Chihaya and Taichi spend summer break at Fujisaki's karuta training camp, whose brutal training includes seven matches a day plus jogging and other exercises, using her left hand as some practice is better than none. Taichi works on his stretches at night, seeking to get better. The rest of the club go to training camps of their own. The last day has Chihaya play Rion three times, Rion having become determined to make sure her camp wins. Sakurazawa critiques Chihaya's form in the next match and tells her to take cards with grace, shocking the Fujisaki players as she's never given any of them personal advice mid-match before. Chihaya's last match is against Taichi, who defeats her. On the train ride home, Taichi promises to defeat her in an official match with her using her right hand, inspiring her fighting spirit.
