With only 97 of the original 289 girls remaining the stakes are higher than ever as we enter Round 2. Also inside, find out which players remain in Metanorn’s MetaMoe competition.
[ CLICK THE SPOILERS TO SEE! ]
I don’t have the time on my hands to go through each round at the moment (and remember to use animesaimoe.org for all the information on matches and whatnot!), so what I WILL do is go ahead and predict who I believe will be the winners of each Group. The group winners won’t actually be revealed for another 3 rounds, but what the hell! Also, I’d love you hear your predictions in the comments!~
Group A: I see this round ending in a deciding match between either Koromo and Kobato, or Koromo and Saki (depending on how much of a threat the Saki supporters pose). I’d go ahead and predict that in the end Koromo will be the winner of Group A. On an off chance, probably Kobato.
Group B: Despite the lack of Saki, this group looks like it’ll be one of the more intense on both sides. I’m predicting Toki vs. Iori on one side and Akari vs. Mei on the other. As much as I want to say Toki will take it all, I’m going to give this one to Akari. There’s also the possibility of Mei continuing her dark horse run, after all she did rack up one of the higher totals. (Still, it’s not much compared to Toki.)
Group C: One of the weaker groups imo, but that makes it all the more fun! Right now I’m seeing either Shizuno vs. Yayoi or Astarotte. Either way, I think Shizuno will take this group.
Group D: CHIHAYA! CHIHAYA! CHIHAYA! *cough* Okay, so this is one of couple groups with little Saki threat. Anyway, I’m predicting an Asami Imai win here, either Chihaya or Kurisu, whichever wins the inevitable match. Nagi, however, might prove a threat. Oh right, I have to pick one … uh, Kurisu.
Group E: With 639 votes in her first match, I have to give this group to Saki’s Yuu.
Group F: So this is the group I’m most looking forward to in Round 2. There are a lot of popular Saki girls, but there’s also some other tough competitors thrown in like Eru, Riirichiyo, Nyariko, and to a lesser extent Haruka. It’s definitely be an exciting four matches. For the entire group I predict … Eru to win.
Group G: Saki will most likely tear through this group with little trouble. With that said, as much as I want Momo to win, I’ll say Nodoka. She seems to be one of the more popular Saki girls.
Group H: NO SAKI!? WHAT IS THIS!? Definitely the weakest bracket imo, but still some fun matches to be had. OH HOW I WOULD LOVE TO SEE NANO WIN!~ But I’ll have to give this one to Shana, though Sena will probably be tough competition.
Since I combined four groups worth of results there have been MANY changes to the MetaMoe banners, which you can take a look at below. As of now nobody has been knocked out of the competition, though a few people are on the verge of being eliminated and once Round 2 starts people will start dropping very quickly because of the nature of the game. By the end of the next round there will only be 32 girls left of the 97 still in the running. As you can see, lots of tougher rounds to come!~
- Foshizzle is currently the only person with all of his picks still in the running.
- Highway and Karakuri currently have the most amount of eliminated picks, at four. (gogo Tsukihi and Ai~)
