I'm guessing that the guy who joined the club will be strong as Chihaya.

Great first episode, the art is fascinating and OP & ED is great.

Seems ok, but so far it's off to a rocky start, not really caring for the generic character-types, but it's to be expected from the first episode

This show is just too good.

Taichi is one of the best leads in a series! His character is so well written and hes such a complex character!

Nice episode! It looks like season 2 has begun with a good start!

Today is finally the big day for this anime series, I also waited enough.
The return must say it is quite painless, I find the same atmosphere and the same characters as before, not only picks up where you left off, but immediately goes on with the storyline.
Chihaya starts to feel that the group is not all roses, is that there are different priority by all, but without the problems she faced in her own way. With an original timing.
Drawings and animations identical to the past, perhaps the Madhouse should, however, improve the quality of the designs.
The final part is so romantic that I seemed to melt, feeling the dialogues of Taichi, not bad ones Sumire.
For now, the rating I give the anime is 7/10!

I like the first OP and ED of Chihayafuru a bit more.

Only 1 guy from like the 22 or so who joined the club, the rest were girls. He seems like he might stay in the club.

Sumire was a bit annoying but she's quite interesting.

LOL at Chihaya, come on go easy on the first years. 3 vs 1 handicap match and Chihaya is going CHIHAYA MODE on the 3 girls at the end.

Sumire is kinda annoying. Love the new OP and ED (beautiful).

The club grows in size + some love triangle - decent start of a new season.

berserk-chan said:
Taichi and Sumire = love? Noooo, please don't do this! This way Chihaya will certainly be with Arata and that's almost like a spoiler in the 1st episode.

Not really a spoiler. Doesn't anime isn't about shipping, it doesn't even have a romance tag.

The freshmen clearly didn't give a dam about Karuta so I can see why no one else really gave a dam about them lol.

I think first few episodes will be introductory episodes of new members. I don't like Sumure particularly but not bad though. And once again Arata and his accent are missing. Hope we will be able to see him in near future.

Chihayafuru .. SEASON 2 , Second Year <3 !!! KARUTA is the SPIRIT .
New OPs rocks as always ~ !! The club itself is promising .
It's not that it's complicated but it relies on what can you do to make it easy .
Plus , You cannot expect everyone , at the very least , be competitive too .
VERY Great Episode ~ !!! Well , Josei much and priorities .
Too Sensitive , Too hopeful . Don't dream to high girl ~ .
Ayase hasn't grown up but .. she changed a bit ~ . Taichi is cool as ever ~ .

I was kinda expecting that all new members are girls that only want Taichi as boyfriend
But that was really many of them
Well they'll start dropping like flies though

She's way too greedy, far more greedy than season 1
But that what makes her so special :D

Bullying her Kouhai? xD

Sumire is a bit annoying, but if she manages to get Taichi off Chiha's back I will be happy.

The first episode is the one episode where they try their hardest to hook into a viewer and convince them that it is worth pursuing.

A lot of low funded anime series will have a drop in animation quality, and plot progression afterwards, not out of laziness but because they hyped it and were 'disingenuous' from the start.

Sometimes the first episode is the perfect demonstration of what the rest of the show will be like e.g. Cowboy Bebop.

However... for a highly popular series like Chiharafuru with decent volume sales, the first episode more likely than not is more accurate in my opinion.

I can tell, the second season will be diving deep into josei romance, I can't say I am very pleased with that. But I will still finish the series as I like watching the characters develop their Karuta and I am interested in seeing Arata and Taichi fight it out in the finals tournament. I am going to assume they will meet there, there is no better place.

Great start,the recruiting was a huge success. And Chihaya has ambitious goals for this new year.

I'm also really interested to see what kind of development Sumire will go through.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

So happy to start in on the second season of this show and see it get off to a strong start. Sumire seems like she will be a fun addition to the group eso as a foil for Chihaya in terms of Taichi's affections. Loved seeing everyone falling in love with Chihaya at the assembly - until she opens her mouth haha.

Great episode ! I love the way Chihaya persuades her juniors to join her club . Chihaya is not greedy ,she is just too ambitious. Kana chan is showing good leadership , and I love Sumire’s character.

It was clear to us from the start, but damn did it become really clear to Sumire the distance between her and Taichi. Ouch...

Refreshing to see the new batch of first years, it's clear most of them will be kicked out. I wonder if the club will face any repercussions for only having 2 new members.

Chihaya has some extreme ambitions. I can't imagine that they'll all even possible...
