Upon graduating from Setouchi, Sayaka officially becomes a B-Rank Keijo player, affiliated with the Kansai's Hyougo Branch. Just like Nozomi, she is later mentored by Sumire Sakuragi.

After collecting enough points, Sayaka manages to advance to the A-Rank. Sometime later, Sayaka and Nozomi start to stay in the Garden Worth, a lodging for Keijo players, where they reunite with Hanabi Kawai and Saya Kogatana.

However, Sayaka was able to defeat one of them, prompting Yamikumo to assault Miyata. After being threatened by Yamikumo, Sayaka was defeated and fell out of the Land.

Later, Nozomi prepared for the second match as she approached Sayaka. As Sayaka questioned Nozomi on why did she decide to try Keijo, Nozomi stated it was because of money. While Sayaka herself stated that she wanted to wear a cute swimsuit. Nozomi cheered Sayaka up, whereas Sayaka regained her confidence.

  • Large Outer Butt Throw (尻・大外刈り, Shiri Ōsotogari): Sayaka hooks her opponent's swimsuit by using her nipple. Sayaka then starts to bend in order to throw them away. Like most of the other throwing techniques, it consistently relied on a considerable amount of hip strength in order to be able to perform it successfully.
