How does the draws for the individuals work? I just hope they get paired up early and not in the finals so we can shift focus to other players.

To top it off, Nodoka's past connection with Achiga and Saki's connection to Teru should be enough to make this year's final almost legendary.
I support the idea that Kiyosumi will go to the final round as 2nd place.

Someone need to teach Saki that she isn't invincible.

Her face looks parallel with Awai. The only differences are in hair and eye color.. and uh, not to mention that Shizu's bangs is hiding her right eye while Awai hiding her left eye.

..Not to say it means anything though. At least Shizu looks pretty cool in that picture.

Yey... I can post again.

Nice poster. It looks like the Side-A semifinals is going to be epic. Btw, any news on additional episodes or they are really going to stick to 3 episode?


Anyway, back to the discussion... My bet for the Side-B tournament is Kiyosumi and Rinkai then.

Rinkai has scary credentials. In paper, I would easily consider Rinkai to be a 'rigged' team. Seriously their team composition is ridiculous. The newcomers have distinguished themselves in international tournaments. Their sole Japanese player is ranked third in the individuals. Then, Megan, the only player that is on Rinkai's lineup last year, was able to hang with Cold Touka. I would be very surprised if they don't dominate.

I don't know about Uzusan, but from the brief glimpse we have of their quarterly match - it seems like Rinkai was curbstomping them. Though, this is admittedly at the center match, it is possible that Uzusan put their best players at the end.

On the placement of the team. It wouldn't really bother me if Kiyosumi will get second for this match. Kiyosumi getting second for the semi-final may heighten the tension more for the finals. Of course, it also won't bother me if Kiyosumi gets first place either. It may even give the media a clue that Kiyosumi isn't a one-woman Haramura Nodoka team. That their members are all national level and perhaps in some cases above that. That they are actually a legitimate contender in this tournament.

Regarding Saki though, I think there is no need for anyone to teach her that she isn't invincible. In my opinion, Saki has the opposite problem. From her last match, I have a feeling that Saki still continues to overestimate her opponents. An example would be when Kyouko accidentally blocked her kan at the beginning of the match; I am willing to bet that Saki believes Kyouko did that deliberately.

What Saki really needs is perspective. That and a healthy dose of self-confidence so she doesn't falter in the middle of the match.

A huge number of cuts? Over 500? I wonder what that's supposed to mean.

Yeah, I don't get it, but I'm pretty sure it's not cutting out scenes in the manga to fit 3 episodes. Right?

It means more animated scenes, so they're really trying to squeeze and fit the matches into 3 episodes. Meaning it's going to be awesome!

Match is tightening. Can become 'anyone's game' now. Good work Ritz on that front as it leads to a 'Will they/Won't they" easier.

Spoiler for Saki-Achiga full Poster:


Also, I have news! Terrible or great you guys decide.

Anyways, manami, the VA for FunaQ is not reprising her role as FunaQ since she wants to focus on her singing career. The one replacing her is Misawa Sachika, otherwise known as Kuroyukihime.

For one, I'm glad. I love Misawa Sachika but I feel like her voice is too serious for FunaQ and a lost opportunity for her since she could have voiced one of the many characters coming up in Zenkoku-hen (I can picture her as Toyone or Kyouko). FunaQ already had a few lines, and I think that FunaQ have better and more lines in the new episodes but still, I feel kinda disappointed or so. As I said, I like FunaQ.

I guess this is an aftermath if you cast 4/5 members of Senriyama as StylipS.... the other 1/5 wants to have a singing career too.

Lol... the VA casting is certainly inspired this time....

So Funaq is Kuroyukihime
This should be good. I am now intensely curious how she is going to handle certain scenes.



Anyway, to undoubtedly better news. Someone informed me that Achiga ep 14 runtime is listed as 60 min on Amazon. No extras mentioned so this one could be double length for real.

This is very deeply relieving for me since I'm wondering how they are going to animate all those contents in just 3 episodes.

If you guys want to confirm it this is the link....

Well, I haven't heard of it but I just hope so! I don't want the episode be rushed! Why can't they just make 8 new episodes? Then it'll make Achiga-hen 20 episodes.

Also... something shocking. There has been an ongoing joke that the reason why Ritz kept having delays and hiatuses is because she was busy molesting Igurashi. Well...

Spoiler for something lewd-ish; though not nsfw:

Chapters out.

Another pretty damn good chapter. Almost all of the vice-captains looked good here except for Seiko. Good to see Toki is okay and calling for Ryuuka. Awai has a strong ability. Really looking forward to more of the captains match.

Translations for achiga are finally out, and this has to be the first time I feel a 60-so page chapter of anything feels too short.

Spoiler for Chapter 17:


I also have to mention the cover.

Spoiler for Spoiler:


By the way, did no one else notice (or at least mention here) that in the latest Saki chapter (the main manga I mean)
