Chihaya Ayase dreamt of seeing her sister become Japan's next top model until the day a new transfer student, Arata Wataya, tells her that she should have a dream for herself to work at. Arata's own dream is to become a top Karuta player; this dream also becomes Chihaya's own after she experiences the game firsthand and becomes entranced by it.

''Chihayafuru'' is an anime based on a manga by the same title and winner of Kodansha Manga Award for Best Shoujo and the Manga Taisho Award. It also marks [[CareerResurrection the recovery of the author]], Yuki Suegutsu, after the infamous [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2005-10-19/yuki-suetsugu-copies-art-from-other-manga plagiarism scandal]] that almost ruined her career.

* MeaningfulName: ''All'' of the major characters have a karuta poem with which they are associated, often times this card is considered their "signature card". The most blatant one is Chihayafuru, which is both Chihaya's signature card and the series namesake. However, Kanade's signature card is Ooeyama, and the card Sumire identifies with is Hananoiro, which both of their last names reference.

* HowWeGotHere: Manga begins with an 18 year old Chihaya playing in the Queen match. Immediately flashes back 6 years before to show us how she met Arata and discovered her passion for karuta. The story picks up again 3 years later when the cast is in their first year of highschool.
