Now we only need a character or two to impede their victory. Who will have the honors this year?

Doubtful. The combined totals easily outnumber the individual Touhou girls, while a year ago, Kyou and later Kotomi nearly outstriped their competition completely (Kyou probably at two to one if she hadn't been locked in). They may be able to hold their ground...but do you honestly think they can take Fate?

Taiga is the one to worry about.

Guess we'll wait and see, but I don't think Fate's the one to worry about this year. Thinking a low top 16 finish, at best. And who knows where all these new voters will side, as there are bunches more than last year. Though that could all change if the movie makes it in time.

Taiga's a threat, I think...Still saying she's too Louise-like, though - And it will hurt her in 1v1 matches, but that's only speculation.

"Raise your anime flags at half mast for the 5 characters who deserve to be in ISML but were snubbed by the touhou characters."

Now, if Misuzu is left out by 5 slots or less...

lol, after at a loss with what MALMAT was, I checked MAL's clubs, and I'll be, I found it. Using such a cute image for the DP...Isn't the most brilliant of plans...

Dude, have you even SEEN my predictions for the coming 2009 season? Okay... 3rd to 16th, I have no hell of a clue, but I have Haruhi and Fate coming in as #1 and #2 seeds this year.

The creator of the club states in one of the comments that he used the plainest picture of Reimu he could find. It's still cute, though. Not a good idea to single out just one character like that.

And sorry for not giving a link. Someone posted it the other day and I figured everyone would know about it. Thing about that club is that I mostly agree with the "four points" they have posted. So, I guess I remain on the fence.... but it's a slippery one.

Expect wild vacillations in Mushi's attitude about Touhou in the year to come.

Yeah, but your predictions revolve around last years results. Backlash from winning last yr. will be huge, and these new voters don't seem very Nanoha-centric...Unless you have some other reasoning, I can sense your prediction falling flat on It's face. Testarossa will always be around for another year, but a second title? Only the movie can make it possible, and It's not releasing until may, and will take months for it to hit dvd's and be subbed.

Haruhi? Possibly. But I've no clue what to predict until I see a few rounds of ISML.

So they are trying to defend the sanctity of Saimoe by organizing rallies of people to vote based on reasons completely unrelated to moe. >_>

While I can defintely understand why people don't want the Touhou characters in the contest, actions like what that group is trying to do is not the answer. While you may dislike people voting for Touhou characters becuase they think the Touhou charcters are moe due to sources unrelated to the anime, voting against a character because of this regardless of if you find their opponent more moe is even worse.

I'm thinking Hinagiku if Hayate season 2 is really premiering in the spring this year. If they animate the stuff from the manga I think this will be a blowout unless Shana season 3 and/or Haruhi season 2 steps in this fall/summer. Fate will have a chance if the movie goes well this May (I think it comes out then), but I'm still not getting my hopes up for a high finish since she won last year...at most top 8 or 16. I see Nagisa doing well this year if she continues to be a non-fail lead like she is now. I expect Higurashi to do well, particularly Rena considering I already (or should know) the contents of the Rei OVA episodes.

.....as for round 2, results as predicted....still incredibly disappointed at the results of those I'm voting for 0-8...19 spots left....hoping for these at least: Yomi, Yuuko, Kotori....that's all I really care for at this point. If they don't get it, my voting tier for ISML is set in stone already.

I'm also assuming MAL's club is driving Makoto's (Kanon) votes high so I expect her to possibly clinch a spot.

I didn't say she was going to win the whole enchilida. I'm just saying she's still going to be the candidate to watch.

Yeah I also went 0/8. However, Shinku almost made it so at least I'm happy?

Also, in case anyone wants to know, here are some interesting data of the voting patterns between Round 1 and Round 2:

Characters with highest increased performance:
  • Chii: +4.38
  • Kasuga "Osaka" Ayumu: +4.10
  • Illyasviel von Einzbern: +3.71
  • Ranka Lee: +3.18
  • Nogizaka Haruka: +2.41
Characters with highest decreased performance:
  • Zange: -1.18
  • Shindō Chihiro: -1.71
  • Kirisame Marisa: -2.04
  • Seto San: -2.47
  • Vita: -3.35

I'de make you a cardboard bet(Or river swimming?), but I don't want to make a bet revolving around the failing of my waifu. But hey, all my comments on ISML seem to take a pessimistic approach, so this is nothing new.

Isn't that just the 1eps Ova coming out in spring? Well, wouldn't mind Hinagiku to win it all in any case, It's certainly better than what I'm expecting.

In other news.. do you know what I saw on Touhou places after results were posted?

"Vote in Nagi!"
"Holy cow. Even I didn't expect all of them to advance that soon. But whatever. I still won't stop until Misuzu and Yakumo get through."

Uh, I know what implied odds and pot odds are, so I am not willing to make a bet on Fate. Besides, my "Swim the Yangtze" bet at the moment is that a Touhou candidate will not make top 16 in this contest.

Seems quite many people frustrated with Round 2 result.....

But Seriously, not many voters at this point watched and knew all characters in each groups, since most of them are from recent series. So it's quite normal to pick out the girl you knows more about.

I'm myself not even a Touhou fan, and also watched quite a lots of recent anime series. Still 50% of my votes (2/4) each round went to Touhou group. But when the head-head battle start, i doubt if that rate can even be 10%
