The club members watch the master and queen matches on TV at Taichi's house. They are shocked to see that Shinobu is now pudgy, which affects her speed and accuracy. Shinobu, wearing her grandmother's kimono, remembers when her mother divorced her father. She and her mother went to live with her grandmother, who took Shinobu to the Myojo Karuta Society when Shinobu became interested in karuta. As Yumi takes several cards in a row, Shinobu apologizes to them in her mind that she wasn't able to save them. She remembers how her classmates in elementary school stole her cards and hid them. Shinobu defeats Yumi and retains her title. Chihaya realizes she needs to become attached to the cards the way Shinobu and Kana are. Attention shifts to the master match. Nishida tells Chihaya that her style is more like Suō's than Shinobu's. The commentator recounts that Suō said that he has 28 one-syllable cards.
