Hazuki, Nana, Sakura and Kano & Rena
Of those, I find Nana and Kano to be the most moe. I hope at least one of them moves on.

So we aren't dividing by East and West at this point?
Alright, let's see...
Hazuki. I don't understand how Riku got this far and managed to beat some of ther other opponents. That needs to stop now.
Nana. Nothing against Shana, but I've only seen the first two eps and Nana easily beats her in moe.
Eruru. It's the animal ears and tails. It's so cute.
The last one is a had choice. Kyon's sister is cute, but due to such minimal screentime and zero character development, Loli-in-a-bag isn't enough at this stage. I saw a little over half of AIR back when it aired and Kano is all right, but I like Chikaru and Rena much more. Chikaru vs. Rena is were the decision gets tough. I like the Psycho Cleaver Girl, but Chikaru is made of so much win. Hell, she has her own harem. It's a tough choice, but I'm going to go with Chikaru.
Edit: Oh, shit, I didn't notice we could double vote in the 4-way match and now I can't vote for Rena too. :cry:

Western: Hazuki and Nana
Eastern: Eruru, and I'm abstaining from the 4-way battle royale for the time being.

It just keeps getting more difficult...
Hazuki (Moon Phase) - I like Riku much more as a character, but Hazuki is easily more moe...
Nana (Elfin Lied) - Another toughie...Nana by a hair.
Sakura (Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle) - See above - just replace Nana with Sakura.
Chikaru Minamoto (Strawberry Panic!) and Kyon's Sister (Mel. of HaruSuzu)

And so the field ever more narrows..
Match 1: Hazuki. Riku's had a good run, but she doesn't have that much moe per se, whereas Hazuki is literally dripping with moe.
Match 2: Nana. This was a hard one for me, because both are very very moe in their own ways, but Shana's standard tsundere is no match for Nana's futile hopefulness that makes you want to scoop her up and hug the everloving bejeezus outta her.
Match 3: Eruru. If we were going by manga, it would be Sakura, but we are not. Anime Sakura gets on my nerves a lot and I really wanna keep supporting Eruru's Cinderella story.
Match 4 (Moe Battle Royale): Imouto has been in this far more than I exepcted her to go. The one-trick pony needs to hit the stalls. Now comes the hard part. Rena, with her "kana kana", her penchant for kawaiigasms, and her thoroughly creepy yet seductive psycho-moe mode make her one of my choices flat out. So now it's down to Kano vs. Chikaru. Kano is indeed moe, and not just any kind of moe. Key-style moe. The kind of moe that brings a tear to your eye and wants you to cheer her on as she faces unbelievable (and unimaginable) tragedy. Despite this, I thought Kano was the weakest of the Air girls. On the other hand, Chikaru-oneesama is the shining star in an otherwise unrespectable MariMite ripoff, and she has a loli yuri harem. She was the front-runner for moe in a series that should have delivered a lot of it. For these reasons, and for comforting little uke girls with sock puppets, my second choice goes to Chikaru.
1. Riku, and it's no contest (for me, anyway). Hazuki tries too hard, and that's not cute.
2. Shana, but this one's also close. I guess Nana lost out because I thought Mariko was the awesomest Diclonius.
(Not qualified to discuss 3 or 4 because I haven't seen the shows.)
