Ritz-sensei's blog post 17.06.22

Ritz has made a new blog post answering a few more fan's questions. Nothing radically important but some answers can be interesting or a little funny. Here's a translation if you are curious.

Comments and clarifications have been added in italics when necessary. Chihiro's color drawing and the trio of profile pictures are reproduced from Ritz's blog only to help illustrate the text. I hope that's alright. I also added a few pictures from the manga to illustrate some of the other answers.

Questions and Answers

- Shiraitodai's Yamada
I find it curious that people ask me about Yamada but not about the other four ex-members of Shiraitodai. But she has a nasty look in her eyes with that forehead. 
Yamada is the girl with the headband who was a regular at Shiraitodai before Teru arrived.
Yamada is not amused.

- Youko's birthday is September 19. Her blood type is A.

- The character designs of Terado and Ishihara are mine. 
Two of Shino's current opponents at the Shimane tournament.
Ritz previously revealed that some character's designs in Shinohayu are not hers but Aguri's. Most notably, Kyouka. Also, Rena. All characters in Saki and Achiga-hen were designed by Ritz (except Nanpo Kazue who was created by the anime staff).

Saki ch176: Hard Struggle & Biyori ch66

Just for reference, since Ritz doesn't always show us the scoreboard, at the end of the vanguard match, Senriyama was 1st, Shindouji 2nd, Himematsu 3rd and Usuzan 4th. The positions didn't change in the sergeant match. Then on the first round of the lieutenant match (end of ch174), Hiroe puts Himematsu in 2nd place and that's how things stand at the beginning of this chapter.
