So the preliminaries are over and the draw for the final bracket layout is today, the tournament starts on August 3rd on 2ch. As soon as the final draw is out, I can start building my shit based on who I am going for this year, likely tonight, or whenever the good anon that runs AnimeSaimoe.org puts up the chart. I’m experimenting with a crude HTML-based chart this year for tracking the favorites, and then switching to a graphic-based chart for the finals, but we’ll see when we get there.
As for the blog updates, as to not spam your shit on a daily basis, for the main rounds, I will be doing week recaps on Saturday of what happened during the week, and once the finals come around, will go to two updates a week, probably Wednesday and Saturday.
Gonna put this out right now, I have everything down on Nanoha, but it’s gonna be a tough call this year with other fan-favorites like K-ON!! Somehow, Saki and Hayate the Combat Butler are also in this year, so expect another Saki-rush this year much like last.
Edit: AnimeSaimoe.org has half of it up, including the bracket layout for the tournament. I have already finished an XLS of what I am pulling out of this year. Compared to last, the pickings are slightly thin, but a lot of heavy-hitters and many honorable mentions. I’ll be putting together the graphical HTML tonight, and assuming Google Docs will host it, I will be adding that up there tonight.
In case the bit.ly link dies at any point (which I will be sure to change in the doc itself) refer to this permanent link
Go Team Nanoha… which is sadly only Nanoha, Fate, Alissa, and Suzuka.
Second Edit: ASorg chart is now live. Many thanks to the anon(s) who run that site for data needs!
Third Edit: HTML-based chart for my list can now be found here. Let me know if anything looks weird or you cannot see it, still new to Google Sites somewhat.
