  • 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.

  • 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 ...

    Absolutely imaculate
    Was hoping for a second season and was so excited to hear it was coming. This truly conveys their passion and dedication for something they love as well as the frustration of failure to me. It it thrilling to watch the characters ride on an emotional roller coaster on their journey to achieve their goal!

  • This is a great Anime!
    After reading many of the reviews here I decided to give it a try. I'm very glad I did! It's rare in real life to meet a person as driven as Chihaya. Her love for Karuta is inspiring. Each character approaches this game differently which is interesting to watch and their lives seems to be unfolding with each episode.

    After two episodes of the 1st season I was hooked. It's a great addition ...
