Yesterday's results:
- Bowser > Chrom, 23-3
- Zelda > James Sunderland, 15-8
- Dante > Ganondorf, 13-12
- Gundham Tanaka > Lara Croft, 13-9

My thoughts:
- Most importantly, votals were significantly stronger yesterday than the past six days.
- Bowser's clearly in it to win it, with the biggest blowout of this contest to date against a character who (despite his seed) shouldn't be among the weakest in this field.
- Sunderland's fans turned out early; he was tied with Zelda through the first six votes, but ultimately, avoiding the doubling is about as much as he could have expected in this format, with this level of turnout.
- Dante was smoking Ganondorf early, but the latter came back and almost made it a really good day for the Zelda series. I choose to chalk this up more to Ganondorf not being an ordinary low seed than to Dante being a fruitcake, though.
- Gundham beat Lara in a match that looks decent for both sides. Can he actually contend closely with Dante next round?

Ganondorf deserved way better, in both of these contests :\

SFF

Would Chrom really be the type of character who would get SFF'd much here, though? I feel like our Fire Emblem fanbase is somewhat distinct from our Nintendo-at-large fanbase.

Also, here's yesterday's results:
- Spyro the Dragon > Nathan Drake, 14-8
- Shulk > Zidane Tribal, 12-8
- Kazuma Kiryu > Yuna, 14-9
- Yuri Lowell > Captain Falcon, 13-8

My thoughts:
- All four percentage margins were rather similar, and yet only one of these four matches (Shulk v Zidane) went roughly as expected.
- That first match in particular is rough, but Spyro has proven that he's a Board 8 powerhouse quite a few times before, so a close win wouldn't have been too surprising. It probably didn't help that I had to label Nathan Drake just 'Drake' in yesterday's match title.
- Two consecutive FFX characters have now been on the bad end of upsets in matches they (probably) shouldn't have had any business losing.
- I figured Yuri v Falcon would be a very close match despite the seeding disparity, in part because people seem to have soured somewhat on Vesperia.

Yesterday's results:
- Miles Edgeworth > Miles "Tails" Prower, 16-6
- Pikachu > Max Caulfield, 10-7
- Vivi Ornitier > Raiden, 10-9
- Tali'Zorah nar Rayya > Velvet Crowe, 9-7

My thoughts:
- It's trend city today! Max (who ultimately looked respectable in her defeat) and Raiden (who almost pulled off a huge upset) were comfortably leading early, while Tali didn't take the lead until the late end of her match with Velvet.
- Unfortunately, Edgeworth was not nearly as effective in terms of pulling in votes as Phoenix.

Yesterday's results:
- Big Boss > Kratos Aurion, 15-8
- Revolver Ocelot > Chloe Price, 13-6
- The Boss > Undyne, 17-1
- Luke fon Fabre > Tifa Lockhart, 13-9

My thoughts:
- All the winners set the trend early, and three of the losers attempted to come back later on, but to no avail.
- On the other hand, Undyne just rolled over and, well, died. Wow.

Yesterday's results:
- Kanji Tatsumi > Proto Man, 13-6
- Ike > Rydia, 10-9
- Kefka > Wakka, 14-7
- Wheatley > Ellie, 13-7

Not a jolly good show for Ellie, who had a substantial seeding advantage. Meanwhile, Ike didn't take the lead until a late 3-vote surge. There's not much to comment on with the other two matches.
