Fate can win her last three matches (vs. Hanyu, Ui, and Konata) and has SDO advantage(1386-1380-1356), while Hitagi and Rin has a back to back match in D7.
BTW, Nagisa, you did well. (*Sob*)

We have double elimination to figure how strong future Azusa will be against future Mio.

Disappointed in Nanohas loss - was the only one I didn't really really expect.

Expected a crushing Miku win.

I doubt Azusa can win a direct match with Mio. She looked to be as strong or stronger than Mio for their previous match and Mio still won with some room to spare. She'll need someone else to knock of Mio if she wants to make a run at winning the Tiara.

Somehow oo-yeah on seeing Yami beating an upper ladder rival.
But this will never happen on Sakis...
Shall I believe that they will gain an auto slot for 2011?

In terms of RAW strength im also starting to believe now that it currently goes:

- Shana/Mio
- Azusa
- Hinagiku
- Yuki
- Taiga
- Mikoto

Azusa's performances are pretty similar to Mio's I guess the fact that they are both very similar characters makes them share the same fanbase, however Azusa vs Mio will never result in an Azusa victory tbh. The strength of Azusa will be one to be feared on D.E as long as she stays away from Mio, not even Shana could beat Azusa right now if people were to decide to use her as a tool to knock her off.
Best case scenario for K-ON is to push both Mio and Azusa to the finals, Mio will be almost guaranteed the Tiara.

And if Mio loses along the way, Azusa has a good chance I believe.

Yami win by 2 votes over Nanoha :(
I honestly thought Nanoha couldn't go any lower. This is probably her last season, although it's hard to say for sure. She may not be my favorite, but she'll be missed nonetheless.

You're pessimistic about Shana all the time...except this time when it counts. Mio is currently distinctively stronger than Shana.

Shana needs to be kept stronger than Azusa at all cost if we don't want a predictable final. If Azusa is the second strongest, then a Mio vs. Azusa final will be a Mio winner.

Azusa finally won against a top 6 character, maybe for the first and the last time in this regular season.
There's no saying that Azusa cannot win the tiara, regarding what Hina could pull off in DE last year. Someday she might be able to even beat Mio.

I'll have to disagree with that. I think both of you are still underestimating Shana or overestimating Mio. I'd say Shana is clearly in first and there's a small but noticible gap between her and second place. I can probably see why someone would say Mio is as strong as Shana but I don't see what Mio has done that could make her look stronger than Shana. Well I guess if you take the Mio vs Azusa result at face value you can make Mio look stronger than Shana but that's not really a good match to use to determine how strong Mio and Azusa are.

Bad results Yuki loses to Azusa and Nanoha loses by 2 votes. Others weren't unexpected but Kyonko should have but up a better fight.

I don't know about Azusa becoming more powerful than Mio here in ISML, but when I watched Asuza debut in K-ON!, my first impression was that she would challenge Mio in popularity. But again, I still haven't watched the second season, so I don't really know who's the most popular character right now. Though I'm guessing Gita had a fanservice episode and received an unexpected popularity boost.

Yami winning by two votes... Are you kidding me?! Great, more SDO points for Shana's bid for the Diamond necklace, not that she would need it, and ignoring the fact that I'm being hypocritical since I've still been voting for Kotomi this period. >_<

Great, more salt on the wound is just what I needed... Just when I was hoping this might be Yami's last year in ISML, you tell me that more of that garbage is going to be animated. I find out that a series I didn't particularly like, is getting a follow-up... *facepalm*

Well, on to the other results...

Good attempts by both Hitagi and Yui in their matches.
And Minatsu winning was nice, but Ruiko losing was not.
And I'm not all that surprised by the exhibition results. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure there are more Miku videos than Kyonko videos on YouTube....

Mio is healing, sure. But she fell a long way and is still in the middle of catching back up to Shana. Shana looks as strong as ever to me, though.

Edit: My thoughts on Diamond 4.

Mikuru, Nagisa and CC looked pretty good out there. Maria and Isumi seem to lose a step. For the most part, everyone near the top did almost exactly as expected. Rin got murdered by Saber pretty badly. I expected her to hold up a bit better.

With my current stats, I agree with TRE.
But after K-ON!! 18/19, I think Mio will become stronger than before.
