Haha, I meant let's hope no one breaks six. In fact, let's hope no one ever comes close.

It will not happen. Not for at least another century. Minimum.

Might happen if the faction is 10x stronger than Madoka and Saki combined.

It still could be Sena/Shana/Louise's year.
Looking how dominating Saki it's less than 5% chance

In the end, for example, for all the talk about Akarin being a serious contender, she was brushed aside by Toki as if she wasn't even there...
I don't think the opposition is weak more like the Saki faction wants to hog all the glory I mean I think the opposition is strong but the Saki faction had to make even the strong opposition can't beat them. Well that's my hunch since I keep hearing "Oh let's make this a Sakimoe!" on 2ch.

Knowing Nodoka was in her group it is most likely Sena got a huge breasts combo vote with Nodoka.

Staying to see how far Team Achiga can go this year. Yu and Kuro advanced, maybe Ako can make it 3 for 3.

Things are shaking out as expected. What, another Saki match?

Pick: Ako
Predictions: Ako

Nodoka's one of the main Saki chars (aside from Saki herself) that I just don't care for. Here's hoping that Ako knocks her out.

That's basically right.

I think the Saki faction had basically two goals for J-SaiMoe 2012:

1) Get as many notable Saki characters through as many rounds as possible.

2) Have a Saki character (ideally Toki) win it all.


After those two, I don't think the Saki faction cares that much about specifics. If nothing else, it can make Saki vs. Saki matches a bit unpredictable, if it doesn't involve Toki. On the negative side, though, it can also mean that Saki vs. Saki matches have very low vote totals.

Well we don't know what animes spring 2013- spring 2014 (if Saimoe exists in 2014) will have so who knows what might happens.

Well that was a not quite thrilling cricket match yesterday, they better not be playing for a draw today though. It will make the "BBQ' later in the week have a bad after-taste.

Kuro wins as expected but vote totals have really dropped off now. While a Saki winner may seem inevitable, at this rate the remaining characters may not even try to change this.

The last of the 9 Saki characters that made Round 4 face each other today to be Saki's 20th straight win and to advance into the Top 8. Nodoka hasn't be challenged at all since the start of the main tournament. She did have some trouble with Kashiwazaki Sena way back in preliminaries. Nodoka also has a history of success in previous years of Saimoe. Like Nodoka, Ako hasn't really been challenged much either. Ako did beat Ika Musume fairly easily and Ika Musume used to be strong. Also back in preliminaries, Ako had trouble with Toshinou Kyouko. While it's safe to say both are very strong Saki characters, it's hard to say who is stronger between the two. I think I'm going with Ako since she's one of the main characters from Side A and isn't mostly relying on the past.

Vote:
Atarashi Ako

Prediction:
Atarashi Ako

I am making the bold prediction that no series from this point forward will have the same punch that Saki has had, and even if it's capable of doing so, the voters will not allow it to happen again. It's like Roy Lassiter's MLS scoring record (for all you soccer buffs) of 27 goals set in 1996. People come close to breaking the record, but they fall short. Such is the case with Saki.
