Tomoe Mami overpowered an outmatched Hotogi Shirayuki (Hidan no Aria) to advance to the Quarterfinals of Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011, and give Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica its fifteenth consecutive Main Draw win.
Mami became the third Puella Magi to advance in the Top Eight, while at the same time posting the sixth biggest vote percentage garnered in a Main Draw match (minimum of 500 votes cast).
Sakura Kyouko will go for the Block Finals sweep against Index in the next match.

2 182 Hotogi Shirayuki @ Hidan no Aria
Writeup to follow.
Yup, no competition for Mami at all as she heads into the quarter finals. She overkills her opponent yet again to extend her run of garnering more than 60% of the votes since the main round began. That said, it’ll now be interesting to see how she fares against more difficult opponents in the upcoming round.
So today’s match-up is Index against Kyouko. Perhaps the trickiest match for the Puella Magis in this round, but they are in unstoppable form at the moment. Index has done well to reach this far, but undoubtedly her vote totals were boosted in her match-up against Kirino and in her 3rd round match-up which coincided with Kuroneko’s. Even if she were to garner 300+ votes again, Kyouko would garner even more, as shown in her match against Kokoro in the previous round. As for the Mikoto saga, well I doubt it’ll have much of an effect here. Kyouko to win this.
And below are the MST results.
