Announcement of acquisition made through Siren Visual's facebook page;

Chihayafuru follows a schoolgirl named Chihaya Ayase (Asami Seto - Amelita Trumbe in Dog Days) who only dreamed about her sister making it as a fashion model. But when Chihaya discovers a obscure card game based on Japanese poetry (karuta) from a quiet high school transfer student named Arata Wataya (Yoshimasa Hosoya - Nezumi in No.6) she decides to forge her own path in life.

The anime series is based on the manga of the same name written and illustrated by Yuki Suetsugu, published in Kodansha's Be-Love josei (women's) magazine since 2007. Morio Asaka (Aoi Bungaku Series, Card Captor Sakura, Chobits, NANA) directed the project at studio MadHouse, and Naoya Takayama (Supernatural the Animation) was in charge of the scripts with character designs by Kunihiko Hamada (NANA).

The anime series runs for 25 episodes and was originally broadcast in 2011. Chihayafuru has been followed by a second season that started in January 2013 and both series are streamed on Crunchyroll.

Currently there is no further information on Siren Visual's website concerning the release date, format the release will take and any further detail. However we will post further information as it comes to light.
