well, the schedule has not been finalized yet, but the official site and the wiki for this year’s Anime Saimoe Tournament 2010 have updated their pages with the dates for the nomination period, beginning as early as 6/26. though there’s a mention that the schedule for the main event is still subject to change, and considering that the nomination period is usually not given that much regard, nevertheless, Saimoe enthusiasts like me just can’t shake off the feeling that it’s finally beginning… Saimoe 2010 is coming, and it’s coming fast!
also, while i also posted this in the twitter account, it bears mentioning again that two “warm-up” tournaments from China and Korea have concluded (see sidebar), with Akiyama Mio and Fujibayashi Kyou winning respectively. i intend to put the Best 8 from both tourneys in the Archive soon.
that’s all for now, although i have a feeling that it’s gonna get busy from hereon. and with that i leave you with Ritsu.
