Sakuno! Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!! !
Low totals all around, but it's expected. Now today on the other hand...

Picks: Yumi, Hinagiku, Arata
Predictions: Erio, Hinagiku, Yuu

I like Yumi, so I hope that the Saki match might boost her votes. However, the gap is likely too big to overcome Erio, even if Denpa Onna hasn't done well. On strength alone, Hina should have an edge on Sanya, but you never know....

If Sanya is winning (even with fakes) then poor Hinagiku getting trolled again.

Sanae and Charlotte won as most probably expected. Neither really had much trouble but I thought Charlotte would do a bit better. I'm glad to see Sakuno did well. Cordelia seemed to have been a fair bit weaker than I expected.

Non-top tier Saki characters haven't really shown much fight lately. Erio looks much stronger than Yumi on paper and I don't expect Yumi to overcome that. Sanya should be quite strong but unfirtunately Hinagiku should be even stronger. While Hayate characters seem to be on a decline, Nagi and Hinagiku have tried to show they are exceptions. So far they've been successful. Hinagiku won't have an easy time with Sanya but a win would help promote the image that she's still got it. The third match isn't even the first three way match with 3 Saki characters. Hatsumi is out the the runnig and Yuu should be a fair bit stronger than Arata. It's unfortunate that the Saki fanbase has to kill off one of it's own strong characters this early. Arata probably could have made a run at reach Round 3 in most other positions.

Votes:
Kajiki Yumi
Sanya V. Litvyak
Matsumi Yuu

Predictions:
Touwa Erio
Katsura Hinagiku
Matsumi Yuu

It's Hina's year! If she could only make it past the second round then season 3 popularity might kick in, although it looks like she's having some trouble with only 55 votes after 3 hours in such a huge matchup.

Looks like with three Saki matches, even the weaker Saki is getting a boost over Erio and Hiro.

So many possibilities as to why Hinagiku would lose...
- All the Hayate reps, other than Nagi so far lost.
- She does have the most prelim votes in the group which could make her a threat. (But Sanya and even a resurgence of Im@s (Yayoi) could give Saki trouble)

It's not season 3. It's a remake.

A three way mah-jong match? That's weird. Wait a minute... is Momo playing?

I am aware, just stuck in the habit of saying it since before we knew it was a new story.

There is such a thing as 3-player Mahjong. Just go to Tenhou. However, 3-player is lame.

Yes, I know. I play Mahjong. That's why I contend that no respectable -Saki- character would play 3-player Mahjong.

Joined your Mahjong group, btw.

I shouldn't have doubted Yumi on a Saki day...
Don't worry Hina, there's always next year.

Picks: Kurumi, Ringo-chan, Taiga
Predictions: Kurumi, Hibiki, Taiga

Would Saki fans try to get Kaori in to pair up with Yumi against Sakuno in R2?

The only consolation..... if there is one, is Hinagiku will always be credited with reaching the top 4 in 2008. Only a handful ever reach the top 8.
