Plus, the whole Izumi have arrogance despite her defensive play not beating Nodoka in the Middle School championship. Seriously, how she managed to get a big head, when her defensive play was beaten by Nodoka not at full strength, or thinking that she's the best 1st year, despite being on the team that came 4th last year.

I disagree, only Seiko is the one who I can find as being deemed as doing badly. Sumire and Takami kept their lead, while Awai was able to comeback. And I still stand by the fact that she would have won if Ryuuka and Himeko didn't effectively have their autowin buttons.

The most ridiculous joke for me in side A semi-final is Achiga still won with normal skill and nearly no strategy there accept Kuro sisters. Ako, Arata, Shizuno played normal mahjong. Shizuno's power can null special power but it doesn't help her played better Ryuuka is great with normal mahjong. I know normal mahjong is very dangerously and absolutely can win. But it need a good brain and diverse strategy not just sit there and win like Achiga did
Achiga did have a strategy though, their team plan, was better overall team synergy then the others, which showed itself in the Semi-finals, when it brcomes clear, Senriyama put to much emphasis on its vanguard or how Shindouji put its emphasis on the Mairu/Himeko double ace.

So it really wasn't just them sitting there and winning.

Strategic decision to make Yuuki lose more points, since she's the dealer?

Lol, an unstopable monster now has to sit there and see the brainless Achiga tsumo and win thanks to the plot amour. However, I really love the way Teru think and give out the strategy on the table. That's the way top players should be, both Teru and Satoha did. They don't just rely on their special power. They think and find out way to win.

I hope Yuuki can do something more in the rest of the east round before she turns on defend mode. And I really want to see more combination power during this final math. We saw Yuuki and Hisa (Nodoka should be included because of the cat she gave Yuuki), Kuro and that stupid fog. I'm curious what the combination of Shiraitodai. And I don't think Rinkai will have it cause they just gather strongest player around the world to form a team.

Let's see why the ex-coach of Shiraitodai want to choose the strongest team instead of gathering strongest players to form a team
P/S: Oh wait, Teru can still keep Tenpai if she discard 9 sou instead of Haku. Why?

Not really brainless, fact of the matter is, Toki is the only player who has a 100% guarantee of ever being able to stop someone else from Tsumoing, cause of her powers, and even then, sometimes she just can't stop a Tsumoing.

Also, I remembered something, just thought I'd share it. The whole Achiga being weaker then Senriyama is kind of wrong, simply because its more, cause of the way the two teams are laid out, Kuro gets placed up effectively her worse match up, since Toki is able to get clear reads on Kuro's winning hands, with her future site.

And, yes sure the Red Dora make Kuro's hands more predictable, but here's the thing, Kuro is still normally able to win through Tsumo sometimes, even with her hand being easier to read, cause after all simply having a more predictable hand, doesn't mean you can't win.

So really, Kuro doing okay here makes sense, since no one is outright blocking her.

Also, don't expect Kuro to start a winning streak, she's probably going to get a counted Yakuman through 12 Dora, then we'll have Teru and Satoha do their thing, and effectively bring the scores back down to the start.

Anyhow, I wonder what this fog means for Kuro, probably have something to do with dragons, since the dragons that are drawn around her are Eastern Dragons. Maybe just a more effect dora magnet now?

It's her fault anyway. She should have planned it better.

The match was framed by Toki's point of view due to her actions, so of course there were gonna be more flashbacks to contextualize why she was making such an inhuman effort to fight Teru when she could just be content with avoiding direct hits and probably get better results that way. The flashback also helped to build up tension.

Read Toki manga. Izumi was always a cocky idiot.

They all lost many points. They're jobbers, there's no way around it. And the only one with autowin button was the monkey.

All Achiga had is the strongest plot armor.

Did Komaki participate in last year's individual tournament? She's participating in this year's individual tournament so she should have participated last year too. But if she did then that means Satoha was able to rank above Komaki. This proves that Satoha is monster-level player despite not having supernatural ability.

Yuuki has the number 1 and 3 players in the nation wetting themselves in the east round! Never thought I would see this to be honest.

Not yet! Yuuki Time isn't over just yet!

Combining Yuuki's hero attitude with the strategizing happening between Teru and Satoha really brings back the sense of intensity I got during Achiga-hen. More, please!

Also, Saki, please, at least try to study your opponents.

Got to give Yuuki props for being so dangerous it's taking Teru and Satoha teaming up with each other to stop Yuuki from just flat out slaughtering them to death in East 1 and ending the game there. Our little Taco Munchkin has become quite fearsome indeed when she's at the peak of her power like this.

Well, It wasn't all of Yuuki's power to be that strong. It's the combination of Yuuki's east power and Hisa's bad wait (may be a little of Nodoka due to the plushy cat she gave Yuuki)
But the south round is coming and we're going to see what can Teru do?

Anyway, I really love what Teru and Satoha did, actually almost Teru. She couldn't win but still control the battle. That's the way top players should be. They think and give out the strategy along with their super power. They're not just sit there and say "I'll try my best" or "I'll try for everyone in the team"... and win thanks to the plot amour

And we still got another East round to go! I doubt they are looking forward to that but I sure am.

Well now that the East round is over, Teru is going to start getting aggressive now.
