Chihayafuru Ep 6: The Meanings behind the Poems

Impression:

This week’s episode was like… AMAZING, GORGEOUS, BRILLIANT.
Oh and that last line at the end of the episode.
YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH I WAS SQUEAING? OH MY GOD, MY INNER SHIPPING FANGIRL WAS GOING NUTS!!! OH AND IF YOU HAVEN’T REALIZED IT ALREADY, CHIHAYA X ARATA IS MY OTP FOR THIS SHOW! I LIKE TAICHI NOW BUT FFFF ARATA WINS OVER HIM.
This week we met a new character, Kanade who becomes the first member to join the Karuta Club besides Taichi and Chihaya!

What I love about this girl is how she knows the meanings behind the poems. The stories they tell, the color, it makes the meaning of it so much deeper! It was incredibly fascinating to hear the insight of what ‘Impersonate God’ and the story behind the red river. It makes me freak out (in a good way) how in a way, it’s about Love.

    Kanade is awesome XD
    I wonder if she will be able to win any competetive karuta matches O.o
    I also wonder if Arata knew the meanings of the poem before giving her the chihayafuru card name.

      It makes me wonder as well.
      *GRINS* I would go nuts if he did.

      Kanade’s knowledge is astounding! I’m looking forward to seeing her compete! <3

    “Chihayafuru is…a poem about deep red love!”

    ^ The fact I still remember that last line amounts to just how high I felt after hearing that xD
