Saimoe 2011: Round 1, Day 23

Winners: Mami Tomoe (Madoka Magica), Nano Shinonome (Nichijou), Shirayuki Hotogi (Aria)

Mami was able to get another victory for "Madoka Magica," as expected. In fact she provided the most crushing defeat of her opponents yet this year. Not as devastating as Azunyan's first round match last year, but still impressive nonetheless. Nano was able to prove that "Nichijou" wont totally live in the dark shadow of its KyoAni sisters, & can pull its own. The only surprise here was that Shirayuki was able to defeat Nako. Didn't see that one coming, but for me at least there have been far more devastating results this round. Full results:

1st 447 Mami Tomoe @ Puella Magi Madoka Magica
2nd 209 Sanae Nagatsuki @ Squid Girl
3rd 64 Noel Kannagi @ Sora No Oto

1st 343 Nano Shinonome @ Nichijou
2nd 232 Mii Konori @ A Certain Magical Index
3rd 80 Elizabeth Warren @ Soft Tennis

1st 332 Shirayuki Hotogi @ Hidan No Aria
2nd 258 Nako Oshimizu @ Hanasaku Iroha
3rd 89 Subaru @ Afterschool Pleiades

Today, Saimoe undergoes a British invasion! First up we have the lovely Cecilia Alcott from "Infinite Stratos" going up. She's competing against the irresistible Noa Hiiragi (MM), who's my pick to hopefully win tomorrow. Unfortunately, Cecilia will likely pull a victory for jolly old England.

Next up from the UK we have Avril Bradley from "Gosick." Her series really garnered a strong fan-following last season, so she has a good shot at making it two victories for the motherland. However, if there's one thing that Saimoe has taught us over the years it's to never underestimate the powers of "Hidamari Sketch." Nora may finally be able to pull a first round victory.

Finally, this group doesn't have any British characters, but it does have the lovely Momo from "To Love-ru!" It also sees "HOTD" making its Saimoe debut with the busty & strong Saeko trying to beat the odds. But again, you can never underestimate "Hidamari." Hiro may very well pull out a victory, but I'm thinking & hoping that Momo is the one to advance.

Shirayuki's victory was pretty surprising in that Hidan no Aria actually managed to score its first victory. However, I did see one list on Sankaku Complex which considered her one of the funniest anime characters. I think I may've seen a couple other indicators that she's one of more likable characters from that show (plus, she's a busty yandere... oddly, I still consider Riko my personal favorite).

I could go either way on Noa or Cecilia, though I might prefer the English ojou-sama (who happens to be my favorite of the IS girls). Though, my aforementioned Pixiv friend will no doubt be happy if Noa can advance (lucky for him, I'm incapable of voting). In one of the other rounds, I'm personally rooting for Shichijou Aria. We may've lost Anal (Anjou Naruko), but I'd still like to see the anal-obsessed, busty ojou-sama make it through. Sadly, Avril seems to be dominating the match from what I've seen. Damn. -_-

On another note, I've been seeing a lot of joke ballots cast this round for Shiina Mafuyu, often accompanied by the phrase "Shiina Mafuyu ore no yome" (Shiina Mafuyu is mai waifu). Dunno why... maybe because both she and Cecilia have long blond hair with a ribbon tied in it, but even that's kinda stretching it. Speaking of which, for the past few rounds, I've been seeing joke ballots for Akaza Akari... weird.

While the girl from the zombie series may be popular and boobed, Who know how many people Nana has.

I like Aria from SYD. Not sure if she's win but...

And Noa is cute. Her sidekick/friend is a flat chest fan to an extreme though.
