Chihayafuru 2 episode 17

It never seizes to amaze me every time they try to pour new things into the story. This is rapidly becoming one of those supernatural shows where the players have supernatural abilities. How ridiculous…

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.58_[2013.05.04_23.09.55]I’m kind of pissed because of that whole “a reader’s voice is different”-thing. So what if they have a professional reader this time? Don’t focus too much on those sounds. It’s bad enough that there’s a character that can only play when there’s a good reader with a clear voice present. How ridiculous is that?

Frankly, I think it’s cheating. That girl and her grandmother have played lots and lots of matches, which means that they’re used to one another. She knows how her grandmother reads and her grandmother knows how she plays. That gives her a huge advantage over Chihaya, which seems highly unfair if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.25_[2013.05.04_23.11.47]To make matters worse; Chihaya actually got into that whole “listen to her voice”-thing. She actually listened and lost herself in the reader’s voice, thinking it could help her win the match. I’m not even sure that’s true. I suppose it helps when you have an experienced reader present, but an amateur with a clear, non-stuttering voice should be just as good?

It sound like I’m complaining and all, but I’m really not. Chihayafuru always amazes me no matter what happens. The only thing I’m mad about (I wouldn’t even call it mad. I’m going with annoyed here) is that Shinobu. She’s way too arrogant and thinks that she’s invincible. The thought of seeing her lose is what’s driving me.
