Probably the most surprising of this is Erio having some life in her to compete one last time. A win over Homura puts Homura in a dangerous bind. If Homura wants to be in, she needs to step up her game, for Tuesday is her last chance to get into ISML, and then maybe never at all...

Possible IronyShow
C.C. upsetted Yozora in Round 1
Yozora is in Regular Season, but not C.C. (unless she is going to upset Charlotte, which is very unlikely considering Charlotte is possibly the strongest character to missed out advancing in Round 2)

You're right, I forgot that characters with a semblance of personality, development and uniqueness aren't allowed to do well in ISML.

Some of them are, right? Although for example Holo isn't going to make it, which means that one of the best character who could participate isn't going to. At least she participated several years. Most of the excellent characters (ImO) never even had a chance to even pass the prelims whereas we're getting peoples go kya kya about cliché and boring characters everywhere. A popularity tournament isn't about quality anyway, so I would say that mostly yes, complaining about cliché moe character passing instead isn't very logical.
BTW, I disliked Rin in the first season, thought she was a cliché character from start to finish. Disliked Komari and that muscle daruma even more in the same anime though.
Shinobu, I heard she's good in the LN. As for anime, in bakemonogatari I , nisemonogatari and nekomonagatri, I wasn't impressed at all by that character. Maybe she's better in the latest anime.

Monogatari Second actually made me like Shinobu a lot less, particularly loliShinobu. Best Shinobu isn't even in the right "timeline". Coincidentally, that timeline also held best Mayoi~ Also, PeacePeace > half the girls here. Hayami Saori voice is teh sex.
You should watch Monogatari Second though~~ Koi is love~

Hi, guys! There's nothing more to be said about this topic. Any more harassing each other and I'll punish you guys. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

Instead, please have this cute gif of Hamtaro!

*Sigh* Then I'm not going to appreciate Shinobu any time soon I'm afraid :(. I'm interested in the novels but they are edited by koudansha with those overpriced Koudansha Boxes. If Koudansha ever publish that series with their LN label, I'll definitely buy them, but Koudansha Boxes are a rip off ImO. I mean, I paid less for a 1200 pages LN of Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon than i would pay for something which has 4 times less pages, a crappy cover and 10 times less illustration as a whole. Just because they put a box with it (which isn't even that nice looking to boot) isn't going to convince me.
Monogatari second... Well, I'll probably watch it someday, but to be honest, it's not among my priority. I liked more bakemonogatari 1 that I liked Nisemonogatari, which I liked more than Nekomonagatari. I didn't hear especially good things about bakemonogatari II, so I'm afraid I'll like it even less. I'll try it someday, definitely. Just not looking forward to it. Koudansha, please edit those titles wiht your LN label already -_-.

^loliShinobu started out great in Tiger but then just proceeded to get irritating in the middle arcs :( she's still my third favorite of the Monogatari girls though, being ousted from second by Yotsugi PeacePeace-chan~

@Zefyris: I haven't seen Neko but I found Nise pretty bad, probably since I'm not the target fanservice hnggg demographic lol. Monogatari Second is way way better though. About on par with Bake. Before I watched it, I heard that it was really rushed and cut off bits from the LN, but when I was watching it I didn't notice it at all. I haven't read the LNs though so that's probably why: I didn't have anything to compare it to. I'm not sure where you heard the negative reviews of it from, but I thought the general consensus was that it was one of the better anime of last year and amongst the best for that season despite cutting Hana and having stupid recap eps that I didn't even watch. Soyoushouldtotallywatchit Yes da.

Revenge Time~
