Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 – Round 1 – D4/D8/D12

Another set of Group D matches have just finished and Ritos, Isana, and Tsugiko have won. Here are the results from those matches:

Match D3:

1. Ritos Tortilla (Shukufuku no Campanella): 158 votes

2. Mikogami Riko (Anymal Tantei Kiruminzoo): 113 votes

3. Senou Natsuru (Kampfer): 99 votes

Match D7:

1. Tachibana Isana (Yumekui Merry): 199 votes

2. Evangeline A.K. McDowell (Negima): 108 votes

3. Satellizer el Bridget (Freezing): 75 votes

Match D10:

1. Zenigata Tsugiko (Milky Holmes): 143 votes

2. Tatsuno Toshiko (Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru): 122 votes

3. Ootori Naru (Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai): 111 votes

I knew that Shukufuku no Campanella could bring some trouble for their opponents, but I didn’t see the weakness of Kampfer. Natsuru was close in the beginning, but she fell behind Ritos and Riko later on. Riko had a small lead in the first half of the match, but Ritos took a sudden jump halfway through the match. Riko started approaching Ritos near the end, but at the final hour, Ritos had a sudden jump in votes, giving her a comfortable victory. In the second match, Eva couldn’t get near Isana, ending Negima’s not-so-great appearance in this tournament. Maybe next year. In the other match, G4’s Tsugiko had a little bit more trouble than Isana, but Tsugiko never fell behind. That brings my predictions to 29-13 and picks to 22-20.

Now on to the last three matches in this group:

Match D4:

Ika Musume (Ika Musume): 2nd (Group F3)

Lynette Bishop (Strike Witches): 5th (Group F12)

Akiyama Mio (K-On!!): 2nd (Group F9)

Match D8:

Fukiyose Seiri (To Aru Majutsu no Index): 9th (Group F8)

Takanashi Nao (Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain dakara ne!): 3rd (Group F9)

Elis (Asobi ni Iku yo!): 19th (Group F5), 14th (Group S5)

Match D12:

Musujime Awaki (To Aru Majutsu no Index): 10th (Group F9)

Kanzaki Kaori (To Aru Majutsu no Index): 13th (Group F6), 11th (Group S6)

Yuno (Hidamari Sketch): 4th (Group F10)

In the first match, we have Mio-chan trying to prove that HTT is not a fading entity. However, she will have to face Lynette and she will have to face Ika Musume, who plans to invade this match today after losing to Homura-chan in the preliminaries. Seeing how much K-On!! hasn’t been doing well this tournament, I going to have to say that Ika Musume is going to win this. In the next match, I think Nao is going to win this, though Fukiyose might give her a challenge. In the last match, we have Yuno facing two Index girls. Today will be a case where split votes hurt, so I think Yuno will win this. I’ll be voting for Ika-chan, Seiri, and Awaki.
