Almost any female character in a television anime, anime film, original video anime (OVA), or web anime released in Japan between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 is eligible for the tournament. The main exceptions are characters from 18+ anime, who are not eligible.

*Note: Nyarlathotep is the only top 10 vote-getter to fail at advancing to the third round. She fell to No. 1 vote-getter, Kuro Matsumi.

Rie Kugimiya continues to be the most represented voice actress going into the third round with six entries still in — Yuuki Kataoka, Iori Minase, Astarotte Ygvar, Louise De La Valliere, Nagi Sanzenin, and Shana. Second, Kana Hanazawa held strong and didn't lose any of her three characters remaining in the tournament (Kobato Hasegawa, Kuro Matsumi, and Charlotte Dunois). Only voice actresses Yui Ogura (Toki Onjouji, Hinata Hakamada) and Rina Hidaka (Airi Kashii, Ririchiyo Shirakiin) still have two characters left in the tournament, while the rest of the field only have one girl left.
