Best Moe – R1, Groups 1-2
The Best Moe tournament is a Korean-based anime moe tournament. It is basically to Japan’s Saimoe tournament on the popular 2ch BBS. This year’s installment began in early July with preliminary and repechage rounds to determine the top 64 characters which advanced to the main round. The main round begins today. Four characters each group; 2 advance, while 2 are out of the tournament. There are 24 hrs each to vote, based in Korean time.
If you would like to participate, just read the straightforward information on the site. The site is available in English, Korean and Japanese. It takes no more than a few minutes to vote and look through the moe comments. Maybe you’ll find a few pictures that you’d want to save too!
Louise Francoise le Blanc de la Valliere (Zero no Tsukaima 2nd Series)
Shiki Ryogi (Kara no Kyoukai)
Aoi Nogami (Zettai Karen Children)
Ryou Fujibayashi (CLANNAD)
Akari Mizunashi (ARIA THE ORIGINATION)
Hecate (Shakugan no Shana II)
Yuuko Ichihara (xxxHolic 2nd Series)
Chiaki Minami (Minamike)
My votes: Ryou, Chiaki
Ryou may not be a main character in Clannad, but she still wins out for me over TSUNdere Louise. At least Louise doesn’t get as much hate voting here as in Saimoe (Gin-sama anyone?). Personally, I like Chiaki’s character and personality a lot, especially when matched with baka Kana. From the moe comments so far though, Akari seems to be the runaway winner.
