The art. The art in both anime is just beautiful. It's stunning really. The characters are refreshing. Both anime have a strong female lead looking for a goal to reach. The supporting characters are also written really well. They are both heartfelt touching stories with a hint of love in it.

Two series that focus on some of the more traditional side of Japan, Karuta in Chihayafuru and running a traditional inn in Hanasaku. Both show clear slice of life elements and and quite light to watch, if you enjoyed the characters and exploration of the more traditional side of one of these anime then I would recommend the other xx
