I just finished Hanasaku Iroha this morning and I really loved it; so I was wondering what people, who watched the show, thought of it? Were you satisfied? Do you want more? How do you feel about the show as a whole?

Please try to avoid spoilers, or tag them, for those who haven't finished it yet.

I actually started the show a week and a half ago, and I watched, pretty much, every episode one after another. I felt my heart pull through out the the show as conflicts arose between different characters, and I clapped for joy when bonds were formed. I really love how the characters developed through the show along with the relationships between them. I'm sad to see it over, and I would love to see a second season, but I don't know what they would do...

When I first saw this anime I wasn't sure where it was going to go .

Started slow... a slow paced anime but the story , a slice of life which involved,school,love ones, work, family and friends as coming together.. Developing all the characters which is not easy to do when there are a lot of characters to begin with. Nurturing the story along with the characters.With laughter , sadness and conflict along the way.There were moments it slowed down a bit but when I watched it one after the other it felt more connected.

And for the ending, is one of best ending I have seen in this genre.The animation is just awesome, I noticed so many little details like the coming train from a far distance.Just amazing.

It was both sad and sweet.

Thank you PA Works for producing this fine and high quality anime and for Masahiro Ando sensei for directing this anime.

You know I always wonder if the Japanese anime production company streaming their anime here in Crunchy, check the forums for feedback from the english reading viewer or the North American viewers .It would be nice if they do and acknowledge us. We are intelligent viewers here... i hope

Viz Anime has a feedback tab and a comment section for each episode ... I think they read those.

For me it started in a weird way. I was thinking, okay, her mother left her and so on, that's a hectic start. Then everything went slow and i felt that the things that took place just was some randomness. But now i know that it was those episodes in the series was the start of the bonding together as a "family" period. But then everything change and it turned out to be one of the best animes i ever seen, alongside with Myself;yourself.

The animation was absolutely amazing! Can't believe that it's possible to make glass reflections in a drawn anime. But a lot of things is possible with computer, but still! And all the small details aswell. I may say that the production companies that makes cartoons for Disney, Nikelodeon and Cartoon Network can watch and learn. Because newer western countries cartoon animations and drawings sucks due to lack of details....



I think that this anime has learn us all a valuable lesson that, you have to fight and struggle for the things you love, aswell as do your best and fest it up for something you valuate and love, so you let people know your true feelings about it. (Yes, this sounded a little corny )

The anime got a good introduction, mid-way is starting to decline, it started to pick up again towards the end, with the ending bringing closure to a series that overall, in my opinion, was/is good.


I watched the series from the very begining when it air in the Spring, I actually managed to watch this every Sunday Morning @ 10:30am and started to get into the habit of eating breakfast at that time too -Breakfast and Hanasaku Iroha
I give Hanasaku Iroha a 8/10

"I didn't watch it. Was it good?"

Yes, overall, it was pretty darned good. Storyline was a girl's "coming-of-age" story, set in current times. Not overboard on the angst crap, like so many show go with. The art quality was top rate, as were the details within.
The final episode seemed almost like a "filler" episode, though it did show the future paths of the characters that a viewer would care about, as well as setting things up for a second season.
I'd have to say, chrome_mist, that this show's worth the time to watch, aye.

I think the likelihood of loving this story is very high if you enjoy seeing people realize that life is endless discovery.

Hanasaku Iroha has a very solid story line, beautiful visuals, wonderful music, and really well done voice acting. What takes it even further, for me is the lovely way people learn about each other and then learn about themselves.

It's a rare treat to watch complicated, and sometimes impulsive, little interactions observed so deftly and with such compassion. Every kind of emotion was drawn from me while watching this series. The main feeling was one of pleasure in "meeting" and coming to know more about these characters.

I can only hope there will be more of this story and of stories as good as this.

this was a truly wonderful story, full of very interesting and entertaining individuals. I'd love a second season, but I'd be very surprised if it got one.

I liked it a lot. Slow start, and I was about to give it up when stuff started happening. Got a bit dull after epi 12, but picked up towards the end. Loved the last episode.
Top quality animations, good soundtrack, good actors.

I was surprised that I kept coming back to watch it every week, the day it came out. I normally don't like stuff that's so ordinary (slice-of-life) that you wonder why they bothered to make it animation*. I found myself quite drawn in by Ohana, who totally "made" the show. I guess it's just because she's so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, as the idiom goes. The beautiful helped a lot too. I'm not one to take aesthetics over content, but I must admit that it definitely adds a lot.

*This is meant to just meant to get a point across, so don't go bugging me with arguments for why they make animate content like this.

It's a beautiful show that focuses on slice of life and obstacles in life. (I praised the beautiful art work) Every episode there is always some character development. I read the manga before they announced the anime adaptation; and doubt this will ever make into an anime. Surprisingly it did.

I recommend this to those who are looking for a slow and realistic anime.

This show was 26 episodes long. Was it worth watching the whole thing. I would say so. It is the best anime to be aired this year. All the characters were attractive and good story.

Loved it.
I was satisfied with the final, but hoping there will be a 2nd season, there`still stuff they can do in it so.
I loved every characther in it, even though that Takako lady was annoying at first.
It was just so great to watch them work so hard, for some reason.

Some relevant news:
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-10-09/new-hanasaku-iroha-work-in-2012-confirmed

Note that this is a "new visual work", so it doesn't necessarily mean a new series.


Update 12/10/11:

It is confirmed that the "new visual work" is indeed an anime, although this in itself still does not mean a new series, as it could be a OAV, OAD, movie, etc.:
