The first round of votes for groups C and D are now over; all in all, quite uneventful. As expected, Saki is gracefully making its way through the competition, taking some hits here and there as a proper second-year contestant should. Personally, I’m glad to see Mizuki (Baka Test) win her round, although she had to trample over Horo (Spice and Wolf) to do it…To Aru Kagaku no Railgun is surprisingly better than expected with Konori-sempai a secondary character, beating Sheryl (Macross Frontier), and of course Kuroko won her round. All in all, a mild and predictable performance.
The first round of Group E&F ended today with Yuki Nagato (The Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi) dominating her bracket. I’m assuming the movie was somehow good? As I write this, day 2 of Groups E&F are starting up, featuring Tenshi and Yui, both from Angel Beats. Both my picks for their respective groups.
Edit: Tenshi and Yui both won with record votes. It’s a good day!
