pasting my post on facebook on necklace matches and SDO

aquamarine: Kanade (1st in VF), Taiga (4th in VF), Mikoto (2nd in VF)
amethyst: Kuroneko (3rd in VF), Taiga (6th in VF), Shana (1st in VF)
ruby: Mikoto (1st in VF), Azu-nyan (2nd in VF), Taiga (3rd in VF)
emerald: Euu(1st in VF), Mio (4th in VF), Azu-nyan (5th in VF)
topaz: Mio (2nd in VF), Shana (1st in VF), Yui (4th in VF)

kanade won by a landslide- no SDO advantage could had prevented her from winning

kuroneko- closest of all necklace matches. SDO helped her win- but wasnt significant. Taiga winning with the 6th highest VF would had been rage worthy (she only needed 4 more votes to pass kuroneko)

ruby: highest VF and SDO, nothing would had stopped her

emerald: SDO did not impact winner. But both mio and azusa climbed up higher than they should had thanks to SDO

topaz: SDO gave the edge to mio, but their VF were close to each other, cannot argue that equation is flawed based on this particular match up

Koneko winning her match
Minori placing right in the center of hers
_-_ Subaru placing last in hers
Eep, SAO pair nearly tripled Saber, looks like Asuna's going to have plenty of strength next year

I'm glad Mio won but the rest of the results are garbage.

Heartbreaking for me that Kurisu ended up 17th, but at least Tomoyo managed to hang on.

Good job Mio!

Nicely done Mio. Managed to get closer to Shana in votes than I expected.
A big win for Kirito/Asuna, though there were a number of factors working in their favour for this match (the timing of the match, and also the Kiritsugu/Saber pairing isn't ideal given how they treat each other in F/0). I guess we'll get a somewhat better idea of what this win means when we see Kiritsugu and Kirito in the male exhibition tournament (assuming they're both in it).

I'll finish out the season first. Maybe Kanade will win this year and end the season on a good note since I don't trust my other favorites (Three of whom have already won a tiara).

Haha, wow, I really didn't expect this... Poor Shana! I almost feel bad for voting for Mio now... But Mio deserves another necklace, too, so I can't really regret it! And the poster is really pretty, too!

Welp, Secchan and Konochan lost, but I expected that... And Koneko is pretty damn adorable, so. I did at least think Mami wouldn't do too badly, though... :tearsad: Oh, well.

Congrats on Inori winning the Exhibition! And wow, that poster is just gorgeous! <3

Now on to the post-season...! I am not prepared, I'm sure! =)

I'm actually shocked Shana didn't win. I got to thinking she had this in the bag. Huh I guess not.

I know Shana has the most amount of necklaces but still, I wanted Shana to win at least a necklace this year..
Oh well, I'm just hoping now that her fanbase will continue to remain strong so she won't be forgotten!

The only nice result for me is Ayase winning her exhibition.
Since every times Inori won a match, I was asking myself exactly the same as akumaxx above
Cannot understand why Inori.
Imo the only nice character and hence the only one worth voting for in ISML in the whole Gulty Crown show is Ayase, and definitely NOT Inori. I still don't understand what others find in Inori, but at least Ayase got a victory on her side, that's nice.

The necklace match's result is... okay, I guess. Truthfully, I didn't really care about this one. I ended up voting for Nagato because I probably like her a little more than Mio or Shana, but Mio isn't that far behind and Shana isn't far behind Mio either. None of them are among my favorites though, so congratz to Mio but... I couldn't care less.

Other exhibition are... Wow, it's bad. Okay Nagato is winning her Ex match but this one was quite obvious from the start + I voted for Minorin anyway.
In others matchs, most of those who I voted for finished last or second to last. Predictable, but still bad.
Very surprised at the amount by which the SAO couple won over saber + Kiritsugu. Okay, I only watched 4 episode of this show until now, but Asuna didn't strike me as anything great. + This show is definitely a bad adaptation of its LN anyway, so maybe she's good in the LN, but a I highly doubt that people who voted for her read the LN. At least no more than 0.5% of the voters... Well, I'll finish this show and will probably read the LN someday, I'll see...

Just a reminder that if you only watched 4 episodes of SAO then Asuna is just a minor character. And yes, it's a bad adaptation of the LN so far. Try to watch more with an open mind instead of watching "just to see how much it really sucks"...predetermined judgement is not cool.
