    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 ...

    Card Throwing Fun!!!
    Chihayafuru is about Chihaya a girl with no talents and nothing to do. She feels sorry for Arata a classmate. They discover a beautifully addicting card game together. This is unexpectedly good! Why? I'm not really sure. The animation is amazing, the story is easy to follow and interesting. But why it stands out? If I had to "show my hand" it's the card game! The game is astonishingly cool, and ...

    Almost missed this 0_0
    I saw Chihayafuru a couple times while scrolling through the shows I could watch on Crunchyroll. It slipped my mind for awhile, didn't seem like something i was interested in. But one day I googled a anime similar to Hanasaku Iroha (http://www.crunchyroll.com/hanasaku-iroha) and took a shot at it. I must say I'm hooked on it now.

  • 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 ...
