Chihayafuru 2 Episode 13: To Win for the Team!


My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    I just marathoned this series for the past three days and just. WHERE HAS THIS BEEN MY WHOLE LIFE? WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO PICK IT UP? IT’S A SHOUNEN SHOUJO AND SO MUCH BRILLIANCE I CAN’T. \(; o ;)/

    ^^^^ I agree w/ pretty much everything in the above squee review. <3

    That said, I think this episode lingered a bit too much on this at match than I was hoping for. I LOVE what it's doing with the match and the feels, but–just–maybe it could have been done at a faster pace? Idek this show. It's gonna kill me to wait a week to find out more.

    And in case anyone’s interested, my OTP for this show is TAICHIxAIR so just keep breathing my precious bb, love life and be happy~

      Yeah I definitely agree that it is dragging on a bit. So either it ends half way into next week’s episode or it’ll take up the entire thing. Either way this match MUST end next week- otherwise I think that’s really pushing it- especially if they were to win, because the finals ought to be a long match as well- unless they are miraculously up again Hokuo, but I highly doubt it. XD That would be too perfect for our Tokyo Representatives wouldn’t it?

      • Hee7 says:

        Yeah. I think it has to be Fujisaki for the Finals. I feel there was too much set-up in the last five episodes (the Tokimemo 3 look-alike MC in the audience, the long-eyelashes girl-pro guy) and enough bragging by Hokuo for it not to build up to facing Fuji in the Finals. …if our beloved team wins, that is. (I love how we can be uncertain of a win!) And by Tokimemo 3 I mean Tokimemo GS (Girl’s Side) 3. Ahh… OTL

        • Eva says:

          There’s no telling whether they’ll win or not because in the end, regardless of the outcome Chihaya will probably be facing one or more of the Fujisaki’s aces during the individual tournament.

          • Hee7 says:

            Ah, that’s right! I totally forgot about the individual tournament! For some reason I figured the Individuals are for Shinobu and Arata only, but it makes sense that it isn’t. /dunce

            Do the team tournaments all take place on the same day? Then the individuals the day after…? I suppose it’s convenient for travel expenses, but geez! Monster stamina is required! @_@

            • Eva says:

              I think the Team Tournament does take up the ENTIRE day (at least this one is for sure). Talk about a LONG day! Yeah I think the individuals match takes place the next day.
