Nah, it will be another KyoAni moeblob
Come on, you know Saki will be there to knock Kyoani girls off.

On the other hand, as long as they don't put Nodocchi in a line full of Kugyu tsunderes, I'm fine...

KyoAni? K-On's disastrous Round 1 tour last year should also lend a bit of weight against that.

Who from Kyoani is there anyway?

I mean...
K-On: The one and out nightmare is still there
Nichijou: Like it's ever popular...
Hyouka: Basically two girls (Eru and Mayaka), which means they can only dominate so much.

Out of all the Kyoani girls, Eru probably has the best shot at the crown. Depending on competition K-On may make some noise, but it's not 2009 anymore. Also, comparing Hyouka is nowhere close to K-On in terms of popularity...

P.S. And no, it's not Hina and Shana's year as well. Too many competitions.

SHAFT, on the other hand is slightly hampered by having the reigning champion this year. So I do foresee some problems with backing-up with a second title in a row, given Japan's reluctance of repeat winners.

This means, for me at least, that I am looking outside my usual 'each-way' bet of Kyoani (this year has been slightly below par for them) and SHAFT.

Knowing that Japan is reluctant when it comes repeats in the finals I feel the chances of the Saki girls making it to the finals or winning is kinda low. To be honest I feel like the Finals might be a free for all among the newcomers with atleast one Kugyuu voiced character.

It is possible to get repeat characters in the final 4 or a series to represent the final 8 a combined total of three years at least (Nagi 07 & 10 - Hinagiku 08 - Isumi 09)

Usually a safe bet is two years max. Nodoka (Saki) has likely used up her maximum number of appearances in the finals. Maybe the newer Saki representatives might have a chance. While Nanoha won in 2005 and Fate reached the finals in 06, for the others, once a winner is named, the other representatives from the same series will have some stiff competition just to get out of the first round.

(Don't remember every year though)

Nanoha did reach Best 8 in 07.
Shinku also reach final 4 in 07 and was the 3rd straight year for RM to reach the Best 8.

New, fresh batch of Saki characters. And Toki/Ryuuka will be way up top among them.

I am sad to report the animesaimoe.org site seems to be down this week. I hope it is just a case of updating the database to accommodate the new tournament and not for any other unfortunate reason.

Site seems to be back to normal already.

I wonder if for this year they'll continue with last year's (and also from a few years back) 288-way bracket.

Another year of AST with many funny entries... like Bucephalus, a horse from Fate/Zero's Rider.

So far with nominations there seems to be around 2700 entries. They're currently during a discussion/checking stage for the entries that were nominated so far, and this will continue until 6/30. Then 7/1 will be the last period for people to nominate more entries. Funny that going to the list so far, there wasn't a single bleach entry nominated.

Bleach doesn't have a chance in hell for qualifying anyways. So, why bother?

Ryuka got up into the main draw one year, and promptly exited the same day if memory serves.

Indeed, but AST nominations is all about listing every character that appeared in an episode somewhere even though only 10% are really doing anything. And as I've been translating AST prelims names since a couple of years ago, I'm used to see all the big battle shounen getting lots of entries during noms. I wouldn't be surprised if someone nominate all the Bleach charas on that last day for new entries though.

Less than 48 hours to go until it is 'shut the gate' for any character thinking of 'making a run' for this year's crown.
