Group H2-2 Results:

  • 1位 288票 Shana @ Shakugan no Shana III – Final
  • 2位 224票 Kuroyukihime (Black Lotus) @ Accel World
  • 3位 81票 Shinonome Nano @ Nichijou

Looks like Nisemonogatari got their first rep to be an R3 qualifier. Hitagi seemed to have no problem winning on KugiRie combo day. She earned a total vote count of 279; about 98 more so than Aria. Always great to add more variety to the contest.

Over in the “H” region we have veteran Shana showing that her spirit continues to burn brightly in a fiery passion. It was a hard-fought battle between Kuroyukihime and her, but she came through with a vote count of 288; around 64 more so than Hime.

This brings my record for correct R2 predictions so far to 21-7.

For today’s matches, I’ll be supporting Yamada and Rika. Good luck to your favorites.
