Why is this show so epic D:
Oh my god Taichi memorizing all the poems O_O He's kinda like Chihaya in that he only relies on that to get him through ... nice of Nishida to tell him to try to change haha XD
Ririka was pretty cute o_O Chihaya got to be like Sakura and win not only using her speed ... plus it was nice of her at the end when she heard everyone talking about her :P
Oh, Arata at the end and that guy who played for the Meijin title ... well, we finally know his name now :P Oh and Taichi and thinking of what to text him ... ahahaha XD Gosh, you're so precious ;)
More ED revealed, although the transition was kind of odd IMO. Please, please let there be a second season D:

I marathoned this anime this weekend, all the way from episode 6 to present lol. Have to say this thing is the bomb! I'm loving every moment of it. It looks like Taichi and Arata have a score to settle in the finals (probably to win Chihaya over XD). I'm rooting for Taichi though, just because he's had the most character development out of everyone in this show.

Love Sudo-san >< !

When Nishida saw that he was matched w/him Sudo walks past like "burn". Wasn't all that funny but I lololol'd

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


XD I had to listen to it again. Murao was auto tuned.

Ririka was CUTE! :)

Based on how this story is going, I REALLY hope there's a second season - otherwise, I'm really thinking it'll feel rushed.

Whew, for a second there I thought Chihaya was going to lose to an old lady AND a little girl. Now that would have been embarrassing.

great episode :D

i actually thought Taichi was spewing nonsense since the subs were being weird out of nowhere.

pretty surprising he memorized those hundred poems O__O



this is probably my favorite hairstyle of Chihaya!!!



Kana Chan is lovely as always!



damn that sudo guy corrupting Chihaya's mind!!

also you lost in the first round buddy, so go bald now!!!!!!!



Chihiaya liking Ririka!!

it's also funny since Ririka is like Chihaya back then, relying on speed. she can definitely relate to her and her frustration.



and lol Chihaya scream "CHOCOLATE!!" out of nowhere.

i really hate stupid people putting some high expectations on a 6th grader.



Arata get's ready for the next step, Taichi also fired up and is not willing
to give up!

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

I think I heard Chopper from One Piece in her.

Damn can I cry now???? This episode is so beautifully done, this anime is so awesome! Chihayafuru for life!

If she loses she has to shave her head xD The match with the little girl was quite interesting and rather cute :p

The ending was interesting as well.

5/5

Nice episode, I'm not weigh succession of meetings, even heats. What a cute Ririka, excellent plot and narrative that exposes flawlessly.
Do not miss anything! : D
Great dialogues of Master Harada and the unpredictability of the facts narrated.
Everything always turns around at all and never for a single character. Satisfied! * _ *

I'm surprised no one said anything about Chihaya's light blue shirt that had Karuta misspelled with a C instead of a K in front.


Ririka mist have thought Chihaya was playing her best, but Chihaya stepped it up to the next level and then she dominates Ririka.

Chihaya will need more than just speed to beat Shinobu. She's well balanced in terms of accuracy, speed, vision, patience, stamina, etc.


Taichi seems like he's getting more and more depressed. LOL at Chihaya betting her head bald.

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. :)
Arata has less screentime than Kamono and Oe, but still he is the main pillar of the show. He is the center of the show.

Last episodes, I noticed that Chihaya said often that she love Karuta,... but never Taichi.
Do he love Karuta at least? Or he do it only to be with Chihaya :s

Taichi have a dark expression in end... I'm worried :(

He doesn't love karuta, he is in it for the booty.

I also had to hold back the tears, awesome episode, execution and directing were superb.

I was really fond of Riritas backround and her personal bound with karuta, felt bad when she lost, but I was also glad that Chihaya could put her experience to use.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

CHOCOLATE!! ;D

Damn, Chihaya has to win, there is no doubt. Betting her beautiful hair was very dumb, lol.

@Dagvi , it depends on one's taste I think. To me those episodes are actually not repetitive. Sure, we have karuta in each one, but it's understandable since it is a sport anime about karuta. But on the other hand we have a lot of stories told about our main characters, so I don't feel as those episodes are repetitive.
