Following the thrilling Tokyo karuta tournament, Chihaya’s team challenges the national championship. However, Chihaya is soon devastated when she learns that long-lost childhood best friend Arata has quit karuta, crushing her dream of reuniting at the national tournament.

Chihaya channels her energy into training with her friends, but competition at national level is steep, and the opponents even stronger. When she learns about fellow high schooler Shinobu Wakamiya, the Queen of karuta, her determination turns into desperation and alienates her friends. Taichi tries to bring their dejected friend back to her senses but Chihaya is completely thrown off balance. Will she regain confidence in time to lead the team at nationals?

The exciting and heartfelt conclusion to one of the Japanese most popular films of the year!
