Dog Days Millhiore astoundingly pasts through Raildex’s Shirai Kuroko for a Prelim 1 win. Anohana’s Anjou Naruko settles for third, proving she has quite a game while Yumekui Merry’s Merry proved that navel porn was enough for 4th place. Amagami’s Imouto rounded up the top 5.
Dog Days performed better than expected. 2ch response to this Spring animation wasn’t as high as Anohana and Hanasaku Iroha, so her galvanizing through first place is quite a feat. Kuroko did satisfyingly, considering her Index II screen time was at a minimum. Anaru on the other hand was subpar to the series standards. One can say that Anohana will definitely not be a Saimoe powerhouse as fans would expect. Merry did as expected with her series not being the most popular, but Tachibana Miya on 5th place is quite a feat considering she isn’t a main Amagami character. Wise to say, Amagami SS is a series to be closely watched this time around.
Comments: Oh god why are the votes so low. . . Saimoe is really going to the dumps. I mean seriously us FORENJERS have it real hard. Stop being butthurt of Rika’s win, I mean when was that 2007? Urgghhh. Anyway Anaru didn’t penetrate as I hope she would, but I did predict already that she wouldn’t be that strong. Please give her a light bracket in the first round! Also, should I really get to it and start watching Dog Days? I think I’m missing out a bit. Also, Yui did terrible! AB! really is a has been now.
Who will top the next round:
Eucliwwod Hellscythe (Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka?) or Kazari Uiharu (Raildex)
My bet goes to Eu, but Uiharu might just steal it if she isn’t careful. More analysis later.
