oh my gosh i approve of Chihaya so hard.

They approach her about how they’re taking notes on this kid’s dialect, she tells them “hey I bet that’s why he doesn’t talk anymore maybe you should stop doing that”. Her friend gets jealous of her talking to this kid and pushes him in the rain and mocks his poverty, she punches her friend in the gut and tells him to knock it the fuck off. Her friend and the whole class ignores her for it, she tells them she doesn’t give a fuck. Her friend’s bullying escalates as he gets more jealous and he tries to sabotage the kid so he can’t win, she pushes the kid out of the way, takes his place and is like

“I’m going to win this for him

no wait i am NOT gonna win this for him

I’m going to beat Taichi for me because i am sick of his shit”

excellent girl.

also check out that tie and shorts combo oh yeah

I think the thing I love about anime is it can make ANYTHING DRAMATIC.

A card game centered on Japanese poetry? SURE THIS IS GONNA BE THE MOST BADASS SHIT YOU’VE EVER SEE U WATCH THIS GIRL KICK ASS LISTEN TO THE DRAMATIC MUSIC YOU GET THREE SEPERATE CUTS OF HER KNOCKING THAT CARD AWAY DID YOU SEE THE WAY SHE WENT FOR THAT CARD YOUR MIND IS FUCKING BLOWN.

Like now even if I knew Japanese i couldn’t play this game because it couldn’t possibly live up to the expectations.

Sumire is so sick of this guy using karuta as an excuse to pull shit with her she looks over at Chihaya and is like “I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO TOTALLY DECIMATE DUDES LIKE SHE DOES SO THEY WON’T EVEN BE ABLE TO COME CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH MY HAND TAKE THAT ASSHOLES”

yes good

(also Chihaya took all of this guy’s cards he was unable to get a single card before her what a badass)

OH MY GOD TAICHI 

okay so i know a lot of ship wars probably go on with this show like Taichi x Chihaya or Taichi x Chihaya oh noes the drama.

Yeah whatever Taichi is also in ridic love with Arata so IT IS PRETTY CLEAR THIS IS AN OT3 SITUATION TO ME. ACTUALLY OT4. Taichi x Arata x Chihaya x Karuta.

(Also Chihaya x Kana x Shinobu but let’s set that aside for the first time ever Chihaya x Everyone is just the obvious ship.)

I MEAN THEY ARE ALL DESPERATELY IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER TAICHI IS SO FUCKIN TSUNDERE FOR BOTH OF THEM

crying dramatically over seeing Arata again for fucks sake

okay

okay you guys there doesn’t have to be a choice here u can all just make out with each other jesus.

-Someone mentions Taichi’s Mom

-Chihaya just automatically like “OH YEAH FUCK TAICHI’S MOM SHE’S SUCH A JERK SHE PUTS SO MUCH PRESSURE ON HIM NOPE NOT OKAY”

-tAICHI IS ACTUALLY IN THE ROOM

-it was just like literally a reflex for her to say that it was automatic “mention this person who gives my friend a hard time, I WILL TELL U WHAT I THINK, IDC IF IT’S HIS MOM”

I love that Chihaya never moved on from her younger self- she’s still super protective of her friends, she’s still super honest and open with her feelings and says literally the first thing that comes to her mind at all times. So many girls get that beaten out of them when they get older but NOT CHIHAYA. SHE SAYS WHAT SHE THINKS AND FUCK EVERYONE ELSE AND YOU DON’T FUCK WITH HER FRIENDS OR KARUTA.
