Swiss-system? So it's like Nova Preliminary 2, right? So, what exactly does PS1 look like? Better yet, what does the flow chart for the circlets looks like?

Hmm, okay. So only 1 character will go 4-0 in the circlet. I guess that should be interesting on Nova's side, since 1 on 1 strength seems to be fluctuating. On Stella, I find it hard to predict anything other than a Mikoto vs Kanade final match for the Diamond circlet.

Also interesting how there will be 6 characters tied for the last two spots going into PS2. It's a bit too complicated for me to want to figure out now, so it'll be fun following that story till the end.

None of the Top 8 in each division have my interest, I think I'll stay for Tina Sprout and Tedeza Rize.

Let's get ready for a double-tiara champion!

So, seriously, do you staff think that the form nowadays are the best? I mean the basic part: 2 divisions with 36 contestants in each, a nova division for 1 and 2 degrees, 35 rounds of Regular Season within 5 periods, playoff in division and then in league.

well well odds are being thrown everywhere
I want to throw mine, too =)

Rough Odds:
SapphireShow
Itsuka Kotori= 2:3
Yoshino= 4:5
Tokisaki Kurumi= 4:5
Yuuki Asuna= 1:1
Kuroyukihime=1:1
Takahanashi Rikka= 3:1
Chitanda Eru= 4:1
Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko= 8:1
Other Contestant= 32:1 (basic win-it-or-lose-nothing odds)

things to be watch:
-Kotori has an easier match up, so as long as her fanbase stay solid, nothing could happen to her in day 1 and 2. On the contrary, should her victory margin be slim in day 1 and 2, don't bother hoping she could stand against Asuna or Kuroyukihime in day 3.
DiamondShow
Misaka= 1:4
Kanade= 1:5
Mashiro= 1:2
Kuroneko= 1:1
Aisaka Taiga= 1:1
Eucliwood Hellscythe= 2:1
Aragaki Ayase= 4:1
Shana= 2:1
Azu-nyan= 3:1
Akiyama Mio= 4:1
Inori= 16:1
Yui-nyan= 32:1
Hasegawa Kobato= 32:1
Yurippe= 64:1
Saber= 32:1
Haruhi= 64 : 1

things to be watch:
- Day 1 Misaka Mikoto vs Suzumiya Haruhi --> That "most likely we know who wins but if we left it as it is then s*** could happen" match for Mikoto fans, especially since no Haruhi franchises left in the list, means Haruhi die-hards will be like "vote cause this might be the last vote you'll ever give to Haruhi"
- Day 1 Tachibana Kanade vs Saber --> same as above for Kanade fans, but with higher probability since F/SN gets another run this fall
- if Kanade falls early, then Kuroneko profits the most (looking from last year result)
ps.: you read "1:2" as "you get one for two" etc.
Giving his love for life, and died dreaming about her in the end. A real happy man, right? ~

I think 72 contestants and 36 matches every round should have reached the process limit of our staff. And considering the schedule, if every period need to be put in seperate months, this is probably the only possible form.
