If you haven’t watched the two seasons of Chihayafuru yet, you’re missing out on one of the best sports anime series of the last decade. I only came to it halfway through the first season, but as soon as I watched those first episodes, I was hooked, and now eagerly awaiting a third season so we can continue following the adventures of Chihaya and her karuta crew. This OVA (Saizen’s first involvement with Chihayafuru) was released on DVD back in September and I… stalled it a little >.> But it’s worth watching if you haven’t seen it yet, even if there isn’t actually any karuta in it. It’s the Hanano show throughout and it gives us a bit more of a glimpse into her character, as she’s often overlooked in favour of the karuta freaks who populate the series. Anyway, I enjoyed working on it even if it was at a snail’s pace (:D) and I hope the handful of people who download this do too!
P.S. Oe-senpai = best girl 😉

Best way for things to be released: me staying off IRC 🙂 Chihayafuru is indeed a must-watch anime!
Thank you very much! One of the best shows in a long time, in my opinion. I’m also hoping another season is forthcoming soon, there is more than enough material to adapt another season and there’s some good stuff that happens after season 2.
Also good taste confirmed as Oe is indeed best girl.
so which subs to watch if I decide to watch the two seasons?
Commie, or Zurako’s BD version for the first season (uses Commie’s subs).
Or just watch it on CR. If the comments from one of Commie’s staff members are anything to go by, they don’t change a great deal if the CR scripts are already good (and the Chihayafuru ones were).
And yeah, hopefully Japan will see sense and make a third season 😀
