I doubt their votes split since Mashiro is a Nova contestant, while Eu is a Stella contestant. Mikoto was an only competive Stella contestant in Emerald Necklace Match.
Do you mean in hindsight that there might be a Nova fraction who is trying to get the Necklace for the Nova girls? Otherwise i dont understand why in a Necklace round there should be no split between same Archetypes.

Sorry maybe i am just to sleepy right now (didnt sleep for like 35 hours) and i just cant comprehend right now.

You saw, Kanade smashed Mashiro by more than twice in spite of 3 HanaKanas crowd. If a contestant has the overwhelmingly highest SDO, votes tend to converge on her.

I know they were not even meant to be at the beginning but...well there is only one Tiara and that is most of the time already taken beforehand or at least the number of girls being able to obtain it is ridiculous small. At the beginning of this years ISML I only saw three (four) possibilites for winning the Tiara and those were Kuroneko (highest chance) Rikka and Mashiro. The fourth was repeat Kanade and i dont think that is completely to be dispatched yet.

So if the Tiara is most of the time not obtainable, of course that makes the necklaces way more interessting even if that wasnt the reason they got created.

I know there are already a lot of discussions and plans to change SDO as a whole but maybe the Necklaces in itself should be given more credit.

Well on the other hand this "randomness" kind of makes it fun as well. Because of that an even wider cast of characters can obtain a necklace. Even if it is sadly on cost of Mikoto as it seems this year. (I am excluding Kuroyukihime since...i still think that was rather an SDO then a schedule problem)
Schedule is determined prior to the start of Regular Season by means of Seeding Rounds during Preliminary Period so it cannot not accurately account for fluctuations in strength (eg. Ayase) etc. which influence how 'good' or 'bad' any given character's period schedule is.

One theory posited for the SDO manipulation etc is a shadow organization operating to win the Necklaces for Nova in face of Stella's obvious upperhand in terms of strength.

Shadow organizations~♥

Yeah but this is still Kanade we are talking about. The Queen of ISML if one may say so. Only other character with comparable achievments being Shana.
But i have to admit that you are right. A lot of people will ust jump the SDO train i guess


Thanks for the explanation @ Momokutenshi =D i thought the Staff had more of a say in the placing of the character Tiers. My mistake.

You really seem to like Shadow organizations ^^;
Well at least new faces as Real Necklace contestants.

Lol I forgot about that possibility. The number of picture vote for the exhibition match may be quite high in those cases >_<.
That or no one remember who is kanaria already. She hasn't appeared again in rozen maiden 2013 after all, and won't for a while.

Little sister over former friend and potential love interest? Sounds just a little strange to me.

Hina-chan did rather well, and considering the votes for Yuki, it looks like next round will be close too.
Masami beat Charlotte too, would have thought that would go the other way
