  • Great anime! Will pump you up!
    LOVE this anime! Never thought I'd be so into an anime about poetry cards XD The suspense is intense and you can't help but cheer Chihaya and her team mates on! It's a very good watch if you like competition and character building. There are life lessons it teaches and they way Chihaya accepts defeat but it only pushes her to try harder is something to be admired.

  • If you want your heart to pound every episode This is the anime
    This anime is marvelous, you would not expect a card game to be so intense let alone make such a grand show! The protagonist is strong and well developed she does not start off as a weak character on the contrary she is a motivated girl with a love of karuta. the other characters do not fall on the wayside her childhood buddy's show massive growth throughout both seasons especially Taichi.Each ...

    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 ...

    Different but Good!!
    I definitely like to try watching anime in different genres so I am extremely happy I gave Chihayafuru a try. I will admit that the first epodes were hard to get into. There were times when I just wanted to drop it but didn't. I instead had tears, rejoiced and cheered for different characters. This show may take a while to get to where it needs to be but it is so worth it.

    What only five stars?!
    I cannot say enough about this show. It's now my all time favorite!

    If you're wondering if this show is even remotely related to sports or has that same sport anime suspense feel, trust me, it has it!

    What I liked most was the theme song. It actually fit the mood of the show very well.
    I usually just skip the theme song, but this show actually makes me hesitate!

    Every episode has ...

    A Masterpiece (in my humble opinion)
    Chihayafuru is a beautifully drawn, somewhat slower paced, slice-of-life/sports fusion anime. Centering around the competitive card game Karuta, the show skillfully depicts the characters and their changing relationships to both Karuta and each other. The contrast between the main characters' younger and present day selves, and the maturity with which the show treats them provides a character ...

    GREAT STORY! Deep & Passionate Emotions!
    I watched this anime to of curiosity,, because I like poems I got deeply attached with the story as well, like Chihaya (the heroin) fell in love with Arata since they were young because of the game. Little did she know that his other childhood friend, tai chi is in love with her and is doing his best to match up with Arata's skills just so Chihaya would notice him. On top of that, this anime made ...
