The first of the quarterfinal matches have just finished and Erica has won. Here is the result from that match:
1. Erica Hartmann (Strike Witches): 383 votes
2. Astarotte Ygvar (Lotte no Omocha!): 255 votes
Looks like we won’t have another Kugyuu girl champion. Lotte looked like she had a big lead in the beginning, but really, Erica had the lead. Lotte could not catch up in the end, producing another upset. Predictions are now 0-1 (116-37) and picks are 0-1 (77-76).
Sakura Kyouko (Madoka): 1st (F5), 56.3% (G12-1), 67.9% (G4-2), 63.5% (G2-3), 63.1% (G1-4)
Kuroneko/Gokou Ruri (Ore no Imouto): 1st (F11), 52.9% (H11-1), 53.6% (H4-2), 62.1% (H2-3), 59.7% (H1-4)
Kyouko-chan is not the strongest of the Puella Magi, but seeing how weird this tournament has been going so far, I think that Kyouko-chan can upset Ruri-chan. Ruri-chan certainly is strong and I think that Ruri-chan could certainly beat her, but Kyouko-chan will be able to overcome this and win. Also, I’m sensing a Kyouko-chan/Sayaka-chan final for some reason. I’ll be rooting for Kyouko-chan.
