Nero Hour

Yuzurizaki Nero successfully opened Tantei Opera Milky Holmes’ Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 Second Round campaign with a nailbiting win over Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko’s Maekawa. The final proved to be Nero’s hour as she broke away from Maekawa in that span just enough to clinch the victory.

Block C Round Two started with yet another Kaname Madoka laugher, this time at the expense of MM’s Isurugi Mio and Astarotte no Omocha’s Ingrid Sorveig Sorgrims. Madoka garnered the highest vote percentage by far achieving a whopping 65.55 percent of the votes cast in that match.


1 333 Kaname Madoka @ Puella Magi Madoka ☆ Magica [65.55%]
2 119 Isurugi Mio @ MM! [23.43%]
3 56 Ingrid Sorveig Sorgríms (Ini) @ Astarotte no Omocha! [11.02%]

1 218 Yuzurizaki Nero @ Tantei Opera Milky Holmes [44.13%]
2 205 Maekawa-san @ Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko [41.50%]
3 71 Ritos Tortilla @ Shukufuku no Campanella [14.37%]

(LuniazKun’s analysis to follow – frustra)

Well, what can I say? It was always going to be a close match, and the final rush proved to be crucial as Nero seized the win. I guess Denpa doesn’t look the same without Erio, eh? As for Milky Holmes, they passed their first tricky obstacle for the round, and the second one follows up shortly as Elly battles it out with Laura and Eclair.

This could be turn out an interesting battle – Laura hails from one of the strongest factions, but is perhaps their weakest representative of the ones remaining in the contest; Elly is mid-tier among the Milky Holmes cast, while Eclair still remains one of Dog Days’ top prospect. Comparing prelim+R1 statistics though, it seems it’ll be down to either Laura and Elly – both have similar personal records, so how will this turn out? With Rin crashing out to Hartmann a few days back, Elly backers would be fancying their chances here.

A tough one… IS has the numbers, though Laura has not been receiving much love as the other main IS girls in the tourney so far. I guess I’ll go with my gut feeling (inb4 it fails me again trololol) and go for Elly over here.

And of course, Ika will win her match to commemorate the arrival of the second season of her show.

Picks: Elly, Yui Kotegawa
Prediction: Elly, Ika Musume

    D2-1 was the first round 2 match with less than 500 votes since 2004/09/14!

      Wow, I didn’t realize that. That’s pretty… sad.
