Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai’s Gokou Ruri completed the Top Eight lineup of Anime Saimoe Tournament 2011 after winning the Block H clincher against Infinite Stratos’ Shinonono Houki.
Kuroneko at first appeared to struggle against Houki, but after the fog of war was lifted it was revealed that the OreImo ace was leading from wire-to-wire, as she joined Astarotte Ygvar, Erica Hartmann, Kaname Madoka, Ika Musume, Miki Sayaka, Tomoe Mami and Sakura Kyouko as the eight remaining survivors.
1 446 Kuroneko (Gokou Ruri) @ Ore no Imouto
2 301 Shinonono Houki @ Infinite Stratos
Quarterfinal pairing to be revealed in an hour or two, for the meantime, here’s my yearly Top Eight poster:
