“I’m not letting go of my dreams! I’m gonna be the Queen!”


They put everything on the line to taste the glory. Chihaya and her Mizusawa High School karuta club teammates competed at the Nationals in the summer of their second year, together with the new members.


In the team competition, they beat the seemingly invincible Fujisaki High School to make Mizusawa High School the champion for the first time. In the individual competition, Taichi won Class B while Arata won Class A.


Chihaya, having successfully undergone surgery on the finger she injured in the team competition, joins the Fujisaki High School summer camp with Taichi.


They set their sights on training to challenge the reigning Master and Queen, and put up with the brutal training from their advisor Sakurazawa, but the discovery of one fact might dash their hopes of playing.


Meanwhile, Arata, having learned that being part of a team will open up new opportunities, sets off to establish one.


A new rival, an unpredictable future, and the dream of becoming the Queen. “Chihayafuru 3” overflows with the passion and devotion of the karuta club high school students!
