This result is confirmed.
Interesting. Saki has been a mixed bag so far, with convincing wins here and there and a momentous victory by Shizu over rival YuruYuri’s Toshinou Kyouko. They are on the wrong side of things again as their combo completely fizzles. Hiroe obviously had no chance against Saimoe HoF-to-be Nagi, who now has seventeen (!) all-time wins at her disposal while at the same time finally putting Hayate on the board this year.
As it is the mighty Group One girls strike again, as F/Z’s Saber this time putting her mark by keeping the hapless (and poor) Touka at a grand total of zero wins all-time. Do note that Saber just barely made it in Group One at 12th place – just goes to show how stacked that group was. And Touka just keeps getting these bad matches all over.
Speaking of finally getting a win, RKB just does that with the seemingly innocuous Hinata packing up quite a punch. I think she presents a serious challenge to Nagi and Louise in this block, now with Mihoko gone. Should be OOOOOHsome when we get there. Lots of hurdles to overcome though.
Prediction: 2-1 (38-10)
Picks: 2-1 (Touka ;_;) 27-21
And with that, we’re done with the first half of Saimoe 2012 First Round. The second half promises to present even more insane matchups. Should be an exciting. For now though, we have to settle with a one-day break.
