    Can't wait for the second season to start in TWO days!!!
    This is the best shojo anime I ever watched, it's really a sports anime in my opinion. This anime makes me want to play the game Karuta so bad and feel so sad that I don't know enough Japanese to play it.

    Anyway, enjoy!!!

    chihayafuru review 5 stars
    if you like hikaru no go, you will most likely like this.
    there are some more shoujo elements, meaning relationship stuff, but it's not so much that it detracts from the story.

    fascinating to learn about how to play this game, since it never occurred to me that there'd be competitions for it!

    Amazing Art, Dissapointing plot.
    First let me start of saying that i am a very big anime fan i've watched about any anime out there, but this anime was a big dissapointment, when I first started watching this i noticed the amazing art , the eyes are absoloutley stunning! But the plot did not live up to the amazing art. It is very slow paced and the so called "love triangle" is a big flop. Most of the show is spent with ...

    I really enjoyed this anime
    I really hope they will have a second season. This anime is great if you want to watch a love, funny and game-type of anime. I don't see Chihaya with neither Arata nor Taichi, though I'd like to. She seems more in love with karuta than anything else.

    Love their determination!!!
    This show was good in a awkward kind of way. Chihaya is very airheaded, but she has the determination of a bull LOL. I LOVE TAICHI !!!!!!!!!!!!!! everybody is saying who they want to go together. like taichi or chihaya or arata and chihaya. For me it would definetly be taichi and chihaya. They've known each other for the longest and they have more chemistry, well to taichi they do. its kind of a ...

    Anime with card game and friendship...
    Yu-Gi-Oh, anyone?

    Joking aside, I was rather surprised that how the author managed to make a card game into something with depth by explaining the game's advanced tactics, as well as its attachments to Japanese literature, without having to leave the audience the feeling of being left out. Though using high school as the setting has been over-done especially in recent anime, I was quite ...

    Charming, Nostalgic and Inspiring
    Karuta is an elegant and meaningful game and I'm glad that Chihayafuru has brought it into the limelight. I haven't felt this way since Hikaru no Go, and I am especially glad to have a possible love story play out in the background. The characters are great to watch as they grow and train. So bittersweet!
