Maya's already +30kish, no? And she's only used 2 sigils out of a 4 syllable name. Guaranteeing 4 wins, each for a significant number of points, is pretty good, and she seems skilled enough outside...

I thought it had been pretty clear that all 4 are new. But Jindai, while the 'heart' of the team, isn't quite a GM type.



Despite how it seems, there aren't that many national-class players...

They're pretty clearly Shindouji+ (hopefully...) given that they were already compared to Shindouji in the manga itself with FunaQ's analysis that their Aces are better than Shindouji's Aces.

Yuan is a bad player. And Usuzan is a bad team.

I haven't seen much complaints in this respect. Kiyosumi itself came out of nowhere. And in any case, Harue isn't a good coach so much as a good scout. Makes sense given that Harue's in her first...

Toyone has 3 confirmed abilities (Tomobiki, Senpu, Shakku) that we've seen on screen. Given her theme, she should have 3 more to play with. Her 'first' ability, going by priority of date, would be...

Very cool. This would mean though that Saki was pretty set on eliminating Eisui... Although if I had a choice, I would too if only because watching Nodoka vs. Hatsumi was harrowing, esp. without Sae...

I really liked the expanded moments on Hiroe. Gave her some depth to back up that arrogance. She really is a cool Captain in her own way, accurate in her prognosis of her teammates' strengths and...

Well, they're a mystery team, but they're only really viewed as Nodoka and friends by the media. Several teams have been paying very close attention to them due to Kiyosumi defeating Ryuumonbuchi....

I don't find that particularly strange though. The big problem with Teru is that the flow will constantly go her way, but even she takes longer to build hands as the required points go higher. A...

Players could, yes. Kyouko's reading and play is based off that concept. But Saki's probably reading the nebulous 'flow' rather than the discards given her tendencies. I imagine she's just hijacking...

If they think it's possible but not necessarily. Remember everyone shares the honor tiles so you can still win through yakuhai (if not a large win), pinfu, or tanyao. In general, Saki's tsumo aside,...

She needs 4 calls to get to her 'lone tile.' That is, if she has a completed set, she can't get to a single tile at the end (she'll have 1 + 3 = 4 tiles) so she discards a tile from her completed...

It doesn't require that for her power. The dragon triplet is to ensure that she has a yaku in order to be able to legally call a win, esp. if she's going to recklessly call in different suits with...

I apologize. had forgotten Nodoka started off with that 12k win. A yakuman in 1st hanchan of East 4 leads to Kiyosumi dropping to 3rd and only a 14,600 point gap.



Perhaps. I would like to...

I don't 'neglect' it. Without Sae, Hatsumi's hand is not sealed. IIRC, she was in iishanten but got several rounds of worthless draw after worthless draw with Sae there. Without Sae, I judge that...

Heh. Hisa was a bit vague with her warning. But to be fair, singling out Hatsumi would lead to Nodoka bristling and refusing to listen (SOA). Trying to get around that by suggesting two wind pons may...

One yakuman basically wiped out all point gains - and losses for Hatsumi - more or less. It really is that big. If she had been able to get another (i.e. Sae gets tired earlier), Hatsumi basically...
