Chihayafuru 2 episode 02

It’s Chihayafuru time once again! I’ve covered the first season, so why not the second season as well? You can say whatever you want about Chihayafuru, but at least I won’t have to worry about getting an eyeful of gay guys making gay games.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.37_[2013.01.19_22.40.50]We continued where we left off; with the Karuta club’s elimination process. They received a lot of applications from various students, but only a select few have got what it takes to join the Karuta club and play in tournaments. The rest is useless and has no place in the club, and everyone knew that, everyone but Chihaya that is.

Perhaps that’s why Chihaya was so disappointed when there were only two people left, and one of those two only stayed because she’s interested in Taichi. What kind of messed up season is this? How disgraceful. How tasteless. How ridiculously simple. How unbelievably perfect! It makes me very impatient to watch the remaining twenty-three episodes.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.43_[2013.01.19_22.41.17]I just want to end this post by briefly talking about these two new characters, Akihiro and Hinako. Hinako is a very straightforward girl. She (thinks she) knows what she wants, she (thinks she) knows how to get it, and she just goes for it. That’s Hinako. However, the magic of Karuta will soon steal her heart, I’m sure of it. She’s clearly interested in it, although it’s probably because Taichi likes it.

Akihiro is by far a more fascinating case. I think this character is absolutely great. He’s funny, shows a lot of promise and he, too, knows what he wants to do from here on out. Sure, he has his downsides as well, just like with Hinako, but those are rather silly. He just wants to be the best of the best. Pretty ignorant for a newbie, but very commendable. He’s the kind of character that you might want to keep an eye on. I can’t wait for more!
