Publisher Description

Chihaya is a girl in the sixth grade, still not old enough to even know the meaning of the word zeal. But one day, she meets Arata, a transfer student from rural Fukui prefecture. Though docile and quiet, he has an unexpected skill: his ability to play competitive karuta, a traditional Japanese card game. Chihaya is struck by his obsession with the game, along with his ability to pick out the right card and swipe it away before any of his opponents. However, Arata is transfixed by her as well, all because of her unbelievable natural talent for the game. Don't miss the first volume in this story of adolescent lives and emotions playing out in the most dramatic of ways.

Attractive art, great characters, interesting plot

The wonderful anime series based on this is one of my favorite ever but the manga adds new detail and more in-depth story. If someone told me that a manga/anime about card-playing is intoxicating I’d laugh but not after seeing/reading this. Magnificent drama and humor tinged with romance set the stage for a heart-pounding, action-packed series about tournament-level Karuta.

A little difficult to get used to the translation

5 stars for Chihayafuru because it’s a wonderful story, but it’s a bit difficult to get used to the translations used for Arata’s dialogue. It doesn’t seem right to treat Japanese dialects and accents in the same way you would English accents, because Asian dialects and accents have distinct traits which are very different from English… Also, those who watched Chihayafuru the anime with English subtitles will have a hard time because the poems are translated differently than the anime.
