O my O my O my O my , WOW chihayafuru second season wow in 1/2013 I didn't expect it to be this soon since the manga is advancing pretty fast I CAN'T WAIT THIS IS AMAZING NOW THAT I KNOW THAT IS COMING SOON IS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT CONCENTRATING ON ANOTHER ANIME OR MANGA

and For those people that said and thought that the second season wasn't going to come out I wasn't confused I just had to be patient because chihayafuru ending was incomplete I totally knew that there was going to be a second season I'M JUST SORRY FOR THE PEOPLE THAT COULDN'T WAIT AND SAW THE MANGA BECAUSE NOW THE SECOND SEASON IS GOING TO GET SPOILED I DIDN'T EVEN WATCHED THE MANGA AND WAITED WELL

One of the best anime of all time getting a second series? There is justice in this world! After all, Bakuman has 3 series' and counting, and that's borderline garbage! I was so worried that Chihayafuru would pull a School Rumble on us. I'm so psyched! :D

I find it ironic. The only reason as to why I watched season 1 was boredom. But now season 2 is one of my most waited series!

What a 180 degree turn of opinion!

I've only just started watching the 1st season and I'm already excited for a 2nd! The show is just that good. My eyes are peeled for Season 2!

Your missing the point, if they want to drive home that this so called game is actually "sport" then it needs to present it as such, By showing how psychically demanding it is and how much skill it takes.

shoving in little kids, house wives and old men as having enough ability to compete at the top tier of this sport undermines all that. It;s fucking conflicting when we see Chihaya and her team working their ass off at this sport, then all of a sudden they are nearly beat by a child who probably just got out of diapers last week.

Ever heard of Bobby Fischer? Child prodigies do exist. And considering that the Olympic committee was giving consideration of chess being made an Olympic sport there is no question that chess is a sport. And if chess is a sport then karuta isn't far off. After all, karuta relies on much more physical exertion and prowess than chess does after all.

I'd say that the anime did a very good job showing how much skill karuta takes by showing the enormous skill gap between new and veteran players.
You just got served!

This is gonna be legen - wait for it - DARY.

I started reading the manga after watching the 1st season. But it might be the case that I won't remember what happened in the chapters that are gonna be animated when the time comes...

Is there any information on when the series will be broadcast on TV?

Jul 24, 2012 2:52 PM by Zetchan

I remember being disheartened by people constantly saying that a second season would not happen due to poor sales, etc. I guess miracles do happen!

It made my day to hear this news. I only hope that the second season will live up to the standard set by the first season.
