Finally saw the sub of the OVA.. HILARIOUS!!!!!!! I really wish CR would have it though. Doubtful since they never added the OVA's to Usagi Drop either
Or Mysterious Girlfriend or Say I Love You or My Little Monster... the manga bundled OVAs never come here, rarely even to Funimation or Sentai. The latter get the disc only bonus episodes generally as long as they buy the home video rights but you usually have to buy the manga or go dark side if you want to see the OVAs.

I will probably get the Genshiken OVA in December... jeez, not even that far away! I love that manga and the anime was a treat though once again I expect it will be anime only silliness as that's what they tend to do...

I disappointed myself by expecting the OVA to pick up where the second season left off, which wouldn't have made sense but I was thinking it anyway. Oh well. SEASON THREE HURRY UP I WANT TO WATCH YOU ALREADY.

Given that we don't even have a legal way of seeing the OVA I'm annoyed by that And Insomnist I'm happy they didn't cover stuff that was in the manga honestly.. they already have issues with lack of content for season 3. I'd rather they just pad OVA if they have to have one than rip stuff that they can put in season 3. As it is.. it's still a year away at the minimum

The one thing they could do is a middle school side anime season based upon the 3 novels. There is probably enough there for 1 cour if they wanted to tide things over and bump up the novel sales which is really pitiful compared to the manga. We can dream... otherwise I don't think we'll be seeing Chihayafuru 3 soon as season 2 was announced last September on the belt around volume 18. Since volume 22 with the OVA did NOT announce season 3 I don't think there is any chance of it being this winter

I have to admit, the Chihayafuru OVA gave me some decent laughs even though there were no Karuta matches.

I loved the duality of Sumire the "hey I'm cute and love me" on the outside and then you get the real Sumire on the inside. Her freaking out over Tskuba was hysterical. The kiss in the beginning though was the part I kept laughing at.. the ..oooh.. my.. lips.. can't.. reach.. damn.. you.

Not what I was expecting but I did have some laughs. So...is theres a season 3 in the works? I know the manga was still on going after Season 2 ended and I don't read the manga so please no spoilers.
Fingers crossed for season 3. Thanks for sharing and discussing your thoughts on this thread on this wonderful series xD

I very much hope so, but they need more source material (which should take about a year). The manga is published twice a month, and the second season ended partway through chapter 93. Currently they're on chapter 121.

I hope so too Everyone is telling the anime has to wait for the manga to catch up since it publishes at a glacial pace. The content though is soooooooooooooooooo worth seeing.. I couldn't help it and am utterly spoiled. I'll cry if they don't animate that! But not there is no official announcement for it yet. It did well though, at least IMO to warrant a 3rd season.

Unless my searches are failing, I don't see that set for sale yet. Was supposed to be out along with manga volume 23 and middle school novel 4, both of which I've already ordered. But I don't see the teaching set yet.

Yes, the release date for all three is the same but I only see the manga and the novel for sale, not the card set.

I already ordered a few different "How to Karuta" for English speakers but I guess I'll look at that one too. I really want to memorize as much as I can because I'm going to Japan this summer and I get to watch Karuta at the Budokan!

Let us know if and when you find the set.
