As much as I like Suigintou, I might have to actually get pissed off if she beats Shana.

* = difficult choices.

(Very) generally, as far as my moe goes, "moe-points" are deducted emotionally for those girls who are independant, violent, strong, ill-tempered & mean, non-expressive, or snarky. This doesn't mean that I don't like them They're just not all that moe to me.

Rin v Nagi S. this time was interesting, as both have some of these qualities. Rin is one of my fave characters, but Nagi S. has so many scenes where she's so adorable that her moe outshines Rin's by a lot, and so I went with the little dynamo

Ami v Patchouli was simply a case of not going with a meaner, if prettier, girl versus a bookworm who has a lot of qualities I consider moe, even though they aren't on display given her small amount of screentime. I like Patchy; Ami just pissed me off for much of Toradora, not showing me any moe until after the halfway point (and then only in very brief bits).

Anyway, your "moe" will vary

That's what I like about Ami so much. I absolutely HATED her in the earlier episodes. I wanted someone to beat the living shit out of her. But by that halfway point I felt completely different about her. No, she's not super moe, but I eventually came to the point of really caring about her. I can't think of another character that I've had such a dramatic change of heart over. So that makes her kinda' special.

Yep, I've been trying to come up with another example but can't. Maybe Suigintou, but she was made to be the bad girl. Very dramatic tipping of the scale for Ami. And that "caring" is what causes me to give her the votes that I have. In the end I enjoyed her development (and mine LOL) very much

While Shiki is another who's moe didn't come out until somewhat later, I always liked her. Gin not until Ouverture and also in her scenes with Megu. But Ami... I can't think of many non-villain characters who I disliked SO MUCH She did redeem herself admirably later on (not that she would care for that evaluation LOL).

(EDIT: By the way, have you seen Spice and Wolf? After finishing it the other night (finally!) I watched the new season 2 OVA early this morning... she's such a great (and singularly moe) character! And quite unique, in a series that is equally so. Highly recommended, although not much action in it (as if that's a bad thing LOL)...)

Spice and Wolf was a series I went into after seeing a lot of praise for Horo and I ended up having expectations that were different from the impressions I got. It's a good series, I like the medieval merchant story line, but there were times where I felt it was dragging.

Horo is a great character, but not a very moe one, too me. She's attractive, alluring, enticing, occasionally charming, but on the whole too wise and mature for me to see her as moe. Not only that, but animal ears and tails have never done much for me, so I had a bias to overcome from the very start.

Mashiro, in Tayutama, is the first "ears~n~tail" girl I've ever felt any serious moe vibes from. But it's been a year, I think, since I saw Spice and Wolf. A repeat viewing may give me a different perspective... as I've had happen with other series.

Well, if you recall from last year's ISML, I'm also unaffected by girls with animal ears and/or tails, thus my very few votes for not only Horo in '08, but the Uta girls as well. This year I decided to go into it with a more open mind; after all, these girls are capable of being moe, as evidenced by their huge popularity in various moe tourneys. It took a lot to get past my bias

But I figured that Chii also has erm... "unique ears" and totally love her, so I gave the animal-girls a chance

But after watching SaW, and understanding in advance that it was rather leisurely-paced and dialogue-heavy, I actually enjoyed it very much despite my disassociation with both Trade concepts and numbers in general

While Horo is mature (she's a Wise Wolf, after all ), she's still supposedly in the body of a fifteen year old girl; I think I read that in one of her bios. Which does explain her more childish mannerisms LOL

Since I went in curious about and looking for her moe, I suppose I did see it in abundant evidence whereas before I might have just been turned off by her "freakish" appearance, and by the end (well-before actually) I accepted it as just being part of who she was. It's certainly not a Mei-type moe, or Misuzu-type moe, but it IS a Horo-type moe for sure Very different.

I haven't seen Tayutama yet, but perhaps I'll investigate a bit further

It's a lot of silliness, but the first episode got me hooked. I've already got Mashiro in mind for ISML 2010 nominations.

Just for a little nudge in that direction...
Spoiler for yeah, it's off topic... deal with it :P :

If Suigintou beats Shana, she has enough SDO to win Sapphire. The only contestant she has to watch out for is Kagami, but from Amethyst, the RM faction is strong enough to upset Kagami (see Tomoyo).
