Madoka Magica’s titular character crushes foes and logs in first in tight Group 16. On second is Index, the namesake of said series, third would be SW’s ace, Sanya, fourth would be Anohana’s Menma, and to cap of the top five would be Yuuki Mikan of To love Ru.
Madoka’s godly performance earned her a seat in the top 4 percentage votes all time in the Prelims with over 58%. All 5 Madoka Magica main characters all earned a top spot in the Prelims, a feat only matched by the likes of Rozen Maiden(2005-2006), Saki(2009) and Suzumiya Haruhi(2006).
Index II/Railgun logged in a massive 16 characters (not yet counting the ones that would go in the 2nd Prelim) which would almost be already on par with Saki in 2009. This army with about 3-4 aces will either dominate the competition or become Round 1 fodders. Strike Witches has 11 characters, again another massive army but might end up as early round fodders as demonstrated in 2009.
For the other characters: Anohana’s Menma did impressive after Anaru’s lukewarm Prelim 1 performance, Same with Mikan of To love Ru. IS completely disappointed with Houki at 6th, proving that the only character enough to go deep into the competition is Charlotte. KoreZom continues its dismal performance.
Comments: GOD INDEED. Madokasoawesome. I think I’m gonna post a Saimoe so far thoughts tomorrow so hang in to that. I don’t want to report on Prelim 2 so see me in the main round!
