Chihayafuru 2 episode 18

Warning: some of you Chihayafuru fans are probably not going to like this particular post. You have been warned. If you are indeed a Chihayafuru fan, living with your parents and have way too much free time to waste on trolling because you don’t have a girlfriend, please do not read any further.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.52_[2013.05.11_23.23.20]It’s been three weeks since this match started. Yes, it’s the tournament finale, good for them. Does that mean that we get to endure this for four weeks? I must admit that it was excited during the first two episodes, and that I was eagerly waiting for this one as well, but I’m quite disappointed now that it’s here.

Frankly, it is starting to look like one of those basic episode where the main characters struggle during most of the match, only to gain momentum and energy at the very end that will win them the match. I’ve seen several Chihayafuru matches that went down like that, so that is why I’m really hoping that Chihaya will lose this one.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.42_[2013.05.11_23.23.55]It’s no biggie, Arata isn’t even there personally. He’s stuck in a room until it’s all over, otherwise he’ll be disqualified from playing in the near future. Don’t even get me started how Shinobu, the current queen, started to get jealous of Chihaya and her friends. She doesn’t have any friends, right? So what, she doesn’t really deserve them with an attitude like hers.

I’m afraid that I might have been mistaken. I was looking forward to the second season of Chihayafuru, but now I’m starting to think that another twenty-six episodes may have been too much. Thirteen short, yet powerful episodes should’ve been enough to make up a good ending. But hey, that’s just one guy’s opinion, which is based on a single (rather disappointing) episode.
