J.C. Staff, SHAFT, Production IG, KyoAni, GAINAX, Madhouse, GONZO, Toei Animation, Bandai, AIC, Studio Bones, HAL Film Maker. 12 studios in less than 1 minute off the tip of my fingers. Mostly because they have produced some of my most favorite animes (except Bandai which I remember due to my dislike of Gundam).
Good job, you won. XD But, will most of the random voters able to name 5 of them and have a strong bond to a specific studio? (Anime producer= Anime studios I mean)
I agree on your power-play hypothesis. There are rarely cases which a fan only supports the characters in an anime but not the anime itself. However, just like KholdStare said, has there been hate developed among fans of those two series?

Yes, mainland China (let's use this term from now on) is inclined to be anti-K-ON; they did support Mikoto last time. The problem is how to keep Taiwan in check.
@Kiopi: There is no question that Mikoto can be used as a tool against Mio. The question is, why would Shana fans want Mio to fall? Do they really want Mio to fall at all?
Maybe I should do that. However, both chisml forum and baidu isml forum are even less popular than here. I would say there are more than 10 but less than 20 people other than staffs in the baidu forum, probably the same case in chisml. I haven't visited there for a while. However, it appears to be pretty quiet. ISML is not really that popular in China, at least in my friend circle. I am actually the only one who cares about ISML. lol
PS: there were 20 posts yesterday in baidu isml forum, and 114 for official chisml forum.
First, please forgive my poor English, sorry ╭(╯^╰)╮...
I think you received some mistaken informnation, In baidu forum, we had about 20 new topics and at least 300 new posts yesterday. Today,we still have that numbers of posts. If we make an vote, there will be 200+ votes in total as usual. In our forum, we now have 485 members, and about 50 who often stay there~ In baidu, our fourm name is "世萌", not "isml" ...
Also, as the administer of "世萌" forum in baidu, what I got is "mainland China anti k-on all the time, it's not means they all hate k-on, but just means more people like J.C.STAFF as well, especially Shana. It has a dominate performance in recent years, but in this year, Mikoto also has a high support. last match, both Mikoto and Mios' fans make a big call on to vote for them, Mio fans club even make the fans cards in reality to give their fans to vote..."
Also，I want to say that Taiwan maybe has more influence, last match Mio got 61% there, as Taiwan nearly has the same total votes as mainland, We can't decide anything, todays match Azusa also defeated in Taiwan,(51.3% for Shana),if the 51.3% is for Azusa, maybe the result will change...
do not ignore the Taiwan 's force...
