I'll be honest, I'm a huge Bakemonogatari fan but I do find Shinobu's inexplicable popularity slightly disturbing...

Bernkastel - Umineko no Naku Koro ni - 88

I'm disappointed in you, Japan. I thought you loved Rika?

Comiket day two is only 2 days away; I can't wait for Bern trolling in Umineko EP7, Fairy Wars, and a ton of new doujin albums to listen to.

Nice, I believe this is ANN's first time covering the Saimoe Tournament. Thanks to Gia for changing that, I'm guessing?

Totally supporting Azu~nyan & Yui this year. Anime catgrin Of course if Shana can finally win this year, I'd be more than okay with that as well.

Dang, Kaori (aka a complete side character in Saki who isn't very important at all in the story) just missed beating the main character of Oomari Himori by 5 votes.

Looks like it'll be a good year for Saki again.

I am kind of surprised ANN is covering this.

Looks promising. If Shana wins I would be shocked considering how far Yui placemed last year. I really want Nymph to win though it probably won't happen. Sad

It's a change to more casual news since the collapse of the market has made it harder to be a completely serious website, and still make a living.

What, it gets people posting, right? Laughing

This contest should also perhaps make clear that one person's moe is another person's annoying-as-all-hell.

Certainly. It was either this or Zac and Justin go back to streetwalking. Do we really want that? BTW, what's the pay like for a full time chicken little? Interpreting everything as a sign of impending doom must be hard.

I stopped voting when Kureha lost. It was too disheartening. Kureha... Anime cry

Bernkastle and Rika spoiler[aren't the same person.] Also, one of them is a spoiler[cruel, sadistic bitch] while the other isn't.

And Team Yui wins by default. Take that, Mio fanboys.

What surprised me was the amount of people who didn't like that Shana won round seven of the Diamond round. I was kind of ambivalent about it. But that she won three seems a bit much to me. I was kind of hoping Hanyuu would have placed higher I was also happy to see Yui did good.
