    A Unique Find in the Sea of Anime
    The animation is extremely beautiful. Unlike most anime that I've watched, the dynamic state of the characters never becomes old, and rarely does a given situation become stagnant. Seeing how the anime is based off of karuta, the anime itself in no way is redundant and has much to offer in terms of offering things to learn both culturally and within the characters' lives. Highly recommended.

    Starts Strong, Gets Cheesy in a Hurry
    The first few episodes of Chihayafuru are quite strong with a good emotional sensibility and some nice animation, but things really fizzle out quickly at about the fourth episode when the obsession over the game becomes pathetic.

    The sweeping score sounds like something right out of the cheesiest Hollywood schmaltz, while some scenes are just unbearably hokey without adding anything to the ...

    A thought on Chihayafuru
    I have had a deep love of anime since I watched Princess Mononoke for the very first time when I was around 10 years old, followed immediately by Evangelion which I wasn't even able to conceptualize at that age but still had an awe for.

    Over the many following years, I have watched anime that have popped up or snatched my interest until recently when I've begun to take interest in not only ...

  • 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 ...

    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!

  • 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 ...

    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 ...
