    I don’t know how to feel about this. I was so giddy at the end and was yelling at Chihaya going, “GOD DAMN IT, SPIT IT OUT ALREADY!” and then scolding her, “WHY DIDN’T YOU JUST SAY THE ENTIRE POEM!?”

    Arata looked so cool this episode, even though he didn’t have much screen time. I was laughing hysterically how he didn’t cut any slack for the poor kid- but at least the kid had a good attitude. XD

    I continue to pity Taichi just because he’s such a good guy. DAMNIT, WHY DO BOTH GUYS HAVE TO BE SO FREAKING AWESOME?! I’ve never in my experience of shipping business been so conflicted about who I would ship! THEY MAKE IT SO DIFFICULT TO CHOOSE! But I chose Arata, therefore I feel bad for Taichi. *SOBS*

    With the fangirling and giddiness aside; I’m terribly concerned about how they are going to finish this. The way things are going, they MUST, MUST, ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO, AGAIN- MUST, have a second season. It’s so anticlimax right now, there’s no major development happening at the moment, except for a tiny bit in romance.

    I’m going to take a FIT! if they create a dreamscape in the finale and rush through the episode going, “training, trainning blah blah blah” and all that bs and go, “BOOM QUEEN MATCH- GO!”

    At this point, for the love of god- they need to announce that it will either be CONTINUEING and not ending at 25 episodes like Phi Brain or at least CONFIRM there will be a second season ASAP- or give us a hint since they don’t necessarily announce it right after the show ends.

    This show is a masterpiece, it doesn’t deserve to have a shitty ending, it deserves to unfold properly and have a solid conclusion.

    — Anyhow if we do get to see the Queen match between Yumi and Shinobu,
    I’m cheering for Shinobu because she’s awesome and it would be incredibly badass and exhilarating to see her DESTROY Yumi! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!/SHOT

    Am I the only one who has absolutely no scare whatsoever that this is going to end badly? To be honest, they could do anything like get Chihaya to fight against Arata and beat him or something, and it would make a fine ending. Moreover, this show moves me everytime so in my head it’s impossible for them to screw this over.

    Also… The romance in this show drives me nuts because I fangirl so much, although the way things are going it doesn’t look like any pairing will happen. Now I can only hope for the second season… Which, if it doesn’t happen, might just make me believe that the producers are retarded because this show is incredible.

      Chihaya beating Arata would be pretty unrealistic at this point, but there’s always the hope that everything will work out, we’ll get an amazing ending and we all worried over nothing.

      And no matter how much Chihaya x Arata support there is, somewhere deep down, we all know we’re Taichi fans. He needs some sort of reward for being such a selfless guy all this time.

        I still love ARAAAAAATAAAAAAAA much much much more ^.^ The way Taichi was represented this episode probably gave him many more fans though, he was really nice in this one, and made me fangirl a little (not as much as another person though ^.^)
