‘Chihayafuru’ Anime Set For Winter 2013 Schedule

2 min read

One of the more interesting and critically acclaimed series from the fall to winter season last year was that of Chihayafuru, which left us on a fair bit of a cliffhanger wanting more. We learned previously that another season of the series was going to come, but nothing was nailed down on it until now. After getting announced in June, it looks like January will be the time to look for more adventures with this karata club and hteir hopes of winning the nationals. The cast and production team is expected to return for it with some of the usual mild turnover in some positions. The 18th volume of the manga was just released while the first season ran for twenty-five episodes, covering a good bit of that material.

Season 1 Concept: Ayase Chihaya is a sixth grader whose dream is for her older sister to become the top model in Japan.

But one day, a transfer student, Wataya Arata, tells her that her dream should be about herself. Arata’s dream is to become a famous competitive Karuta player. Chihaya is somewhat shocked when she sees how intense the normally reserved Arata gets about the card game. Eventually, she and her childhood friend Mashima Taichi find themselves being captivated by Karuta. Arata is thrilled by Chihaya’s talent and extraordinary hearing, as well as the fact that he has friends to play Karuta with now, but they are forced to go their separate ways after graduating from grade school.

Four years later, Chihaya enters high school and discovers that Arata, who returned to Fukui, no longer plays Karuta. However, she believes that if she continues to play, they will one day be reunited. And so, she and Taichi start a Karuta club at Mizusawa High School.
