So its over. The last ep was really great, especially the music was really fitting.

Overall this show hada great beginning, got really bad in the middle and better at the end again. But still it was a bit disappointing since after the first ep I thought it would be more drama instead of slice-of-life.

Characterwise this show was really good. The only character which was unlikeable was Chihayas sister, but gladly she didnt appear often. The rest of the cast were pretty good, especially the karuta club was a nice watch since they all were completely different but still had a good atmosphere together. Ok Chihaya was quite unbearable in the middle since she was only moping around after losing again and again, but except for this she was an interesting lead.

Animation style was strange sometimes, especially the faces looked weird a lot of times.

Overall a enjoyable series which should get a second season since its quite disappointing not seeing an actual end to everything.
8/10 from me.

I finished watching this one earlier this weekend, and think id put it down as my favorite series of the season. I have a problem with a lot of sports animes because they tend to be about baseball or soccer, and i think this followed the sports anime style but was a breath of fresh air to it. A mix of slice of life, sports, and a little drama. All of the characters were enjoyable unique people who didnt feel like archetypal rehashes and their interactions and troubles were great too. I didnt think id ever enjoy watching a series about a game id never play or experience, but i was wrong.

Now for the knocks, there wasnt much personal character progression as it focused more on competitive karuta and their advancements there, as well as the friendships. Also the show moved at quite the slow pace and little progress was really made between eps 10 and 25 other thsn their karuta progressions. The ending also left a lot to be desired, but id hope there will be a second season given how good this one was.

Overall, an 8/10 from me. An interesting story that stood on its own and had a lot to enjoy. Would recommend and dont regret the watch one bit.

History is always written wrong, and so always needs to be rewritten.

I was bickering in my head about what to watch, I at one point thought I had become exhausted from watching all the anime marathons I had been doing lately.

I was trying to choose between these shows:-

Un-Go, Kimi ni Todoke Season 2, Medaka Box, Kuroko no Basket, Kokoro Connect, Chihayafuru.

I honestly didn't know what to start watching, I finally settled with Chihayafuru because I was thinking I might as well since the 2nd season starts in January.

Saw the first episode and it has become an instant addiction and I'll probably finish this before the weekend.

Lolz, I was suppose to post this before I watched the 2nd episode and I just realised I hadn't.

The 2nd episode was even better and I know Mashima stole his glasses but I understand some of the reasons why he did that. I'm secretly rooting for him and Chihaya to become a couple in the future but that's probably going to take forever.

For the time being this series is pretty darn good and I'm happy I chose it, I guess one of the main reasons is that Hikaru no Go was one of the recommended series for it and HnG is awesome.

I'll report back once I've finished the first season.

I have absolutely no regrets, I have pretty much fallen in love with this series, it was brilliant from start to end and I am so happy that it's getting a 2nd season, January feels so far away! XD

(*Crap...I completely forgot I was writing this post*)

I finished the first season about 2 hours ago and now I'm reading the manga, its pretty darn entertaining.

Once I started, I pretty much couldn't stop watching and I did it in one run, it took me about 12 hours, I know one of the episodes was a recap so I skimmed through it but I watched everything in the episode that was brand new, particularly the comedy word-game segments. rolleyes.gif

I'm cheering for the TaichiXAyase couple!

My rating is of course biased because I fell head-over-heels in love with this series and I'm giving it a masterpiece rating of 10/10. biggrin.gif
