The way Yukino’s gramps enters the dojo on a motorised wheelchair reminds me of Professor X lol.
With Lise now set to join, RISE is finally complete!

Every now and then I forget just how high tech this world is despite the robots. Yukino's world is that cool blend of tradition with a dash of future.
I also really liked the advice that he gave after entry. Sometimes those advice speeches can be rather trite and cliche, but it's so hard to write something new for them because they're so common. Instead I think it's more about getting the right one for the context and the balance of the wording, and the subs I watched did a really great job. I was convinced, even in the short time available for the scene.
I expected Yukino to have a big impact on the game, but her [pulling a Babe Ruth and *calling her shot*](https://i.imgur.com/3Zn1n9v.png) before hitting that go-ahead home run is just so extra. Sometimes an anime can just be dumb fun for the sake of dumb fun, and that's totally fine by me.

Tbh, I would've loved it as just a galaxy brain play to get the crowd on their side. Adding the home run was icing on the cake for me.
Tbh, this whole episode was awesome, from Yukino's bat being her sword to showing up in the 4th inning to casually stomping the other team with Maehara's full-strength pitching. This episode really felt like classic Tsuzuki.

Being a kendo practitioner, I'm sure she spent a little bit of her car ride thinking about how to get inside her opponent's head and disrupt their strategy. The way the whole thing panned out was perfect for me, with BanShee sticking to their strategy guns, but being put off just enough to give Yukino the opening.

I loved it. It feels like this show should be cheesy and dumb, and maybe it is, but that's not the way I'm enjoying it. These girls are going full throttle, 100% of the time, 100% of the way, so far be it from me to ignore that. If they're going to take their ambitions so seriously, and work that hard for it, I'm cheering them on like it matters haha
That was actually some great advice from yukino’s grandfather. Sometimes the correct path in life is the roundabout way! Glad she was able to free herself from her self imposed prison. She’s got a hell of a swing as well. Think she’ll end up being my best girl

BanShee seem like a fun group. I'm not opposed to them playing dirty if the rules allow it. *However!* I am definitely **not** a fan of people picking on the cute robots! Every damn time! Those AI are already underappreciated enough as it is! Purposefully singling them out and bullying them like that is not cool. Not cool at all.
Wish we could've heard BanShee play though. An 11 member rock/metal band sounds crazy. I wonder if they will actually get songs at some point in the future, even if it doesn't happen in the anime. That usually happens with these kinds of things, right?

Yes, I liked them too. Takes a lot of guts to go and actually be the bad guys, and I felt like we got to see them struggle with it once or twice, but brush it off. That's one of my favourite things about this show so far, how committed these girls are to whatever they're doing.

To ro-bot, is to suffer. No glory, only recharge then practice some more lol
I do like that bit in the OP where Saki is showing off some skills for them and they all clap happily at the end of the impromptu show lol
Yuki’s family is great, I like how supportive they are. BanShee are playing it smart, RISE seemed to be in a real pinch without Yuki. Good thing she got there when they needed her. They really crushed BanShee in the end!
Looks like Lise the masked karate Newtuber is gonna be joining the girls. She’s cute! Plus she’s got some killer moves. Next game should be Futsal, so they’ll need someone with strong kicks.
> They really crushed BanShee in the end!
For some reason this felt a bit subversive in a way lol Normally the addition of the final power move or additional team member is meant to allow for the heroes to scrap home. Not here, it turns into a curb stomping haha Makes sense too, Rise have the talent, and the strategy, all they needed was a way to get to use it.
They’re really assembling a dream team. Looks like they’ll be adding Lise next. Curious to see what she can do!
What a great episode. Rly like this anime a lot and always anticipate a new episode.
Yukino helped RISE to win their first match of the main tornament. I hope they win next one to so I'll see their new song on stage.
Also looks like last member is on horizon. She has nice karate moves and will be great addition to a team.
I thought lise's voice is familiar. To think it will be xiangling's voice actress ☺️☺️☺️
Not a fan of the show making the AI robots virtually... I wouldn't say useless since they do help the MCs train, but competitively unusable is a good word for it. It's been like that since Episode 2 maybe, and it's just kinda sad.
But man, Yukino getting a home run after her saying she'd do it got my hyped. And BanShee getting school'd after looking down on Rise all game long is so cathartic
Team Spica from Umamusume should try entering this sports, singing and dancing competition
