The Hirasawa sisters are in...I'm gonna put my money on the other members of the band getting in on the first two preliminary voting rounds.

You heard it here first.

Rin will make it into the regular season if she beats Suigintou, Haruhi, or Mikuru in the near future.

oh yes I know.. im just one of those types who.. tends to hope for the best and prepare for the worst , though im ready to go and vote for her on the 15th ? But I just meant more so to state it is a depressing thuoght to have her back in the prelims after such a good season. Didnt meant to sound like it was 100% certain sorry about that (posting while tired isnt good noted*). But we will know very soon either way. But thanks for making it clear either way

"Only 2 spots left for auto-entry into regular season of ISML 2010!"


But what does that mean...exactly? And who?

(Too little information presented)


EDIT: Added question: What about SBM...if the winners (top 4 it looks like you are going for) are (a) female and (b) not listed above already?

I'm sure China's Saimoe is still out due to the "international" requirement, though Saimoe itself seems to be heading that way...though not completely yet.

Agreed. It would be nice if someone said "Top 10 in the tourney auto-qualify for the regular season" or whatever it is.

I'm not sure if we agreed on something for China or KSBM yet, but any qualifications from there will be to the preliminaries, not the main tourney.

Piecing it out (actually looking back at the first post), I've deturmined that the auto-qualifieds are: the Top 4 of ISML. The Top 4 of Best Moe, the Top 4 of Saimoe. and the Top 8 in DE for ISML...though the total is suppose to be 16.

Via this, one can piece together why there are two spots left. Taiga is in three of those and Kagami is in two of those, while three of the Top 4 of ISML duplicate the Top 8 in DE for ISML, Haruhi does not. Thus Haruhi takes Kagami's second spot, but Taiga's two other spots are open. (from Saimoe and Best Moe).

Well, it seems like it's top 4 of the regular season, top 4 of Korea and Japan, then the top however many that leaves to get to 16.

Top 4 of ISML Regular Season:
Shana
Haruhi Suzumiya
Tomoyo Sakagami
Kyou Fujibayashi

Top 4 of Korea Best Moe:
Taiga Aisaka
Kagami Hiiragi
Azusa Nakano
Ushio Okazaki

Top 4 of Saimoe Japan:
Taiga Aisaka
Nodoka Haramura
Mihoko Fukuji
Yui Hirasawa

Top 8 of ISML Tournament:
Shana
Kyou Fujibayashi
Yuki Nagato
Hinagiku Katsura
Kagami Hiiragi
Tomoyo Sakagami
Taiga Aisaka
Fate Testarossa

That leaves two spots. The next four out are Haruhi, Mikuru, Suigintou and Rin. Since Haruhi's already in, they'll go to the two winners of the 9th place semifinals. Should Haruhi win one of those matches, the final spot would go to the winner of the 11th place match.

If this IS the process, then it's a fair and interesting way to get to the result. It just would've been nice to know that going in.

amdrag almost got it right, except for one tiny technicality. The reasons we're not releasing the eligibility requirements are 1) we don't have to until after DE and 2) we take pleasure in watching you guys trying to figure it out.

Well the problem with what you said is that prelim next year will be very different from 2009's one.

I see there is two confirmed Saki and two confirmed K-On for next year.

Looks like I will need to come up with some new interstellar regions. One a sub-set of the Non-Key half of the KyoAni Empire and the other...well I don't know yet. People have been stating that Saki won't do will in ISLM, so I hesitate to make them a major power even though there are two in already and four in the prelimaries already. And GONZO doesn't have anything else in the tournement right now that I recall to give an overall alliance-like power (since so far there are no Strike Witches, and Full Metal Panic's dual studio statues with KyoAni and GONZO won't help because there is little chance of Tessa coming back...nor Chidori entering.) While I could have them fill in the hole that will be left by the departing Touhou, I'll need more information and/or insperation on the matter.

Well ithekro, the fact there are many Saki in the prelims already is because of they doing well in others contests. You probably will need to see how well Saki charas do in nominations and prelims to try to gauge their strengh.

I think we saw enough of what they're capable of after Saki faced ancient Ayanami, lol.

What Demi said. Unless the other Saki characters are a lot stronger, they'll have trouble winning even 25% of their matches in a field as strong as this year's.

Hey Rei is supposed to be a very strong contestant too, considering the remake. I don't think the Saki charas will be top 16 level, but at least a couple of them can be >0.5 level.

That is kind of the basic problem. Saki herself doesn't seem to be the strong contender, but the others are, though I'm not sure how to take Rei beating out Yuki in vote count...though I suppose it has to be with opponent in this case.

Though if Yuuki gets in, there is yet another new Kugimiya Knight for the fold...thus potentially a placement for Saki...in the Tenuous Alliance under Grand Master Shana.

I think reason #2 is kind of like "speak for yourself." But yes, we're keeping our plans for ISML 2010 off the site (meaning we'll leak stuff here but not in public) until after DE.
