Description:
Chihaya Ayase is a girl who has spent most of her life simply supporting her sister in her model career. That changes when she meets a boy named Arata Wataya, a talented karuta player. After becoming friends, he believes that Chihaya has the potential to become a great player. As Chihaya takes on a new dream of becoming Japan's best karuta player, she is soon separated from her karuta playing friends as they grow up. Now in high school, Chihaya is reunited with her childhood friend, Taichi Mashima. Together, they form the Mizusawa Karuta Club. With her teammates and friends supporting her, Chihaya strives to become the best karuta player in the world and to one day be with Arata again.

    I really feel for the author, no matter how the triangle ends there's going to be a lot of backlash...

    I will never fully understand Karuta, but reading chapters about the intense matches gets my heart pumping!
    Kudos to the author for being able to conjure that type of feeling from the reader.

    So far still perfect. Very satisfying and energizing read

    Plugging up part of the chapter gap with some missing chapters from Madokami.

    Chapters 94 through 98 don't have credits pages and don't have a group identified in the file or zip names, so I can't say who they're from. They include magazine covers, so I'm confident they're not official rips. Since TDX scanlated the chapters both before and after these, it's probably them?

    I'm terrified. Not many sports manga make me feel this way.
    Karuta is a boring card play, though still beautiful in a sense. It's just-- the match is not predictable.
    I'm kinda thankful that romance is not the main dish so just seeing their hardship is truly extraordinary.
    I will be sad when this time comes to an end. I want to make predictions but there is no strong persuasion, lol.

    I see that there will be sacrifices that become other substitutes.
    But if the author follows the pattern of two friends finally achieve their dreams, the second theory will apply. Since, I don't see the point in Taichi coming back after
    Anyway, it wont end soon for next months. It will take time to reach a satisfying climax.

    @migh There is romance development and it's not static. The writer has no issue upsetting the status quo and developing relationships, BUT, it's a slow boil that takes time. We're nearing the end of the manga and plotlines from the very beginning are now finally reaching their ultimate payoffs and it's satisfying as hell.
