5 Sakis. Not bad. Only lost Hajime and Shizuno which isn't too surprising. One only had a few minutes of screentime in Achiga and even then was a supporting character in the first series and the other is a monkey. Add in them crazy RieKugi fans who love to cloud the results with their fake votes and that's pretty much how it shakes out.

Is there any proof of this or are you just upset that Kugi characters do well?

I predict Akarin as the winner.

It's common knowledge of anybody who tracks Saimoe. It's mostly used in anti-voting of course. Cthuga/Hisa will be a much easier opponent for Astarotte to face in the group C final than Shizuno would have been.

If you want proof then just check out the chart here that shows the difference between the fake votes and the actual results:

I actually loved this result. As great as both characters are, you really can't give up the innocent charm of Hinata. Laughing

So far, Round 2 has been dull with the exception of Mei literally stomping her competition. Things really won't heat up until round 3. When Block B becomes a very continues to be a death block and much more so with Mei potentially making it an interesting matchup for Akarin.

There are only a handful of other matches that I'm really watching in Round 2, including Yui vs. Taiga match (aka 2009 Saimoe Final rematch), Miyako vs. Chitanda vs. Ririchiyo, Kuro vs. Ryuuka vs. Nyaruko, and Shana vs. Kuroyuki-hime.

Kuro is up against Ryuuka? Hmmm, Nyaruko has a definite chance then with the Saki vote split.

With just how overwhelming her presence was in the second season, I would have thought those jokes would have ended by now.
