While we're discussing line-ups, after rereading Ch 69, I feel like Irie might replace Ohmagari before the match.
It does say that it is G10 vs 2nd Stringers here, so Kazuya definitely can play, although I'm still unsure.
Which brings me to ask, how was Nioh even able to play against the G10 seeing how he was already a member of the 1st String? It's supposed to be a G10 / U-17 Overseas Representatives vs. 2nd Stringers exhibition match, so how come Nioh got to play on the 2nd Stringers' side? He was already one of the 1st Stringers by the time, so ...
There are currently two free spots in the 11-20: the No. 13 spot that Kabaji vacated by being eliminated from the U-17 camp, and the No. 16 spot that Niou vacated when he wanted to play in the top 10 matches. The No. 16 spot most likely goes to Kikumaru, so that the GP would be reunited, but the No. 13 spot could ostensibly go to a number of players who just need to be in the top 20. Kaoz and I theorize that Akutsu loses to Oni and then takes the No. 13 spot, so we then have Kawamura/Akutsu.

Since I don't see (m)any more votes being cast, the poll is over. Results are:
The reason why you only get a screenshot is because I needed the space for a second poll. Blame the forum software.
In any case, when playing around a bit with the teams, I had the feeling that there was a rather large gap for the doubles in particular, so I wondered whether you would prefer throwing a couple makeshift pairs in instead of only having canonical ones (e.g. Marui/Kite would have been considered a makeshift pair before the latest chapters). It might be possible to go with only canonical ones, but it'd include pairs like Taira/Hara, where we've only really seen one half of the pair do anything.
Again, please vote for what you'd like to have.
EDIT: Apparently there's another unexpected issue with polls here, I'll post again once it's fixed. Sorry about that.

There we go.

More makeshift pairs for me, gives more things to discuss. How the partners would work together on top of ho the confrontation of teams would be...
And currently it seems that two strong singles players make stronger team than 'the true doubles' (GP, SP), and I don't think there would be enough strong-enough canon pairs?
Makeshift pair. It should make for a much more interesting discussion. Non-cannon wise, tier list pretty is already a place to do that.
Makeshift, the only two high-level Ms pairs are the Golden Pair and Marui-Jackal...
I really want to see Kikumaru pairing with someone that isn´t Oishi (nor Niou...who would obviously transform into Oishi)
Don't really know where to throw this, but I guess I might as well put it here. Forget what I said in the chapter discussion a few days ago.
I still don't want Marui/Kite, Kaoz. I know Konomi likes Higa, but I still think Kimijima/Tohno offscreen Marui/Kite, and then something like Chitose/Fuji or Shiraishi/Fuji beat Kimijima/Tohno. Well, realistically, I agree that Marui/Kite don't seem to be losing here, but I don't want them in the top 20. I'd be okay with them as 12/13, 15/16, or 18/19, but not in the top 10.
I agree with this. I think many other characters belong in the top 10.Quote:
