Saimoe Tournament 2008 Quarterfinals 4

The results:-

1位 934票 桂ヒナギク@ハヤテのごとく! [Katsura Hinagiku @ Hayate the Combat Butler]
2位 750票 千葉紀梨乃@バンブーブレード [Chiba Kirino @ BAMBOO BLADE]

And Hinagiku takes the win from poor Kirino. I’m still impressed she got as far as the quarterfinals.

So now, the semis are all set up and we’re set for either a KyoAni or tsundere final.

Next up, Kagami takes on Nagisa. Go! Go! Kagami!

    it will probably be a tsundere-filled final.

    Ack, Nagisa’s set for a fall here. The Kagamin freight train is all but unstoppable at this point. Unless there’s a hat trick somewhere… But that’s unlikely.

    Time to say goodbye to the Dangos.

    Kagamin for the finals.

    I refuse to let Nagisa down. I’ll support her until the bitter end.

    This tournament has been the most interesting one for me. All the characters that I like have made it to the semi-finals. I don’t really care who wins.

    On a side note, Lucky Star and Clannad are both coming back to the tournament next year. I wonder what would happen then…

    Did the OVA for LS make the difference? The show wasn’t this strong last tourney.

    Glad to see there are still lots of Nagisa fans out there.

    the ultimate question is…

    between Tsukasa and Hina, which one has a better chance against Kagamin?

  15. irrelevance Said,

    Hina probably, Tsukasa doesn’t seem to have as much support as Kagami does.
    I wonder what Hinagiku’s fans would do if she loses to Tsukasa? Abandon Saimoe altogether? Voting for Kagami seems unlikely.

    And now for fanboy support: Go Nagisa, make another miracle for us. Dangos are invincible.

  16. Clear Said,

    October 29, 2008 @ 1:13 pm

    I agree.

    Is it just me or did Kagamin had too easy opponents this year? Who did she lose to back in 2007?

    But if Tsukasa does rip Hina a new one, Kagamin is most likely going to win. I would like a Hina-Kagamin finals tbh, it will be more of a better battle/victory if Kagamin freight train pulls through, for both of them.

    Kagami lost to Rena in 2007. (probably the highest or maybe second highest voter turnout match of the year with Fate vs Gin-sama (vs. Satoko) being the other very high count match).

    However Lucky Star’s run wasn’t over yet when that happened (Kagami had a moe episode shortly after her loss), but then Higurashi Kai was not over yet either.

  18. Beruchi Said,

    Wasn’t it Rena?

    Well I would like a Kagami – Tsukasa Final with Tsukasa as the winner^^

    Beruchi- Agree there, it would be kind of a sequel to the OVA too, lol.

  20. Sheba Said,

    Correction. Kagami lost to Rena + HnG fans + RM fans + Nanoha fans + Anonymous ;)

    !!! Nagisa Furukawa !!!

    If Tsukasa loses to Hinagiku, will the Tsukasa fans switch to Kagamin? Or maybe it doesn’t matter?
