That's us in the last months, lol.
It was even worse because there was only 1 chapter in June, and it was this huge cliffhanger with Ryoma breaking the rules and leaving the camp.
About Ryoga, I didn't know about this when writing the summary, but Valentine greets him by saying that he did a good job. So it seems like Ryoga was really a spy of the US team and only joined team Japan in order to recruit Ryoma. Which in turn makes me think he only joined the US team very recently (maybe because he's a first year?) since otherwise Byoudouin and the coaches should have known him.
So if they decided to have a MS division...what the hell was the purpose of the last 50 chapters?
Liking Team 'MERICA!
jointMC with Atobe.
I can't predict what happens in this series anymore...and I'm loving that lol.
lol, and here i was thinking that Yukimura had left the camp many chapters ago. XD
Yes, Oishi, i am surprised to see you in the selected team like you and heartbroken for seeing my Golden Pair separated once more.
My biggest interest is to see if the doubles will be the same of the camp or Mifune has other ideas.

Next big drama is that USA's number 1 is actually Byoudin's brother and he's the one that gave him that big scar.
I must say those are some typical foreigner impression of US characters with those jackets jeez.
@Demon Roronoa Zoa: Atobe was picked based on leadership skills. Everyone knows he's got it.
@Friss: Byodoin only has a younger sister.
WOW JUST WOW!
fuji is chosen to be on the MS team! ( i didnt expect this or wish for this, I guess konomi cant let go of this foo)
EDIT: on the other hand, fuji owns kirihara, so i guess it makes sense fuji would be here.
also what wow'd me is OISHI is on the team too!
Should we open a thread about " Do you agree with Milfune's MS selection"?
I'm 'not sure if milfune is picking the best MSers he can get.
That's where massive discussion can come in........................ ie. no wings of kyushuu? vs angel devil pair?

@ Ashore: The 2 wings are basically forgotten. Fuji was forgotten for about 50 chapters. Everyone from Hyotei except Atobe is forgotten. Sengoku is forgotten. Don't get your hopes up.
On the topic of Byodoin's scar, I have two theories. I think he was trying to protect someone, hence "showing kindness". Like how Oni and Irie protected Tokugawa from Byodoin's assault. Except Byodoin wasn't ass enough to injure Oni. Byodoin's opponent probably was more of an ass than he was. Which in turn, made Byodoin an ass.
Another possible theory is that he thrashed an opponent and while he was walking away, his opponent, with their last ounce of strength, hit his retrieving back. Don't know if it''ll that that big of a scar though.

And I say it before and I'll say it again. Duke is highly suggest to be playing at 60% prior to that point because Oni only ask Duke about playing over 60% at that point. Take Duke stats and *.60, it's hardly that impressive of a feat. This is using canon stats and canon multiplier.

Why are you using math for stuff like this? The fact that Tachibana's combined stats are better than Gin's doesn't mean he'd endure more shots than him, at all. I like WoK a lot more than Gin (and find them a lot better than him, considering Shiraishi was able to return all his Hadous), but I can see what Konomi is doing picking Gin.
I know what Konomi is doing, he's just picking characters on the team he want to write match for, and the popular one. There's no more reason behind it. What I want to know is what is the coach smoking. I say this before.
Say, if you are WoK, and you knows you are beating Gin 6-0 2 set straight for sure, wouldn't you be kind of wtf at this decision?
If you put in real life reason, this is easy. I want to see it making sense from the coach perspective. Also, I think that it is very possible that Tachibana might be able to push Duke more than Gin does provided that they fight. Do anyone saw that line-up and didn't guess oh, 6-0?

However, I think it is safe to assume for now WoK can't use beast syncho at will yet until any further information for the series. If they can, I imagine they would get pick. If they can and doesn't get pick, they would shows beast syncho isn't as well as we give it credits for. Either way, I wouldn't put WoK pair higher than 1st court pair at best for now, more on the line of still 3rd court doubles 1 level.
How is Gin more popular than WoK?
I dunno, I hope that Konomi is trying to go back with his roots with this move. Like, remember the match against Hyotei in Kantou. Only Momoshiro and Taka were allowed by their coach to play against Kabaji, as any other person (including Fuji, Ryoma and I guess Tezuka but that's too much) would get injured by him.
You don't usually see a power player playing against someone that isn't one, which is why I think Gin is in the team.
