To settle this long score, a contest was held to determine which family will settle on the island. The contest was called Animé Survivor.
Of the 144 families who made marks on Shireneko Island, sixteen families, including the original familiy, passed the critera. Each family sent their own representatives to be contestants. These contestants were divided into two tribes: Sakura (always wearing pink) and Katsura (always wearing blue). They would be marooned for 39 days in Shireneko Island until two remain.
Sakura won on the very first immunity challenge, sending Katsura to Tribal Council. Despite Sakura winning the first two reward challenges, Katsura won the next two immunity challenges, forcing Sakura to give up two of their own on Tribal Council. But Sakura regained its strength, winning the two reward challenges and the last three immunity challenges. This left Katsura with four members and Sakura with six.
