Woo. Biribiri beat Homerun-chan.

Also, I gotta think that Eu got hit with some anti-votes. I don't really think Sengoku Otome was that big o_0

Wait - the grandmother from Hanasaku Iroha won her bracket. How serious do people treat this competition?

Well, her only competition was a character from a franchise that has pretty much been lost to otaku (Suite Precure is not well-liked). HanaIro however hits all the right notes for otaku nowadays, so the result isn't that surprising.

The other one was... well... Charlotte.

Yes, Charlotte can be seen receiving a punch here

Although it does have a much smaller, cuter form.

Well, I'm mildly surprised that Homura lost, but seeing as she was up against Biribiri, I'm not greatly surprised. The only "What?" moment I had was the grandma winning her bracket. The fact that she was even in the tournament is surprising enough.

Yuuko winning her bracket is nice.
She is very human.

Eh? Since when? A lot of otaku sites I go to seem to still like it.. maybe not as much as HeartCatch but it hardly seems like a black sheep.

Kanade Anime catgrin I'm glad she beat Mugi. I was a little worried since K-On! is ridiculously popular, though Mugi always stood out the least compared to the other characters to me (of course except when she put on her yuri goggles... the creators should have done more with that).

Wow, so Homura actually sunk; though I imagine being up against Misaka still had a great deal to do with it.

As for Sui, I'm glad she pulled through.

She is quite tender on the inside. She is actually soft and fragile. She is incredibly Moe. I know her personally, because she is MAI WAIFU.

Moe, Moe.... KYUN!

The cougar appeal.

Hurray for Victorique and Miya winning (cutest imouto ever, and yes, I'm including Mikan).

Himeji beating out Mayushii is damn shame. They were both kinda one-dimensional and useless, until yesterday, when I watched the latest episode of S;G. Mayushii should've won!

Yay for Kanade destroying Tsumugi, yay for Ryuushi and the Part-time warrior.

And how many episodes did Itsuwa appear in? Three? Seriously, a lot of those votes came from novel readers and the fact that she was in a weak group.

I luv me sum biribiri, but I'm shocked that she beat out Homuhomu. Quite an upset. Homura could've easily won in over half of the other brackets. Unlucky draw to go against such a popular tsundere. This tells me that none of the Madoka girls will end up winning the whole thing. If Homura can't win it, then I doubt any of the other girls can (except for Mami, who'll always be a winner in my heart, lol)

You just need to go back in time, round up a few more votes, and fix this.
