Saimoe 2009 Winner
Congratulations to Taiga, winner of Saimoe 2009.
2009 is the Year of the Taiga, as she follows up her victory in Best Moe with a Saimoe crown. Yui gave it her all, but fell a bit short 1332-1278. The vote count ended up being higher than last year.
There were lots of memorable moments in this year’s tournament: Mio’s early ouster by BOSS, the manipulation of Asahina Mikuru, Maria winning a match, Block G (also known as the “I thought ties were rare” block), Saki romping through the brackets but losing when it counted, Louise being herself, and of course, Taiga’s double crown.
I’d like to thank frustra for all the result postings and posters, Seishi and the folks over at Lunatic Antics for their wild predictions opinions, kevo for the in-depth tabloid-style coverage, ando for inspiring me to become a Saimoe info junkie, and the 2ch poster-making anon guy for doing what he does best.
Thanks for following Saimoe 2009. I hope you have passionately supported your favorite characters, discovered new characters and series and enjoyed the tournament as much as I have.
See you again next year!
