...onto Aomori!

...and now 2 limited express trains takes us under the Tsugaru Strait into Aomori.

Not surprisingly, Kousei Gakuin gets the #1 seed. The other top 3 though, may not be familiar to many - Hirosaki Gakuin Seiai, Hachinohe Nishi and Goshogawara Kougyou.

And where's the team that dominated Aomori baseball? Aomori Yamada isn't even seeded in the top 8, which would guarantee them a spot in the bracket. Worse yet, their draw is pretty bad. They get to play the first game of the tournament against Itayanagi. Not only does this mean that they have to play an extra game, but their reward for winning is playing #2 seed Hirosaki Gakuin Seiai. It's not going to be easy. But if they do it, it'll be one heck of an achievement.

Well, time to hit the road again! Well, rail... but off to Akita!
