Readers of the Chihayafuru manga will get to watch an anime version in October.
Chihayafuru, written by Yuki Suetsugu, follows the story of the girl who plays karuta (Japanese card game) in various competitions. Chihayafuru was chosen as Best Shoujo Manga at the 35th Annual Manga Awards last month.
If Yuki Suetsugu's name sounds familiar, it should. Back in 2005, the author admitted to copying various panels from another author's manga. Oh snap!
Thankfully people believe in 2nd chances. Let's hope they do a good job with the anime.
