The Chapter starts with an argument between Yusei and Tsutomu. Yusei wonders if Tsutomu-kun just wants to sit on the bench and not play karuta anymore as he has been sitting out every round so far, "just" analyzing the other teams. As the next match against Shoyo High School starts without Tsutomu-kun, everybody notices how valuable Tsutomu's research has been, leading to a win of Team Mizusawa. The Team grows a stronger bond and Tsutomu-kun promises to play in the next match again.
