Shana vs Hina all the way.

1) Any other final won't have the same emotional pull.
2) The voter base has completely evolved beyond what it was last year.

Also, wontaek, don't make me mass message the Shana club @ MAL.

I dont know....as much as I dont wanna believe Shana will lose, this is Horo country + people who dont want to see Hina vs Shana again who will vote for Horo....In other words, if Hinagiku beats Kyou...then Shana will lose 100% guaranteed, if Kyou wins...then she might have a chance (but I still doubt she'll win)

Dammit, I wanted to have Hina vs Kyo finals. Oh well, I guess I'm gonna vote Horo, since I feel the odds are in Shana's favour this year if she's up against Hina (for sure Shana has the female vote, not to mention her followers will be more fervent since she lost last year).

I think Horo stands a chance against Shana. Horo has been dominating her matches in a Shana-esque fashion, and if Hina wins, then yes, it's more likely Hina vs. Horo, in which case, Horo is the favorite to win.

Hina vs. Kyou seems unpredictable though...

Shana vs Horo outcome will depend on Hina vs Kyou...tbh I think I rather see Kyou win for Shana's sake

It was foretold, a long time in the past, that this day, when my top 3 girls, Hina, Kyou, and Tomoyo, will face of against each other. Long have I dreaded this day, even though knowing that it was inevitable if they kept on winning.

To tell the truth, Horo vs. Shana match is like a battle for the soul of the Best Moe Tournament. Already it is being criticized for favoring Tsunderes; now if we have another Shana match in the final, than it cannot escape criticism of favoring certain two sword wielding characters, thus it is whether a new, different face gets into the final, or re-establishment of a status quo. Kyou is not considered as new compared to Horo, for she is from Kyoto Animation Series, a group that already has well established place in Best Moe, so Horo is the most different of all 4 in the final 4.

Those who think it is easy to pick the winner have no idea what is going on deep in the Anizone community. Heck.. you cannot imagine half of what happened for the last 24 hours. That was an endless nightmare debate. Multiple votes.. fairness of blog rushes.. resentment for championship repeat.. etc.

Even though Shana is one of my favorite, these semifinal members are not that exciting. Sadly, Moe is the second matter from now on... For the next few days there will be so many of "I don't want Hina win two in a row", "I don't want the final rematch", etc, etc. Such stragetic or emotional votes will dominate and distort the rest of the tournament.

Kyou vs Horo final can also happen.....maybe that what they will aim for

I'd like to see a final rematch, since with Akari out I'm firmly behind Shana, but I'll be voting Kyou over Hina in hopes that a Kyou win won't have a backlash against Shana against Horo.

Well this is quite surprising. I don't really "hate" any of the contestants even though Kyou deserves it the least. I'm predicting a Horo win overall, but I'll be happy if Hinagiku makes it to the finals.

Well, given the nature and history of the Korea Best Moe tournament, I'm not surprised. It's always two veterans vs. two newcomers.

2006: Suiseiseki, Shana, Haruhi, Eri
2007: Suiseiseki, Shana, Hinagiku, Tamaki
2008: Horo, Shana, Hinagiku, Kyou

Oh man, oh man, oh man. Horo's got the advantage now that she's the only one out in both I-Moe and J-Moe.

K-Saimoe's only 3 years old? Next year Kyou and Horo will be the veterans, with Hina and Shana retiring.

Really? Last I heard, it was a one-year break. Hayate no Gotoku Season II is confirmed, and you'd think we'd have a Shakugan no Shana III in a year or two as well.

And yes, the Saimoe phenomena only started in 2002 with J-Saimoe. K-Moe started 2006, I-Moe this year. And there are quite a lot more of these tournaments as well.
