Chihayafuru, Volume 18

The High School Karuta Tournament has come to an end and Chihaya has come back to school with the rest of the team, each of whom have made steps forward after earning solid results. Chihaya also practices hard for the preliminaries so that she can play against Shinobu in the Queen Match, but she's shocked to learn that her school trip is scheduled for the same time as this initial tournament. Meanwhile, her injured right hand makes a full recovery at last. The time is right to enter the Yoshino Club Tournament, and waiting for her in Class A are Taichi, Arata from Fukui, and plenty of rivals. It looks like an all-out brawl is about to break out!
