This result is confirmed.
Louise, being Louise, swarmed the vote pool with fakes in an attempt to cloud judgement, but her last shot at glory came to a dismal end as she was crushed by an ace from the Saki faction yet again. This defeat means that Louise has never and will never go beyond the Final 8, but she can still be pleased with her record of 3 QF appearances. For Toki, her victory meant she has somewhat avenged Ogura Yui’s other characters who were beaten by Louise in the earlier rounds (Alice in R1 and Hinata in the Block Finals). And her superb run continues, with another 60+% victory margin secured. Will anyone be able stop her at this rate? Maybe one of these two can…

Saki’s main yuri couple faces off against each other – a dream draw for the shippers out there. Being Saki’s traditional ace, Nodoka’s the favorite to advance here – but she can’t be complacent. After all, Saki’s already shocked most people by beating Koromo in the previous round, and the Tanoshii devil surprisingly has a higher average vote than Nodocchi – meaning that she’s able to attract voters too. As an added plus, it’s actually her birthday today! However, Nodocchi’s on the brink on making history yet again – managing 3 semi-final appearances from 3 attempts! That’s a record that could very well stay for a long time if Nodocchi goes through here. Surely, Saki will overlook her birthday present for her benefit of her best pal, eh?
tl;dr Pick: Nodoka // Prediction: Nodoka
