I was bored, so I took a quick look at the current round in ISML 2010. This will actually be the first time I’m participating and casting some votes.
The current round didn’t have any really difficult pairings for me. I noticed that Saber, Rin, and Illya were all there. Saber and Rin were easy picks, but unfortunately for Illya, I like Mio more.
Here’s what I voted:
ARENA 01: [Tōsaka Rin] Ikaros
ARENA 02: [Fujibayashi Kyō] Maria
ARENA 03: [Sakurano Kurimu] Fujibayashi Ryō

I mostly put a bias in favor of characters from more recent series, and characters from series that I actually know.
On the Rules page, I saw the schedule and was surprised at the large number of rounds. Thus, I probably won’t be posting about this again until the finals.
So until then, let’s see how far Saber can go!
