Chihayafuru, Volume 28
Chihaya has distanced herself from the karuta club after Taichi's departure, but one day she receives an e-mail from Arata. It tells of his determination, as he's created a karuta team so that he can one day stand toe-to-toe with both Chihaya and Taichi. Spurred into action by this, Chihaya heads to the Tokyo preliminary for the national tournament. However, the Mizusawa Karuta Club is thrown into chaos by rule changes and its uninhibited new members. What kind of trap has been set for Chihaya because of her time away from karuta? It's Chihaya's final summer to fight alongside her friends, and at the preliminaries she vows to make her dreams come true!
