  • Me: Okay, just one more episode and then I'll study for my exams.
  • Also me after finishing the entire season: Gosh! How can they end it like that? Now I'll have to watch the next season or I'll never be able to focus on anything.
  • The desperate me: *skips the opening and sets the speed to 1.50x*

I’m In The Chihayafuru Dub!

Hey so I announced this on twitter a bit ago but didn’t get to say much. I’m really excited too! I voice Kanade in the Chihayafuru official dub!

Cast List Announcement

I’m huge fan of this show and have watched it at least 3 times fully. If you don’t know this series, it’s actually about the traditional card game karuta and it’s passionate players. Plus, a strong female lead! In all honesty, it sounded really boring to me at first because I’m not into competition anime or traditional culture but there’s something that draws you in. Strongly.

Between the epic orchestral soundtrack, beautiful animation, and inspiring story, it’s a great series to binge when you’re down in the dumps. Just give it a chance and I’m sure you’ll be surprised!

It’s an honor to be a part of the cast and get to play such an awesome character as Kanade. I hope I did her justice and can’t wait to put this one on my resume!

please watch chihayafuru:

  • it’s a sports anime with an amazing female protagonist.
  • people mistake it as a shoujo but it is actually josei.
  • the protagonist team is co-ed, yet there are absolutely no qualms that the female lead is the strongest player among them. there are even boys on the team who look up to her as a personal goal for themselves.
  • there are tons of girls in this anime, and none of them are sexualized. in fact, while playing, the teams wear just regular t-shirts or gorgeous hakama.
  • the sport they play might just possibly be the most beautiful sport in all of japan: karuta.
  • a lot of people choose not to watch this because they don’t know what karuta is. in its simplest definition, karuta is a one-on-one card game. a reader recites poetry from the ogura hyakunin isshu and the players attempt to steal their opponent’s corresponding card while protecting their own.
  • the main rival is also an amazing, badass female, who has so many layers to her character.
  • in fact, all the characters are so fleshed out and go through breathtaking character development through the series, as do the friendships.
  • there are so many emotions in this series. you’ll cry (in the first three episodes even), you’ll laugh, you’ll cheer, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. it’s like a journey.
  • there is a romantic subplot, but it takes a backseat most of the time to give more attention to the teams and the characters and the game itself.
  • the art is spectacular. the imagery is gorgeous.
  • there is so much poetry and symbolism that it’ll take your breath away.
  • you’ll fall in love with karuta. that, i can promise you.
