Never even heard of it tbh. Unless there's a different english title I might know.
Chihayafuru went untranslated for the name
Yeah. It has a significance in the plot and a straight translation wouldn't be related to the show as it comes from the poems on the cards that they use in the sport (yes a competitive card game that's classed as a sport in Japan!) featured in the show.
To describe the show, it's a sports show with the usual tropes of ups and downs, but also a Shoujo romance (although that part is mainly in the background). And also a little insight into Japanese culture.
Like I said in my post above the matches can get really tense, which doesn't always happen in sports shows.

Woo. Someone else is watching it! Have you been waiting since 2013 for it? I've only been waiting since earlier this year when I watched the first 2 seasons in preparation for the original start date in the Spring season before it got moved.

I watched the first two seasons when they were new; I'd given up hope of there being more. Really enjoying season three so far :)

Ergo Proxy ep10-11

Quite a strong Blade Runner vibe from these two, given that the characters are dealing with unreliable memories and symbolic dreams. The fact that Re-L seems to be wearing Rachael's fur coat from the film suggests this isn't a coincidence either. Heck, even her pistol looks like Deckard's blaster.

Dragon Pilot ep9-10

Yeah, this sure is a Mari Okada show.

Space Dandy (dub) eps 7-10
Race = a bit stop-start with all those stings breaking up the story, but some ending!
Pooch Planet = a bit dull really.
Plant Planet = "Enjoy this trip, and it is a trip" I thought it was the Yuasa episode at first, but no. The director and animation director have both worked with him though.
Time Loop = Lots of references to number 8 😉

Assassins Pride episode 5 Checkmate?

No Guns Life episode 5 A Doctor and an admirer.

Mobile Suit Gundam Wing episodes 44-49 (Complete. An enjoyable Gundam series with plenty of political intrigue and a solid cast of characters, though I didn’t care for Lady Une or Dorothy. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long for the AL release of Endless Waltz.) 4/5

Also checked out the first episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus and the new transfer looks quite nice, a solid improvement over the DVDs.

Space Dandy (dub) eps 11-13 (complete)
11 = Another episode that, um... no I forget
12 = No I'm Dandy
13 = Robot Love
An episodic show in which the episodes are hit and miss. I would say for me it was roughly 50/50 on ones I liked.
The art and animation were both very good.
7/10 baby

Railgun
Sword Art Online Season 1 complete

Having heard mixed thing over the years and the initial pricing structure putting me off I'm really glad I finally watched it. As a big fan of Log Horizon and Overlord it really shouldn't be a surprise that I was all over this. The story was interesting, and at times quite surprising. The action and animation were great too. Looking forward to season 2.

Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust

Didnt really know anything about this but really enjoyed it. The animation was stunning. The story was so fast paced too it was very easy to watch. Being a movie some characters felt a bit bare bones but it's easily forgivable for such a good ride.
