    So amazing, best I've ever watched!
    This is so good, you won't believe it. Incredible plot, and you spend half the season laughing, and the other half crying. Second season was well done, and actually added something to the show, unlike other animes. Hoping for a continuation, a season three would be amazing!

  • Hoping for another season
    Just finished the last episode to night.
    I realy enjoyed this series. I hope more episodes come out.
    I would like to see Chinaya go to the camp then take on the Queen.
    I will just have to hunt around for the manga until then.

    Here's your next game play anime
    This series really defines what a good anime should be like. It is based off a very old card game called Karuta where the object is to steal cards placed between two players. Sound boring? It is anything but that. It is so intense and the manner in which they progress the matched and the interactions is so well done I can't imagine anyone not enjoying it. Its very funny too! Lots of characters but ...

  • first review ever....
    beyond amazing ><..

    M always at the edge of my seat during every episode and this is the only series, especially once you get season 2, where I swear time goes by in seconds instead of minutes.

    Arata Faito!

    Truly One of the Best
    Who would've thought that watching an anime about a card game could be so great
    Chihayafuru is charming and pleasantly heartfelt. What I love about the series besides the fantastic characters is how the storyline unfolds perfectly. There's emphasis on how the characters develop into genuinely interesting and unique personalities. It keeps you in suspense as the characters' romantic overtones and ...

    Great for those wanting to learn more about Japanese culture.
    Before Chihayafuru, Karuta was a game that was almost completely unknown outside of Japan. I typically stay away from shows like this, even if it's based on real games (ex. Hikaru no Go), but this show is different. I've watched the first 50 episodes that have been released to this point, and it looks like it may be another year or so before/if we get Chihayafuru 3 since the manga is not that far ...

    Chihayafuru Review!!
    This anime may start out with an incredibly slow pace, but if one sticks with it, it is an amazing series to watch. The best thing about this anime is the fact that it develops over time, especially with each and every one of its large cast of characters. I highly recommend others to watch Chihayafuru for three reasons: the characters, the animation, and the experience of watching karuta itself. ...

    Recommend for anyone human.
    Chihayafuru is an amazing series. From the music to the art, and then to the storyline. I never thought that an anime would make me want to play a cardgame based on Japanese poetry so much, but there you go. I definitely recommend Chihayafuru for anyone human. I cannot think of a single person who wouldn't enjoy it ^_^

    Now The Flower Blooms
    TL;DR: Emotional, sportsy, fun. Kind of slow pace. Worth the watch/stick with it.

    I did not start Chihayafuru until the very end of the first season. Initially I thought it seemed kind of lame according to the summary. I don't watch "sports" animes and this seemed like that. When I started hearing from a lot of people that it was one of the best shows of that season I changed my mind and gave ...
