Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 – Round 1 – C4/C8/C12

We have three more matches in the books and Madoka-chan, Hotori, and Run-chan have won. Here are the results:

Match C3:

1. Kaname Madoka (Madoka): 285 votes

2. Sendou Erika (FORTUNE ARTERIAL): 120 votes

3. Tsurumi Chiriko/Tsuruko (AnoHana): 67 votes

Match C7:

1. Arashiyama Hotori (Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru): 191 votes

2. Sae (Hidamari Sketch): 140 votes

3. Sakuma Rinko (Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san): 86 votes

Match C11:

1. Run (A Channel): 220 votes

2. Akai Ringo (Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi): 115 votes

3. Q (C): 87 votes

It appears that the anti-Madoka force decided not to show up, at least not for this match. Madoka-chan easily wins her match, beating Erika in pretty light voting. It’s still hard to tell whether the other Madoka girls will survive, but they at least survived…for now. Hotori and Run-chan also easily managed to win, though their margin of victory was not as big. That brings my predictions to 20-10 and my picks to 13-17

And now, the next three matches in Group C:

Match C4:

Kuronuma Sawako (Kimi ni Todoke): 15th (Group F12), 12th (Group S2)

Laura Bodewig (Infinite Stratos): 7th (Group F15)

Miyamae Kanako (Maria Holic): 10th (Group F9)

Match C8:

Francesca Lucchini (Strike Witches): 4th (Group F12)

Sanya V. Litvyak (Strike Witches): 3rd (Group F16)

Usami Mimi (Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi): 26th (Group F1), 9th (Group S3)

Match C12:

Rebecca Anderson/Becky (DOG DAYS): 12th (Group F14)

Seraphim/Sera (KoreZon): 10th (Group F7)

Koumoto Madoka (Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi): 14th (Group F5), 2nd (Group S2)

Infinite Stratos is a pretty strong force in this tournament, so I think Laura has a good chance of winning her match. Kanako might give her a challenge, but I don’t think she’s strong enough to beat Laura.

Unfortunately for Strike Witches, they have two of their powerful girls fighting each other in this round. Fortunately, their opponent is much too weak to win, even if Sanya and Francesca split votes. It’s a bit hard to say which of the two will win, but I think Sanya will come out on top.

KoreZon hasn’t been doing well in this tournament. However, for today, Sera might be able to win this for her group. I think Becky and Madoka are a bit too weak to take the win away from Sera. I’ll be voting for Laura-chan, Sanya, and Madoka.
