    Haha, I see the tagline has changed again…

    Interesting though, I have a strong feeling this might be HnG faction knocking out some big competition through fake votes. It makes me wonder what would have happened in SaiMoe if the HnG and LS factions had not butted heads so early with the Maria vs Kagami match.

    Well, at least it’s a commendable showing from a first-timer. I still don’t see what’s so appealing about Schtinku. I doubt she’ll reach the Finals though.

    i thought when I came here that the site would be closed mourning the loss of Tsukasa.

    Come on guys, we still have Rena and Nipah.

    What I said about dark clouds gathering over Tsukasa’s head turned out to be true. Sadly.

    My only relief is that we won’t have to hear that motherfcking Mad Dog anymore, that guy have done too much harm to the L*S faction, drawing unwanted attention on their characters.

    If I were to close the site to mourn, I would’ve done so way earlier when Kagami lost to Rena.

    That being said, I’m just supporting Tsukasa mainly because I just don’t feel anything for the dolls.

    Still got next year’s Saimoe though :).

    @Likkun: My tagline change isn’t related to Saimoe though.

    For all we know, Mad Dog could have already killed himself in so much despair…

    And the talk about the younger twin sister’s revenge scenario against Rena isn’t going to happen apparently.

    Then… Another Rozen OAV is announced!

    This is why I don’t buy that “this will be our last saimoe for our doll joints :’” excuse. They said the same thing in 2006, look what happened.

    So, this pretty much guarantees a higurashi civil war. While I would love to see Nagi go through to the finals, I doubt it’ll happen. And Rika vs Shinku isn’t even a contest, not only is Rika superior, the LS faction will probably back her with revenge votes.

    I just don’t care anymore. With the results of today’s match my favorite character is now gone. None of the remaining characters would even be in my top 20.

    I am happy and surprised Tsukasa made it this far so I won’t whine about the results. She at least did better than some of my other favorites, like Hinagiku and Kagami for example.

    Remaining characters:
    Rena and Rika – Best characters in their show, but I got tired of that show and stopped watching 1/2 way through season 1
    Shinku – Probably the 3rd or 4th best doll, not even close to top spot Desu
    Nagi – Probably my favorite still remaining, but 3rd or 4th favorite character in her own show

    LOL, so true. At least we normal Kyo-Ani admirers would be rid of him once and for all.

    Anyway, I probably won’t follow next year’s Saimoe if the RM producers release yet another OVA just to ensure more dolls are eligible.

    I bear no grudge against Shinku, but enough dolls please. They’re becoming the Manchester United of Saimoe already, LOL. (I don’t support United BTW. :p )

    i always thought the Dolls and Nanoha were the Red Sox and Yankees.

    And I welcome the Dolls in Next years match as long as we get another Nanoha OAV to jeep Nanoha and Friends in the spotlight.

    I’m bummed Tsukasa lost too.

    I’m a Higurashi fan as well so I can’t complain, but I still like L*S a heck of a lot more than Rozen Maiden…

  23. Sheba Said,

    October 30, 2007 @ 12:59 am

    How many were seriously expecting L*S to hit the semi-finals, the finals or even grabbing the champion title?
    If Haruhi’s last year performance has taught me anything, it’s that a series that drew Anon’s ire is unlikely to make it so very far.
    It should teach people what to expect in 2008 for Clannad.

    Hopefully, us anime fans doesn’t swear silly and blind oath of allegiance to random anime fandoms.
    Well that’s what I hope for you guys.

    My despair meter is low anyway, I’ve lost Chikaru and Tamao, I’ve lost Matsuri, Mai, Fate, Hayate, Teana, Reinforce II and the Sonozaki sisters. I still Rena and Rika.

    And I hope Hanyuu perform well in 2008.

    GG, Tsukasa Lost…..SaiMoe Has failed me. Dont care anymore. I hope no one wins… except for Nagi.
    Why? Why did Tsukasa have to fall? Why did all the KyoAni Characters Have to fall? Hoping for RM to fall…..

    Rika must win.

  27. Kinny Riddle Said,

    Xellos, Nanoha will be eligible next year because StrikerS spans before and after the cut-off date. So does LS.

    2008 is gonna be quite big: Nanoha, LS, Haruhi, Clannad (maybe in KSaimoe), Shana, Higurashi, ZnT, HnG. Ideally no dolls = no more 2ch attachment to them = competition more open.

    Don’t forget 4chan’s blackhand behind L*S’s losses. They’re reason why Rena is still here in the first placc

  29. Sheba Said,

    >> Don’t forget 4chan’s blackhand behind L*S’s losses.

    It was pretty much clear that a L*S or Kanon char are doomed to never get a shot to the champion title or runner-up when 4chan and 2ch have their words to say about it.

    The question I asked myself about L*S characters, when Saimoe just started, was: “How long a L*S char can run in Saimoe before to be knocked out by the internet hate machine?”

    Tsukasa and Konata made it as far as Yuki Nagato in 2006.

    Let’s not get started on Mad Dog’s antics in animesuki and 2ch that just made the matter worse and sealed their fates.

    Count me in to support Rena over Nagi, I prefer Yandere over Tsundere and oppai over DFC. And Rika, Yukari Tamura and a character who is a Stand user >> Slavery endorsement doll.

    With L*S gone, it looks like 4chan’s rozen alliance is falling apart as soon as Shinku won, let’s see if it will have an effect in the semi-finals.

    >Kinny

    i know Nanoha is still eligible but i do want another oav to help keep the interest alive. A nine month hiatus is going to cost the series some fans.

    You left off the Evangelion girls Rei and Asuka and Misato

    4chan was irrelevant for Shinku’s victory. If you look at the foreign votes, you’ll see that they were overwhelmingly in Tsukasa’s favor (437 to 296). Shinku won thanks to the many doll lovers on 2ch.
    I am a bit sad for Tsukasa, but glad that a doll reached the Top 4, because Gin deserved to be there but lost to hate votes. Shinku took a small revenge on behalf of her sister.
    Now I just hope to avoid the all-Higurashi final, it would be boring.

  32. cdeeee Said,

    October 30, 2007 @ 8:26 am

    I wouldn’t say 4chan was irrelevant. Lucky Star has tons of fans and always has better foreign votes then anything. Some 4chan members not voting for Shinku could have made her lose. Like what happened with Junk. Shinku was well ahead in Japanese votes, but barely won anyway because of foreign votes. So, yes they did help in the end.

    I am still wondering how it would have gone w/o the Mad Dog’s antics that have drawn so much unwanted negative attention to the L*S characters. Maybe the results would have been the same, or not. But those who supported L*S characters likely felt there were a before and after Mad Dog. Maybe a lot of them have found in him the scapegoat for their characters’ final demise.

    Dont say that. They could release another Rozen OAV again.

    It’s funny when some people say that the tournament is fail when their bets lose or when girls from another series owns girls from a more famous series.

    I guess I wouldn’t know how that feels considering that I’m just observing the tournament, as well as the fan reactions. ^_^

  40. Likkun Said,

    October 30, 2007 @ 10:12 pm

    It seems that not supporting more of a show for SaiMoe’s sake is rather sad though. You don’t want a series to continue just because you can’t handle a little competition? That’s pretty weak.

    @Kurogane
    I know the change refers to something different. But obviously the Tsukasa tagline doesn’t quite work anymore either.

    LOL 4chan, now that all KyoAni anime characters are gone, they got back on trashtalking higurashi chars, because only a loli/tsundere/doll character (strike what you dont need) shall win Saimoe. *rolleye*
