    SUPER PAWESOME WATCH NOW.
    The first thing that attracted me was the art. The animation is gorgeous with both the setting and characters beautifully drawn. Even though 3D animation was used in the background, it mixes well into the 2D. Each Hanasaku Iroha episode felt like a mini-movie, with its incredibly high quality graphics and realistic-looking setting. I also noted some interesting filmography angles, which really ...

    worthwhile? a masterpiece, damn it! xD
    beginning of an end... ? Nah
    Hanasaku Iroha tells the story of people living and working at Kissuiso, a Japanese ryookan (inn). There's drama, there's comedy, there's also romance. Expect difficult questions and dilemmas far more puzzling than average anime problems. While the plot is mature and by no means naive, it shows the world of adults from the perspective of ...

    Hanasaku Iroha Review
    Ohana who is happy with her life in Tokyo is shocked by the sudden change to the countryside of Japan to live with her Grandmother and her great inn. Ohana meets new people, has new experiences, and experiences her first love. This series is exceptionally cute. The story really shows youth. The characters really develop over the course of the story. The storyline really never given me a time where ...

    Character Growth is a Beautiful Thing
    One of the most compelling aspects of a story is watching its characters change and grow as they progress and meet their challenges. This is what makes this show so enjoyable, despite the relatively simple narrative. Even a story about someone leaving their home to gain some perspective on their life can be entertaining when done correctly.

    A really amazing story
    I just finished the final episode, and I have to say I was absolutely blown away by this series. Without giving anything much away, the characters absolutely drive this show, and even those you dislike at first you'll grow to love. I honestly can't think of anything negative to say, other than the usual complaints in a slice of life series where romance is involved.

    Just be warned, there are a ...

    Reservation for one, please.
    This show is not going to be everyone's cup of tea- Firstly, It's about a group of girls, it's slightly boring at times, and sometimes it's even a little bitter. But it is by far the best slice-of-life show I've ever seen, filled with many touching and unforgettable moments, great characters, a charming setting, witty dialogue, and a whole lot of growing up.

    Hanasaku Iroha is a bit like ...

    The Best Story And Most Lovable Characters!!
    I LOVE THIS SERIES!!
    This is by far the best series I have ever seen in my entire life. You could not help but fall in love with the characters and want to see this place in real life. I wish the Kissuiso truly existed so I could go there and make my own memories. I loved the series so much I wrote the production company and pleaded for them to extend it so we could all see where these ...

    Best openings in any anime... ever!
    So, I'm just going to start this review by stating why I gave this anime 5 stars: the opening songs are amazing! At first I thought "Hana no Iro" was kind of annoying, but by the end of the show it turned out to be the best opening song ever! Really gets you into the mood of the anime!

    Oh yeah, and the actual show is pretty decent too...

    Beautiful and Inspirational
    This work was absolutely stunning. In my society, no one wants to work, and it really has inspired me and help me realize a lot about myself as well. The character development is impeccable, and I felt like I grew along with them. I will always keep this anime close to my heart.

    Expect Happy Tears. Fest it up!
    Starts out with some of the most unique character designs I've seen without going crazy and steadily builds upon the individual characters until you can't help but love every one of them. A touching series that avoids all the cliche we've come to expect of anime. It will make you cry again and again!
