Saimoe 2008 Best 8 / Quarter Finals

Round 4 just finished, there are only 8 characters left now. The result from last round was lil bit dissapointing for me, but as expected tho.. Miyako, Shana, Akari all dropped 🙁 but I’m still happy tho, since I’m rooting for Kagami to win this match heh, ganbatte Kagami-chan!

This time is harder to decide which one to support; The only one that get 100% support from me is Kagami-chan, and for the rest maybe I’ll vote for Tamaki, and Hinagiku. Still can’t decide for Fuuko or Tsukasa…. leaning to Tsukasa at the moment tho..

If you compare with the previous Saimoe, this year Saimoe is a lil bit bland.. only 4 anime made it to the best eight.. Clannad, Bamboo Blade, Lucky Star and Hayate no Gotoku; and 5 characters are from Kyo-Ani… but thank god with the Quarter Final draw, there won’t be all Kyo-Ani semi finals heh (at least either Kirino or Hinagiku will be in the semi)

    A lil bit surprised that almost all but one clannad girls were dropped in the QFs.

    Kagami received the most votes for this Qf, and the most percentage as well.

    The semi will start tomorrow. I’m rooting for Kagami to win!

    Semi Finals:

    Kagami vs Nagisa (30th October 2008)
    Tsukasa vs Hinagiku (31st October 2008)

    I’ll make new post tomorrow covering the semi finals and final.

  5. Konata TT___TT she’s gone~

    Now, either Hinagiku or Kagami would be OK for me~

    But looks like this year we gonna have decent result, coz last year everybody in downloadAnime forum (including me) quite disappointed at the result~
