Match Day 7 of the 2012 International Saimoe League Amethyst Necklace phase concluded, and Yuki Nagato will aim to complete a second straight defense of her crown. However, viable challengers like Ruri Gokou, Eucliwood Hellscythe and Taiga Aisaka are not going to make this defense a walk in the park.

Here is a recap of Match Day 7 of the Amethyst.

NOVA DIVISION


In the Nova Division, Yozora Mikazuki defeated Ayase Aragaki 4053-3636, Subaru Konoe took out Mizuki Himeji 3853-3589, Masami Iwasawa prevailed over Irisviel von Einzbern 4201-3612, Kanade Suzutsuki squeaked by Fear Kubrick 3573-3469, Elucia de Lute Ima defeated Shiori Shiomiya 3650-3160 and Ruri Gokou routed Kobato Hasegawa 4530-3254.

As Tachibana has already won the Aquamarine, she is ineligible to participate in the Amethyst and other forthcoming necklace matches.

Ruiko Saten and Kazari Uiharu, two faces who have participated in the ISML before but will not take part this year, defeated Kyouko and Sayaka Miki 4545-3206, effectively adding more salt to the wounds of a disappointing maiden campaign for Madoka. Haruhi teamed up with Kyou to complete a sweep for the SOS Brigade in the 4570-3741 win over Shana and Yuuji Sakai.
