Yukino will not make it to the Sapphire Finals. 1/10

Illya and Rin will both make it to the Diamond Finals. 1/20

None of the following contestants will win their respective Circlets:
Yukino, Mashiro, Rin, Illya, Onodera, Chiyo. 1/100
I want to all in my lollipop to the one 1/100, do you bet with me?:P

I won't make a definite prediction but.....

Nova: I could see one of the necklace winners winning the nova circet (Sapphire) (Yukino, Onodera, Chiyo. Not likely Chitoge but who knows).

Stella: 6 necklace winners, 3 with minor jewelry and 7 without jewelry/Posters. (Can't count Eru since there were no seasonal posters in 2012). I think a different challenger will get her first necklace/poster.

I bet Yukinoshita Yukino will lose against Tsukiko in Nova's round of sixteen and lose Finale league against Sakura Chiyo.
I bet Tsukiko will lose against Yuigahama Yui in Nova's quarterfinal.
I bet Yuigahama Yui will win Sapphire Circlet
I bet Chitanda Eru will lose against Rikka in Stella's round of sixteen.
I bet Stella's finale will be Asuna against Kurisu.
I bet Desufire will commit suicide after finale results.
I bet Sakura Chiyo will win Heavenly Tiara

On another note, you might be able to see the Postseason PV punctually (i.e. at the beginning of Postseason) this year.
I better see all 7 tiara bearers at the end somewhere... awaiting for their 8th...
This would be a great promotional picture for finale

I'm praying for a miracle that Chiyo will win..but honestly, this year has been so crazy, I wouldn't be surprised if an underdog suddenly emerged the champion.

I have a question about the upcoming autumn seasonal nomination.

I can't remember the exact rule, but I believe that any series that had previously participated in 2014 and 2015 seasonal are ineligible to be nominated, except if the character appeared only in autumn 2015. By "participate", does it mean being eligible to be nominated, or actually made past the nomination phase into the top 32?

The concern the case of eligibility for the Autumn series K:return of kings. Just now, I noticed that the BD for the movie <<K: Missing King>> was released in Spring 2015, making it eligible for spring seasonal, but no characters made it past nomination. Now in autumn the series is having a second season airing.

The latter, i.e. in the single-elimination stage.

Trivia!!!

1. Which of the following contestant(s) will have 3 or more wins in Phase I?

Jibril
Yoshino
Kirisaki Chitoge
Sento Isuzu

Aoyama Nanami
Aragaki Ayase
Saber
Kuroyukihime

2. Which contestant(s) will enter Phase II because of a win against another contestant with an equal number of wins? (The win must be the deciding factor for their advancement.)

3. Which contestant(s) in an anime with more than one (1) contestants participating in Phase I will not advance to Phase II?

4. Which finalist in each division had the easiest path to the finals (as measured by the sum of the ratios of the Contestants Pot Values by their opponents Pot Value after Round 3. Higher ratio wins.)?

5. Which finalist in each division had the hardest path to the finals (as measured by the sum of the ratios of the Contestants Pot Values by their opponents Pot Value after Round 3. Lowest ratio wins.)?

If I have to throw a deadline into here, I'd say at the end of voting for Round 2.


Lollipops to the correct answers! (Partial credit is available)
*Winners/Participants will not actually be awarded lollipops (unless Kholdy is being weirdly nice)

Like last year I've created a little tool in Google Docs that will allow for playing around with Phase I matches to see what the rankings will be.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Simple save a copy of the spreadsheet and change the numbers in the "Winner Index" column to select the winner for that arena. "1" is for the left contestant, "2" is for the right contestant. The arenas in Rounds 2-4 will auto populate based on your selections from the previous round. The "Rank" in the table on the right will be their final rank based on your selections.

We need a good html person who can handle our web pages and a good server administrator who can do Crisu's bidding in preparation for Server move.
