Chihayafuru

Finished episode one, not bad. Although this might be seen as a girly anime by some, I actually think it’s pretty amusing. It’s very interesting to see, and that’s one of the most important things in the anime/manga world, that it’s interesting for the public.

The artwork is good, very good indeed. I just like how they’ve drawn this; it’s very easy on the eyes. As for the story, well… It’s definitely unique. I think it has serious potential.

One thing confuses me though. One anime information site says that this anime has twelve episodes and others say twenty-five, which is it? Guess there’s only one way to find out.

Plot Summary: Chihaya is a lighthearted tomboy, who’s not especially good at anything in particular. Her dream has always been for her sister (an aspiring model) to become the number one beauty of Japan, or perhaps of the world. But then one day she meets someone who tells her that a dream is something that should concern only herself – and something she has to work hard for as well.

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