Come on down, 2015 Nova contestants

Post by Momento10 » Fri Jul 11, 2014 7:52 am

Considering that this year oddly had more returning faces than in the past, at least 20 slots are available, (assuming everyone returns and the diadem winner is a debut character), which sounds like a big gap to fill, so almost everyone has a fair shot at making it in. The question becomes who will be able to fill those gaps. This thread can tuurn into a fun prediction thread where everyone can just shout out names for the fun of it, but a hint of serious thinking and reasoning would be preferable. So, which girls have a legitimate chance of making it next year? We have the seasonal tournaments to give us some hints on what may come in the future, but popularity is fickle, and opinions change by the second, so who really has a chance after all is said and done?

For example, I won't be surprised if the three spirits introduced in Dal2 make it in, considering how well the five represented are doing. I wonder if eight representatives (the largest after Clannad?) mean Dal is that popular among the Isml voters, there aren't that many eye-catching shows this year, or we as a whole are not watching much in terms of variety. Nisekoi seems to have a shot to get one character in. I think it is popular enough not to be forgotten that soon, although who can say... I won't be surprised if Tokida Saya of Little Busters does not make it in. If Ex is doing something popularity-wise, I'm not seeing it yet. I feel like shows such as D-frag and Engaged to the Unidentified might not have any representatives unless some serious campaigning happens. I can see them in the preliminaries, just not in Regular Season for some reason. I blame the timing. I sadly wouldn't be surprised if Aiba Mui of Mahou Sensou makes it in. Nothing against her, but her adaptation...

2-3 DAL spirits (must have Miku), 2 Nisekoi, 2 NGNL, Satone (don't tell me Satone can't even enter next year's RS)

Not even fun shouting, if they can't enter I dunno which debutants can.

NOTE: Damn it that Itsuka Shiori isn't allowed.

I know we haven't seen their full strength here, but I'm betting that NiseKoi and NGNL will have two representatives next year in RS. For NGNL, we can at least guarantee Shiro(but I hope Steph can make it in too ;_;).

Also Satone needs to be in RS next year too. I'm hoping the Puella Magis and more Kaminomi reps can make it in as well, but that's probably unlikely :<

I think Nisekoi, NGNL and DaL will have two or three representatives.
I hope Fujimiya Kaori, probably Sailor Moon, The girl from Ao Haru Ride,Aihara Enju from Black Bullet and Satone can make it to the RS. :neko017:

I have a weird feeling if Akame makes it to 2015 Nova she'll be Himeragi strength at the strongest. I see Sinon and Satone making it in though. I have a bad feeling Gochuumon will end up being like Non Non Biyori during the 2014 Preliminary period or maybe even weaker.

If Chaika doesn't make it in I'll be a sad panda. NGNL should make it in easy, esp Shiro. Nanana might have some candidates, Tensai being awesome in my book. I don't think I care for anyone else, although I do expect more DAL to enter. Surely there will be more SAO characters, so them too probably. Nisekoi looked ok during seasonals so far. Mangaka Assistant might pull some people too. What else is there? Log Horizon might squeeze in. Mahouka? Eh, either way I doubt I'd care for many.

I haven't been following much of the new season yet, but maybe Akame ga Kill will have some candidates too.

Nisekoi: True, I can see both Onodera and Chiaki making it in. I put it in one out of the fear that people might not remember the series enough given when it was aired, but those two are sure contenders. I wonder if Maya will be able to sneak in as a third representative, or if there will be too many people contending once the summer and fall shows reveal themselves.

No Game No Life: Shiro seems like a solid contender for an RS spot. I wonder if people are saying two because they feel there is enough room for two to be there when all is said and done, because I am having a hard time figuring out which one is the second one.

Chuunibyou: I completely forgot about Satone. Yeah, I can see her as a contender, given how many we already have of the show.

Kaminomi: Aren't some of the Kaminomi girls moving to Stella next year (i.e., the Kaminomi girls who appeared in 2011) due to one of the rules for qualifying for Stella? That would mean Elsie, Haqua, Shiori, and I think Kanon are all moving to Stella. I highly doubt any of them will make it to Stella next year, but we'll see. But, everyone else not mentioned should be available for Nova; I just don't see who yet.

Isshuukan Friends: I would like Kaori to be in; I sadly don't think it's going to happen.

Black Bullet: I can see that show having possible contenders, particularly Enju. Tina might also make it in as well.

Gochuumon: I don't think there will be any representatives, sadly...

Hitsugi no Chaika: I...actually don't know if Chaika can make it in. I'm going to go with no, but we'll see...

Nanana: I forgot about that show. I can picture some people in the preliminaries (mainly Tensai, although there is Nanana herself). If they are going to be represented, I will either see one or none.

Mahouka: I think I can see them having a representative. I wouldn't be surprised if we see two in RS.

Let me just say that about 10 girls who qualified this year will most likely come back next year.

That leaves us 26 spots left. Winter was genreally decent while Spring saw a strong font. Summer currently looks slightly weak but we shall see.

Winter will most likely have Satone, Nisekoi girls, D-Frag Girls( Takao needs some more strength though, Saya etc.

I really like Kohina from Black Bullet, but it seems that only Tina and Enju are strong enough.

Ooh~ I was thinking Shiro and Jibril hahaha (;

I'm guessing this "Sinon" from SAO 2 will make it as well (and maybe more? idk)

No, don't destroy my hopes so early on...
Even in the seasonal tourney it looks like Chaika is up against NGNL's Jibril, seems like a tough match.

I like Rokujouma, but I don't think they'll get any reps. Unless they show is hyped somewhere that I'm not aware about

Kind of sucks that my favourite shows so far from this year have really crappy female representation.

Characters I would like to see next year...
Sailor Senshi
Little girl from Barakamon (she is soooo cute)
Nat-chan from Baby Steps, although she hasn't really had time to shine yet and I don't know if she ever will
Maybe Akari from Captain Earth if she gets some more showtime

Yeah, no real standouts.

Seirei Tsukai looks like the type of series where they might be mid tier in Nova at the strongest and I feel like Claire and Est are potential candidates.

Alright, so at least three episodes of all the summer series should have appeared by now. Any thoughts?

Btw, if anyone thought Mekaku City Actors are going to make it in, forget it. Takane couldn't even beat Aria, which says something. I haven't watched Seikoku no Dragonar, so I can't tell if this is a good result for Eco or not...

Aria is decently strong as A Kugimiya Rie.

It just happens that she tanked the last round.And who knows, exhibitions don't always portray the true strength of certain characters
