It's called Best Moe Tournament. It's going to disappear soon if someone does not knock some sense into the admins.

^^ Haha yeah. In essence, KBM is a pretty awesome tournament but the lack of competence with the administrators is really killing it.

This is match that nobody is seeming to care about. Either that, or some IPs have been blocked. In any case, this is a big, big surprise.

I believe it's the first option because at this rate that'll be dumb if they IP block.

So far it looks like a curb-stomp, but with the IP restrictions it is a country curb-stomp and NOT the big city match these ladies deserve.

Big City? I prefer ZA WARUDO!

Spoiler for Another shameless plug (not Cryostat).:


98 to 60 in favor of Yuu in the Group E Final. Boy, we will be lucky to see this one crack 400, let alone 550.

Spoiler for tribute:

Strange, isn't it? Yuu picked up over 600 votes in a previous match, yet it looks like she will struggle to top 300 in this one; and it's not as if that previous match was a big one.

Real quiet match today. Sanya isn't even trying to put up a fight.

A little something I noticed is that Saki's name is in East Asian order while Toki and Hisa's are in Western name order. You may want to choose just one naming order for Japanese names for the sake of consistency. Otherwise, good work.

Paging Flying Officer Eila Ilmater Juutilainen your presence is required as it looks like Flying Officer Alaxandra Vladimirovna Litvyak, or "Sanya" to her friends has fallen asleep and requires assistance to make the stage. A long, slow and and tiring day for us all I think. Excuse me could someone from the Achiga team retrieve Matsumi Yuu from the boiler room of democracy as well.

Well now that the ladies are present could Mr Sandy Nelson 'do his stuff, and give us here a real play-on'


Best Drum-roll ever, later......


The Winner of Group E and the Snowflake Medal for 2012 is......

Spoiler for Group E Result:


The voters aren't going to give Yuu much of a chance after this low turnout. This might be the end of the road for her. Capitalists win the Final Cold War.

I'm fine with either. Kuro's likely to win this, but SUBARA gets a meme boost, which I'm sure Mami had last year.

Mami's meme was bigger. And that makes six, which is a new record I believe for most quarterfinal reps from the same series?

Prediction- Kuro and I'm expecting low vote counts.

On the other hand, it would allow for other shows to have a representative in the quarter-finals, and personally, I'd prefer variety over a huge amount of characters from a show that I don't care about.
For this one sounds like a good idea but the issue I see is what if the faction boost the weaker character's strength because of that.
