So close and yet so far away… It’s getting harder and harder to hang in there. There’s really only one match that piques my interest, so watching something else at this point can be hard if they continue to focus on in so much.
Chihaya’s out of the game, right? She lose to Shinobu, right? Why oh why did I have to watch more of her? I was really looking forward to seeing the match between Arata and Shinobu… So why did Daichi’s match take priority? I know a lot of fans would love to see him move up to A class, even I must admit he deserves it. But, please, not at the cost of Arata’s match.
That’s not all, they even focussed a little bit on some unknown character that was busy with his reader exam, hoping to become a certified reader. The fact that he almost coughed up a lung during Daichi’s match must have cost him that exam.
Now, I am done with Chihaya and her team for now. I’ve been watching two whole seasons of it and it’s starting to get to me. I want to see Arata and Shinobu, nothing more and nothing less. Saving the best for last is understandable, but what about the ending? A match between those two cannot be counted as a proper ending, no matter what the outcome of that match. I can only hope that their match ends next week or during the first ten minutes of the last episode. Anymore and the ending is bound to be dreadful, provided they’re not going to continue the story in a third season.Read More
For the love of… Why? Why did they spent almost an entire episode on this crap? Enough is enough already. They’ve been dragging things out for too long now. It’s probably going to be another corny ending if the pace doesn’t pick up.
So they actually focussed the match between Chihaya and Shinobu. Why? Everyone knew that Chihaya didn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell, yet they still focussed on it. It didn’t matter, because Chihaya still would’ve lost if she played her in tip-top condition. But to spend almost an entire episode on a match where the outcome was already predicted before it even starting is stupid. There was so much that I’d rather have seen, but no… Chihaya simply had to take the spotlight again. It’s annoying when it’s always the same character.
I also don’t see the point of focussing on Shinobu’s past. We all know why she doesn’t have friends. What’s the point of focussing on it? Are we supposed to watch yet another dramatic struggle as Chihaya does her best to become friends with Shinobu? It’s bad enough that we have to put up with her strange idiosyncrasies.
I really wouldn’t give Chihayafuru another season at this point. Just make the last three episodes count by showing us that match between Shinobu and Arata. Perhaps the last ten minutes could be used to end things with a touching party where everyone gets together or whatever. Just don’t focus any more on Chihaya, please.Read More
Okay, enough is enough. I keep seeing the same thing over and over again. This was supposed to be the moment where Arata and Shinobu take the stage, not Chihaya and her team again. When is it enough?
I still can’t believe that Chihaya stood in the spotlight again. She’s been the favourite all season long, taking up most of the screen-time. Just because she has a handicap this time doesn’t mean you should pamper her any longer than you already have. It’s getting really ridiculous if you ask me, but this could be just me overreacting again.
How childish for people to get excited when Chihaya switched her cards to the other side. She’s using her other arm this time, so it’s not all that surprising that she did everything differently. So why is it that I’m reading responses from people that talk about it as though she’s the first to discover fire? It’s not that big a deal, people!
I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I actually hope that Shinobu is going to give her hell next week. I swear, here and now, that I’ll drop Chihayafuru on the spot if it turns out that Chihaya actually beats Shinobu in her state. I’ve seen enough of those ‘power-up’ scenes for one lifetime, so spare me, please.
The only thing good about this episode is that we finally got to see Arata play. So what if he was beating the living hell out of Yuusei? Who cares? Arata is godlike when it comes to Karuta. He needs to win for the story to make sense, that’s all there is to it. I’ll be looking forward to the match between him and Shinobu.Read More
Finally some excitement! Actually, I think the point in the story that we all have been waiting for is finally about to begin, which is why I’m very excited about next week’s episode. It’s that one point where Chihaya doesn’t get to stand as much in the spotlight anymore.
So yeah, that team tournament is over and Chihaya’s team won, hooray for her! I’m pretty sure most of us saw it coming, yet I see many pleased reactions on several locations. How boring. People are so fascinated by that one character that they fail to see the big picture. I’m not happy at all about the fact that Chihaya and her team won. I’m fine with them winning, but Chihaya’s injury is what I’m happy about. Things are about to get harder for her and her friends, whom have to deal with her and her injury in their own ways. It would’ve been too ridiculous for words if she ended up winning both the team tournament and the singles tournament.
No, my sight is set on the matches between Arata and Shinobu, and Arata and Daichi. Those two matches matter most to me at this point. I’m pretty sure that Daichi will lose against Arata, yet I still want to see that match pretty badly. My number one wish is to see the match between Arata and Shinobu, just so that I can see her lose to him for the second time.
No matter what people say and no matter what happens next, the first season is still the best. I simply cannot get over how those five have grown during the first season. Those two newbies are simply weird and annoying compared to them, but that’s just one guy’s opinion of course.Read More
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.
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.
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.Read More
