Predictions: 4-0 (85-11)
Picks: 1-3 (47-44-5)

Same record prediction-and-pick-wise as the previous day, and I've to say it was a pretty good round for me, except for the untimely exit of Miyako, who's number four in my moe list. Still, Hina, Yuno, Maria and the Koromo are still there, with three of them in good shape to advance to the Round of 32 under the normal course of things.

One day break, here's my initial take on the notable matches for Round 2:

Spoiler for Tsukasa vs. Holo vs. Ikeda Kana:


Spoiler for Minami Kana vs. Isumi vs. Perinne:


Spoiler for Kotomi vs. Momoko (Stealth Momo) vs. Megumi (Coolface):

Spoiler for Koromo vs. Saku vs. Erica:

Spoiler for Yui vs. Rika vs. Shimako:


Spoiler for Tomoyo vs. Ayumu (Hamu) vs. Lucchini:


Spoiler for Taiga vs. Ami vs. Mikuru:

Spoiler for Mihoko vs. Mikoto vs. Touma:


Other matches to follow as the tournament progresses along, but for now, this is my second round preview. ...

... and here's my take on the first round round-up... prelim1 and prelim2 charts updated, black and gray

I'd stick behind the Minami sisters and Touma.

I would too, but a Hisa vs Hinagiku match late in the tournament would also be great.

I'd say Jun is not such a minor character, at least not as much as Kaori. Anyway, it was a blow for the Saki fanbase.

Regarding the results, I got 2-2, good for Yomi and Zange, Arashi did a good job and Chika dominated all H12 so poor Akeno ;_;

With this I close the first round with a score of 52-44, a good balance I'd say, being my greatest regret Mio's defeat, but now it's time to forget about that, a lot of very exciting battles are coming so maybe I'll change my signature (I think Holo is now my top priority ).

Ah, Zange-chan~

Don't really get what Sei and Rai have against her.

So, let us get rest for a day. The true battles of Saimoe will start full force tomorrow. Maybe I will get finally a disputed 3-way match. It will be Ikedaaaaaaaaaaa and 20001 for me.

Spoiler for Chartage:

It seems all but inevitable to the rematch between the Godslayer and Haruhi-chan will happen in the Round 3.

B2-1 looks like it promises to be bloody, and it will be glorious!

Check out Group 17. That one almost got annihilated in the first round.

My Round 2 Guesses

A2-1 - Yutaka has the advantage of having Tsukasa's match on the same day and that match being very competitive. But it probably won't quite be enough of a boost. Chiaki in a squeaker.
A2-2 - Minna. Cakewalk. Next.
A2-3 - This is really Mei v Tacos. Mei hails from a waning faction, but Tacos hails from one that has all the momentum. Tacos by over 100.
A2-4 - This is pretty much a "who cares?" match as whoever wins is likely to lose to the A2-3 winner. None of the characters are particularly strong at the moment. I'll go with Utau in a close one.
B2-1 - A battle royal for sure. But last year's runner-up ain't done yet. Tsukasa by under 100.
B2-2 - Fuko. Cakewalk. Next.
B2-3 - Ah, will it be revenge for Haruka or revenge for Mio? I still think K-On's popularity is overestimated here, therefore Kana in a squeaker.
B2-4 - Miki will be left in the dust here. And I doubt Chihiro will have a repeat performance here. Nagi by over 100.

As mentioned, I'd stick with Kana Minami. If she was used by a faction to get Mio out, I think it would be fitting to use Kana against them as well by maintaining a high Minami vote count. Seems only fair. That and she's pretty much the driving force of Minami-ke.

Chiaki disagrees.
But that is essentially the exact same attitude I hold for Mikuru. Since Toradora fandom used her, why not use her against them.

@Itheko
Alright, but we still need Chiaki's tsukkomi to Kana's boke though

Driving force as in, nothing particularly happens in the show unless it is somehow caused by Kana Minami. Chiaki is the more moe for sure, but without Kana, you have a lot less things going on...and no Mako-chan...who would probably get more votes than any Saki or K-On character in Saimoe if allowed entry.

Next round is despair. Choosing between Yutaka/Last Order and Horo/Tsukasa is really tough, and I'm very worried about Saki's momentum. I'm compromising with Yutaka and Horo at the moment, but considering Horo's last vote total, I might end up switching to Tsukasa when the match comes around. It was a toss-up between Horo and Tsukasa anyway, really.

Forgot to vote yesterday, and I just got totally saved by the break today.... So I guess tomorrow is where the tournament really picks up along with the legendary despair/nerdrage/cardboard eating so famous in the Saimoe world?
Voting record: 2-2, 1-3 (50-46)
(1-3 are hypothetical votes for last round.)

Just did a little bit more research, and I'm going to change my prediction for B2-1. Kana seems to be very, very popular in Japan, and Tsukasa's high vote total can be due to Fuuko and Mio vs Kana's matches on the same day. With the other LS characters doing badly, I'm going to say that Kana will win it over Tsukasa.


Also Frustra, you forgot to gray out Setsuna for you chart.

Yesterday's results mirror how the first round went for me. Most of them were pretty easy to predict, with a few notable upsets. Second round will be totally different with tough 3-way eliminations. I like all 6 chars in the first day T______T

I suspect that the Hayate faction gave Kana a lot of support in round 1 to get Mio out of the way. I see a huge drop off in votes in this round for Kana
