I forgot about this, just proving how my short memory plays a role. I apologize. But I always try to vote moe in a saimoe tournament.

Well, since you guys ARE in charge of the contestant pages, you can do them whenever, of course. But at the very least, remove the Past Saimoe History blurb so that no newcomers to the site get really really confused...

So... everyone already made their nomination list (or at least have an ideia of how it will be)? Are you making your list based on the characters that have more chance pr the ones you like more (or a mix of both)? At the beginning I wanted to make my list based on characters that had more chance to go well in the nominatios and the tournament.

I didn't want to see a character enter the tournament just to be owned neither wanted to waste my nomination slots with characters that won't have any chance of being on the top 32 of the nominations while I could use then to actually make a difference with characters that would have a good chance of entering.

But then I couldn't resist and decided to at least nominate some of my favorites regardless of chance. More time passed and in the end moe won me over and most of my nomination list is based of the ones I like.

As for now my nominations are (may change but it's unlikely) :

# Minori Kushieda - Tora Dora (10)
# Illyasviel von Einzbern - Fate/Stay Night (8)
# Asuna Kaguraza - Negima! (6)
# Hecate - Shakugan no Shana (5)
# Perrine-H. Clostermann – Strike Witches (4)
# Mikan Yuuki - To Love-Ru (3)
# Hayate Yagami – Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (2)
# Setsuna Sakurazaki - Negima! (1)

I'm probably going to wait to make my list and nominate characters from the newer anime from this and next season, since they haven't had a chance to enter from previous tournaments.

Nagi, Tsugumi, and Zange-chan come to mind [All from Kannagi, obviously.].
Lol, I want to see people vote Tieria.

Since 2002, the Saimoe contest generated beautiful battles, as thousands of anime-lovers around the world gave their all to ensure that their favorite girl will win. This prestigious battle has long since defined the term "moé". Champions from young girls emerged, and they gave way to glory. In 2006, this prestigious contest became even more prestigious, expanding from the land of the Rising Sun to lands from the four corners of the world. Not only did Japan garner attention, but so did Korea, and for the past couple of years, the contest has become unique, one of a kind contest that has long since given attention to names - names that will be inscribed in Saimoe history forever.

However, Saimoe tournaments of Korea and Japan have also received much criticism from the disappointed. The single-elimination tournaments held in Japan and Korea were decided at random, and while only the best were able to enter, randomized pairings shattered dreams of many, and raised hopes for others. In the end, only the best of all girls survived.

Now, it is time for the innovation, the experience and the glory of the new age. 64 have been chosen to take part in the first round robin league, where the top 16 girls will move on to the double-elimination tournament for one of the most prestigious titles in the world. Now, 63 matches await each. All that is left now is to do battle.










Okay, joke aside, it's like Best Moe and Saimoe except, as that above stated, it's a round robin league, which means that each contestant faces all the others, instead of an elimination format. So just because one character got unlucky and faced a really strong character and loses doesn't mean she's out of the tournament.

Edit: Does anyone else agree with me when I say that the first post should be updated so we can get rid of this part of the post:
Quote:
With a immensely elite field, many questions remain to be answered.

Is Clannad the new dominance in Saimoé, or does that feat still belong to Hayate no Gotoku?

Can old-timer Cardcaptor Sakura actually compete with the new girls?

Could Haruhi Suzumiya finally get that elusive Saimoé tiara, or will China champion Konata Izumi stop her very idol?

Will Suiseiseki bring Rozen Maiden back from the void to win her third title, or will Shana join her greatest rival as a multi-champion?
We know the answers to these, as they were made so they would be answered at the end of and during the 2008 competition.

They might be preparing, but those of us who aren't involved in maintaining the competition or the website or anything probably won't have anything to do until the first of January, I believe, when nominations begin.

Done. You'll receive your friend request soon!

Doesn't everyone want to see a fight between the purple quad-squad? [Kyou, Ryou, Kagami, Tsukasa] Hey minhtam2448, try to have such a match!

I'd try, but the last time I tried to do schedule the matchups manually, I ended up unintentionally giving Kagami just about TWO easy necklace routes. This method is much fairer.

Besides... Kagami vs. Tsukasa may be somewhat an unpredictable matchup, but Kyou vs. Ryou is completely lopsided. Not to mention that there's a chance that Ryou might not even show her face in 2009...
