Just someone who found Saimoe to be fascinating.
Also, I do not claim to be an expert of any sort; I do edits out of a desire to contribute using my limited experience editing on other wikis (including Wikipedia).
Editing is a learning experience for me, so please forgive my mistakes if any; although I will always try to make sure I do edits correctly.
I also edit on Touhou Wiki using the same name, you can find me on either one but I'm retiring from editing on the old one.
I edit on Wikipedia under a different name.
I post on the AnimeSuki forums using the same name here minus the numbers.
I have an account on MyAnimeList as well, currently updating my lists.
The Anime Saimoe Tournament became known to me sometime in 2007, but I only started following the tournament's progress in its later stages (during Quarter Finals) and I did not participate in voting. The outcome of the Tournament was pleasant for me; I rooted for Rika despite not voting.
The following year, once again I followed the tournament's progress, starting from the middle of Round 3, and started voting during the Block Final matches, but stopped following when all the characters I supported were eliminated (following the conclusion of the Semi Final round).
Skipped Saimoe 2009, due to the discovery of Touhou and low personal interest in anime released that year. The outcome of the tournament was a nice surprise, however, as Taiga was one of the characters I liked and knew.
For 2010, I followed the tournament's progress starting from the middle of Round 1 until the end of the Final Match and the end of the Tournament. Azusa won, resulting in a relatively good end despite the loss of all favorites.
- Voted a grand total of 8 times for 2010.
- Votes spread across 8 different matches, 3 matches in Round 2, 2 matches in the Block Finals, 1 match in the Quarter Finals, 1 match in the Semi Finals and the Final Match.
- Voted to support a character in 6 matches, Anti-voted against a character in 2 matches.
