Entries of Eastern/Western Sectionals are updated.

Ishikawa had a horrible free skate at last week's Eastern Japan Inter-Collegiate Championships (no jump and only 8 points for the TES). If she repeats such a performance, the NHK spot would be given to Kokubun (her home town is Sapporo).
Eastern junior ladies
Roanna Oshikawa and Karen Kemanai are not listed.
Western senior men
Mura skated brilliantly at Western Japan I-C Championships (all clean including a 4T and 7 triples).

This must be a very tough competition. Only 14 (Oba and Tomotaki included) can advance to junior nationals. I suspect it would require at least 125 points.
Three ice dance teams are listed. Brina Oi (Curran Oi's younger sister) is one of them.
Edit to correct
Shoko Ishikawa was not listed, I have mistaken for Yuka Ishikawa. Shoko seems to have good political backings through her coach Nobuo Sato. At this point, the NHK spot could be considered undecided yet.
