    Can't wait for the second season to start in TWO days!!!
    This is the best shojo anime I ever watched, it's really a sports anime in my opinion. This anime makes me want to play the game Karuta so bad and feel so sad that I don't know enough Japanese to play it.

    Anyway, enjoy!!!

    Anime with card game and friendship...
    Yu-Gi-Oh, anyone?

    Joking aside, I was rather surprised that how the author managed to make a card game into something with depth by explaining the game's advanced tactics, as well as its attachments to Japanese literature, without having to leave the audience the feeling of being left out. Though using high school as the setting has been over-done especially in recent anime, I was quite ...

    Solid with good characters
    After watching this show, I can truly say the you get attached to these characters. It's well written and has emotion to it. The determination shown by the characters for this one sport makes it feel like the effort put into something really matters. The feeling of striving to succeed and the hurt in losing, this is something everyone can relate too... I had never hear of Karuta before however if ...

    Slice of Life worth experiencing!!!!
    I just finished watching the animer series and I would have to say that it was truely a pleasure this series. I wish I have had such a passion for something in my early youth. I always love watching anime series like these that gives a person some insight that there is always something beautiful in the world to do besides trying to figure your everyday struggles. I would recommend it to ...

    Friendship, slice of life and Karuta in one package
    I watched this only because I read the manga series first. I was a bit scared because I don't really like game manga in the first place but, this actually was GOOD. I liked the manga series but it didn't have the animation that I yearned to see. Karuta is a card game which involves your hand moving to hit a card. Obviously, manga will not demonstrate this action. So I downloaded the first couple ...

    Chihayafuru: A Fun, Engaging and Unique Story in a Genre that has Grown Rife with Cliches.
    Chihayafuru is a stellar and emotionally engaging anime based on the popular Japanese game Karuta. The characters are warm, unique and memorable which is only aided by the wonderful voice work and animation. The voice work of Chihaya and Taichi in particular shine for the cast and the beautiful animation, especially the cg scenes, add to the fluidity of the competitions in the show, while the ...

    A charming series that made me smile

    Chihayafuru is a short series telling the story of Chihaya and her friends.
    On the surface one would assume it's a Sports themed anime, but it's not so much about the Karuta, it's more about the connections between the characters and their devotion to what they do.
    It's wonderfully realized artistically and has excellent ...

  • My anime sense, like Karuta game sense, tells me there will be a season 3...
    LOL. This was an intense and fun anime which taught me a little something about a sport I never knew existed. It was inspiring watching this group of friends support each other, strengthen their bond with one another, and push themselves and each other to be the best they can be. I even went as far as to watch a Karuta match on YouTube out of curiosity. The intensity and movements of the ...
