THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Everyone watching the game of someone who is pro, but is not good in personality. He won 4 times.

So that Queen also won.

All of them got depressed because both of the winners are really strong. Seems like Chihaya has an advantage?

Megane guy's been doing statistic and said Chihaya still has chance?! Arata and Taichi phone call, and he thought of strategy? His sempai came to Arata all of the sudden.

Chihaya reading poems and the kimono girl accompanying her. She told Chihaya that she's into reading the poems and wants to read for Chihaya, but didn't realize that it would take a long time...

Taichi, too, being serious and different after the phone call talk with Arata. To take the cards faster than the enemy. lol @ Taichi scary-ing Chihaya.

They are being differently serious.

The teacher is trying to protect karuta club from them getting away (because other teachers want to get other things in the room: too large for 5 people). She left a note to have 5 more people to be added in the club or to move the club room. lol @ Chihaya's posting the poster like very first series.

OP is ED. It was a refreshing series.

Hmm, correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure there's an OP for this episode and the Ending was also the same.

This was such a good show :') It really got me into a sport I never really heard of and I hope I actually get the chance to play it. I love the show and it actually got itself into my top 5. Was anyone else hoping for a Tachi x Chihaya moment? Hoping for a second because they honestly can't keep it just at that!

Anyways, interesting episode although it didn't leave to my expectations. The match was somewhat interesting although I was expecting Chihaya to take the stand rather than a supporting character.

Great series though and worth my time watching although it did not make it into my top 5 for this season.

Karuta is serious business so:



Now, I'm hoping for a season 2 in the future considering its popularity and sales in Japan.

7/10 for me.

Fantastic conclusion. Really liked how it ended up going full circle with showing how the Karuta Club had changed in a year as well as the premise of new recruits to similarly be transfixed by Karuta. Couldn't really ask for any more for Madhouse. They didn't cut back on the animation at all even though the home video sales for Chihayafuru were quite lacking. I'd love a second season, but I'm realistic to know that it's most likely not going to happen.

5/5 for this episode,
9.5/10 for the series.

There were times i was about to lower it to 7 because there were a little boring episodes and Chihaya is annoying. Jeez, marry karuta already! >.>
If someone else was the main character, it would've been better. I don't like her.

OMG! Taichi's moves! *faints*

God, Arata blushing when Taichi calls him, haha. How shounen-ai-ish xD.

Noooooooooooo not the Daddy Bears!

I was actually platinum satisfied with this last episode. It sort of consolidated all the characters working towards a similar goal... sans Nikuman. One of the funniest parts would be when Kana's dream was shot down momentarily by none other than Chihaya; who would have thunk that she would know something like that.

I wish there was some sort of conversation between Chihaya and Arata's sexy voice though.
Either way, 10/10, just like how it started.

FUCKING NEED SEASON 2 NAO!

I was looking forward to that since the birthday episode, but... nothing happened. That's the main thing that disappointed me.
Anyway, interesting show, it has a great cast of characters, but I think it spent way too many episodes on karuta games. I would have liked more character development.
On another note, I'm never ever gonna play karuta, it's seriously a sport for masochists.
8/10

Bye Chihaya, and thanks for everything.

Fantastic.
10/10 and going into my favs.

I didn't think something based on karuta could be this brilliant.

Seriously. We can only hope.
It's just begging for another season.


basabeo said:

ME.
It was disappointed when the credits were rolling and nothing happened.


We are getting more Taichi x Arata action more than anything.
Arata was blushing like a schoolgirl when he saw Taichi's call.
He probably did an inward squeal too.

the last episode is quite enjoyable.
overall : i love this show so much. 9/10 due to lack of conclusion in this season. if chihaya is a wasted beauty then this show is a wasted wonderful anime if they don't plan to make its 2nd season.
dammit i really hope to see chihaya as the queen and lover of either taichi or arata ( right now im supporting for taichi though. he deserves chihaya more and arata looks better as a lone wolf with meijin title. that would be my ideal ending :3 )

And so the show comes to an end, already having a new goal for the future: Gaining five new members in order to keep their old practice room. Kana also intends to become a certified reader.

It's an open end without having explored the expected love triangle but that's fine with me as this anime doesn't really need this in my opinion. It's already one of the best anime this season nonetheless.

I just hope that the ending card and the new subplot about the new members hint at a second season. This series needs one so badly....

5/5, 9/10. Best anime of the last two seasons.

You're kidding me. You have to be kidding me.
There wasn't any conclusion to the character's relationships.
And I didn't mean the pairing way.
We still don't know... how Arata actually stands with Chihaya and Taichi. There just wasn't... enough.

If there isn't going to be a second season, what am I going to do?
I loved this show, but this episode disappointed me a lot.

I was pleasantly surprized by this show. Enjoyed it from start to finish and everything was perfect even tho it was about game I never heard of and seemed boring at start . Final score 9/10

I will strangle a puppy if this never gets 2nd season while tons of crap shows got their 2nd seasons .

I feel the exact same way. It was such a great show and then the last episode is just like- What.

Such an empty feeling :P

The ending was better than I expected it to be. I thought the last episode was going to be really tangential, but I like how it ended up adding some final depth to the main characters. Still, I have to say, it wasn't as good as I was hoping for, but nonetheless, the show as a whole was great.
I agree though; it NEEDS a second season. Arata still feels like a detatched character and I want to see what happens to the trio. And Taichi... must see more Taichi!

I think it'll be another year until the 2nd part of the series, being that I think the anime is actually ahead of the manga. lol

5/5 for the ep, and 10/10 series

But yeah, it's so OBVIOUS that this needs another season or two. or a bunch of OVAs. >.>;;;

This was seriously too good... Superb animation, good voice actors, really nice music. It's obvious they worked really hard on this. 5/5 9/10 from me. It really needs a second season. It would be to sad to not have one when there are so many crappy anime that get way more attention. I hope it's popular in japan :/

SEASON 2 IS NECESSARY!
such a beautiful show. i loved every minute of it. i feel like the adventure has just begun for chihaya since she ultimately failed this season. there's clearly a whole lot more story that is there so to be able to see it all unfold until the very end would be delightful. arata and taichi's friendship going into full bloom this episode made me so happy. i will do a black flip when i find out there's a s2. until then, you'll always be in my heart chihaya. <3 much love - 9/10! :D

that.

I had never imagined that a "card game-anime" could entertain me like Chihayafuru did, is such a shame many people didn't even watch it because "the plot was not interesting".

I really loved and enjoyed it, there were not any episode I got bored, the characters were so likeable , specially Arata & Taichi x3. It really need a second season T^T PLEASE MADHOUSE!
(If they do then I would even buy the BD or something for support)

10/10 without a doubt

I was so glad they didn't go for a forced ending with a resolution of the love triangle or anything silly like that. Instead we got a solid setup for the second season (if and when it happens). I moved the rating to 10/10 weeks ago and I too was somewhat surprised that a show about a card game quickly became one of my favourites over the past two seasons. (Of course the series is also about the relationships between the players so that added to the enjoyment.)

Oh god, Chiayafuru is actually over... Damn my Tuesdays will never be the same...
It also seems like a new season is unlikely,but as soon as the english translated manga catches up, I'll definently be reading that.
Anyways, a great final episode, I enjoyed how the anime seemed to follow the manga really well and the characters and how the ending since the manga doesn't really end there, just sets up for the next part (which if was an anime I would be sooooooooooo thankful for).
Anyways, I love Chihaya and this has been a 10/10 anime for me

yea, so many created cliffhangers than closures. some cliffhangers werent before and were actually created in the last episode. its like a whole set up for a next episode and seemed like they already know there will be a season 2

regardless, awesome anime!

This show easily gained a 10/10 for me from the first couple episodes with little Arata, Chihaya, & Taichi.

I NEED A SEASON 2!!
Chihaya has to make it further in the competition!!
AND ARATA NEEDS TO COME BACK FOR GOOD xD

I could've sworn they were hinting some BL between Taichi and Arata in this episode! I mean, Arata blushed when Taichi phoned him -_-.

Anyways, I love how they ended it with the whole nostalgic factor and how the last scene was a homage to the first scene of this anime. Wow. I feel like dying in a hole now that Chihayafuru is over.

9/10 for me, so close to a 10/10 but I would've liked more episodes. If you guys liked this anime you should DEFINITELY check out Hikaru no Go. I get the exact same vibe from these two anime. And I rated Hikaru no Go a 10, too.

Oh, one more thing, PLEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAASSSSSEEEEEEE have a 2nd season! I hate how shows like Yuru Yuri are getting one but Chihayafuru is probably not. Sigh, just because not as many people have good taste...

And I just about jizzed in my pants when Taichi started swinging his arm. I am going to make him 3-D and marry him someday...

If this episode doesn't scream To be continued... then nothing does.

Great series, I'm on the fence between 9 and 10 but I'll go with 10.
