Snow is just harder water. Souya is probably Rei without the warmth of the Kawamoto family, his water just kept getting colder and thicker silent

ep 19:
I wonder if this is leading towards Rei realising that he can't be responsible for every failure of everyone else. He's had a similar reaction before when he defeated that other guy and he shouted out that it's not his fault. He has to keep on fighting.

In this case, I suspect that Shimada will lose and this will lead to some development with Rei coming to an understanding. It's really not Rei's fault if Shimada loses.

e19:

-Shogi seems to be the go-to way to please/bond with paternal figures in this world.
-The way young Shimada is drawn is nice, yep, looks old as heck as a kid
-Rei just changing the subject instead of correcting him about which dad, considerately played
-God those middle-of-the-night realizations that you've made a huge mistake are the worst Sad
-It's really nice to see Rei get a chance to take care of someone else and do such a good job of it.
-This freaking chairman Laughing
-Yeah, Souya stepping in on the press conference totally seems like an old-man-Rei move, this is going to turn out to be some time travel setup where he actually is the Ghost of Rei's Future

Kyoto is so beautiful that wanting to live there carries no neckbeard penalty (also it's super weird/amazing to recognize that train station and the river now Shiny/thrilled)

E20/Ch 41-42:

-There's something very melancholy about narrating the dream looking back from an awake perspective while we're watching it in the moment
-Shimada's happy dream-life of the people back home telling him it's okay if he didn't make it as a professional. Can't decide if it needs a happy smiley or a sad one.
-That meal looks really good, I could go for those pickles
-Nikaidou's overprotectiveness Laughing
-Smith's shoujo sparkles and angst Laughing
-Poor Rei sweatdropping all over the stage
-Dragon guy's serpent of criticism spiralling all over a background of gloom while Rei freaks out rofl
-Shimada struggling through a pool of black water pain, looking like he's going to die, but with that badass grin on his face and "it makes you feel alive" Shiny/thrilled
-and then the snow falling silently as Souya takes over
-Rei standing up for Shimada's potential against the Dragon
-And then figuring out how Shimada can win only to find he's conceded Sad

Maybe. There's 120ish chapters currently and we're only in the 40s, so they have more than enough material to at least announce plans for a future season.

Finally caught up, is October yet? Run in circles flail

e20:

-Shimada's dream, the same but somehow the opposite of Griffith's dream Sad
-NIKKAIDOU RAGE Laughing
-This dragon is some kind of jerk, huh?
-That overwhelming snowwww
-Rei unwisely sticking up for Shimada and getting SHUT DOWN. Good for Rei. Smile
-SURPRISE TURNAROUND YES
-No? He conceded despite knowing there could be a surprise turnaround? Didn’t figure it out in time, even though Rei saw it? What’s going on here, I’m too dumb for chess Sad
-“What’s on the other side of the storm is just an even more furious storm.” Rei are you just talking directly to me about academia

e21:
-Any episode that starts off with Momo and cherry blossoms is going to be substantially cheerier than the last, right?
-Oh okay nevermind about the cheery turn, I see this is a Homecoming Pain ’n Shame Episode
-Nikkaidou’s amazing outfit Shiny/thrilled
-Hahaha the chairman is too chicken to play the old folks. What a classic admin.
-“Love me Tendou” ._.
-Oh god the layers of thematic imagery for this show in the rural elderly being isolated by the snow because the young have deserted Home and Tradition and Family, but the old homefolks are still there waiting unchanged to encourage the few youth who made the effort to bring them warmth despite their running off in fruitless pursuit of success Crying
-Gum mochi Laughing
-Okay actually those daruma mochi look delicious and I would buy them Uh-oh
-Daww Hina’s dream

e22:

-Oh no Rei lost his loud teacher friend
-11 YEARS OF LUNCH ALONE Sad
-“Our legend is only beginning.” Laughing
-YAY NO LUNCH ALONE, LOUD SENSEI IS BACK
-Oh loud sensei, you creep, you’re not going to get an invite to the student Christmas party.
-Jeez, shades of Erased with the water filling up the school stairwell.
-Bahaha he was just after free shogi coaching
-God natto is so gross. And this is from someone who loves boiled okra.
-Hooray, friendship with moustache freshman science club Heart
-“It’s fine if you don’t want to sit next to me. But could you be a little quieter about it and not make a scene?” Aaand my heart breaks into a million pieces
-EATING ALONE IN THE BUSHES OH NOOOO
-WILL THE SEAT NEXT TO ME ALWAYS BE EMPTY Crying
-SHOGI MAKES PEOPLE SIT ACROSS FROM  YOU Crying Crying
-Yeah fuck this got real heartwarming real quick Happy tears
-I wonder what that last Souya appearance was foreshadowing?
