Japanator Saimoe 2012: Summer Opening Round


Japanator Saimoe 2012 rolls on but our quest to find the most dangerously endearing girl in anime has only just begun! The Spring opening round is in the books but there is still plenty of good ol' fashioned internet debate to be had. 

The Summer bracket is headlined by a trio of particularly young ladies in Rin, Himari and Yune. Toss in a couple of Idols, some comically mild girl-on-girl action, and one of my underdog favorites and we got a fight on our hands! Will Rin hop over the competition? Can Himari survive the opening round? Will victory be lost on Yune? Only your votes can decide! 

So head on down to the comments to vote, and on your way make sure to check out the results from the previous round. We had great support for the Spring group, so let's keep it up! 

Spring Opening Round Results: 

As tough as some the decisions in the Spring group may have been, the top seeds still dominated at the end of the day. The only minor upset came from Nano over Menma, but I don't think that was much of a shock to anyone. She will face off with the Steins;Gate girls and a resurgent Elsie when the Quarterfinals begin on April 16th. 

Now on to the Summer bracket:
