I spent my whole life waiting for this moment.
In the summer of her second year of high school, Chihaya and her friends, along with her younger club members in the Serizawa High School Karuta Club, went to Nationals. In the team division, they beat the invincible Fujisaki High School and won their first victory. In the individual divisos, Taichi wins the B division and Arata wins the A division.
Chifuyu’s surgery on her right finger that she injured in the team division went well and she participated in a summer camp at Fujisaki High School with Taichi. Determined to not get discouraged by their advisor Ms. Sakurazawa’s guidance, just when she was focused on working hard and practicing for her master-queen game, she finds out that her participation is at risk.
On the other hand, after figuring out that having a team opens up possibilities for karuta, Arata started to move towards creating his own karuta club.
With the appearance of new rivals, the coming future, and her dream of becoming a queen…
the third season opens with the overflowing passion and dedication of these high school students!
