If you want to be spoiled, this is answered in some of the spoilers above, the ones conjecturing about what will be covered this season. If you don't want to be spoiled then just belt yourself in and enjoy the ride!

My belt is triple fastened just so u know, LOL!

You might want a 5-point harness for the last 7 episodes of this show!

To be honest, I think the dragging out is more annoying because we have to wait a week before we see what happens. If we had it already available, I think it'd be awesome =D.

So annoying, yes, but with caveats ;-).

I've waited long enough on this so I think I'll survive waiting out the last number of episodes to see what happens and avoid opening spoilers.

Good episodes and all, but the pace is soooooo slow! (And some of the side characters are a bit over the top.)

We'll be getting at least one more episode of Chihayafuru after season 2, an OVA is coming with volume 22 of the manga on September 13th. Volume 21 comes out on June 13th, a new episode "of the bittersweet school drama that can only be seen here!"

Unless I missed something, this thread seems to be safe to read (as long as you've watched the latest ep). Any info that was a spoiler was tagged as a spoiler. Thanks hpulley-san! - I'd have to strangle him if he didn't! xP j/k

Hmm, I wonder what that "bittersweet school drama could be about?!? I hope it's not some kind of ep where they have to prepare for a festival or go to the beach or something, lol (like a fan service ep). Maybe Sumire will ask Taichi out on a date? Who knows.

I was thinking this also. Imo, it's not as good as season 1 anymore with its slow pacing. However, it can still pull itself back together. *hint: Shinobu

The slow pacing is attributed to the fact that it's being animated per chapter whereas the first season was every two chapters. I looked at the raws of Chihayafuru last week just to see what chapter they're in. They're apparently in 79 for episode 18. That's just 32 chapters away from where the manga is now. If they don't slow down the pacing of the animation, it'll probably take us 2-3 years before we can get a season 3.

Personally, I have no qualms about slowing down the pacing of the karuta competition. Most sports animes make one match last 3-5 episodes so I guess that's what they're doing with Chihayafuru now. I know it's frustrating to wait for a week to get the next part since the story is left hanging.

I think the slower pacing is becoming a problem because we got so used to last season's superb pacing. We tend to use the prior season as a benchmark for the next. I think it's a matter of adjusting. To be honest, it's only with the recent episodes have I gotten used to it. I was really frustrated with season 2 because of terrible pacing but given the constraints, I think Madhouse is doing quite well.

Hmm original story? Think they will be dealing with the middle school stories light novel? I only read someone's translation of it and figured that might be a good thing to animate.

We probably won't know until if/when they post more details or a PV. I have preordered it blind as I need volume 22 anyways and might as well get the DVD since I've bought everything else for this show, fanbook, soundtracks for both seasons...

Cool. We still have a few months until it comes out though I would suspect "something" will come out as to the actual nature of the story in a month or so. Still though should be interesting and worth noting given that it it still popular enough to warrant additional stories to be animated. That's good news!
