Japanator Saimoe 2012 continues as the final decisive battle draws near!
Three more contestants will be sent home this round, setting us up for our semifinal showdown. Who will be the last girl standing? We are so close to finding out! For now though, let's wrap up our last quarterfinal match.
In an unprecedented turn of events, the entire Winter quarterfinal features girls from the same series. The dangerous ladies of Nisemonogatari include the Fire Sisters Karen and Tsukihi, Vampire of the Year Shinobu, and the Classic (yes, going all the way back to 2009) Hitagi. While I'm sure the voting battle will be brutal, the real question I want answered is who has the best Shaft Pose?
Think about that before you make your decision.
Read on after the break for your Fall quarterfinal results and then get ready to vote. Friendly reminder: with the new site you can now comment using your original Japanator account, no more double logins! If that's not incentive to participate then I don't know what is.
Now that was a round for the ages! We witnessed a historic collapse of a #1 seed as well as one the closest three-way races in tournament history. Yamada votes were nowhere to be found as the other three girls battled for position through the first two days. Chie clung to a one point lead for most of the third day until galactic punting the competition in the final moments. The Persona 4 star will face off with one of the Nisemonogatari girls after they finish fighting it out in today's match, so be back May 3rd to vote.
And now for our final group of quarterfinalists:
1. Karen Araragi has threatened to kick me if I mention anything involving oral hygiene.
2. Tsukihi Araragi is platinum (insert emotion here).
3. Shinobu Oshino was told there would be donuts at the end of this, proceed with caution.
4. Hitagi Senjougahara will remove those handcuffs if you let her win.
So there's your quarterfinalists, now get to voting! We're a little late on this one so we're moving the deadline to Sunday, April 29th, Midnight EST. Let us know your choice in the comments, and we'll see you Monday to for the start of the semifinals!
