No, in the second method they each have a deck of all fifty cards and deal out twenty-five. They are not dividing a single deck of fifty between them.

I'm not trying to be pedantic here; I'm just trying to understand the process.
It's definitely the first method. As for who deals - I think when they kneel down, they have their 25 cards waiting for them in a pile, so I suppose tournament officials do it.

And, to return to the original question, is each deal of fifty cards unique to that match? Indeed, are the fifty dealt in one match different from the fifty used in another? I would think that is the only way a situation like Tsutomu's match against Akaishi Girls could happen, one where only that pair had the two unread cards. Thinking about that again tells me the odds of it happening are even smaller than I originally thought because this situation only occurs when none of the other four pairs has either of the remaining cards.

I don't know the methodology, but it seems to me that a great deal of plot developments in Chihayafuru would make no sense if the same 50 cards weren't being used in all five matches.

Bah, Arata. Don't you see Shinobu just wants to spend more time with you, you blockhead?

Well, at least she did stop by the team match just in time for the finals. Wonder how her presence is going to affect Chihaya or the granddaughter kid...

Impressive. Even to my untrained ears she sounded different.

Not really.
If each pair does have the same set of cards, the only way the 5-way luck draw will happen if each were even.

But with Tsutomu's situation with him being the only one left, doesn't mean that the other 4 pairs didn't have any of those cards, but there's ended first.

The other 4 pairs ending first because one side managed to dominate the other, and coming down to 1 left is a much more common scenario than a 5-way luck draw.

What HandOfFate said. A match can take anything from 25 to 49 readings of live cards, depending on how close it is. You don't need to read all the cards on a field to decide a game. Just enough for one player to gain 25 cards.

So, yeah, all five matches (and for that matter, all matches being played at the same time) have the same 50 cards.

Managed to catch up to latest episode.
Damn, I keep falling in love with the character interaction in this serie.

One question.
Do you think they hire a real certified reader of Karuta on episode 15?
Her voice seem different with other reader so far.

Ah, yesh. That's why her voice different from the usual seiyuu voice.

A match can take less than 25 live card readings. The minimum amount is in fact zero, if 25 dead cards are read in a row while the same player keeps touching a card with each reading he/she would lose the match.
The minimum amount of continuously live card reading that can determine a winner is 13. This involves a player taking the right card while his opponent touches the wrong card 13 times in a row this creates a two card lead per reading.

The reason for this is that matches can take a lot longer if each pair is using a different set of 50 cards (there'd be a lot more pausing so that players can retrieve cards etc).

So, as Anh Minh implies, it also applies for the individual matches in the High School tournament - all the matches taking place in the same location, with the same reader, use the same 50 cards (though these 50 are randomly split between each pair). It's the organisers who set it all up, it seems.

The opponent would actually have to be touching a card on the wrong side of the field (i.e. on the opposite side to the read card), as it's not a fault if he/she touches a card on the same side as the read card.

So yeah, near impossible

 2013-04-21, 07:28 Link #931 Kirarakim Senior Member     Join Date: Aug 2007 Once again Taichi thoughts go to Arata and it has nothing to do with his feelings for Chihaya. But Taichi I don't care if he looks like him don't compare that pervert to Arata. Arata, your fatal flaw is your a goody two shoes. But I still love you! Kana...I feel so bad for her. Shinobu is awesome. I loved her snowman undergarments. I watched this episode 2 days late and now I have 2 days less to wait for episode 16 (it's still torture though). So I've been thinking at the least this team match will take one more episode. It's very likely it will take 2 more episodes. That leaves us with only 8 or 9 episodes for the individual match. I don't think Chihaya will get to the finals this time with both Shinobu and Arata playing. Taichi's could possibly win his B-match and finally get to Class-A Will any of the other team members move up as well? Will Kana even be able to play at all with her finger injured? Also Sumire hasn't played at all this entire time. But I expect she will play during the individual match. Of course she hasn't been playing this whole time, but could all the games she has watched actually benefit her play? __________________

It'd be nice for Taichi if Arata had the same big breast fetish, though...

I'd rather they share the love of the same author or something like that.

edit: Okay obviously I read that wrong

See I can't help myself I ultimately see them as friends not rivals (even though they are both).

Taichi could be his wingman or introduce him to some of his big breasted fans (he's got to have some) or something, and keep slender Chihaya to himself.

Hey

He'd still be his karuta rival though.

edit: So has anyone confirmed if the series uses actual professional readers for the series?

Omi Jingu was promoting the series when I was in Japan. And there was also a promotion going on at the 100 poem museum in Arashiyama.

So I don't think it is out of the question that the series could get real readers to voice act for the show.

I believe this is the first time they've gotten an actual reader. A well-known one, anyway.

And for the record, Taichi of course has no way of knowing the Fujisaki dude is a breast otaku when he compares him to Arata - it's strictly a physical resemblance.

I know I know I was just being silly.

Not sure if Taichi could beat Arata yet but he BETTER beat that pervert. Taichi do it for Kana who cannot play and for your female fans out there!

It's no different from how poker's depicted in movies. In real life most hands come down to two pair vs three of a kind, but in films every hand of every game involves a full house or straight flush, and two pairs only come up if someone's bluffing.

And don't even get started on Saki ...

Well - no, it's completely different. There's no way, for example, that the across-the-board luck-of-the-draw finish vs. Hokuo could have happened if every game was using a different set of 50 cards. The odds against it would be millions-to-one.

And I've played a lot of poker, and seen more hands won with single pairs and Ace-high than two pairs or three of a kind...

 2013-04-21, 10:03 Link #940 Kirarakim Senior Member     Join Date: Aug 2007 I definitely think the same cards are used for each team match. Wasn't that confirmed today when Taichi was like the Chihayaburu card is not on the field? And also when we saw Houko use a split card strategy (that only works if every team member is using the same cards). Now I am not sure if all teams playing at the same time have the same cards? Like does the Houko VS Megumu team match have the same cards as Mizusawa VS Fujisaki. __________________
