Shana wins a decisive victory. On the other hand Mugi shows a surprising level of grass roots popularity while Yui needed a last minute rush just to overcome her bandmate but still remain well out of reach of Shana. Yurippe managed to surpass God by seven votes. Nymph also had a bit of a rally at the end to pass ToLoveRu Yui.

All those fakes really masked everything.

Anyway, on to group 16. Lots of good picks including 3 of my personal favorites, but no real contenders for the top spots of the tournament except maybe Hamster if she gets the right matchups. (Or maybe someone from a popular show I haven't watched, like Negima)

I pick Hamster to win this group. Beyond that I really have no idea.

H系 moe:
<<天空寺なじみ@アキカン! カン一発!?温泉パニック>> (Tenkuuji Najimi @ Akikan! OVA)
<<工藤愛子@バカとテストと召喚獣>> (Kudou Aiko @ Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu)
<<山田@B型H系>> (Yamada @ B Gata H Kei)
<<沙倉楓@けんぷファー>> (Sakura Kaede @ Kämpfer)

organized meganekko moe:
<<川島乃枝@大正野球娘。>> (Kawashima Noe @ Taishou Yakyuu Musume)
<<真鍋和@けいおん!!>> (Manabe Nodoka @ K-ON!!)

kawaii moe:
<<西沢歩@ハヤテのごとく!!>> (Nishizawa Ayumu @ Hayate no Gotoku!!)
<<姫路瑞希@バカとテストと召喚獣>> (Himeji Mizuki @ Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu)

heroine moe:
<<春野サクラ@NARUTO 疾風伝 火の意志を継ぐ者>> (Haruno Sakura @ Naruto Shippuuden: Hi no Ishi o Tsugumono)

creepy yet harmless kind of yandere (but not really) moe:
<<桐島琴音@にゃんこい!>> (Kirishima Kotone @ Nyan Koi!)

Hamster is in for sure, but I'll be waiting to see if Kotone@NyanKoi even makes the top twelve, and if Noe@TaishouYakyuu even makes the second prelims. I may slightly alter my vote later today depending on the vote counts.

Spoiler for Preliminaries Group 15 - Results:
7-3-0 (103-44-3). Shana won, Yuri beat Haruhi, Mugi is stronger than ever, Nino made it, everything is alright with the world

My final picks for this phase are:

<<山田@B型H系>> (Yamada @ B Gata H Kei)
<<姫神秋沙@とある科学の超電磁砲>> (Himegami Aisa @ To Aru Kagaku no Railgun)
<<西沢歩@ハヤテのごとく!!>> (Nishizawa Ayumu @ Hayate no Gotoku!!)
<<乃木坂美夏@乃木坂春香の秘密 ぴゅあれっつぁ♪>> (Nogizaka Mika @ Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza)

<<真鍋和@けいおん!!>> (Manabe Nodoka @ K-ON!!)
<<関羽(愛紗)@真・恋姫†無双 シリーズ>> (Kan'u Unchou (Aisha) @ Shin Koihime†Musou series)
<<桐島琴音@にゃんこい!>> (Kirishima Kotone @ Nyan Koi!)
<<轟八千代@WORKING!!>> (Todoroki Yachiyo @ Working!!)

My priorities this time are Yamada and Hamster, this group isn't as epic as others but I think is a good group to end the preliminaries...

A really nice result from my point of view. Only got one character completely eliminated and most actually made it through to the next round. Glad Shana had such a strong showing and took the group. Actually surprised by how well Cecily did with Utau and Lisa just making it in behind her. Too bad Winry couldn't make the top 12, but at least she wasn't far off.

So my picks for this phase (again too bad I missed so many earlier rounds:

<<リトゥーシャ@キディ・ガーランド>> (Letuchie @ Kiddy GiRL-AND)
<<乃木坂美夏@乃木坂春香の秘密 ぴゅあれっつぁ♪>> (Nogizaka Mika @ Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza)
<<九崎凛子@おまもりひまり>> (Kuzaki Rinko @ Omamori Himari)
<<桂木華@聖痕のクェイサー>> (Katsuragi Hana @ Seikon no Qwaser)
<<沙倉楓@けんぷファー>> (Sakura Kaede @ Kämpfer)
<<織部まふゆ@聖痕のクェイサー>> (Oribe Mafuyu @ Seikon no Qwaser)
<<春野サクラ@NARUTO 疾風伝 火の意志を継ぐ者>> (Haruno Sakura @ Naruto Shippuuden: Hi no Ishi o Tsugumono)
<<山田@B型H系>> (Yamada @ B Gata H Kei)
<<神楽坂明日菜@魔法先生ネギま! もうひとつの世界>> (Kagurazaka Asuna @ Mahou Sensei Negima! Mou Hitotsu no Sekai)


Again glad I read through other's votes. How I missed Asuna I have no idea. A couple interesting characters though not as amazing as the last group. Still let's see how Yamada does in her quest to get many s...votes .

I disapprove of this sort of voting tactic. I wonder who they will blame it on and blanket ban this time around. It wasn't the Aux thread...There were only about 300 votes in there late last night.

Begs the question as to why the tactic was used and for who's benefit. Is it an obsessive fan spamming his favorate to see if he can get past the system, or is it someone attempting to hide results under a wash of votes for those that can see the tracker. The entire top gets more than 200 fakes, Shana gets almost 500 and Yui gets over 900 fakes? What was the point of that anyway? It seems way to early for such tactics.

It masked Mugi's run for second nicely.

I wonder if this was the point? Getting another faction banned from voting would increase your faction's odds of controlling the outcome.

Then it must have been Mugi's fans... yeah not likely. It is interesting that Mugi led Yui until the last minute rally, suggesting that Yui's fans are more organized, but that among more casual voters perhaps Mugi is more popular.

Anyway, massive fake voting at this point is really pointless indeed. You can't snipe anybody in the prelims. But, then again, the results of the prelims can have some minor effects on the impressions of strength that people have of characters in the main tourney, which has an effect on how people vote later on. It's all quite vague and very loosely linked, but things done now can have an effect down the road... and it doesn't surprise me that there would be Japanese otaku obsessive enough to do anything and everything they can to get their moe to win. Still, it is hard to tell at this point even if it is better to look stronger in order to garner fair-weather votes, or weaker in order to avoid assassination. It would probably depend on the character. Or, maybe people are fake voting just so that their character does well in the preliminary, as a matter of pride. Or maybe fake voting in the prelims could be used as research, since the effect of fake votes can be difficult to gauge.

I'd say Shana has made Rena's "take home" list, but she was already on the list. Everyone is on Rena's list.

Well, I think the mods are smart enough to realise that banning all of the voting for a particular faction would be dumb... they can see ip addresses and ranges, etc... Prolly just ban the proxy that they were using.... saa

Oh, and 'sup Suzuran ^_^ (Ichigo69 here)

8-1-1 (85-30-13 total): So if things are this intense in prelims 1, I'm afraid (read: excited) to think what shit will be hitting the fan come the main tournament. Also... Ame at 40th wut. ;_;


Spoiler for Today's votes:

Calm after the storm.

Shana always does well in prelims, and falters in the main contest. Don't she's shes ever not been first in prelims.
