Its time for the second hanchan of the Vice-Captain Match. And things are getting intense!
If you guys noticed the seating is different this time. For one thing, Nodoka is the dealer when Hatsumi is in the North.
uh- oh. What then will our valiant heroine do?
The episode starts with Hatsumi on the north seat.
Which as explained in the show with Sae and Granny is very very bad news. When she is seated there, Hatsumi gets the north and east tiles very easily. And once, she called a set of those tiles, the south and west is drawn as well.
That means she can trivially aim for Daisuushii (Big Four Winds) and Shousuushi (Little Four Winds). Yikes.
