It’s one treat after the other for fans of the josei karuta anime Chihayafuru.
The limited edition of the 22nd volume of the manga will be bundled with the OAV. This bonus episode will feature an original story with a bittersweet twist. Whose story will it be? That has not been clarified by sources so we’ll have to wait for an announcement at a later date.
The limited edition package is priced at 3,675 JPY (44.82 SGD). Pre-orders are accepted until July 24.
Previously, Chihayafuru author Yuki Suetsugu treated fans by giving them a chance to land a role in the manga. The role was auctioned off on Yahoo! Japan. Its proceeds went to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami charity. The winner is given the chance to select which character he/she wants to interact with. The bid for the manga role closed at 1,001,000 JPY (12,209.20 SGD).
