Chihaya catches up to Amakasu. The four Mizusawa players all have matches that are luck of the draw, but Hokuō manages to split their cards guaranteeing two wins, for three wins overall. Chihaya and Taichi go on the attack to increase their chances of winning by trying to push their opponents into a fault. Taichi succeeds in pushing Retro into a fault, giving Mizusawa an even chance. For the final card, Chihaya and Amakasu touch the card on Amakasu's side at the same time, so Hokuō still wins. Amakasu tells Sudō that he only moved because he felt Chihaya move. Tsukuba, his brothers, and Sumire join the Shiranami Society. Chihaya texts Arata that the final was both the most fun match and the most frustrating loss.
