True enough, RKB’s Maho put in a valiant effort to give Saki fits, but in the end the latter is not only loved by the tiles, but by 294 voters as well. Much like last year, a good match to set the tone for the rest of the round, albeit no major upset this time around.
Speaking of upsets, Infinite Stratos fans should be, for the lackluster performance of Rin and Cecilia – but then again, this was kind of expected. Beautiful day for Precure fans as they get a rare Main Draw win.
Inami finally gets one win after faltering in 2010, with a comfortable margin to knock out Rin and Miya.
Predictions: (3-0) // Picks: (1-2) (Was rooting for Miya, Maho and Reika)
Next up, A02-A06-A10
I already did a preview for this, nothing changes – Kobato, Ilya and Yuno should get in without much hassle. Just reposting the polls, for those who haven’t voted yet.
110 combo votes for Cecilia and Rin wasn’t enough to overcome the IS duo to overcome their opponents. Cecilia’s loss wasn’t really surprising seeing that only 5 votes separated Reika and Char when they met in the prelims. Inami won with a larger margin than I’d expected – definitely another indication that the main girls from Working!! are still threats to look out for despite a one-year absence.
Anyway, moving on to today’s matchday – well it’s not really exciting one as the winners are straightforward, at least in accordance to their prelim performances. Double Saki won’t be of much help here either as both are low-tier in terms of competitiveness.
Pick: Kobato, Saki
Prediction (3-0): Illya, Kobato, Yuno
