Chihayafuru : 13

KYAAAAAAAAA~~!!! Finally got to watch episode 13 ! So the competition started for chihaya and gang. And with the series half way through, i’m wondering how will the ending be like ? I shouldn’t have marathon 12 episodes the other time. >..< . But I’m looking forward to the relationship triangle between arata, chihaya and whats-his-name-again? develops further. I hope the focus will shift into the people rather than the card game. XD

Chihayafuru : 1 – 12

Chihayafuru… I LOVE THIS ANIME. I love it that it is a shoujo and it has shounen elements in it. Did i mention I love Shoujo?

This anime feels like a condense version of the things i love in other shoujo anime. First off you have a beautiful lead character, Chihaya. Then you give her flaws yet at the same time, this flaws suit her so much it becomes her charms. Next, you mix in 2 guys who are equally strong in character and to top if off, Childhood friends.

I would be bluffing if i said i dont like the childhood friends idea but i think maybe it is used too often?. But i guess for an anime like this, you need some background history and since the characters are like 16 years old, childhood is the only history you can make up. Unless Chihaya is like 30 or something then you could use high school as a background.

well like i tweeted out earlier ,

Despite being a shoujo anime, the card game scenes are intense as hell. It really puts anime like Yugioh into shame. If you compare the card battles, the pure shounen Yugioh isn’t really as exciting as Chihayafuru. Don’t get me wrong, i like yugioh but come on, this shoujo is more exciting and intense than a shounen? Granted there’s no Dark magician or blue eyes white dragon animation but goddamnit, SHOUJO CARD FIGHTS ARE AWESOME. Also it helps to have someone as kawaii as chihaya-chan ❤ ! I love you Chihaya~~~ I am officially fan-boying over you~~~~~~ !!!!!!!

AHHHH i wouldn’t mind buying a Chihaya 2012 calender if it exists.

I like how the storyline builds up from episode 1 to episode 12. There isn’t an episode where i find it boring. Of course crossing my fingers and i hope the next 13 episodes wouldn’t be boring at all as well.

Having said that, i can’t wait for more Chihayafuru. Did i mention this is the best shoujo of 2011? If i haven’t, I AM DOING IT NOW.

I need to make a chihaya-chan only post as well. So many wonderful screen caps of her ^^.
