Congratulations to Gokou Ruri for winning the Amethyst Necklace. It really does suit her greatly, with her purple hair, personality, and all of that.
Of course, that is not to say she on the match easily. Looking at the score calculation, Taiga was only six votes away from getting the victory. It really does look like Shana is pulling her own. Of course, that is not to say that Shana is not popular, but with two popular Kugimiya Rie characters, there will be some conflict, and it is evident in this match up. Yuki certainly tried to pull a Shana or a Kanade, but with such a low SDO, she was not able to muster it, even with having the second highest votes for.
Congratulations to Ikaros for winning the Amethyst Brooch. It was indeed a very close match, but somehow, Ikaros did it. Holo was very close and even had the majority of the world by her side. However, Assuming Ikaros was the close second for those who did not vote for her, Holo would not be able to make it. For the remaining free-for-alls, to my surprise, Kirino would actually be the winner of this match. Victorique would even take second place while Rin takes third. It was quite a surprise for me, for I was sure Rin was able to pass by both of them. Another surprise was when Haruhi defeated Mio, who had no one to slow her down to begin with. It seems like Haruhi has more name recognition than K-On! in terms of these matches. Ritsu completely blasted her competition for the victory on her side.
Dalian obtains a big victory over Yin for the win. To my surprise, Kobato would actually defeat Haruka by a decisive amount of votes as well. It does not appear as though Amagami SS is as popular as I would have imagined. Hinata would get a close victory over Ayu. Better luck next time. For the tag team exhibition match, I was quite surprised that Ariel and Chris would be the winners. Maybe Eru and Mayaka need more screentime to develp before having a true say here. or maybe they really are not as popular as I would have liked them to be.
