Chihayafuru Discussion: No Season 2....
TN: Well, since seiyuu Mamoru Miyano and the others have been working on different projects for release in 2012, I think it's safe to say that there won't be a Season 2 of Chihayafuru anytime soon (-_-;)
BUT, Hosoya Yoshimasa has been lending his talent to Inu tou Boku Secret Service (InuxBokuSS) as the cotton fabric demon Renshou Sorinozuka (which, IMO is kind of a waste for that lovely, deep voice even tho he does have these very dead pan one liners that totally crack me up). Generally, a true rendition of Cocoa Fujiwara's manga that stretches the plot out but definitely worth watching if you're a fan of the series for that same reason. (P.s. I'd add the disclaimer that the material, risqué themes and artwork are suitable for ages 15+)
So, getting back to Chihayafuru, we are now, finally, back into competition season and volume 10. Taichi, Chihaya and Arata are all advancing, but at their own pace and not a whole lot of progressive interaction among these three through volume 11. The competitions are intense and the emphasis is on the teams. I have not yet opened my volume 12 - 13 sitting on my table so don't tell me what happens! ^_^
Obviously, I've been busy stitching, but at this point I'm at standstill regarding the hakama. Purchase one for $65US to save myself from the aggravation of sewing and ironing all those folds, or make one for $35US. (the upper portion gi/kimono is relatively easy -- go to The Cosplay Chronicles if you're remotely interested)
I'm thinking "buy" but, alas, my wallet is looking awfully slim this month <what the heck did I buy??> .... :-(
