    Kagami will win! Its like saimoe was rigged to make her win!

    While Hina has to go through… Japan’s no. 1 or Balsamic Vinegar.

    Tsukasa vs Fuko is gonna get bloody…

    Tsukasa will stomp this undead ghost back to the dead. Go Hinagiku!

    Damn ! Tomoyo and Kirino got screwed bigtime….. I love Hina and Kagami but was still hoping for the other 2 to make into the semis.

    Not a pleasant sight for me,a Nagisa fan…and generally, CLANNAD fan. Worst thing worst, all KyoAni semis are from Lucky Star only.

    Tsukasa, you must spray vinegar all over the starfish zombie. nao!

    It is almost certain this year will be either Lucky Star Twins or CLANNAD.

    Kagamin vs. Hina for the title I would guess.

    Feel bad for Kirino- terrible draw

    This may be fun yet.

    Is Fuko #1 in Japan? Or has she reached the level of hate from those she has defeated like Louise before her?

    We shall see.

    I don’t like Fuko now, she took down my precious Hanyuu…

    KyoAni-tards are sure having fun, huh?

    Maybe this is just what happens when there are no Rozen Maidens and their fanbase to ruffle the other fanbases up.

    Dammit, worst first round possible… my two favorites, Kagami and Tomoyo face off… I”m really voting for Tomoyo though…

    As for the other rounds though, Tamaki, Tsukasa, and Hinagiku are my choices.

  16. Clear Said,

    October 23, 2008 @ 10:51 am

    sadakups, we are better than desu-tards. =P

    Kagamin, Nagisa, Tsukasa and Hina will be my choices.

    yeah, a Grand Finale with the Hiiragi twins would be nice.

    I’ll wait until the semi-finals to express my opinion over the state of Kyo-Ani characters in this competition. So far, I admit it look like the sweet revenge.

    I’m willing to bet clannad’s wave right now is being pushed by after story…

    Like many others, I foresee (aka. “hope real badly”) a Kagami vs Hina final showdown… But a Hiiragi Oneesan-Imouto battle would be just as epic, but twice as ‘dramatic’ ^^

    A lot of coincidental similarities between the people who were matched up.
    Kagami and Tomoyo – 2 model student types
    Tamaki and Nagisa – the 2 shy girls who made friends via some type of club
    Tsukasa and Fuuko – the 2 not too bright ones…
    Kirino and Hinagiku – the 2 kendo club captains
