A new champion for 2012

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Congratulations to our ISML 2012 champion, Tachibana Kanade! A perfect season with 0 losses results in the Heavenly Tiara for the Nova Division contestant. The match caps off another great year for ISML; thank you to all the voters for showing your support.

We are also recognizing Shirakiin Ririchiyo and Kuroyukihime for winning the seasonal exhibition tournaments for winter and spring. The summer and autumn brackets will be held during our exhibition tournaments one month from now. The main event is a male tournament much like last year’s.

So while the ISML postseason has concluded, there’s still more voting to come, starting on November 27. We’ll have more details released about the male tournament and seasonal exhibitions as we get closer to the date. Thank you again for voting.

The Last Match of ISML 2012

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

With our final match of the International Saimoe League 2012 rapidly approaching, we’d like to say a couple words beforehand! First of all, thank you so much to all our voters and those who contributed to making this a successful year! With that, we’d like to give a big thanks to Ichigo-Sora for making the beautiful promotional posters for our Elimination Period this year. They’ve been a stunning visual for everyone to see on the main page, so we’re very grateful for her contributions (as well for all the years prior)! It’s been a wonderful year and we’re hoping you all look forward to this Championship Match, as well as the Bonus Exhibition Tournament that’s to come!

And so… we wish both contestants the best of luck in the match for the Heavenly Tiara! Tachibana Kanade and Eucliwood Hellscythe… please give them all your support until the very end!

The Grand Finale is Near!

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

The Division Finals for the International Saimoe League of 2012 has concluded, and we’re now preparing for the Finals that will top off the last bits of our 2012—and it’s what everyone’s been waiting for! In preparation, however, we’ll be taking a short break until the 14th of October. In the meantime, you can take part in our Postseason Discussion on the ISML Forum, or campaign for your favorite finalists as they’ll need all the support they can get for these last few matches.

And in addition, we shouldn’t forget to congratulate our lovely Division Finals winners! Tachibana Kanade took a heavy lead over her opponents throughout the Division Finals and came out on top with the Sapphire Circlet declaring her the Nova Champion of 2012. Alongside her, stands Misaka Mikoto, who worked hard and stood above her opponents which ultimately led her to become the Stella Champion of 2012, awarding her with the Diamond Circlet.

As we’re finally reaching the conclusion of ISML 2012, the top eight from each division will face-off in Postseason II, where they’ll need all the support they can gather in order to obtain the coveted Heavenly Tiara.¬†Will your favorite ISML contestant muster up enough strength and support to stand out on top?

Vote maps corrected

There was an error with the generation of vote maps for this round’s results (Division Finals, Day 2), but it has now been corrected. The maps on the website currently are the correct ones; we apologize for the confusion.

Fan-submitted PV for Division Finals

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

The community page has an update with a postseason preview by Hachiko. On our main page, we are happy to feature a fanmade PV for the Division Finals by the members of Shimengba of Baidu. We think it’s well done. Our official PV is still in the making and should be ready by the time the Tiara bracket matches are under way.

Thanks to everyone for your support of ISML. Next week around this time, we will be crowning our first ever Division champions.
