Saimoe Fantasy 2012: Round 1 (A-D)

saimoe fantasy

The real battle starts now! EDIT: UPDATED

You will predict the winners of each of the three matches in a particular day. Once you have done so, sort them out by the vote margin they are likely to win by (in other words, the difference in votes between 1st and 2nd of a match-up) in decreasing order. (highest 1st, lowest 3rd)

The scoring system will be as follows:

5 points per correct winner
5 points if order is correct

Confused? Here’s an example.



Declaring Riichi – By declaring Riichi, you’ll stand a chance to gain an extra 10 points if you get the three winners and the order right. However, if any one of them is wrong (including the order), you will be deducted 5 points. For those who are not familiar with how it works, here’s an example.

P.S Micchi, Punyuru, Mayama – you will be able to declare a no-penalty Riichi once as a reward for finishing in the Top 3 in the prelims . Leave a comment here if you wish to use it.

Toki Shift – Introducing the new Toki Shift. Ever wanted to be able to see into the future? Well, now you can! (Ok, I’m just joking). Using Toki Shift will enable you to modify your entries up to 18 hours after kick-off. Woo, scary. However, it comes at a heavy price – you will be deducted 10 points upon using it. You can only use this move TWICE throughout the whole of Round 1, so be careful. Toki Shift cannot be used on the last day of Round 1 (17 September).

\アッカリ~ン/(Akari~n) – This allows you to submit a blank entry in place of an actual character participating in a match-up. The blank entry will be filled up with the eventual winner of a match-up. Here’s an example of how it works. You can only use this move TWICE throughout the whole of Round 1, but Akarin is a nice girl so no points will be deducted.

Also, you can’t Toki Shift and \アッカリ~ン/ at the same time. To use either of them, just post a comment here.


In addition to that, there are 3 bonus questions for you to answer in the form, and 5 points will be given for each correct answer. There’s also a survey question with regards to the deadlines for daily modifications of your entries – this one obviously has no points.

Submit your entries for Block A-B here.
Submit your entries for Block C-D here.

Brackets are here. Do take note of the dates carefully.
Prelim stats might come in useful: Prelim I / Prelim II

You can view your entries for A-B here, and C-D here.

Current time in Japan (GMT +9)
Deadline for form submission (A-B): 14 August 01:00 hrs GMT+9
Deadline for form submission (C-D): 23 August 01:00 hrs GMT+9
Deadlines for daily modifications will be dependent on results of the survey and will be reflected here later.

Based on the results of the survey, deadline for daily modifications will be before the start of the match-ups (ie. 01:00 hrs GMT+9 of each matchday).

Have fun scratching your heads over the next week!

  1. @lestersap: Can you re-submit your entry with the actual names instead? Thanks.
    Edit: (or I’ll assume it goes according to the order of the names and matches, eg. your first matchup entry would be Mahiru-Reika-Saki)

  2. Question: Do you use \アッカリ~ン/ only when you first submit entries or can you use it during the round? When I read “To use either of them, just post a comment here,” it kinda conflicted with what you said about how to use \アッカリ~ン/ in the paragraph before…

      1. Alright, and can you declare Riichi as much as you’d like and even use either Akari~n or Toki Shift on a day where you declared Riichi? Thanks for the quick responses 😀

      2. Yes, Riichi can be declared as much as you like and it can be used together with Akari~n and Toki Shift

  3. How will riichis be used after rounds 1 and 2? Round 3 is only two matches a day and everything after is 1 match a day. I just need to know by which round I need to use the free riichi. Thanks!

    Also, what’s the rule on using two \アッカリ~ン/ on the same day, if any?

    1. Yeah, you’ll have to use the free riichi in Round 1.

      You can use two \アッカリ~ン/ on the same day.

  4. Sorry for the repetitive questions, but I got another one ;~;

    Is there any place to see what the results of the current day is at the moment you check it? For example, it’s the 8/15 matches going on today and I’m curious to see who’s doing well at the halfway point of the voting. I’m just wondering if there is any way of seeing the results as time progresses instead of only finding out at the very end.

    Thank you!

    1. All right, I will amend your entry once it hits the 18-hour mark.

      Till then, you can still make changes if you wish to do so.

      1. Changing to:
        Akari Akaza
        Isumi Saginomiya
        Yuka Hanaki

        still with riichi.

        Also, nice that the time allowed to change it is THREE quarters of the way into the match.

      2. Wow, I hate this match day, using toki shift is stressful. I have a bad feeling that I’ll have to change this again.
        Changing predictions again to:
        Akari Akaza
        Isumi Saginomiya
        Shino Amakusa

        still using riichi of course.

      1. I officially hate toki shift. Not using this again unless its super obvious who’s going to win.

  5. Alright, time to get some points!

    Changing tomorrow’s entry to Toki Onjouji, \アッカリ~ン/, \アッカリ~ン/.

    And that’s a riichi, desu wa!

  6. It can’t be helped. I’ll have to use THAT.

    Toki Shift, Riichi, Shinobu Oshino > Yozora Mikazuki > Azusa Nakano, 3 dora, mangan 2000/4000.

      1. Who is responsible for that Chihaya comeback at the end? What the heck, Japan. Oh well, it’s not like there could ever have been a better situation to waste a toki shift.

  7. It’s Showtime!!… i want to use my first Toki Shift… and i’ll change my entry to:

    1.- Chris
    2.- Minna
    3.- Ritsu

    Off course, add a riichi!!!!

  8. Well… it’s time to recover some points…

    I’ll change my entry for August 23rd:

    – Kanon Nakagawa
    – \アッカリ~ン/
    – Shizuno Takakamo

    And, off course, add a riichi, and rinshan kaiho!!!

  9. I’d like to change my entry for 8/28 to:
    Kisaragi Chihaya, Louise de la Valliere, Fukuji Mihoko (no riichi)

    1. Let’s just use up that last Toki shift so I don’t have to suffer its evil any more.

      Yayoi Kise
      Sherlock Shellingford

      and riichi. I REGRET NOTHING!

  10. Oh damn forgot about the blank spots I left cause I was short on time when submitting my entries <_<

    8/29 – Hajime, Madoka, Karuta
    8/30 – Nagi, Hinata, Touka

      1. Yes, it’s perfectly fine to do so. As for the fakes… weird stuff do happen when Louise participates. /heh
