International Saimoe League 2010 (part 3)

International Saimoe League 2010 (part 3)
28 Feb 2010 17:47:55



Hello everyone! Once again for those of you following this year's competition to crown the most moe girl in anime, we have a new post to kick off Phase III Preliminary voting! (Continuing from Part 2 and Glory's Original Post) But first off, congratulations to these 14 new girls who made it out of Phase II voting and into the Contestant line-up:

-Ichinose Kotomi
-Senjougahara Hitagi
-Maria
-Hiiragi Tsukasa
-Furukawa Nagisa
-Kushieda Minori
-Ibuki Fuuko
-Takamachi Nanoha
-C.C.
-Saginomiya Isumi
-Furude Hanyuu
-Akaba Chizuru
-Minami Chiaki
-Illyasviel von Einzbern


Yay for Senjougahara finally making it into the line-up! But sadly Louise lost to Illya by 173 votes. Hopefully she can make it out of Phase III.

So, about Phase III, it's a little different from Phases I & II. I'm actually not entirely sure how it works myself, but here is what the FAQ/Calender Page says:

"Phase III is a final set of group-based matches lasting 2 rounds scheduled over 3 days. Candidates with the lowest vote totals will be eliminated until the final 6 winners are decided."

In today's voting there are 7 groups of 7 (half of the remaining Candidates), allowing you to vote for up to 2 characters in each group. How many characters will be eliminated from each group after the voting is finished? Who knows. With only 6 Contestant spots left, this is the last chance for these 98 remaining Candidates to get into the real fight! Good luck to your favorites!

Oh, and today we also have a Seeding vote for the first half of the new Contestants from Phase II. Go Senjougahara!


Taiga is a little angry that her good friend Louise isn't a Contestant yet....


After Phase III, there will be a two week break until the "real" tournament starts. On a personal note, by that time I will be moved into my new home back in New Mexico. ^_^

Okay, Phase III Day 1 results are in and Day 2 voting is open. Looks like three people from each group are staying alive while the other four are out of the competition for good.

Group 1: Ryou, Sakura, and Soueiseki stay alive for Day 3 voting. A notable loser for me is Shinobu from Bakemonogatari. Poor girl. She had the highest number of votes for the losers in her Group.

Group 2: Alice, Kuroko, and Hayate (from the Nanoha series) stay alive. Yomi from Ga-rei Zero is gone for good. Sorry for not voting for you!

Group 3: Suigintou, Nayuki, and Amu move on.

Group 4: Konjiki no Yami, Enma Ai, and Evangeline A.K. McDowell make it to Day 3. Three girls I don't really feel comfortable with shortening their names. =P

Group 5: Ikaros, Koromo, and Haruka move on and Niche suffers one final crushing defeat with the second lowest vote count of the day. Well, I guess I'm glad she was at least nominated. ^_^"

Group 6: Ui, Mikan, and Kobato make the cut. And Ranka Lee is the one with the flat bottom lowest vote count of the day. Sorry Glory!

Group 7: Nymph, Makoto, and Izumi move on. Rei Ayanami has been eliminated for good. Awww. And so has little Lisa. Have fun with Niche!

Seeding 3: Well, I guess we can all be happy that Senjougahara and C.C. got first and second place votes respectively here. ^_^

And here are my votes for Day 2:

ARENA 01: Nishizawa Ayumu [Sangō Shizuku] Amamiya Yūko [Sōryū Asuka Langley] Takei Hisa Yoko Littner Mishima Akane
ARENA 02: Aizawa Sakuya [Ryūgū Rena] Kotegawa Yui Kamio Misuzu Kusakabe Misuzu [Kirishima Kotone] Chiba Kirino
ARENA 03: [Index L. Prohibitorum] Chii Uiharu Kazari Kirishima Akari Yin Erurū [Hachikuji Mayoi]
ARENA 04: Suiseiseki [Sonozaki Mion] Ryōgi Shiki [Bernkastel] Daidōji Tomoyo Suō Pavlichenko Ikeda Kana
ARENA 05: Katagiri Yūhi [Kotobuki Tsumugi] Kurata Sayuri Shindō Chihiro Beatrice [Ushiromiya Maria] Mizunashi Akari
ARENA 06: Shinku Kawasumi Mai Tsukimiya Ayu [Tsuruya] [Kuronuma Sawako] Sakurazaki Setsuna Kataoka Yūki
ARENA 07: [Louise Vallière] Sonozaki Shion Tainaka Ritsu Miyamura Miyako Shirayuki Mizore [Hanekawa Tsubasa] Sheryl Nome
ARENA 08: Hiiragi Tsukasa Kushieda Minori [Ibuki Fūko] Saginomiya Isumi Furude Hanyū [Minami Chiaki] Illyasviel von Einzbern

Go Mion, Louise, and Index!! Sorry Sawako, I love you but you're screwed. Well, glad you were at least nominated. ^_^"

Day 2 results are out and Day 3 voting for Phase III, the final day of the Preliminaries, is now open. First, here are the results:

Group 8: Ayumu, Shizuku, and Yuuko go on to Day 3 while Asuka and Yoko are eliminated. Even with the new Eva movies, the girls couldn't make to into the tournament. Sad times for Gainax and mecha fans.

Group 9: Sakuya, Rena, and Kotegawa. Got more Hayate girls potentially making into the Contestant line-up....

Group 10: Index, Chii, and Uiharu. Such cute girls. Yay Index! Poor Mayoi.

Group 11: Suiseiseki, Mion, and Shiki. Happy to see Mion still alive, but considering how much higher other vote counts are, I don't really expect her to win a spot in Day 3.

Group 12: Katagiri, Mugi, and Sayuri. Guess we won't have any Umineko representation in the Tournament. Well, "moe" isn't exactly the first thing you think of with that series anyway.

Group 13: Shinku, Mai, and Tsuruya-san. Ahhh, here's my Sawako saying goodbye. Well, at least with 657 votes she wasn't very close to dead last like Niche was.

Group 14: Louise, Shion, and Ritsu make the cut. Louise had the highest number of votes for the day so hopefully she'll be able to make the final cut as a Contestant. Tsubasa is eliminated making Senjougahara and Nadeko the only representatives for Bakemonogatari. And Sheryl from Macross Frontier has the lowest number of votes for the Day with only 327. This actually gives her the lowest vote count in all of Phase III Round 1 as the lowest number of votes in Day 1 was 339 for Ranka Lee. Poor Macross.

Seeding 4: Illya and Fuuko take first and second highest votes respectively, though I don't really feel too strongly of anyone in this group.

In this final day of Phase III and final day of the Preliminaries as a whole, we have the surviving girls from Round 1 divided into 6 new Groups (plus two final Seeding groups). Voters are only aloud one vote per group. Looks like the girl with the highest number of votes in each group will earn one of the final 6 Contestant spots. Good luck to all, but especially good luck to Louise. Here are my votes:

ARENA 01: Amae Koromo Ikaros Katagiri Yūhi Kotegawa Yui Nishizawa Ayumu [Shirai Kuroko] Sōseiseki
ARENA 02: Hanato Kobato Hinamori Amu Hirasawa Ui Index L. Prohibitorum Sawatari Makoto [Sonozaki Mion] Suigintou
ARENA 03: Enma Ai [Kinomoto Sakura] Kurata Sayuri Nymph Suiseiseki Uiharu Kazari Yūki Mikan
ARENA 04: [Alice] Amamiya Yūko Konjiki no Yami Ryūgū Rena Sangō Shizuku Segawa Izumi Tainaka Ritsu
ARENA 05: Chii Evangeline A.K. McDowell Fujibayashi Ryō Kawasumi Mai [Nogizaka Haruka] Shinku Yagami Hayate
ARENA 06: Aizawa Sakuya Kotobuki Tsumugi [Louise Vallière] Minase Nayuki Ryōgi Shiki Sonozaki Shion Tsuruya
ARENA 07: Fate Testarossa Holo Nakano Azusa Sanzen'in Nagi Sengoku Nadeko [Senjōgahara Hitagi] Tōsaka Rin
ARENA 08: Akaba Chizuru Asahina Mikuru [Furude Rika] Illyasviel von Einzbern Saten Ruiko Sunohara Mei Takamachi Nanoha

Hmmm, I honestly thought Macross girls are more popular, since they have lot's of figurines, art-books, etc. I'm especially sorry for Sheryl. I've just started to watch the series, but I already feel she's the one who gonna suffer here. I don't use spoiler tag, cause it's merely my guess. And Ranka isn't my kind of babe, I voted for her only in order to pay respect for the series.

Btw, do you like Macross, Aaron?

Hmmm, not particularly. I'm not really a big fan of serous mecha/military anime in general. There usually has to be something else there for me to enjoy the show like the psychological aspects of Evangelion or the extreme over-the-top epic craziness of Gurren Lagann. The only Macross anime I've finished has been Macross Plus and that's mostly because Yoko Kanno did the music and it was a short 4 episode OVA. I liked it well enough, though.

I've only watched the first episode of Macross Frontier so far. I had sampled it a while back because I was thinking of showing it at the anime club screenings I used to run at the Air Force Base where I was stationed. I was planning on showing the series, but I ended up ending the anime club a little early because of lack of interest. A few too many nights that I ended up watching anime by myself at the community center. -_-

I just haven't gotten around to getting back to watching the series, though. I should start watching it again soon. I really need to work through all of my On Hold series. I currently have 214 in that category on MAL. >_<

I see. But I'm pretty sure that Macross Frontier is that type of mecha which has a strong physiological plot behind robots. Yeah, it's all about relations between three main heroes and music! In my view, OSTs are nothing but fantastic. So I can proudly recommend it to you. *said the girl who watched only 4 epizodes* Yeah, you can start watching it too and we'll exchange our impressions. I'm curious to know which girl - Sheryl or Ranka - would you like best? Ahhh... but you probably will finish it in 2 days, so I have no chance. Awww... :)~

Well I currently don't have the series on my computer. It's burnt to DVD and all of my anime fansub archive discs are already packed up in a box. I won't be watching it until around the 18th or so when I'm at my new home. Maybe I can even have it be the first series me and my new house mate watches together? She liked Code Geass so it should be in her range of tastes. ^_^

So yeah, you've got a two week head start!

The results from the final Preliminary Round are in!

Group 1 Winner: Ikaros! She beat Kuroko which makes me a little sad. But she also beat Ayumu from Hayate no Gotoku which makes me happy! There are actually no new Contestants coming from Hayate. Yay! ^_^

Group 2 Winner: Hirasawa Ui! Awww, Index ended in 3rd place, and Mion right after her. Oh well, less girls I have to worry about supporting the the actual tournament. =P

Group 3 Winner: Nymph! Eh, not too many strong feeling here....

Group 4 Winner: Konji no Yami! Ahhh, the only new Contestant who I know nothing about. I guess I should get around to watching the series....

Group 5 Winner: Fujibayashi Ryou! Again, not really feeling to strongly here....

Group 6 Winner: LOUISE!! Yay!!! Finally!! Taiga doesn't have to break her wooden sword over anyone's head anymore. ^_^

Good luck to all of the new Contestants! Though honestly, if it took you this long to be voted into the line-up, your chances of actually winning this thing don't look too good. Sorry!

As I said before, the actual tournament doesn't start until March 21st so we have a break till then. You are all speared of my constant commentary for a few weeks. ^_^"

Yay-yay-yay, Louise! Ah, Zero-Louise finally managed to do it. My beloved, magician :)
Ui is also a good one, I feel sympathy for.

Ok, lets wait for a real battle to begin. Bah, with so many strong candidates - it seems impossible to guess the winner.
