ISML Day 7, Seeding Results

So the results for the seeding match are out, and some of the results are downright surprising….but oh so delighted so see them like this.

Bracket A

Katsura Hinagiku
(Hayate no Gotoku!)
Misaka Mikoto
(To Aru Majutsu no Index)
Izumi Konata
(Lucky ☆ Star)
Tōsaka Rin
(Fate/stay night)
Sakurano Kurimu
(Seitokai no Ichizon)
Asahina Mikuru
(Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu)

As expected of the reigning champion, she had no troubles getting top place. The big news here is Misaka Mikoto though, compared to last year…her new Railgun series has truly turned her into a fearsome competitor and a true powerhouse beating some previous top 16 candidates. I cant wait to see how she does in the future. Sakurano Kurimu on the other hand had her first taste at top class competition, if she is to perform like she did in the prelims she will have to up her game even more.

Bracket B

(Shakugan no Shana)
Suzumiya Haruhi
(Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu)
Shiina Mafuyu
(Seitokai no Ichizon)
Hirasawa Yui
(Spice and Wolf)
Saten Ruiko
(To Aru Kagaku no Railgun)

If there is someone I can always count on and I can be fully confident in her abilities to deliver a safe victory, is my unrivaled favourite Shana, and it seems her old habit of always getting the highest vote number is still in effect…granting her the #1 seed. Haruhi managed 2nd in the group but her numbers where a little low…is this still the fault of E8? Well the movie should fix this…And then comes my biggest surprise, Shiina freaking Mafuyu managed to outvote Hirasawa Yui from moeblob sensation K-ON, this is for me one of the most impressive victories and has really givenme the confidence that Mafuyu has the firepower to play with these girls, and maybe with a stroke of luck, she could aim for top 16.

Bracket C

Sakagami Tomoyo
Hiiragi Kagami
(Lucky ☆ Star)
Sanzen’in Nagi
(Hayate no Gotoku!)
Sengoku Nadeko
Kawashima Ami
Fukuji Mihoko

Meh…It seems Tomoyo STILL doesnt want to step back either, she captures first and Kagami second. Nagi who looked dominant on prelims is suddenly reminded that against the big leagues she can still fall short by a hairline.

Bracket D

Akiyama Mio
Aisaka Taiga
Nagato Yuki
(Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu)
Furude Rika
(Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
Sunohara Mei
Haramura Nodoka

Im surprised, I claimed Mio would aim for top 10 this year, but this….this is more than I ever expected. Mio just managed to beat both Taiga and Nagato Yuki. All of the gathering over 2000 votes, but Mio still managed to get ahead. While I see Taiga remaining strong I dont think she will do as well as last time, and for those who like Nagato, pray that the Haruhi movie DVD/BD comes out before ISML 2010 ends, because if it does….I will say this now, and I will give it my seal of guarantee (even though its a shitty seal); Nagato will win ISML 2010 Tiara if the timing is right.

Bracket E

(Fate/stay night)
Nakano Azusa
Fujibayashi Kyō
Fate Testarossa
(Mahō Shōjo Lyrical Nanoha)
Shiina Minatsu
(Seitokai no Ichizon)
Okazaki Ushio

A surprising victory of Saber, I was not expecting this actually…since I thought Kyou would pull through, but it seems she fell short even after Asuza, what happened to her being top 5?  Fate on the other hand seems to be in the same situation as Nanoha, for both of them (but this also applies for Saber) if their movies come out before ISML ends we can see a big shift in strength (although FSN movie will help Rin more than Saber). Oh yeah poor Minatsu…welcome to ISML
