Some Autumn/Fall Anime 2011!

Yes, you can tell how impatient and eager I am for the autumn line-up seeing as the summer anime hasn’t even had a chance to start. Ah well. I’m mainly doing this post since one of my favourite manga is being adapted into an anime for the fall, and since I was at it I thought I might as well add a few others.

My main source for all the anime listed here is from Fan Sub Wiki. The other sources I cite are mostly those I found after I went through my main source; you can find articles all over but I’m not gonna cite every single friggin one I found

After writing up this whole article, I kinda feel like this fall line-up is actually a whole lot more interesting than the summer o_O

Anyway! Let’s start with the one I’m most excited about! =D

Chihayafuru

All her life, Chihaya’s dream was to see her model sister become Japan’s best… That is, until a quiet, unassuming transfer student named Arata tells her otherwise. A dream, he explains to her, is something she needs to work at herself. Arata plays a competitive version of a traditional Japanese card game–known as Hyakunin Isshu–in a way Chihaya has never seen before. After taking Arata’s place in a game, Chihaya discovers she has a passion for it. Now Chihaya wants to become number one in the world, the Queen of Karuta.

I was super excited when I found out this was being adapted into an anime. I follow the manga, and it is really, really good. Worth every single scrap of time you may or may not have. It’s about a game probably nobody outside Japan would have heard of –karuta. It doesn’t really matter to me though – I’ve read stuff like Eyeshield 21 (epiccc), Saki and Ookiku Furikabutte without understanding what the hell was going on in the first few chapters (I still didn’t understand crap about mah-jong by the end of Saki) but I still really, really enjoyed the stories. These sports manga really emphasises dedication, perseverance and teamwork – themes I really like.

So I like Chihayafuru. A lot.
