  1. A rage against the goddess occurred in the twilight that harkens to the exciting battles of the past (perhaps referencing the new movie), with both contestants gaining over a hundred votes in the final hour. Kuroneko was even able to overcome Madoka at points in the final few minutes, but in the end, the gothic black cat wasn’t able to stop the goddess from advancing. Kuroneko’s defeat may end up casting a pall over the competition for the anti-PMMM group, as this may end up being the third year in a row that a series domination of this magnitude has ended up deciding the competition. Ruri, Ayase, and the rest of OreImo are still eligible next year with the extra episodes that aired in August, and perhaps they may be stronger by then.
    This is the absolute last battle that will not feature a Puella Magi this year and may most likely be the last victory for a member not from that team. Before this quarterfinal round was realized, everyone expected that the UN mediator can break the monotony of the potential Final Four. Yet with a lower vote total than expected, the protagonist without a name has become vulnerable. If “Watashi” slips up again and could not get decent support, momentum can turn against her very quickly. Regardless, she still represents one of the last hopes to knock out a Puella Magi in the end, and her fans have to realize this opportunity is the only one that she can take.
    For Kyouko, the journey to the top has taken a new turn, as she is no longer quite the huge underdog she once was. If the magical girl supporters want to see an easier final, the time is ripe for an upset bid by the genki girl. Kyouko can use this fact to her advantage and prevent the only strong candidate from the resistance from her shot at glory. No matter who advances here, though, the work is cut out for her to stop the juggernaut and salvage a lost year for anyone not supporting the top team.
    I’m hoping for Kyouko to take another upset, but as the nameless girl is stronger, she is humanity’s last hope to advance.

  2. And there you have. the only true hope of killing a shitty Maduka ending to this shitty Saimoe year dashed. Why even bother with this anymore?

  3. That’s how everyone felt last year when Akarin lost, and that’s how everyone felt the year before when Erica lost.
