At the same time, Chihaya discovers a passion for the old Japanese game hyakunin ishhu, also called "karuta".

I just finished watching episode one of this, and I've gotta say I'm a lot more into it than I thought I would be. Definitely a series to look out for this season.

This is one of Crunchyroll's new shows this season, so I decided to give it a try and was actually quite pleased. This show seems interesting, and I'll follow it for now.

I downloaded it a while back without knowing what it was. I'll check it out later.

Anyway, really enjoyed episode two. Taichi is a total doucherocket, but I mean at least he lost :v

I support Wataru. He's got initiative, doesn't pick fights, and understands that laundry is a pain and that pants can be worn more than once.

Ep 3 is out and subbed.

IMO, definitely the most surprising anime of the season. Enjoyed this episode, I think the backstory should be over with this one. Looking forward to next week.

Eden 10-18-2011 11:17 PM

Goddamn, childhood parting is always sad ;_;

Joey 10-25-2011 07:52 PM

Ep 4 is out and subbed.

Welp, Chihaya super good at karuta, Taichi all impressed, Wataya ****ING JERK. The end.

Joey 11-15-2011 03:21 PM

Ep 7 is out and subbed.

Okay so basically, Taichi sucks at karuta but he's smarter than Chihaya, so he can beat her when the cards are flipped over. Looking forward to next week's episode.

Finished watching episode 7.

I don't get how desktomu resembles a jelly bean lol, maybe a piggy because of his button nose.
Anyways, good ep. and love the OP<3

Ep 8 is out and subbed, and Nikuman-kun is totally the best character. His rage satisfies my heart :v

Almora 11-22-2011 06:00 PM

Finished watching ep.8

Omg, totally forgot about Porky-kun! Now the club's complete, must wait for Arata to return, miss him a lot :<

Almora 11-29-2011 06:51 PM

Finished watching ep.9

I think the little name calling in the beginning was cute :3
I swear, I even counted; Porky ate like 5 times during the episode xD.

-fangirl moment- @The text from Arata and Taichi getting jealous. Really looking forward to the triangle development in further episodes :d.

Joey 11-29-2011 06:54 PM

Mon visage when Chihaya started to cry. Dem eyes, they were so cute. Definitely looking forward to next week's episode.

Eden 11-29-2011 07:05 PM

Oh, poor Taichi.

Joey 12-06-2011 12:09 PM

Ep 10 is out and subbed.

Okay so basically Nishida talks a massive amount of shit, and then Komano flips the **** out. The end. Looking forward to the end of the tournament next episode, though.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 07:30 AM.
