The Nisemonogatari series ended their woeful run as their ace, Hitagi, rallied to a convincing win over Aria. Seems like the Shana voters didn’t give a damn about Aria, with more Hitagi-Shana combo votes (151) recorded as opposed to Aria-Shana ones (98). Hitagi has managed to proceed to Round 3 once again, and she now faces a stern test in the form of Nodocchi. Having lost to Mafuyu back in 2010, will Hitagi be able to take it another step further two years on?
Meanwhile, Kuroyukihime fans hoping for a burst of votes were left despairing as Shana, as expected, blazed through, setting up a clash against Airi. Her fans must be feeling confident, but her real test will come when the Block Finals arrive.
So moving on, we have Kotori vs Yamada vs Rea vs Tsukihi. Should be interesting stuff- Rea and Tsukihi have already shown that they can match each other, but will they be able to handle Yamada? Strategically, it would be worthwhile for Ako or Ika supporters to eliminate the ceiling cat over here, but it may be difficult for them to pinpoint a target to vote for.
In the other match-up, Nazuna will receive combo votes with Yamada, but I bet she won’t be able to cause an upset here. Between the other two contestants, Mio has been putting in convincing performances, while Rika has struggled, only barely making it to Round Two. I think Mio would be able to continue enjoying life away from the limelight and stand as K-ON! sole representative for the next round (who would have thought that day would finally come /heh).
tl;dr Prediction: Yamada, Mio
