Especially Taichi kinda realizing that he could never beat Arata...and thus could never be with Chihaya. And then he lost. I can't wait to see how these characters deal with the all around defeat, seems like things have really changed for all of them.
For some reason I always assumed that when Chihaya was taking cards...she was taking the right one...since it's not like the show explicitly says she goes for the wrong ones. So I was really confused at first when Harada said not to concentrate on speed alone.
But good episode was good. I'll be really sad when this finishes. ;__; The scanlated manga is even further behind than the anime. Dx
Im sort of predicting a change of abilities, I think Taichi will become super pro and possibly win alot of stuff while Arata suddendly makes a comeback either being rather bad or extremely pro (queen style)
