(Ryuuguu Rena@Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
1474 vs 1436
(Takamachi Nanoha@Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS)
Very tough match for Rena, she is up against the '05 winner and the only survivor from Nanoha series. I expect that the Nanoha-legion would run amok to support their last character! But don't get intimidated, Rena WILL take Nanoha home ;)
Amazingly close call for for Rena - only 38 votes difference! Coupled with another false victory due to large influx of fakes, this match almost gave me a heart attack. But in the end Nanoha was taken home!
(Sanzenin Nagi@Hayate the Combat
1334 vs 1272
(Izumi Konata@Lucky Star)
The otaku showdown! Konata has a very dangerous low profile, compared to the Hiragii sisters (Tsukasa and Kagami). If a Sucky*Star character is going to win (doubtful, since japanese hate KyoAni - producer of Lucky Star) it is going to be Konata.
As I both hoped and expected the NEET with character development won against the otaku without ;P
(Furude Rika@Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
1473 vs 1191
(Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière@Zero no Tsukaima)
Louise group victory was a surprise! hell, dominating her group wing was even a surprise! I expect that Rika's moe'ness will be boosted by hate for Louise.
This match was much easier then most people thought (not including myself). Rika won by almost 300 votes!
(Shinku@Rozen Maiden Ouverture)
1697 vs 1639
(Hiiragi Tsukasa@Lucky Star)
Very marginal victory for Shiku. Anyway the bad news is that she is going to be a very tough opponent for Rika!
