Miki Sayaka outdoes Gosick top bet, Victorique de Blois in a very close match. The one-point difference almost makes sure that Victorique is at par with the Puella Magis. 3rd would be Denpa Onna’s Touwa Meme, 4th would be the veteran Yuno of Hidamari Sketch and 5th would be Eila of Strike Witches.
Sayaka again proves Madoka Magica’s dominance in this year’s tournament; snipers will be wary to take them out in the first round. Victorique did as splendidly, proving her popularity in this contest. Touwa Meme also performed well, considering the popular age in Saimoe is between 9 to 17. Veterans are outed again, as a relatively strong Yuno manages fourth. Strike Witches and Index II adds a character each for their mass army this year.
Comments: What a match! Sayaka still won in the end though, and the sniping target behing Madoka Magica characters is getting bigger and bigger. Expect a Round 1 assassination with one of these 5 characters (Remember Mio Akiyama in 2009 and Hinagiku Katsura in 2010?). Moving on. . .
Who will win the next round:
KURONEKO. No question guys. Ookami-San is too unpopular for 2ch to realize there’s an “Aisaka-san” nominated. “Ami-san” got 4 votes or something so maybe “Aisaka-san” can get 8 votes!
Kuroneko is like Mikoto Misaka last year.
