    Well done but not much happening
    Many who review anime are huge anime fans who will give anything a glowing review. I enjoy anime, but often use reviews to help me to chose which one to watch next. For that reason I value accurate reviews and I try to be a bit more objective than some.

    First, the story -- there isn't much of one. A child teaches two of his friends a game and the three of them continue to compete in this game ...

    Slice of Life worth experiencing!!!!
    I just finished watching the animer series and I would have to say that it was truely a pleasure this series. I wish I have had such a passion for something in my early youth. I always love watching anime series like these that gives a person some insight that there is always something beautiful in the world to do besides trying to figure your everyday struggles. I would recommend it to ...

    ah i liked it! super!
    ok so im giving this 5 stars even though its not my favorite! im more of an action/supernatural anime type person so this anime to me didnt have a lot of intensity for me. but the drama and romance aspect was adorable and this kept me pretty well entertained! this slice of life/drama romance is fun and recommended by me

    Obessive Teen Determination
    A show about a girl who can't let go of her past.
    A competition that is pretty much unknown.
    A fun story and characters that can be inspiring and uplifting.
    Drags a bit at times, but still worth watching.
    Should keep going so we can find out how the love triangle sorts out.

    It's just a card game...
    If you judge this show on the premise you will miss an insightful look into friendship and competition, dreams and the humble path to achieving them.

    Each character fits standard archetypes but they are developed in a way that is enjoyable. My only gripe would be Porky's voice acting. I actually muted the show during his scenes after awhile to avoid further pain. Beyond that single flaw, this ...

    Beautiful in more ways than just art.
    What originally drew me to this anime was it's stunning art style, especially in it's coloring. I first came across it a Taichi x Chihaya amv. The amv didn't show any clips of the main premise of the show, the card game Karuta, so when I started it I was surprised. I thought this was going to be just another shoujo school love story, but it's more than that. The love tones of the story are very ...

  • Five out of Five! A Must See!
    I was so moved by this series that several times I found myself laughing and crying at the same time. That hasn't happened to me in years. I was very invested in these characters, not only Taichi, and Chihaya, but the entire karuta team, and Arata too. Even their instructor! There is a lot of love put into this show, and it comes through loud and clear. As it is, Chihayafuru is classified as a ...

    Wow was this anime surprising! Absolutely recommend!!
    I generally avoid animes that are about board games, cards, or "sports" because they generally focus so much on the games/sports that the characterization and drama are totally left out, aside from "game drama". By this, I mean that all of the "draw" of these sorts of animes is "who's going to win!?". That... gets boring after an episode or two... but this anime, was out of this world!!!
    I'd ...
