campanella): 110 votes

3. Kumashiro Maya (Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin): 67 votes

The problem that Kagura had to face is that Shounen anime girls rarely do well in this tournament. Even though she is a Kugyuu girl, she is unable to win against Ini-chan, though she does come close. Eclair-chan’s match against Yuuko was close in the beginning. However, Yuuko is not Hideyoshi. So, Eclair managed to get a decent lead after the first several hours, giving her the win. We all thought that Elsea would easily win her match and that’s what happens. That brings my predictions to 18-9 and my picks to 11-16

Now on to the next three matches of this group:

Match C2:

Wajima Tomoe (Hanasaku Iroha): 5th (Group F14)

Isurugi Mio (MM!): 8th (Group F2)

Imagawa Yoshimoto (Sengoku Otome): 12th (Group F9)

Match C6:

Aizawa Chizuru (Ika Musume): 6th (Group F14)

Satsukitane Mikako (Sora no Otoshimono): 11th (Group F11)

Hercule Barton (Milky Holmes): 7th (Group F1)

Match C10:

Himegami Aisa (To Aru Majutsu no Index): 11th (Group F10)

Tanamachi Kaoru (Amagami SS): 16th (Group F5), 3rd (Group F6)

Meiko Honma/Menma (AnoHana): 4th (Group F16)

Seeing how Hanasaku Iroha has been doing so far, even getting an old woman into the next round, I think the head hostess of the Kissuisou, Tomoe, should win against Mio. For the second match, I think this should be a close match between the three girls. I don’t think that Mikako can take advantage of being in Sora no Otoshimono to win and I think that Milky Holmes is a bit stronger than the girls of Ika Musume without Ika Musume, so I think Hercule will have a narrow victory here. As for the last match, Menma-chan shouldn’t have much problem winning because though Index and Amagami is probably stronger than AnoHana, Aisa and Kaoru are not quite strong enough to compete against Menma-chan. Today should be another “quiet” day…compared to tomorrow’s predicted bloodbath. I’ll be voting for Tomoe, Chizuru, and Menma-chan.

UPDATE: Because the voting site for the tournament is down, today’s match has been postponed to a later date.
