(kind of wondering if Chihaya will get her wish and turn her school into a powerhouse after winning nationals).

I can kind of see that happening, but probably only when she becomes Queen of Karuta. Because if that happens, no doubt that would attract a lot of attention (good publicity) for the school and people would then want to go to the same school as her to play Karuta, etc.

I'd love to see this series go through high school, through college, and have Chihaya return to the school as a teacher and also the karuta club coach. That would blow my mind. Instead of "they kissed and lived happily ever after" it'd be "they kissed; they went out; they went to college; they graduated college; they got jobs and fulfilled their dreams."

It'd be like Chihayafuru times Genshiken times Servant x Service slashed with Great Teacher Onizuka.

I'd very much like to see something like that.

And I'd like a unicorn and a billion dollars, while I'm being wishful.

there is an ova not sure where that takes place but pretty far imo

Well, I'd wager that OVA will just be the 2 days training camp @ Fujisaki, but who knows for sure I guess.

That'd make a lot of sense; it wouldn't fit in terribly well as the first thing in a new season.

Looks like others probably right. For a fault, it's a single card penalty only, it seems. Exceptions are the double fault conditions.

This hasn't really been talked about much (from what I can tell), but does anyone think Sumire has a chance with Taichi? Anyone think she will try to confess at some point during the possible 3rd season?

At some point, before this series ends, I think she might, but it's hard to guess at about what point, though. Like what Taichi is doing with Chihaya, I think Sumire wants him to notice how much effort and passion she's putting into learning/bettering herself at Karuta, and hoping that this passion will be felt by Taichi at some point, and soon after, begin to fall for her. But I suspect, it'll all be for naught.

I don't want to say I only see Sumire as a device, since I think she's a great character (especially by the end of this season), but I can't see her as a threat/rival to Taichi's infatuation with Chihaya. And I'm not entirely sure if that isn't intentional: Sumire's story is extremely claustrophobic when you look closely at it. She has an incredible level of sincerity, which we glimpsed in her talk with Kanade about love poems, but there is so much in her life that's superficial.

Romantically I expect to see her in a lot of pain next season, but as a character she should develop immensely.

I can't say much without spoiling but we see a lot of Sumire later on and it's a good thing.

I'm actually quite glad to hear that! xD

Also, you might have talked about this already, and I may have just missed it, but has the anime been faithfully following the manga? Has there been any major, or even small deviations from it?

As you can tell by my name, I love contests! So even though I don't know much about karuta, I love seeing the matches and tournaments and seeing who wins. I wonder if there will be any winners in love though?

BTW, I totally sympathize with Kanade. The person who drew my avatar gave me only 3 eyelashes!

The last episode of season two was a little bit different, pulled a bit of stuff forward. Otherwise it is extremely faithful to the manga, just the last episode but in a good way, sets the stage for OVA and season 3.

Yay another to the party!

I might be the only one hoping to see the middle school thing being turned into the OVA instead of the Karata camp. I am hoping stuff that is in the manga stays in the anime rather than be delegated into OVA territory that has such a limited audience. Besides.. putting the camp in the OVA will further push back the anime Season 3.. and besides.. I want more of the middle school thing. I found the scantilations of that very interesting.

Lol; I started reading the manga and the biggest spoiler I could imagine was in the first 3 pages.
