Chihayafuru – 16: Yuri Prevails!

Chitose is like evil Chihaya.

Well it was a re-cap ep this week which kind of makes sense as we are at the half way point and need a few small reminders. Thankfully they laced it full of omake to keep things from getting too boring. For the most part the jokes were pretty good and there was oh so much shipping ammunition used up. For the Taichi shippers I suggest you take your lumps and write a crappy fanfic where Taichi wins, its official Chihaya is more into girls and karuta than Taichi. I know this is a an utter shock to losers like Michiru, but you know what… welcome to the 21st Century and in the 21st Century we do not tolerate discrimination based on sexual orientation so keep your backward prejudice to yourself. Still congratulations to Chihaya for coming out the closet and confessing her love for Kana-chan.

Kana-chan is a very popular girl I guess that night with Kana-chan was more special than any of us realized. Desk-kun and Nishida are on a collision course in an effort to woo Kana-chan (though I fear possibly in vain). If somehow Kana-chan and Chihaya are not meant to be and Chihaya ends up with Shinobu, then I wish all the best to Nishida who isn’t shrinking from his feelings, Desk-kun is doomed though, he has no shot. Desk-kun should just take his pair the spares ship with Nishida’s sister she was brought in for this purpose and I doubt Desk-kun has enough guile to outwit that stalker. Moreover I’d rather not have Nishida F-Type go yandere and harm Kana-chan. I am glad however that they had the heart to tell Taichi that it was IMPOSSIBLE for him to be with Chihaya, not only does he lack the skills in karuta but now we know Chihaya is one with the yuri. Moreover Chihaya would choose karuta over him every time.

For Taichi things aren’t all bad because now that we know a little more about Chihaya’s nee-sama, Chitose, I just figured out how Taichi can have his ship not sink. Given that Taichi is willing to settle for something less with his second place attitude he should be more than comfortable with settling for Chitose. Yes, Chitose is older than him and not as radiant as Chihaya, but since Taichi has little to offer other than looks and money, Chitose is a perfect fit because she is vain and greedy. They will get along famously and that way Taichi need not feel inferior and struggle anymore in karuta which he doesn’t really love. So Taichi time to come to terms with reality, you will never master karuta the way you are and Chihaya will never look upon you with loving eyes she reserves for Kana-chan. You belong with Chitose, you know it, I know it, and everyone else knows it. It won’t be so bad you never loved Chihaya as person anyway and appearance-wise Chitose is not that far off.

I am not sure what they are going to do next week but in the end this recap episode was funny enough where I did not lament it.

Hey Taichi you hear that you can buy Chitose's love... it's like you were made for each other.

Sorry Taichi but you were unable to hit Chihaya like a smooth criminal.

MOTHER FUCKER Taichi just got $1,500 USD for nothing in a middle of recession?! FUCK IT OCCUPY HIS HOUSE.

And you are bigger crook than Kurosawa Noriko and Richard Nixon...

Oh how times have changed you little weasel.

There is no shame in reading Shoujo Beat.

I can't believe I am saying this but Desk-kun has a better grasp of impressing a woman than Taichi.

So much for mastering karuta...


Should have gotten a Snowmaru one of Kana-chan. As for Desk-kun...FRIEND-ZONED.

That is some family resemblance they got going.

I approve of this ship! Face it Desk-kun you got no chance against Nishida in the Kana-chan sweepstakes. Just take you pair the spares ship and SAIL.

Desk-kun and Nishida agree you got no shot...

Clearly Chihaya is already someone else's waifu so you cannot claim Taichi.

Speaking of giving up, I have an idea of who Taichi should settle for. Kana-chan deserves more than a half-hearted vote. Good news it's an Ayase, Ayase Chitose...

I am kind of disappointed that she wasn't asking what the Capital of Assyria was...or the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow.


FUCK YEAH YURI. Ladies and Gentlemen Taichi shippers everywhere, Kana-chan is THE WINNER.


Hey don't hate, your disgusting insistence on "proper" sexual orientation has no place here. BEGONE you insolent tart and may you be FOREVER ALONE.


Ah yes the despicable and foolish denial of the Taichi shipper. SHAMEFUL DISPLAY!

I hope Taichi is taking notes, he got fucking nothing this whole episode.

Looks and money is about all he has...

That's low Taichi, and besides his dumbass better rush in or Chihaya will make her merry way to yuri bliss.

Well we are going to have to do something to help you get in better shape if you are going to grow old with Kana-chan.

I am glad Sudo got to participate, I only wish Shinobu could too.

    A perfect victory for Kana-chan? Makes sense. ALL HAIL OUR NEW LEADER.

    Also, Nishida’s sister just redefined moe.

      And she’s his onee-chan not imouto if I remember correctly :)

      Also, Tsukue sounded a lot like Mihashi in this epi, and I agree he makes a lot more of a charmer than Taichi.

        Watching the episode again it seems pretty clear that Nishida’s sister is younger than him.

          He’s called ‘onee-san’ at least two times, the first time when Nikuman explains where does he get his t-shirts from (‘ore no onee-chan’) and the second when Taichi asks him if he’d explained his ‘onee-san’ how karuta team order works.

            Need to get my ears checked anyway good for Nishida F Type that she is comfortable being a shouta-con. May she have many years stalking Desk-kun.

      Throw caution to the wind and go for it.

    Hm, all jokes aside, I would love to see Chihaya come out of the closet and be all happy with Shinobu, but I guess that sort of outcome doesn’t really fit in this show. Shame, too, because it would’ve been awesome.

      Nothing is impossible besides Chihaya seems oblivious to Taichi’s tippy toe advances.

        I honestly have no idea how they can possibly sell the idea of Chihaya and Taichi together. It’s already the halfway point, and as you say, Taichi hasn;t made any progress on that front whatsoever (not that I want him to). But maybe it’s no coincidence that they chose the same filler/recap episode to demonstatre both how greedy and shallow Chitose is and how Taichi is loaded and apparently wouldn’t even have a chance of scoring with Nishida’s sister. Them being together is the only logical conclusion.

          They have enough time to try and since the manga has not concluded Taichi has a shot outside of the anime. Still they could try and force it. Maybe we will get Taichi wavering between Chihaya and Chitose.

    LOL I’ve been reading your blog and I have to say your hating on Taichi makes my day. Funny because Taichi is probably my tied favourite character with Arata XD Got my fingers crossed for a threesome ending here!

      I can’t wait to see what Crusader’s going to make of you.

        Does this mean they’ll (you know, thinking about it, I have no idea what Crusader’s gender is) stop bullying me all the time? Because this guy is even worse.

          I am surprised that my gender is mystery, still I assure you I am guy.

      I got your threesome right here TaichixDesk-kunxRetro-kun and I agree BEST END for all parties hands down. Otherwise they are looking at FOREVER ALONE. Then again Taichi might grow half a brain and go after Chitose.

      Still I am glad I made your day.

        I was kind of thinking ChihayaxArataxChitose. I don’t know why, but this idea appeals to me.

        TaichixDesk-kunxRetro-kun is good, although I feel sorry for Desk-kun in the middle.

        LOL seriously speaking, I don’t mind when people dislike characters I like. Come to think of it, Taichi deserves a lot more crap than what he’s getting. In his defence, he is a complex character. I like the main trio equally and thought their bond with each other was very special. I would hate to see Chihaya pair off with either of the guys, although if she had to pick one, I’d vote Arata over Taichi. This episode was good because I love me some yuri. ChihayaxKanade or ChihayaxShinobu, I don’t care which, I hope she jumps one of them.

          I see you are a fan of the WINCEST though I am suspicious of Chitose and doubt that she is capable of not poisoning any relationship she finds herself in.

          As Desk-kun wouldn’t feel too sorry for him the alternative is FOREVER ALONE and besides misery loves company and those three are as miserable as the come.

    I’m pretty sure the male that Ayase would date is….
    her sensei XD

    Come on she even admitted it (in 6th grade)

      A distinct possibility but alas the Good Doctor is married and Chihaya has decided to move on and romance Kana-chan.

    Awwe, you didn’t include that scene of Taichi being a lawbreaker? Marriage life is so-so especially when the trap keeps slamming Arata. He thinks Taichi is the awesomest character in this series… -_- He doesn’t see Taichi for the spoiled coward obouchama that he is

      I’ll try talking Johnny into making a gif where Taichi gets cards to the face.

      Still you need to remind Impz of how you are always right… Especially on this matter lack of anime has clearly addled his mind.

    Daww, always nice seeing chibi chihaya and friends! Odd/ slightly disappointing to see an epi made up almost entirely of filler, but, as you say, the omake was cute and funny for the most part, so I enjoyed it too. (And yes, I only just saw it, lol/ orz.)
