First Episode Review for: Chihayafuru
Summary : The story of a beautiful but unconventional and therefore unpopular girl who is obsessed with a card game called Karuta and her search for other people to play it with
Animation : Nice and bright with a slight haze overtone pleasant to watch
Plot Potential: I don’t know if this is going to be like Yu-Gi-Oh! or if the game it just a link for the characters, but it was a good mix in the first episode
Characters: Very good and original characters with lots of depth and background even in only one episode
Music: Light background music
Reminds me of: A more solemn version of Yakitate!!
Overall: A surprising anime, and one that makes me want to actually play the card game, ill be watch this from now on.
