Saimoe 2012 Results: A group 4, 8, 12

Another day, another surprising turn of events. In a good way, IMHO.

 

08/17: Round 1, Group A, Day 4

A04

1st 266 Remon Yamano @ Ano Natsu De Matteru
2nd 217 Masamune Usami @ Mayo Chiki!
3rd 140 Miyuki Tsubakino @ Saki

A08

1st 273 Tsukasa Ayatsuji @ Amagami SS
2nd 200 Asia Argento @ High School DxD
3rd 136 Ghutatan @ Haiyore! Nyarlko-san

A12

1st 323 Miki Hoshii @ The Idolmaster
2nd 299 Tomoka Minato @ Ro-Kyu-Bu!
3rd 46 Aoi Ogiyama @ Ro-Kyu-Bu!
Surprising was Remon’s victory over the Saki character,  as well as Miki’s victory over  the Loli Basketball characters, and surprising  I got all three right for once.
8-4
Next round:
Predictions:Even though I know Shino only, I’m going with my gut  instinct and saying that Tomo wins. In B5, as much as I like the evil Ojousama in Kanade, I know for a fact Isumi wins. Izumi can’t defeat the power of Yuru Yuri and Akari wins.

Saimoe 2012 day 3; A group 3,7,11

As the song goes: two out of three ain’t bad.

08/16: Round 1, Group A, Day 3

A03
1st 224 Nako Oshimizu @ Hanasaku Iroha
2nd 172 Maria Takayama @ Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai
3rd 106 Mero Furuya @ Sankarea

Didn’t know the characters besides Maria, so not surprised that Nako won here…

A07
1st 291 Yuuki Kataoka @ Saki
2nd 136 Rika Shiguma @ Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai
3rd 87 Tiffania Westwood @ Zero’s Familiar

A11
1st 274 Koromo Amae @ Saki
2nd 180 Lynette Bishop @ Strike Witches
3rd 65 Charlotte E Yeager @ Strike Witches

Also: no big surprise that the heavy hitters from Saki all won(and Lynette beat Charlotte :P)

Current Tally: 5-4

Next round:

A4 has a Saki character that may probably win. But I am ROOTING for Remon, Heavilly so. A8 has Tsukasa and Asia, whom I like more than the other girl. Tsukasa I want to see win. A12 has Loli Basketball vs. Idolm@ster. Rooting for Miki.

Saimoe 2012 Day 1: Results A Group 1,5,9

Results today were somewhat surprising results, at least to me. But, as always, I should expect the unexpected.

08/14: Round 1, Group A, Day 1

A01
1st 294 Saki Miyanaga @ Saki
2nd 278 Maho Misawa @ Ro-Kyu-Bu!
3rd 55 Nanako Dojima @ Persona 4
4th 41 Himari Takakura @ Mawaru Penguindrum

The first round was a no-brainer. Saki won almost effortlessly.

A05
1st 236 Mahiru Inami @ Working!
2nd 179 Lingyin Huang @ Infinite Stratos
3rd 177 Miya Tachibana @ Amagami SS

A09
1st 254 Reika Aoki @ Smile Pretty Cure!
2nd 222 Cecilia Alcott @ Infinite Stratos
3rd 107 Raika Oda @ Papa No Iukoto O Kikinasai!

As for the other two, the IS factions both lose the tag team of China and Brit-tan as Inami and the Other Reika wins this round. Strategy, or Precure faction. You decide.
current prediction; 1-2
next round predictions:

A2:
Even though another Saki character is in this round, I am gonna go out on a limb and say that Yoshinoya wins.

A6:
This one is a no-brainer. Kobato wins, even against another Saki character.

A10:
Don’t know a single character, so I will make a guess and say that Yuno wins.

Saimoe 2012 Day 1: Preview

Saimoe has officially begun, so my coverage of Saimoe is continuing with the first set of matches.And with Saki starting things out, things will get interesting, As always, most images come from animesaimoe.org.

Today’s Rounds:

Group A1:
Not a strong group, IMHO. Considering Saki is a powerhouse, unless there is a MAJOR shift in votes, Saki should and will win.

Group A4, A7:
I see some votes going directly to the IS characters. Lingyin and Cecilia will probably carry each other to victory, even though I wouldn’t mind seeing Raika(Papa) win.

Saimoe 2012 1st Preliminary: Rounds 1-8

I can only postpone this post long enough, as the 1st prelims ended today so it is time to start things up with the listings of all the winners.
