Chihayafuru 2 episode 05

I am really pissed off here. Are you guys aware that I had to download this episode four times in order to actually wait it? The first three attempts to download this episode ended up in corrupt, unwatchable versions of Chihayafuru. I really need to focus more on torrents.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.34_[2013.02.09_23.25.30]I’ll get straight to it; Chihaya’s team is horrible right now. What happened to all the teamwork? Those two new members really tipped the balance, I think. Nobody seems to be able to focus, plus some of the members, including Taichi, get easily distracted by their opponents. They already defeated them last year, so what’s with the struggle? This was a real eye-opener, if anything.

I knew that those two new members came with a risk. We all knew. Spending time to teach them the game will result in someone not being able to train properly. I knew right away that Yuusei would have it the hardest. It was up to him to train the newbies, so I immediately knew that his skill would drop like a rock in water. It’s a shame, because that guy is usually one of the best players in the team.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.22_[2013.02.09_23.26.13]I was actually surprise to see that Taichi was having such a hard time. He’s the team captain and the guy that’s usually so composed. How can it be that he completely went to pieces? He couldn’t stay focussed and kept looking around, not to mention that he got influenced by his opponent. He might as well have thrown in the towel.

There were only two that were really doing well, which would be Chihaya and Kanade. They kept trying to play according to their own style instead of letting their opponents influence them. Chihaya gets a special shout out here, as she was still trying to work on her own style. She is planning on using the best sides of the king and queen’s gaming styles. Not bad, Chihaya. Kind of reminds me of Blade; “the best of both, but none of their weaknesses.” I’ll be looking forward to seeing the result of that.
