Arata losing to Chihaya makes it a a good time to drop this manga.

agreed. tho i dropped this a long time ago. her winning just made it seem a really good decision.

We never SEE that she definitely changes it. She's asked if she wants to and she says, "Yes, I should . . ." and any normal reader, which most of us are, would assume that means she does. But the mangaka - the clever, devilish mangaka - pulls some textual/graphic sleight of hand on us. Look on the next page, for example, and take a second look at the others' expressions as she ties WHICHEVER headband on: they have that shocked, dreamy expression, like something surprising and meaningful happened.... like Chihaya's choice of headband after all.

Can't tell if clever and intentionally left vague for interpretation to surprise us later (I brushed off their expressions as no more than "she looks so much better now that everything is in correct order")... or if just sloppy story-telling that didn't make it more  clear she put on the same headband. I opt for the latter, but that's just me being a pessimist. Suetsugu...

i just like the fact there's a "new beginning" coming soon... (jokingly, are both boys gonna follow chihaya to college? ^_^)

Shinobu's grnadmother seems to be pushing for professional karuta so maybe professional teams in the future?

Hyoro is an underappreciated character and I'm so happy for him.

 

I guess the last page of this chapter makes it official: Taichi is back from war absence.

Spoiler

 

I hope that in the future; Taichi, Arata and Chihaya can play in a team match together.

Even if it's for something silly like a Taichi cup, I think it would be lovely to see them in the same team again.

Aaaaa it's too bad about this match though!!!!

Spoiler

 

UGDHFGDFDFH IM SO STRESSED AND HYPED ABOUT THIS MANGA

I'm sorry what? More like Taichi is the one out now.

That's cute. :3 You're cute. :3

 

 

 

I legitimately grabbed a couple of tissues before I read this chapter because I anticipated all the feels - and it delivered!

Great chapter, right in the feels! I'm so curious about what will happen from now on, I'm really really hyped.

RIP ARATA SHIP YOU'VE BEEN PEARL HARBOURED

RIP ARATA SHIP YOU'VE BEEN PEARL HARBOURED

 

I doubt he's transitioning back easily into Mizusawa like that. The repeated "it's too late" implies that things aren't all dandy.

RIP ARATA SHIP YOU'VE BEEN PEARL HARBOURED

Hyoro's mental message to Mashima: Just you watch...

Mashima's T-shirt: Whatever you say...

 

I laughed

Arata losing to Chihaya makes it a a good time to drop this manga.

hi 

what happened to chapters between 50 - 86???

they were never here. read my comment below

hi

The smile she gave arata :')

... was the secret weapon against him in bhattle ;d

nevermind...

Wasn't Shinobu sick when playing against Arata? Also she wasn't playing seriously for the first half of the match (if I remember correctly).


Arata is undefeated against Shinobu. I can't remember how many times exactly he's beatin' her but it's like 4-0 lol. So even if she was healthy, the chances of Shinobu beating Arata was still very small.

Shinobu > Chihaya
Arata > Shinobu
Chihaya > Arata

 

Chihaya > Arata > Shinobu??? :S

edit:

Idk about Chihaya being better than Arata yet lol. Remember he chose not to go for that last card and as that other dude with glasses was saying Arata was as calm as ever during the match. But I will say she is definitely on his level now. So to be more accurate it's like Chihaya =/< Arata.

Now as for the chapter, I kind of feel disappointed for Arata. He really wanted Chihaya to "notice" him in their match but Chihaya never even once acknowledged his presence until she realized Taichi was in the room lol. I think that played a role in Arata not going for the last card, maybe he realized that the Chihaya he fell in love with is not the same Chihaya anymore (not saying that's a bad thing, as people do change). After all his best memories of her were from when they were kids. He hasn't really seen her struggles etc. Of course I'm sure the other reason why he chose not to go for the card was because the rest of his team lost so he's like what's the point lol. I'm really interested in the next chapter because I'm sure it will give us a little more input into what Arata is thinking right now.

 

I feel like I'm missing something. How did he choose not to go for the last card? I did a quick reread of the last few pages and the only thing I can see that might lead to that conclusion is that Chihaya is WAY faster than him on the last card - he's only sort of mid-swipe. But I feel like it's an assumption to say that he chose to let her have the card. But again, I might be missing something here!

I wish Chihaya would marry Karuta already so that every ship here will sink (Including mine). I enjoyed the matches, while I find the romantic developments recently (the edgy chapter) kind annoying. Sorry taichi fans. 

Shinobu > Chihaya
Arata > Shinobu
Chihaya > Arata
 
Chihaya > Arata > Shinobu??? :S
