Hm, would there be any possibility of the contest getting started in 145? If this does turn out to be the last contest before the Grand Festival, I think it would be a bit disappointing for it to be another rushed, one-episode contest like the last several have been. With contest starting in 145 (even if it's just at the very end), it would at least have a full episode to itself.
I think it's pretty obvious this Kazunari guy is going to catch the Gible, regardless of who this other person he's competing with is. But you never know...
