If you're talking about Meiko, I believe she got banned for a day.
Damn. That's so sad. I hope he/she comes back soon.
He/she was the real thing...
i mean the way she/he jumped to the argument for his/her Menma
i pretty sure she/he already clashed opinion with other members in number times from the first time i came to this forum

Girls: 8/14 (Poor WIXOSS) I'm actually surprised Naru Kotoishi didn't make it.
Male: 5/6 (Poor Iskandar)
Winter: 5/6

With the exception of Naru and Iskandar, I didn't really expect much out of my failed nominations.

Is it just me, or is there something weird about how the groups are organized, particularly Nova? I say weird because I cannot really describe well/in detail what it is that has been bugging me after closer inspection. Is the word I am looking for "not even?"

We seeded them to the best of our knowledge so that once Round 3 starts, all the characters seed themselves with 2 rank shifts. Even if original groups are completely random, theory says we still get sufficiently accurate seeding after 2 rank shifts, as long as there is no more than 6 of the Top 36 in each Round 1 and Round 2 groups.

tl;dr - they are seeded in a way to give us the most information so don't worry about it

So here are the characters I'll likely support:

Nova:

Code: Select all

1	Tokisaki Kurumi
6	Yatogami Tōka
13	Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko
22	Yaya
32	Shichimiya Satone
37	Kurousagi
63	Sakura Kyōko
70	Yuigahama Yui
I only know 22 of the 80 that got past nominations, but there are quite a few I'm indifferent toward or simply dislike. There are others I wouldn't mind supporting, but these characters are ones I like to a higher degree. Other than these, I'll probably abstain like I have been and let everyone else decide which shitty Nova series I should watch.

Stella:

Code: Select all

1	Yūki Asuna
4	Aisaka Taiga
8	Chitanda Eru
9	Tōsaka Rin
10	Nakano Azusa
12	Yuzuriha Inori
13	Makise Kurisu
14	Aoyama Nanami
16	Nagato Yuki
18	Suzumiya Haruhi
19	Oshino Shinobu
20	Holo
21	Aragaki Ayase
22	Hirasawa Yui
25	Victorique de Blois
26	Senjōgahara Hitagi
30	C.C.
31	Momo Belia Deviluke
32	Yui
34	Yui-nyan
39	Sakagami Tomoyo
43	Kashiwazaki Sena
45	Louise Vallière
48	Hasegawa Kobato
50	Tōwa Erio
52	Hiiragi Kagami
53	Nyarlatholep
54	Kotobuki Tsumugi
55	Ryōgi Shiki
57	Kirigaya Suguha
58	Sanzen'in Nagi
59	Saten Ruiko
62	Ichinose Kotomi
63	Roromiya Karuta
68	Numph ❤
69	Suigintō
70	Laura Bodewig
74	Takamachi Nanoha
79	Ryūgū Rena
I knew all 80 who made it past nominations, but I was able to come up with this list in one go. And since this is still more than 36, I will have to narrow this down further. Of course, this will probably be done for me automatically due to lack of support anyway...

Male:

Code: Select all

2	Accelerator
7	Sakamaki Izayoi
11	Okabe Rintarō
16	Okazaki Tomoya
18	Archer
20	Kyon
33	Akasaka Ryūnosuke
50	Kaiki Deishū
52	Usui Takumi
61	Kida Masaomi
64	Sugisaki Ken
I only know 34 of the 80 who passed nominations, many of whom I an indifferent toward or dislike.

So happy to see only two of the Clannad Girls failed to make it this year (Ryou and Mei didn't really had the biggest fanbase anyway). As much as I want to see them in RS, there's only a slim chance of even just one of them getting in, with Nagisa having the most chance since she has the biggest nominations votes. You might think it'll be Tomoyo, but both Tomoyo and Kyou didn't had stellar performances in Prelims 2014, unlike with Nagisa who almost got in, with Haruhi getting a slight edge over her (100+ votes). But yeah, at least I get to see them at Prelims.

I'm also excited to see how Nibutani Shinka and Aoyama Nanami will fare now that they're in Stella (BTW much better chars than the main girls in their shows). Nagato Yuki will probably get a lot of help with her new anime.

Ugh. Iwasawa Masami got in. I'm still pissed at how she got a lucky break and got in to RS even though she's pretty weak (The only girl in RS last year who constantly got 3-digit votes), whereas other characters who are considerably stronger than her (Furukawa Nagisa, Tohsaka Rin, even Sakagami Tomoyo deserves it better than her) failed to get past.

Speaking of Tohsaka Rin, she got quite a lot of votes. Will her reanimation help her in the long run? At first I thought not really, but now I'm really doubting myself.

Quite a lot of Love Live this year. Judging from last year's nomination results, it's quite a jump. Not really sure if they'll get past prelims.

As for the guys, I'm just happy Inaho got more votes than Slaine ^_^

Iwasawa is alright. Don't forget that Shiina from the same show once made it into the main season -_-.

Rin will be powerful only in early season, she'll drop considerably when autumn comes
Saber is still the one with the biggest fanbase amongst Type-Moon girls and Rin has to depend on China

Clannad will rely on luck, the same way all the old series except Shana (and Taiga, perhaps) have to rely on luck

I don't see Shinka making it to top 16, but she'll not go down that deep either
Nanami will have to depend on her miraculous PSI & II ISML 2014 result, her battle is with Haruhi series, FSN series, to Love-Ru, and possibly K-On! (well, at least she'll always have support from the small community called "ISML Forum")
Nagato is still unpredictable, we don't know how will the adaptation go

Masami was helped by Kanade
but, Angel Beats is still a considerable forces despite losing HanaKana, so probably Masami will miraculously make it to RS again only to be bullied there.
ps.: if only Shiina has proper development :(

Agree with this and would add Iwasawa Masami (IMO better than Kanade and Yui both) to the list. Personally it's the secondary characters that are better for me (Hinagiku falls into that category as well, and manages to be the series 'Dark Horse' because of it)

Alright we have asked somebody who doesn't have the name of "Crisu" to do the job for us. (a.k.a. Eater-of-All) So you now can see the first three days of Prelim in scheduled events.

Problem is Crisu is the liaison to the admins of these. We probably can ask maglor to mention it to them though. One post per day however is not a good option.
