Chihaya and Taichi start setting up their club room with tatami mats, so that their practice can start. Within the practice they notice a shy girl peaking in the window, turning out to be Kanade Oe who has been previously in the Kendo Club. After the persistence of Chihaya, Kana-chan, as Chihaya calls her, explains her the deeper meaning of the karuta poems and agrees to join under one condition. The condition being that they have wear their kimono in matches. With their first member of the club found, the teams sets their sight on the next person Meatball-kun.
In order of appearance:
- Unlike the Anime, Kanade Oe explains Chihaya Ayase the deeper meaning of the karuta cards, in the Manga, in the classroom rather than in the kimono shop.
- The Mizusawa Karuta Club is founded and got their first member besides Chihaya Ayase and Taichi
