Chihayafuru, Volume 9
Karuta players dream of the Master and Queen Matches, a stage that only the chosen can take. While Shinobu Wakamiya lacks an edge during the beginning of her best-of-three Queen Match title defense, she uses her overwhelming strength to win two and succeed in her first defense. Next is the third game of the best-of-five Master Match. Glued to the TV, Chihaya and friends are left breathless by the sight of Master Hisashi Suou.
