The Touhou, Shugo Chara, and ToraDora faction's strength is still yet unknown, thus it is not possible to make any predictions at this point. After 3 or 4 matches, we should see the big picture emerging. In the mean time, here are my vote plans
1. Furude Hanyuu over Shana : yes, I'm doing tactical vote for Akari, right off the bat.
2. Misaka Shiori over Misaka Mikoto : Tough call, but I think Shiori had more screen time.
3, Katsura Hinagiku over Kurata Sayuri : Sorry Sayuri, but there aren't many I would vote over Hinagiku
4. Nagato Yuki over Kawasumi Mai : Yuki is superior
5. Maria over Sakagami Tomoyo : Very, very tough call, but Sancta Maria will get my vote
6. Furude Rika over Asahina Mikuru : Coin toss
7. Kamio Misuzu over Kirisame Marisa : I just know Misuzu better
8. Hinamori Amu over Sanzennin Nagi : Nagi just isn't my type
9. Katagiri Yuuhi over Index : Yuuhi is a very underrated character. There is lot to be liked about her.
10. Suigintou over Tsukimiya Ayu : I recently read Rozen Maiden manga again.
11. Saber over Horo : My Shameless Tactical Vote #2.
12. Minase Nayuki over C.C. : C.C. just isn't my type
13. Evangeline McDowell over Ryugu Rena : I don't know, but I just don't feel like voting for Rena
14. Sunohara Mei over Suzumiya Haruhi : Haruhi isn't my type, neither.
15. Ryogi Shiki over Osaka : Shiki can be moe in her own ways
16. Alice Carroll over Shinku : another tough one. a coin toss, actually.
17. Shameimaru Aya over Hiiragi Tsukasa : shameless blatant tactical vote #3.
18. Mizunashi Akari over Kinomoto Sakura : My A.F.A.A. friends, 'There is NO Tomorrow!' Last year, 4 had perfect 9-0 records at the end of Aquamarine period and 9 had only one loss by the end of Aquamarine period. It is almost impossible to have less than 2 characters with 9 wins for the Aquamarine period, thus it will take a ISML destroying magnitude tactical voting to make Akari take the necklace with record of 8 wins and 1 loss, and I would rather have Akari go winless than to see that happening. If Akari is to win Aquamarine necklace, she has to start winning, Right Here. And Sorry Sakura. I will make sure to vote for you after this match.
19. Hiiragi Kagami over Louise : I like Kagami and don't like Louise
20. Yagami Hayate over Vita : I'm going with the master here.
21. Furukawa Nagisa over Sawatari Makoto : Nagisa's stock is on the rise. I still think Tomoya should find himself alone with Kyou since 5 years of mourning has past.
22. Chiba Kirino over Fate Testarossa : Golden Lion is a win
23. Kawazoe Tamaki over Anya Alstreim : Tactical vote be blasted, I like Tamaki, not Anya
24. Hakurei Remu edges Chii : I have to give Touhou faction something to not commit themselves against AFAA cause.
25. Izumi Konata over Yami : Konata just has more to be liked compared to Yami
26. Takamachi Nanoha over Remilia Scarlet : My consolation gift to Nanoha faction for voting against Fate
27. Kusieda Minori over Suiseiseki : In Moe circuits, Suiseiseki never fails to scare me, but she just isn't my type.
28. Nagi edges Kawashima Ami : Coin toss
29. Kouzuki Kallen over Illya : Kallen has huge edge on screen time.
30. Aisaka Taiga edges Tohsaka Rin : Coin Toss again.
31. Fujibayashi Kyou over Ibuki Fuko : I would choose the Thigh over Starfish every time.
32. Kotomi over Knowledge : String Theory for the Win!!
