Rikkai vs. *DONDONDON* SHINTENHOUJI!!!
I've been thinking about this match for quite a while now. For the people who don't know... or don't remember, it's stated to have taken place at the previous year's semifinals.
Just what the hell happened in that match? Rikkai supposedly dominated over Shintenhouji, which was most likely with the skills of the Big 3 as the pillar of support. Chitose was on the team, as was Shiraishi, but even with these superpowers, they got their asses handed to them. The only true facts about this match would be that 1) Shiraishi was [more than] likely Singles 1, and 2) Chitose played a match against Marui Bunta.
Evidence, you ask? Where's the evidence? Well... Inui said Shiraishi didn't play in any of the matches, that he was an undocumented player. And, since he played (or would have played) singles 1 against Fudomine, I just assume that, in all likelihood, he'd be playing singles 1 against Rikkai. As for Chitose, after he initiated Muga, the only skill he used was Tsuna Watari, which is Marui's specialty skill. If that's true, then he either played singles against Marui (meaning Jackal was with someone else, likely Sanada so that they could go against Ishida's Hadoukyuu), or that he played in a doubles match with Marui and some other player.
Thoughts? Opinions? Thoughts about how Tachibana and Fuji return Tsuna Watari?
