My votes: Horo, Rena
Wow, Group 11 is deep. Personally, I never really liked Maria (and was amused at her first round matches on Saimoe). To be honest, I’m not too familiar with Kiri, and Kotomi isn’t my top character in Clannad. Horo was the character that made Spice and Wolf a good anime for me, so Horo it is. Cute and playful; beautiful and cunning. I shall sacrifice an apple to her!
Rena is an autovote for Group 12. Omochikaeri!

I know I shouldn’t be this happy, but I am SO relieved that Conan and Gintama characters didn’t make it in. It’s been said yesterday that Hina and Tomoyo needed at least 2k votes each in order to both get through, and they pulled it off. It’s unfortunate to see Kana go, but Haruka and Chiaki are off to the 2nd round.
