Episode 8: Hakone-chan and Jigokudani

Like someone said in the comments, I wanted to see a loli hot spring demon as well. But we got a muscular man. Also Miya is totally in love with Tohya. He has to beware of his yandere friend

Episode 9

Hakone meets a ghost while making a delivery, and she just wants to bathe in the hot springs before she passes on. It's a great thing Hakone is right there to fulfill that request. Then come two girls who have been spying on them, and I wonder what their deal is.

Episode 9: Hakone-chan and Otamagaike

Aww that's cute. Hakone is cool with everyone even ghost. And better yet she helped this one pass on. Good job Hakone-chan. I think next episode we will finally find out who the other two little girls are.

Episode 10: Hakone-chan and Goura Park

Oh the yandere in Haruka was real. Miya is gonna take him away and I'd be fine with it. However, I just want to know what their connection is to Hakone-chan

Episode 11

So the key to restoring the spirits power is to awaken all seven hot springs spirits, and so far four of them have awoken, although to Hakone and Miya it's just those two they are aware of. So it's off to Ashinoko and a tour on the Tekkosen where Goura and Ashinoko have spotted them. That was pretty interesting to see that there are seven of them that are all spread out.

Miya is super adorable and that was a nice information about the other spirits and such.

Episode 12

Hakone is formally introduced to two more hot springs spirits in Goura and Ashinoko on the ship. Miya's box gets stolen, and Hakone tries to get it back, but she's just too weak. So they team up, and Miya gets it back. That was a pretty amusing fight to get back the box.

Episode 12: Hakone-chan and The New Hot Spring Spirits

Going with a more consistent story line in this final stretch aren't we? Nice to see kind of a team up of Miya and Hakone even though they have been together for awhile now. But she finally realizes it

Episode 13 (Finale)

It's a showdown between spirits, and Hakone is telling everybody that stolen power is worthless. Ashinoko goes crazy and Hakone disappears never to be found again. But of course, she's always going to find her way back.

Final Thoughts

That was a short and cute show to watch for a few minutes every week. Some of the humor didn't click while the animation was about what I would expect out of a short. In the end, it was fun to see these hot springs spirits doing come crazy things. The concept was pretty lame, and that's the biggest problem with this show.

Grade: C (6/10)

It would of been a big twist if she didn't return

Eh, funny series but not memorable.

Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan Finale 6/10


So did they just confirm Miya x Tohya? Cause that'd be great. Anyways they wrapped things up pretty quickly but what can you expect from a short.

Final Thoughts On The Season

It was a fun short, but nothing that would make it really stand out besides a little SoL with a hot spring spirit. All in all, it had some fun moments and it's still a fun watch.
