Without further ado, the field of 47. Couple of notes:
- 10 newbies this year
- With Chiben Wakayama eliminated the longest streak of Natsu Koushien tournaments belongs to Seikou Gakuin (Fukushima) at 7. Next would be Meitoku Gijyuku (Kochi) at 4.
- Minoshima has the longest gap between appearances (29 years) followed by Iwakuni Shougyou (27).
- Urawa Gakuin will look for yet another haru-natsu renzoku yuushou, while Saibi and Anraku think revenge.
