Akira/Vanessa - Akira. Come on. It's Akira.
Mina/Julia - In this Namco matchup, Mina, but barely.
Tiffany/Taki - I'm going to be against my darkhorse and say Taki.
Shiki/Sophitia - Shiki. Trust me. You can't beat the third most loved "SS" character that easily.
Ivy/Talim - Hate to say it, but Ivy.
Kasumi/Rain - Kasumi. It's hard to vote against her.
Ayane/Lei Fang - This is a toss-up, but Lei Fang will end up being the better "DoA" girl.
Kyouko/Tracy - Poor Tracy. Kyouko easily wins here.
Akira/Mina - Akira. Mina's worst scenario is her being a 3 to 1 underdog, but she will put up a fight.
Shiki/Taki - Both have style, but in the end, Shiki will win this.
Shiki/Tiffany - Shiki. My darkhorse got real lucky, but you can't rely on luck after the first round you know. So, yes, that means Tiffany is the first "JG" character out, even though I would have liked to see all "JG" characters in the semi-finals.
Ivy/Kasumi - Ivy. However, if there's an underdog that can knock out Ivy, it's Kasumi.
Kyouko/Lei Fang - Fantasy: Ivy and Lei Fang will create a Touma Yumi-san semi-final. Reality: Kyouko. Unless a miracle happens, poor Lei's "Cinderella" story is over, ending the "DoA" run.
Akira/Shiki - Akira. However, Shiki's the only character I can think of that can prevent Akira from being the favorite to win it all.
Kyouko/Ivy - Kyouko. You will actually see a "JG" final.
Akira/Kyouko - Akira wins the all-"JG" final.
Akira/Shiki - Okay. This is where I can't say that I should kick myself for making these matchups now. I have to vote here.
Anyway, both have style. Both get a lot of love. However, in the long run, Akira gets my vote mainly because she's my favorite to win. If Mina won instead of Akira, then I would have voted for Shiki and adding on, she would have been my third favorite to win it all, behind Akira and the person I'm about to use my other vote on.
Kyouko/Ivy - Kyouko gets my other vote because I do want to see that "Justice Gakuen" final. Plus, I'm not much of an Ivy fan anyway.

Jesus... these tournament threads are getting vicious... A lot of my favorites have been shot down, but I don't see any reason to get angry about it.
Indeed, they have been vicious. Ironically, the top four favorites of mine to win this tournament are in the semi-finals. All of my top four favorites that I want to win are in, except for Talim. (She's the one I wanted to win it all, but she faced Ivy who is no easy hill to overcome.) So, I guess I'm in good shape. Even if none of my top four personal favorites made it to the semi-finals, I wouldn't be so angry about it either.
The comments don't seem THAT vicious to me, but I guess it is natural when things get heated up closer to the closing of an intense tournament. Which probably says a lot, since people only gets heated up for things they care about.
