A truly splendid episode ! Really really love it !
As I predicted last week, Mizusawa lost, but they lost with dignity. The remaining 4 players fought really hard after Nishida’s lost. Chihaya seems to find a new playing style. It will be interesting to see how her new ability plays up in the nationals.
Harada-sensei gets not one, but five new members to his karuta society. I guess Sumire will take karuta more seriously now?
