This picture is from Chihayafuru, Vol.3, Waka 14, which I'm currently translating (alas, from an English translation).

I'm totally impressed.

The SFX on top is ザワ and means "murmuring crowd".

The one below is ザワッ

Just a symbol more

And the meaning moves from "murmuring crowd" to "Lighting up when seeing someone".

What a magnificent elegance!

The Karuta opponents (either when individuals or teams) are referred to as the Genji and the Heike! I took the liberty to adapt this picture (original here: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil) accordingly, so as to highlight this ^_^

I've been writing a number of posts about Karuta for the Demone Celeste Forum (demoneceleste.forumfree.it/), and the second of them shall feature this picture!

I read a lot of Edgar Allan Poe's Tales, including “A Descent into the Maelström”, a short story in which “a man recounts how he survived a shipwreck and a whirlpool” (Wikipedia). As often was the case with Poe's work, the tale impressed me very much.

When I wrote this little Grundgestalt, the music told me of Poe's tale — it was only natural to give it the same title
