Fantastic episode again. The ending of Ako's match was sort of an anti-climax given how much they hyped up Harvest Time.
Arata's match was the highlight and there were lots of magical mahjong. We had a true monster in Mairu with her bondage mahjong, and Shiraitodai's Seiko with her watersports fishing style
FunaQ may not have special powers but she's a sabermetrician who likes to lick water from her face :D
The star is Arata though, and I'm glad we finally got a chance to see her playing after she was ignored for most of the series. Was logical that her style would be related to bowling splits. And it's confirmed that she's the club president since she's the most level-headed one. Arata learning and adapting Harue's style into her own was a nice touch. It looks like Achiga will remain in 2nd spot for the last match.
But Himeko has lots of keys in her possession which she'll convert into wins in her match including a 14-han!... And what is Awai's power that makes her so confident? (She's a 100th year student!)
Arrgh, another month of waiting...
Oh yeah. The match was so exciting that I forgot to mention Saki, Koromo and Hajime making a quick cameo appearance. Though in Hajime's case, her clothes seems to be missing a lot of parts :D
