Chihayafuru, Volume 32

It's now the third-place playoff at Chihaya's final national high school tournament. Everyone is as quiet as can be, their hands clasped in prayer and anticipation as Chihaya quietly focuses on her fated match against Arata. Meanwhile, the battle to crown this year's champion is played between Hokuou Academy, led by Leero, and Fujisaki High, who aims to retake their lost crown. It is a place to believe in yourself and believe in your friends in order to make your dreams come true, and it's here that Taichi, who left his team once in the past, appears. Wipe away your tears, whether they're those of victory or regret, and keep moving forward. Those who fight blaze their own trail!
