  • Chihayafuru, a Coming of Age Anime and Ode to Japanese Literature and Sport
    I'm about to make a very bold statement that Otakus far and wide may gasp at. Hold on to the seats of your pants people.

    This is an anime to rival Naruto in terms of its "Coming of Age" theme. Both animes are extremely different in other aspects, Naruto taking a hell of a lot of cultural context from Japanese history and ingeniously weaving it into its background. References to samurai motifs ...

  • Stirring Emotion As Easily As Blossoms On the Breeze
    I can't say that the premise for this show moved me, but the way the characters - particularly the main ones - certainly did! Sublime interaction, wonderful life in motion moments, and beautiful animation style lead you on a delightful journey into part of Japanese culture at it's best. A must see!

    Up there with Kimi Ni Todoke
    This anime sat in my Q for the longest time. It didn't catch fire for me until the third episode of the first season and then I was hooked. The characters are all very appealing, especially Chihaya, whose passion and desire to play Karuta and be with her friends is truly inspiring. Still, there's something sad about her that I can't quite put my finger on yet. She needs an outlet for her love, ...

  • Hikaru no Go in Shoujo form
    For me this is reminiscent of Hikaru no Go. It makes you excited about something that you couldn't imagine being exciting.

    The characters radiates warmth, their individual story lines catch us with unexpected empathy towards them. The story is about Karuta, but also about friendship, desire and dreams.

    While some of the story isn't exactly unique to the girls Anime, but I feel this doesn't ...

    Amazing and Addicting
    I tend to lean towards romantic high school anime without all the sport action like Toradora. But this is amazing! It has the right blend of action, romance, laughs, and suspense. You'll watch a 20 min. episode and wish it was longer! The characters all develop really well, and you find yourself rooting for your favorite member when watching. It is addicting.

    Addicting Story! Love it
    So I was a dork and watched SEASON 2 first because I totally didn't notice the drop down section for season 1. With that said, it didn't matter. The story is amazing! I zoomed through S1 in 2 days.
