Dark Hour

GJGE, Hisa

1位 258票 松実玄@咲-Saki- 阿知賀編 episode of side-A
2位 126票 竹井久@咲-Saki- 阿知賀編 episode of side-A

This result is confirmed.


Nothing much to say, I guess. Kuro once again reinforced her credentials as one of the top performers of the tourney with a huge victory over Hisa, who at one point looked like she might not even hit 100 votes. The low attendance is rather disturbing even for a same-series match – perhaps the organizers will feel the same way and do something about it next year (lol who am I kidding). Although Hisa lost, she’s certainly exceeded expectations by making it this far, and she and her fans can be proud of that. As for Kuro, a day’s rest before the decisive battle – she’ll definitely need it as this will be her toughest match yet (even though she has already had a few of those!). We’ll have more on that later.

    SPOILER for those who haven’t watch Saki Achiga hen.

    Toki vs Kuro in the final. How epic and awesome is this. Toki and Kuro face each other twice in the anime and now in Saimoe 2012, they will be facing each other for the third time.

    That was one weird last minute rush -.-

    I was thinking about using Haitei to try and pick up some extra points but then….

    @Monster – Hardly a spoiler, spoiling the results would be a spoiler though


    Let’s see if Kuro and actually put up a good fight against Toki this third time around.

    Might be a mere formality for someone, but stranger things have happened…

    They’re going to have to do SOMETHING about this kind of “6/8 from one series” in the finals. I mean, really, less than 400 votes total for a semi final match? Semi finals have usually been almost 4 digits PER girl, until last year when it was saimadoka, and this year. Total voting in the finals hasn’t been this low since 2004.

    When it’s one faction deciding who their favorite girl is, no one cares, and it shows up in voting totals. If they don’t do something in 2013, no one will even vote in 2014, leaving us with the sack of idiocy that is the “international league”.

    Well I would say that’s part of it, but another reason is the bannings that keep happening, which caused the voting numbers to decline after 2008
