Is there the blondie girl's name in the end credit? I can't read japanese.

Whoa, they even gives us a teaser toward Shinohayu.

Yeah I kinda agree with Nelly = barren. It's like she's different type of monster from the others we have seen before. Those eyes makes it look like she has no soul. While Teru gives off an air or overwhelming, seriousness, no-nonsense mannerism, Nelly feels more like she's completely devoid of any form of emotion.

EDIT: It seems Nelly (barren desert theme) and Sawaya (splitting the sea theme) could be a bad match up.

True, but I'm refer to Megan as part Rinkai team members. All of Rinkai got their teaser PV except for her which could mean that she may do poorly in her match or that she has no superpowers or doesn't really stand out much in her match. So naturally I was a bit worried since I'm cheering for Rinkai.

Guess I can sort of see that, since Sawaya is looking like she's going to be the star of the 4th round. I don't think they showed Yuuko or the 2nd round Usuzan member as well, or at least Yuuko.

So, I guess this totally conforms one thing. No one goes broke in the 3rd round hehe

As if there ever was a doubt, Ritz may do a lot of trolling but she was forced to show Kyouko Vs Saki round 2.
The true surprise would be that Usuzan would be the one to stop Choe's hands

Nelly and the desert power is pure speculation for now, to be fair.

Two things caught my eye in ep 13 that were not clear in the manga. One was the wheelchair scene in the flashback was in a fire, not underwater, as I had previously assumed the manga illustration was depicting.

The second is that the VA for the blond kid who could not walk and needed to use the wheelchair sounded a LOT like Awai's VA. If so then it confirms a tiny piece of the puzzle that was guessed at but never affirmed afaik.

Huh? I had been under the impression that Maya was the captain and Sawaya the vice-captain. Welp.

Has it been credited to Chiwa Saito though? Also the girl in the wheelchair had the distinctive Miyanaga horn. Awai... doesn't.

Nope - nothing confirmed as far as I know, and nothing said about the blond being a blood relation per se. Was only pointing out the the VA sounded a lot like the VA for Awai, something that cannot be conveyed (obviously) in the manga. There were some who speculated it might be Awai back when she first appeared in the manga. If they are the same then that may be anothe piece of the puzzle.

No more, no less. ^^

Blondie's eyes are red (you can just see them in the photo), so there is no possibility of Blondie being Awai.

if it's awai? then why doesn't she shown any sign of knowing saki? amnesia? and saki watch the captain match in side A so she seen awai for sure but we haven't had any kind of revelation like she actually knew her.

so I think that girl is someone else but for sure she's a relative, perhaps a cousins in maternal side, maternal side since if the other girl in the picture with a visible face is teru and saki's mom (not another sister) then it was apparent the horn is from their genes, making whomever that adult standing in the back of that girl their mom relative (sister or cousin).

Well yeah, obviously she's related to both Teru and Saki. She's likely a cousin, but if she IS another sister, then well...

Maybe the mysterious girl is not related to the Miyanagas.

Seeing the comments on the nicovideo on the same scene, I'm not sure if I read that right, but comments say the VA was Mai Nakahara herself as the mysterious girl...

Video link for those interested:

As far as I can see Mai Nakahara is only in the credits for Teru, so if she did then they really want to keep Blondie's identity a secret.

What's that sparkling thing on Kyouko's eye? Lol Kyouko officially joins the monster club. So much for self-proclaimed normal player.

To fight monsters, we created monsters of our own...

Usuzan squeaking through the Lieutenants match aside, I just love how the anime end montage just hypes up Maya and Sawaya. Not really impressed with Maya -- it really just makes her seem like the Second Coming (AHAHAHAHA) of Hayarin, it's just trying too hard -- but Sawaya? Really now Ritz?

Kudos for using Glossy: MMM again for the montage though!

Maa, it'll be years before we get to that point anyway, and we'd likely get Shino, Kanna, and Hayarin in high school by then in Shinohayu.
