No, it's just a bad dice roll. There are only a few configurations that everyone would accept as being entirely fair (seeded matches where aces are kept well apart so the big fights come later). Statistically, rolling the dice to determine placement means there will almost always be some wanton unfairness. It just so happens that this unfairness spawned as "so many Saki aces in one block". As well as cases like "Tohsaka Rin spawned next to DOOM on round 1" and "Nozomi of Mayoi Neko spawned next to OHSHIT on round 1".

Wontaek has argued for a seeded placement in Saimoe tournaments in the past. At least in KSaimoe, they didn't want to hear of it - they liked it being 100% random with the dice rolled at every round. I assume it's a similar story for Saimoe itself.

8/18 in one block is amusing though, when the expected number should be around 2-3 per block.

Also aw man, Hajime rush was just disheartening. Sohara was just about to catch up.

Matches were at least a little bit closer. Aruruu seems to always do decently. Mion and Ange both did horrendous.

Picks: Yaya, Nanako
Predictions: Nodoka, Nanako

Yaya and Akari are pretty similar, so I'll stick with the one that I know more about. Same thing in D09 with Yamamoto-sensei.

Wow, and I thought Satoko had a terrible performance. Ange just gets curb stomped (although I would have to say I never liked her character anyway). Today going with sex crazed girl, and hot for teacher My prediction is Nodocchi in a landslide, and Deep Blood because of show mojo

Vote & Predict: Nodochi & Nanako

Unless there's some form of major anti-vote campaign, I don't see either one of these two losing.

Picks: 1-1 (15-19) - Yumiko ;A;
Predictions: 2-0 (30-4)

Well, that certainly was an exciting finish to both matches. But in the end, the consensus favorites prevailed.

As for today, Nodoka and Nanako are the obvious predictions based on the numbers alone. Hope Hanamaru finally gets on the scoreboard. Supporting her, and Yamada.

Hajime borrowed a bit of Koromo's Haitei there. Today rooting for Yamada but the breasts with a girl attached should easily win.

0-2 (13-21 total in picks): Both picks getting 4th... life is harsh. On the other hand though, those final rushes were pretty entertaining.

Today's votes:
Nobody in C9 that I'm familiar with and is not named Nodoka, so skipping that one.
<<山本菜々子@はなまる幼稚園>> (Yamamoto Nanako @ Hanamaru Kindergarten)
Yamamoto-sensei~

I like Yamada and all, but any scenario that has Nodoka losing is fine by me.

Gooooo Akari.

Was gonna vote for Yamada, but I guess I'll wait and see just in case there are real votes in this shenanigan and this Akari girl can actually win... then I'll vote for her just to beat Nodoka.

For D block, I don't really care much. Seen Index/Railgun but Aisa is one of those no-outward-expression-of-emotion girls, so I'll go with the cute kindergarten teacher of whose show I have only seen the first episode.

Akari is up to 90 votes. Obvious fakery, or there is major collusion to get rid of Nodoka (kinda scary if thats the case. If there is a group out there strong enough to take out Nodoka with a minor character, they can take out a lot of favorites). @Yaya having only 1 vote. Is 18 characters from Saki the most from one series ever in saimoe?

Well Yaya was pretty much comedic relief in Shugo Chara so unsurprisingly she gets 4th place.

It was close but Hajime manages to keep first place. Better luck next time sohara. Aruruu manages to hang on to first place. Poor Ange gets completely stomped.

Votes:
Haramura Nodoka
Himegami Aisa

Prediction:
Haramura Nodoka
Yamamoto Nanako

I don't think Nodoka is as strong as last year but she shouldn't have any problems with her match today. Second group is a bit weak overall. I think Nanako can pull off a win.

Poor Yaya. What's the lowest vote total for a character in a first round match?

Good job Sohara, you were close enough, and awesome performance Aruruu :3

For today:

C 1-9: <<山田@B型H系>> (Yamada @ B Gata H Kei)

D 1-9: <<山本菜々子@はなまる幼稚園>> (Yamamoto Nanako @ Hanamaru Kindergarten)

Go naive wannabe-slut, try your best to defeat the twin blobfish! (if there is still any hope for that :T).

Let's see, anything else other than going against the twin blobfish.... oh, go Nanako!
