  • Something different and unexpected
    Very interesting and educational as well...I loved the idea of having different ways of showcasing the stories behind each poem - from a news flash to a tv show interview. It gave me a glimpse into Japanese history of poetry. It also sort of gave me a better appreciation of the anime Shihara-Furu. Love it!

  • This was different from what I am used to
    It took a while to get hooked into the series, there were a few filler moments in there as well, but for the most part I surprisingly liked it. I can't stand the opening music though. v.v I did like how it pertained to love and that the characters correlated with each other throughout the episodes. Once you make yourself watch the first two episodes, you may find yourself hooked to finish the rest.

  • A Flower Bud Hidden in a Sea of Tall Grass
    I read reviews that said this show had a correlation to the Chihayafuru series. So what could it hurt to watch it?
    After watching this series, I'd say that this is a truly inspirational and great imaginative take on historical figures who influenced the culture, art, and literature of Japan in the past.
    I find the true to life stories to be the real clincher for this series that sets it apart ...

    Poetry at its finest!
    At first glance I was not interested at all in Utakoi but it popped up under romance so I put it in my queue and thought I would give it a chance. Plus it was about the hundred poets and that was in Chihiya Furu which I enjoyed thoroughly so I gave this series a try. I was so very glad that I did, it has a beautiful style of animation and wonderful music, and the stories are so beautifully tragic ...

    Utakoi- through my eyes
    Quality- I love the animation style in which it is drawn. I have always been told a heavy outline ruins the realistic properties of art but it is used very well in this anime.

    4.5/5

    Sound- Great voice actors and excellent use of music I greatly enjoyed the opening theme.

    5/5

    Story- Each story through out the 13 episodes tie into one another beautifully and never counterdict each other. ...

    Uma leitura cômica e moderna das 100 cartas
    A série gira em torno de Fujiwara no Teika, o narrador e responsável pela seleção e coleta dos 100 poemas. Com alguns trechos cômicos, necessários para dar leveza à história, a série desenvolveu muito bem as partes dramáticas em que o ápice é alcançado na leitura e interpretação de cada poema.

    Imagino que fosse impraticável abordar os 100 poemas (nem que demorasse mais duas temporadas), porém ...

  • Stories behind famous romance poetry
    This is a well done anime on historical love poems, and how they came to be. Each episode is a one shot. The art is unique and beautifully done to represent the poetry and story representing them. If you have watched Chihayafuru, this gives the story of each card. I highly recommend this to anyone preferring mature historical romance.

    The appeal is in poetry
    If you're a fan of poetry, I would recommend UtaKoi. The episodes are story driven, most of them are one shots. The bgm and animation don't stand out much, but the romance and historical poems are unique.
