The victory was at the expense of Ryuumonbuchi Touka, also from Saki and Kampfer’s Kondou Mikoto.
Saten Ruiko, from To Aru Kagaku no Railgun, meanwhile punished her opponents with the most overwhelming victory in the First Round so far, routing Hidamari Sketch’s Sae, Fullmetal Alchemist’s Winry Rockbell and Angel Beats!’ Hisako.

Ouch Touka. And Ui didn’t win to ensure that Azusa won’t have have to deal with a troublesome split. Saki shows that they’re capable of pulling off the big wins when it matters, and there have been no major casualities in their side, so far in so . Let’s see if they can maintain it when shit gets real next round. The other match saw a Saten rout. Called it, nothing to be surprised about that. But the fact that Railgun keeps winning big might make them much of a target to derail their chances. We’re gonna find out soon if 2ch gets a wind of it, but somehow i feel they know that already. Now to find out who Saten and Momo will have to deal with next round (although I think the results are obvious barring a monumental upset).
Poplar vs. Eruruu. Believe it or not, Eruruu is one of the winningest characters in Saimoe history. But even for someone like her, Poplar would be too much. Luck has ran out for Eruruu after all these years, and I don’t think she cannot extend her winning ways anymore. Passing the torch to Poplar is not that bad of a way to go out, really. And with regard to Poplar, she has to look impressive here, and Working fanbase has to be careful because Eruruu is capable of pulling some tricks. I feel confident about Poplar though, and she has to get one better than Inami (who hijacked her show, lol). Supporting Poplar.
And the second great match also features another character with a lot of Saimoe experience and wins to account for that. Rena is 10-4 all time in Saimoe and she’ll be up against one who has yet to notch a win – Mugi. But Saimoe is a weird thing to behold, and somewhat Mugi is favored in this match. And I think she’ll win. Yui and Chiharu sadly won’t be in the running this time, albeit I’ll be hoping that Kotegawa Yui doesnt suffer as much as Touka did. Also, applause to Rena in the end as one of the best Saimoe all-time greats, it’s a great way to go out in my opinion.
Regardless, these two matches should be fun to watch, and unfortunately this is the last “good” voting day until Round Two. Gonna wait up after this I guess, because the next few days will be K-On styling and nothing much else. Yeah, really.
