The 2011 Lapis Scepter, given to the winner of the 2011 International Saimoe League Male Tournament, goes to Code Geass's very own Lelouch Lamperouge.

Lamperouge won the Scepter after defeating Hideyoshi Kinoshita 2155-2076.

"I have to thank, first and foremost, C.C. for being the flagship moekko that she is," Lamperouge said at a victory luncheon in Tokyo. "Without C.C., Code Geass would lack any relevance whatsoever. But there are so many others I would also like to thank on my campaign team. There are too many to count.

"I accept this scepter as a symbol of my hard work as the star of Code Geass and wish the contestants who will participate in the 2012 International Saimoe League all the best."

In the third-place magtch, Gintoki Sakata defeated Keima Katsuragi 2161-1997. Kyon was fifth after routing Izaya Orihara 2546-1616. Edward Elric was seventh after burning past Tomoya Okazaki 2214-1937. Accelerator finished ninth after defeating Koyomi Araragi 2241-1714 and Yuzuru Otonashi was 11th after defeating Kakashi Hatake 2468-1672.

There were a number of other exhibitions that took place.

While Homura Akemi did win the 2011 Anizone Best Moe Tournament, she will have some work to do if she is to qualify for the 2012 International Saimoe League after dropping an exhibition to Ruri Gokou to the tune of 2130-1870. Astarotte Ygvar did well to finish in the top eight of the 2channel Anime Saimoe Tournament, but a 1856-1514 defeat to Kyouko Toshinou might probe problematic when the preliminaries officially take place in January.

In other exhibition results, Hideki Hinata routed Naoi Ayato 2352-1334, Youichi Hiruma crushed Kou Kitamura 1857-876, Keehi Mihael defeated Trancy Alois 1767-1581 and Terumi Afuro cruised past Ichirouta Kazemaru 1523-836.

With this, the 2011 International Saimoe League season is officially over, and the nomination period for the 2012 season will be in the works next month. Stay tuned to the Bedlam on Baltic Avenue and for continuing coverage of the International Saimoe League.
