Upon seeing the kanji for the main page on Google and the banner of Touhou's Komachi Onozuka I had my doubts for a second that this was International Saimoe but Seimoe instead.

Mixed feelings on the day... very sad that Holo lost what will likely be her final match ever. Glad that Tachi lost. And just to make my opinion known again, C.C. is still NOT in the least bit moe in my most humble of opinions.

Holo still should not have had to be the one the give-up a win so that everyone had at least one win .

Oh well, on to the next phase of the saimoe.

To be honest I find C.C. equally moe as Konata so I didn't mind for their match, but Ayase on the other hand. Seems like Tenshi is weakening now, to be honest I don't see Kuroneko becoming another Kanade in the future. If she does then it'll be disappointing a little.

The Angel fell. For the second time, she fell. Once, it would have been a miracle. Things that happen more than once aren't miracles anymore.

It's not as prestigious as giving Kanade her first regular season loss but any win over Kanade is an amazing feat. Some may credit the proximity of Oreimo's series finale giving Kuroneko a big boost to let her win. However, I don't think it really mattered all that much. Kirino and Ayase both look fairly normal. If you look at Kanade and Kuroneko's performances leading up to their battle, Kuroneko wasn't that far behind Kanade. Kanade has clearly lost a step after losing to Misaka. This is a close match so the result can easily change but I think Kuroneko could have won even if the series finale wasn't aired when it was. In any case, congrats to Kuroneko on a perfect regular season! The playoffs are a completely different beast compared to these regular season matches so good luck with them!

While there were some results that were out there, things were pretty normal for the last round of the regular season. The voters were a lot more excited about Topaz 1. Largely it's a bunch of slight underdogs getting larger than expected wins in their upsets. I expected Suguha and Kuroyukihime to be a bit stronger than their opponents but they end up with solid losses. There are also characters that were the expected winners getting big wins like Illyasviel and Inori over Nymph and Shinka.

There was a big upset attempt with trying to put Kobato over Rikka. However, the rallies fall short and Rikka still narrowly wins. Perhaps Shinka's underperformance on Inori was related to this upset attempt. You could probably tell from what I wrote above but I don't consider Kuroneko's win over Kanade a big upset. Unlike with Kanade vs Misaka where Kanade should have been far stronger than Misaka, Kanade's base strength isn't that much higher than Kuroneko's current base strength. Kanade losing was always a big possibility like with any other characters that are similar in strength.

One last necklace showdown. Can Misaka pull off the miracle this time?

At least in Illya's case, that can be accounted for by her being a hundred times more epic and moe in the last Prisma Illya episode, then she ever was in any of the other Fate series.

On another note. Good riddance, just single elimination to go, and this shit is over until next season.

Good to see you back. That's a possible explanation. I haven't had a chance to watch Prisma Illya yet.

It's not as prestigious as giving Kanade her first regular season loss but any win over Kanade is an amazing feat. Some may credit the proximity of Oreimo's series finale giving Kuroneko a big boost to let her win. However, I don't think it really mattered all that much. Kirino and Ayase both look fairly normal. If you look at Kanade and Kuroneko's performances leading up to their battle, Kuroneko wasn't that far behind Kanade. Kanade has clearly lost a step after losing to Misaka. This is a close match so the result can easily change but I think Kuroneko could have won even if the series finale wasn't aired when it was. In any case, congrats to Kuroneko on a perfect regular season! The playoffs are a completely different beast compared to these regular season matches so good luck with them!
A couple points:

1. You might be underestimating how big a boost Kuroneko received from the Ore no Imouto finale. From what I read, I can easily see that creating a rush of sympathy votes for Kuroneko.

2. You might be underestimating how much the Ore no Imouto finale boosed all of its major ISML competitors. I mean, Ayase almost cracked 6,000 votes and Kirino won by a massive amount. Ayase received more votes this round than any other girl on the Stella side.


But one thing's for sure. The Angel has become mortal. With two fairly recent losses, Kanade's no longer head and shoulders above the rest of the field, which was the case for a long time (excluding a brief period in ISML 2011 Postseason).

Things are becoming a bit more interesting, as right now there are 5 different girls that I could picture winning the Diamond Necklace without a lot of sniping being involved. Previously, I figured it was Kanade's to lose unless she got sniped.

Kanade vs Kuroneko went down pretty close to what I expected based on their performance throughout the rest of Topaz. I would have predicted Kanade with 51.35% and Kanade ended up with 49.82%. If Kuroneko boosted a lot from the finale, Kanade also brought in a boost to almost exactly match it.

Ayase and Kirino's matches also went almost exactly as expected. That's their normal strength after boosting from all of season 2. Remember than Ayase and Kirino put up 54% and 53% on Mio even before the finale. Both of them are very strong and their Topaz 7 performances are in line with what was expected from them.

Diamond circlet will go to Kanade, Kuroneko or Misaka. I don't really see how there are 5 potential candidates. The next two most likely winners are Eucliwood and Taiga and they don't stand much of a chance. After that are Ayase and Kirino and the results would have to be really weird for one of them to win over Kuroneko.

Not necessarily. You note about a 1.5% discrepancy between what you expected and what the result was. Why couldn't that discrepancy be due to a slight boost for Kuroneko?

As you point out, having Ore no Imouto airing this season has likely been boosting its major characters all along, but I think there's reason to think that the finale might have topped it off even a bit more.

Eucliwood's strength has always been pretty mysterious to me, so I've learned over time to never count her out unless she's going up against a very similar but stronger character like Kanade (actually, Kanade is probably the only character I would completely count out Eucliwood against). I can imagine a scenario where Kanade loses to Kuroneko or Misaka or somebody else and then Eucliwood later defeats the person that defeated Kanade.

If Ore no Imouto's finale has boosted its characters further, then I would expect Kirino to be one of the main beneficiaries of that, moreso than Ayase. Kuroneko is probably still stronger than Kirino, but I could see a scenario like, say, Mikoto defeats Kuroneko and then loses to Kirino as Kuroneko fans want to "revenge snipe" Mikoto and hence fully lend their support to Kirino.

So I think the 5 potential candidates are Kanade, Kuroneko, Mikoto, Eucliwood, and Kirino. I agree with you that the first 3 have a better chance at it than the last 2, though.

Anything is technically possible. I just give my interpretation of the results we get. 1.5 is well within natural variance. Even if you want to call it a boost from the finale, it's a really small boost. I personally would have expected a boost from the finale, but the result don't match with this belief. It's possible the match was actually too close to the finale so not enough people had a chance to watch it before voting.

Eucliwood doesn't look as strong as she was last year and she's never looked as strong as Kanade (and now Kuroneko). She hasn't really done anything to show she has a chance to win.

Kirino isn't going to beat anyone Kuroneko can't. Kuroneko is way stronger than Kirino.
