And so we come to our first batch of matches as the Dream Team enter their first tournament. How well do they fare? Let’s find out in episode 3.
Hello and welcome to long awaited return of the Mahjong Wrestling Federation’s #1 announcer, The OGMan! We hope many great matches where the wrestlers will shed much blood, sweat and tears for the sake of victory!
We kick things off with the Dream Team ready to take names as they’re immediately pitted against one of the strongest teams, Bansei, in the 1st round.
WAIT A MINUTE! BEFORE THE MATCHES COULD EVEN START, THE DREAM TEAM OBLITERATES BANSEI WITH LITTLE EFFORT! BY GOSH KING! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?
Wait, what? They won the tournament? THEY WON, OFF SCREEN!? WHAT THE HELL!?
Coach Anderson plans to make the team undertake special training by going on a Live Event tour across the country competing against top schools that didn’t make it to the Nationals, basically all the runner-ups. Shizuno wants to challenge Nagano’s first.
So the 1st runner up team they face off against is…
And lastly, THE JABORNI BEATING, CAKE EATING, TRAILBLAZING, STRONGER THAN A PLUSHIE, FASTER THAN A DUCK, THE MOST ELECTRIFYING SHORTIE IN SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT, THE PEOPLE’S LOLI…
Suffice to say, I squeed so loud, the neighbors banged my door to keep it down and let their cats sleep.
After summer camp, the time to depart for the Nationals had arrived…but first a road trip to Tokyo where they meet:
Team Senriyama, where the potential yuri couple of this spin-off resides.
At the Tokyo Coliseum, we meet, or at least get a dark glimpse of:
Mahjong’s 2nd Olympic gold medalist, Saki Angle! Could she have turned heel to focus on taking down The Grim Teru or do others see her as an intimidating force? It’s hard to tell right now, unless you’ve read the manga which I won’t do to avoid spoilers.
Next week, the 1st match of Mahjongmania…hopefully.
