(1) This is a very unexpected match. We only gave it about a week worth of warning. I actually expected turnout near 5000 when I was making predictions you saw in the beginning of this thread
(2) Many people felt too conflicted to vote
(3) There was no "prize" or "formal recognition" associated with this match. Many fans felt it was waste of their resources to campaign in this match.

Well, the top 8 are still taken mostly by strong characters that does well in 1 vs 1 (except for kurisu and homura), i guess this can't really mean much.

Expected result. Most of Top 10 are those who are strong on free-for-all more than 1 vs 1.

33 That's the top half at least. Still one of the most popular pink heads

Asuna's the only SAO girl to get over 50, and only one girl of the 72 got under 10. Pretty good showing considering all of the negatives.

Not much. Further review removed very few votes from Russia, thus you can consider my prior statement as valid result, if you can forgive 1 or 2 vote difference.

Congrats to Misaka Mikoto! It's a landslide victory. Now if only her fans cared this much about the Tiara she might win another one of them. I expected Homura to be a lot stronger in this format and it really showed. She was near the bottom of Nova in the regular season, but it terms of dedicated support she's way up there with the elites. Holo is another character who as expected to benefit from the format and she did quite well as well. What susprised me was how well Shinobu did. She's not very strong and her fanbase was being split 5 ways. She ends up being competitive with Hitagi. Shinobu really did look close to Hitagi back in 2012 but was a shadow of her former self in 2013. I hesitate to make any serious claim for 2014 from these results but it would be nice if Shinobu got stronger again. C.C. is another character I expected to do well in this format and that also showed in her results. Konata and Kurisu doing so well was a bit surprising, though. Unsurprisingly, Yuri and Yui-nyan get totally hammered due to Kanade being in the poll ans requiring support. Rikka was able to put down the hammer on Shinka and Touka so they don't look too good either. Nadeko also suffers a lot due to the poll format and the division of the Monogatari fanbase. Nadeko tends to have a unusually low first place votes to strength ratio. I guess while a lot of people like her, not as many people love her. Recent events in Monogatari may have also been a factor. One thing that's interesting is how Clannad did. Despite splitting votes three way, they tended to do better than you would expect independent characters of the same strength to do. Overall the results are pretty interesting. I'd love to see this match come back next year.

While a lot of this shouldn't be used for statistics, I do find it interesting that character who likely won't appear next year got very few votes.

72. Ui - I don't think anyone thinks she's going to make it in with the newcomers from Nova entering
70-62 - All bottom of the barrel characters who had their year(s) in ISML due to series hype alone. Yes, Touka made it into Postseason, but it was probably only on series hype, and I don't think she's going to get into ISML again next year judging by the seasonals.
67 + 62 - Shouko and Subaru - They basically scraped their ways through prelims purely off of getting auto-qualified.
61 - Yozora - She got in on series hype. No one likes Yozora. Doubt she'll return.
60 - Mikan - She got in through series hype as well, but did relatively well. I don't see her getting in next year due to not having a closely airing season but I think she gets auto-qualified (in the current system) so who knows
57-53 - All dead series that aren't super popular any more. The only one I see getting back in is Yui purely off of water remnants of popularity Asuna has left.
51-47 - All dead characters from series that are no longer in the limelight
37+38+39+41 - Konata, Matou, Nymph and Menma. Characters that probably won't return next year purely from being a one off character that's not super popular.
16+14 - Holo and C.C. - The only exception to the rule. High up on the list, probably won't return

Every other character I expect to either come back next year, or is on the edge (Rin, Hinagiku, Tomoyo, Nagisa, Illya, Charlotte, Homura, Shinobu)
