Be Love is also the magazine in which Chihayafuru is launched and published in, but is now currently on hiatus.
The Chihayafuru franchise chronicles the story of titular main character Chihaya, who forms a Karuta club in their school and aiming to excel at this traditional Japanese game which revolves around memory and poetry.
