Excellent results!

Lots of close matches, which is always good to see in and of itself, imo.

Then, the girl I voted to win the necklace won the necklace.

And as I suspected, Exhibition 1 came down to Homura vs. Karen, and Homura won by a slim 7-vote margin! Thrilling photo finish for a Homura fan like myself.


The other exhibition matches were a mixed bag for me, but the two matches I cared about the most couldn't have went better for what I wanted, so that's great.

It's called high-floor, low-ceiling.

The voters who like one of these particular girls tend to like them more than almost anybody else, so their voters are their voters. But all of them have limited growth potential (Holo due to sheer age and lack of recent anime content, imo; Menma was a bit polarizing from what I can recall of AnoHana and discussions surrounding it; Yuno's a yandere, a character type that's a real love/hate "acquired taste" for a lot of people I find).

I find it funny that Taiga almost stole the necklace from Kanade.

Damn, I'm loving Menma's pic. Who do I need to thank for making it?

Can't say I was looking forward to seeing her in regular season. But she made it, so I'll still back her. So that's two nice surprises already. Sad for Mafuyu though, ah what I wouldn't give for SeiZon season 2.

Kanade's pic is a bit more nsfw than I would've expected. But her winning doesn't really surprise me. My vote went to Eu, and even if she didn't win, her strength is really high now. Can't wait for her to battle Kanade. Ah, what I wouldn't give to be able to vote for Tomonori too.

Also loving how 10,000+ voters turned up.

Well... one thing to take away is that the Bodacious Space Pirate girls are really weak. Kind of surprising. I wonder how Oka and Urabe will do, I assume they will show up in a later exhibition match.

As for Mikoto repeating as a tiara winner, I think she has a really good chance, just not this year. This year I'm betting it's Kanade vs Shana.

But because Mikoto is likely to get a lot of new material, she probably won't slip much. One year there just won't be a big new name in Nova, and then Mikoto will get her second Tiara.

Also, interesting that Asuka Langley can beat Aoi Yamada. Working really isn't that popular is it.

While I would've preferred Taiga or Shana, I can't complain about Tenshi's well-deserved win so congrats to her

That poster is to die for but I won't 'cos dying sucks. Insta-classic

I still would've preferred Kuroneko and Charlotte because of two things:

1. They're really cute, cool, and awesome characters.
2. They're voiced by Kana Hanazawa my favourite seiyuu. She's so awesome!

Well Kanade wasn't my pick to win, but can't say it wasn't deserved. Had more than enough support to pull it off.

I only just started following now, stupid me. I'm a bit surprised at how poorly the Madoka characters are doing, even though this is only their first year in ISML. Is this hype backlash at work or something?

Also surprised to see Konata and Kagami still in after all this time.

I believe this has more to do with which fanbase took interest in ISML and which did not. If someone reignite the passion in the Madoka fans and gets just 200 more votes from them for the next 3 matches, Homura and Kyouko may build upon that boost to start winning as hyped.

I enjoy the "sister" theme for the first exhibition match. For the second, maybe Barni and Kurata have a better chance than Ririchiyio and Soushi, but they are up against strong opponents as well. If they get close, I'll say we may see them next year.

I'm just getting back into the ISML scene and somehow I'm not surprised Madoka and Sayaka haven't made it to the tournament. Or maybe it is surprising because last I checked PMMM's sales figures were second only to Bakemonogatari.

Then there's our usual suspects returning such as the Kugimiya tsunderes (isn't that redundant?), some Key girls, ect. Nothing unexpected there.

What I am wondering is how characters like C.C. and Holo keep making it despite nothing from their series for who knows how long. Oh well. I guess we need someone to serve as a punching bag for the heavy hitters.

You don't want to talk badly about Holo here. There's an ardent Holo fan here, and he'll own you for insulting his favourite girl.

Seriously though, Rajura's a cool person. Be nice to Holo.
