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.

But DVD/BD sales isn't the only consideration that is taken into account. What I had heard about this show in particular, was that the initial reason for making the anime was to boost manga sales. In that case, DVD/BD sales are a secondary consideration. When you look at the first week sales figures for the past few volumes of Chihiyafuru, you see a nice 10-12% increase in first-week-of-release sales from the previous volume for all of the volumes released after the anime started. That is some significant results! That said to me that they would be putting out another season, to try to drive more people to the manga. (I even bought the first two volumes, in the Bilingual edition. My first manga purchase from Japan, as opposed to a US licensor.)

I am sooooo looking forward to more of Chihiya and the gang coming to a screen near me!!!!

I love this anime. Chihayafuru...is an amazing anime, I just wish they would make a second season. The ending "soshite ima" was my favorite song in this anime. It's a wonderful anime that doesn't rush but progresses in a good pace that it feels realistic in that sense. You can't become a great Karuta player without hardship and struggles and perseverance. Even when you are down in the dumps, you'll realize soon that you won't improve or get better by staying there.

I jumped for joy when I saw the ANN announcement on my twitter feed. Then saw CR pick up on it a bit later. I DO hope it's here on CR.. I hope it also raises the awareness of season 1 here on CR.. I loved this series and I came late to the party! I'm sure more will enjoy this series as well!

Just to add to what Zensunni has said, here's a direct quote from an anime blogger

Blu-ray and DVD sales were pretty decent for a Josei show - about 2500 per volume. TV ratings were pretty good for a Midnight airing, though they don't matter much at that hour. Probably most important was the success of the manga, whose sales spiked considerably after the anime began airing. That was arguably the top priority of the anime in the first place from a commercial standpoint.


Anyway, OMG THIS IS HAPPINESSSSSSSSSSSS. I need my regular dose of Taichi Tuesdays again. Chihayafuru rekindled my love for anime because of it's beautiful character development. I can't wait to journey and grow with the characters once more.

I download the series and I'm reserving it for my semester break. However, I already read some feedbacks and reactions with the plot and characters. Hmmm, I'm not really sure if I would like it or not since Sport Genre isn't my thing. I just thought the Kurata is interesting. Until now I have no idea how this game works.
Another thing, almost everyone else is rooting for the Eye-Glasses Guy which is sad because I prefer the other one. LOL. Oh well. It only has light romance.

No need to watch downloaded copies, it is all here on CR...

As for "sports genre" it is not really your typical sports genre show. Sure, there are sections where it concentrates on the strategies and mentality of the player, etc... but for the most part, it is all about the characters, and they are GREAT! (And I don't know who is cheering for the "Eye-Glasses Guy" (Arita), Taichi is the right guy for Chihaiya, she just doesn't realize it yet! (Men aren't the only ones that can be a clueless wonder in anime!)
