The Railgun duo of Saten and Uiharu emerged victorious as they secured a 1-2 finish – a decent performance considering their lack of screen-time in the second season. Awai follows her beloved Teru into the main round, with a much improved performance to show for it too as compared to last year where she had to qualify via the second preliminary round. Ro-Kyu-Bu continues their decent-but-not-championship-material form as Hinata grabs 4th, while Mikasa is set to be one of those solo-type hitters for this year’s tournament, finishing behind the basketball loli. Kumin wasn’t as popular as her other Chu2Koi counterparts, so it wasn’t surprising she had to settle for 6th in this group. im@s sends another two, but were far off the pace along with the other contestants who qualified.

On to Group 13. Well, hardly any big names here so it could very well be a quiet day. The Toyama Nao duo of Chiho and Yui make their appearance today – they are two of the more popular characters from the previous anime season, so they’ll be looking for a good performance to match today. Their counter-parts Emi and Yukino finished 3rd and 5th respectively in Group 4, so Chiho and Yui could do even better here due to a lack of competition

Kuuko will be in the tussle for that top spot, and could very well benefit from the increased focus on her in the second season of Nyaruko. Nyaruko did decent to finish 2nd in her group, so expect Kuuko to follow in her footsteps.

Other than that we have the older Tsutsukakushi sister (Tsukushi) competing today, though I’m not sure if she’s able to match up to Tsukiko or Azuki Azusa. Ro-Kyu-Bu hasn’t been hitting top form either, though Maho will be in the top half of the Top 14 for this group. Tsukihi’s another lock-in for a main round spot, along with Sakurako from Yuru Yuri and Suzuha from Steins;Gate. Hayate’s Isumi should have enough to go through, and Raildex’s Last Order should be able to complete the Biri Biri network for the main round.

As for the rest of the spots:

  • Tomonori from KoreZom, who’s one of the better performers for her series
  • The Yuyushiki duo of Yukari and Yui
  • Rias from DxD
  • A main round spot for Ai from Oreshura would be a DAI SHOURI for her
  • Lucky Star is apparently still relevant in 2013 as Tsukasa managed to secure a main round spot, so Kagamin might too
  • The ever-present Haibara Ai makes her appearance
  • Lala from To-Love-Ru
  • Yuuko from Tasogare Otome, if 2ch still remembers her
  • Yuzurina and Mei from Nakaimo

Prediction (Top 3): Chiho, Kuuko, Yui
The rest: Sakurako, Maho, Suzuha, Last Order, Tsukihi, Isumi, Tsukushi, Tomonori, Ai, Yui, Kagami
