Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 – Round 1 – C3/C7/C11

As stated in the update yesterday, the second set of Group C matches was postponed because the voting site was down for a while. So for now, we’ll have to wait until perhaps the next rest day, which is on September 2, for this match to occur. That day is not official yet, but rest assured, this match will happen eventually. With that out of the way, let’s look at the next set of matches, which should be a very interesting one:

Match C3:

Sendou Erika (FORTUNE ARTERIAL): 10th (Group F4)

Tsurumi Chiriko/Tsuruko (AnoHana): 8th (Group F6)

Kaname Madoka (Madoka): 1st (Group F1)

Match C7:

Sakuma Rinko (Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san): 15th (Group F13), 7th (Group S2)

Arashiyama Hotori (Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru): 12th (Group F1)

Sae (Hidamari Sketch): 13th (Group F1), 5th (Group S6)

Match C11:

Q (C): 11th (Group F14)

Run (A Channel): 5th (Group F4)

Akai Ringo (Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi): 16th (Group F4), 1st (Group S3)

That’s right! Today is her match. Before the main tournament started, I thought that she should have no problem until at least the group finals. However, that was before seeing how powerful the anti-Madoka faction is. Because of this potent force, I’m starting to doubt whether she can make it far. But, unlike Homura-chan, who had to face a strong Mikoto-chan, Madoka-chan isn’t facing particularly strong characters right now. So for now, I think Madoka-chan will win this, though Erika and Tsuruko could take the win away from her. If that happens, I’m less likely to think that the other Madoka girls, Sayaka-chan, Kyouko-chan, and Mami, will advance to the next round.

For the second match, we have a match of not-so-powerful girls. I think that Sae will win this match because she is from Hidamari Sketch. As for the other match, I see Run-chan winning this, though Q from C could possibly make it close…but not close enough. I’ll be voting for Madoka-chan, Sae, and Run-chan.

Well, the draws for this tournament have been done and looking at the draws, this should be an interesting tournament. Before I go any further, I will say that all five Madoka girls and Charlotte are all in different groups. Whether you like it or not, they will not beating each other up for now. Does that mean that they’ll take six of the eight final eight spots? We’ll see right now by going through each group and major matches that will or could happen:
