Well I'm sure those who could load the image would not mistake that character for anyone else but Nagi.

Was this throughout the whole day? Because the graph for Nagi was pretty steady the whole way through.

No wonder Nagi goes nowhere. At least she'll probably survived into main round, and finish around mid-bottom as usual (I mean, this is not JST, where she'll get into final and lose )

-Out of the Nova autoqualifiers, Eucliwood felt like having fallen the most. Charlotte also felt weaker, though that was too be expected. Kuroneko doesn't feel too much weaker, and Kanade is as strong as ever, so I'm relieved on those counts.
Eu-kun is just not THAT strong even last year anyway (at least towards the end, when she start losing to the like of Haruhi). At least she got Zombie S2 to boost her a little. Then there's Charlotte, who start strong and then basically start to weaken more and more towards end of last year. Without IS S2 anytime soon, I don't see her being even as strong as last year (Just too much competition...)

Yune is just completely disappointing, but you can't win them all.
She did come from a series that have zero popularity. As moe (and kawaii) as she is, name recognition counts more than actual "moeness" most of the time anyway...

At least Japan went for Ika-chan. But losing to Sora is just bad, VERY bad, as if last year's fluke loss in prelim is not enough...

Aside from Mayo Chiki girls making it a bit further, no surprises. None of the 2011 crew fared well enough to be top 16. Then again, Sena, Kurisu and Homura are in the next lot of matches and were indicated as being the strongest of that year.

It was only for an hour. Anyways, there were also people who had image loaded still thought that it was Isumi who had a wrong image, rather than Nagi who was mislabelled.

I have a remarkable ability to pick those who finished fourth in the results:Shirayuki, Wendy Marvell, Nymph, and Lucy Heartfilia. Well when I think about it not that remarkable, but that was interesting to see.

Poor Nano. She looked good the first hour to so here in this thread.

I think what disappoints me the most about these results is how all the new girls aren't able to even so much as scratch the 2011 competitors. In every single arena the winner was somebody who took part in ISML 2011. And the margin of victory was substantial (if not massive) in every single case.

This wouldn't be that big of a problem if all of the 2011 competitors were in their own division, but as is...

At a personal level, there's results I really like (Haruhi winning, Yuri winning, some others) and some I wasn't fond of (the three Madoka Magica girls not doing better), but the bigger issue overall is simply the glaring inability of the new girls to even hang with the ISML 2011 girls if these results are any indication. I guess we'll see how Akemi Homura can do...


A secondary disappointment for me was the lack of older girls managing to rebound much.

So far, this is looking like ISML 2011 all over again...

I guess the reason why the people voting the ISML 2011 girls over recent ones is probably unfamiliar with the anime of the new girls or doesn't like them as much.

With the exception of Madoka and Haganai, hardly any of the new girls belong to a series with a super big fanbase.

ISML is sometimes the last bastion for some of these girls, as Saimoe and Best Moe leave them behind.

The best of the new girls have yet to battle. Save your despair for 45 hours later, if you still have reason to then.

That's at least somewhat debatable. Besides, the problem with the next set of matches is that we're not seeing many (if any) cases of strong new girls going up against strong/mid-tier ISML 2011 girls.

The first batch of matches is much more clear-cut here, and what it's showing isn't promising, imo.

A good set of matches to kick off ISML for the year. Largely it seems the characters that finished in first didn't beat down everyone else as badly as they normally would in a 1 on 1 match. This makes it difficult to judge whether they changed in strength or not. From the Nova division I was quite impressed with Menma. She looks a fair bit stronger than when she lost to Ika Musume in an exhibition match last year. I think she would win a rematch fairly easily now. The two Fairy Tail characters looked quite good this year. I'm looking forward to seeing how well Erza Scarlet does in the next set of matches. If Kisaragi Chihaya's performance is any indication, the Idolm@ster characters don't look too hot. I expected her to at least be able to beat Poplar. It's too bad since I really like Chihaya a lot. While Ohana isn't weak, I also expected a bit more from her. I thought she can stick a bit closer to Yuno. For the second year in a row, the off season is not kind to the Hayate characters. Nagi once again took a fair sized hit in strength and falls below Ui and Last Order. Despite the ability to vote for two character, some characters are still getting hammered by split votes. Houki should still be way stronger than Poplar. Isayama Yomi really shouldn't doing better than Rei and Asuka.

The real interest for me wasn't in Day 1 - it was Day 2. Sena, Kurisu, Kobato and Tomoka are characters you think have decent shots at winning their group out of 2011 airings.

ARENA 01: Erza Scarlet Hecate Hyūga Hinata Index L. Prohibitorum [Misaka Mikoto] Suigintō [Yūki Mikan]
*(Obvious choices)
ARENA 02: [Hanekawa Tsubasa] Hoshina Utau Izumi Konata Kushieda Minori Nagato Yuki [Saten Ruiko] Shiina Mafuyu
*(Voted Hanekawa for Nisemonogatari rather than Bakemonogatari. Ruiko > Mafuyu was kind of tough for the other vote)

ARENA 07: Astarotte Ygvar Makise Kurisu Miki Sayaka [Nakagawa Kanon] [Shiina Mayuri] Shinonome Hakase Victorique de Blois
*(Mayuri is my main choice, but deciding on my second choice with Lotte and Kurisu in the same match was very tough)
ARENA 08: [Akaza Akari] Anjō Naruko Kanzaki H. Aria Kirishima Shōko Kōsaka Kirino [Minato Tomoka] Oshimizu Nako
*(Toughest group. I had to leave out Aria, Shouko and Kirino.)
ARENA 09: Amami Haruka [Dalian] Elucia de Lute Irma [Hasegawa Kobato] Horizon Ariadust (P-01s) Kuroi Mato Yarizui Sen
ARENA 10: Aragaki Ayase Irisviel von Einzbern [Shiomiya Shiori] [Ueno Kirika] Uryū Minene Yamada Aoi Yuzuriha Inori
