1. Source had a lot of banding and other color issues and took a while to filter them out. Didn't want my favourite shows to get affected by such issues so i decided to work on it. Will upload the other seasons in a while along with all the lossless soundtracks as well.
2. Added japanese episode names ( In english ) along with english translations for karuta fans.
Please seed and enjoy the release!!!.
Note: My final release of Chihayafuru will include all 3 seasons and all 3 live action movies including lossless OST's and other extra live action stuff.
