Two in rounds 3 and 4, three in round 5. (Each round being 2 match days, if I'm not mistaken)

For those bad at math, 6*2 + 6*2 + 4*3 = 12 + 12 + 12 = 36 characters each division admitted throughout 3 rounds.

Oh
Well
Then my fears were weird and unneeded. Kurisu should get in on round 1 even if she loses to Eru

I feel sorry for Tina Sprout who's destined to become someone who will hover around but never win anything.

Taking bets:

"Jibril beats out Nishikino Maki as a Tier 1 contestant in Nova"

I'd say there's a 2:3 (~60%) chance of this happening.

Early Guest at Nova Tier 1Show
Shiro
Tokisaki Kurumi
Sakura Chiyo
Yukinoshita Yukino

I think Yukino will end up as one of those "unfortunate Tier 1"
her anime second season is on-screen, but I don't see it helping her in long term
in the end her result will depend on other competitors from Tier 2-3

I'd say it's 3:2 in favor of Jibril, actually:
- Shiro is strong enough to pull Jibril, while Maki is the alpha girl for LL here
- Isuzu is not here, yet, and her result in round 1-2 suggest that she's stronger than LoveLive!
(while KyoAni seemed to have calmed down in Round 3, I guess their fans are aiming for a lower tier 2 or tier 3)

Dammit!

This day throws off my scoring numbers. Illya is not beating Mashiro any time soon I don't think, come back to me if she is still doing this well by end of Aquamarine.

Back to the drawing board.

Can anyone explain to me why poor Maki (second place finisher) has to be seeded with all the first place finishers?
She has absolutely no chance in that group...

it's because 2 first-place finisher at Nova come from the same series (Nisekoi) and the staffs would like to avoid intra-series match as much as possible

lol, actually I think she deserves to be in that group
so far, in ISML 2015, Maki has never faced a strong opponent directly (because everything is still done in groups)
in RS, she would have to face everybody - weak or strong - one by one

what if all her opponent in a group are characters considered as powerful? How much vote will she get compared to this character? How big her fan-base is? How much loyalty they have to her, when they would have to choose between other character as intriguing or even more intriguing than her?
we don't know that, certainly this is one big test to LL: do they have what it takes to succeed DAL and win ISML?
me? I don't think so,
but though I would not want LL to dominate ISML, I think every series deserves a chance, including them.
plus, this will provide some good data for my Fantasy Calculator

Makes sense I guess.

We don't really need this match up to confirm that LL isn't anywhere near as strong as DAL though.
Just take a look at the previous result, Maki (strongest LL) couldn't even beat Chitoge.
Tier 2 at best. Should be happy if they manage to claim a single necklace.

Well, Maki did beat Kosaki on Day 2, while Kosaki beat Jibril on Day 6.
I'd say up till now, Shiro, Chiyo, Kurumi are safe picks for tier 1, while Yukino is also likely. The remaining seat will be up for grabs for Jibril, Chitoge, Kosaki and Maki. I don't see Isuzu coming close to this bunch.

Isuzu should have come close if not for KyoAni's failings during round 3
that's why I pointed it out in my post that replied Avery's: seems like KyoAni is aiming for a lower tier 2 place
lower tier 2: it's easier to predict when you have to mass a certain number a voter, because you can just say: we're the underdog, so we need every help we can get all the time :D

well all we can do is watch
if Round 4 is dominated by KyoAni, then we can conclude it's true
(though they would have to fought with AB! and Fate for that)
