Block D

Ah Block D. Block D for DOLT! This is a top heavy bracket, featuring many SaiMoe favorites. And only one can advance. Yikes. Except some epic battles from the first round to the third round in this bracket.

By the way, im writing this while farming Alterac Valley. Not the best of ideas, but meh.

[[D01]] 8/31
<<一ノ瀬ことみ@CLANNAD>>(Ichinose Kotomi@Clannad)
<<ノーラ・アレント@狼と香辛料>>(Nora Arendt@Spice and Wolf)
<<清浦刹那@School Days シリーズ>>(Kiyoura Setsuna@School Days)

Nora is too minor of a character to matter, and Setsuna may put up a fight - but the KyoAni faction will be too much for both as Kotomi will win in a huge landslide. And it'll be HEUG because.. well, because of the voting day.

[[D02]] 9/01
<<北条麗華@ご愁傷さま二ノ宮くん>>(Houjou Reika@Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun)
<<吉野屋先生@ひだまりスケッチ 特別編>>(Yoshinoya-sensei@Hidamari Sketch)
<<ゆい@こはるびより>>(Yui@Koharu Biyori)

All of these characters are meh characters for the most part, but Reika is the least meh out of all of them. Yoshinoya-sensei grates on my nerves sometimes - but that's expected in that show.

[[D03]] 9/02
<<坂上智代@CLANNAD>>(Sakagami Tomoyo@Clannad)
<<シェリル・ノーム@マクロスFRONTIER>>(Sheryl Nome@Macross Frontier)
<<坂井千草@灼眼のシャナII>>(Sakai Chigusa@Shakugan no Shana Second)

Why is even Sakai here? And sucks for Sheryl - she's too cool of a character with BRIGHT SLAP and all - but KyoAni faction will be too strong for her, especially since Tomoyo got a big boost from the Tomoyo-centralized Clannad episode 24. It wouldn't surprise me though if we see Sheryl pull a upset though. Macross Frontier is still running, after all.

[[D04]] 9/03
<<九軒ひまわり@xxxHOLiC◆継>>(Kunogi Himawari@xxxHOLiC Kei)
<<星乃結美@キミキス pure rouge>>(Hoshino Yuumi@Kimikiss pure rouge)
<<朝倉由夢@D.C.II 〜ダ・カーポII〜>>(Asakura Yume@D.C.II)

To me, these are all bleh characters. But my vote goes to Yuumi - who let go of her love for a man so that he can go off for another woman. That's some serious heart and wisdom right there.

[[D05]] 8/31
<<泉こなた@らき☆すた>> (Izumi Konata@Lucky☆Star)
<<リインフォースII@魔法少女リリカルなのはStrikerS>>(Reinforce II@Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS)
<<園宮可憐@スカイガールズ>>(Sonomiya Karen@Sky Girls)

Yikes. Two potential favorites to win it all and a minor character who can play spoiler. As much as I like Reinforce I, (who was just baddass,) I'm not as fond with Reinforce II. Karen will pull a good number of votes - but it'll pail in comparison to the girl known as "Legendary Girl A" - Konata Izumi. KyoAni fans will rally behind their leader, and I doubt none will be able to challenge her in this group.

[[D06]] 9/01
<<西連寺春菜@To LOVEる>>(Sairenji Haruna@To Love Ru)
<<フミカ(ミカ/シゴフミ配達人)@シゴフミ>>(Fumika/Mika/Shigofumi Mailgirl@Shigofumi)
<<鈴木凛@バンブーブレード>>(Suzuki Rin@Bamboo Blade)

All of these characters are not explictly strong. I'm going with Haruna just because she's the only character I know in this group. Wouldn't surprise me if someone else wins though.

[[D07]] 9/02
<<六瓢代理(鴫守(しぎもり))@我が家のお稲荷さま。>>(Mubyou Dairi/Shigimori@Wagaya no Oinari-sama.)
<<久遠寺夢@君が主で執事が俺で>>(Kuonji Yume@Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de)
<<ヴィルヘルミナ・カルメル@灼眼のシャナII>>(Wilhemina Carmel@Shakugan no Shana Second)

I expect Wilhemina to pass this group with ease ~de arimasu. The other two characters in this group are too minor to matter ~de arimasu. I also voice the very lovely Haruka Nogizaka ~de arimasu.

[[D08]] 9/03
<<ティアナ・ランスター@魔法少女リリカルなのはStrikerS>>(Teana Lanster@Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS)
<<委員長(ラストアマゾネス)@瀬戸の花嫁>>(Iinchou/Last Amazones@Seto no Hanayome)
<<吉田一美@灼眼のシャナII>>(Yoshida Kazumi@Shakugan no Shana Second)

This'll be a battle between Teana and Kazumi. I feel Kazumi will have the slight edge due to being more moe then Teana (whos more tsundere, not that affects voting). It'll be test between the Shana faction and the Nanoha faction here.

[[D09]] 8/31
<<ファティナ@ドルアーガの塔 〜the Aegis of URUK〜>>(Fatina@The Tower of Druaga ~the Aegis of URUK~)
<<マリア@ハヤテのごとく!>>(Maria@Hayate no Gotoku!)
<<竜宮レナ@ひぐらしのなく頃に解>>(Ryuuguu Rena@Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai)

Wow. Loaded group here. Poor Fatina though - didn't deserve being put into this group where she'll probably be crushed. Same with Maria, who is a better character then most but both will be omaeshikairi'ed (I misspelled it, probably) by Rena, who last year got to the semi-finals and booted Kagamin out of last year's SaiMoe. Poor Fatina, poor Maria.

[[D10]] 9/01
<<篠崎咲世子@コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ R2>>(Shinozaki Sayoko@Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion R2)
<<芳乃さくら@D.C.II 〜ダ・カーポII〜>>(Yoshino Sakura@D.C.II)
<<田村ひより@らき☆すた>>(Tamura Hiyori@Lucky☆Star)

This one for the most part is a big guess - mainly because these are characters that are not that well known. I'm going with Sakura Yoshino here - since she was in DCI as well, and she's voiced by Yukarin.

[[D11]] 9/02
<<アディリシア・レン・メイザース@レンタルマギカ>>(Adilisia Lenn Mathers@Rental Magica)
<<音無芽留@さよなら絶望先生>>(Otonashi Meru@Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei)
<<宮子@ひだまりスケッチ 特別編>>(Miyako@Hidamari Sketch)

This'll be a battle right here between Miyako and Meru. Miyako is your overkill moe, and Meru is that quiet mean moe. My personal preference here will be Miyako - and the main girls of Hidamari have been doing very well so far, and I would expect nothing less then a good showing at least for Miyako.

[[D12]] 9/03
<<マリナ・イスマイール@機動戦士ガンダム00>>(Marina Ismail@Gundam 00)
<< ミケ@スケッチブック 〜full color's〜 >>(Mike@Sketchbook ~full color's~)
<<ラゼル・アナディス(ラゼンシア・ローズ)@破天荒遊戯>>(Rahzel Anadis@Hatenkou Yuugi)

Marina is a minor character. Mike is a friggin cat. Rahzel is a main character, and I would be slightly surprised if she doesn't do well. Besides, she's a awesome mage.
