Suetsugu Yuki's popular manga series Chihayafuru, which has won both the Manga Taisho Award and the Kodansha Manga Award, arrives on the silver screen in a two-part live-action adaptation starring breakout actress Hirose Suzu. Taking on the first big-screen leading role of her young career, Hirose, who impressed with her performance in Our Little Sister, plays a schoolgirl making strides in the world of competitive karuta, a card game that originated in 19th-century Japan. Directed by Koizumi Norihiro (The Liar and His Lover), Chihayafuru co-stars rising actors Nomura Shuhei (Flying Colors) and Mackenyu (Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future), the son of Sonny Chiba.
Ayase Chihaya (Hirose Suzu) became interested in karuta thanks to her childhood friend Wataya Arata (Mackenyu). Chihaya soon decides to make it her life's goal to become the best karuta player in the world, but she and Arata are unable to continue spurring each other on in their shared passion due to his moving away. Years later, Chihaya establishes the Mizusawa Karuta Club in high school with her friend Mashima Taichi (Nomura Shuhei). As time passes and she climbs the ranks in competitive karuta, Chihaya maintains hope that she'll have the chance to be with Arata once again.
