  • One of my favorite animes of all time
    Exciting, engaging, and beautifully animated, with rich character relationships and an intimate portrayal of karuta gameplay and player thought process.

    The three protagonists (Chihaya, Taichi, and Arata) are wonderfully developed and mature and change at a very natural pace. Every character is celebrated for both their strengths and their faults, and it's very enjoyable to see them grow ...

    Good but slow. REALLY SLOW
    this show will get on your nerves the entire first season but in the second season you will be on the edge of your seat. it has a tempo that will toll on you and you will be forced to watch another anime along-side this one. i was disappointed that we didn't get to see .... vs the master, .... against the queen, or .... vs .... but not every anime gets its happy ending.

  • Card Games Have Never Been This Fun!
    Oh, card games... some of the best forms of entertainment and relaxation on this earth.

    To be honest, I have tried many, many, many different card game anime series since I love to play them myself. Nonetheless, this is the only one that has satisfied my critique. Am I a bit harsh? Who knows. At least, I don't think so in this case.

    Unlike all the other card game series, this one has ...

  • I loved both seasons of Chihayafuru!
    I love the storyline, the characters and the illustration! I love the funny lines and the emotional scenes. I did not realize how much I would love this anime until after I watched the first few episodes. Chihaya, Taichi, Arata, Oe, Desktumo, Porky and the 2 other side characters were wonderful. I read a few of the comments and I myself would love to watch season 3 just to find out who will end up ...

  • I heard about it and so...
    The title popped up in a chat conversation with a friend and that is where it all started.
    I had no idea what is it about and so I tried to watch the first episode. Honestly, it was different for someone who wanted something extraordinary in an anime, but I just can't stop watching it from then on. It is a competitive card game and also my first time seeing that type of card game. Karuta. It has ...

  • 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!
