Anime Description

Anime: Chihayafuru
Chihaya Ayase is a frank and ebullient girl who becomes fascinated by the obscure world of competitive karuta, a card game based on Japanese poetry. Introduced to the aggressive style of the game by a quiet and thoughtful elementary school classmate named Arata Wataya, the two quickly become close friends. They start playing as a group with Taichi Mashima, Chihaya's smart and athletic childhood friend, until they have to part ways during their middle school years due to several circumstances. As their high school life begins, they meet once again.

Anime Reviews

Avatar: simo.cocu#1
La forza di quest'opera sta, a mio avviso, nel non fermarsi esclusivamente su un genere; il romanticismo è sicuramente presente, e riesce a toccare nell'anima, grazie soprattutto alla figura commovente e tenera di Taichi (nonché mio personaggio preferito). Tuttavia, si tenta di andare oltre, costruendovi dietro una trama forte e intrigante, molto dinamica per un anime tendenzialmente sentimentale. I personaggi posseggono una psicologia ben costruita e anche la protagonista di turno riesce a esprimere dei sentimenti complessi e in continua evoluzione.
