The 2012 International Saimoe League Preliminaries rolled on with Day 6 of Phase II, or Match Day 11 of the entire Preliminary Period.

In Nova Group 1, Elucia de Lute Irma defeated Yuuko Shionji 3070-2167 and Astarotte Ygvar 3070-1022. Misaki Ayuzawa defeated Sana Inui 2474-1872 and Poplar Taneshima 2474-1812. De Lute Irma will have a hard time figuring out Aria Holmes Kanzaki, who blew past Sora Kasugano 3031-2102 and Aoi Kunieda 3031-1212.

Stella Group 1 favorite Louise Francoise Le Blanc De La Valliere scored victories over Fuuko Ibuki 3039-2164 and Chii 3039-1268. Nymph took out Tsukasa Hiiragi 2912-2340 and Evangeline A.K. McDowell 2912-1150. Tsumugi Kotobuki, meanwhile, recorded wins over Lucy Heartfilia 3240-1848 and Suigintou 3240-1322.

Meiko Honma rolled past Sen Yarizui 2798-1862 and Ai Nanasaki 2798-1862. However, Honma is likely to wait until Phase III to have a shot at punching her ticket. Kurisu Makise, one of the two favorites in this group, took down Minami Shimada 2931-2305 and Tsurara Oikawa 2931-1189. The other favorite is Riko Mine, who shot down Aoi Yamada 3197-1820 and Yune 3197-1096.

Tipped by BoBA as the winner of Stella Group 2, Shinobu Oshino swallowed up Ami Kawashima 3348-1852 and Alice 3348-1241. Nagisa Furukawa scored victories over Yui Kotegawa 2985-2279 and Kallen Kozuki Stadtfeld 2985-1104. Kuroko Shirai wasted no time in dismantling Isumi Saginomiya 2920-2131 and Amu Hinamori 2920-1253.

Nova Group 3 is going to most likely come down to one of three candidates: Ayase Aragaki, Shouko Kirishima, and Yozora Mikazuki. Aragaki took down Dalian 3166-2046 and Mahiru Inami 3166-1014. Kirishima whipped past Laura Bodewig 2896-1937 and Minko Tsurugi 2896-1452. Mikazuki rolled past Tomoka Minato 3149-1989 and Minene Uryuu 3149-1140.

Nagi Sanzen'in was all business in Stella Group 3, crushing Erza Scarlet 3231-2050 and Ai Haibara 3231-957. Index L. Prohibitorum rolled past Yin 3298-1596 and Misuzu Kamio 3298-1335. Group favorite Tomoyo Sakagami cruised past Mikan Yuuki 3087-1944 and Asuka Langley Soryuu 3087-1373.

There are three candidates in Nova Group 4 that have an excellent shot at winning it all and sealing a spot in the show. Haruna knocked down Tsugumi 3278-1910 and Chihaya Ayase 3278-849. Mizuki Himeji leveled Ayumi Takahara 2743-1748 and Hinata Hakamada 2743-1636. Kyouko Sakura speared past Ika-Musume 2820-2222 and Hakase Shinonome 2820-2222.

In Stella Group 4, Kotomi Ichinose rocked Rei Ayanami 3304-1637 and Utau Hoshina 3304-1637. C.C. outlasted Ritsu Tainaka 2880-2435 and Chrome Dokuro 2880-1185. Konata Izumi, picked by BoBA to win Stella 4, curbstomped Nanoha Takamachi 2913-2203 and Ayu Tsukimiya 2913-1177.
