There will never be a third season of Chihayafuru.
The manga's still going.
Of course there will be.
You just have to wait for the manga to progress far enough.
Chihaya sell, and madhouse know that pretty well.
When enough chapters will be released we will see a third season; i mean the great tournament it's still being held in the manga.
There will be a third series. Just probably not this year.
There will be a third series... and it will have even less animated Haruta than the second one.
Madhouse hates 3rd seasons
From the look of it they need to finish this tournament to make a third series.
Madhouse also used to hate 2nd seasons.
The anime sells, the manga too and the anime is funded by the karuta association. So is just a matter of time for the 3rd season
They hate them so much Ippo got one.
>the anime is funded by the karuta association
Yes there will be.
I almost wish it hadn't. From the couple of episodes I saw Rising is pretty awful.
yeah and have fund from the gov too, is one of the few anime that actually promote culture and a classic game like karuta and the poems
Is the manga translated up to date or is it yet another manga I'm waiting for someone to translate alot of stuff for? It seems like a while since I last saw a new update.
You know what it is.
The manga is translated since around the point when S2 ends but has tons of untranslated chapters covering the previous arcs. Chihayafuru gained popularity with the anime adaptation and nobody seems to want to bother with translating what they have already seen.
That is pretty amazing.
Why Chihaya sister is such a slut?
For some reason I love that illustration.
because is the scapegoat when chihaya end with arata, Taichi need end with someone
Why wouldn't Chihayafuru get another season, please explain, my heart can't take it.
Isn't eyebrows there for that?
There was too little interaction between the two in the anime. Felt like they skipped tons of stuff.
The staff surely would hate making a season 3
How much will Taichi suffer in S3?
eyebrown is gonna end with Tsukuba
Stop it. Please.
Taichi is a prick, hope he wins nobody, he doesn't even deserve that one girl that lusts after him
>mfw Ta-kun wins da Chihayafuru
>episode when she gets sick and there is really important photo session
>Chihaya go in her place
I want filler like this.
Also, Japan doesn't like good stuff.
>yfw the meijin win the chihayafuru
Sure there will be.
More like she stays at home because Chihaya is sick. That would be more fun.
That's what makes him human and more popular than Arata.
i just want to see more cellphone NTR
Are you saying Arata never went through anything? He quit for a while because of complications. Arata isn't a prick like Taichi, he plays fair in everything.
he is a dirty player in karuta, everyone say that just like the eternal meijin
Yeah, it was really nice of him to kick the cards around and telling Chihaya and Taichi to get the fuck out of his house.
He's still not as bad as Taichi
You have to be patient, they need more source material to begin with.
Chihaya x Sudo otp
The point is, Taichi is actually likable and had screen time. Arata is like a plot device and not like a character.
Not him, but I honestly felt like both Taichi and Arata have their ups. They both started out as generic characters but both developed a lot. The characterization is pretty good in Chihayfuru in general.
With who chihayafuru you would play karuta?
Arata has characterization, what are you trying to say, a lot of screen time builds character?
I want to play karuta with Chihaya and discover my burning passion for it with her. I'm sure she'd be overjoyed to teach me.
Who cares if Taichi can be a little moody, he's the prettiest. Dat pink hair, dem long eyelashes, dat delicious voice.
His smile is a miracle of the universe and his pained NTR'd look makes my heart throb.
>are you trying to say, a lot of screen time builds character?
>Hello, I'm Anonymous and I've never watched a harem!
In return you'd teach her the D.
There are different ways to build character. Having the character gone for a long amount of time gives the mystery feeling to it along with what Chihaya and co already think about him and see how he's changed.
>There will never be a third season of POPULAR SPORTS ANIME
I wouldn't be so sure.
I miss seeing that every thread.. Good times..
Even though he is voiced by Miyano, Taichi is still a shit and Arata has that delicious accent.
Stop dissing Taichi, he already lost.
Why does she look like she has the downs?
>mfw I've been watching Hikaru no Go because someone mentioned it in another Chihaya thread
My God, that shit is good.
Prepare to have your soul crushed like an unwanted receipt.
with my waifu
I shouldn't really bring waifu faggotry here should I?
When are gonna get the traduction of the LN of chihayafuru?
Hikaru no Go is one of my favorite anime because of how far back it takes me. Chihayafuru DEFINITELY made me feel super nostalgic about it. In fact, I ended up rewatching Hikaru no Go after Chihayafuru's second season ended. Good stuff indeed.
Isn't the source a manga?
yeah but the author release 3 or 4 LN the last year about the chihaya, arata and taichi in the middle school.
Why is Chihaya so beautiful?
is those eyes and her hair colour
girls are more demanding with their self-inserts than guys
Those off-centered pupils.
Chihaya is the best.
It's the sexhair.
Holy shit. He really said it, huh.
Time to catch up on the manga.
I just recently started watching and I don't get it.
Why are all the guys in school not interested in her? Shouldn't the club be full with guys trying to score?
She's the school beauty. But she's also simple-minded. She has one thing on her mind and that's Karuta. As a kid, it was to show off her sister.
Were you reading threads while watching the first episode?
She's too loud and pushy for them.
It's a josei. Males here don't work like that.
Female readers like to fantasize they're beautiful but it just happen their personalities or something make the boys go away
Don't generalize josei. Less than half of the series are translated or see less than four chapters a year.
That is the Queen
Taichi best girl
this anime is more realistic, japanase guys are to beta for that, and taichi is his protective dog in the school
It's like you didn't watch the first minute of episode 1.
i think is because the eyes, lips and the genki personality
Chitose > Queen > Sumire > Kanade > Chihaya
Queen>Chihaya>Kanade>Sumire>Chitose>Arata's childhood friend>Nikuman sister
Well you just gave me another reason to learn moon. I need to start asap.
she smokes she pokes
You can't have sex with her because she's playing karuta with Taichi. Taichi can't have sex with her because she's playing karuta with Arata. Arata lives far away.
>Chihaya that low
Where's the Chihaya love?
Why is this show so cute?
Don't stop believing, bro.
Arata is cool too I guess.
Get that shit out of here.
I thought the anime sells like utter shit? It gets very good ratings though, and the manga sells like hotcakes. AFAIK that was the reason why Basedhouse got sponsored by a TV channel or something, because it promotes muh culture pretty well on and off the TV screen.
Nothing indicates that there won't a third season, there are no announcements or anything yet though because there's not enough material to adapt at this point.
Also I'd really love to play Karuta IRL, too bad the game most probably will never get popular outside of Japan.
Last I saw, the DVD numbers were low, but it's selling the manga nicely.
And Chinese love Karuta. One of them was awarded just recently.
And yes, she owns the manga.
Yeah the sales are low but tons of people watch the show and buy the manga. Buying the anime is expensive, even with the reduced price they made for Chihayafuru.
The bit about the Chinese Karuta player is pretty cool, I'd like to see the mango bring the game to the west.
Chihaya looks so good in her karuta uniform.
Kana is right when she says kimonos are awesome.
>Taichi vs Arata
Could be worse. Pork-bun is ranked lower than both Snow-maru and Daddy-bear.
At least the latest manga chapters are starting to move the Desk-kun x Kanade pairing forward
What did he do to deserve this suffering.
I honestly did not even notice her tits until they were brought up in the recap episode in season 1.
He seems more chaotic neutral though.
Probably because she's average compared to most unrealistic animu.
One of the worst things that happened to Japan due to westernization was the disappearance of traditional clothing fro common life.
Nothing made by the west comes close to the beauty of grill' kimonos.
So which was the better game anime, Chihayafuru or Hikaru no Go? Why?
Sudo wins, again!
I totally agree.
And sadly it's even more declining lately. Apparently the coming of age ceremonies get less and less attendance for example. So I really enjoy Chihaya for that, among cultural festivals in others shows.
A shame, really.
>that scene where Sai leaves
>those subsequent chapters where Hikaru rushes around desperately trying to find him again
still hurts, man
also she shares her sister's genes
I hope we'll never get S3, I don't want to see him suffer again.
Both seasons of Chihayafuru sold well enough for Josei series(3k Box Set S2 for example) but as has been said multiple times this series is "successful" through the increased exposure to Karuta and the increased manga sales/TV ratings
Taichifags are pathetic. The guy is nothing but a coward who treats Chihaya like an object.
I dislike him simply because he's been by her side for two years and made less progress than the autist on the other side of the country, I have nothing against him because of muh bully or some shit, but damn, he had all the time in the world to make a move and now its passing him by.
Alas, there's no point in him "mak[ing] a move" because Chihaya is clearly not interested in him. She is probably not interested in anyone at all romantically, although her obsession with Arata could probably really easily turn to romance if she was in the same room as him for more than five minutes.
Since the anime is funded by the government and NTV backs it up, what matters is the viewer rating and not the disc sales.
That's why other anime produced by NTV which had good tv ratings, Gatchaman Crowds, got a season 2 before the anime's disc release
Taichi is suffering, but he had the time to help her grow to a point she might consider romance or get her to fall for him, even if its some underhanded engineering with misunderstandings, I'd like him more for that than sitting on his ass and crying all the time. Arata wins just for having the balls to try when he knows he might fail.
Taichi knows Chihaya would rather focus on karuta and relationship drama would just be a distraction.
Shit adaption. Biased as fuck staff cuts/shortens as many Arata scenes as they can. I bet the director will cry when he has to animate Arata confessing
Cry more Aratafag.
I think that's a excuse he uses for his cowardice more than anything, remember he liked her before karuta entered their lives, I'm sure he wouldn't mind taking her away from karuta if he could, in fact I think thats what he tried in early season 1...
I'm sure it's an excuse, however it's true at the same time.
Taichi liking her before karuta is anime filler
I'm actually more interested in seeing Taichi beat Arata's ass at card games than in the Chihayabowl.
This, I wouldn't care if Arata got Chihaya but Taichi became Meijin
Meijin Suou is Chihaya's husband now.
>Not worthy mentioning
But I love his bitchy personality...
More Taichi suffering pls.
Someone should make a Magi X Chihaya crossover with Alibaba and Taichi.
If LoGH gets a remake there is hope for all anime.
That hope should take the form of a third season for Akagi and Kaiji, since Chihaya already is pretty much guaranteed for it.
I want more Akagi so bad.
It's also really fucking expensive to own a real kimono. It's basically the equivalent of western women's wedding dresses with costing thousands of dollars and woman only for special occasions. So only super old Japanese ladies still wear kimonos on a daily basis (like that one member of CLAMP who's always seen in a kimono)
People still wear yukatas during the summer at least.
I'm surprised the anime staff is so biased too. But I guess that wouldn't be the first time, but it's just a shame that an adaptation gets skewed from the original author's work just cause a director loves a certain character more.
>>102090241 was probably just lazily using "kimono" to mean traditional Japanese clothing, including yukata.
You can always read it.
By "real" I'm assuming you mean kimonos made entirely of expensive fabrics have other features that make them ridiculously expensive, alongside expert handmade tailoring.
Well, yukata is a kimono. No distinction is required to be made unless talking specifically about yukatas.
Yeah it's very expensive.
After that, there's still "normal", less expensive, kimonos for everyday use, but pretty much nobody wear them anymore.
Yukatas are kimonos.
Just different uses.
Yeah but you have to admit that Fukumoto mango become even better when animated.
Although Akagi should have had a couple more episodes to give closure to the Akagi-Osamu broship with that mini-arc.
>Well, yukata is a kimono.
It's not though, they're two totally different piece of clothing. Kimono is formal wear, especially made of expensive/well made fabric. Yukatas were originally used to wear after a bath; basically a robe before being adopted to what they are today. It's like saying a t-shirt and a button down dress shirt are the "same."
>A yukata (浴衣) is a Japanese garment, a casual summer kimono usually made of cotton or synthetic fabric, and unlined.
OK so this is wikipedia, but if you have a source explaining it in a different way feel free to post, I'd like to read.
>The name "yukata" comes from the word "Yu" (bath) and "Katabira" (under-clothing). Thousands of years ago, Court Nobles wore linen "Yukatabira" which were draped loosely after taking a bath. It gradually became worn by japanese warriors and then by the general public when the sophisticated japanese public bath became popular. Today, the traditional japanese yukata are widely used for everything from dances, casual wear in the summer, to simple night attire.
Just google yukata history and you'll get more stuff.
Nah it's a kimono.
Different type, but still a kimono.
YUKATA IS NOT KIMONO. How hard is it to wrap around your head they're not the same things? They might look similar to you, but in history, use and Japanese society, they couldn't be more different.
Why is she such a slut?
Sakuya Kono Hana
Ima wo haru-be to
Sakuya kono hana~~~~
This has a little more info.
It´s just a different name.
Like these wedding komonos, but they still has a specific name.
So it's a type of kimono. I mean the other link has "kimono_history" before yukata. How can they be unrelated?
Who cares? There are better sports anime.
>the most popular josei title since nodame/honey and clover
>anime sells well
>manga sells exceeding well
>2nd season ended on a "wait for next season"
>seriously thinking there wont be a s3
>there will never be a second season of Tatami Galaxy
I'm perfectly fine with that. Fucking Basedhouse!
We need to hype Chihayafuru, dammit.
Ah yes, that crappy OP combined with that retard Good Deeds is what ruined s2 threads.
They're really not related though. Sure, they're same similar types of clothing (robe type that wrap around your body so maybe yukatas were inspired by kimono) but kimonos were always meant to be daily to formal type wear in pre-Meiji Restoration and yukatas started off as only bath wear. They weren't supposed to be worn in public as a clothing substitute, but now they are.
Still, if you're talking about "kimonos" as a catch all, people will assume you're talking of the traditional formal wear. They won't assume you mean yukata too, cause yukata isn't a kimono.
Good deeds was okay...
Yeah, they have a way different usage, but they are in the same "category".
They have also different accessories and all. It's true the higher kimonos are really expensives, but there's everyday kimonos as weall, cheaper.
It's still a shame there's less and less of them, and it's slowly fading, I just love these outfits.
I also like the footwear as well.
Well it's kinda complicated to wear a kimono too, even a woman's yukata. I'm gonna guess most people don't get the chance to properly learn how wear a kimono these days, it can take a long time to put one one as well (especially if you try to do it by yourself)
But yeah, it's a shame. At least Japanese fashion these days still has it's odd weirdness.
Enka is also still really popular which is as Japanese as it gets.
Japanese footwear is breddy gud. Especially the waraji which they pretty much used on all weather and terrain conditions despite its simplicity, samurai going to war had come up with specific ways to tie the sandals so as to limit mud sticking in and making it easier to get rid of the mud for example. I want to buy one if I ever get the chance.
Kill yourself, please.
Yeah, the basic kimonos can be done alone, but the better stuff need help. So it makes everything harder.
I don't like modern japanese fashion i mist say.
What is Enka ?
Yeah they're good indeed.
I'm a big fan of tabi socks I must say even better with sandals.
This is enka
How much more Chihaya and Queen interaction has the manga had?
They seemed to have an actual start to a rivalry in the tournament where her hand was hurt.
That's not bad at all.
Especially when I have a big aversion in general for japanese music.
Not a whole lot so far, since Chihaya didn't take part in the Queen's qualifiers (she chose to go on her class trip instead - due to requirements based on her college career choices), and the story now is in the Queen/Meiji finals.
On the other hand, she's been interacting a great deal with Suo, the current Meiji
>big aversion in general for japanese music.
You don't listen to based Takuro Yoshida in year of our lord 2014?
I don't, I'll give it a shot though, I'm alaways open for new things.
Go watch Cromartie High School whille you're at it. Thank me later.
>yfw Suo wins the Chihayab owl
Just wanted to tell you this
Special short comic about Valentine Day? In my Chihayafuru?
Why is Chihaya so shit compared to the goddess that is Snowmaru?
People disliked the s2 OP? Granted, it wasn't as good as S1's but I thought it was still nice.
I wish I could read moon... well, volume 24 will be released April 11, that's all what I can tell
Daddy-bear is much better.
the queen will never be a chubster again.
She should be the main lead. Chihaya is trash.
>she's been interacting a great deal with Suo, the current Meiji
Is he training her to beat Queen or trying to get in her pants? Or both.
REMINDER TAICHI IS THE BEST BOY
REMINDER THE MANGA HAS NOT YET DETERMINED WHO WINS CHIHAYA
REMINDER IT CAN GO EITHER WAY AND ANY OTHER INFORMATION IS SLANDER
Of course they will. They were a bunch of Taichifags.
Animeonlyfag detected. Read the manga.
Reminder that we don't care, we just don't want him to win. I mean, take away his suffering and he's nothing.
So does this mean that Madhouse are Taichifags? They over emphasized the suffering he goes through.
taichi is olev
Personally I like the second OP better.
What chapter is this from?
