The hazed early dawn light comes not from the moon is the 52nd episode of Chihayafuru.
At her school, Chihaya isn't sure how to fill out a future plans questionnaire. Then her classmate, Michiru Horikawa, informs Chihaya that she scoped out interesting places to visit in Kyoto over the break, as their class will have a field trip there.
At the Karuta club meeting, the members are all excited to become better players, until they learn that they will miss the Master and Queen qualifiers due to the mandatory class trip. Depressed at this, and with the bandages on her right hand removed, Chihaya and the club head to a warm-up tournament for the qualifiers.
Chihaya greets Arata, and promises that she won't lose a single match. Tsutomu Komano and Yusei Nishida lose their matches but, in the process, tire out Akito Sudo, making it easier for their teammates to defeat him.
