why? cuz Azu-nyan is Azu-nyan Taiga is just some old tora <3
I like k-on because its an unique kind of show, (no guys, love dovey stuff) and it can cheer you up~though I gotta admit, when I re-watch it dubbed or even english subbed, it seems more like a meaningless stupid show because alot of things in it have no meaning in English and many jokes in there would only be understand by asians.

Rather unfortunate that Hina had to go as I would like to see the sort of comeback against Shana that had her get the Tiara last year. She just can't squeeze out more votes from North America region where it would probably be key to her victory over Shana (who had overwhelming support in China and Latin America which I believe has a sizable voter base).

I'm hoping Azusa is capable of splitting the China votes against Shana (at least below 55%). If that happens, then the situation would be more dynamic, relying more on the votes from other countries which Azusa might have an advantage, looking at the voting behavior in the Shana-Hina match and the Taiga-Azusa match.

I'm really surprised that Tomoyo didn't win against Nagi. Is it because the girls of CLANNAD are in decline ? So the next fight for Azusa will be with Shana ? It'll be a close match with a win by Shana...(again)

I have just one thing I really don't understand. Why is Shana so popular ? Ok she's a tsundere, loli-look-like but that doesn't explain all... Am I missing something ?

Maybe it's her famous line! She likes saying "Urusai! Urusai! Urusai!" when pissed at Yuji!

I think a lot of people in the anime circle are way too quick to drop the "tsundere" label. Honestly, it's almost like every character in anime gets that label if she's not a soft-spoken, submissive, codependent type. I even hear Mikoto and Mio get the same label, but all three are in my opinion completely different characters. Just because Shana (or Mikoto or Mio) has a rough edge doesn't mean there's nothing deeper than the archetype.

In Shana's case, since you asked, I can tell you a bit of why I like her personally. I think it has a lot to do with the atmosphere of Shakugan no Shana itself. I think there is a very distinct aesthetic, between the soundtrack, storytelling, and introspective pacing of the show that really sets the stage to strengthen the characters. In addition to that, I like the concept of a hardened warrior suddenly thrown into a situation where she has to learn about love, having never even heard of the emotion before. The way Shana deals with this inner conflict is not always graceful (enter the "tsundere" label), but given her situation, it's only natural, and to me, that development is fascinating to watch. I was first introduced to Shakugan no Shana during a pivotal growing stage of my life, too, so there's also that added bonus of being able to relate to her conflict (so yeah, some sentimental power, too). She's not written with the intention of being as adorable as possible, but the realness I see within the fiction here adds something that really can't be surpassed easily.

CrimsonFallingStar> It's true that a lot of people labels a character as tsundere too quickly and I just did the fault with Shana it seems ^^'

So the reason you like her is because of her weakened nature when being faced to an unknown emotion and the inner conflict it creates. Interesting ! I didn't see her like that and it can be useful for me for the futures predictions as I'm a newbie in that domain compared to all of you.

Well, some others characters have key line too but it didn't make them as popular as Shana ^^'

I was very suprised to see Shana win, but it is an excellent result. Dissapointed that Taiga and Saber lost, but you can't have everything I suppose. Nagi winning and the exhibiotions matches are all great results.

@Nemingway
Well, the tsundere label does exist for a reason, but when it comes to strong characters (and we can cite all the characters left in the tournament, for example), a simple one-line archetype simply can't account for the whole character. Our remaining contestants - and I'll include Taiga and Hina here, too - are popular BECAUSE they have that depth that can transcend the archetype. Thanks for asking though - I hope this makes sense.

LOL!!! That famous line is also one reason why there are people pissed at Shana.

But anyway, on the tsundere part, KugiRie's tsundere somehow brings the tsundere archetype to a totally whole new level. A combination of immature-like retort and physical lashing (Louise especially) somehow defines this KugiRie brand tsundere (wonders if there's some kind of fixed personality template for tsundere characters voiced by her). I kind of miss the tsuntsun-deredere arcetypes of the older days like Naru Narusegawa.
