ISML 2021 was the 14th edition of the International Saimoe League. The tournament's nomination round began in 2021 July 01 at 00:30 UTC and ended with the final results revealed on 2022 February 12. The returning champions were 2012 Main Tournament winner Kanade Tachibana, and 2012 Male Exhibitions winner Kirito.

Like the previous year, the main tournament used the three splits regular season format, but the number of contestants for this year were reduced to 72. An additional wildcard round was also added at the end of Split 3. However, the most significant change in this edition is the re-introduction of the Stella and Nova names; but they will no longer carry the same definition as they originally were used from 2012 to 2015: "Stella" will now refer to the actual main tournament, while "Nova" will be used for the seasonal contests. Despite this name change, this wiki will keep using the "main tournament" and "seasonal contest" terms instead of Stella and Nova.

While ISML has a history of dominant contestants who have completed perfect seasons, this year was the first in its history to have both champions be undefeated, as newcomer Elaina and two-time runner-up Sakuta Azusagawa topped the regular season with a 35-0 record over three splits, and later won the Tiara and Scepter over Mikoto Misaka (in her 4th finals appearance) and Yuuta Togashi (first-time finalist) respectively.

The latter stages of the playoffs were characterized with fervent attention and drama mostly coming from Chinese netizens. The semi-finals in particular had several incidents, such as a member of Elaina's fan group shit-talking Mashiro Shiina after winning against her, and an appeal being sent by an Ai Haibara fan group which resulted in a vote increase that directly switched the result of the seasonal playoffs in her favor. These incidents culminated in a large vote spike in the final match - going from ~7k votes to ~23k - as thousands of netizens from multiple fan groups canvassed to their families, friends, colleagues, and associates in order to help their favorite character win. Likewise, the results of the final were met with violent and chaotic reactions in the ISML Tieba forum and in the official Discord server, particularly from frustrated fans who blamed multiple parties for the loss of their preferred candidate.

The seasonal playoffs, which were named "Divine Circlet" and "Divine Crown", were won by Keke Tang, a Love Live! idol character hailing from Shanghai, and Tanjiro Kamado, protagonist of a mainstream shonen anime who was put into seasonals because he appeared in a series of Valentines Day-themed web shorts.

Rules[]

For more details regarding the seasonal tournament (aka nova) nominations, click here.

How to Nominate[]

For those unfamiliar with isml's nomination system:

  • nominations will last from July 1 to July 8
  • Each voter is given a ballot with 32 entries. To nominate a character, simply type its name AND its series. Name order / spelling / language / aliases don't matter as long as it's clear who you're referring to.
  • Each nomination counts as one vote. Duplicates are obviously not counted.
  • All characters must make their animated debut on June 30, 2021 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, i.e. Not counted.
    • Must represent at least eight (8) 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 them all because they can't choose.
    • Invalid entries are discarded independently and will NOT void your entire ballot unless it fails to meet the minimum requirements above.
  • ISML champions from 2013-2020 CANNOT be nominated because of the champions ban rule; they will be placed in a separate tournament of champions instead. They are as follows:
  • Some contestants can only be nominated for the main tournament if they achieved any of the following within the last 3 editions:
    • Last 3 returning ISML champions (2010-2012)
    • All necklace and pendant winners from 2018-2020 (regardless if the made the playoffs or not), as well as seasonal diadem winners from the same timeframe
    • All contestants who have appeared in the playoffs at least once from 2018-2020


Direct invites[]

A total of 19 females and 16 males will automatically qualify for the preliminary rounds, thus they do NOT need to be nominated.

Results[]

For full Winter and Spring nomination results, see its relevant page. To view nomination results by anime, go to the results page.

The main tournament, which is renamed to "Stella" for this edition, will consist of at least 120 contestants per gender.

  • Subtracting the number of directly qualified contestants (19 female and 16 male), this means that only the top 101 females and 104 males will advance.
  • If multiple contestants are tied for last place, they will all advance together.


Selection process[]

This year's nomination round will use only one list per gender for selection of its main tournament, Winter, and Spring seasonal contests. Because of this, characters will be selected in the following strict order:

  • Top 30 females and top 6 males who appeared in Winter 2021 anime (including OVAs and long-runners) will be assigned to Winter seasonal first; and likewise for Spring 2021. This includes eligible characters who have appeared in past ISML editions.
  • After all seasonal slots are filled, the remaining contestants will be assigned to the main tournament.
    • Because of the increased character debut limit to June 1, it's technically possible for a 2021 debutant (example: Nagatoro.png Nagatoro-san) to qualify to the the main tournament instead of 2021 seasonals.
  • Unlike ISML 2020, all qualified contestants (including direct invites) will play in the preliminary rounds to decide who gets in the regular season.


Qualified[]

This table will display the nomination results for the Main Tournament. In addition, nominees who have enough votes to qualify here but were re-assigned for Winter and Spring are also shown, with reasons outlined below.

New qualified nominees are labeled in bold.

Preliminary Rounds[]

For more details, see ISML 2021/Preliminary Rounds.

The preliminaries' format is completely changed compared to last year's as expected. This time, 120+ qualified contestants, including direct invites, will play two stages of differing formats to determine the 72 characters who will compete in the regular season:

  • Round 1: Each gender is split into 3 groups of 41-42 players. Approval vote (choose any number per group)
  • Round 2: Split into 12 groups of 10-11 players. Each group is limited to a maximum of 3 choices only.


After this period, contestants will be ranked based on the following criteria:

  • Lower average rank points (ARP)
    • [(Rank in R1) + (Rank in R2 x 4)] divided by 2
  • Higher Nomination votes (Direct invites ranked higher)
  • Higher cumulative vote points (CVP) earned in the preliminary round


Top 72 characters will qualify for the main tournament and will also double as seeds for the first split, and the rest are eliminated.
In this page, this section will only display the names of eliminated characters; the qualified characters are shown in the next section below.

Regular Season[]

To view the group draw, detailed tables, and the results of all regular season matches from each gender, see ISML 2021/RS Female and ISML 2021/Male

The regular season's format is similar to the previous edition --- divided into 3 splits, but the number of contestants were reduced to 72 for this year. Each split is subdivided into one or more periods. In each split, contestants will be divided into several groups that will play a single round-robin tournament. All periods will last for 6 match days (5 regular season + 1 gem round).

Tiebreakers:

  1. Wins (if tied, draws will be counted)
  2. Head-to-head record
  3. Split CVPD
  4. Split CVP
  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).


Example:

  • 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: 72 players are split into 12 groups of 6.

  • Top 5 advance to Split 2
  • All 6th placers will be put into a Wildcard round, Single-transferable voting (STV) format. Only the top 4 will survive to Split 2.
  • Bold: Advanced, Italic: Wildcards.

Split 1 Wildcards[]

Single-transferable vote (STV): Voting and counting method is similar to Instant-runoff (rank 1st-8th); the only significant difference is that instead of deciding 1 winner, it's 2 or more winners.

What is Instant runoff voting (IRV)?
Instant-runoff voting - Voters rank the contestants in order of preference, from 1st to 8th. Alternatively, a voter may choose to abstain voting for a contestant. Abstained contestants will NOT receive your vote during the entire counting process.
  • Results start by counting the each contestant's first-choice votes in the first round.
  • If a contestant gets a majority (more than 50% of total votes), they will immediately win the award.
  • If there is no majority, then the contestant with the least amount of votes is eliminated. Those who voted for the eliminated character as their highest choice will have their votes transferred to their next-highest choice (2nd, 3rd, etc.) for the next round. This process repeats until either a majority is declared, or there are only two contestants left.
  • When a voter's choices are eliminated before the final round, their vote will be exhausted, which means that their vote will no longer count for the remaining contestants.


EXAMPLE: Suppose a necklace match happens between Saber.png Saber, Rem.png Rem, Megumin.png Megumin, Holo Holo, Emilia.png Emilia, Shiro1.png Shiro, Tohru dragon.png Tohru, and Cc.png C.C.

  • Our example voter chooses Saber.png Saber as his 1st choice, Rem.png Rem 2nd, Megumin.png Megumin 3rd, and Holo Holo 4th, and ABSTAIN for the other girls.
  • Saber is eliminated in Round 1, so in Round 2, his vote is added to Rem's tally instead.
  • Megumin loses in Round 2, and those who voted her as first choice will have their votes transferred to their next highest choices. Our example voter is unaffected.
  • Surprise! Rem goes out in Round 3! Because Megumin (3rd choice) is already out, his vote will be transferred to Holo (4th choice) instead.
  • Round 4 eliminates C.C.
  • Round 5 eliminates Tohru.
  • Round 6 unfortunately spells the end of the road for Holo, leaving only Shiro and Emilia to contend for the necklace.
  • Since our voter abstained for the remaining contestants, his vote will not count towards either of them, i.e. exhausted. If we consider their interests, the result will not matter to them because all of their choices are out.

Gem Rounds[]

Necklace & Pendant[]

After each period, the eight best performing characters will play each other in a special Instant Runoff voting round that will decide who wins that period's necklace (for females) or pendant (for males). Once a contestant wins a necklace / pendant round, they will be banned from future main gem rounds for the rest of the year. Gem winners will also qualify for next year's main tournament provided they don't win the tiara / scepter beforehand.

Qualifying Criteria:

  1. Period wins
  2. Period CVPD
  3. Period CVP
  4. Staff selection
What is Instant runoff voting (IRV)?
Instant-runoff voting - Voters rank the contestants in order of preference, from 1st to 8th. Alternatively, a voter may choose to abstain voting for a contestant. Abstained contestants will NOT receive your vote during the entire counting process.
  • Results start by counting the each contestant's first-choice votes in the first round.
  • If a contestant gets a majority (more than 50% of total votes), they will immediately win the award.
  • If there is no majority, then the contestant with the least amount of votes is eliminated. Those who voted for the eliminated character as their highest choice will have their votes transferred to their next-highest choice (2nd, 3rd, etc.) for the next round. This process repeats until either a majority is declared, or there are only two contestants left.
  • When a voter's choices are eliminated before the final round, their vote will be exhausted, which means that their vote will no longer count for the remaining contestants.


EXAMPLE: Suppose a necklace match happens between Saber.png Saber, Rem.png Rem, Megumin.png Megumin, Holo Holo, Emilia.png Emilia, Shiro1.png Shiro, Tohru dragon.png Tohru, and Cc.png C.C.

  • Our example voter chooses Saber.png Saber as his 1st choice, Rem.png Rem 2nd, Megumin.png Megumin 3rd, and Holo Holo 4th, and ABSTAIN for the other girls.
  • Saber is eliminated in Round 1, so in Round 2, his vote is added to Rem's tally instead.
  • Megumin loses in Round 2, and those who voted her as first choice will have their votes transferred to their next highest choices. Our example voter is unaffected.
  • Surprise! Rem goes out in Round 3! Because Megumin (3rd choice) is already out, his vote will be transferred to Holo (4th choice) instead.
  • Round 4 eliminates C.C.
  • Round 5 eliminates Tohru.
  • Round 6 unfortunately spells the end of the road for Holo, leaving only Shiro and Emilia to contend for the necklace.
  • Since our voter abstained for the remaining contestants, his vote will not count towards either of them, i.e. exhausted. If we consider their interests, the result will not matter to them because all of their choices are out.

Exhibition Gems[]

Exhibition gems, officially known as "Jewelry Exhibitions" are secondary gem awards which are held alongside the main gem rounds under the Exhibition title. The awards are purely cosmetic; they have no effect on a contestant's season standings or future qualifications. Exhibition gems will be contested between eight next-best performers of each period who have never won any ISML award before - or in the case of later periods - those with fewer awards. Voting format will be the same as the main gem awards (Instant runoff vote).

Qualification Criteria:

  1. Fewer ISML awards
  2. Older year of first ISML award win
  3. Period wins
  4. Older ISML debut appearance (preliminaries or regular season; male exhibitions do NOT count)
  5. Necklace / pendant ranking (PCVPD then PCVP)
  • Contestants who are already eligible for a period's necklace / pendant round CANNOT participate in that period's exhibition gem round.
