Hey guys,

We're announcing another new title for the Fall season: Chihayafuru!! The first episode starts today at 10:30am!



Ayase Chihaya is a sixth grader whose dream is for her older sister to become the top model in Japan. But one day, a transfer student, Wataya Arata, tells her that her dream should be about herself. Arata's dream is to become a famous competitive Karuta player. Chihaya is somewhat shocked when she sees how intense the normally reserved Arata gets about the card game. Eventually, she and her childhood friend Mashima Taichi find themselves being captivated by Karuta. Arata is thrilled by Chihaya's talent and extraordinary hearing, as well as the fact that he has friends to play Karuta with now, but they are forced to go their separate ways after graduating from grade school.

Four years later, Chihaya enters high school and discovers that Arata, who returned to Fukui, no longer plays Karuta. However, she believes that if she continues to play, they will one day be reunited. And so, she and Taichi start a Karuta club at Mizusawa High School.

*Chihayafuru will be available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

hmm...

I remember getting completely addicted to Saki and this sounds like it might be similarly addictive. Going to give this a shot.

This sounds stupid (and not one of the titles I've been looking for), but I'll give it chance before I dismiss it. Here's hoping for a 500 year-old Karuta-master spirit to inhabit the unsuspecting protagonist.....

That picture reminds me of Hikaru no Go.

Edit: "karuta" is that simple grab-a-card game. Not much to explain.
