Since the main site haven't fully up yet,so i guess they still haven't conduct the character nomination part yet..
Yep, it's the nomination list. Not sure it's complete, but all of my prospective votes are on it, so... maybe?
And they are allowing votes for people from the web Haruhi series, Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san. Awesome.
Yuki with a guitar or Yuki with bunny headphones?

Looks like it's that time of the year again. I'm anticipating that explosion between Haruhi/K-On and the anti-Kyoanists.

Seven:

Munto (TV + movie)
Clannad After Story
Lucky Star (OVA)
K-On!
Haruhi 2009
Haruhi-chan
Nyoro~n


Munto....I don't expect much out of Munto to be honest.

Clannad:
Kyou has her OVA due very soon.
Nagisa should be dangerous...more so than last year.
Tomoyo is still Tomoyo
I have doubts on Kotomi, Fuuko, Yukine, and Ryou this year.
I'm still hoping for Ushio and Mei.
Mei didn't have much airtime but managed to outmoe a lot of character in her limited time.
Ushio seemed to melt frozen hearts...even of the people who didn't like Clannad.

Lucky Star:
The Hiiragi Twins will be less dangerous this year, but should still be competitive.
Konata should have lost some steam by now.

K-On!:
Mio, Yui, and Azusa should have a good run.

Haruhi 2009:
Haruhi, Yuki, and Mikuru...assuming they aren't forced to take each other out like last time...will be very dangerous...Especially later on if they survive...especially Yuki.

Haruhi-chan:
They are all dangerously cute in chibi form, but Yuki-chan and Achakura are probably the most dangerous combination from this series.

Nyoro~n:
Churuya-san is about the only moe factor this one has...aside from Ashakura.

Yuki Nagato vs Akiyama Mio is the only match worth looking at this year's saimoe, seriously the rest of the people be it KyoAni or not will not be able to defeat either fo these 2 this year, the only non KyoAni threat atm is Aisaka Taiga and Hinagiku. Japan's recent polls further confirm the power that Nagato and Mio hold

This year will be interesting with so many good characters going to compete but I felt that there is a few dark horses around this time. Those that I think ould be a treat to the kyoani group is Strike Witches and Index's gang especially Biri biri. Japan loves Tsundere and Loli.

This is Japanese Saimoe, and typically, the strongest exit the earliest. Concentrated anti-votes are a powerful force, strong enough to stop Kagami via. Rena, and Suigintou via. Louise. There is no guarantees, especially not for Mio and Yuki who will have a large target painted on their back before the competition even begins. The more power they hold, the harder they are likely to fall.

Well.... I wouldn't put TOO much on hate voting this time around. They'll be there, but I don't think its going to be that strong, if last year's saimoe was of any indication. Even fake voting didn't go out of hand if memory serves correct, plus there really ain't that big of a rivalry between two major factions this time around.

In any case, I really do think it's going to be a Kyo-Ani Saimoe this year. You got the Clannad gang (though to be fair, I don't think they'll be much of contention), Haruhi gang (most dangerous being of course, the God Slayer), the Lucky Star gang (including last years winner, the True Love Warrior [<3 whoever gave her that nick]), and the newcomers of K-on (Mio being the most popular).

If there's a matchup I wanna see, its Mio vs Kagami, as they pretty have the same role and function for their group.

It's more a "I have to get rid of this character, so my character has a better chance of winning," not hate voting. It didn't really happen as much last year, but I still noticed a good deal of anti voting. Unfortunately, the anti-voters seemed to completely avoid Kagami...It wasn't as bad as the year before, but that doesn't mean it won't jump back into full throttle this year. You never know.

Yes, that's the usual strategic voting.

Well, true, whenever KyoAni's around, the overhype is BOUND to bring in pure anti-votes. I mean, I am one of those people who just can't stand overhype, so I've been known to anti-vote sometimes for the sake of sanity. In the end it's futile, unless there's real strategic voting going on, hate or anti-votes alone don't usually pull through.

Speaks the truth.

And where will be a legion of them willing to do so too. Methinks it won't be a complete cake walk for K-ON. My only true fear of them is Mio...and maybe Azu...

mM, I meant strategic votes, not sure what I was thinking when I said 'anti' since I already mentioned most voters don't vote against out of pure hate for the character.

Anyways...Not too many characters this year I can look forward to. A bunch of Kyoani, and...a few tsundere...and, fffff-

I'll just stick to supporting Hinagiku. If I can even vote that is!

And you just made me stop an error in my previous post... Next time I need to be sure I erase the previous phrase I was gonna use >_<.

The only thing K-ON should be afraid of is Haruhi really. If there's Haruhi in, there's gonna be a slight problem, at least for the less popular K-ON girls. Although Yuki is apparently Haruhi's juggernaut, while K-ON can take confidence is many of its girls. Not sure what other series could go against KyoAni hype.

On the other hand, while many people bash Munto, in terms of Saimoe I'd actually vote for the girls, provided they don't go against any of my favorites (like Yui or possibly Ritsu).

@Demi Well, there ARE people who just hate a character, there are others who hate hype and/or the hyped fanbase of a character/series, and others who try to plan ahead.
