Basically 126 characters will be in the qualifying round

- 56 auto preliminary entries
- 5 staff picks

Meaning 65 characters will be chosen through this so I like Mafuyu's chances
Nop, only 40 auto prelim entries. the other 16 are direct into the main tournament.
So 81 characters will get into prelims through nominations.

Mafuyu is pretty much a lock to get in. I've already found 13 people who nominated her and I've only looked at a very small portion of the nominations. The character with the 80th most number of nominations is unlikely to have more than about 15 nominations. Mafuyu has a better chance at recieving the 2nd or 3rd most nominations than not getting in.

Mafuyu and the rest in seitokai have really good chance to enter nomination.I already seen 10 people vote all 4 girls seitokai except that they lied me. Anyway even i optimist seitokai can do well in Nomination, i wonder how their chance in Preliminary later.

I don't think misspelling a characters name or a series title should affect a nomination, but I admit, to make sure my nominations got through, I looked up the spelling of all the series titles or a specific character I was nominating. Seitokai no Ichizon was one of the titles I looked up for an accurate spelling.

Ideally, it wouldn't have an effect. However, when you have a list of hundreds of characters there is significant potential for a nomination with a misspelled name to mistakenlt not be combined with the nominations from the correctly spelled name. I'm sure the staff will do everything they can to make sure mistakes like that are kept to an absolute minimum. Even if you're not too worried about your nominations not counting, you should still take a few minutes to make sure your nominations are spelled correctly so there's less work for the staff since correctly spelled nominations will likely be counted automatically by a program.

i've added the [ pre ] tag.

While it changes your text to Courier New font, it allows multiple spaces. Like what KholdStare offered, it's like the [ code ] tag but without the white box.

Looks like 9 out of my 12 nominations that are in the preliminaries is kind of like a double edged sword. The more choices, the better the chances of getting them into the regular season, but I would end up having to vote one or two favorites against each other which would be brutal.

In the long run, I am looking at Hinagiku (regular season entry), Misaka Mikoto (preliminary entry), and Mio going for the tiara this season.

Of my twelve, Kazari Uiharu, Ruiko Saten, Isurugi Noe (!!!), Ritsu, Mugi, Mio, and Nymph are in.

I'm bummed to see Nia Teppelin miss the cut, but Yoko made a surprise instead! I'm all about Yoko.

So for the prelims, I'm voting for the ones I nominated, plus Yoko, Mikoto, Ryou, and Kotomi.

I see that my plan to only nominate girls who had a chance of getting in worked. 11 out of 12 in, and the 1 who didn't I voted for a friend.

6 out of 12. I guess I'm happy. =)

Didn't really do an actual count but based on a rough quick glance, seems that the field has quite a significant number of series over a year old than more recent ones (correct me if I'm wrong here). Characters in new series have less appeal power compared to older series?

PS: Cardcaptor Sakura in the Nomination Table is misspelt as Cardcaptor Sakrua
