Chihayafuru is one of those shows which can establish a first grasp on the viewers’ heart and tug the heartstrings to its favor. After the latest season, fans are extremely eager to see Chihayafuru Season 4.
Animanga has 5 main demographics – Kids, Shonen, Seinen, Shoujo and Josei. Josei is the least popular of these. However, due to Chihayafuru and Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, this genre shines extremely bright. Nearly all the fans who’ve watched these, love the experience.
At its core, Chihayafuru is a sports show. Karuta is the main theme and the driving force behind the show. However, the romantic subplot of the series makes it so endearing to fans. The love triangle is a huge topic of discussion and the fandom is divided into Taichi supporters and Arata supporters.
Lets us get to the details about Chihayafuru Season 4 cast, plot. release date and trailer and according to some insider news, the release dates for Overlord Season 4 and Gleipnir Season 2 will be announced soon enough as well.
Chihayafuru manga is authored by Yuki Suetsugu. It has been releasing its chapters in Kodansha’s Be Love – a manga that is released monthly and targets women – since 2007 and also won Kodansha’s Manga Taisho award. Chihayafuru is a popular manga with over 16 million copies in rotation.
Chihayafuru is based on the Japanese competitive sport of Karuta. Young Chihaya developed a deep connection to the sport and it was her way to befriend Arata and Taichi. Their childhood was spent playing the game together.
Years later, Chihaya still cherishes those memories and gets better at the game. Arata has moved away and is depressed due to his grandfather’s death. Taichi is in love with Chihaya but can’t confess yet. Chihaya forms a Karuta club in highschool and she aims to attain the title of Queen!
Through Karuta, Chihaya, Taichi and Arata’s fates are intertwined. They all harbor growing feelings for each other. What does fate have for these young and dedicated minds?
Chihayafuru Season 4 Release Date:
There is no official announcement or news about Chihayafuru Season 4 release date. The third season ended in Winter 2020. Given how there were more than 5 years in between the second and third seasons, it is hard to predict Season 4. But we can expect the third season to get released in 2022.
VAP has quit being the Producer and was replaced by Kodansha. Nippon Television Network will keep funding new seasons, along with Nippon TV Music too. Another new producer, TC Entertainment is also in the fray. As usual, Sentai Filmworks will be the Licensors.
The Studio will probably be Madhouse. This studio has excelled over a wide range of series, creating masterpieces such as Hunter x Hunter, Monster, and Kaiji. Chihayafuru is one of its most popular and incredibly successful projects and another of its project One Punch Man Season 3 will be releasing soon as well. Madhouse will definitely return to make Chihayafuru S4.
Chihayafuru Season 4 Details:
Currently the manga has 44 volumes in rotation. So there is absolutely no shortage of source material for Chihayafuru Season 4. Season 3 adapted the story up to Volume 26. In fact, the way it ended, many fans are eager to move on to the manga.
Following Taichi’s confession and consequent defection from the Mizusawa Karuta Club, Chihaya sees bad days with Karuta. Her feelings are all over the place and they’re affecting her game. She has the new challenge to collect herself and get back into form.
Taichi tries to move on after the rejection. He has to get over Chihaya and how selfishly she acted with him. His relation with Meijin solidifies and he has to improve in order to move on with his life. He makes a strange new acquaintance!
