Toshinou Kyouko is a girl on a revenge mission as she followed up her good prelim performance with a victory over a Saki character, with Koromo being the unfortunate one to be ousted. Koromo hasn’t been as imperious as she was back in 2009/2010, having made way for new aces from the Achiga series, so it was not much of a surprise that she would falter here against one of the strongest returning contestants from last year.

Meanwhile, Arata and Ryuuka had an easy day out against less tougher opposition as expected, while Sena avoided a banana peel slip with a convincing win against Hinata. Was expecting the Saki contingent to vote in favor of Hinata especially since Sena is perhaps their biggest threat in this block, but it turned out to be the opposite as Sena had more combo votes with the Saki girls. Not looking good for the Ro-Kyu-Bu team, with Mokkan up next.

—–Preview—–
D03
Miyanaga Saki

Shiguma Rika
Togashi Kuzuha

Chu2koi has been in great form, but Kuzuha is too minor of a character to mount a challenge here. Rika’s stock has gone up thanks to the 2nd season of Haganai, and it would be interesting to see if the momentum from Sena’s victory can be carried on here. As for the mahjong demon, she put up a disappointing performance in the prelims, but with the Saki faction aiming to seize control of this block, they’ll be pushing her to a victory here.

D06
Tamaki Rinko
Kamikita Komari

Oshimizu Nako

If it were a year or two ago, Nako would put up a good fight here, but as it stands Komari will grab the victory here based on series recency.

D09
Oohashi Awai
Minato Tomoka
Kusaribe Hakaze

This is a tough one to call. Awai is Saki’s rising star, both in the series and in Saimoe as shown by her drastic improvement in the prelims. Meanwhile, Tomoka is Ro-Kyu-Bu’s ace, though she has not had much luck with the draw since her debut in 2012. With the Saki combo voting over here, Awai has a slight advantage, and the Saki faction has added motivation to give their fullest support to Awai – any win by Awai would improve Koromo’s chance in the repechage round, and they are aiming to set up a match between Awai and Arata in Round 3. Toshinou Kyouko fans might want to improve their chances in the next round by rooting for Tomoka here, so it can go either way really.

D12
Takebe Saori
Midorikawa Nao
Tsurugi Minko

No question, an easy win for Saori here.

  1. “any win by Awai would improve Koromo’s chance in the repechage round”

    How does that work? I thought repechage meant that all the characters who lost to the block winner would get to face off in the loser bracket? So that means that Toshinou Kyouko would have to win the block?
