So yeah, the characters I identified yesterday made up the top few positions in this group, except for Kanzaki. A somewhat comfortable winning for Misaki in the end, considering that the 2nd prelims have been a tight affair most of the time. Also, it seems like Kaoru’s the least popular Amagami SS girl, at least in Saimoe. TWGOK’s Kusonoki was also able to squeak in to the main round.
