Astarotte no Omocha’s Lotte beats K-On’s Mio Akiyama for Group 9 win. Ochiinko’s Takanashi Nao settles for third, Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka’s Tomonori for fourth, and the witch Charlotte from Puella Magi Madoka Magica for fifth.
Lotte wins one for the new bloods; so far only new characters top this year’s preliminaries. Mio Akiyama did subpar; again proving how K-On! is receding after Azusa’s win last year (very much how Lucky Star faded in 09). Ochiinko, the highly underrated and heavily criticized anime, manages to surprises with Nao’s third place. Tomonori did poorly; again assessing Zombie’s power to be mid-tier. Puella Magi Madoka Magica now adds witches to their list as Charlotte performed magically.
As a side note, Raildex adds Musujime Awaki for a staggering 13 characters participating Saimoe. More fodders are sure to follow; it seems that Raildex is making quite an army almost similar to Saki in 09-10.
Comments: HAHAHA CHARLOTTE. HOW THE HELL IS SHE MOE? Well I quite like Tomonori and I guess it’s kinda sad to see Zombie get the dud in AST. Shiemi got the dud BOO. K-On’s receding, YAY! It’s another year for the new bloods (the other one was 09).
Who will win the next round:
Miki Sayaka. Come one completely the 5 wins! Personally I’m rooting for Victorique. Touwa Meme for third? More on this later.
