For once, a non-surprising result in Round 3 as Akarin was able to score a decent win over Asuna, while Sayaka triumphed over Kuroko without any fuss. A lower vote tally than what they achieved for Kyouko and Mami, but still a decently high one considering that this match was considerably less competitive than what the other two girls experienced. The Madoka faction is looking like the real deal even with the new ruling in place, and they will also go into the Block Finals with the highest representation, with 3 characters.
So Saimoe takes a one-day break, and we’ll have our Block Finals once it resumes. Despite the new ruling, it still has a good variety and more interesting possibilities when compared to what we’ve seen in the past two years, so stay tuned.
