Congrats to Kanade for winning the necklace. Now with her and Mikoto out of the way, next necklace match may be really challenging.

Sure thing. I believe the Amethyst period will be a lot more exciting.

I'll be rooting for her as well^^ But I think it's unlikely that she wins this one since she got it last year...

And thus, we have an era for cardcaptors. Congratulations to Sakura and Tomoyo for winning their matches. I am very glad that there are people out there who remember the Da Capo series. Thank you for those who voted for Kotori-chan. I am glad that Fuuko won. It looks like Clannad is still strong even with coping with this group. And finally, though not surprising, Congratulations to Kanade for winning the Topaz necklace.

I'm dubious about it because the votes from Russia are always unpredictable.

If Yuki wins the Amethyst I'll be very happy.

I don't think there was any doubt Kanade would win Topaz. And her poster is really nice. :bigsmile:
Also congrats to Sakura for winning Topaz EX, and Tomoyo for winning her match. (Cute poster by the way, even if the image seems to be a bit out of focus.) I understand Ruri getting second since she sounds like is a kuudere. I even considered voting for her.

Congrats to Fuuko winning her match. And I have to wonder how many voters confused Kanata with Konata (visually or name-wise), or simply voted for her because she's from Lucky Star, lol. And I'm glad my hopes came true; Yuyuko was able to nab third place. :biggrin:

I don't know much about Kotori, but I did think her character design was nice. But I'm still sad Belldandy didn't place higher. And looking at the voting map, I'm a little surprised the US didn't vote more for Kagome. Inuyasha: Kanketsu-hen isn't that old. Of course, Adult Swim hasn't aired it yet (and a lot of IY fans are hoping they will).

Congrats to Kanade, but I still think it would be better if they would swap necklaces with Misaka.

Uh, maybe because Kanade's win is justified by actual voting too? Even if her SDO would be equal to Azusa, she would sill win by vote count. And by overall votes difference. And by overall votes for.

Expected and disappointing results. Only person I voted for that won was Fuuko-chan. <3

Russia again proves to have good taste.

I don't think so, since we're still considered not pure enough. However, japanator did have some ISML articles, so not all hope is lost.

Both of the periods so far were slanted in favor of a certain character winning, although if Azusa had beaten Mikoto then Kanade probably would've taken Aquamarine. There probably isn't a single contestant who can beat Kanade right now, which means she'll almost definitely have a 7-0 period every time. So SDO is always going to be the deciding factor in her necklace chances. She was pretty much guaranteed a necklace eventually. It's silly that people were complaining about the fact that she didn't get it in Aquamarine. Kanade faced the weakest girl from each tier in Aquamarine so it was natural for her to have low SDO for the period. In Topaz however, she faced all the stronger girls from each tier, which gave her a higher SDO than we've ever seen since periods became 7 rounds. Necklaces really aren't that important anyway so don't get upset when your character doesn't get one. Kanade's 1st seed, and she'll probably stay up there the whole season unless we start getting significant anti-voting (like if a certain faction decides to all team up against her. Although for Kanade it probably wouldn't even matter. It would take at least two factions) Which won't be until ruby sometime. Let it be known that I'm a Kanade fan =) And the poster looks awesome :D

I think the sunflowers really suit her, so it was lucky Kanade won Topaz.

Yeah, I'm late but congrats to Kanade for winning the Necklace in a dominating fashion. Also glad to see Sakura win.

Coming from a sports background though, I can't quite see the importance of necklaces. I've always felt that seasons are always failures when the team fails to win the championship. (Like the 2007 Patriots and Shana every year) Maybe I can't see the forest through the trees but I hope someone can tell me.
