I watched Chihayafuru a long time back and recently rewatched the series in one stretch (Seasons 1-3). I am greatly interested to see how the story continues.
What's going through my mind is the choice between patiently waiting for the next season or continuing the story by reading the manga. When it comes to sports anime or any anime involving more 'action', I always feel the need to watch the anime for the best experience, especially with animation and soundtracks as good as Chihayafuru.
Season 3 ended around March 2020, almost a year now and no announcements. It makes me believe the next season could only be around 2022 or even later.
Should I be patient and wait for the next season I'm sure would not disappoint or should I be impatient and touch the manga?
Will the manga give me the same satisfaction as watching the anime?
