Storyline

Chihaya Ayase is a girl who has spent most of her life simply supporting her sister in her model career. That changes when she meets a boy named Arata Wataya, a talented karuta player. He thinks that Chihaya has a potential to become a great player. As Chihaya takes on a new dream of becoming Japan's best karuta player, she is soon separated from her karuta playing friends as they grow up. Now in high school, Chihaya still continues to play karuta in the hope that she will one day meet her friends again. Written by Devesh

Great Anime
30 May 2020 | by CartoonMan2020See all my reviews

Great, traditional and compelling story. Good animation and voice acting. Addictive to watch. Raises the bar for anime, which is badly needed. It's not loaded with the usual annoying anime cliches. It reminds me of the works of Hayao Miyazaki; simple yet brilliantly done.
