  • Another card game made into an anime
    However, this one is different. This is about a game which pre-exists the anime and involves Japanese high culture going back centuries. This is an anime about a high school team which plays competitive team karuta. Plotting, pacing and characterizations are far beyond what other game-based shows provide. Maybe some of this is that it's aimed for a slightly older market, but either way - this is a ...

    My favorite anime!!!
    Whenever I first watched chihayafuru I thought it would be really boring. Then as i got more into it I wanted to watch more. I am always excited for the new episodes.I love this anime so much! I would most definitely recommend this to anyone who has never watched it. This is a must see anime.

  • My Favorite Anime, Amazing!
    I never write reviews for anime, but this is the only anime I am watching episode by episode, its such an amazing work. So greatly put together, I really love Chihayafuru. The plot may be about Karuta, a sport many arent familiar with, but it is so exciting! Recommended to anyone.

    Characters you will care about!
    I pushed off watching this anime for a long time, I did not think that a show about Karuta could be interesting but I found it to be very much so! I ended up emotionally invested in the characters and really wanting to know what was going to happen next. The romance is not as strong as I prefer but it is there and there's no doubt about the strength of their feelings even though it is not as ...

  • If you haven't watched this anime, you MUST watch it.
    At first, I didn't really expect much from this anime. I only started watching it because my sisters recommended it to me. However, as I watched it, I've became so engrossed in it. The story-line is good and the characters are awesome. I, myself have to recommend this anime. It's definitely a must watch. *-*

    Great Characters; Well animated
    This anime will not be for everyone My husband HATED the sound of poem readers, for instance. I, however, really liked this series. It's well animated, the characters are interesting and funny, the story is engaging, the premise is weird but entrancing, the voice acting is very well done, and the music fits the series perfectly. I definitely recommend it!

    Madhouse is the best stuidio + Good mixture of Shonen and Shojyo
    Perhaps the best anime for the past year, superb quality by the best anime studio MadHouse. While anime like Sword Art Online can be only enjoyed by lowteen boy, this anime can be enjoyed by boy/girl/man/woman. Although it is shojo, it's more about friendship and development than romance. you don't have to know about "kyougi karuta", because it's a very esoteric sport for Japanese too.

    A Truly Magnificent piece of work
    My first impressions about this anime were very similar to everyone else's; I assumed it was going to be a boring story about a girl and a bunch of cards. The plot didn't seem to me like something that would be able to grasp my attention. But it amazed me after I watched the show, to what degree I was proven wrong.

    This show is just magnificent- no other words can honestly describe it.

    The ...

  • A very unexpected find
    At first I have to say I wasn't expecting much, and quite frankly all I wanted was just another decently done love story. What I got however was just so much better in ways I can only hope to describe! Constantly I find myself caught up with Chihayafuru's amazing emotional roller coaster. It's not just a good story, it is a story with layers.

    This story surprisingly isn't just stuck on one ...
