I dont know how the fixtures for play off spots will happen, but here's my judgement of the results :

Tiara Winner - Shana
Losing finalist - Nagato Yuki
Semi-finalists - Railgun and Kanade
Quarter finalists - Azusa ( will lose to Shana ) , Hinagiku ( will lose to Kanade ), Taiga ( will lose to Railgun ), Kuroneko ( Will lose to Nagato Yuki )
1st round casualties - Nadeko, Charlotte, Senjougahara, Yuri, Yui, Eucliwood, Haruhi and Mio.

Reasons :
1 - Kanade not winning ?
Been one and half years since AB! ended. Fair weather voters are starting to forget about her already. Look at KBM and AST and her recent performances in ISML. Not domeneering anymore. Couple that with Shana Final in full swing, i am quite confident she'll lose to Shana in the semis. Another reason is the fact that of the hate votes accrued by her because of her 49-0 reg season score. Since her match with Shana will be on the day before Yuki x Railgun semifinals, Yuki and Raildex fans might want to get Kanade out of the system as early as possible, and they know Shana has a good chance in doing it, due to Kanade's plummeting popularity ( as been shown by Railgun 49% vote against Kanade , Taiga ( a tier TWO girl ) hitting 44% against Kanade ). Tactical votes coupled with fair weather voters siding with newer and still fresh anime gives Shana a good shot in beating Kanade.

2 - Yuki over Railgun ? Well, thats my personal choice, and tbh this match can go either way. With Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsuu, Yuki gained a lot of popularity boost, with her moe-side enchanting a lot more voters. Well, Railgun is Railgun. So, its a toss up between them.

3 - Azusa to lose against Shana ? New material vs old material and Shana lost vs Azusa because of the Kuroneko camp helped Azusa to beat Shana and for them to steal Sapphire. In a straight fight for Tiara? No chance for that to happen.

I think Hitagi and Nadeko will fulfill their task again as last ones :p
And I think Shana can pull of a tiara-grab this year. If she beats Kanade in semifinals (Azusa will get owned) she will have it.

My PredictionsShow
1) Mikoto - Hate/Revenge voting against Kanade
2) Kanade - Not enough strength to win against Mikoto for the 2nd time
3) Shana - Season III will not give her big enough of a boost to overcome the Top 2
4) Yuki - May lose to Shana due to SnS III
5) Taiga - Her Postseason ranking has been on the rise (2009 - 10th, 2010 - 6th). I think she'll be able to crack the Top 5 this year
6) Azusa - Valid Tier 1 contestant who will now be the K-ON!'s top representative due to Mio anti-voters
7) Kuroneko - She has her fanbase, but just not enough to overcome the stronger veterans
8) Hinagiku - HnG Movie, for the small group that watched it, may give her the slight advantage
9) Mio - K-ON! Movie won't make it in time, unfortunately
10) Haruhi - She can never seem to get past the girls above her
11) Eucliwood - Without the 2nd season of Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?, she'll stay where she was when the Regular Season ended
12) Yui - Yui is probably more moe fellow Angel Beats! character, Yuri
13) Yuri - Under Yui in the overall stadings
14) Hitagi - No change from Regular Season standings
15) Nadeko - Will be able to sneak past Charlotte
16) Charlotte - This would probably have been her first and last opportunity in the Postseason if ISML did not split into two divisions
Warning, it's quite long.

I'm going to side with TRE for predictions (mine aren't always accurate)
but just wanted to comment that most of the tiers have Hinagiku @ 8th. Sad that she has to face Tenshi so early, maybe manga readers will get her a good strike, but not enough to win out.
Hopeful for 7th, betting on 8th.

@_@ Shana and Kanade can't possibly be in the final facing each other, they will face each other at semifinal if they got that far.

I think the most probable scheduling for SE is this :

Maybe by highest VD? Or by their ranking at the end of the Regular Season?

Well... since this is SE instead of DE, considering the group and chances of winning in the tree...
The result should be something like this.

4 wins
1 Kanade

3 wins
2 Shana Mikoto

2 wins
3 Mikoto Shana
4 Yuki

1 win
5 Azusa
6 Kuroneko
7 Taiga
8 Mio Hinagiku

Last year, i was just a silent voter and silent lurker, so i dont really know how they'll do the losers rounds.

1 - But i am sure, 3rd and 4th place play off will be between the loosing semifinalist.
2 - for 5 - 8 th = the math ups should be in the 3rd round of SE ( semifinals rounds ) . with Azusa vs Kuroneko for 5th place, and Taiga x Hina for 7th.

I might be wrong, in the prediction of the loser's bracket though.
