KyoAni is among my favorite but definitely not among the top. However, it turns out that out of my favorite characters not yet in ISML 2009, KyoAni characters have the best chance at being over 0.500, so...

10: Makoto Sawatari
Spoiler:

8: Vita
Spoiler:

6: Misuzu Kamio
Spoiler:

5: Mikoto Misaka
Spoiler:

4: Tsugumi Aoba
Spoiler:

3: Ranka Lee
Spoiler:

2: Minori Kushieda
Spoiler:

1: Haruka Nogizaka
Spoiler:


But then again, I took off Shiori because she already had a chance in 2008. Makoto and Misuzu, however, needs to get in.

Eh, I think I'll just wait for a few days and see how the nominations map out before choosing who to vote for.

Alright. This is it. Nominations have begun. Therefore, it's time I reveal mine, and I can assure you, a LOT of these are indeed shocking.

Disclaimer: I did not nominate particular candidates for 1 of 3 reasons:
1. I don't know her
2. I don't like her
3. I like her but I think everyone else will handle the nominating for her.

10 - Rei Hino (Sailor Mars) - Sailor Moon
If there is anything that can make a good story here in ISML, it's that someone that predates Sakura Kinomoto does well in this tournament, and what better than a candidate representing Sailor Moon? Unfortunately, Rei is probably not the right candidate, but I am not much of a Usagi Tsukino fan as much as I am of Rei, and I have not been exposed to Hotaru Tomoe enough to nominate her. Besides, everyone knows that I am slightly biased towards Shana, and looking back, I've kind of taking a liking to Rei as opposed to the few years ago when I watched Sailor Moon in its early years. This is probably the one candidate I'll be rooting for to pull an upset, and hopefully some Sailor Moon fans can pick up on this.

8 - Minako Aino (Sailor Venus) - Sailor Moon
I did say I was not an Usagi Tsukino fan, so yeah, I wouldn't dare nominate Sailor Moon. But I'm a slight fan of Minako as well, and she does have a much better chance than Rei to make it to ISML, even though chances are still nil. I'd love to see Rei, but Minako isn't a bad consolation prize.

6 - Setsuna Sakurazaki - Negima?!
Okay, I have to admit, if she even comes back to defend the Topaz necklace, we're about to see another losing record within her performance. In fact, under current ISML rules, the Topaz necklace would have gone to Kyou Fujibayashi instead. However, she does have redeeming qualities of her own, and I think that even though her past resumé is far from impressive, she does have a necklace win, and she deserves to come back and defend her necklace from the get go, even if she'll have a worse record then last year's feat of 23-40. Unfortunately, due to my desperate need of either Rei or Minako to make it, Setsuna has been pushed down here for the moment.

5 - Shinku - Rozen Maiden.
If performance in Korea Super Best Moe was any indication, it is that the Rozen Maiden faction is beginning to make a come back, and we should therefore expect Suigintou and Suiseiseki to have strong records for the 2009 season. What better path for redemption is there than the one laid in front of Shinku? With Korea Super Best Moe the only way for her to return to ISML, she has had two clear cut chances to prove that she would belong, all against last year's top 16 opponents save Nagi Sanzen'in. With that in mind, I think she is ready to better her record of 18-45, and she has a definite chance to actually secure a spot in 2010. If she does make it past preliminaries, watch out.

4 - Misuzu Kamio - AIR.
Oh, my goodness. What is there to not love about Misuzu? The female protagonist of Kyoto Animation's first series, her charming and clumsy personality, the "gao"... oh, yeah, and she was oh, so, close to making it last year when only 17 spots were available. With a bigger nomination field this year, I am very excited to see how this newcomer to the round-robin format can handle having 63 opponents throughout the next six months, the majority of which very accomplished candidates who return as virtual favorites. Very good chance of making it this year, and I hope that a winning record is in her future.

3 - Yuuhi Katagiri - Akane-Iro no Somaru Saka
Yuuhi has it all. She has the deredere and a little bit of tsun personality that can absolutely dominate the majority of the field, and she may be able to run the table in one of the necklace periods. The fact of the matter is, she is so moe that I actually considered not nominating her because she may be a possible lock in. The only problem is that she is such a stellar character in a very disappointing anime series, and that in turn could be the deciding factor on whether she may get in or not. I am certain that she can make the nomination and preliminary phase, but how certain I am, I am not quite so sure, so a little insurance policy would not hurt.

2 - Taiga Aisaka - Toradora!
To be honest, I am not the type of person that would nominate Taiga. Sure, she's a combination of Shana and Louise Valliere, and Louise is just not my type. But I myself find Taiga a candidate filled with much potential and virtually winning-record bound. In fact, I almost see her as much more than a potential top 16 candidate. Since that is the case, I am highly certain that a weighted-nomination may not be necessary from me, so I am leaving her at the 2 spot, as I am certain she will definitely make it.

1 - Mei Sunohara - Clannad
Well, Clannad already has the primary five protagonists representing the already famed series, but at the time of last year's nominations, one side character hasn't had the chance to prove herself until afterwards. With the latest Clannad episodes at hand, Mei has truly proven herself to be totally and entirely moe, even getting the delinquent bum Tomoya Okazaki to suffer a moe explosion. That takes a lot to get a delinquent to fall for a loli like that, and Mei did it without breaking a sweat. Will she survive here, I am not sure, as she would definitely pale in comparison to Tomoyo, Kyou, and Kotomi, but if she plays her cards right, she may be able to have a successful 2009 year.

Interesting.

My two favorites from Sailor Moon are Michiru Kaioh and Ami Mizuno..
Heh, even though I posted that I finalized my nominations, I guess I should nominate these two for the sake of.. just nominating is meaningful, I suppose.

Bye Misuzu and Amu.

Rearranging:
Yin - Hayate - Alicia - Shiho - Michiru - Ami - Chiaki - Shinku

This almost made me decide to change one of my votes to Creamy Mami (1983-1984), but I decided to stick with my previously decided nominations. Orin will have to keep the older than Sakura dream alive (1994-1995).
10 Sumomo Akihime - Nanatsuiro Drops
8 Yako Katsuragi - Neuro
6 Elis - Night Wizard
5 Kanaru - Persona
4 Himeka - Kamichama Karin
3 Gretel - Fairy Musketeers
2 Fuyuumi - Corda
1 Orin - Akazukin Cha Cha.
And from my list I doubt it'll come true.

Hmmm... still thinking about it, but so far (highest to lowest)...

Misuzu Kamio (Air)
Ultra moe. She needs to be there and I'm happy to see so much support for her around here.

Yuuhi Katagiri (Akane-iro)
Pretty much had my say on her. Surprisingly captivating and full of win.

Mizuki Hayama (ef)
A wonderful example of cheerful, vibrant, youthful femininity.

.
.

Mei Sunohara (Clannad AS)
"Onii-chan!"

Mika Nogizaka (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu)
Yes, that's right, Mika, not Haruka. I'm probably next to alone in the world on this one, but I see her as a real traditional loli.

Sakura Shinguji (Sakura Wars)
Honorable mention because she more than deserves it.

And I'll probably take the whole week to finalize my choices.

Okay... some stuff went down in the ISML Staff Room earlier today, which led to a huge argument that put two staff members on tilt. But it looks like there is a plan in action to increase the number of participants in the preliminary round, so keep your eyes on that.

Realizing that nominations has started already, I immediately began assembling a list of possible nominee characters from scanning my anime list. In the end, 28 girls were accumulated, and I began eliminating starting from girls that are highly improbable to pass nominations (I'd like to be realistic), and subsequently, those that are possible but not quite plausible. Next off, I've set aside girls whom I don't have a strong feeling for during a recall. Finally, with 12 girls left, I had to painfully remove 4 in order to fit into the slots. That was the true deal; the real meatballs in the batter, so to speak. Spending 5 minutes worth of real-time, 1 year worth of hair, and 2 years of braincells, I'd finally churn out my final nominations list:

(By the way, the moral of this story is to always have a wig around to mask any hair loss caused by the stress of moe business)




Plenty of Toradora nominations I see


EDIT: Happy new year!

I would have nominated Taiga and Minorin from Toradora and Nagi from Kannagi, but I'm assuming they'll probably get in anyways...I hope

And after reading about the Makoto fanclub earlier in the thread..I guess mass message worked in the end since I decided to put Makoto in there for them.
