This result is confirmed.
Nothing out of the ordinary again, as expected of the first few matches of this round. Toki with another brilliant performance, close to 60% of the votes again, slowly but surely building up to what should be a scintillating match against Akari (if the latter performs her part of the bargain).
Kobato had a little bit of trouble against Inami, who had a puncher’s chance in this one anyway, but the more-favored little sister prevailed in the end.
Predictions: 2-0 (4-0)
Picks: 1-1 (Remon) (3-1)
These two wins now set up the first two Block Semis matchups. Poll time!
Tsukasa’s pretty much out of the equation for A2-3, it is apparent that this match will go down to Yuuki vs. Reika. The latter having significant odds stacked against her. Tacos may not be the strongest Saki nor the strongest KugiRie, but she’s still a potent weapon from both sides, making her the easy favorite here. It will be one of the most beautiful day ever for Precure if Reika makes out of this one alive.
Moving on to one of the most anticipated match-ups of the Round: Akari vs. Azusa (feat. Run). I mentioned many times that this will be a passing of the torch, but Akari will have to earn this one. It’s easy to tab her as the favorite, but Saki’s presence in this match day will make things a bit trickier. There will be an attempt to take out Akari here to essentially lock up Toki’s quarterfinal berth, but the legendary kindness of Akari won’t deny us. Akari vs. Toki needs to happen. Badly.
