This is [obviously] not the official site, and is in almost no way responsible for the running of the tournament. The official Saimoe 2012 site is here, but is in Japanese only.
This site aims to provide close to comprehensive coverage of the tournament for the English audience, and eventually act as a storehouse for all of the tournaments from its birth in 2002. For now, please forgive the fact that the backdating is still a work in progress, with rampant broken links and pictures in the older years.
Saimoe has now finished, and Toki Onjouji's clear foresight has somewhat ironically left her as the one left standing over her 288 competitors to claim ultimate victory in a tournament dominated from start to end by Saki. The inevitability didn't lessen the passion and anger from all factions, and once again proved that even in the face of deteriorating organisation that moe is still very serious business indeed.
The database I commissioned is finally online at saimoe.info. Additional statistical features to follow in the future. Check it out.
tl;dr: I came here to vote in today's matches. What do I do?
Saimoe 2013 will not commence until the nomination phase opens at the end of June. The tournament proper will start in early August.

20130425: Not that anyone's likely to have noticed how slack I've been, but I've finally tidied away the previous tournament into its own archive and put the site back into inactive mode. This will last all of a few months before setting up for Saimoe 2013.
Regarding Saimoe 2013, I'd like to reannounce that I won't be covering the tournament in remotely the same depth as previous years. This is partially due to personal circumstances, but largely due to how badly organised the tournament has been in the last few years (the administration, not the results) and waning interest in Saimoe in Japan, on 4chan and from myself. I'll still try to keep on top of a chart and basic website stuff, but I won't care to release results promptly and more complicated updates will be left in the hands of my friend at Saimoe.info. I might do some battle posters depending on popularity, but certainly don't see myself as having the time to do more than a handful.
With this reduced availability in mind, I'm currently working on gathering icons for likely Saimoe 2013 competitors to make it easier to cover the preliminaries.
