YES! Mashiro won! Not only the necklace, but also the necklace match vote! Truly, truly deserved win.

Demon Eri with the 666.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! Kurisu wins the Topaz jewellry. Truly deserved. Almost even moreso than Mashiro. She was cheated out of a Postseason spot by getting 17th for the first win in a row, and she finally manages to beat Mikan in a best of 7 vote.

(NOW WHERE'S THE MINOR JEWELLRY POSTER FOR KURISU!)

Well, nice poster as always. It might have been close, but no one seemed to know that. Mashiro ran away with it, as expected.

I was hoping Shizuku would win, but she still did fairly well. The other exhibitions were great. Kurisu's poster is awesome :bigsmile:

Maybe I should have done more of the results trivia all year lol. Or maybe I just got lucky.

I agree, she deserved for this win.
Now in the Post Season, the match will become unpredictable. In Nova, we have strong newcomer. Shiina Mashiro, Takanashi Rikka, Yuki Asuna, become our focus right now. Don't forget about another people in Nova like Kuroyukihime, Hasegawa Kobato, Kashiwazaki Sena, Aoyama Nanami who can make huge suprise in next match.

Holy crap. Kurisu's poster is amazing. Amazing render, great everything. I daresay it's even better than Mashiro's picture. Really amazing job.

Sigh. Stella was split like hell while all of Nova went Mashiro. Guess we see the gap between Kanade and Kuroneko and the rest of the group.

But again, it was a bit of a stretch trying to recover from a 40 SDO disadvantage while also having to deal with Eu, who Misaka lost to way back when. Taiga didn't help anybody.

Congrats to Shiina Mashiro on winning the Topaz Necklace! She follows up her large SDO advantage with a big first place win in the necklace showdown. It's also a good showing by Misaka here. However, while winning the necklace was nearly impossible, I can't help but be a bit disappointed she didn't at least take first place in the poll. While necklaces are nice, the fight for the circlets start soon with the real top prize apporaching soon after. I hope everyone is ready.

A good showing by Rias here. I had her in the running for first place and she managed to do it with ease. I have't seen the new DxD season yet, so I'm not sure if it's the reason Rias did so well.

Ryou and Tsukasa have seen better days. Their time is long over, though. Also perhaps due to have new anime content, Elsie takes the next group pretty easily. While Rikka and Shinka look good, I guess Dekomori isn't ever going to bounce back to the strength she had in early preliminaires that left her just before qualification.

Tough race and Victorique came close but Kurisu prevails in the end. Mostly expected results in this match.
A miracle that you believe in when you know it won't happen......... is hope.

Good:
- Rias winning her group exhibition match.
Couldn't resistShow
- Yui winning her singles exhibition match.

Bad:
- Charlotte (or Mikan) not winning the Miscellaneous Topaz Jewelry.
- Sanae only getting third in her group exhibition match.

News from BoBAShow
ISML 2013: Mashiro cruises to Topaz
Shiina easily wins Necklace match, Kurisu Makise wins Earrings

By JR Salazar
The Bedlam on Baltic Avenue
August 23, 2013


At Suimei Academy of the Arts, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were singing the theme song of Mashiro Shiina's ISML campaign, "Can't Hold Us" prior to the ISML annoucement, scheduled for 1 p.m. Japan Standard Time. Shiina's supporters were waving campaign flags, dressed in the colors of Suimei. The fans were bouncing up and down to the theme song, energized.

"She can't be denied this time!" said a devoted Shiina fan in her 30's, dressed like a mochi ball. "She will win! Mashiro to win!"

"It's her time. Nothing can stop her now," said another fan, a woman in her 60's using a walker. "The young lady will win the Topaz and make everyone here proud. This is it!"

"We think she is going to crush Mikoto today," said another fan, a female student from Suimei cosplaying as Reimu Hakurei. The fan, apparently, was Nanami Aoyama, Mashiro's No. 1 confidante. "I expect it. This will be a formality."

Indeed, the announcement was made. Shiina won 3118 votes, or 27.92% of the vote, to earn a score calculation of 65.382. Not only did she dominate the Necklace Match, her SDO was too much for the competition to handle.

"Finally!" Mashiro exclaimed, to the roar of the crowd, tears coming out of her eyes. "How about that, everybody! You know, this means a lot to me, to finally win my first ISML necklace, and finish the regular season without a defeat...this is truly a dream come true and I don't want this to end.

"I want to thank my significant other, the love of my life, Sorata Kanda, for standing up for me and supporting me all year and being there for me since I first laid my eyes on him and fell in love with him. I want to thank my good friend Nanami Aoyama for believing in me and all of us and being someone I can also rely on.

"I want to thank Ryuunosuke Akasaka, Misaki Kamigusa, Rita Ainswork, Jin Mitaka and Chihiro Sengoku for their efforts in helping both of our campaigns, both mine's and Nanami's. And I finally want to salute you, the voters, for being our rock all season. Neither of us could have made it to the postseason without you. Give yourselves a hand.

"Now that the regular season is over, I look forward to your support of us during this International Saimoe League postseason. Wish us well and don't forget to vote for us. We love you, we couldn't make it this far without you, and we're only getting started! Thank you, everybody!"

"We were in a no-win situation," said Misaka, who had 2511 votes (22.49%) for a necklace score calculation of 44.104. "But, that's the way things go nowadays. Hopefully I can do better in the postseason. I will also focus on putting on a strong showing in Japan."

Eucliwood Hellscythe won 1930 votes (17.28%) for a necklace score calculation of 48.603. "I don't think Mashiro was going to be denied her necklace," said Hellscythe through interpreter Ayumu Aikawa at her press conference. "We will take this on the chin and prepare for the Division Finals."

Taiga Aisaka earned 1560 votes (13.97%) for a score calculation of 41.684. "I've won the Topaz before so it's nice to see someone else win it," Aisaka said. "I gave it my best effort, but the best of the new faces are getting the job done, and Mashiro is one tough cookie to crumble."

Kuroyukihime earned 789 votes (7.07%) for a necklace score calculation of 23.964. "This is coming off the heels of being consigned to the repechage by Fate Testarossa in 2channel AST," said Hime at her press conference in Tokyo. "This definitely was not a good day for me. One of the lowest days for me personally because my assumption was that Testarossa's time had passed. I will hope to rebound in the Division Finals, but I cannot be happy with how I performed in my two contests today."

Kirino Kousaka had 652 votes (5.84%) for a score calculation of 30.040. "Being in these necklace matches is kind of unnecessary for me because I know that I don't have the pedigree to put up much of a fight," Kousaka said at her press conference. "I kind of expected this result because this was really all about Mashiro winning something. No one else in this period mattered other than her."

Kobato Hasegawa won 607 votes (5.44%) for a score calculation of 27.260. "It's nice to be in this thing, but only if the voters think I deserve to win something," Hasegawa said. "I think this is going to be another average year for me, and I have high standards. So, I'm kinda unhappy that they decided that this was going to be about that nobody from Sakurasou. This was gifted to her by the voters. They put a ribbon on it too, as well as some cash. She's supposed to earn a necklace, not buy it. Some opponent Mashiro is."

Kurisu Makise ends her ISML run with the Topaz earrings, earning 1883 votes. Victorique de Blois was second with 1732 votes, Mikan Yuuki was third with 1607 votes, Shinobu Oshino was fourth with 1498 votes, Charlotte Dunois was fifth with 1472 votes, Rin Tosaka was sixth with 1307 votes and Rin Natsume was last with 1289 votes.

"I'm happy with how my season ended," Makise said at her press conference in Tokyo. "I may not have finished in the Top 16 of the Nova, but to know that I ended my run on a winning note means that I have some confidence and hope for future seasons, if I survive Preliminaries. I thank Buntarou, Mayuri, Suzuha, Faris, Daru and all who voted for me. This season wasn't the best, but it wasn't the worst, and I can live with that."

Four other exhibitions took place. Rias Gremory won the first of two non-title group exhibitions with 2571 votes. Akiko Himenokouji earned 2226 votes, Shizuku Mizutani was third with 1937 votes, Tsuruya was fourth with 1172 votes, Evangeline A.K. McDowell was fifth with 1074 votes, Eri Sawachika was sixth with 666 votes—a strange occurence at that—and Kiri Komori was last with 504 votes.

Elucia De Lute Ima won the second non-title group exhibition with 2240 votes. Anna Kushina was second with 1872 votes, Sanae Dekomori was third with 1739 votes, Himeko Inaba was fourth with 1381 votes, Ritsu Tainaka and Ryou Fujibayashi were tied for fifth with 1325 votes and Tsukasa Hiiragi held up the rear with 982 votes.

Wrapping up Topaz action...Helmond Totooria prevailed over Milia Maxwell 3747-3614 and Yui Goidou routed Kenjirou Hato 5074-2838.

That takes care of the regular season in the 2013 International Saimoe League. Match Day 1 of the ISML Division Finals is scheduled for September 8, 2013.

The following quotes taken from this post.
Kordosa wrote:I'll simply point out that if a sizable portion of the voterbase can't decide on someone—anyone—to rally behind to challenge the Mashiro/Nova/[insert relevant faction here] faction(s), Mashiro WILL win the necklace without a fight due to split votes.
Hey look! Split votes.
Kordosa wrote:Mikoto fans, if you want Mikoto to have a realistic chance at winning the necklace, I would suggest you start campaigning like hell over the next two days using Facebook, Twitter, AnimeSuki, etc., to do so. If the Baidu community can spur enough votes for one match to topple Kanade, there's no reason why the western fandom can't do the same. Tacit acceptance of the current situation instead of actively trying to garner more support will change nothing.
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained."
This could have been feasible, and yet it seems the western fandom is nowhere near as enthusiastic as the eastern fandom.
Well, good for Mashiro regardless. It's not a previous necklace holder so I'm actually fine with this.

And congrats to Kurisu for winning Topaz Exhibition. Victorique was still my top choice, though.
