Chihayafuru 2 episode 19

How bitterly disappointing. I’m sure that most Chihayafuru fans are ecstatic about this episode, but I just can’t help but feel disappointed by the predictability of it all. It really could’ve been different if you ask me.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.41_[2013.05.18_23.28.35]So yeah, I knew Chihaya and her team would win, and I also know which one of her team members would lose their matches. It was quite clear that the new guy would lose, probably no doubt in anyone’s mind about that one. I also knew that our four-eyed friend would lose as well, just like he knew he would. That make things a whole lot easier to predict. We must factor in the fact that we’re rapidly nearing the season ending, so the chances of them losing such an important match would be very small. Its things like that that make the story very predictable.

[HorribleSubs] Chihayafuru S2 - 19 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.59_[2013.05.18_23.28.58]So Chihaya’s team is officially the best in Japan, huh? That’s quite disappointing, especially since they won by luck instead of skill. It was quite an interesting play to finish with a double fifty/fifty play, even I must admit that, but the result was too obvious to enjoy. Everyone knew that they were going to win at the point.

My opinion about this episode is obvious, yet I’m still looking forward to next week’s episode. Arata is finally in the big picture again and I’m sure we all want to watch him “pwn” Shinobu, the current queen, for the second time. She is way too cocky for her own good, I simply dislike personalities like that.
