We're entering week 6 of Japanator Saimoe 2012 and this unstoppable freight train of cute girls and democratic process keeps moving forward! This week features the second half of the quarterfinals, so by this time next week we'll be down to our final four!
The Fall quarterfinal is full of characters that were already well known before the season aired. Yamada and Poplar returned for a second season of Working!!, Squid Girl returned for a second round of her series, and Persona 4's Chie was already popular from the game the anime is adapted from. So which of these familiar faces will get to move on to the semis? The girls had similar results in the opening round, so there really are no overwhelming favorites. It should be fun to watch, or for that matter, vote in!
So head on down to the fancy new comments section to vote and on the way check out our winners for the Summer quarterfinal. This could be a close one, so make sure you're not left out!

Summer proved to be a solid matchup with three of the four girls in the running for most of the round. Himari was expected to put up a fight, but surprising underdog Minami managed to go one vote better. Still, there seems to be no stopping Rin thus far, and it was only a matter of time before she gained a comfortable lead. The adorable Bunny Drop star hops along to take on Ms. SCIENCY Magazine 2010 in the semifinals, so be back April 30th to have your say in that.
Now let's take a look at our Fall Quarterfinalists:
1. Yamada Aoi has been freeloading off your votes this whole time.
2. Poplar Taneshima is hoping to increase her stature in the tournament.
3. Chie Satonaka... eh screw it, KING'S GAME!!! BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY
4. Squid Girl has mastered English to be come the Master of Japanator Saimoe.
So those are your four choices, now go ahead and get voting! This round will run until Wednesday, April 25th, 12 Midnight EST, so plan accordingly and we'll see you Thursday to wrap up the quarterfinals!
