I wonder what will happen to Chihaya if they do something similar with Daddy Bear?

I wouldn't worry about that. Taichi and the others will be around to make sure that never happens.

Suddenly that Suo dude piqued my interest, but probably the only downside is that Arata seems to take an even more backseat role in this episode. And the way Suo is portrayed as, it seems a little unlikely he will be unseated as master anytime soon by anyone, not even Arata for now.

But only 25 episodes? Another season is needed to fully tell the tale of Chihaya's passion!

I am afraid this anime will serve only as a commercial for the manga. The series obviously wont have a satisfying ending... well not the kind I expected. We wont even get to see how Chihaya, Taichi and Arate become good buddies again.

Frankly though, I dont mind that there wont be a second season. Truth is, the karuta duels are becoming a bit repetitive. It is the same thing all the time occationally interrupted by Chihayas sudden moments enlightment that sound pretty cheese more often than not.
The series started off as interesting and if they built in more romance or slice of life moments, it might have kept me content, but to be quite honest, I found myself yawning during the fight between Yumin and Shinobu.

Yep, but if not for them, she'd probably end up like Shinobu. I guess her sister might stop her too.

Hmm, on second thoughts, I'm not sure she'd go that far for Daddy Bear. We've been shown a couple times that her priorities are: Karuta >>>>> Daddy bear > the rest. On the other hand, I get the impression Snowmaru is almost as important to Shinobu as Karuta.

I think it's just that Shinobu likes cute things, Snowmaru, the pictures on the Karuta cards. If its something cute she takes interest, otherwise she doesn't seem to care.

I don't think anyone's mentioned yet what I thought was the episode's most surprising moment. When Chihaya asked Taichi to fetch his karuta set, he ignored her. He chose karuta over Chihaya for what I believe is the very first time. Karuta has finally become as important as Chihaya is to Taichi.

Okay I know this is a really late reply. I remembered reading this but didn't pay attention until Wandering Dreamer mentioned it to me again on Twitter.

But thanks so much for pointing this out, I have bought both volumes and now I am eagerly waiting to be able to read Chihayafuru in English. They probably won't come until May (because I am shipping it something else that is not released until end of April).

I'll let people know how the translations are when I get them. Hopefully they will be translating more than just two volumes. I hope interest is up for these because I would be happy to buy the manga this way if it's never released in the states (it is a bit expensive but for this series I think it
s totally worth the cost).

There's plenty of exemples of "utilizing ambiguous rules" in soccer but there's nothing ambiguous about what Henry did,he flat out broke a rule.
Oh but you're disregarding all those conditions I put before saying that he played as he was supposed to. I don't condone what he did whatsoever. It is only from the perspective of a very strict definition of competitive play that he did what he had to win and it was the fault of the officials for not catching it and not his for trying it. I dislike it when people focus on one part of my post only when my posts are longwinded and I count on having everything in there read and pondered over to get my point across but there's no helping it I guess

Anyway, I wonder how they will end the anime. Any ideas?

So, only one more episode of the series?

I just started watching the show since it was new this season and loved it. I want to know more of the story but can't find the manga anywhere.

It's been pointed out that Chihayafuru V. 16 was the #1 ranked manga last week, selling 212K copies in its first week. It wasn't against debuts from any of the shounen powerhouses, but that's still the best week I can recall for Chihayafuru. It's still a longshot we get a 2nd season, but every little bit helps.

Checking ANN for the previous numbers and it looks as followed:
Vol. 13 (June) sold 169k in the first week
Vol. 14 (September) sold 171k in the first week
Vol. 15 (December) sold 192k in the first week

There is clearly an increase after the anime started, hopefully it's significant enough for a second season.

Which is why I think this is a tough call. Both sales (manga increase and DVD)and ratings are doing above average, but not quite enough to have a definitive call on S2 ATM.

On the other had, I think an live action is very likely based on the volume of sales on manga and that might be the key for any potential season 2.
