Shiro couldn't make it 4 out of 4 for Nova, still swinging towards them though. Nisekoi has a major advantage in Day 2, so let's see how things shape up next.

Ayase seems a bit strong for Chitoge.

The flow of love and hate towards Ayase is so unpredictable. It wouldn't surprise me if she lost her first match. But still, I don't think Chitoge can win ^^;

Yea, not just the character's own hate brigade, you've got hate toward PS1 winners, Eu nearly beating Yukino, and the fact that losing Ayase might mean weakening Yukino (which could also work against Yuigahama). Nisekoi can make their path to the semis very easy, and the draw helps them unify.

Heck you don't even get Hachiman these past 2 days to help OreGairu.

Then there's the hidden Kanade/Mikoto fanbase that seem to favour Chitoge (and maybe Nisekoi overall) that are just biding their time waiting for ToC.

Well, as one of Mikoto fan, I love Tsugumi most of Nisekoi girl (too bad she failed Nomination by 1 ballot), but still favor Chitoge too.

So, go Chitoge!!

Calling it now:

Onodera Kosaki will meet Kirisaki Chitoge in the semi-finals. Onodera wins.
Onodera Kosaki will meet the winner of Yukinoshita Yukino vs Sakura Chiyo at the finals. Onodera wins regardless of opponent.
Onodera becomes the third Hanazawa Kana member to obtain the Tiara.

The True Epic Final should be between Yukinoshita and Onodera. And Kosaki needs to take revenge!

I want Yukinoshita vs Onodera too, I really want that, but just give up... The anti/multivoters against these two will give the Tiara to Mashiro, sadly.

Taking in account Mashiro could not even beat Kotori last year, I doubt that will happen. I'd be really happy if she somehow wins it, though.

Actually, this 8 contenders both have fair chance to win tiara in my mind (maybe except for Chitanda and Yoshino), at least, I don't see a outstanding one.

ITYS

I was surprised at the voter drop between Day 1 and 2. The draw split hurt some and favoured some. Which means getting them all back together makes things harder to predict. It also feels like the guys and girls affect each other too much. I'm not too fond of having both at the same time (voting criteria being different), and this effect doesn't add to my fondness.

I can't look past OreGairu winning as all 3 reps are there, but we'll see how well Yoshino does. DAL could be strong and anti-voting will return. Something prompted the higher vote total on Day 1, and it could've been DAL (or it could've been SAO fans dropping the tourney). Either way, the top half have a much harder path to the final than the bottom half.

I also have this weird feeling where, if a character I like ends up winning the Tiara, she unfortunately becomes irrelevant next year. Bittersweet I guess. On the flipside, I'd be fine with a terrible character I dislike winning since it means they become irrelevant next year.

I like this tournament to maintain a consistent Sunday-Tuesday-Thursday voting schedule, instead of skipping days. Drawing out the league finals to mid-December is just cynical from my view. December should only be used for a Extra Tournament. As for the Fall Seasonal, the top four from this are going to be fortunate to qualify for Nova. This is an extremely weak field, making this difficult to handicap.

This probably won't ever happen, but what if a tie happened to a seasonal match?

Congratulations to Shiina Mashiro for winning the Tiara. Took you long enough, but you managed to get it, in the end of it all.

You shouldn't say this before she has officially beaten Yukino ^^;
Yukino looks vulnerable now, but she might pull off a victory because of her strong fanbase.

Anyways... GO MASHIRO!! :cooltongue:

Well, it might be people wanting to get rid of Mashiro for good by letting her get the Tiara
