Round One Block C Day Two Results

Shinka, Mako, Tsukihi, Kuuko advance to Round Two.

This result is confirmed.

C02
1st 195 (64.36%) Nibutani Shinka (Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!)
2nd 55 (18.15%) Tobiichi Origami (Date A Live)
3rd 53 (17.49%) Christa Lenz (Shingeki no Kyojin)

C05
1st 127 (44.41%) Reizei Mako (Girls und Panzer)
2nd 89 (31.12%) Rias Gremory (Highschool DxD)
3rd 70 (24.48%) Darjeeling (Girls und Panzer)

C08
1st 131 (45.17%) Araragi Tsukihi (Nekomonogatari: Kuro)
2nd 85 (29.31%)Natsukawa Masuzu (OreShura)
3rd 74 (25.52%) Demon King (Maoyuu Maou Yuusha)

C11
1st 132 (44.90%) Kuuko (Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W)
2nd 109 (37.07%) Itsuka Kotori @ Date A Live
3rd 53 (18.03%) Haroukitei Kigurumi (Joshiraku)

No surprises for this round of matches, though Shinka’s victory was noteworthy as she managed to garner the highest vote % of the main round thus far, beating Azuki Azusa’s tally from the previous day. The two will cross paths if they’re able to navigate through their second round matches, so that’s one match to possibly look forward to in the future.

Elsewhere, Mako will fly the Garupan flag along with Miho in the next round. Tsukihi’s comfortably through the next round, though that’s probably the furthest she’ll go as she’ll likely face two contestants from the Big Two factions. Kuuko emerged victorious in a heated battle with her clone from another dimension, proving that she has enough fuel left in her tank.

The next series of matches feature some big names from the past, future and present…

Round One Block C Day Three Preview

C03
Makishima Saori (Oreimo)
Ika Musume (Shinryaku!? Ika Musume)
Hiiragi Kagami (Miyakawa-ke no Kuufuku)

Ika Musume actually impressed in the prelims, beating the likes of Yukari and Saki despite having not much air-time over the past year. 2008 Champion Kagami makes a return here, but only a freak result would see her beat the invader from the sea. As for Saori, Ika Musume smashed her by about 100 votes in the prelims, so there’s no chance for her here.

C06
Kurumi Erika (Precure All Stars New Stage 2)
Yazawa Niko (Love Live!)
Niwa Nagahide (Oda Nobuna no Yabou)

Putting aside the Smile Precures, Erika has actually done decent over the past few years, being one of the Precures that actually manage to qualify to the main round on a consistent basis. That said, she’s up against a more popular franchise here, and as such I expect Niko to qualify here.

C09
Minami Chiaki (Minami-ke Tadaima)
Futaba Aoi (Vividred Operation)
Sakura Kyouko (Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica)

Kyouko is one of the big favorites for Block C, and also the favorite in this match-up. Vividred’s awful performance is set to continue here. Chiaki underperformed in the prelims, and will probably come up short here unless Rikka supporters decide to help her out. Probably not so much though as Round 2 would present a better opportunity for that with Kyapten around.

C12
Tsutsukakushi Tsukushi (Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko.)
Miyamoto Konatsu (Tari Tari)
Takanashi Rikka (Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!)

A victory for Rikka, unless the Madoka faction tries to take her out here. For now, probably not.
