Humorous and insightful, this offbeat relationship drama follows the fluctuating fortunes in the life of Chihaya, a high school student who is driven by her love for karuta, the traditional, competitive card-playing game. Right from childhood, she developed a passion for this little-known sport and started playing with her friends very early on.
Now in high school, Chihaya pours all her skills and energy into forming a karuta club, with an aim to become the world champion in this traditional Japanese sport.
However, her secret wish is to get her childhood band back together. The good-spirited Kanade, bumbling Yusei, and intellectual Tsutomu soon join, and from hardship to hardship, they work hard and play hard to become the best karuta team Japan has ever known.
