ISML 2015: Yukino, Ayase win Circlets
Yukinoshita takes Sapphire, Aragaki wins Diamond, Nao Tomori claims Summer Diadem

By Jo-Ryan Salazar
The Bedlam on Baltic Avenue
November 9, 2015


Match Day 4 of the 2015 International Saimoe League Postseason concluded with Yukino Yukinoshita winning the Sapphire Circlet and Ayase Aragaki overcoming regular season difficulties to run away with the Diamond Circlet.
Image In the Nova Division, Yukinoshita blew apart Kosaki Onodera, 3713-3356 to finish tops of the Division. Wrapping up Nova play for the year, Yui Yuigahama thrashed Chitoge Kirisaki 45073-2203, Chiyo Sakura throttled Jibril 4905-2425, Yoshino silenced Shiro 3575-2809, Shino Asada defeated Kurousagi 3671-3370, Isuzu Sento drove past Marika Tachibana 3790-3211, Kurumi Tokisaki shot down Tohka Yatogami 3888-2887 and Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi won a 3439-3375 thriller over Maki Nishikino.

"Aquamarine and Sapphire heists, not too bad," said Yukinoshita at a press conference in Tokyo. "But now, the real work begins. I want to make this month a month to remember. I am in it to win it. I want that Tiara."
Image Aragaki took the Diamond circlet with a clinical 3948-3319 smashing of Mashiro Shiina. Because of Aragaki's late-season struggles in the regular season, this is declared by the Bedlam as the Upset of the Round. Wrapping up Stella play for the year, Eru Chitana leveled Yuri Nakamura 4067-3086, Saber slashed past Nanami Aoyama 3899-3024, Kurisu Makise trounced Saber 3678-2704, Illyasviel von Einzbern defeated Rikka Takanashi 3721-3534, Rin Tohsaka routed Kuroyukihime 3847-3190, Eucliwood Hellscythe silenced Azusa Nakano 3562-3531 and Taiga Aisaka roared past Yui-nyan 3671-3555.

"Finally!" Ayase said, raising her fists high like a heavyweight champion after a massive prize fight at the press conference. "It feels good to be back on top and win the trust of the voters. I hope that I can enjoy this feeling one more time and join Ruri among the retired of this competition with a Tiara victory because I've been doing this way too long!"
Image Nao Tomori won the Summer Diadem with a 4024-3248 scalping of Umaru Doma, while Kurumi Ebisuzawa claimed third place with the closest victory of the round, a 3491-3445 nailbiter over Ayumi Otosaka.

"I want to thank Yuu (Otosaka) personally for his faith in me as well as Joujirou and Yusa and Ayumi for their support," said Tomori at a press conference in Tokyo. "All the voters came out and wanted to give me a taste into what I can expect next year. I won't disappoint you all. I'm going to give it everything I got and make a splash in the Nova in 2016!"
Image Finally, in other news, Accelerator won the Sapphire crown while Lelouch Lamperouge claimed the Diamond Crown. Accelerator now becomes the odds-on favorite at EVEN to earn the Scepter over Hachiman Hikigaya, who has been downgraded to a 3-2 second choice.
Image Match Day 5 of the 2015 International Saimoe League Postseason is scheduled for November 15, 2015. Vote for your favorite candidates at InternationalSaimoe.com and join the ongoing debate. And keep it right here on the Bedlam on Baltic Avenue for continuing coverage of the International Saimoe League, the world's premier anime character competition!

Rip my circlet winner prediction. Honestly, I'm more worried about that than the fact Ayase pulled an upset and won = ( the posters are absolutely beautiful though. Finally good male characters winning. Also that Nao <3 was there any doubt about her winning this seasonal?

So Ayase? Meh. I don't hate Ayase, I hate a series...
Yukinon won? This is okay.
Also nice posters.

She's not, even if she won against Eu, she would only have 0 QW since Yui-nyan would had 0 win and Eu would had 1 win, in that case Rin and Illya would replace Saber and Eucliwood.
32 votes away from Rin and Illya enterning... -_-

I think I missed something, because I'm a little lost on how the Male Division winners were decided....

Ayase's poster is welcome. :bigsmile:
It also pretty much ensures Mashiro will take the tiara.

@ Staff: I wish we had the bracket graphics during the division finals, and updated as it went along. Or at the very least, the starting brackets... Would be nice for the league finals as well.

Kholdy also made a poster. Let's pet the Tsumikitty for his poster too nyaa~
*bows to the almighty poster goddess Hikacchin*
The posters look amazing, thanks for all your hard work over the year! Thanks to Kholdy and Grish for their posters too!

Overall, decent results for me. Wasn't expecting Ayase to win, but all the more for upsets.
I second Kordosa's request for brackets.

Kosaki-chan, you did your best @_@ The fight is not over yet!
Also lol @ Ayase. I kinda like her, but I don't think she deserves this win ^^'

I think maglor said the starting brackets were not defined, and could change depending on the results of each match, to avoid too many intra-series fights.
But yeah, from an external point of view, it was very hard to follow the tournament. The regular voter has no idea about who will be qualified for the next part of Postseason, it's a bit sad.

Disappoint at Ayase got the circlet, Yukino is expected for months ago, and both NGNL girl lose.
I want to say shit result, but at least Kurisu got PS2 pass in is nice enough, and Shovel girl win for 3rd place seasonal.

Saber still be representative of Fate series, as she is only one enter PS2.
(On the same cause, since when that Yoshiro become representative of DAL instead of Kurumi? I didn't notice.)

Amazing poster, especially Acceralator, which I expected that he will be nice on poster like this, and this poster confirm it (finally). Awesome work.

Support request for brackets too.

For angry Ayase fans in the forum, you are free to go to Bilibili's Shanghai head office to protest at their computer for this random selection:

For anyone wondering, since I was too, a bracket can be seen in the statistics page for elimination

Awesome posters, thanks to staff. Really love Nao's poster, and Accelerator looks so cool in his.

Crazy turn of events. Looking forward to the League Finals.

I would've preferred Mashiro to win the Stella final, but I kinda like Ayase too, and she had never had a poster before, so I can't complain.

I thought Kosaki would win the Nova final; perhaps her fans are waiting for PS-II to show their strength.

I'm glad about Nao winning the summer seasonal tournament. And she has a very nice poster to boot!

Unfortunately...... Outside of Onodera, there may not be anyone else that I could support that is strong enough to win the tiara. Best case scenario may actually be a third Hanazawa rep winning the tiara.

Then again..... If Yuigahama manages to avoid facing Yukino, or Mashiro manages to power up late, Maybe the tiara winner could be someone else.

You had one job ISML. ONE JOB. And you blew it. You gave it to a shitty character who can't even bother trying to understand her own shitty friend's issues.

Wow.

Posters are amazing. But that one result sours the entire everything
