I remain the loyal servant of Nagato Yuki-chama.

If I had a second vote it would probably go to Ui, whom I expect to be one of the bottommost vote-getters. People should love hypercompetent imoutos more xD.

Yup. So that will make all of our Tiara holders very vulnerable.
except mikoto and hina... so really only 2 tiara holders out of 4 since fate isnt eligible

Well, I forgot that Hinagiku no longer has the support from Maria, Nagi, and others. ( Gasp! Does this mean Hinagiku might win this?! ) Mikoto does have Last Order with her, but they have the same DNA.... Akiyama Mio, Kanade, and Kuroneko will have to worry about same series split, as their series companions have significantly different character traits, thus it is likely that many would prefer their series companions over them.

So take away those characters with possible devastating series, seiyuu and other special faction split. We are left with Kuroyukihime (because Fuuko is too weak to split anything), Inori (but she seemed to do better at 1 vs 1 than multiway), Eru, Nyarlathotep, Kurisu, Shouko, Rea, Subaru, Homura and Misaki Mei from Nova. Mikoto (LO shares the same gene as her), Hinagiku, Victorique, Nymph, C.C., Holo and Konata from Stella.

Why are you all taking this so seriously? Vote split or not we all know Kanade + Kuroneko will get 75% of the votes.

^Hope the above statement is false


Interesting match. voting for only one among the 72, I wonder how well each character will fair. Looking forward to the result, as this had yet to be done one time, it may be surprising (or not at all, alas)
Characters who have another character from the same series more popular than them are going to get the shaft, as most of the votes will probably go to support the most loved character of said series in such cases .

Anyway, for my own vote there is no doubt in my heart. Victorique is the one and only possible choice o/
BTW, even though she won the hurt and heal she didn't get a poster... I think. ;(

Finish the two posters and I can't call you lazy anymore, I did all the work I needed to do (I got all of the epitaphs done and have the Touhou Opening Post completely updated despite working Close to 40 hours a week) so when you do, I will stop :P

If this were a regular match with a 1 vs 1, probably.
This way, not likely.
Either fellow characters will steal votes away from the more popular or someone else will.

In most matches I would support Kuroneko easily, but when it's a choice between her and Hina, there isn't even a question of where my support goes. And if Nagi were in the match, even that would change.

Kanade and Kuroneko might have the advantage over any single opponent, but against 70 others? No one's going to walk away from this battle unbruised.

Funnily enough, Ui for some reason doesn't really feel like an imouto, compared to say, Mikan or Takanashi Nazuna.

If you provide those two as examples, then I'm quite sure your "imouto factor" is the presence of a male/onii-chan character to bounce off. A lot of the stuff I watch doesn't include males period so I don't have that as a prerequisite. Sisters can be much closer to each other than a brother/sister combo without it getting creepy, which strikes my fancy.

I have not voted under such a new form in any saimoe tournament. Everything is new.
And it might be difficult for many people to make a decision.
