Not bad anime overall, but I hoped for more character realationships development. Oh well. At least it wasn't soppy and over-the-top like most animes are. Decent series for easy watch.

I absolutely loved this series. Even if they don't continue on, I'll still be satisfied, but all of the new little plot points they introduced were so great. There's a lot of potential for another solid season. I really liked Kana's new goal of becoming a card reader. I immediately loved Chihaya when I started this show, but Kana was a character that definitely grew on me.

One of the strengths of this show is its beautiful score. They reuse the same music cues over and over, but it's still incredibly effective. I hope this show catches on more and expands beyond its cult audience. It's a terrific gem.

I really love Taichi, he's such a complex and well developed character, I think he will be the one I'll miss the most.
I agree.
They ended two of my all-time favourite animes this week. *cries*

I was a bit disappointed, I was somehow hoping for a TaichixChihaya moment. But oh well...

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.
This, too, to a certain extend.

One of the best series I've seen in recent years. I absolutely love all the characters, the music, the drama, the comedy, the animation, the opening, the ending,... everything!! Now, I want a second season, that would be awesome, please!? *_*

1. I'm so sad that this is over ;__;
2. Screw Chihaya x Arata and Chihaya x Taichi, I'm rooting for the chibi romance
3. I love Arata's pink cellphone and his pink wallpaper, and how Taichi and Arata were talking on the phone together

Wow, I LOVED this episode. It was such a good ending one T_T
K, so the Master won, we see a bit more into his feelings I suppose. I had a total bromance moment there when Taichi called Arata lol XD IS THIS THE TRUE PAIRING?! LOL XD Well Arata's friend that quit is playing again ... hmm ;O
Aww, Tsutomu has notes for Chihaya's one syllable cards :D That was just AMAZING (and I LOVED the music that was played then lol), so touching T_T Then Kana and her dream to become a reader ... loved it! Especially when she realized how hard it was ... lol, class A requirement XD Oh and Taichi practicing his swing was ♥♥♥ HE'S SO COOL XD Even the Empress ... 5 new members?! That will be interesting ... although I kind of like just the 5 that are there already lol X_X
Ah, the next year and Chihaya's the same ... THERE MUST BE A SECOND SEASON! D;
Overall ... wow. I LOVED this show! XD I mean all the characters are AMAZING (ESPECIALLY TAICHI), the animation was really nice and the music was a good touch too :3 Plus I loved how this show made me FEEL ... I could NOT wait every week for the next episode :P I loved it so much ... so ... well, I was debating on whether I should give it a 9 or 10, but eventually decided on 10/10 :D

Loved it! The anime rounded up in style, but what I read is that they followed the Manga until the final episode. I am hopeful for a second season because the anime deserves it.

I seriously don't know why an anime of Chahayafuru's caliber cannot sell DVDs or BDs. I am actually shocked.

Loved the way Komano, Kana-chan and Nishida played important roles in Chihaya's road to become the Queen. While Arata and Taichi became close enough to expect one another's calls and work on their way to become the next Master. The introduction of the current Mastar Suo was intriguing. While I want to see Shinobu-chan lose a bit of (!) her weight.

Great anime. Great moments. Couldn't have asked for more. It was fun. Sometimes sad. Often inspiring. And most importantly, full of passion for the thing they loved, or I should say, the thing that got them all together, as they fell in love with it. Karuta.

If they never make a second season, I want to say this: Chihayafuru will be missed.

A solid 9/10.

Just one word, Josei...

But damn this show is so perfect!

I have no words to describe how this series has surprised me, I enjoyed every episode!

Madhouse hits again, another epic work with a masterful direction.
9/10 nothing more to say

A second season is a MUST for this show. There is so much more karuta and love drama for us to see.

I'm still kinda floored as to how good this show actually turned out. It was so enjoyable. I'm going to miss it : (

A rock solid 9/10

I remember trying out the first episode of this show. I would've never thought it'd be this fun to watch. Really solid series and I really hope that it comes out with a second season. Also really loved the ending. I liked how they left lots of room left for more.

Overall 8/10.

It's a pity how this started out really good and then just got kinda lame halfway through. It started to get kinda boring, not bad, just repetitive. I'm hoping for a second season though. I'd really like to see everyone progress further.

Really liked this and it had a solid ending, but it absolutely needs a second season, it just won't feel right if it ended after this.

A good 8/10.

UGH!!! I feel like I've been watching this anime for years somehow!;____;
I loved it so so much!!♥ One of the few anime I ever gave a perfect 10 to! I think the best part of this episode was definitely Kana-chan's resolutions and adorable shyness~ Such a cutie pie!!(♥ó㉨ò)ノ♡

I REALLLYY REALLLYYYY hope for a second season! In a better time-slot hopefully?? I believe it was way good enough to deserve one!♥ Mega loves for all of these babies, and high hopes to more attention to Arata i the second season~!xD

I love you all! "Let's play Karuta, okay?"♥

Wow a really good show, exceeding way beyond what i had expected. Theres something about this type of shows that draws people to watch it.

Really good series 10/10 and since there are rumors of there being a second season, im jumping on my bed now while gulping down some root beer

The surprise series of Fall 2011 in my opinion.

Wasnt expecting much, but it turned to be a really interesting anime.
Never tought an anime about karuta would be so fun xD

Gets a deserved 9/10 from me. :)

Phenomenal show.... just brilliant in so many ways!

Everything here's pretty much been said but, I have to say...

ARATA'S SMEXY VOICE is hnnnnngggghh.... and Taichi's moves... rawr.

Just so many stellar, beautiful & gentle moments!

9/10. Deserves it 100%.

Season 2.... please?!!?!?!?!?!?

That was a very fun ride! I reallly liked the show, I even liked how they managed the ending (considering the manga is still ongoing) although my 8/10 rating of it could be higher if it didn't make me feel we desperately need a second season to proper finish this story.

It was a great surprise (I'm sure until now there's plenty people that haven't watched this show yet because they don't believe that "card game" premise could developed so well).

Oh, btw, the way Arata and Taichi were talking like bros on the phone was cool, motivating Taichi even to go Sudo-sadist on Chihaya! Funny, but yeah, with Kana saying her dream to be a reader, look at that, they did not even tried to hide we're halfway the story with this many sequel hooks, I didn't notice if a season 2 was announced yet but with a finale like that it almost seems it was! And I hope it will! xP

Vey cool anime to me and it introduced me to a game I've never seen before and I found it pretty interesting. Sort of like a Hikaru no Go kind of feeling.

Chihaya and the rest of the crew were detailed pretty well and you got to know everyone through those intense Karuta games/practices.

The OP and ED I enjoyed for the series. This show was def one of my favorites this season.

I really do hope they make a 2nd season! I found this series to be a refreshing change from what I normally watch. I really really really want to see more of Taichi x Chihaya. I got all excited when they went up in Taichi's room alone, oh well.. Hoping for more.

Overall, I gave this season a 8/10.

It was cool to see the teacher backup the Karuta club considering she was so against it within the first few episodes. :p

It was also cool how they used the scene from the first episode to end the series. I guess the whole series was just a flashback after all... lol... :D

Overall, awesome series, I really enjoyed it! I didn't think I would get into it but Karuta was more interesting than I thought. Really hoping for a second season considering they left it open for another one. (basically hinting it) xD

i need 2nd season soooooooooooooo much!!! OH MY GOD one of the best josei anime ever!!! All the character are so unique and interesting especially my lovely QUEEN Shinobu!! Awww <333

I want to see what happens next... I wonder why this anime is soooooooooo unpopular in japan.. is it really because this was shown late night, so the only people who can watch this is an otaku, and i heard that otaku in japan can't appreciate good show with smart and engaging plot with no fanservice in it, so it isn't popular there... :( :( :(

i have a feeling that this show will be like Fruits Basket, a really good Shoujo/Josei anime, that everyone sure will get a 2nd season but it never happened.... :(

It some ways he as an abrupt ending. In other ways it seemed alright. I liked how it started where it ended.
It still seems incomplete, though, so I hope they make another season.

So sad that they set this up perfectly for a second season that will never come.

If only Japan had good taste and bought shit worth buying instead of ecchi incest loli junk.

10/10 and definitely potential at being best series of 2012.

I really liked this series, I gave it a 10/10. It had so many heartwarming moments in it. Didn't really feel Arata as a main character but everyone else was really good. I kinda wished they had won more games towards the end. But oh well, I enjoyed the journey ^^.

Just had to post this.

When I last checked a while back, the anime was #300 something and I thought it was totally underrated. Just checked again. #82!!!

Just gotta love Chihayafuru!!

Finished the show in a week and a half... I enjoyed it so much. Please let there be a second season as there are just too many loose ends that need to be addressed.

An incomplete series with an anticlimactic ending. It's lovely; it's eye candy; it's ear candy; but still, it's nothing! No resolutions to our lovely triangle, no resolutions to their karuta careers, only a gang of half-beatup fighters still chasing their dreams.

If there isn't a second season, I'll be sorely disappointed.

Was hilarious at end. there she is!
NEETs (No Employment Education Training) are the least desirable people anybody would want to hire and yet they are the first choice to become moderators/admins around the internet. They have yet to have established a sense of responsibility or role in society and many are plain leeches (with minor exceptions). They are given "authority" to police sections of the internet with the powers of The Judge, Jury, and Executioner. Isn't that weird?
