Chihayafuru 2 episode 09

Hmm… I could not get in the mood somehow when I watched this episode. I watched and I was happy at first. Arata was finally back and decided to watch Chihaya and her team, but then things took a strange turn.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.50_[2013.03.09_23.20.12]I was happy alright. Arata recently started playing again and he came all that way to watch Chihaya and Taichi play. Quite the friend, huh? Why is it that he ended up playing illegally for someone else’s team instead? He knows that it’ll only get him into trouble. Hell, he couldn’t even play seriously at first, because he knew that he was going to be found out just by using his regular style. He held back, even though he knew that it was frustrating for both him and his opponent. That’s why it wasn’t that much fun to watch this time. It just wasn’t interesting. He only started playing seriously after it was too late for him and his team to win.

He recognized him almost immediately and pretty much banned him from playing in the upcoming tournament. This means that Arata will not be playing against the queen, a player he has defeated in the past, or anyone else for that matter.

It’s a shame. He sacrificed all that for just a one meaningless team match. That just goes to show that no good deed goes unpunished, providing the judge doesn’t cut him some slack by letting him play after all. Doubtful, but definitely not impossible. After all, Arata, thanks to his late grandfather, has a lot of contacts in the Karuta world. Anything could happen…
