ISML 2015: Megumi Katou, Kongou to contest Winter Seasonal Honors

It is official: a Saekano-KanColle final to determine who wins the 2015 International Saimoe League Winter Seasonal Tournament. Preliminaries Match Day 10 concluded, and Megumi Katou and Kongou are the only ones left standing. Katou defeated Yuudachi, 2788-2590, while Kongou edged out Utaha Kasumigaoka, 2742-2618.

It's a battle between battleship and eroge inspiration on the final day of the Preliminaries, Match Day 11, on May 14, 2015. In essence it is also a battle between the visual novel entrepreneur Tomoya Aki and the Admiral of the KanMusu (who, for all intents and purposes, is Kensuke Tanaka). Who will win? Who do you love? Who is more...moe? Vote on Super Thursday online at InternationalSaimoe.com and join the ongoing debate, if you don't mind!
