Yeah, that is where I got my info, as that is also a place where a few Chinese fan translators is active in and I believe it ond of the first place they release new chapter.

As for other site have mixed order, I might be because the file names are scrambled in that site so who ever take picture from there and didn't both to re-name them, the order is going to get messed up.


An "S" is short for sadist. As in S&M. Except in East Asia, it's not as heavily suggest on the physical side but more on a mental side. In real life and ACG term, and S-character mean character that likes to mess other people's head or pressure them into submission and had no remorse or even take pleasure in doing it. It works effective well with haraguro-type characters and usually every character can be categorical into either an S or M though it could change depend on the people they interact with.

For example, Taichi is mostly an M, Chihaya on the other hand would be an hidden S. Shinobu would be an S normally,m but it seem she turns into an M when interacting with Arata.

You forget to mention that S stands for Sudo. They are implying the certain karuta player is acting like Sudo.

Spoiler for thoughts:


Are there three years of high school in Japan and they are in 2nd year? Does anyone have any idea how many months could be left before that scene which appeared in the first chapter of first volume comes?

They should be at mid-point tight now. Japanese high school typically starts in March/April (hence all the graduation song release during this time.)

Inter-high like other school sports usually happens during in summer vacation. so they should be effectively at mid-point, half year left in 2nd year and have 1st half of year to play with before it crunch time for college entrance exams.

Though depend on school some might prohibit 3rd years from entering competition as we seen in various sport manga.

(NB: there are 3 years of Junior High and 3 years of Senior High in Japan.) Hence, I would assume that the first scene occurs in Chihaya's final year of school, i.e. about 1.5 years from where the manga is currently at.

I am an Arata Fan

Well, so far in shipping war, I was shipping Arata and Chihaya because I love the notion of love transcending time. I am a romanticist. But now I am giving up the shipping war and just being an Arata Fan because, whenever he shows up in the manga is when it just sizzles. Not only that he is the "spark" that everyone is trying to catch up to, though his spark is driven by the meijin title so presently, his goal is Suo. Everyone else in my arrogance is a stepping stone for him to rise for the challenge. His brief moments usually have more impact than any one's character besides Taichi's inner monologues. But then his inner monologues are always screaming his affections for chihaya so that we all know where his lovelorn yearnings are for. Even when we got a back story from Arata we didn't get his personal feelings, just point of view on things, we get a third person summary of the events. He's like a bit out of reach. Chihaya's has no other thoughts than Kurata and besting her rival so again we don't see much personality from her even though the manga is about her. They should rename this to Taichifuru. Because almost everything personal and thought monologues are always in his perspective. Not only that hes the only one who has grown from when he is a grade schooler.

Here's an example:

Chihaya: Simpleminded and goal is to be queen and meeting Arata who she considers a rival and god in a match since they are separated from grade school.

Arata: He has always been the same person since he was in grade school. Nice, level headed, determined to be meijin. That has not change since his friends came to see him in fuikui.

Taichi: Spoiled snot nose that everyone hates. has now changed to who he is now currently in highschool fueled by his love for Chiahya and a renew goal to rival Arata and get the meijin title.

Oh my god. I love Shinobu... Getting sick because she's looking at the matches like a creeper in the rain.

Arata is such a sadist.. n.n'''

But Chihaya.. Throughout the last 2 chapters, her mouth seems to be opened all the time... Pretty dumbfounded. Makes you want to slap her a bit. o.o;;;

Actually, Shinobu had no interest in yesterday's team match. In fact she considers that only weak player would participate in team competition.

Wasn't she just being tsundere about it though? I mean, I think she does care about the other players and team competitions, but probably didn't want to admit it, hence that excuse. At least, chapter 91 seems to imply she does care.
