Welcome to Regular Season!

Saturday, May 4th, 2013

While Aquamarine Period has ended, our Contestants still have a long battle ahead of them. With the conclusion of the first period in Regular Season, we’d like to congratulate Tachibana Kanade for her outstanding efforts in the League’s first set of matches! Despite the fact that the fight for the Aquamarine Necklace was very fierce, she managed to defend the Aquamarine Necklace and claim it two years in a row. We’d also like to acknowledge Aragaki Ayase, who, in a close exhibition match, won the Aquamarine Bracelet! Both Contestants this period worked hard with your support and managed to stand on top, but they both still have a long way to go as we head deeper into Regular Season.

And with that, we’ll be taking a short break as we prepare for Amethyst Period, resuming on May 14th. As you’re waiting to support your favorite girls for Amethyst, feel free to visit our forums and discuss with other fellow voters about the season so far! Thanks so much for a successful Aquamarine Period this year, and we hope you continue to support your favorites until the very end!

And Folks… Regular Season is Over!

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

First of all, a big congratulations to the winner of the Topaz Necklace. She made the push she needed at the end in order to win above the others and managed to grab hold of that Necklace, so congratulations to Akiyama Mio! In addition, we’d like to congratulate Yuzuriha Inori who won the Topaz Earrings, as she took the victory in her exhibition inter-division matchup! We’ve had a wonderful run with Topaz Period and that’s all thanks to those who visit and vote every day and make this a successful tournament.  And as the curtains fall on Regular Season, we’d like to thank you all for these past five months in voting and giving your favorite contestants your utmost support.

But even though Regular Season is over, there’s no need to fret yet! The fun’s just getting started—we’re preparing for Postseason which will decide the champion for the two Divisions, and the top eight of each Division will move on to the second phase, where they will compete for the 2012 Heavenly Tiara.

We’ll be ready for the final event of the year on September 30th. Good luck to all our wonderful contestants, and to you, our voters: Are you prepared to support your favorite girls to the very end?

Finished with Emerald Period!

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

A belated post regarding Emerald Period’s completion, which has finished smoothly, but we’re left with only a single period before our Regular Season ends. And with that, we’d like to congratulate Eucliwood Hellscythe, who managed to stay on top and worked hard to obtain the Emerald Necklace, and to Kasugano Sora for her successful victory in her exhibition inter-division matchup that has earned her the Emerald Anklet!

In regards to the change this year, we’ve replaced the Emerald Ring with the Anklet which originally belonged to the Diamond Period as both Diamond and Sapphire have been removed from our Regular Season. If there’s any confusion about this, feel free to leave a comment or post in our IRC channel (or Forums) and we’ll do our best to clear things up.

Thank you everyone for your continual support, and let’s hope for a successful Topaz Period!

Ruby Period has ended!

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

With the completion of Ruby Period, we’re more than half-way through Regular Season and there’s only Emerald and Topaz left to go! And of course, we’d like to congratulate the winners of the Ruby Necklace and the Ruby Medallion. Misaka Mikoto worked hard throughout Ruby to stay on top and that paid off with her successful grasp of the Ruby Necklace. And in addition, C.C. was awarded with the Ruby Medallion for her victory in the exhibition inter-division matchup. Congratulations to these two wonderful contestants for their hard work towards a successful victory.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to vote and support your favorite contestants, and we’ll hope you’ll join us in the Forums if you haven’t registered already!

We hope to continue seeing your support when it comes time for Emerald Period!

Amethyst Period is Completed!

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

To think that half the year is over and with that, 2012 Amethyst is also over. It was a close match between the 7 wonderful contestants who worked hard this Period for the necklace, but the one who was able to come out on top in the end was Gokō Ruri. Congratulations to Gokō Ruri for obtaining the Amethyst Necklace! In addition, Ikaros has won the Amethyst Brooch from the exhibition inter-division matchup! A big applause for these two lovely ladies who persevered throughout their matches, thanks to your support.

We’re grateful to all of you voters out there who are gathering support for your favorite contestants, and spreading the word in order to make this a great year for everyone! While we’re preparing for Ruby, why don’t you take a look at the Forums and discuss results with others?

Thank you, everyone! We hope you’re all as excited for Ruby as we are! Take care until then!

Diamond Period concluded

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Congratulations to Eucliwood for winning the 2011 Diamond Necklace! Despite a 5-2 record, she had a competitive SDO rating; winning the round certainly made it look easy, but Eu has fought hard since her close loss to Nagato Yuki in the Amethyst Showdown. She now gets to take home a Diamond Necklace as a reward.

We are done with the Regular Season! It has been very exciting these past seven Periods; we hope you enjoyed them, too. Preparations for the Postseason are next. We’ll take a few weeks to prepare some new avatars and set up exhibition matches to accompany our Top 16 Contestants. This break period is also an opportunity for me to fix these server issues once and for all. The rush of visits right as results came out tonight knocked us out for a few minutes, but no worries.

The first match is scheduled for Sunday, 30 October. I’ll update again when we have a match preview ready.

Our exhibition winner this Period is Kaname Madoka, who wins the Diamond Anklet. Congratulations! A final exhibition match 7-way with all of the winners this season is planned; more details to come later on.

Thank you for voting and supporting ISML! The donations page will reopen once the postseason starts, as the time to renew our hosting services is coming this month.

We have big plans for ISML 2012 as well. If you visit our Forums, you’ve had sneak peeks at our proposed ideas. A formal charter is expected by mid-December. The staff is working hard to keep ISML fresh but also fair each passing year; we appreciate all of your feedback as well!

Ruby concluded

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

Congratulations to Shana for winning the 2011 Ruby Necklace! Voter support helped her overcome both the one loss from earlier in the Period and the resulting deficit in SDO. It shows that anything is still possible despite the challenges. To some fans, this particular win comes after very long wait.

Only Diamond Period remains in the Regular Season. One more Necklace is left to claim, and we’ve had many deserving candidates in all of our Necklace Showdowns so far. Who will end up on top? And if you notice the statistics, we still have two undefeateds in the overall standings. Kanade and Mikoto will meet very soon, and it’s a match you don’t want to miss in the upcoming weeks.

Nine Contestants have clinched the Postseason, and we draw closer to knowing all of our Top 16 with each passing Round. Those on the bubble (not yet highlighted in red) still have a chance to battle for a spot. We wish all of our girls the best of luck!

We are on break again until next Sunday, the 18th. Match previews will be available soon.

Our exhibition winner this Period is Illyasviel von Einzbern, who wins the Ruby Medallion. Congratulations! Illya just missed the Regular Season this year after two winning seasons in 2009 and 2010. We’re happy to see her still competing well.

Thank you for voting! We’ll see you next week!

Emerald Concluded

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Congratulations to Aisaka Taiga for winning the 2011 Emerald Necklace! The Regular Season is starting to wind down, and time is running out to secure a spot in the Top 16 for the Postseason. On our overall rankings table, those Contestants highlighted in red unfortunately have missed the opportunity this year; however, we still wish the best of luck for them in securing wins in the remaining 14 rounds. At this point, nobody at the top of the list is locked into the Top 16, though it is estimated to happen around Ruby 4.

Voting for Ruby Period, Round 1 will begin on Tuesday, August 23. Match previews will be available on Sunday. Two Necklaces remain as the competition gets more fierce.

Our exhibition winner this Period is Remilia Scarlet, who wins the Emerald Ring. Congratulations! Ruby and Diamond Period exhibitions will feature new faces in all Rounds.

Thank you for voting!

A new Sapphire Period champion

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

Congratulations to Gokō Ruri for winning the 2011 Sapphire Necklace! Like in Amethyst, we had another close match with very exciting results. Thanks to our creative staff as always for designing our posters on such short notice after results are fully tallied.

We’re past halfway in the Regular Season, and three Necklaces remain before the final tournament for the Heavenly Tiara. With the conclusion of Sapphire Period, we take a short break until Emerald Period on Sunday, July 31. Match previews will be available by the end of this coming week.

Our exhibition winner this Period is Shiomiya Shiori, who wins the Sapphire Amulet. Congratulations! And the voting results were very nice for our other exhibition arenas as well; we hope you’ve been enjoying the themed groupings.

Thank you again for all your votes and support for ISML.

Amethyst Concluded

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Congratulations to Nagato Yuki for winning the 2011 Amethyst Necklace! She joins Shana as the second Contestant to defend a Necklace after winning it the previous year. It was a close battle between her and Eucliwood, but there can be only one victor in the end. Best of luck to Eu and all of our other Contestants in the matches to come! There are many Necklaces remaining, and the coveted Heavenly Tiara is also still out there for the taking. Amethyst Period is concluded, and we have a short break until Sapphire Period on Wednesday, July 5. Previews for the first round can be expected by the end of the coming weekend.

Our exhibition winner this Period is Kagura from Gintama, who wins the Amethyst Brooch. Congratulations!

Thank you for all your votes, support, and donations. We are nearing the halfway point of the Regular Season, and things couldn’t be more exciting.
