International Saimoe League 2010

Starting January 1st 2010, International Saimoe League 2010 will begin after two successful years. The website for 2010 is currently under construction, but you can still access all of the data for ISML 2008 and 2009 with the below link. While most of the ISML procedures will stay the same, there will be changes that the ISML staff believes will produce a more fun and exciting year. Here are a few things you can post about while waiting for ISML to start:
  • Which characters will you nominate for ISML 2010?
  • Which new characters from 2009 will have a good chance in ISML 2010?
  • Which ISML 2009 characters will gain/lose popularity?

Remember to participate in ISML next year! You can visit us at the link below:

International Saimoe League 2010

The person you want to be, things you want to say,
Important things, things that are true,
Who you are, what you've yet to realize,
Mysterious things, happy things,
All of these are inside yourself.




If you want to help us out in running this event, visit us @ #ISML on irc.rizon.net

Nomination Phase:
-This year, the nomination slots increased from 8 to 10!
-But there's a catch. You have to nominate from 3 different series.
-Oh, and you also have to nominate at least 4 characters!
-Slots are unweighted, so all of your nominees receive 1 vote each.
-This phase will last for one week, starting from January 1 to January 7 of 2010.

Do NOT Nominate:
Spoiler for characters already qualified:

Preliminary Phase:
-Preliminaries will change vastly from 2009. It will be more difficult to enter the regular season.
-A total of 126 characters will participate from other saimoe tournaments of 2009 and the nomination phase.
-The first six voting days will consist of groups of round-robin, producing 14 which will advance.
-Then, the remaining contestants will enter a single elimination tournament, producing 14 more which will advance.
-Finally, Repechage rounds will accept 6 more contestants.
-This phase will last for about one month, starting from January 29 to February 27 of 2010.

Round-Robin Phase:
-The total contestants in the regular season have been reduced from 64 to 50.
-The seven periods will remain, and there will be an almost one-week break between periods.
-There will be no overtime. A draw will be credited as a draw; there will be no need for overtime wins or overtime draws.
-This phase will start March 14 and end August 8.

Double Elimination Phase:
-For the most part, Double Elimination will stay the same.
-Relegation matches will not happen for ISML 2010, but they will be replaced by more Exhibition matches.
-There will be no overtime. The head-to-head result during the regular season will be the first tiebreaker, followed by more tiebreakers.
-This phase will start September 6 and end October 2.

Exhibition Matches:
-Exhibition matches will occur during the ISML regular season as well as Double Elimination.
-Note that exhibition matches do not follow the rules of ISML and has no effect on the main tournament.
-You are not forced to vote in these matches, but participation is encouraged.

ISML Fantasy:
-ISML Fantasy will be held at the ISML Forums.
-Registration for a period of Fantasy will be the fantasy prediction of the first match of that period.
-The winner(s) of Fantasy may participate in selecting characters for exhibition matches.

Saimoe Statistics:
-As some of you may have noticed, our Statistics Page now includes other Saimoe tournaments.
-Check out past results for Saimoe 2002-2009 and KBM 2006-2009 to find out more about the history of saimoe.
-As this section of the site is new, there may be mistakes, so please note if you find any.

Technical Changes:
-After ISML 2009, minhtam1638 has resigned from the Commissioner Post.
-As for ISML 2010, the Commissioner for ISML will be Crisu.
-A short storyline will be presented at the beginning of each period.
-Our staff has grown as well, and you can find out who they are once the ISML 2010 site is up and running.

Rules for posting in this thread:

General Rules:
  • Absolutely no campaign posts allowed.
    This includes posts containing ANY campaign verbiage whether in whole or in part. Contributing to the debate is encouraged, provided you do NOT add "VOTE ABCD!!!" (or similar to the post itself). Simply rebutting another's post or opinion with "XYZ sucks" is totally unacceptable.
    To be clear:
  • Please do not create a post with the sole purpose to campaign for a character!
  • Do not add “VOTE FOR XYZ CHARACTER!!” anywhere in your post even if the intent isn't to purely campaign.
    We want intelligent, decent and fun discussions about the weekly Rounds and the subsequent winners & losers.
  • No Image campaigning.
    Do not create a post with an image or collage representation of a campaign poster. In other words: a PhotoShopped image of the character you want people to vote for with “vote for” text added to it.

Posting Etiquette:
  • Please do not cross post information about this tournament in other AnimeSuki threads.
    Keep all Anime Saimoe Tournament posts, campaigns, character information, voting links, etc., within this thread only or in your signature (signature size limits still apply).
  • No "meta-posting".
    Meaning: posting about another poster, the thread or about another post itself, is forbidden and will be deleted on-the-spot, regardless of intention. If you want to comment about another poster that’s off-topic and/or personal, send them a PM.
  • Any flame-baiting will be deleted and those people banned.
    Please keep the thread positive, fun and clean. If your choice doesn’t win the Round and you can’t discuss the fact without complaining, swearing and baiting people into arguments, then don’t post.
  • Do not create image only posts.
    You can, however, include an image with your discussion. If you want to visually support the character you’re voting for then please do so in the context of your original discussion and use only one or two images. We would encourage the use of “thumbnails” if possible (and please, no large images). PM the mods if you need help with posting thumbnail images.

So with 14+14+6 characters coming from nominations and the reduced number of contestants we only have 16 who carry over from 2009?

16...
16...

Just realizing while typing this, will that mean that the top16 from 2009 will automatically be in 2010? =3 *goes to nominate Nagi Sanzenin*

But I like the ~new rules, I really do.

Top 8 ISML
Top 4 Japan Saimoe
Top 4 Korean Bestmoe
All make it to the regular season without prelims.

Hopefully I didn't just give away confidential information. And God, I feel my life sapping away already.

Wake me up come march.

*Exits*

Please do not cross post information about this tournament in other AnimeSuki threads.
Keep all Anime Saimoe Tournament posts, campaigns, character information, voting links, etc., within this thread only or in your signature (signature size limits still apply).

Remember that there is an exception to this rule. You can trade information with threads that is devoted to other Moe Tournaments. Currently, this would mean that you post about this thread within threads for Saimoe and Best Moe Tournaments, but they are both on vacation until next year.

Anizone recently did a popularity poll for girls that appeared in series that started on October. Below are the rankings and the number of votes they got.

여성캐릭터

순위 이름 작품명 득표수

1위 미사카 미코토 어떤 과학의 초전자포 47
Misaka Mikoto


2위 쿠로누마 사와코 너에게 닿기를 34
Kuronuma Sawako


3위 인 흑의 계약자 - 유성의 쌍둥이- 21
Yin


4위 스오우 파브리첸코 흑의 계약자 - 유성의 쌍둥이- 19
Suou Pavlichenko


5위 키쿄우 이누야샤 완결편 13
Kikyou from Inu Yasha


6위 사텐 루이코 어떤 과학의 초전자포 12
Saten Ruiko


7위 사쿠라노 크림 학생회의 일존 11
Sakurano Kurimu


8위 우이하루 카자리 어떤 과학의 초전자포 10
Uiharu Kazari


8위 시라이 쿠로코 어떤 과학의 초전자포 10
Shirai Kuroko


10위 이카로스 하늘의 유실물 9
Icaros from Sora no Otonoshimono


Now, Since this is limited poll within Korea only, we need not concern ourselves with the ranking, and perhaps not even the vote numbers as Koreans really like Darker than Black. However, Anizone website is the website for the Best Moe Tournament, filled with veteran voters of moe tournaments, thus we can say that, for girls from latest October anime series, if her name isn't in the list, the chance of her making through our nomination phase is very, very small. Also, this poll gives another evidence that Misaka Mikoto's popularity is for real, and at this point, I believe her chance of making it through prelim into the Main 50 is very good. For me, this poll makes me rethink about my nomination plan for Hanato Kobato, who managed to get only 5 votes in the poll.

Oh man I fail so hard. I forgot to put "League" in the title.

Also Killuan, I forgot to put eligibility in the first post. Thanks for reminding me.

Now that I look back, it seemed only yesterday that I'd given my first greetings in the 2009 thread. Time sure flies.

Let's hope 2010 will be yet another fantastic year, complete with RAGE, despair, and copious amounts of lovely and indispensable tactical voting!

Hell yes. I should be retro-rewarded for winning two fantasy rounds.

Didn't you just steal this from Shugo Chara?

Anyway what's going to be the minimum number of arenas to vote for in the Round Robin phase?
Spoiler for Planned Nominations:

Originally I thought I might vote for Kozupii but I had remembered some statistics wrongly. It turns out Nanami was the second most popular Chaos;Head character.

Better read the first post before giving nominations with Yuki Nagato and Haruhi Suzumiya...(Of course, Konata and Yui are others you can't nominate as well, as they're already in prelims)

And better check what series you have Yui listed under.

oh yeah they're too famous already... guess I have to remove most of the ones I wrote...

btw, are famous characters from the internet (Kyonko), Vocaloids, and the ones that appeared in the light novels allowed?

Only anime-specific characters.

Yes! What gave it away? Was it the obvious corny lines or you memorizing the lyrics to one of the best OPs ever?

Memorization.
Although the lines are very Shugo Charaish anyway.
Well at least it's not "All girls have an egg in their soul."

I guess that explains why the Amu scenes in the 2009 character introductions both came from that opening.

Actually new question.
Will 2010 have a character introduction AMV as well?
