Winner: Madoka Kaname.
Although the result was as predictable as many believed it would be, two things immediately caught my attention. The overwhelming number of fake votes Madoka pulled in. And how unexpectedly hard Sayaka fought in this match-up — it was really close in the end. You just have to respect a competitor who keeps trying and never gives up. Still our winner today is Madoka and her supporters now turn their focus on the last quarterfinal match of the year.
Record alert: If Mami manages to prevail over the fan favorite squid, Madoka★Magica will become the first series in Saimoe history to have 3 representatives in the Semi-Finals. Personally I want to see Ika as tomorrow’s winner. Not that I have anything against Mami — she’s my second fav from the show — but an inter-series grand finals just doesn’t sound that exciting to me. But we’ll see what happens. Good luck to both.
