Match Results: Fate Testarossa: 304
Ryuugu Rena: 269
For winning MAL Moe, Fate has now joined the elites of moe (past champions in the club character list).
This has been quite the tournament and running it was really fun. I am pleased to see so many of you particitpating in such an event. The tournament has been interesting though for the most part predicatable. Never the less, it was quite interesting to view how the results played out using this type of voting structure. Seeing Fate win it all was a no brainer since I had her as my pre-tournament prediction. Rena making it to the finals on the other hand, was a complete surprise. Seeing her take out Shana and Kagami was not expected. Having Kagami make it to the final would've been interesting to me since she was my pre-tournament moe pick.
It was also nice to see a lot of discussion in the main thread and reaching 3000 posts (if you include the first thread that was deleted). Though I guess a lot of it was mostly my moe>your moe arguments, celebration and despair (5 pages dedicated to the epic Kagami-Nayuki-Hinagiku-San match), this is a popularity contest posts (I hope you all realize that all these tournaments are pretty much popularity contests and the only differences between them are structure and demographics), KyoMoe (once again, demographics and way too much anit-this anti-that, just pick your moe) and in general bickering.
Last but not least, I would like to thank the following people for making all this possible (I apoligize in advance if you helped out and were not mentioned).
Once again, congrats to Fate for winning MAL Moe.
For those interested, here are all the moe match images used and the winning Rena pic if she had won
Mai lost ;.;
Though I'll have to agree that Fate is slightly more Moe than Rena, at least.
Hopefully Mai will have another chance to make it into the characters list in the future... as unlikely as that is D:
I'd say the same for Misaki, but I doubt NHK will ever be popular enough amongst this demographic.
Also, Good Work on Running MAL moe, Faust et al. ;)
I'm glad it was Fate since it couldn't be Mai, Nayuki, Sayuri, Kagami, or SHANA or... who won. Thank you everyone for helping, and THANK YOU FAUST for making this whole thing possible, really. Same time next year? ^o^
