  • An amazing show, unlike any other
    When i first started watching Chihayafuru, i didn't have high expectations, i figured i'd end up dropping after a few episodes.
    i was dead. wrong.
    something about this show just drives you crazy, makes you want to watch more. I had no idea what Karuta was, but now i really wish i played.
    This show has mastered mixing drama with comedy, while being a serious show about a serious sport/game, ...

  • Good plot, good art.
    My first impression of the anime, just by looking at the art, was that it'd be one of those typical shoujo anime (not that I don't like those). I was totally wrong. I had ran out of anime to watch and decided to try this as a last resort. I'm SO glad I did. There are some anime that can get me so excited, I kind of, in my mind, jump around and shout in excitement from the greatness of the story ...

  • Another card game made into an anime
    However, this one is different. This is about a game which pre-exists the anime and involves Japanese high culture going back centuries. This is an anime about a high school team which plays competitive team karuta. Plotting, pacing and characterizations are far beyond what other game-based shows provide. Maybe some of this is that it's aimed for a slightly older market, but either way - this is a ...

  • My Favorite Anime, Amazing!
    I never write reviews for anime, but this is the only anime I am watching episode by episode, its such an amazing work. So greatly put together, I really love Chihayafuru. The plot may be about Karuta, a sport many arent familiar with, but it is so exciting! Recommended to anyone.

    Characters you will care about!
    I pushed off watching this anime for a long time, I did not think that a show about Karuta could be interesting but I found it to be very much so! I ended up emotionally invested in the characters and really wanting to know what was going to happen next. The romance is not as strong as I prefer but it is there and there's no doubt about the strength of their feelings even though it is not as ...

  • If you haven't watched this anime, you MUST watch it.
    At first, I didn't really expect much from this anime. I only started watching it because my sisters recommended it to me. However, as I watched it, I've became so engrossed in it. The story-line is good and the characters are awesome. I, myself have to recommend this anime. It's definitely a must watch. *-*

    Great Characters; Well animated
    This anime will not be for everyone My husband HATED the sound of poem readers, for instance. I, however, really liked this series. It's well animated, the characters are interesting and funny, the story is engaging, the premise is weird but entrancing, the voice acting is very well done, and the music fits the series perfectly. I definitely recommend it!

  • A very unexpected find
    At first I have to say I wasn't expecting much, and quite frankly all I wanted was just another decently done love story. What I got however was just so much better in ways I can only hope to describe! Constantly I find myself caught up with Chihayafuru's amazing emotional roller coaster. It's not just a good story, it is a story with layers.

    This story surprisingly isn't just stuck on one ...
