As I feared, Yozora and Sen's despair time.

RegalStar 2012-01-07 23:17

I don't see them doing all that badly...

HasuMasu 2012-01-07 23:21

^ You're the one who counted it, based on your count it's not going too well. :heh:

RegalStar 2012-01-07 23:37

Well, they're not leading, but assuming that my count has SOME basis in representing reality (it's not a surefire thing unfortunately), they're not going to have any problems getting in prelims, and nomination results are not much tied with prelim results (look at Ika-musume and Laura last year)

Spoiler for Nominations by Character:

A total of 315 characters (297 last year) received at least 1 nomination. 105 of those characters (99 last year) got 3 or more nominations. Lets see how this tally matches up to the official results this year.
Spoiler for Nomination by Series:

In total characters from 153 different series were nominated. Last year I recorded nominations from 150 series.

So, in 2008 top 3 in nominations were Fujibayashi Kyou, Ichinose Kotomi, and Horo.

In 2009, it was Hakurei Reimu, Aisaka Taiga, and Kirisame Marisa.

In 2010, they were Akiyama Mio, Senjougahara Hitagi, and Shiina Mafuyu

In 2011, it was Kuroneko, Kosaka Kirino, and Eucliwood.

This year, it is likely that Akemi Homura and Kashiwazaki Sena will be among top 3. ( We are still counting ). So, will Akemi Homura perform more like Kirisame Marisa in 2009 or Akiyama Mio in 2010 ?

RegalStar 2012-01-08 00:14

I would say something in between. I VERY highly doubt that she will be the Mio (2010ver) of 2012, but I don't think she'll do as bad as the Touhou characters of 2009. Maybe on the level of Holo in 2011.

KholdStare 2012-01-08 00:41

I believe 2010/2011 is a better representation, so the worst Homura could do is Kirino/Mafuyu level, which isn't too bad. So Homura will make Top 16, the question is how far after that.

Not Holo of 2009 when she almost beat Shana for epic 1 vs 16 match ?

RegalStar 2012-01-08 01:36

I'm still of the opinion that Homura had a field advantage in her exhibition against Kuroneko, and losing that match honestly doesn't speak well of her. She should have enough support behind her to get in the regular seasons (although if she doesn't get in on phase II, she might need to have some luck with phase III not landing on a group with a black horse), but without seeing concrete data on her performing better, I wouldn't bet anything on her getting in the nova 16s, or even being a top 16 hopeful near the end (like Victorique or Saber in 2011).

Ithekro 2012-01-08 05:44

If she doesn't pull off straight wins through the openning (round robin I mean) then she might be the one used to snip the "zero" loss girls, because she can probably get backing when needed to oppose someone.

Seeing Erio with 52 votes yet Ryuuko with only 6 is disheartening.

That was a hard loss. I had almost forgotten about that.

This year, I'd welcome her just getting in it since she has not had any new TV time.

KholdStare 2012-01-09 04:52

Are you guys ready for prelims? Massugu, go!

Last Sinner 2012-01-09 04:59

Does that means results will be posted soon?

Btw, gratitude to those doing the painstaking vote counting.

RegalStar 2012-01-10 19:34

Three days have passed

Ithekro 2012-01-10 20:01

It is still two or three hours until the usual results time for ISML.

RegalStar 2012-01-10 22:43

Was the last year's result published at the customary 3AM GMT as well?

Sackett 2012-01-10 23:42

The vote counters got interrupted this year when they were called in to count the New Hamphire primary vote. Once they finish that they'll get back to ISML.

Crisu 2012-01-11 03:10

Nearly done. Just double and triple checking. It matters the most right at the cutoff point, of course. :) Sorry for the wait but it may be one more day. Thanks for your patience!

Taste or trolling has nothing to do with interest in ISML though. ;) Many people tend to think that everyone else has terrible taste, except theirs.

But yea, traps... :p

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 21:09.
