    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.

    How do I love thee..
    This show is basically about historical love story in Japan. Each episode has different story. I found it great and good to know. It's inspiring and beautiful. I recommend this show to those who like romantic poems

    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.

    poetry lives in the anime and love makes the world go around
    i am not a romantic person. i truly hate harem anime and stupid girl anime that insults girls but this made me want to read poetry and hear it from a man. based on real books from the era. this anime is a true classic that should be used to teach kids that poetry is something that can the world if you let it. if you get the chance get the books they are free on Amason so please go out and watch ...

    An unconventional take on historical romance
    This is how you bring poetry, culture, and romance into an anime. It was so beautifully moving and the poetry from the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu felt so fresh yet timeless in this interpretation. I loved the intentional artwork and stylistic design of the series. The characters were all great although I have to admit that I did have a hard time keeping up with some of them because they had multiple ...
