***

As expected, Nagi and Lotte are good enough to take out their challengers. For Lotte, it was sweet revenge for Asuha’s demise in the hands of Sherlock. For Nagi, this puts her on a tie with Nanoha for first place in the all-time wins list. Oh,  and that doesn’t include her 4 preliminary group wins. She’s really, really good.

For a non-Saki day t, this was fairly unexciting, albeit some (rather obvious) fake votes did spur some hope of shenanigans happening. Not today, though.

Predictions: 2-0 (13-1)

Picks: 0-2 (Sherlock, Madoka) (5-9)

On Deck:

Second day in a row without Saki characters involved, and this time at least one match might generate some excitement – Yune vs. Yayoi.

Yes, Shizu’s loss opened the gates in the race for the Block C crown, and Yune and Yayoi look to be two of the solid contenders in that billing. Yune established herself after defeating Erica in one of the closest matches in Round One, while in contrast, Yayoi showed some serious firepower in dismantling her foes. Someone’s gotta give though, and I have to give the edge to Yayoi. Precure might have struggled after a stellar start, but Yayoi is their ace and I’m sure she’ll give Precure fans more reasons to smile after this match is over and done with. Yune and Ui will make this a  match instead of a cakewalk, however.

As match as a Makoto fanboy that I am, her match against Louise has a strong possibility of being a cakewalk in the latter’s favor. The Kugimiya conglomerate hasn’t shown any cracks in the armor yet and I am convinced that the expected result of this will change that view. In addition, this is a prelims round rematch, wherein Louise finished much comfortably ahead of Makoto. So yeah, it looks like Louise will be the a fitting end-boss to Nagi’s shot at history, and nothing short of a miracle will deny us that.
