Chihayafuru 2 episode 10

This might just have been the single most aggravating Chihayafuru episode so far. For a second there I thought blood was pouring out from underneath my fingernails. I don’t know, maybe I’m overreacting? I’ve been told that I do that sometimes.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.20_[2013.03.16_23.30.44]I’ll get to Arata and his messed up situation later, but let us first focus on Chihaya’s team match. I totally hate the kind of person that thinks that he or she can do anything by thinking things through. Life doesn’t work like that, I know. There was only one Karuta fanatic amongst them, just one. The rest thought they could win match after match by continuously switching cards and memorize them before their opponents do. It’s a way, I guess, but it’s not nearly as effective when you are playing against players that play defensively. They learned that the hard way when they were getting their asses handed to them.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.40_[2013.03.16_23.30.51]The second part was when Arata wanted to accept his punishment for breaking the rules (playing with a team that he wasn’t part of), but avoided his punishment because of Shinobu, the current “Queen of Karuta”. It’s really unfair that rules get bent like that… Lord knows that such a thing doesn’t work for most of us. We’d get punished right away.

I thought this episode was aggravating because of all that. Cocky players and corrupt judges… Yeah, that’ll do it. I would be lying if I said that I’m not a little bit glad that Arata is still in the game. I guess I’ll have to wait and see if the upcoming episodes make up for this. Ah hell, I’m sure they will, it’s Chihayafuru we’re talking about here.
