And ditto again. I do like Mugi and Ui, but they're no match for Alicia.

What I've found out is that, some of the contestants who were in Prelims but failed to make it to Regular Season are overperforming.

Of course, Alicia didn't even make it to Prelims, which makes it more amazing.

There is a little weird psychology at work in 3 to 1 matches. When 2 of the choices can be seen as more similar compared to the lone one out, it can raise people's awareness of the lone exception. This can result in positive or negative boost, which will depend on situation, but in general it is possible to form groups of 3 that will make certain characters appear stronger than they actually would be in simple head to head match. In this case, Tsumugi or Ui might beat Alicia rather soundly in head to head, but when choices are paired liked this, people can't help noticing the situation as more of K-ON vs ARIA, and we do have disproportionately large number of ARIA fans among the regular contributers to the forum. We also should think about poor performance by ARIA characters in past ISML discouraging people to even try for Alicia. Finally, Alicia is so awesome, she doesn't need polls and Moe Tournaments to let people know how awesome she is.

Unfortunately, Aria isn't as popular as shows like K-on! or Shakugan no Shana and its characters probably wouldn't be able to win a tournament just because of the difference in the number of viewers. However, for the audience it was aimed at, it was amazing. Anyone who liked it loved it, and in the end I guess that's the most important thing.

Mugi, no contest!

Sadly, it always rejects my vote when I vote in these forums. :'(

lol not a great poll for K-ON as these two girls would split the votes which is good for me, since I will vote for Alicia. :)
