This really does need a 2nd season and an official DVD Release in the UK, if not there at least in region 1/blu-ray region free so I can import it. Already bought the OST, need to pick up the 2nd one as well. Amazing series

By far the absolute BEST new anime out there! Gets a 5 out of 5 stars for me. 100%

I am hoping for a season 2 where we see Chihaya do a Queen battle and maybe do something about her and Arata!
This anime made me want to learn and play karuta! I am buying cards when I get the chance next! If an anime becomes so inspiring that it changes your life-- that's good anime! The intensity of their emotions and their complexity is something I cannot get enough of. Arata is the perfect guy! So determined and honorable and cool like water! I can't stop using exclamation points! I just love this anime so much! daisuki! honto daisuki Chihayafuru!

"Chihayafuru (ちはやふる). As the series ended yesterday in Japan, we are more than happy to learn that the second season of the Anime was confirmed, secretly. As our source indicated, the confirmation was announced by the staffs and producers without informing the media or press. Expectations have been arose and the second season of the TV Anime will be around early next year, from January to April. And we are likely to see the official announcement coming soon."

What makes it sound more plausible is that its suggesting a single broadcast-season Winter2013 release. That kind of makes sense for a series that is making money in print for the publisher but which did not sell anywhere near enough discs for the distributor to put in a lot of the production budget for the sequel ~ both because a single broadcast-season cuts the production budget in half, and also there are fewer Winter season launches to compete against for attention.

See, the way they make anime in Japan is they make a "production committee". Every company who is in the production committee puts money into the budget in return for something. The DVD distributor gets to make and sell discs. The publisher gets more attention for their manga, light novels, etc., and so more sales. The merchandise company makes money off of merchandise royalties. Sometimes a music company puts money in to promote one of their musical acts. Like that.

The DVD sellers are selling the episodes, so if each episode is making the DVD seller money, 26 episodes can be twice as much money as 13 episodes.

But the publisher, the merchandiser, even a sponsor, they make money because of the attention that the series gets. A 26 week series costs twice as much, but it does not get twice as much attention.

So if the publisher is happy, the merchandiser is happy, maybe a sponsor or a music company is happy ... but the DVD seller is not selling many discs and the DVD seller is unhappy ... that makes a 13 episodes sequel a lot more likely than a 26 episodes sequel.

That's why it sounded like a more reasonable rumor to me, when I saw that it said it would be a single broadcast season.

Personally I like this anime. I think the story is interesting. It may b about karuta but I think it's more about Chihiya trying to find herself.

I am so happy that this series is continuing onward with a second season. I kept hearing how sales weren't all that great and that alone is enough to kill the possibility of a second season.
