Interest 2ch Forum's Saimoe Tournament 2010 Round 1: Groups A, B
posted on 2010-08-11 21:04 EDT by Gia Manry
The Anime Saimoe Tournament is an annual poll in which users from Japan's 2channel message board vote on the most moe (preciously cute) female anime character. Any female character in a television anime, anime film, original video anime (OVA), or web anime released between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010 is eligible for the tournament. (The main exceptions are characters from 18+ anime, who are not eligible.) The eligible characters are placed in brackets, and the winner is determined by popular vote; the winner of each bracket progresses to the next until a final vote between two characters determines the winner. This year's Anime Saimoe Tournament began on August 3 and features nearly 300 characters.
Foreigners are technically capable of participating in the tournament; English-language instructions on how to vote have been provided by an Anime Saimoe fan site.
The first seven days' brackets went as follows, with vote counts:
* Miki Noda - GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class - 267 (Winner)
Mayu Miyano - B Gata H Kei - 79
Kureha Suminoya - So-Ra-No-Wo-To - 173
Komaki Jindai - Saki - 99
Misuzu Kusakabe - 11eyes - 91
* Nazuna - Hidamari Sketch × ☆☆☆ - 288 (Winner)
Akashi - The Tatami Galaxy - 57
Kaede Mizuno - Nyan Koi! - 256
Harumi Kiyama - A Certain Scientific Railgun - 124
The tournament will take a five-day break before starting Group C and D's first rounds due to Comic Market 78, which takes place from August 13 to 15. The tournament will resume on August 16; ANN's next results report will be on August 24.
