Chihayafuru 2 episode 06

Just one more post to write today, huh? Well, let’s make it a good one (yeah right). I must admit that I wasn’t actually looking forward to seeing this episode, as I already had an idea of what was going to happen. For your information: I was right.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.23_[2013.02.16_23.16.44]I fired up the episode as I continued to watch Chihaya’s team in yet another tough spot. It’s nice that Chihaya turned it up a notch. She’s been working hard at it, so it’s nice to see that she’s improving. But we cannot get cocky by thinking that Chihaya alone can ensure that her team wins. It’s a team match, so everyone is responsible.

I was actually surprised by the amount of things that you learn about Kurata during this episode. It is very difficult to do that, you know? The concepts of informative and entertaining don’t usually walk hand-in-hand. It’s hard to keep something entertaining when you’re teaching people about new things, which explains why school sucks so much. My teachers failed in that.

It was a five versus five team match, which means that Chihaya’s team would need to win at least three out of five games to win the team match. It was natural for Yuusei to have felt so bad about losing, but it was really Chihaya’s fault, too. She was too relaxed. She failed to see what her opponents were up to when they were sending cards, allowing them to place their cards in the worst position possible. This made winning almost impossible for Chihaya’s team. It’s amazing that she still managed to hold out until the very last second, but Chihaya’s undying honesty is what made them lost the match. I like that about her, and that is why I’ll faithfully continue to follow this amazing show.
