Most young chess prodigies her age don't break the 1600 ELO rating barrier though.

Something occurred to me yesterday ... and that Shizu is a "Nationals final game equivalent" of what Kana was in the final team game in Saki.

That is, a sort who never gives up and who has bursts of inhuman luck that makes no sense - like when Kana got her kazoe yakuman after Saki saved her from zero points by giving her the chankan in anime ep 17/18....

Shizu's chiitoitoi last match was in that vein, it seemed.

Kana gave up like thrice during her match though. And well, we don't really have a big enough sample of Shizu's games yet to really say anything.

I think the studio gave us a hint of Arata's ability after all. This was not in the manga itself.

Spoiler for image and ability analysis:

Finally started and caught up with this. Gonna butt into the discussion with a random question.

Anyone know who's doing the CR translation for this? I know Quarkboy did the first season, but this time around the translation seems really off, plus there's a lot of non-translation-related sloppiness (confusion of single/double quotes, random italics, line margin/layering issues).

Yeah, very beautiful, due to the fact tha... *an unknown staff is pointing at me, going to chant a spell which sounds like eternal force blizzard.* Never mind.

Pins, and Arata doing a STRIKE! on those poor tiles... heh I would like to do that do, but ... *you know the ED 1 of this show? I got bazooka tiled.* >.<

so when the announcer said that Ako was ignored because 3 of Achiga have weird abilities, I'm guessing that Arata is the third one?

Going back to Eps 1... I realize: it's Kuro who's regarded as the team's ace player. Oh, this team is screwed. (I know I know. Somehow, Achiga will make the final).

Ako is pretty good, and Shizu is perfect for the last spot with her ability to never give up. If Arata steps up her game, I could see them passing to the finals in a not forced way.

Funnily enough, it's Ako who's gotten the commentators' attention, and she's the only one on the team with a middle-school record worth a damn (though in Individuals).

Kuro get "ace" status because of her ability can gain a lot of point (when it work well). If you notice, 24000+ point hand is still rare to see in Saki universe yet she can get it easily (again, when her ability work well).

I'm sure Kuro can get her ability upgrade somehow

Ability upgrade ehh... something like daisangen/shousangen?(Dragon tiles... "Dragon Lord" 1 in a million...(If her ability is constant daisangen/shousangen, it is too easy to read.)) Or if she throw the dora, the ability is not backfired.(Need a catalyst to wake her up...)

Those are the only way to defeat Teru and stop her Teru time.

The series pacing... that had me forget how much time passed from the start of the series -- to the point where they enter Prefecturals. Kuro musta not practiced as hard as Ako.

And thank goodness, Ako didn't grow up to look like Tacos. XD
