Hey everyone ~ ! THIS IS VICTORIA!



I hope you all watched Utakoi like I told you to, because it's time for our first Crunchyroll POETRY SLAM ~ ! ( No, we aren't playing Karuta XD )

There's love in the air here at the Crunchyroll offices ~ And it's all because we've been watching Utakoi ~ ! To keep the positive vibes flowing, we could really use some beautiful POETRY TO READ. This is where you guys come in! Since we don't think it's practical to read 6,389,4389 Robert-Frost-length poems, we're going to ask you all to write some traditional Haiku instead!

Specifically, write some LOVE HAIKU, based on one of the following Crunchyroll titles :


Utakoi

or


Chihayafuru

We will select ONE Grand Prize Winner who will receive a set of KARUTA CARDS. So they can slap them around ~ ! XD

We will also have 4 runner ups, who will receive 90 day premium memberships ~ ! ( Can you say PS3 APP? )

Try your best ~ ! Make sure the Haiku are LOVELY, ROMANTIC, and above all VERY INSPIRED by either Utakoi or Chihayafuru ~ !

Good luck ~ !

OH, the deadline is FRIDAY August 17th at MIDNIGHT PST <3

How do you enter ? Simply submit your haiku in the thread here !





------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And now it's time to announce the winners ~ !!!!




The four runners up ~ ! They will receive 90-day premium memberships ~ !

In a field of cards----
your hand reaches for my heart.
I lost this battle


dreigster

Arata's winter
Clashes with Taichi's summer.
Falls to Karuta.

Aeriya

Part I:

It was two men and
a maiden, as we watched her
grow with laughs and love.

Part 2:

But alas it ends
our childish love, as we join
the moon and the stars.

Does Chihaya love
Karuta cards most of all,
Or playing with hearts?

Awesome job, guys !

YELLOWMANGOES

thanks for this offer I'd love to win the karuta cards, but I'm the more artistic type, not poetic type, but I'll try I love Chihayafuru, heard there's a 2nd season coming?

Swiping cards away,

Making memories today,

So you won't forget.


:D Is this romantic and lovely enough? haha. It sounds sorta depressing. LOL. But it's about building friendships today for the tomorrow, so you'll never forget who you are!

Probably should describe how to write and sentence structure of a haiku to those that don't know,

and my lame entrance.

Moonlight Glistens In Your Eyes
Flowers Hide Their Face

My Utakoi haiku for Victoria:

The black pools of fall,
and snows of winter meadows,
make spring roses bloom.
