ISML 2020 was the 13th edition of the International Saimoe League. The competition began in 2020 July 1 and ended in 2021 February 10. The returning champions were Mikoto Misaka and Lelouch vi Britannia, champions of the ISML 2011 Main Tournament and Male Exhibitions respectively.

The tournament's regular season, which was contested by 96 characters, underwent a major overhaul as it was changed into a three splits system: Split 1 involved groups of six, while Splits 2 and 3 lasted 3 periods each, and was contested between groups of 16 contestants. This year also saw the return of the preliminary rounds, which are meant to reduce the number of qualified nominees to fit within the regular season's capacity, and the exhibition gems, which are contested between the best performers of each period who have won fewer (or zero) ISML awards.

As with most ISML tournaments, 2020 was characterized by the clash of several voting factions representing popular shows; in this edition it's between Kaguya-sama, Raildex, and Oregairu, who benefited from having new seasons airing that year. These shows earned the lion's share of gem awards as well.

The female division ended with Yukino Yukinoshita winning the Tiara against Misaka, foiling the latter's quest for a repeat championship just after she was unbanned from the champions rule. Coincidentally, the final match happened at the eve of the Chinese New Year, so the results were timed to release on the midnight of February 11 in Beijing Time. The event resulted in a massive amount of attention in the ISML Tieba forums mostly due to Chinese Railgun fans wanting her to win a second tiara, and also caused the official ISML Discord server to receive an influx of new users who are just here to see the results.

Meanwhile, the male division was dominated by Kaguya-sama's male protagonist Miyuki Shirogane, who led the tournament in nominations, voting numbers, and percentages, and finished the regular season undefeated and untied. He defeated Bunny Girl Senpai's Sakuta Azusagawa, who was making his second consecutive finals appearance, by just 30 votes to secure this year's Scepter, making him the third male champion to complete a perfect season and becoming the first-ever debutant to achieve such a feat regardless of sex.

Major Format Changes[]

Preliminary Period

  • The preliminary round and seeding rounds return in ISML 2020 since its last appearance in ISML 2015. Unlike in 2015, these rounds will have a completely new format.
  • Preliminaries are split into two rounds, which are contested between characters who scored low nomination votes. The exact range of rankings for each round vary per gender. Voting format is the usual approval and range voting used in multi-man matches.
  • The seeding rounds are also held at the same time, which will determine each contestant's seeds that are used to group the contestants in the regular season. These seeds only apply to Split 1 (the first group stage). Again, same voting format as the preliminary rounds.

Regular Season

  • Participants increased from 72 to 96.
  • ISML 2020's regular season still use the single round-robin group stages. However, the number of stages were dramatically changed; it will use the Three Splits format instead of the seven periods last year.
    • Split 1: Aquamarine. 96 characters are split into 16 groups of 6 members.
    • Split 2: Topaz, Amethyst, Sapphire. 64 characters are split into 4 groups of 16.
    • Split 3: Emerald, Ruby, Diamond. 32 characters are split into 2 groups of 16.
    • As a result of the change, the wildcard rounds were reduced to just two: at the end of Splits 1 and 2. No wildcard round is given after Split 3 since only the top 8 characters from each group will advance into playoffs.

Exhibition Gems

  • Lesser counterparts of necklaces and pendants. Last seen in ISML 2014, the exhibition gems were finally re-introduced this year, with males being awarded these gems for the first time in ISML history.
  • They will use the same format as the main gems: instant-runoff voting (IRV).
  • Before the tournament proper, there were several suggestions made for the potential names of male exhibition gems from each period, such as "Dog Tags". The staff ultimately decided to assign just a single accesory for each gender: Bracelets for females, and Rings for males.


All voting rounds begin and end at 10:00 UTC (18:00 Beijing, 06:00 New York). Results are displayed ~12 hours after voting ends. Assuming there's no delays, each round will last 3 days from voting, results, and waiting time. Gem rounds last ~5 days.

    • Preliminary Round 2: Females ranked 65-82, and males ranked 73-90.

    2. ISML Career Main tournament wins
    3. Newest anime media release
    4. Staff selection

  • nominations last seven days

  • All characters must make their animated debut on December 31, 2019 or earlier.
  • Ballots must fulfill several important conditions in order for their nominations to be counted; failure to meet all of them will result in a voided ballot.

    • Must represent at least eight (5) anime series (spin-offs and crossovers do not count as separate series)
    • Must nominate at least two (2) males and females each
    • Four (4) characters maximum per series/franchise. Don't exceed this limit, otherwise the staff will discard all of these characters because they can't choose.
  • ISML champions from 2012-2019 CANNOT be nominated because of the champions ban rule; they will be placed in a separate tournament of champions instead. They are as follows:
  • Female: Kanade.png Kanade Tachibana, Ruri Gokou Ruri Gokou, Kotori Itsuka Kotori Itsuka, Eru.png Eru Chitanda, Shana.png Shana, Megumi k.png Megumi Katou, Rem.png Rem, and Violet.png Violet Evergarden.

  2. Originally appeared in Fate/Zero, but was primarily nominated for his eponymous role in the Lord El-Melloi II's Case Files anime .
  3. Enkidu's name was changed to Kingu (Enkidu) during the tournament because of revelations in Fate/Grand Order: Babylonia's plot. The Saimoe Wiki will display his name as "Enkidu", scare quotes included.
  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 Three-way tie for last two spots. Sasuke qualifies because he has at least one win in ISML main tournament, while Inosuke and Dio both have zero. The last spot was resolved by using latest anime appearance: Inosuke (2019) > Dio (2015).

Regular Season[]

To view the group draw, detailed tables, and the results of all regular season matches, click here.

The regular season is divided into 3 splits, with each split subdivided into one or more periods. Contestants are divided into several groups that will play a single round-robin tournament. Every period lasts 5 matchdays, with the exception of Aquamarine, which lasts 8 matchdays (but a contestant still plays 5 matches in that period).


  1. Wins (if tied, draws will be counted)
  2. Head-to-head record
  3. SCVPD (Cumulative vote points difference, split only)
  4. SCVP (Cumulative vote points, split only)
  5. Staff selection
What is VP, VD, CVP, CVPD, etc?
Starting from ISML 2016, a new stat called Vote points (VP) was introduced. Contestants earn vote points after every match, and is calculated by dividing their votes by the average of all votes done during that round.
  • Votes = Player's votes
  • TV = Total votes (Add ALL CONTESTANTS' votes in that round, including the player)
  • Players is simply the total number of contestants in a particular round. Pairs are considered as one contestant.

Once VP is found, Vote point difference (VPD) is then calculated by subtracting a character's VP from their round's opponent.

  • Since these values are calculated on a round-by-round basis, they will need to be added up, hence the CVP and CVPD (the C stands for "Cumulative").
  • In ISML's tables (and by extension, this wiki's), CVP refers to the contestant's currently accumulated vote points for the entire regular season. The same is also true for CVPD.
  • Some letters may be added before CVP to indicate a certain stage only: PCVP - period, SCVP - split (for 2020).


  • Suppose Luffy.png Luffy wins Aquamarine Round 1 against Ash Ketchum Ash Ketchum, 6969-4200. A total of 72 contestants participated, and the total number of votes during that round was 777,777. Using the above formulas, we get:
  • For Luffy: = 0.645 VP (rounded to thousandths)
  • For Ash: = 0.389 VP
  • Once we found their VP, we can now calculate their VPD by subtracting their VP against each other: Luffy: 0.256 VPD, Ash: -0.256 VPD.

Split 1[]

Aquamarine period. 96 players are split into 16 groups of 6.

  • Top 3 advance to Split 2
  • Top eight 4th placers based on necklace / pendant criteria will advance as well.
  • The remaining 4th and 5th placers are relegated to Wildcards
  • Sixth placers are outright eliminated.
  • Table Legend: Bold (Green) - advanced, Italic (Cream) - wildcards. Un-formatted names are eliminated.

Main Tournament

  • Thanks to a perfect storm of Railgun T's broadcast and vocal support, Mikoto Misaka's performance in 2020 is the most successful a returning champion has ever done, having won a necklace and reaching the finals.
  • After winning the Ruby necklace round, Mashiro Shiina set a new record for most necklaces with 8, breaking Shana and Kanade Tachibana's previous record of 7 necklaces.
  • Mashiro's semi-final streak was broken after she lost in the quarter-finals to Mai Sakurajima, her first such loss since her debut in ISML 2013, and second overall. Quarter-finals is her worst result, a testament to how consistently powerful Mashiro is in the tournament.
    • This doesn't come without notice however, as the ISML Tieba had a loud and mixed reaction when the results were released.
  • A Certain Magical Index and Kaguya-sama have the most number of awards won for this year, with 5 posters each. However, Kaguya-sama is the most successful overall because they won the Scepter (male championship).
    • Toaru / Raildex (5) - 2 main gems Touma.png Mikoto.png, 3 exhibition gems Kuroko.png Index.png Ruiko.png
    • Kaguya-sama - 3 main gems Miyuki shirogane.png Ishigami.png Kaguya.png, spring seasonal Kei s.png, Scepter Miyuki shirogane.png

Vote benchmarks: The following contestants were the first to exceed a certain number of votes.


ISML icon used in 2020.

Enkidu name change

  • During the Aquamarine period, the name of Enkidu fate.png Enkidu from Fate/Grand Order was changed to "Kingu (Enkidu)" after several fans and an ISML Tieba thread sent complaints claiming that the character displayed in the icon isn't really Enkidu, but a different character with an identical appearance named Kingu. The claim was primarily based on the differing eye colors between the two characters: in the game's official art, Enkidu is depicted with green eyes, while Kingu's eyes are purple. In addition, these characters are considered different because of plot reasons.
  • In this wiki, the character will be named "Enkidu" (with quotes) to reflect this change.

The former Amethyst bracelet poster.

Amethyst bracelet poster change

  • During the playoffs, the poster for the Amethyst bracelet was changed due to possible copyright concerns. The former image used a fan art of Yui Yuigahama made by the user @yamazacky (やまざき), and originally posted on Twitter. The original lmage can be found here. The poster was changed to another Yuigahama picture from the official Oregairu materials.
