Funny! "People who haven't memorized Hundred Poets are bugs." Love that line! And I thought Nishida's sister stole the episode: her chibi form was pure lol!!!

Still, an interesting episode. Interesting to see what the writers selected as key moments in the earlier episodes. Plus the teasing on the romance was completely over the top. I hope native-speakers can provide some comment on the various idioms chosen for Taichi, Chihaya, and Arata.

The episode title is from the 26th poem of the Hyakunin Isshu. Thus Mostow:

O autumn leaves
on the peak of Ogura Hill,
if you have a heart,
I would that you would wait
for one more royal progress.

Apparently the "royal progress" refers to seasonal expeditions made by the emperor on the Oi river. This episode is similarly an excursion out of the narrative, so the title may amount to a request to the reader to show patience while the main story is interrupted.

Everyone loves Kana! even Chihaya! "There's only one possible answer"--so true!

Well recaps are always boring, but the little side jokes they had were funny. The opening scene with her sister was just hilarious.

Recap episode... does that count as episode 16 or is it actually a 15.5? XD

Well what can I say, Kana-chan (unintentionally whatever xD) owning Taichi... "Jack of all trades, master of none" can't say I did not love that! XDDDD (But no, my hate for Taichi is over, he developed into something better in the last episodes... XP)

And Nishida tsundere sister, wtf! She got a crush on Desktomu! XD And Desktomu was all Don Juan over Kana in those idioms game, way to go man! He's such a playa!~

"Don't answer that question, it will spoil the anime!" lol

Let me admit it, I hate recap episodes but those comedy sketches in it were a really smart way of doing what is almost always terrible in a fun way.

The deadpan "Congratulations, Kanna" was pretty fantastic. I forgot how much I liked mini-Chihiya's voice.

They still did answer that question though. Didn't you see that Harada-sensei appeared right there.

Wait a recap episode? That sucks when we only have a limited amount of episodes in the first place.

Was there anything new in this ep? If it's just recap I don't think I'll bother watching it.


edit: In other news Chihayafuru is one of Funi's options in their new survey...Please Vote for it (not that I think it has a chance to get licensed with the way sports series sell in the US but one can dream)

The new parts were omake-like quickie scenes spread throughout the episode that were both comic and shed some light on the main characters' thoughts about their fellow characters. I think they should be watched for their insight and their humor. Also I found the actual recap scenes as compelling during the second viewing as they were the first time around. But you could fast forward through them if you want to save time.

I have a non-spoiler question for manga readers. Were these omake scenes in the manga or were they anime original?

Most of them are in the manga. The author uses the extra pages in tankoban to draw bunch of short stories/4-koma mostly centers around Chihaya's or Nishida's sister. She also use it to reinforce some character personality in a breaking-4th wall type of way.

BEST. RECAP. EVER.

Those omake scenes had me on the floor. And I never realized Kana was stacked

Poor Taichi, dude can't catch a break

Well I did speed through the recap to the Omake (I guess I don't like recaps, I'd rather watch the entire episodes again). However the omake were hilarious. My favorite

It was nice to see Arata with a flaw at last. (Though I can't blame him...)

WTF recap episode? I give this episode a 1/10....

What is up with Madhouse and recap episodes. I remember Death Note and Nana having one, and even Kaiji II. What the hell.

Gah, FU Madhouse, every week Chihayafuru has proven to be a beacon of light for anime, but today was drowned by the darkness of a pointless recap.

Sadly, only the initial omakes were funny, so I'll have to hand a bad score for the first time of 3/10 >.>

Re-cap episodes ftw, eh?

It is kind of a pity to use a re-cap in a shorter series like this. I always kinda thought they had their place in longer series when it was easy to lose track of the story because of so much going on for so long.

But to be honest I don't have the heart to vote on it, because I feel it isn't fair, somehow....

Ah well.

There's new stuff in there, and very good too - very funny manga omakes and some sly character development with the fourth wall broken. Worth watching - but yes, disappointing in that it's 80% recap.

I usually don't like recap as well. I don't mind one in mid-to-long series that has at least 3-cour worth of episodes, but for a 2-cour series it's really unnecessary.

I mean if they have to have one, they should have it around episode 12-14 during the season changes where it's more likely to pick up new viewer and not at episode 16 where it instead of kills the momentum.


On the other hand, this episode isn't bad and as I mentioned at least they add omake that are canon to the series.

Honestly I'm extremely disappointed that Kana never answered who she would like to date with (Tsutomu?)

Nice ep 16, even if it is only a recap, but there are some really funny extras!

And after hearing the music of ep 16, Chihayafuru really has the best backgroundmusic of all anime this season in my opinion!

I want OST so bad...

Quite disappointed that the new episode was mostly recaps, in my view, i prefer seeing the progress of their training and the relationship between the three childhood friends more. About halfway through i just skipped through the entire episode just to listen to the ED, nothing is better after a long day than a soothing song.
