THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Aired about 50 mins. later.

Chihaya wanting to watch the game on TV at Taichi's house, and meeting Taichi's mother at home!! He's kind and led her into his room... Then followed by other members!

Mother thought he was forced to what he doesn't like to do.

Queen is getting fat?! and hiding herself in kimono. She's been acting opposite of the society because her mother doesn't like her. Though grandmother suggested her to karuta. And showing her lonely childhood that makes her really looks grown up.

Queen vs. previous queen. Yet queen's movement is still fast even though she's fat.

Chihaya is very excited when watching the game, Taichi seeing her as wanting to practice and thought he will accompany her with the practice. Queen won!

Chihaya realized that she is not connecting with the karuta. Nikuman-kun told her to look at the male sempai more (more similar to her), who is battling next against a guy (lol @ the announcer introducing him as the guy who got stayed one more year).

I don't intend to sound shallow but after waiting to see Shinobu only to see her.... change so much.... was kind of a bummer.

YEAH, FUCK YOU YAMAMOTO YUMI!
You can't contest for shit if the cameras are rolling.

I loved the episode and especially the past of Shinobu. Her smile was bright and the thought that Karuta also loved her really made me love her as a character. To think that Arata has to defeat that guy scares me though.

Weird, after this episode I wonder how they want to wrap this series up with just one episode left.

I really hope they are just going to continue the story with a second season.

SCREW EVERY CHARACTER (except Taichi) IN THIS SHOW, ESPECIALLY CHIHAYA, GOOOO SHINOBU!!!! SHINOBU >>>>>>>> CHIHAYA!

I don't think what they think of you Shinobu, you are my favorite over all the other players


EDIT: Chihaya you idiot, SHINOBU IS WAYYY FASTER THAN SUO! SHE JUST PUT ON A FEW POUNDS! SHINOBU IS NOT SCARED OF SUO!!!

Dammmmmit. Why did the others have to come, I was so excited to see Taichi and Chihaya in his room, together and alone! /shamelessfangirling

And it was pretty much obvious that Shinobu was gonna win, even with the extra weight (which I lol'ed at). That Suoh Hisashi guy is definitely shaping up to look like an antagonist of sorts...

My thoughts exactly!

When i saw Shinobu... i spnt the rest 2 minutes asking myself "Is that really her? Wait. What happened? No... Is it her?". It was such a shock xD. Shinobu's chubby cheeks are cute, i wanna pinch them xD.
"If Eren boned Historia then we'll be getting flashbacks right back to Ymir, from both of them."

Taichi's rough life continues, this week with 100% more cockblock.


Master guy looks awesome.
I'm guessing they are going to watch the master match next week, maybe?
Hopefully more happens being the last episode and all.

Everyone in Chihayafuru: MUST COCKBLOCK TAICHI!!


I paused and spent 3 minutes with a poker face looking at Shinobu... It was a WTF/LOL reaction.

Shinobu becoming more... chubby was shocking. That was a kind of weird plot twist.

The last boss isn't Shinobu, per say, but the current Master.

I liked the parallel between Chihaya's karuta style and the Master's style.

This episode was so effin good. omg.
And there was anothing tear-jerking moment between Yumin and her coach. I don't hate her.
Of course, everyone's thoughts are directed on Shinobu's weight gain. It did throw me off, but she only seems to have Karuta and Snowmaru in her life. At least she figured it out halfway through the game.
and this new master guy. Anyone else agree he is a bishi? I think Nikumakun meant that Chihaya's playing was close to his because of her amazing hearing ability that's been established throughout the series. Grrr. I want Arata to kick his butt in Karuta.

The match was so good this week :') I was hoping Taichi and Chihaya were going to be alone ._. WHY? WHY? WHY!? But I didn't get the part when Taichi said he can't dedicate himself to her... does that mean he is giving up?!

Meijin is good looking but I know he's a bad person... XD And I'm still shocked by Shinobu, how can she get so chubby?! She was so beautiful before!

I wanted them to be alone too XD And Taichi said not because he's giving up, it's because he have be a class A (what Chihaya said) so he need to learn by watching the meijin's match.

Lol, it was hilarious when Shinobu just only realized she felt heavier because she ate too much ice cream and gained weight. I like her a bit more now. When we last saw her, I thought she was pissed that someone may be able to go against her, but in reality, she just loved the karuta cards themselves.

EPIC EPISODE
Liked the small chihayaxtaichixtaichi's mom in beginning, was fun
Then games start... OPERATION NO ONE GIVES A DAMN ABOUT BROADCAST TIMES FTW
Got to see a bit of Shinobu's bio, I don't care if she got fat, reason why makes her win yo. PLus everything I know about her too. I actually didn't like her much until this episode. She turned from arrogant champ who likes cute things, to one who loves the cards and treats them as admired friends.
Sadly as expected Yumi lost though, Idk why ppl hate her so much still lol. But the support she is given and her perseverance proves she is a good person.
Anyways, the Master's match is beginning and the unknown master looks BOSS. When he grabbed that card they showed, I was LIKE WTFCRAZYFASTSONBITCH
Anyways was cool until challenger said he was starting to hate Karuta because of that game. Anyways, last episode next week, it'll be scary if theres not a second season...

0.0 Huh... Shinobu freaked me OUT when I saw how fat she was, I went like "...Wait, WTF, IS THAT SHINOBU?!" at the same time everyone else did.

But... T.T I can't believe this show's almost over already! SEASON 2! SEASON 2!!!!!

There was some great comedic scenes in this episode. I prefer the plump Shinobu, if only because it's refreshing to see rounder characters in anime. On the other hand, the Master has such an unfitting face for that stubble, like an older Taichi trying to look manly with his girly face.

With one episode left, I'm guessing it will be a "let's all work harder in Karuta" ending.

Hmm, former queen vs current queen. Oh boy.

Great match. Remember, karuta is serious business.

hahaha poor chihaya, arata mother will be a good mother in law for her from what i seen in volume 1 & 16). anyway just wait for arata to move to tokyo and spend his senior high with chihaya in tokyo, arata win or lose are already guaranteed a scholarship just hoping arata will choose an apartment near to house of chihaya.

Arata should realize that taichi see him as a rival not a friend when he move to tokyo.

Well it looks like Shinobu will drop the extra pounds now that she has gotten her snowmaru accessory, so people can add her back on their favourite lists. We've now had some 24 episodes of character development, so the main characters (as well as the main supporting characters) are pretty complete individuals. We must have a second season. I'm ready to go out and actually purchase merchandise in order to make it happen.
Please don't feed the trolls!

Indeed xD

Wow, when Arata finally get in a match against that Suo Hisashi will be great. He's really cool too (and everyone is better than Taichi).

Anyway... I'll end up reading the manga if the second season don't get announced soon. But for that it'd be nice to know in what manga chapter is the series ending...

Taichi's mom looks like some kinda witch! The matches in the episode seemed pretty intense. Makes me really want to see more of Chihaya and Shinobu play.

This.
To Yumi: How you like them apples, bitch!?


Shinobu got fat by eating icecream (or popsicles) and only realized it during her match? Wow.

I wonder if we'll ever see the love triangle break...feels like I'm watching Macross all over again.

If I were to metaphorically describe the entire show this far: "This dish's portion is too small. It's also not spicy enough; needs some more Arata."

Nowadays fatty in anime can slim down in 10 days for example Ryuuichi Araki, so we don't have to worry about snowmaru.

I kinda wanted something else to happen between Chihaya and Taichi but of course nothing happens. I wonder what he will do now that he won't "dedicate himself to Chihaya" O.o
The master looks so cool. Can't wait to see how he plays.

And I smell a second season (hopefully) in the near future

upon watching the Queen match, i had almost the same reaction as Chihaya.. that of being teary-eyed when Chihaya realized what karuta is for Shinobu.. this is why as a sports anime, this show is great.. it makes me love the sport no matter how foreign or initially bland it is.. this is in need of a 2nd season though..

Yeah, weird. So everyone just liked her because of her looks?

Another "poor Taichi" episode - though pretty much every episode is one.

I was rather surprised that they introduced another character in the second last episode. WTF?
