Why do I get the feeling that Shiori will make it to Main round again? Misaka Shiori always looks weak, but just never dies.

Sad girls in snow appeal.

We are still likely a month from knowing how well these girls really do. One suspects some of the newer girls will make it in, but odds are that the majority will be veterans of ISML.

I agree, for about 1/3 of those qualified for the prelims this year were in last year's main season, with only about 1/12 of them being re-nominated. In a strange world where everyone from last year except for the re-nominated pass through the prelims, up to 9 characters would be fresh meat to ISML's main tournament. (The "up to" was added because of the existant possibility that 2008 contestants might get in, and they are certainly not fresh meat to ISML.)

BECAUSE SHIORI IS LOVE.

Also Im pretty sure that, depending on groups, quite a number of K-ON/Bakemono/Saki/Railgun/Umineko/<insert popular show here> characters will pass prelims at the cost of last year participants.

I can see 2 from Seitokai no Ichizon getting in with very little trouble. One more might also sneak in.

You missed one K-On. Yui and Azusa are in from Round Robin/Saimoe, Mio, Ritsu, and Tsumugi are in from Nominations...and Ui is in from Best Moe. I almost missed her too...but then I almost missed all three of Toradora as well since they were all in from before.

Shouldn't Nyan Koi be 3 instead of 2 (Kirishima Akari, Kirishima Kotone and Mizuno Kaede)?

Here is who I might think will get the first 14 slots without refering to my fantasy picks.
SpoilerShow
Group 1: Mio (K-on) almost too easy
Group 2: Nagi Sanezn (Hayate no gotoku) vs. Hitagi (Bakemonogatari)
Group 3: Mafuyu (Seitokai no Ichizon) looks easy enough
Group 4: Kurimu (Seitokai no Ichizon) looks easy enough
Group 5: Nagisa (Clannad) vs. Saber (Fate/Stay Nite)
Group 6: Everyone is in the running
Group 7: Suo (Darker than Black)
Group 8: Everyone is in the running
Group 9: Mayoi (Bakemonogatari) vs. Yuki Mikan (To love ru) (Even though CC is in there as well, this could be Mikan's chance to pull an upset) (But they all face each other in round 1)
Group 10: Minatsu (Seitokai no Ichizon) vs. Evangeline (Negima)
Group 11: Haruka (Haruka no Himitsu) ? (Can't really choose anyone here)
Group 12: Everyone is in the running
Group 13: Saten Ruiko (Nomination tally may play a factor here)
Group 14: Misaka Mikoto (Index/Railgun) Looks easy enough

Now that the Phase I Groups have been released, with no relation to my Fantasy list whatsoever:
Girls I Prefer to Win Each GroupShow
Group 1: Either Mio or Kotomi, but I'll probably be rooting for Mio more. Hopefully Mai can get in in one of the later phases.
Group 2: Prolly Misuzu, but I wouldn't mind if Hitagi got through.
Group 3: Most likely Mafuyu.
Group 4: Either Rena or Bernkastel, but does ISML really need another Rika look-alike? :cooltongue:
Group 5: Chii. Ayu would also be fine.
Group 6: Yami or Holo. Will have to support Cardcaptor Tomoyo in one of the later phases.
Group 7: NADEKO! :love:
Group 8: Either Sawako or Koromo would be good.
Group 9: Nanoha, hands down.
Group 10: Kobato.
Group 11: It must be Rika or I will cry tears of despair.
Group 12: AMU-CHI~ Hanyuu would also be okay.
Group 13: Ruiko or Tessa. Too close to call.
Group 14: *EDIT* Totally forgot Ange was in this group so definitely her, not Mikoto.

Hmmm....

This early on with 126 to choose, yet only 14 to win for 34 slots...still will be slightly better than last year's dire straights, but also might be more fustrating at this stage.

Groups, eh?
SpoilerShow
1. Mio, though a Kotomi is fine too...plenty of bullying to go around for Kyou or Haruhi.
2. Hmmm. Misuzu would be good to shore up the Key border, and Ryou tries so hard. But then there is Nagi and Hitagi as well (though I'm still not sure if Hitagi can be classed as moe or just hot) Mugi would be interesting, as would be a few of the others....
3. Maria (my preferred Rie is of the Tanaka variety), but this is likely Mafuyu's time.
4. Rena. Oyashiro-sama needs her Collector.
5. This is a painful group....Suigintou and Chii (both Rie Tanaka) plus Nagisa make this choice very painful. We'll see in the end who takes it.
6. Minori (Horie Yui can by awesome)
7. Another group that could go in any direction., probably Nadeko, Ui, Akane (Horie Yui again), Fuko, or Hayate.
8. Beatrice or Mei ("Onee-chan"...Yukari Tamura can be very effective with her mischievous loli voice)
9. Nanoha (Yukari loli) followed by Maria Ushiromiya (Horie Yui again)
10. Hmmm... Sakura I guess...the First One is needed.
11. Death Group...two Saimoe Champions! But priorities first...Rika, then Desu~
12. Ami is fine, but Hanyuu is still priority number three on my list
13. Tessa...Priority One. (Rena is two) Kana is later.
14. Chiaki then Ange.

lol Itheko, you never make it clear whether you're doing predictions or those are your picks...It almost seems like It's a mixture of both.
