They may not want another ace, but if Rino wins again, they're going to get one. It's a pretty healthy margin too so it may be above manipulation.

My one vote towards Kojiharu has yet to be counted so obviously this is invalid.

All jokes aside, I hope Sasshi doesn't win again. It's boring if the same person wins twice in a row. Damn, I'd even be happier if Jurina won, and I'd still be pretty pissed if Jurina won. At least it's not Paruru, though.

The End
