I'm surprise with Eu won more than Mikoto won, didn't expect Kuroneko to lose and miss necklace match.
And feel sad for Rikka, if she won her SDO will go sky-high, but at this rate I don't think she can achieve the necklace.

Anyway, I will go for Shana, to continue her dream on 7-color necklace collection. (also next year on Amethyst)

For everyone flipping out over Mikoto winning against Kanade, statistics could probably be disregarded because the rivalry in ISML between both characters' fans is real and by its very nature, very unpredictable.

With this win, Mikoto is now at 2-3 against Kanade in one vs. one ISML encounters. Most likely, her fanbase will continue to exact revenge in the postseason against Kanade in retaliation for Kanade's own revenge against Mikoto in the 2013 postseason (twice) in response to Kanade's loss to Mikoto in the 2013 regular season.

There's no point in hoping that either of these two characters (or rather their fanbases) will stay quiet as long as they are both in ISML.

Simple solution: Ban them both.

LOL.

I don't think there's a need for that. There is a tangible "no repeat Tiara winners" sentiment among many of the voters, so seeing sudden support in the postseason for Mashiro, Taiga, or Eucliwood wouldn't be far-fetched. In my opinion, Nova will have to seriously step it up to compete with them. Unless the DAL fanbase can get their act together, all three DAL leaders will be going nowhere as far as actual chances for the Tiara, leaving Nova's actual chances to Asuna, Kuroyukihime, or Rikka.

I feel like DAL and Asuna have real shots for the Tiara. Along with Mashiro and Eucliwood. Everyone else is out of it.

Was ready to rage-o-magic here when I saw Kobato lost to Inori (of all people), but seeing that Illyasviel won again almost...ALMOST...makes up for it.

Also...Yui..losing to Sora....that was unexpected.

And I'm starting to think most Ruri Gokou fans gave up... Though she was close to Eucliwood... Anyway, congratulations to the winners! And don't get down if your favourite characters lost... THERE IS STILL HOPE!!!

It's really hard to digest that Last Order won against Vicky. And why have the votes multiplied all of a sudden? It's not possible that 2000 more voters joined ISML is one day! In Round 6 all the votes are in 1000-2000 and in Round 7: 3000-4000!. I'm not buying this... really! Isn't there ANYONE who noticed this?!?!?! If you did, kindly let me know... I'm starting to think myself as a psycho now. :arrowed:
Last Order winning against Vicky did surprise me. I voted for LO just because I thought Vicky would won and a smaller VD for LO could make Shana's SDO higher, otherwise I would have voted for Vicky. Probably I'm not alone...sorry about that...

Whoa, Mikoto won? I honestly thought she'd lose this time. Looks like most Hanakana characters dropped the ball actually. What the heck happened over with Ruri and Eu? DAL gets more split votes but is this the first time there are only two of them there? And what in the world is up with the Final Fantasy Exhibition?

Proof that the change to the role of period SDO is working. Seriously, what the hell.

Kurousagi is my second favorite Nova newcomer, but she has absolutely no chance in the necklace match due to how low her SDO is compared to everyone else.
Kotori and Yoshino will both suffer from series vote splitting.
Mashiro and Eucliwood will possibly suffer from similar character archetype vote splitting.
Thus, Shana will walk away with the necklace....

Well, played Shana fans. Well played.

I think I may just abstain from the necklace match if I don't decide to just throw my vote away for Kurousagi.... UNLESS DAL fans can agree on which character to support before match day and all vote accordingly.

Edit: I am leaning toward voting for Yoshino over Kotori for the necklace, despite Kotori being stronger on paper.
Topaz is as good as Shana's. I should've known ever since she defeated Kuroneko. I suppose the dream for her to have the complete set of jewellery has not died out.

DAL...ugh. I don't even know anymore. No one agrees with anything. I think Kotori and Yoshino's chances in this NM are roughly the same. Which really does not bode well.

Kotori sure cut it close this round. Vote increase doesn't seem to be favouring any of the DAL girls. At this rate, Nova Circlet belongs to Asuna.
yep, the dream is still there.

Don't know any of the character in Exhibition 2, some of them it doesn't look like anime art, is it visual novel exhibition? Anyway I think I'll go with Retia Adolf since I saw the picture for that avatar around here somewhere.

Oh~ Nomizu Iori is the now the 4th Seiyuu with 2 character into the Necklace round at the same time.

Whooo yeah go Asuna!
So, Kanade's loss here might make her 'come down to earth' if Kuroneko hasn't splunked spectacularly. Kuroneko takes two losses in this period, just like Kanade in 2013 Topaz :3

*waits for DAL fans to come and tell us how today's results mean that only DAL can prevent a repeat tiara*

Actually maybe the most surprising thing for the necklace would be for DAL to win because nobody is expecting it at all.

I like this results. :biggrin:
Yoshino over Kuroyukihime
Kotori over Rikka (that was close)
Eu over Goku Ruri
Mikoto over Kanade

Kurumi vs Asuna - I expected this result. This was just too perfect opportunity to anti-vote Kurumi. Asuna had a necklace, Kurumi hadn't. Kurumi had big SDO before match and after Kuroneko lose she had the biggest chance to obtain a necklace. That made her dangerous for other competitors. Simple.

Necklace match will be interesting. The biggest chance to obtain it have Shana and Mashiro. But before Topaz period started, the biggest chance had Kurumi and Kuroneko.
Where they now? :lol:
Everything can happen.
