ISML 2012 was the 5th edition of the International Saimoe League. This edition marked the beginning of the Nova / Stella era, a time where the main tournament was split into two separate divisions of 36 girls: Nova Division for contestants with 2 ISML appearances or less, and Stella Division for contestants with 3 or more ISML appearances. The matchdays were reduced to just 35, split into 5 periods of 7 matches. Since the number of periods was reduced, which corresponds to necklace awards, the gem order was completely re-arranged.

Meanwhile, the postseason was expanded into 2 phases: the first is the division playoffs, which involves a single-elimination bracket contested between the top 16 contestants within each division, with the bracket winner claiming one of the two remaining gems renamed as "circlets". The second is the tiara playoffs, from which the quarter-finalists from each division will battle it out in another single-elimination bracket for the right to claim ISML's grand prize.

Kanade Tachibana defeated Eucliwood Hellscythe in the Tiara final, capping off what is arguably the most dominant season in ISML history. The Angel was the first champion to complete a perfect season: she posted a 35-0 record in the Nova Division, and then won all of her matches in the Nova and Tiara playoffs, with the majority of her wins being blowouts. On the other hand, the defending champion Mikoto Misaka was eliminated in the Tiara quarter-finals by Hellscythe.

In the male exhibition tournament, Sword Art Online protagonist Kirito won the Scepter after dethroning Lelouch in the semi-final and defeating two-time finalist Hideyoshi Kinoshita in the title match.

The seasonal diadem was introduced in 2012, which is contested between females who appeared in anime broadcast between each season of the year.

Aquamarine[]

Every single one of the necklace match contestants in Aquamarine period happened to have 7 wins, with Aisaka Taiga at the very advantage high SDO of 91.718, 3.651 higher than the next highest SDO holder Nakamura Yuri . It seemed that she shouldn't have much trouble to obtain her third necklace. But Kanade Tachibana proved that her overwhelming strength, which had smashed every single opponent that stood in her way and left her with low SDO, was just enough to cancelled out her low SDO disadvantage. With Shana also in the match to split the votes of Kugumiya Rie fans, Taiga missed out on the Aquamarine Necklace by 0.554 points and the first Necklace of 2012 goes to Kanade.

Amethyst[]

Knowing that if she get this necklace, she will be the first contestant in the history of ISML to obtain the same necklace three times in a roll, Nagato Yuki fought hard in order to make it into the necklace match. Aisaka Taiga once again held the advantage of having the highest SDO and this time she was determine that the recent lost in Aquamarine necklace match would not happen again. But for Taiga, there was also Shana , her Kugumiya Rie sister who was also aiming at this necklace to set one step further into completing the collection of seven necklace.

Ruby[]

After suffering a bitter defeat in the last period from Nagato Yuki , Mikoto Misaka showed us that she still had the power of a former champion by taking down 7 wins, defeating the former Ruby necklace holder Shana and landed herself a place in the Ruby necklace match with the highest SDO. Despite having tough opponents such as Aisaka Taiga , this time without Shana to split the votes from Kugumiya Rie fans, and some new faces from Nova division, the match was completed one sided towards Mikoto. At the end of the match, not only Mikoto gained the Ruby necklace, she also broke the record of highest votes earned in a necklace match and became the first champion to obtain a necklace after gainning the Tiara.

Emerald[]

Former Emerald Necklace winner Aisaka Taiga found herself unable to defend her previous necklace after a narrow lose to Mikoto in Round 7. The new Haganai girl Hasegawa Kobato was lucky enough to have strong opponents who were weaker than her in the first 6 round and held her lead in SDO, only to be completely smashed in the last round by the quiet, white-hair necromancer Eucliwood Hellscythe , who then took her place as the highest SDO holders. With three tough opponents already out of running after gaining their necklace, and two strong K-ON girls splitting the votes among the K-ON fans, Eucliwood easily snatched the Emerald Necklace and made it her second necklace.

Topaz[]

Knowing that the Topaz necklace was the last possible necklace, ISML veteran Shana was desperate to protect her streak of at least one necklace each year, smashing high SDO holder Saber and Taiga in the last two round and put them out for running. But that action also allowed her weaker Kugumiya Rie sister Kanzaki H. Aria to gain a place in the necklace match and snatch some votes away from the Kugumiya Rie fans. With 2010 champion Akiyama Mio holding the highest SDO and was determine to follow Mikoto's footstep of getting a necklace after gaining the Tiara. Shana's power was not enough to close up the gap between the odds of SDO and Mio successfully gained the last necklace of the year.

Bracket[]

Phase 2 started off straight away with a brutal match up of Regular Season Nova 2nd seed Eucliwood Hellscythe against Regular Season Stella 2nd seed Shana , where it marked the first time ISML veteran Shana lost a match so early in a fight for Tiara. This was also an early sign for Eucliwood's later overwhelming strength of continuously defeating two strong Stellas, this year's Ruby Necklace and Diamond Anklet winner Mikoto Misaka on the Quaterfinal and Aisaka Taiga who was then the only Stella left standing on the Semifinal. While Nova 1st seed Kanade Tachibana continued outblowing her opponents like she'd done during the Regular Season, showing no mercy to prevent the same fate from last year happening to her again. The final day came with the top 2 Regular Season seed from Nova facing off each other, after a long day, Kanade took down Eucliwood with the decisive 9064-4485 and became the new Tiara Winner, taking her sorrow from last year along with it.
