If I recall correctly, you can choose up to three characters from each group in Round 1 of the preliminaries. It's in subsequent rounds when you'll have to choose up to two.

nope, you can leave out a few groups if I was not mistaken
still, one vote you waste = one vote that supports the character you do not like

Come to think of it, is Hideyoshi (Baka to Test) is still considered a gender of his own? (Meaning is he eligible to be part of the Male group.)

Hideyoshi is biologically a male. Last I remember being a trap doesn't qualify you as the other gender you're dressing up as or look like.

I believe he's male by biology (he's adamant about it if I remember right, it's just a running gag), but he's not eligible in ISML for one reason or another.

There's a guy in 'Flag' that's very similar except all of the main characters know he's male and it's just the side characters that are constantly confused, so he's considered a 'Hideyoshi' gender

Hideyoshi is not eligible because he has already won this before
the same way Kirito and Lelouch are not eligible

I believe he meant knowledge of which half of the Nova, Stella, and Male groups are going to be presented on Sunday, April 19, of which I have asked a similar question way back when. Most likely than not, Sunday previews are usually up on the Friday before, if it has not been up yet.

He missed his chance to win the male tournament 3 years in a row, but was able to win the Trap tournament last year.

The ISML 2015 Calendar is out on the website, so you can have a look at it. As for the reason why there are 5 days for Postseason Phase 1, we will have maglor or Crisu answer that when they want it. It's not reflected in the Charter yet so most of you shouldn't know the exact details yet.

^I was under the assumption that the extra day was needed for nominations for the fall exhibition tournament, but I could be wrong...

I want everyone to know that we discovered omission of Arima Souma from the nomination rank we released on Mar. 25th and posted correction of them on the 29th. This is why Hinata Shouyo is not in prelim. The error was simple accident that we missed while looking at thousands of lines of information. Chinese and Korean Nomination rank page don't have this error. In addition to a post about this correction, we were trying to make a Seitokai CD about the change, but never got to it due to all the other works needed for the prelim.

looking at Nova 6 like: WHAT!? YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS...

elsewhere Mashiro has a free ride,
with 3 top KyoAni Admiral (well technically it's 2 plus the Empress herself plus the commander of the SOS, wait, that's 4) are left to decide who will go first
Ruiko is there, too, though, To Aru fans has another upset chance to do

and oh yes, Stella 1 is another story of Shana vs random underdog with the potential to upset Shana
