  • Definitely one of my favourites, really captures you
    This anime really intrigued me so very much! It was one of first watched, but I am constantly failing in finding something to top it.

    1. I love the MC's personality. Chihaya is such a lively, passionate, kind and dedicated person. Her character really inspires me throughout the show, making me laugh and cry, because I can literally relate to her passion through the show, that's how strong her ...

  • I am now obsessed with the 100 poems
    I love this show, and I love the characters. I have to admit, the first episode didn't grab me on its own, but after I learned what the 100 poems were from another anime (Uta Koi), and learned what karuta was from yet another (Nanbaka of all things), I remembered the Chihahafuru episode I'd seen and got curious. I wanted to come back and see if the show would be more interesting now.

    The ...

    Chihayafuru is a masterpiece
    This anime is one of the best animes I have ever watched.I have nothing, but praise. Chihayafuru is an anime everyone should watch.

    This is the only anime I have reviewed on CR, so that says something about the quality of this one. The animation is beautiful and the pacing is solid. It is emotional. Everything is perfect.

    This deserves to the called a masterpiecec. Too bad the manga ...

    An Utter Masterpiece!
    This is, in my humble opinion, a true masterpiece. I am a lover of romantic anime; and, while romance wasn't necessarily a central theme it was definitely there. This was something entirely different, and fresh. I'm so pleased that so many other people share my sentiment. The protagonist was so vibrant, and vivacious it was hard not to have liked her character. I also found myself liking all of ...

  • Never thought a show like this would capture my attention
    I started watching this show because I hit the random button and this is what ir brought me too. I am very happy it did. The character development in this is phenomenal, and the karuta matches are so intense. This is an anime I recommend to anyone wanting to start watching a new one. It definitely did it's job in promoting the manga as all I want to do is read what happens next.

  • Starts out strong, but ends in "meh"
    If I hadn't started the second season, I might have given this anime 5 stars. I really enjoyed learning about the card game and seeing the ridiculous antics of Chihaya. Unfortunately, while the other characters grow and develop at a steady rate, Chihaya never changes. Her personality gets annoying, and her obsession with the game is to the point of being blind to everyone around her. It never ...

  • Interesting and Unique
    I was skeptical at first glance of the description. I'm not one to be interested in sporting anime, but this one was special. I had no idea what karuta was until seeing this and it was actually quite interesting. The characters were all unique and interesting, five stars!

  • It's alright I guess
    If you're looking for an anime that is pretty intriguing, but not something you would be especially excited to wait for and watch, this is the one. The Karuta playing is very beautiful to watch, and the plot is alright, it's just nothing too exceptional.
    The art style is also fabulous, but seriously the plot is just...in my honest opinion missing something. It has it's funny, sad, happy, ...

  • Very Intense but interesting.
    At first I was like "huh what is the description is even about...?"
    But after went through the first episode, it shocked me how good this anime is already.
    Naturally anime main characters are always beautiful and overly sexy, but here, we find modest / realistic characters of various interesting personalities. How would I have though those new karuta recruits play such impactful roles later in ...

  • One of my favorites; Shoujo with depth; PRAYING FOR A SEASON 3+
    Honestly, don't know how to sum it up but I love that this anime/manga is shoujo with more depth; although the strong, amusing lead (Chihaya) may cry often, it's not due to weakness but emotion which is totally fine and natural. All the characters have great supporting roles along with their own strengths and weaknesses. Tbh none of the characters are annoying and no one really makes overly stupid ...
