Wow Akari's votes were actually legit. Sh*t Just Got Real.

So the First Preliminaries come to a close and we now have some sort of idea who to watch out for and which characters can defeat the SAKI SPAM. They're about to beat the Saimoe record of most number of girls and there's still Prelim 2.

Akari VS. Toki for finals? It's like disappearance VS. Time Manipulation.

If Akarin makes the final, I'll shave my pubic hair. And I'm serious.

I just noticed that all of 2009's top 8 have returned this year. This is just the second time we have all top 8 from any previous year, after in 2006 when all of 2005's top 8 had returned. (only if we count characters from My-HiME and My-Otome as the same ones.)

More stats:
This year, 19 characters have been in top 8 at least once. Five of them (Shana, Nagi, Louise, Nodoka, Koromo) have been twice. If any of those five makes it again this year, she will be the first character in Saimoe history to reach top 8 three times.

The results seem to have stratified a bit. There's an elite group with 325+ votes, it's a fair bet the overall winner will come from here. Then there's a gap to a hopeful group each with about 250-300 votes, who presumably might have a chance with a bit of luck. Then there's a gap to the also-rans with 232 or fewer votes; I'm guessing a miracle is required for these girls.

Saki has 5 elites
K-ON! has 2
YuruYuri has 2 (Akari is actually in a group of her own being 22 votes ahead of her nearest rival, rather fitting I suppose).

Total 9 elite members.

Saki has 6 hopefuls
K-ON! has 2
Haganai has 2
Nyaruko has 2

The other series in this group have only only one representative each. Total 23 hopefuls.

Vote total doesn't really mean THAT much sometimes. Competitive group tend to have 100+ more votes compare to less competitive one.

And this is AST, there's absolutely no guarantee where the overall winner comes from

They won't have that benefit in second preliminaries although each second preliminary group does have numerous Saki characters.
There are about ~2-3 Saki characters that have an actual shot for the crown (actually it's just Toki). The rest will merely be cannon fodder against other high-tier contenders.

New girl wise, I would say it's something like Toki > Kuro > Subara Kirame ~= Ryuuka ~= Yuu > Arata ~= Ako ~= Shizuno > Teru. Rest are fodders.
Old girl wise, Nodoka ~= Kodomo Koromo > Captain ~= Momo > Buchou ~= Tacos ~= Ikeda ~= Saki. Rest are fodder...

Even that left 17 girls that are not fodder. Yep, Saki is THAT scary...I would say Toki, Kuro, Nodoka all have actual shots. Knowing this is AST, though, stranger things had happen before, and we may see a 2nd/3rd tier Saki girl (let say, Kirame) sneak into QF instead of the top guns. Of course, depends on grouping, we may see an all-Saki QF (Okay, doubt it since assassinations will prevent that).

Anyway, 1st group of Prelim, part deux.

Heavily supporting Nico and Kuroneko Chiaki. Also hope Haibara makes it, the record needs to continue.

EDIT: Seems like they relax the foreign voting restriction. Finally able to get a code for once, just hopefully people don't abused it (There's a reason why they restrict foreign IP in the first place...)

I wouldn't say no chance. While non-Toki Saki characters likely have little chance at beating Toki, if Toki gets sniped other Saki character can step up to fill her spot. It's sort of like Homura and the Puella Magi last year. Legit or not, Homura got taken out. However, it didn't even make a dent in the Puella Magi's chances of winning since the other 4 Puella Magi were also stronger than everyone else. Saki characters won't be as dominant. But I think Kuro, Nodoka and Ryuuka have at least a chance at beating anyone else.

Edit:
My Top 12 for Preliminary 2-1:

I agree with assassinations preventing an all Saki QF , since Saki maybe strong enough to have 29+ characters in the main tournament but since Saki's group so big I am not surprised if Saki assassinations happen early as round 1 even though despite that I think 1-3 Saki characters might sneak to the finals though.

Best of luck for Kirame, Yuu, Arata, Shizu, Ako, Teru, Captain, Momo, Hisa, Yuuki, Ikeda to beat the likes of Akari, Nyarlko, Chitanda etc. ^_^
I'm fairly doubtful about Saki, Nodoka and Koromo's chances as well.

An all Saki QF. Oh man. Two tables of crazy mahjong that would be.

Well...

Spoiler for Group 1:


10-2 (Total 10-2). Izumi miss by a vote, although she'll be fodder either way. Mai-chan don't get to troll this year...

And goodbye to Sui, who barely miss the mark in her own 1st prelim group, along with Kaga Rin, who don't get any love...

At least Haibara makes it again as the fodder. I'm still disappointed at Kuroneko Chiaki, though, only pulling in 2nd Round at max # of votes...

For next group.

What reasons? Is it cause they assassinated Japan favorites?

aaand...welcome back fodder.

Laura almost not qualifying makes me sad, although laughing at some of the important characters from other series not qualifying makes it all better.

It's almost like tradition for her to make it into the main tournament.

Having been summoned to Japan's Moe Grail War at least 8 times before this 11th one, she's a veteran who knows the ins and outs of Round 1 more than anyone else.

I was able to get a code and vote yesterday. Of course, today, it's back to no code...

I'm more concern about fakes and spams and the like. Of course, not liking how foreigners rigged the result so their favorite goes out is another reason...
