Love it or hate it, a lot of pixels get devoted to crowning anime's most moe lady. The International Saimoe League Championship, a primarily English, but avowedly global spin-off of Japanese 2ch's moe tournament, has given its 2013 heavenly tiara to Gokō "Kuroneko" Ruri from Oreimo after an undefeated season that included a final round default of defending champion Tachibana Kanade.
