A few more weeks. . .

A few more weeks of hiatus. I’m really really REALLY BUSY. My Saimoe coverage is ruined, so are my blogging plans.



Biribiri fans = cheaters

There has been some rumors that some Chinese dude has been multi-voting on Mikoto Misaka since Round 1. This explains the relatively- way too high vote count of hers. The same Chinese dude claims to have helped Saten in the previous year-hence her reaching Quarter Finals.

Multi-voting causes a lot of ruckus in J-Saimoe. In fact Nagi of HnG only managed to reach the finals because of multi-voting through buying lots of phones; something that wasn’t banned until after her match with Koromo in which it was discovered.

This is kinda sad news for me. To find out that my TOP character to win it all has way too many eager fans who have been cheating around. It has caused many sacrifices such as Victorique and Homura, who also are my favorites too. I just don’t know anymore.

Looking at the match today is even more depressing with Kanade barely keeping up to a Strike Witch.

Saimoe 2011 Block Finals Preview

1st Match: Mikoto vs. Lotte

Lotte is a top tier character, beating out Mio in the prelims and Kurisu in Round 3. Now she faces the toughest opponent yet in the form of Mikoto Misaka, who has been obliterating rounds like it was nothing after her Prelim slump with Homura (who she beated with quite a margin in round 1. An assassination attempt might occur but expect a mighty win by Biribiri here.

2nd Match: Tenshi vs. Erica

Its pretty clear on what’s gonna happen here. Tenshi has beaten witches badly before, I don’t think she can be stopped now.

3rd Match: Madoka vs. Elsie

Elsie has performed rather spectacularly since her Prelim debut which she placed first. Unfortunately she meets her god in this day. . .

4th Match: Ika-Musume vs. Yuno

Yuno has put Hidamari Sketch in the books and she’s definitely done well, being the really old character that she is. A big invasion is to be expected in this round.

5th Match: Sayaka vs. Haqua

Haqua has a rather “god’s touch” in her, beating out Champion Azusa Nakano, and a favorite in the form of Ohana Matsumae. This round though she’s gonna face God’s faction and again I think her fate is very much sealed. . . or obliterated if you will.

6th Match: Mami vs. Hotogi

Hotogi has been blessed with vote tactics since her first round in the tournament, beating favorites like Cecilia of Infinite Stratos and A-Channel’s Yuuko who beated out Shana. But the vote tactics end today as Top-Seed Tomoe Yellow Ranger is here, who was probably involved in the vote tactics.

7th Match: Index vs. Kyouko

Index managed to defeat a champion candidate in the form of Kirino Kousaka. This day though she faces the Red Ranger who ranks higher than championship tier- God tier if you will. I see the match close though as Index would never lose without the fight; the thing she’s been doing since 2009.

8th Match: Kuroneko vs. Houki

Houki might’ve ousted Aria but I still don’t think its enough to beat one of the Resistance’s Leader, Kuroneko who has been spectacular since her Prelim debut. I don’t think there’s a challenge here.
