Japanese roster for the 1st week:
- S: 10. Koyomi Tominaga, 22. Kanami Tashiro
- OPP: 19. Mari Horikawa
- OH: 2. Sarina Koga, 7. Yuki Ishii, 18. Saori Takahashi, 20. Arisa Inoue, 21 Ai Kurogo
- MB: 3. Nana Iwasaka (C), 9. Haruyo Shimamura, 13. Mai Okumura, 24. Aika Akutagawa
- Li: 15. Kotoe INOUE, 23. Akane Yamagishi, 27. Mana Toe
Hmmm ... No Risa, no Nabeya. Since this is a musical chairs tournament I don't mind a couple youngsters in there instead of them for this round, and Horikawa can be a beast if the stars are aligned. But three liberos?
The important thing is that Sarina Koga better not have cut her hair.
