No Taichi, but with Rion (YES!)
And the next match starts...
PS: Chapter 123 was translated a few days ago.
Why is Shinobu such a cunt?
I suppose because she lost to an old woman. (But I don't know japanese, so I'm not sure).
From what I gathered myself Shinobu was too upset that Chihaya failed to face her in the queen match and broke her promise. Chihaya was still trying to be friends with her but she was a stone cold bitch.
