This is a big mystery for me too. Considering how their powers work, they probably didn't discover the abilities while they were playing in their clubroom. Could it be that they discovered them in the middle of a competition?

Lesson learned... don't go monster-slaying in the presence of another monster because it's not just very dangerous but you could also find yourself in a world of hurt... to go up against monsters is to be a monster yourself or you'll just going to be another peon to be sacrificed...

Tell that to Kyouko and Satoha too. Did they give up after their last year's failure? No sir, they come back this year stronger than ever. In fact, there are larger number of monster slayer wanabes than you might've imagined and although the idea may sound foolish, you have to give them credit for even dare enough to made such a bravado attempt especially to those who can put up a good fight like Shisu is doing now.

But of course, unlike most shonen manga the protagonist of this story happens to be a monster player so...

I think Satoha is more "monster" then "monster slayer"

When Fujita Pro say that "but the rules this year almost seem like they're a system for shifting out the most special kids from the masses", the silhouette shown is Saki, Koromo, Choe, Satoha and another one which I can't identify

Those are changes made to the DVD version of the series.

The BD later on had more changes, specifically the ED of the 25th episode.

This is the same image, amended in the BD version:

Bad news. Ritz had been hospitalized and is taking a one month hiatus. It's still unknown whether or not we'll still be getting the next chapter this February but, yeah.

She's on the hospital to ogle at nurses orz

It's not like we didn't expect this but... D:

Get well soon Ritz. Is sadly all I can say at this juncture. I hope it was not from all that overwork the work has given her that has brought this on.

Too much seclude herself at her room.
Being hikkikomori also has a drawback.
Don't forget eat a nutritious food Ritz!!!
And do some sport.

Hmm... I wonder whether this will affect the release of Achiga's last chapter (which is contingent on whether Ritz was already done with the script or not.

Moreover, will this affect an air date of anime version?

Ritz is a total hikikomori, so one time she goes out of her house to do some research, she got into an accident.

On another note, here are some known facts about Ritz:
1) She draw a manga with yuri subtext -- a rarity amongst women mangakas.
2) She's a hikikomori who always works inside her house. To the point that she communicates with her assistants and editors (and Igurashi) via email.
3) She's looking for her father who walked away from her when she was a child.
4) She lives in a haunted house.
5) She likes big boobs. (The recent chapter where the chapter lost toner halfway was because she spent too much time inking Nodoka's boobs that she missed the deadline)
6) Her favorite character is Nodoka, her self-insert is Arata and she has homophobic parents like Kokaji-pro.


Also: If anyone here read/watched Bakuman, you should know that the mangaka doesn't affect the production of the anime and the script for the manga had already been written long ago. However, during the original airing of Saki in 2009, Ritz went on hiatus to help with the anime production, so it was a good thing.

Now, ponder this, this means that Igurashi will be making the decision on who's going to the Finals. If Ritz had no say in this, which school do you think Igurashi would choose?

Not sure if I should take this seriously (the second part).

.......

That explains quite a few things.

I don't think anyone beside Ritz will have power to make decision on that.

Even if he can, it is Ritz who will have to think the plot in the main series. Do you think Ritz will want to write the story with something she didn't choose?
