Wait, is this SDO periodic or overall?
If overall then Kanade is sure to bring one home.
But if periodic with an insane schedule?
Thinking of a possibility that she faces 2 or 3 weaklings in each period...
All AB fans will get crazy.

Both, but they are used for similar but different things. Period SDO is used as a tiebreaker for entrance into the Necklace Showdown and for calculating the Necklace score to determine who wins the necklace for the period. As you would expected, Period SDO resets every period. Overall SDO takes into account all regular season matches. It's used as a tiebreaker to determine the Top 16 that advances into post season.

Kanade will get a necklace eventually. She had pretty horrible SDO this period and she nearly got the necklace anyways.
A miracle that you believe in when you know it won't happen......... is hope.

No cookies but Misaka won just as expected. Kanade, however will have a higher SDO because of law of averages assuming she wins all 7 matches then we'll talk come next round.

Kyuubey won. Which doesn't really matter for anything but is probably the match I cared about the most.

I wanted Kanade to win Aquamarine so I'm a bit disappointed. Not because I truly wanted her to win but because... I think Topaz fits Mikoto better xD
Anyway, I believe things could have been different if Mio had won against Shana in round 7. There's no use talking about what could have happened but at least then I'd have had someone to cheer for in this match. Either way, I happy with her strong performance in the necklace match.

Yay for the primary match? I really didn't care much about it personally.
Suprised that Ran managed to get second in her match though, didn't think she was that popular.
Hatsune is the next Hina-tan XD Managing to gain nearly 3x the votes of the 2nd place winner and more votes total than all the other condenders of her match combined and still have some room to spare.

It still remains a mystery for me how Misaka manages to get so many votes. In my rough ranking of the 50 characters, she's somewhere in the second half ^^'

She's like 3rd place in VF so it shouldn't be a surprise to you. Besides she fought better opponents than Kanade so I guess that should answer your question

I like her. I don't love her but if I were to rank the 50 characters by preference, she'd be around 20th I guess. She has a cool power and she's a tsundere that's not completely over the top which means she's less annoying - imo anyway. I have a harder trouble understanding how Shana manages to get so many votes but hey, that's because people have different tastes and it seems like the majority likes that type of characters. There isn't anything you or I can do about it.

The fact that she fought "better opponents" than Kanade and won explains her high SDO and is the reason she won the necklace. It doesn't explain why she scores all those votes. The question he was asking was more like: why is it, that even when faced with strong opponents, she manages to get so many votes?

Kanade brought us an impressive match. It's no wonder that she still dominates the Regular so far. However, a large margin victory couldn't bring Kanade the Aquamarine Necklace. The fact is she still not far enough ahead of Mikoto to break through the dilemma of trapping in the low SDO. I have to recognize that Mikoto's strength shouldn't be underestimated at all. Maybe Kanade will have a better schedule so that she can gain a higher SDO in the Topaz, and if it were exactly like that I believe no one can stop her to shoot the Topaz Necklace down. Anyway, the result is good to Mikoto and Mikoto's fans. Having missed the Aquamarine Necklace with a pity and waited for over one year, Mikoto is finally able to enjoy the happiness of holding the Necklace with the power of ocean in her palm as she wishes. Also congratulate to Mikoto, it's a nice fight and it's a nice Necklace picture. Maybe I shall suppose that Mikoto is the girl who is running closest behind our dominated Angel.

This SDO calculation is b-shit. Basically, it just means that no matter how many fans vote for Kanade and how big is her vote margin, she will lose because her opponents are 'weak'. She won her match against Misaka, and therefore is only character without losses this period.

That's completely untrue. 120 more votes was all Kanade needed to win the Aquamarine necklace. If her fans rallied a bit harder, she could have won the Aquamarine necklace despite her low SDO.

Erm, unless I'm misinterpreting something, Kanade nearly won despite her opponents being 'weak'.
If her total vote margin had been a little bit larger, she would have been the one wearing the necklace.

Edit: XD Three people pouncing on an incorrect statement.

Not exactly. The problem is that Kanade didn't win enough votes. She has already nearly beated Mikoto in the final necklace score. In fact, if Kanade received about 200 more votes, she will be able to get the Aquamarine Necklace. So the saying that "no matter how many votes she gets she will still have no chance to win the necklace is wrong.

Kanade will win one for sure, so you don't have to worry about that. All top girls will face weak opponents in certain periods. As TRE already pointed out, Kanade was very close winning her necklace even with very low SDO, so that really tells you she would win one without sweat if she is given a slightly better SDO schedule.

So? That's not how it works. She fought 6 opponents who are strong and lucky enough to be there.

Sure, technically she is 8 - 0 in Aquamarine and what? The necklace round was made so that Shana, Haruhi, Kagami, etc. won't be able to win more than one necklace in a year.
Last year the winner had to have a high SDO and on top of that, had to be 7 - 0 in order to have a clear shot at winning a necklace. The special round this year is generous enough for Kanade because any contestant who goes 7 - 0 gets an easy ticket to the 8th match regardless of SDO. She had a chance to win by the way.
Had the rules last year applied, she had no way of winning even if she plows through all her matches.

So don't go crazy on this.

^Exactly. This year's rules are made to give a chance to characters who get a low SDO. That actually minimizes the luck factor, not the other way around. She had a chance to win despite her low SDO.
