FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sentai Filmworks Shuffles Anime Lineup, Grabs “Chihayafuru” Season 3

HOUSTON, TX  December 2, 2019 — Sentai Filmworks announced today that it acquired distribution rights to the third season of the Chihayafuru franchise for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Scandinavia and Central and South America. The 25-episode follow-up to Chihayafuru and Chihayafuru Season 2 centers on ultra-competitive karuta enthusiast Chihaya Ayase as she climbs to the top of the karuta heap.

They may have just won their most coveted karuta tournament, but members of the Mizusawa karuta team still have a long way to go. Each member chases their dreams, and with a win under their collective belt, those dreams are closer in reach than ever. Chihaya Ayase is determined to challenge Wakamiya Shinobu and win the title of Queen, and Taichi Mashima is ready to take on Arata Wataya now that he’s made it into the most elite of karuta players — but an unexpected revelation will deal these karuta players a hand none of them saw coming.

Produced by studio Madhouse (No Game, No LifeLegend of the Galactic HeroesParasyte -the maxim-), Morio Asaka (ChihayafuruMy Love Story!!, Cardcaptor Sakura) returns to direct Chihayafuru Season 3 alongside series composer Yuko Kakihara (TsukigakireiAsobi Asobase, Orange). Seiyuus Asami Seto (ASSASSINS PRIDE, Food Wars!Haikyu!!), Mamoru Miyano (Ahiru no SoraGatchaman CrowdsMonthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun) and Yoshimasa Hosoya (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?Tanaka-kun is Always Listless, Megalo Box) also return to reprise their roles as Chihaya Ayase, Taichi Mashima and Arata Wataya, respectively.

The series will be available to stream Fall 2019 on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
