THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Test is over and 3 more days until the next competition.

Chihaya immediately to practice. Taichi feeling that she's rushed after seeing Arata.

lol @ Taichi faking the lines for long time.

Chihaya did well for the test and the teacher said good luck!

So no to yukata this time, and the coach has a rival!

lol @ that guy losing to Chihaya is breaking her concentration.

Her opponent is also a strong one... small yet strong (or rather, fast). Her mother is the one who's nervous for her. Chihaya can see that she is good. When she did, the little girl says she's slow. She can feel so because she was like that before.

After her coach said she's allowed to get fast, her expression changed that her opponent is shocked. Little girl also caught by hearing while crying.

Chihaya is crying after that, too!! She wished Chihaya good luck. Everyone was saying the girl not big of deal like the rumor said, and Chihaya stopping that for her. lol @ her eating right after that, and Taichi messainge Arata.

Arata's sempai entrusting winning to him.

ED airing the different part of the song.

This is such a good show :') I really don't want it to end and I wish it could be longer than that! This was quite the episode though :D Hope Chihaya can make it along with everyone else.

It feels like the show is just playing with Taichi some more.

I'm glad the child prodigy and her mom were genuine and nice people. I thought they would make them seem like bad guys but it really was a mom who cared for her kid and wanted her to be happy with whatever she does.

Must know Ririka's VA.
Ririka and her mom are so adorable; I'm glad Chihaya is improving both as a person and a player.

Felt bad for Taichi at the end but he sure knows how to motivate Arata. Taichi, be selfish, please, and take what you want! In love and live, the winners are those who fight for their goal no matter the means! Good luck, Taichi!

That girl was so cute, but Chihaya kicked ass xD.

Taichi lost his libido and can no longer achieve Ginga Bishounen status. Besides, he knows he can;t win against Arata's sexy voice resonating in Chihaya's memories? Do we ever see flashback with Taichi? NOPE! Bwahahahahaha!

Another great episode. I have yet to see a mediocre episode in this show, but it doesn't seem to happen. And I'm glad about it.

My reaction was pretty much the same as the groups was, when they saw Taichi reading cards from his memory. That's some nice memory. The match between Ririka and Chihaya was really interesting to watch, as it was pretty much Chihaya fighting with her old self.

I'm quite sure that was Chopper's VA Ootani Ikue, her voice is quite different from the rest after all. (Just checked the credits, and it was her indeed.)

Love this episode. It was really amusing.

Lol Daddy Bear on Chihaya's mind, and I think Sudo is hilarious.
If I wasn't suffering from the Taichi/Chihaya/Arata triangle I would ship Sudo and Chihaya.

The little girl was such a good sport.
She was more enjoyable than that lady that kept saying 'lucky' all the time.

4 ep. left ;~;

I WANT TO KNOW what Arata answered Taichi in the text message. Episode, why u end at that moment? NOT COOL!

Never seen an anime where the two main guys are sooo amazing and equally likable.

I swear Arata doesn't need to have any lines and he's still a large pillar of this show. It's intense. Can't wait until the 3 of them get officially reunited. :)

That 6th grader was cute, very cute when she teared up and managed to get a card.
Such a beautiful personality.
Yet another great ep.

And Arata`s accent is still weird to me, but it`s growing on me, I had to hold back my laugh when his friends and him was talking to eachother at the end there :P

If you expect them to have a final without any lose ends, you`ll end up frustrated.
I`m pretty sure there will be another season.

Also, Arata's friend Murao, sounded like he was singing to him with a T-Pain voice during the flashback.

Chihaya is going to be swept off her feet by Arata. Only 1st place gets the prize, sorry Taichi.

I think they should have left the ending animation out this time around and just kept the music playing while Arata shows more of his reaction to his senior member that he looked up to when he was younger. I think that moment needed to be flushed out a bit more since it felt really rushed as soon as the text came in cutting Arata off in his moment of dismay...although that may have been intentional on the director's part.

I laughed when Harada-sensei was telling Chihaya to use her speed XD He's so cool. And I can't believe Chihaya made that bet =.=

I'm praying for a second season...I can wait

I certainly hope so, I guess in these last 4 episodes only the eastern qualifiers and probably a wrap up episode are going to be covered.

I just don't like the fact that a second season hasn't been anounced yet. So the second season most likely won't start in spring D:

SECOND SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT WHERE!?!?

I think I'll DIE if this show doesn't get a second season! I have a sinking feeling that it's going to wrap the anime up at the end of the Eastern Qualifier T_T I WANT MOAR!

Now to the episode~ That 6th grader was really cute and likeable! It really was like a present Chihaya VS old Chihaya match! She saw the similarities between Ririka's playstyle and her old play-style! Chihaya really is maturing! As Docter/Sensei said she needs to learn ALL she can to stand a chance agaisnt the hard players, especially the queen, the master and Arata! She now knows to strategize during the match and is working on her timing. She still has a way to go though! I think she has to work on her memorization of the cards/poems a little though so that she can be able to be her swift self and swing at the right time BUT hit the right cards! No more dead/wrong cards Chihaya! It's been pointing out that that is her fault and I'm OH SO HAPPY she's working on improving it!

The Arata-Taichi bromance was A-DOR-A-BLE >_< I'm glad Arata is giving it his all in the Westen qualifier!! I feel SO BAD for Taichi! He won't get his chance to have his battle with Arata for awhile T_T PLUS I swear he's this shows punching bag! ALL THE BAD CRAP HAPPENS TO HIM! I swear the mangaka must of had a sadistic urge to always hurt him :'( POOR TAICHI! xD

In the love triangle... I still don't care who she ends up with! If it's ANY of them I think it'll be Arata but I LOVE both of them!! They both suit her for completely different reasons and theres chemistry EVERYWHERE!

CAN'T WAIT TIL NEXT WEEK! The wait is a killer every week >_<

This series is made with love, an incredibly entertaining episode again.

I have no idea if there's enough original content for a second season, the first season hasn't ended and I want more already, want more so badly!

Well I'm just glad that it isn's Gonzo that made the anime, I mean their second seasons either come out a century later or never at all (T.T still waiting for Saki). As for the episode itself, Ririka is interesting and the show has introduced quite a number of powerhouses over the span of a few episodes, it will be highly entertaining to see more pop-up and if there is a second season please for the love of Karuta make Ririka a recurring character :D. That is all!

I don't have any interest in karuta....bleeh!
we need more drama, romance


Usually I agree with this. And I still kind of do. I loved seeing those earlier moments where Taichi struggled with his feelings for Chihaya. But, it is a sport anime first. And karuta is the main appeal of, with very small parts of romance/drama sprinkled in. Why not watch an anime that's supposed to be drama/romance for that, then? xD

I know what you mean, Shubidubi! I cried at that part too! I also cried when her mom said, "If karuta is what you need to make you like yourself, then do it."

So emotional >.<
