With the Birdie Wing Twitter heavily hinting a second season it is a relief because in this episode the tournament had yet to start.
We began with qualifying rounds to see which teams would enter the main tournament. Just getting it out of the way quickly of course Eve and Aoi won for Raiou Academy and they’d represent them in the tournament. As mentioned last episode the tournament was organized by Aoi’s mom solely to shine the spotlight on her baby girl once she wins. Eve being her tag team partner was a bonus since she’s pretty much her equal.
Our heroines being as competitive as they were cared more about beating each other than winning as a team. They competed to surpass the “-10” score by the top ranked local player, Mizuho. They both got -11. It wasn’t a big deal during the qualifiers but teamwork will be more important in the tournament as it would be contested under Match Play rules. Rather than lowest score wins it’s more like the Singles duels we’ve seen Eve compete in. Basically the team who hit their ball in the lowest shots win the hole. The team with the most holes won by the end of the game win. Since courses consist of 18 holes a team who score 10 holes more than their opponents get an automatic win.
Meanwhile the caddies also had their own pouting contest over which way was best, old school observation and instinct (Ichina) vs modern technology (Amane).
Reminds me of that sexy buff babe from KEIJO!!!!!!!! and the main protagonist of Hanebado!!
Seeing this sexy beast made me sad because rather than be one of our heroines’ tougher opponents she’s just a throwaway character in the qualifiers for Eve to “pierce”. I wanted her to be a recurring character damn it!
I still miss them, especially Lily.
Eve’s “battle gear” and Aoi caught off guard by her head pat. Eve is a lady killer after all. Claims to be bi but we know where she really swings.
Eve aims for her next target Mizuho.
Coverage was brief because the episode was straightforward with the above being my highlights. Good stuff as always. Next time I assume the tournament officially starts.
