I like this now.
I can now say Tooyama, Akutsu, Sanada, Ryoma > Yukimura.
And it's legit now. Pretty clear cut.
In a sense that there is no way they can lose to Yukimura.
I just pray for Tooyama's sake he doesn't get into a long rally at 5-3 to him against Yuki. that would take the piss.
I also like this coz if Oni bts Tooyama, then when Sanada VS Tanegashima comes its a situation where I want the MSers to finally pull one back.
had Sanada played in just now, then we kinda would have known he was going to beat Tanegashima without doubt.
What I'm most looking forward to is the return of "The Emperor." What I mean by that is a return of Sanada's status, acknowledged by the high-schoolers as well. After all, this is his shot at redemption after losing to Yukimura (who is really the only person he could have lost to). It's cool to see Kintarou and everything, but he is like the special drink before a meal. It would be great to see Akutsu in action for once, but that would be like the appetizer. I think we all agree that Sanada is the main course.
It's hard for me to see Ryoga or Byodouin play in a doubles so that means Sanada almost certainly will have to play in a doubles match, assuming there are 2 singles + 1 doubles match remaining, though I'm not exactly sure the format of the overall match is 4S3D.
Right now, I think No.s 1-6 are Singles. At this moment. Unlike Ochi/Mouri and Kimijima/Tohno we have seen no bond between Ohmagari and Oni.
Other than both of them picking fights with Akutsu.
Can't see Tanegashima doing Doubles.
@Phantron Sanada won't be in Doubles. I can't see Sanada willfully organizing his own Doubles match. Since these pairs were organized by the MSers themselves.
Who would Sanada pair with besides Yuki?
They are Singles players.
Back at Regionals, we had Gimp!Sanada and Gimp!Atobe, so it wasn't too bad.
But right now it wouldn't be right.

I think Konomi is making it Prince of Tennis again now though so I think it's fine.
But as I'm one of the few people that actually liked the Kanto camp arc, I also like that pair (AND KIRIHARA IN SINGLES 1).

Who the hell named Bunta/Jackal "champion pair"? Is like calling Rikkai "champions" nowadays...
