The Prelim One ends with Yuru Yuri’s Akari-Yui combo getting the best of Saki’s tandem of Koromo-Ryuuka. The expected results should offer some consolation to Akari after campaign got cut short by Saki ace and eventual champion Toki. The decent margin by which Akari won ought to be a somewhat assuring indication that there will be resistance to the MadoSaki juggernaut come Main Draw time.
Sawa and Kobato did well for their respective shows although the gap between the top-tier and the almost-top-tier series couldn’t be more apparent. The same could be said from the “almosts” to mid-tier (TLR’s Yami, Nanoha’s Hayate, etc).
Chiaki Minami finishing on the lower end of the direct qualifiers is a probably the most surprising outcome from Group 16 considering how her other sisters did.
Next comes the Comiket break, and immediately after that,four groups of Prelim Two action (starting August 13).
