Quarter Finals Round 1 Results
Louise De La Valliere (Zero No Tsukaima) VS Onjouji Toki (Saki)
ルイズ・フランソワーズ・ル・ブラン・ド・ラ・ヴァリエール (ゼロの使い魔F) VS 園城寺怜 (咲-Saki- 阿知賀編 episode of side-A)
1. Onjouji Toki (Saki) – 403 Votes
2. Louise De La Valliere (Zero No Tsukaima) – 252 Votes
Toki mows on which wasn’t too surprising since she had after all defeated Akari soundly previously and Louise being weaker stats wise and strength wise wasn’t really going to be able to win this. Fake votes were aplenty though with the graph showing Louise holding a lead over Toki right from the start of the battle but even with that Toki would still have won thanks to the trademark Saki rush. With yet another 60% under her belt Toki really seem to be the Saki Saimoe champion the series has been waiting for. At least with this win they are finally guaranteed a Saki finalist after performing so well in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
Quarter Finals Round 2 Preview
Haramura Nodoka (Saki) VS Miyanaga Saki (Saki)
原村和 (咲-Saki- 阿知賀編 episode of side-A) VS 宮永咲 (咲-Saki- 阿知賀編 episode of side-A)
Haramura will be bidding to be the first girl to reach Semis three times out of three times in her career in Saimoe. She have already sealed her place as one of Saimoe great by entering QF 3 out of 3 and will she be able to enter Semis 3 out of 3? If she does it will be one darn record that will stay for a long time. Saki on the other hand had a great great run this year after being denied several times in 2009 and 2010 despite being the titular character of such a dominant series. I predict her runs end at QF which is respectable considering she defeated Kobato and Amae to face Nodoka. Oh did I mention it’s a yurifest dream match between the two?
Nodoka should be able to take this since she has a better track record and all but Koromo’s loss proved Saki have the fan appeal too. Saki will let this match go for Nodoka to allow her bestie to seal that 3/3 record into Saimoe books.
My Pick: Haramura Nodoka
My Prediction: Haramura Nodoka
