The bottom team are actually all foreigners except for the glasses girl.

Names in romaji:

The people from shirai todai high school (Winners of the west tokyo regionals):

Oohoshi awai (1st year) (complete with galaxy and stars background like powers to go with her name )
Shibuya Takami (2nd year)
Matano Seiko (2nd year)
Hirose Sumire (3rd year)
Miyanaga Teru (3rd year)

Rinkai all girls from East Tokyo (even the name implies that it is a school for foreigners living in Japan)

3rd year:
Tsujigaito Satoha (meganekko, the sole japanese)
HaoHei Yuu (1st year)
Megan Davin (3rd year) (girl with tan)
Cheemyon Fa (2nd year) (girl with the umbrella, she's French but got a Kanji name that doesn't sound Japanese. Yay.)
Nelly Virsaladze (1sty year, token loli)

Eisui all girls (winners of the Kagoshima regionals):

Usuzumi Hatsumi 3rd year (the local loli, who actually made her opponents in the regional finals go in the negatives before the Taishou round with a yakuman, most probably a small four winds?)
Karijuku Tomoe 3rd year (the only girl with a normal uniform)
Iwato Kasumi (3rd year, girl with the long braids)
Takimi Haru (1st year, with the ponytail)
Jindai Komaki (2nd year, meet the other monster )

Some things we learned in this chapter:

I think that's somewhat common these days... Umineko is full of people with this style of name. And of course, there's always Marisa Kirisame (霧雨 魔理沙).

Btw, Nelly would be so fitting inside Touhou.

BTW Megan Davin is American for all the westerners who need a character to project themselves to. . HaoHei Yu is from Hong Kong.

I was just thinking a bit ago that the one thing Saki needs is foreign/half-breed characters. My prayers have answered, it seems.

So perhaps the foriegner team will each have mahjong powers derived from the types of mahjong played in their home countries?

Like, the american one will do the Charleston, and hong kong one will have flower tile powers and the french one... wait, I don't know of anything particularly special about european mahjong rules...

Yup, they even kalled Jindai Hime-sama and were talking about not burdening her like last year and keep winning themselves.

Momo fans will be particularly happy with the third-last page.

Well, the direction this is going certainly intrigues. For once it doesn't seem too linear anymore.

And the individuals has been thrashed.

Not that I mind, cause this means a 2nd season is one step closer.
