  • I almost missed this one...glad I didn't!
    I started watching the first episode purely by accident because I clicked the wrong link, but I couldn't help finishing the first episode. Then the next one. And so on and so forth. I didn't expect the anime to be so thrilling and good. The art work is pretty, the animation is amazing, and the karuta match scenes are fun to watch. There's also poetry, high school shenanigans, and a dash of romance ...

  • bakuman and hikaru no go alternative
    This anime has some great animation and also a pretty good story. Chihayafuru has some romance but it isn't the main plotline of the story. If you enjoyed bakuman and hikaru no go you'll definately enjoy this series. If you are looking for a series similar to chihayafuru I'd recommend Bakuman, Hikaru no go.

  • Amazing!More Please!
    A Friend suggested this to me and I put it off forever, I didn't think I could get into a card game I knew nothing about I just didn't think it was going to be that great. I was SO WRONG! Chihayafuru had me laughing and crying and wanting more the whole time. Loved the characters they put so much thought and work into developing each character that you could relate to each character in your own ...

  • Wow, I never thought I'd like an anime about playing a card game.
    But this show is fantastic. The character development is something that is just not there in other shows. The animation is simple but gets the job done. The music is actually very good orchestral music so that really melds in well with the at times sweet and dramatic story. Give this one a watch people!

  • VERY surprised I like it this much...
    I was very surprised I liked this anime so much. I was very close to giving up on it maybe ten episodes in because I still wasn't feeling the story, but good thing I decided to stick with it. IT'S REALLY GOOD. I know nothing about this card game at first and I still don't completely understand all the rules of the game after watching two seasons, but it's a great story nonetheless.
    Watch it. ...

  • Hoping for another season
    Just finished the last episode to night.
    I realy enjoyed this series. I hope more episodes come out.
    I would like to see Chinaya go to the camp then take on the Queen.
    I will just have to hunt around for the manga until then.

  • first review ever....
    beyond amazing ><..

    M always at the edge of my seat during every episode and this is the only series, especially once you get season 2, where I swear time goes by in seconds instead of minutes.

    Arata Faito!

  • Hikaru no Go in Shoujo form
    For me this is reminiscent of Hikaru no Go. It makes you excited about something that you couldn't imagine being exciting.

    The characters radiates warmth, their individual story lines catch us with unexpected empathy towards them. The story is about Karuta, but also about friendship, desire and dreams.

    While some of the story isn't exactly unique to the girls Anime, but I feel this doesn't ...

  • Stirring Emotion As Easily As Blossoms On the Breeze
    I can't say that the premise for this show moved me, but the way the characters - particularly the main ones - certainly did! Sublime interaction, wonderful life in motion moments, and beautiful animation style lead you on a delightful journey into part of Japanese culture at it's best. A must see!

  • Favorite Anime right now!!!
    I was going through a time I had stopped watching anime because I hadn't been able to find any anime that caught my attention. I decided to give chihayafuru a try and wow was a surprised!!!!!!!!!!! It is incredible. No episode has left me disappointed and EVERY episode leaves you wanting to see the next one. It has a great plot and if someone is doubting to watch this because karuta seems ...
