So Kuroko was able to halt Railgun’s poor run of form, though she had to work her socks out for it with Wakana almost stealing the win from her in the dying seconds of the match. Well, she’s through in any case – which could possibly set up a Raildex combo vote day in Round 3… assuming Saten is able to get past Akarin.
Meanwhile, Kuroneko was able to secure a victory as expected, ending Maou-sama’s and Nobuna’s hopes for this year’s tournament.
Tsukiko should grab the win here – though opposing series in this Block, such as Yuru Yuri and Oreimo might want to take her out by making use of Rin. However, I doubt they’re cunning enough to engage in tactical voting today.
And once again, it’s a direct confrontation between the Saki and Madoka faction. While her comrades have faltered, Teru has performed above expectations so far in this tournament. These two have actually met during the prelims – with Sayaka finishing just above Teru back then. It’ll be a direct duel this time though, but the outcome will probably be the same – ultimately Teru isn’t amongst the aces Saki have in Saimoe, and as such Sayaka will be too strong for her to handle.
