Thoughts on Chihayafuru?

Did anoyone else find Chihayafuru kind of boring? I thought it was going to be great, since I had read some good reviews.

And though the art work is beautiful, the story isn't very captivating at all. It's high school students playing a card game, and it reminded me much of shows like Beyblade and Pokemon, only for more "mature" people. The protagonist is so quiet and has little personality, I find it hard to believe the others want to be around her. I can't even remember any of the other characters, except her two guy friends who play the game with her, and that is mostly only because they're hot and probably like her.

I hate dropping animes, in fear that they suddenly become masterpieces at the last episode, but I decided that Chihayafuru just wasn't worth my time anymore. Now, I only dropped it at episode 8, and I am curious to know what you guys think about this anime, even if you really like it. Did I make a mistake, or was I right to not spend more time on this?

  2. I found the early parts of the show boring but loved it once the competitions got started. If you're already up to episode 8, you won't have to wait much longer.
