i also feel kind of bad for sora. but not enough to vote for her.
the thing is, if a character is the 50th seed in the regular season, that makes them seem pretty pathetic because there are 49 names to compare them to. but if a character doesn't make it to regular season, there are many more names they can be compared to and people just don't want to bother. so the characters who were really close to making it in are sometimes considered better than characters that made it in but performed badly.
