Rolling Thunder

Fate Testarossa joined Takamachi Nanoha in Round Two of Anime Saimoe Tournament 2010 as she pounded her opponents with the biggest victory of the First Round so far. Falling victim to Fate’s trailblazer were Saber (Fate/Stay Night), Kinoshita Yuuko (Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu) and Morishita Koyomi (Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou).

Shizuku helped Omamori Himari score their second victory in the First Round as a sterling last-hour rush enabled her to stun Hidamari Sketch’s Chika. Kirishima Kotone from Nyan Koi! and Mishima Akane from Kampfer rounded out the Block G match.

Well, the highlight of the day for me has to be that Shizuku rush. That’s just quite amazing to look at. Also Fate’s win gives her the biggest rout of the round so far, and second highest vote%. Can she keep it up next round? Let’s see what Mikan has to say about that. Expected results were expected, and it might be a good thing that Chika lost for the Hidamari faction, because that gives Miyako a chance next round (albeit a smal one) against the mighty Mikoto. Looking forward to that, in any case.

For now, let’s proceed to matches that have a lot of sunshine in them. There won’t be a lot of power in these two, but yeah, that’s how things go.

One can’t go wrong with Miyako. It would be interesting how well she performs here to gauge how remote her chance is against Misaka Mikoto. And she is also my pick here. Gotta love her chance against Suruga in this match, as the latter is not the ace of Bakemonogatari.

As for this one, it gets interesting. Sousou and Hatsune might be out of the running though, so it all comes down to Natsume vs. Isara. The latter is my pick, the former, my prediction. I think Natsume gets the nod because she’ll be helping out Miyako in the combo vote, and same vice versa.

Uh so yeah, not much to comment for now, working on a few Saimoe stuff (albeit at a glacial pace), although quite honestly my motivation took quite a hit when Hinagiku lost early. ;_; Anyway, I promise to soldier through to the end nonetheless.

Go Miyako and Isara!

    It wasn’t hard for me to decide on the Block H match. Natsume was an easy pick. Also, foolishly I mistakened her for Nori, but she’s still the pick for me. Doh!

    Block G was hard. Miya or Kanbaru. I ended up voting for Kanbaru, but I’m still split. I want to vote for Miya, but then I’ll just shift again and say Kanbaru. Man… this is tough.

    And with Isara… I’m more mad than sad about what happened in Valkryria Chronicles.
