Fujin - 4
Julia - 4
A surprise. Personally, I kinda thought that Fujin would win by at least a couple votes, but after something of a yo-yo battle, we end up with a tie. So let's go to the tie-breaker by looking at the votes from the first round...
Fujin - 6/6 - 100%
Julia - 5/5 - 100%
LOL, they both got 100% first time around, but Fujin got one more vote, so this one goes to Fujin. Next battle...
Martine (Martine: "Good day. I have official orders from Headmaster Cid addressed to you. Following regulations, I have gone over these orders. After careful consideration of our options, we have decided to fully assist and cooperate with Headmaster Cid. Actually, we too, have been planning for this quite some time now.")
Raine Loire (Laguna: "Alright! Our first patrol, complete! We're to report to the commander and asst. commander." Kiros: "Commander...You mean that woman at the pub?" Laguna: "Her name's Raine. Raine, OK!? She saved my life. And the asst. commander is Ellone." Kiros: "She seems like a really nice person. But easily taken in by a hotshot.")

Raine easily moves to the quarter-finals. And the next battle is...
Zone (Watts: "It's the princess' nap time, sir." Zone: "Ahh, man... Hey, Squall, sorry, but could you go get the princess? She's in the [last room], up those stairs. Some of our other guys are in the room on the way. Ask'em if you get lost." Squall: "...Were we hired to run errands? Well?" Zone: "A-Are you angry!?" Squall: "(We're not gophers...We're SeeD...special forces.) This is the last time for this kinda thing. Zone: "OwOwOuccchhh. ... Ouuuchh...M-My stomach...")
Moombas (Squall: "You raise Moombas in this village?" Sculptor: "...Raise...? Moomba is one of many final forms that we Shumis take." Squall: "Final form?" Sculptor: "You don't know? Excluding the ones qualified to become Elders, all Shumis evolve at a certain stage of our lives. We become what is in our hearts. Often, those who fail to become honorable Elders turn into Moombas. The passionate ingenuity in their hearts gives rise to the red hair. It's common knowledge. Sculptor is surprised you didn't know." Zell: "That sucks. Turning into those beasts..." Sculptor: "B-B-BEASTS!!!? H-H-HOW DARE YOU CALL THEM BEASTS!!!? Yes, the ones who become Elders are remarkable people! But what did you call them again!? BEASTS! "Did you not see their noble features? Their gem-like eyes revealing innocence! Their bright red hair symbolizing passion! Their spectacular hair signifying power! Their soothing, adorable cries! Their mighty hands with incredible strength! Their proud posture demanding respect! Everything about them is great!" Squall: "Ok, alright. (Man, you and your big mouth.)")
Student C was naughtier;P
Zone - 4
Moombas - 3
Decent battle -- Zone wins by one vote. Three battles left in the current round. The next of those is...
Queen of Cards (Queen: "I am the Queen of Cards. I travel all over the world to monitor and enforce the various card rules. What do you wish to know?" Squall: "How are the rules passed on?" Queen of Cards: "Basically, each region has its own rules. The rules you're carrying are passed on as you travel to various regions. As for the trading rules, they gradually spread out from a region where the card game is most popular. Of course, this region can change constantly depending on your course and actions. Also, my presence in a region can change its trading rules at times.")
Biggs/Wedge (Biggs: "S-So we meet again! Now we'll teach you the lesson we should have taught you earlier! I know it might seem cowardly to fight unarmed prisoners... ...But I hope you appreciate our position. Hey, it's a dog eat do..." Wedge: "Uh, they are fully armed, sir..." Biggs: "W-WHAT!? H-Ho-How...? Ahh, hell with it! Let's go, Wedge!")
