By on Apr 8, 2015 in Issue 10 | 0 comments

Chihayafuru is an anime that follows the story of Chihaya Ayase, a girl who has spent most of her life simply supporting her sister in her model career. When she meets the boy Arata Wataya, a talented karuta player, she decides to take on the game competitively with the aim of becoming the best player in Japan.

Karuta is a Japanese card game where each player must try and capture the required card from the spoken phrase before their opponent. The anime follows her story as she starts with just her passion, forms a group of friends to play with, and faces both victories and defeats. It is both exhilarating to watch, tense at times, emotional at others, and takes you on a roller coaster ride from beginning to end…
