Chihaya, Taichi and Arata are childhood friends, bound by their passion for competitive karuta (a traditional Japanese card game using poetry and lightning-fast reactions). Separated by circumstance, they are now teenagers on different paths – but energetic Chihaya believes the karuta national championship will reunite their friendship. But when classical poetry is not exactly cool, can Chihaya find enough students to start a karuta team?
