    Recommend for anyone human.
    Chihayafuru is an amazing series. From the music to the art, and then to the storyline. I never thought that an anime would make me want to play a cardgame based on Japanese poetry so much, but there you go. I definitely recommend Chihayafuru for anyone human. I cannot think of a single person who wouldn't enjoy it ^_^

    Now The Flower Blooms
    TL;DR: Emotional, sportsy, fun. Kind of slow pace. Worth the watch/stick with it.

    I did not start Chihayafuru until the very end of the first season. Initially I thought it seemed kind of lame according to the summary. I don't watch "sports" animes and this seemed like that. When I started hearing from a lot of people that it was one of the best shows of that season I changed my mind and gave ...

    Addicting Story! Love it
    So I was a dork and watched SEASON 2 first because I totally didn't notice the drop down section for season 1. With that said, it didn't matter. The story is amazing! I zoomed through S1 in 2 days.

    I love this anime so much~!
    I love this anime so much! It's my perfect type of anime. All the characters are awesome and this anime just keeps me at the edge of my chair. Let me tell you, seven days have never felt so long. It even has some sort of love triangle between Chihaya, Taichi, and Arata.

    Amazing and Addicting
    I tend to lean towards romantic high school anime without all the sport action like Toradora. But this is amazing! It has the right blend of action, romance, laughs, and suspense. You'll watch a 20 min. episode and wish it was longer! The characters all develop really well, and you find yourself rooting for your favorite member when watching. It is addicting.

    Repetitiveness is over 9000!!!
    Chihaya had a fun personality that drew me into the show. I was expecting more of a slice and life(emotional show) from what the first few episodes looked like but than later on it seemed like the Author was just trying to convince people to play karuta more than anything. Pretty intense watching them flips card for the 1st season but it gets kinda old when your trying to drag it on for 3+ ...

    I really Love this show
    I love the show Chihayafuru, its interesting and I like the story line and all of the characters. I really really love Taichi Mashima the most, he's soooo hot. I LOVE HIM. the only thing I don't like is that one episode every season where its not the story just a recap and weird stuff. But other than that, awesome anime...

  • 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 ...

  • Up there with Kimi Ni Todoke
    This anime sat in my Q for the longest time. It didn't catch fire for me until the third episode of the first season and then I was hooked. The characters are all very appealing, especially Chihaya, whose passion and desire to play Karuta and be with her friends is truly inspiring. Still, there's something sad about her that I can't quite put my finger on yet. She needs an outlet for her love, ...
