0-3... A third place finisher and two in last place.
I don't even know why I voted for Sugino Ayumu...
I should have voted for Kasukabe Misao.
None of the matches were really close.
Not a very good tournament for me thus far
Well, one of picks should advance, right?

Round 1-3 of the AnimeSuki RUSH: 10:32:00 JST
Spoiler for rush:
3+1 rush: 2x Yutaka, 2x taco. All times nailed.
Still wish we had more people from last year rushing, though... Looking at the "on-time record" list from last year, I see "margafred, RenaDansen, Neutralizer, KaneDragon, Todkapuz, Kirino, Toast". Newt I know has connection issues...

Predictions: 4-0 (6-2)
Picks: 3-1 (4-4)
Hey, my ratio instantly got better by predicting all of the last round correctly. Awesome.
Bolded are picks, italics are predictions.

<<キャル・ディヴェンス＠Phantom ～Requiem for the Phantom～>> (Cal Devens @ Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~)
Moe attempted assassin loli is moe. But Yutaka will still take it with the waning LS power.

<<フローラ・スカイブルーム（アラン・ネイスミス）＠バスカッシュ!>> (Flora Skybloom (Alan Naismith) @ Basquash!)
Hoping on the strength of Strike Witches on this one. Maka may provide an upset. Rukia has no chance just because it's Bleach.

<<明石薫＠絶対可憐チルドレン>> (Akashi Kaoru @ Zettai Karen Children)
Inb4SakicharacterswinSaimoe. Seriously, the prelims showed their strength and I don't think Gertrud has the power to beat a Saki character. Regardless, I still <3 her.

<<音無芽留＠【獄・】さよなら絶望先生>> (Otonashi Meru @ Goku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei)
Utau is pretty strong, but I found Octavia absolutely moe and hot in Tears to Tiara. Zettai ryouiki ftw.

Well, let's see what the real count is, but I agree with Frustra. Looks like I'll finally do better than 0 or 1.

Round 1 current stats
PR2 [my pick that made it into the second round] 3+2=5
FR2 [my force pick that made it into the second round] 1+2=3
OR2 [overall pick that made it into second round] 5+3=8
H [Highest vote of the day] 1+1=2

FE [force pick eliminated from SaiMoe] 1 [Kitsu Chiri]
OE [overall pick eliminated from SaiMoe] 4
XH [Wrong prediction of highest vote of the day] 1
A powercast dominates the round.
My picks for Round 1-4
B01 [p1-01] Horo (Maybe Lawrence would change his mind and take on her offer)
B04 [p1-02] Yuno (Bath sessions are overwhelming)
B07 [f-05] Perinne Clostermann (An unknown force pick can't help it)
B10 [p2-24] Allison Whittington (Okay next year Saimoe would be Hitagi, last chance for her to show off the piloting skills)
Highest Vote Horo

Day 3 Winners' posters + extra material
4-0 (11-1) in predictions, and 1-3 (4-8) in picks. That went as expected, and Gertrud just couldn't keep up with the power of Tacos ;_; well, that's okay i guess, as Minna dominated. Octavia and Cal losing is also sad, but at least they put up a valiant effort. I'm fine with all the characters that won today, anyway.
That concludes group A, onward to Day 4, and first matches of group B.
Anime SaiMoe Tournament 2009, Day 4:
Time for my number two for this year's Saimoe, Yuno, to take the stage, and she's up against Prelim Group 17's topnotcher Tsugumi. However, I'm still confident that Yuno can make it through, since the group Tsugumi topped didn't feature many strong contenders from the past and present, as opposed to Yuno who had to contend with Kyou and Hanyuu.
Horo and Perrine should have no problem in their matches, and Miki should win her match through series mojo.
Curiously, my picks and predictions coincide today. So Horo, Yuno, Perrine and Miki it is.
