13:00 JT Marvelous v Toyota Body Queens ... 3–1
13:00 NEC Red Rockets v Denso Airybees ... 2–3
15:00 Ageo Medics v Toray Arrows ... 1–3
15:00 Hisamitsu Springs v Hitachi Rivale ... 3–0
JT had a little payback for the Body Queens. Kitsui is back in uniform for JT, subbed in a few sets. Neriman has added blond highlights to her ponytail. Toyota has added 3 or 4 new Body Queens to their roster. Only one I recognized is Ayaka Sugi from the U23 team. It was an entertaining, hard fought match with no individual standouts. Toyota drops to 6th place in the standings behind NEC--wtf?
NEC and Denso went down to the wire in a 5 sets, but it wasn't an entertaining match. Sloppy play all around and it doesn't bode well for Denso that it took them 5 sets to beat NEC. Denso played a looser lineup, maybe that's why, and offered up their first great Densoid* of the year (look at Sakamoto's body stance. She thinks she's on a coffee break
Hisamitsu remains undefeated. Hitachi signed a new player.
I can't bring myself to watch an Ageo game.
Seems like there are a number of new players in the league. I'll sort it out later.
* A Densoid is when the team stands around and group watches the ball hit the floor.
OMG...this is my favorite picture ever "my latte is cold"
