Before seeing this news, I thought the first season had poor sales that it didn't even get a second season. But when I saw this news, I am so surprised for some reasons !

It's likely due to the massive manga sales and decent rating(iirc) that it happened.

And this is great news :D.

There were already rumors of a second season but I was really shocked when I saw this announced. Anyway it had decent TV ratings (for a series airing midnight) and a massive increase on manga sales + an increase in interest in karuta in Japan (I remember seeing this news somewhere).

I'm just really REALLY happy right now!

Kanon 2012-06-08 07:47

YEEEESSSSS!! Brilliant news! Can't wait for the return of this amazing show.

articuzwolf 2012-06-08 07:54

well as long as they don't end it with crappy original anime ending...

Westlo 2012-06-08 08:03

Isn't this airing in the "Kaiji" timeslot? Sales really didn't matter much... lol @ people who wanted this on noitaminA.... 25 episodes + a second season >>>>>>> 11 episodes.

I made this really weird face when I saw the thread's title pop up as I refreshed the General Anime subforum out of complete disbelief... :D

I'm surprised the announcement isn't coming along with a TV drama or anything of the sort, though. It seemed like the only way to get more Chihayafuru, just like what NTV did for Kaiji (the second season most likely only happened because there was a second live-action movie coming). AFAIK, the bump in manga sales wasn't even that sizable either (I haven't compared the latest volumes though, will get around to that later today)... but eh, the production committee has to be making some money somewhere after all! And I'm so damn glad they did because I was 100% sure we'd never get to see the rest of the manga animated.

I had to suppress a scream of joy since I am at work.

But basically I am super thrilled :D

The latest volumes were pretty high. Chihayafuru Vol. 15 sold 360,000 copies

Oh wow....
Looks like I should finish the first season :D

Haha same here. Fantastic news. It's always great when good shows get a continuation.

Oh, don't get me wrong, the manga is pretty damn popular - but it already was before the anime. I'm looking at the figures again, we can compare the first week sales for random volumes:

Vol. 10: 161,373
(...)
Vol. 14: 171,785
Vol. 15: 192,448
Vol. 16: 212,169

Volume 10 was released in September 2010, well before the anime. Volume 15 was the first one to reflect the anime bump, and vol. 16 was the latest released, right by the end of the anime. Of course it'll be interesting to see the increase on vol. 17 as well, because plenty of other people might've also thought that it'd be the end of animated Chihayafuru so they'd need to read the original to know who ends up winning the war between Arata and Taichi. :D

Sometimes the good guys win after all.

GoldenLand 2012-06-08 10:07

Yessss. This series deserved to be continued so much.

Utsuro no Hako 2012-06-08 10:26

Now if only Kodansha would release more of the bilingual editions so Americans can show our support.

Kaioshin Sama 2012-06-08 10:26

Okay so I guess the situation with anime and the future isn't as dire as I had figured. There's still plenty of room for shows like Chihayafuru. :)

That's two unlikely things to happen this week when I was absolutely certain they wouldn't.

Haak 2012-06-08 10:32

I thought this was gonna get merged with the other thread...

Well anyway this is awesome news. Frankly if there wasn't a second season then that would've simply been tragic, given where the first season left off. I can't wait.

Best news today <3

I hope so but they translated all the 100 poems in the first two volumes so I am thinking that might be it.

Btw speaking of the Chihayafuru manga, vertical had a poll on their FB about what series we want them to license, & Chihayafuru was a choice on the poll. I don't think its getting enough votes though so go over & vote.
