    Wow. Nipah won. She’ll definitely have a hard time against Nagi.

    Woo, Phase 2 complete. If Nagi wins, then there is most certainly something wrong with this picture.

    So to continue with my quest to prove myself wrong, I will most definitely be voting Rika in the finals.

    Voting Rika as well. I don’t have anything against Shinku, but I’m glad she lost. She did not deserve to get this far at all. The finals should be interesting. Kind of funny neither are from any powerful faction. I guess all their strategy bit them in the ass and they are gone now.

    >> She did not deserve to get this far at all.

    I agree here. All of her opponent, excepted Tsukasa, were pathetically weak. Tsukasa, otoh, got through San AND Desu.

    It’s fcking sad that this saimoe has mostly lost its flavor because idiots and rabid fanatics of every major factions were manipulating their asses off to knock down every threats that looked unpleasant in their eyes and their plans.
    “Outrage! Kagami knocked out Maria and Hinagiku! INTERNET RAEG!”, “Suigin Tou killed Fate! Revenge!”, “Take that Louise, this is for Mai and Suigin Tou! DIE!”, etc…

    Does anyone honestly believe these are the two most popular characters in all of 2006-2007 anime? It just seems like an odd matchup for the final pairing. Hell Nagi is the second or third best female character in her own show (my opinion) and Rika is probably the 2nd best in her show (also my opinion). Plus I would not rank Hayate or Higurashi high on my list of shows for this time line, as there were much better anime than these two shows.

    You know this tournament, it’s not really the popularity that counts. It’s been really been chaotic and unpredictable, hence we have two unlikely finalists.

    Of course, that’s your opinion that both shows aren’t on your “high” list. If you ask me, I really enjoy watching fans go at it as if their lives were at stake. ^_^

    What’s better? Lucky Star? lol no. Both are great shows. Though I agree I’d rather have anyone from HnG then Nagi. She’s not nearly even the best character on her own show, let alone deserves to be this far in the finals. Rika, I like… but I don’t think she stands out much in Higurashi (kai is more her show). Rena would have been better.

    This isn’t a popularity contest, although it does help. This is SaiMOE. And I believe Rika, with miii~ and ni-pa~ will win. Must win. Nagi’s got nothing on her.

    5 votes, okay that’s it, that’s it. Enough. As people have noted, 2008 Saimoe will feature perhaps the toughest competition to date. And it could be pretty epic if only they fixed the voting system. Until they do, enough for me

    You can so easily say that someone isn’t the best that could be there or that they aren’t the best in their show but it still comes down to the fact that no one cares.

    As for the voting system, I still don’t see a reason to complain about what went on this year. Far as I know, any problems that went on weren’t hard to avoid and it’s not like anyone personally went in and altered numbers or votes. So, is there really a necessity to complain? I’d really like someone to convince me otherwise.

    “Rika, I like… but I don’t think she stands out much in Higurashi (kai is more her show).”

    And which season of Higurashi was running during the tournament?

    Yes, I know that, technically, this tournament was not for the current season, but due to it running concurrently with the tournament it is going to have a high effect.

    And, quite honestly, Himatsubushi, Meakashi, and Tsumihoroboshi secured my love for Rika way back in the first season. And she’s powerful moe. Only Touka was more moe this tournament. Hell, only Touka is more moe period.

    It is not the voting system that is the problem, it is the whole faction politics/hate revenge/revenge vote that is the problem. Yes, the whole problem lies in people. If everyone were not that blinded by hatred of a show/studio or hunger for revenge, this saimoe would not have that bitter taste.

    Strawberry Panic Legion’s fate was sealed by Chikaru’s defeat in the hands of CC.

    Aria girls got shafted as usual.

    Nanoha took a heavy blow from Fate’s defeat.

    Lucky Star just could not escape from 2ch/4chan hate and revenge-thirsty HnGists.

    Higurashi characters has been used as tools for strategic votes and revenge votes as shown by Rena’s final defeat.


    Final thought, this saimoe is a pyrrhic victory for the anti-doll faction.
