    My Favorite Short of the Season, along with Wakaba Girl!
    Hmmmm, so it's basically one of those 'generic' "Cute Girls doing Cute things" type of Anime. As explained above, it's a Short...3 minutes or so long, but with a good Minute long or so OP.

    As many Others have said, this Show isn't much about for Plots...Basically it's a new setting each Episode. And in the Background We have both "Rivals"....well, at least to Hakone, that's what THEY SAY they ...

    Episode 1 First Reaction EDITED! FULL REVIEW!
    This is one of those short shows that is about 3 and a half minutes long so it doesn't have much time for much actual plot. The comedy in this is pretty decent and the art and animation is pretty mediocre. The OP (I don't get why there should be one in a 3 and a half minute show) takes up about 1/8th (30 seconds of a 210 second show) of the episode so looking for character development may be hard. ...

    Cute art, but that's really it.
    I started watching this show because I saw the cover art and thought it was very cute. When I read the description up here on Crunchyroll I found it very interesting. I've always liked anime with spirits involved. I gave it a shot and was very purplexed. Three minutes.... With the opening three minutes and thirty seconds. I hated that; and yet I couldn't stop watching. Not sure if it was ...

    A "Meh" commercial of Hakone region hot springs
    This anime is meant to be a commercial for a Hakone region hot springs (near the base of Mr. Fuji and an hour away from Tokyo). You will see an assortment of this anime to attract tourists. A lot of visitors have paid homages to particular sites like Toyosato Elementary School (K-ON!), Dogo Onsen (Spirited Away), Iwami Town in Totori Prefecture (Free!), Chichibu City in Saitama (Ano-Hana), ...

    Entertaining but Short
    While Hakone-chan is not the stand out of animes, or short animes for that matter, it is definitely fun to watch. Besides a colorful cast of cute characters, it is quite funny, though some of the jokes are cliche. The art could be better also, but if you are just looking for a quick laugh and just entertaining short, I highly recommend Hakone-chan!

    Just in, "Hakone-chan" from the Mayor's Office
    Overall, Hakone-chan can be labeled as one of those animes that you watch when you're bored and there's nothing else to do. If you find entertainment simply from watching anime, then this is for you. Otherwise, there's a lot of better options for you to take a look at this season. ^.^

  • Not amazing, but cute.
    I thought this was just a cute little anime. I wasn't overly captivated with it, so it wasn't something I binged. However, when I was looking for something to kill a few minutes while I was cooking or making tea, this was great. My main concern is I feel that it could have been more like a continuing story, instead of broken segments.

  • Cute and funny, if a bit short.
    Cute girls doing cutesy things. 13 episodes at 3 and a half minutes long. That leaves something to be desired but for a short anime it is still worth the time to watch. It has humor, with most episodes giving a good chuckle or a hearty laugh.

    Each episode has some random mini plot to them so there is at least something in the way of a story. It is worth giving it a try. At worst you've only ...

  • A cute short-form but nothing too special
    The title says it all, really. This short-form is cute, well-drawn and has a few charming (and a few very generic) characters. The storyline is loose but consistent over the season. It's entertaining but nothing special or overly memorable. I like the size of the episodes, though.

  • Adventures of a Hot Spring Spirit
    Hakone-chan is one of those seasonal anime shorts with familiar characters and predictable twists. However, It's still enjoyable to watch the antics of Hakone and her friends. If you're looking for a short series with little plot, then this is for you.
