  • Anime Saimoe Tournament 2007







    Yes, it's that time of year.
    Express your definition of "moe" with votes!!



    For those who are new to Saimoe, it is an annual tournament held by 2ch (Japanese forum website) between June and October to decide who the moest(?) anime character is. It started in 2001, and in 2004 it was a couple of hundreds votes at most per battle, but it grew rapidly, and by 2006 the championship battle collected almost five thousands votes.

    HOW IT WORKS
    Spoiler

    The First Primary:
    Each character is assigned to one of 18 groups randomly.
    You choose 10 characters at most from each group in the first primary.
    Top eight characters in each group will automatically go on to the tournament. (In case of having more than 8 characters due to tie, all will go on.)
    Between 9th and 32nd will move to the second primary.
    The Second Primary:
    Each character is assigned to one of 9 groups randomly.
    You choose 6 characters at most from each group in the second primary.
    Top 16 characters in each group will go on to the tournament. (If there are more than 16 characters because of same votes, all will go on as well.)
    From the first round in the tournament, you can only choose one character in each battle.
    The Main Tournament:
    From the main tournament, you can only vote on one character per group.

        • It takes at least 2 hours to issue the vote code (it's instant if you use cellphone but I haven't done this, so I have no clue how to do it.) So come back after specified time in the pic above.

    ##########



    IMO this year's tournament should be very interesting and intense.
    Two series (Rozen Maiden series and Magical Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha series) that had been dominating Saimoe Tournament past a few years will certainly be back.
    But Rozen Maiden Ouverture had only two episodes and may not be enough to get new fans (except for maybe Suigintou). And lolitic(?) Nahona and her friends have grown up and that may hurt their popularity?

    Most last year's strong champ contenders will be back.
    Shana is back (Shana vs. Louis of Zero no Tsukaima vs. Nagi of Hayate the Combat Butler!?? ) and so is Strawberry Panic.
    Others that will be back are Utawarerumono, ARIA, Higurashi no Nakukoro ni, Mi-Z-HiME, Ichigo Mashimaro, Simoun, Kashimashi, etc, etc.

    There had been alot of new anime series with moe characters to grab votes away from those veteran characters.
    Negima!?, Manabi Straight! Hidamari Sketch, Otome wa boku ni koishiteru, Lucky Star, Tokimeki Memorial, Akazukin, Zero no Tsukaima, Kamichama Karin, etc, etc.
    (I'm sure you can name more. Oh yes you can! )

    I wonder how they will do against veterans.

    So before real battle starts, who do you think will win?
    Will veterans hold on new comers and stay on top or will new comers get their moment to shine?
    (I know it's almost impossible to predict, but hey it's for fun )



    Anyway, the battle should start sometimes in July.

      Man, Namiko sensei of Kashimashi got only 20 votes and was in 68th...
      So there was a reason why she hasn't had a boyfriend for entire her life.

      For Group 15....
      Will Kagami of Lucky Star take No.1 spot in Group 15??
      Or others like Nodoka of Negima!? and Chika Itou of Ichigo Mashimaro will steal that spot?
      I like Chika-chan most. Then Nodoka and Yamada-san of Honey & Clover II
      Kagami is ok, but I'm more of Tsukasa clan, so..

        KAGAMI ALL THE WAY!! (sorry for the caps ) *raises banner saying Kagami for life*

        Matsuri got second? I am glad she got that spot ^^. And good job to Kaguya who got into top 8 even though she only got a few appearance in Code Geass

        @RCF: Sorry for the mistake I guess the impression of that scene of the accident got too engraved into my mind and made me that she died instead of her surviving the accident.

        I know you want me! You know I want you!

            Now no more worries that h_king will kill kitten. Phew. Poor kittens can sleep safely.

            It was kinda surprising that Tabitha took No.6 spot. Like Konata has said, I guess flat-chest has alot of demand.
            And Oh my.... Jaiko. Mizuho mama lost to Jaiko...??

              Maybe because there are too much big chest are available right now .

              I'm kind of surprise that Alisa made into top 8. And Vita, people sure love psycho loli, aren't they ?

              Lastly, congratulation, Kagami .

                BANZAI~!! Kagami, Banzai!!!!
                Chika also did nicely at #3, while Vita is expected to steal high spots.
                Ugh, Souseiseki. Die plx. Matsuri and Sakuya should have gotten ahead of her >.> But nice to know Isumi and Saku are doing well.
                For an extra, Arisa really is surprising. But yeah, Arisa was my fave in season 1 next to Fate. xD

                  Kagami BANZAI!! As all have wished for she stole the 1st place spot and beat that desu-queen in number of votes. She has been dominating for too long, its time for her to step off the stage

                    Rejoy, the kitten lives!

                    Like stated before, Lucky Star better not be so similar to SHnY that they fall victim to civil war before the final rounds too. (Curse the organizer and their "random" group sorting)

                    Today (Round 16) Louise will dominate her group like Kagami did, and 17 will be Shana's field. However, I don't see anyone from the last 3 groups topping Kagami's records, thus making her the preliminary queen

                        Sorry, it was a classmate, not classmates.
                        If I remember correctly, she asked Yuuichi about Shiori after she saw Shiori on campus even though she's been skipping school since it stared. But I may be completely wrong.

                        Here is a picture of her on TBS's Kanon site.

                          LOL WUT?

                          1. Kagami and Konata are not even in the same group.

                          2. Konata lost to Suigintou of Rozen Maiden.

                          3. Aya Hirano is seiyuu of Konata, not Kagami.

                          4. Souseiseki already win over Matsuri.

                          5. All of these happened 2+ days ago.

                          6. "Minami is waaaaaaaaaay more moe than Kagami..." lol wut?

                              Louise took the top position in this group.
                              I thought Setsuna of Negima!? would do much better than she did, but she disappointingly settled at 4th.
                              Real Makoto of Kanon did well at 9th.
                              And WHAT?!?! Nina of Code GEASS Lelouch of the Rebellion advanced to the 2nd primary?!? She's just sicko!!!
