Haganai continued their impressive form as Rika was able to secure a spot in the next round, having tied with Saki. The BL-loving scientist actually had the lead for most of the day before Saki upped her game in the final hours of the match. Just like her performance in the prelims, Saki continues to perform below the level she showed the previous year, and the task isn’t going to get easier for her as Sena awaits in the next round. Ironically, sending Rika through too could possibly cause some votes to be split between the two Haganai characters, though it’s likely that Rika will be sacrificed there.
Meanwhule, Saori and Komari had an easy victory over their opponents as expected, while Mokkan was hardly troubled by the Saki combo voting and put in a good shift against Awai to set up a clash against Toshinou Kyouko. That should be an interesting match to watch as tactical voting heats up in the second round.
So Saimoe takes a one-day break, but I’ll just go ahead and preview the next set of matches. Hardly any championship-tier characters in Block E, but that will hopefully give the rest a chance to shine.
Last Order has the advantage in terms of series popularity, though I expect some form of competition from Mitsuhide over here.
Yousei-san (The Fairies)
GJ-Bu has no luck in Saimoe, so Kana should be the favorite here. Though the fairies from Jintai are just the perfect troll material for 2ch to play with…
This one’s between Haruka and Isumi – the idols from Idolmaster have not been stellar in Saimoe, while the Hayate girls are on a very sharp decline. I think Haruka will edge this one out.
This one is a toss-up between Chiwa and Honoka. While their results haven’t been eye-catching, Love Live has actually done pretty decent, with 4 of the idols qualifying the second round so far. Chiwa had a better prelim result than Honoka, so anything can happen here.
