Chihayafuru Ep 10: Tokyo Regionals Begins!

Chihaya and her team take part of the Tokyo Regionals for the National High School Karuta Championship and fight through the competition. However Komano grows frustrated as he fails to gain a card or win his first game while Kana does. Declaring to step out, Chihaya finds herself unable to concentrate and puts her victory at risk.


Impression:

AHHHH SUCH A GREAT EPISODEEEEE!!!!!!
KANA-CHAN GOT HER FIRST WIN!!!


YOU GO GIRL!


DAMNIT ALL THAT WE COULDN’T SEE IT!


AND ITS TOTALLY OFFICIAL THAT ARATA x CHIHAYA x TAICH IS MY FIRST EVER OT3!


SCREW THE RULES, WHILE I DO SHIP CHIHAYA x ARATA, TAICHI IS MAKING THIS FAR TOO DIFFICULT TO CHOOSE!!!!
ALSO ON THE EXTRA SHIPPING NOTE,  I AM TOTALLY SHIPPING KAMANO AND KANA!!!

WHAT IS AIR?!
*BREATHES*
This is bad, at this rate I might end up suffocating…

The episode was just absolutely stunning, breathtaking, awesome- and continues living up to our expectations! Best of all, Chihaya almost lost because she started to feel overwhelmed by the argument that happened during their break. As result she lost her beloved Chihaya card – and that just hurts. It shows when she loses focus, she isn’t playing at her full potential. Well it’s not like we didn’t quite know that, since well- focus is one of the keys to succeeding in this sport.

 Komano, he’s pretty selfish but I do understand why he feels that way. The frustration of not being gain a single victory like Kana had and basically being the only one who keeps on losing, is pretty overwhelming and a nasty feelings. But the problem with Komano is that he tends to give us too early in the game. He lacks the determination to pull through a tough situation, but it’s also because he doesn’t share the same passion as the rest of them do towards Karuta. Once he finds his passion and motivation to press on despite all his losses, then he will win his first game.

It was super awesome of Taichi to scatter the cards into her face to snap her out of it and relay a message to their team. I loved how he stepped up to calm everyone down and pat them on the head, Duck duck GOOSE! even though he was partially responsible for having allowed Komano to sit out. But during that time, he made a good point that they – the team are still playing individually rather than as a team.

AND HOLY CRAP. You know Taichi looked so freaking handsome this episode! He looks absolutely marvellous in green!!!


PURE EYE CANDY I TELL YOU! NOW I WANNA SEE ARATA IN A YUKATA!!!!/SHOT
ASJDLKASJDAS I can’t get over the awesomeness of every character!

I’m looking forward to Sudo (?) going against Chihaya! I’m super amused how he’s apparently a sadist and identifies Chihaya as a sadist as well – but she’s far from it. This should be exciting to watch! I’m all pumped up for it!

GIVE US THE NEXT EPISODE, IT’S SO AWESOME  I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THIS SHOW!

    I loved today’s episode so much! It was awesome, just pure awesome! oh and I know that I will face-palm after someone answers this but… when Taichi said “we both feel that Chihaya…belongs to both of us.” what does that mean? please don’t make fun of me…I am as dense as Chihaya, if not slightly less dense. It’s a curse i’m afraid. Oh yeah I probably already mentioned but I so ship Chihaya x Arata! they look adorable together, plus I also ship Komano and Kana-chan as well! ^.^

    (I must admit…Taichi…you looked very handsome in a yukata…)

      THREESOME!!! 8Db
      Just kidding coughthoughit’sprobablytruecough
      I believe it just means that he only acknowledges Arata to be with Chihaya if it isn’t himself, but truthfully, Taichi wants her all to himself. :3

      //but I so ship Chihaya x Arata! they look adorable together, plus I also ship Komano and Kana-chan as well! ^.^//

    ha ha! Eva you’re awesome! I’m glad that someone likes Chihaya x Arata as much as I do! ^.^ It makes me sad that some Chihaya x Arata fans turned to Chihaya x Taichi fans just cause Arata hasn’t had much screen time or because they saw episode 9…oh well right? I will stay strong and ship Chihaya x Arata til the end! (please don’t shoot me Vantage…but…Arata is more smexy then Taichi, and he does have a chance!*runs away and hides*)

    but when chihaya missed her card…I was at a loss for words and then I suddenly screamed “WHAT?!” but i’m glad things got better for the team!

    p.s…Chihaya x Arata FTW!
