Didn't start the anime expecting much, but it's now one of my top anime, even though I've only watched 2 episodes so far. It's really exciting when they play karuta. XD

Not sure if I'm the only one to notice this, but does this anime contain a certain marijuana theme or did they just decide to decorate this animes picture poster with weed for fun? Lol

...Not quite.

They actually look almost the same, good job clearing that up xD

I'll more than likely be checking this out, since I'm a fan of Josei.

Josei = definite watch for me.

Josei, Game, sports, drama = high expectations.

Looking very much forward to this!

Oh, I was planning on reading this manga.

Well, if it won the Kodansha award, it's definitely watch-worthy. Was going to read the manga eventually, but I guess I'll watch the anime first and continue where it leaves off. Hopefully, a good studio does it.

Words cannot express how happy I am. Hopefully this translates into some exposure for the manga and the possibility of faster chapters releases.
