The XXXth Olympiad is over welcome to the Moe version, ladies start you engines.

Now I want a clean fight, no hits below the belt, no eye gouging and when I tell you ladies to go to a neutral corner, you go to a neutral corner when the bell rings "Let's get it On!".

Cardboard delivery has now arrived, do tuck in when appropriate now.

Yes, I can pay attention more to this shindig, now that the Olympics are over. And OMG, the blood spill from the brackets is starting, with Saki herself no less (either to spill blood herself, or take the lives of others).

The bloodbath begins! I am predicting a day one snipe of saki by maho, with cecilia and inami pulling through in their matches.

I was able to vote in 2nd Prelim. Haven't try today, though (Only work on my home computer...)

Alright, here we go~!

Picks: Maho, Miya, Reika
Predictions: Saki, Mahiru, Reika

First matches are always interesting since not everyone realizes the main round has started after the break, sometimes leading to surprising results. That being said, the gap should be too wide for Mahomaho to catch Saki, even though she's always competing with Saki (albeit a different one). Hard to say for A05 since it'll be close, but I'll be cheering for Myaa~ Nishishishi~

So yeah I live in Japan now, and I still can't get a code (wtf?). My home computer gives ERROR:PROXY規制中!!!(80) and my iphone gives コード発行制限中。。。しばらく待って。

Anyhow picks in bold and predictions in red. Both in bold red.

A01:
Takakura Himari @ Mawaru-Penguindrum
Doujima Nanako @ Persona 4: The Animation
Misawa Maho @ Ro-Kyu-Bu!
Miyanaga Saki @ Saki: Achiga-hen - Episode of Side-A

Himari is awesome, but this should be an easy win for Saki. But you never really know, especially on these first days.

A05:
Tachibana Miya @ Amagami SS+ plus
Huang Lingyin @ IS - Infinite Stratos Encore: Koi ni Kogareru Sextet
Inami Mahiru @ Working'!!

I've watched some of Amagami and IS, but all of Working ('cause Working is awesome). Inami is an easy pick here. As far as predictions I'd say the three girls are all fairly closely matched, so I'll illogically predict Inami just because...

A09:
Cecilia Alcott @ IS - Infinite Stratos Encore: Koi ni Kogareru Sextet
Oda Raika @ Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai!
Aoki Reika (Cure Beauty) @ Smile Pretty Cure!

Not a match I care about. I don't even know these characters except for the little bit of IS I watched.

As far as my vote today...

A-1: <<三沢真帆@ロウきゅーぶ!>>
A-5: <<伊波まひる@WORKING'!!>>
A-9: <<織田莱香(らいか)@パパのいうことを聞きなさい!>>

Predicton: Saki, Mahiru, Reika

First round of Saimoe is today. Misawa Maho has some bad luck. She's probably not that weak but Miyanaga Saki should be out of her league. For the second match I think Mahiru will win. Miya isn't that strong and I don't think the IS characters will do as well this year. Third match seems like a weaker version of the second match. I think Cure Beauty will take the match even if she doesn't seem very powerful.

Votes:
Miyanaga Saki
Inami Mahiru
Cecilia Alcott

Prediction:
Miyanaga Saki
Inami Mahiru
Cure Beauty

To be fair, Homura literally got cheated out of a win. No one is guaranteed to beat anyone else at any time if cheating occurs.

Then why is ANN saying otherwise?

Foreigners are technically capable of participating in the tournament; English-language instructions on how to vote have been provided by the Anime Saimoe fan site.

That page was written a couple years ago when it was true. Starting from last year the organizers have started to carpet IP ban based on ISPs.
