Chihayafuru (2011) Anime Review

Misaki PureBlood | December 18, 2014 | | |

SYNOPSIS
Chihayafuru written and illustrated by Yuki Suetsugu.

Chihaya Ayase is a lighthearted tomboy, who's not especially good at anything in particular. Her dream has always been for her sister (an aspiring model) to become the number one beauty of Japan, or perhaps of the world. But then one day she meets Arata Wataya (her classmate) who tells her that a dream is something that should concern only herself and something she has to work hard for as well.

At the same time, Chihaya discovers a passion for the old Japanese game hyakunin isshu, also called "karuta" a Japanese card game when he play one game with Arata. Two of them start play karata in a group with with Taichi Mashima, Chihaya's smart and athletic childhood friend, until they have to part ways during their middle school years due to several circumstances.

Now in high school, Chihaya is reunited with her childhood friend, Taichi Mashima. Together, they form the Mizusawa Karuta Club. With her teammates and friends supporting her, Chihaya strives to become the best karuta player in the world and to one day be with Arata again.

MY OPINION

This is the best indoor game anime <3 I really love how Chihaya not giving up on karuta even though there were many obstacles. 

Chihayafuru anime is about friendship, dreams, love interest. 

Chihayafuru make me fall in love with karuta game. I even try to find karuta English version, but yeah.. even if I found.. Its not fun to play karuta using that. I prefer using karuta real version :3

I don't know how to persuade you guys, but.. once you watch the first episode and next, you will find how interesting is it. (I don't understand why some doesn't like this anime, maybe they didn't like indoor sport? or don't understand or find its meaningless? or maybe its not their taste) We can't force them to like it though ahaha XD

RATED BY ME

4/5

FAVOURITE CHARACTER


First row: Chihaya & Arata | Second row: Taichi & Tsutomu | Third row: Yusei & Akito

Someone who already watch Chihayafuru might wonder relationship I support.. Oh don't~ Actually I ship Chihaya with Arata but at the same time I ship Chihaya with Taichi because I feel pity for him TT^TT Gomenasai... don't hate me.. :'(

Who else ships Arata X Chihaya?
