This result is confirmed.
Cure Peace managed to put in a brave performance against Hisa, but her inferior series support was always going to count against her. The decisive factor in this match turned out to be the initial rush – Hisa opened up with a big lead and Peace had to do the chasing thereafter, eventually coming up short despite a strong finish. Still, she’s done very well for a Precure, a series who hasn’t had a good record over the past few years. As for Hisa, her narrow victory pretty much confirms that she’s the weakest Saki girl left, and it’d probably be too much of an ask for her to proceed beyond the QF.
Saki takes a break today to make way for an intriguing clash between Hinata and Louise. At the start of the main round, I don’t think many would have imagined the Block D finals to turn out like this, but here we are! Supporters of the Rie tsunderes have been pulling the strings in this block, though some of them might probably have shocked themselves as Louise gets a spot at the expense of Nagi. Hinata partly benefited from the tactical voting schemes, as she was able to avoid a tougher clash against Saki’s Mihoko in Round 2. On her own though, she’s done well to beat the Asami duo of Kurisu and Chihaya.
Now, the basketball loli faces the toughest test yet – she once again faces Louise, having met before back in the prelims. On that occasion, Louise ended up having 22 votes more, so there’s not that great of a difference. Furthermore, the result of the Airi-Shana match in the previous round would give Hina a confidence boost, especially since Hina’s a stronger contestant than her team-mate. As for Louise, this being her final year would give her an extra push, but she’ll have to be wary of other competitors who’ll see her as a greater hazard – Louise has always been a thorn for the Saki faction, as shown in the first round when Kyapten got knocked out, and way back in 2009 when she was able to overcome Hisa and Stealth Momo. They might just want to play it safe here.
tl;dr Pick: Hinata // Prediction: Hinata
