Kagetsu eliminates Hana and wins the third pick
Hana eliminates Jungle and wins the fourth pick
Per the stipulation, JAN is abolished!
New Faction Lineups:
Despite JAN being my favorite faction they were the best choice to be dissolved as Stardom never got behind them
Jungle Kyona having to work with Kimura now is an interesting dynamic and evil Kyona could be great
Starlight Kid going first again indicates her spot as the next Mayu, she is the heart and soul of STARS
Queen’s Quest restocked and picked up two new pin eaters which should allow AZM to step up
Konami will also step up as part of Kimura’s faction as she moves up from being QQ’s pin eater
Tora is a good pick for OT as she will add some power to the faction. A team with Miyagi could run through Stardom
Hana Kimura drafting a fresh faction leads to an interesting new addition to Stardom as the other factions remained mostly the same
It will be interesting to see how the younger talent like Rina, Hina, Natsumi etc. settle into new factions.
