Chihayafuru fans, rejoice, because the TV anime adaptation of Yuki Suetsugu’s josei manga is getting a third season. And now, the anime’s official Twitter Page has released a new PV for the upcoming anime. It teases one of the most important aspects of Chihayafuru, and that is of course the Karuta!

As the video revealed. Chihayafuru Season 3 will premiere in October 2019 via Nippon TV’s Anichu programming block. Madhouse will once again be animating the project, with Morio Asaka directing the new season. Here is the anime’s key visual:

Crunchyroll released the first two seasons in English, and here is how they describe the anime’s story:

Chihaya Ayase has spent most of her life supporting her sister’s model career. When she meets a boy named Arata Wataya, he thinks Chihaya has potential to become a great karuta player. As Chihaya dreams of becoming Japan’s best karuta player, she is soon separated from her karuta playing friends. Now in high school, Chihaya still plays karuta in the hope that she will one day meet her friends again.

Now that’s certainly something to look forward to in October, huh?
