Some Thoughts

Despite JAN being my favorite faction they were the best choice to be dissolved as Stardom never got behind them

Jungle Kyona having to work with Kimura now is an interesting dynamic and evil Kyona could be great

Starlight Kid going first again indicates her spot as the next Mayu, she is the heart and soul of STARS

Queen’s Quest restocked and picked up two new pin eaters which should allow AZM to step up

Konami will also step up as part of Kimura’s faction as she moves up from being QQ’s pin eater

Tora is a good pick for OT as she will add some power to the faction.  A team with Miyagi could run through Stardom

Hana Kimura drafting a fresh faction leads to an interesting new addition to Stardom as the other factions remained mostly the same

It will be interesting to see how the younger talent like Rina, Hina, Natsumi etc. settle into new factions.
