Mikoto Misaka wins Saimoe opener.
3rd 180 Jun Nagase @ The World God Only Knows
4th 161 Nagisa Mikogami @ Animal Detectives Kiruminzoo
3rd 57 Sara @ Jewelpet
3rd 214 Nodoka Manabe @ K-On!
Kill: Proclaimed second strongest character in the tournament, Homura Akemi, is gunned down by Raildex favorite, Misaka Mikoto in one of the most interesting Saimoe Openers witnessed in history (2007 would like to contest).
Upset: Not for me at least. While I do feel sad that Homura has to take an exit, it was for the greater glory (of me) as Mikoto manages the would-be impossible to proclaim a few days ago.
Veteran vs Newbie: So veterans haven’t totally lost yet. This really sets the tone/rivalry in this year’s Saimoe.
Vulnerability: Puella Magis can be killed?!!? By more than 100 votes even!?!?!? Nah. I’m pretty sure Madoka just got stronger at this point. What should be watched though are early favorites like Kuroneko and Ika-Musume in their not so easy matches.
REJOICE: BIRIBIRI WON HAHAHAHA I LOVE SAIMOE.
Prediction: Cordelia, Eu, Mayuri
Picks: –, Eu, Mayuri (No “Yume Note” for Minami I guess…)
HAHAHA SAIMOE IS AWESOME.
