Seems like Ranka's raking out the Macross Frontier Pow in this tournament. Ranka's popularity in 2chan surprised me. I didn't think she's this popular. She's no push over lol
I guess this is your first Saimoe. (Psst... It's 2ch, not 2chan... they're two different things...)

You're looking at voting from the prelims. The total number of votes floating around in any round depend on a bunch of things, such as the characters that are in that round. With Hina and the twins present, you're sure to have high participation and high vote counts. Comparing results between rounds is like comparing apples and oranges.

Once the main thing tournament starts, it gets even more complicated, with people trying to vote off the more popular characters, or revenge voting after their favorite loses, and so on. Good luck trying to figure out popularity from all that.

Sheryl is moe enough to be in Saimoe, she's obviously not a moe blob but neither are C.C and Mion who have gone fairly deep into SaiMoe's/Best Moe's. IIRC the year Rika won Saimoe Mion absolutely slaughtered everyone except K-1 in a poll on the higurashi website for most popular character. Even though Mion is my fav character from Higura I wouldn't vote for her over Rika, Hanyu and Rena in a Moe contest.

Sheryl being in Saimoe isn't exactly as bad as Clare and Terasa from Claymore now is it XD?

And you shouldn't look too much into preliminaries, big names like Hina and the twins can really inflate votes. People making predictions based on preliminaries votes have been burned a lot. Some characters can go from champ to chump in the space of a round. I've seen characters who scored 500 votes in the previous rounds beat out their opponents who have scored over 1000 in their previous.

Anyway I'll be giving SaiMoe a miss this year, can't stand that fake voting bullcrap they go on, waiting on Korea's BestMoe, by the way how did Horo from Spice and Wolf do in the prelims? If any newcomer wins Saimoe I'll want it to be her, Fate chan is going to fall short again!

*spits out coffee* Don't tell me Clare or Teresa were ever on Saimoe? That, that is just wrong. They are so much the opposite of moe it's not even funny. They make Sheryl look moe if she ever stood within 10 feet of them.

Um, what? Are you serious? Do you realize how insanely popular Lelouch is in both Japan and the west? And I'm not saying that cause I'm a Lulu fan, I'm saying that because if you look at any poll anywhere Lulu is usually smashing the competition. The polls here on AS are the only polls I've ever seen where someone has beat Lulu or been close to him and even that is only by literally one or two votes. C.C. and Lulu are neck and neck in the AS polls and are leading all the other characters by a pretty large gap. In Japanese magazine polls Lelouch is always number 1. On the official CG website polls he is also always number 1.

Oh yeah, 2ch It stands for channel, right? I guess that's one of the downside in having an uber big online tournament like this. With too many people participating, you can't tell which ones are there to participate or ruin the competition. No matter how the votes got casted in, the vote raking characters get some spotlight together with the series they represent. More popularity boosters for the series staff.

Here's another Macross_F related scan from the Saimoe. Anyone knows what it says?

Oh, a Taiwanese version of Saimoe. Can't say I am surprised, being the largest consumer of Japanese pop culture and all. Actually the text is nothing major, the first block states a brief synopsis of MACROSS FRONTIER, while the following 3 blocks are simply anticipating opinions of the series by different individuals. Nothing major, really.

I realize she's more popular among mature fans whereas Ranka reals in the younger teens and pre-teens generation. Kawamori is a smart man and wants the reap the most profit out of his creation.

I can't say I don't like Lulu, although in all seriousness, if the polls weren't geared towards younger fans, Lulu wouldn't get this much votes.

Put him next to Reinhard from LoGH and poll it amongst older fans, the results would be vastly different. No less because Lulu is CG's supernatural version of Reinhard with similarities all the way from being a gifted strategist to having a serious sis-complex issues.

Fake votes are alawys a part of Saimoe. Doesn't matter how much you dislike them, BestMoe hardly replaces Saimoe. It just doesn't feels like a festival.

She did well. She is in 1st place of Group 14 with 732 votes. But there wasn't any heavyhitter in her group (Satoko from Higurashi and Wilhelmina from Shana).

BestMoe's big enough for me, and the fake votes bullshit and disdain for non japanese ips annoys the shit out of me.

Could be a good sign she got so many votes in such a weak group though! Horo ftw, where the fuck is the season 2 announcement DVD's are selling really well...

I'm a massive Feito-chan fan.. but I think her time has passed... I also think this years winner is going to be another Rika where someone slips through with all the big names dropping.

I guess you haven't heard about this. I won't be surprised if Fate-chan win 2008 and 09 Saimoe consecutively.

I'm little bit tired of reading Spice and Wolf novel (haven't finished 5th because of that). But I have to say the 3rd vol is my fav. of all S&W novels.

Btw, have you been on MW recently? It's a big surprise for me that Klan Klan's popularity drops that hard, I am little regretful to vote Sheryl instead of Klan-chan. (What heck is that I am using "btw" for only thing in this post can be considered on topic?)

Yeah but won't Saimoe be over by the time that comes out, sure it will give her an initial boost but can it last? And I expect big names to get targeted bad this year.

As for Klan's drop on MW, it's expected I guess, Girls pt 2 was done after episode 10 and she finally got an episode with focus on her in 9.
