The wraparound jacket band on the 17th volume of Yuki Suetsugu's Chihayafuru manga is revealing next week that a second anime season will launch.
This story, which follows a schoolgirl competing in the Japanese card game of karuta, won the second Manga Taisho (Cartoon Grand Prize). Chihayafuru also won the shōjo manga category in last year's Kodansha Manga Awards, and topped the female category of Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! book listings the year before.
