So yeah, triple Achiga win as expected, with the Matsumi sisters still strutting their stuff and turning on the style even when it’s not really needed. If there were to be a repeat series winner, then these two girls would be high up in the list for Saki. If.

Nothing much to say about the rest though – Vividred still unconvincing, with Rei managing only 8th place, and Joshiraku’s ace only managing 5th. The fact that they’re all below Misaka #10032 sums it all really.

So on to Group 11 and we could possibly have an interesting battle here. Sayaka‘s representing the Madoka girls today, and she’s up against not one but two of Little Busters’ strongest representatives in the form of Rin and Kud. A win for either of them would stand them in good stead for what lies ahead, while a defeat would signal otherwise, considering that Sayaka’s the weakest amongst the main five Madoka girls.

The dark horse for today will be Akane from Vividred and Mako from Girls Und Panzer. Both series have had mixed fortunes, but neither has really impressed so far. Both Akane and Mako are the more popular girls in their respective series, so let’s see if they’re able to replicate that in Saimoe. However, it’s unlikely that either will top the group seeing how things have gone so far.

As for the rest we have:

  • Kurisu who has a decent run in past Saimoe tourneys but always end up crashing out to lolis. The Steins;Gate movie should give her a good boost though
  • Shiraitodai’s third year duo of Sumire and Teru will be Saki’s representatives for today, though their Saimoe performances are not as good as their mahjong skills. Still, they should be able to qualify easily
  • Everyone’s lovable Elsie
  • Nobuna and Katsuie will be hoping to increase the tally in the main round, with the series having 3 representatives so far in the main round
  • The prominent girls from Date A Live have so far made it, so expect the adorable Yoshino to go through here
  • Others in the tussle include Kokoro Connect’s Inaban, KoiChoco’s Chisato, Idolm@ster’s Makoto, PhotoKano’s token imouto Kanon, Yuru Yuri’s Hanako.

Prediction (Top 3): Sayaka, Kud, Rin
The rest: Akane, Kurisu, Mako, Yoshino, Teru, Elsie, Sumire, Makoto, Nobuna, Hanako, Katsuie

  1. >though their mahjong skills are not as good as their past Saimoe performances
    I think you got that backwards considering Teru already won mahjong championship twice.
