  • It makes you want to bloom
    Just as how a beautiful flower captured my attention, this anime does the same with its beautiful artwork. However, this anime does something more after I take a few moments to watch few of its first episodes. It had me hooked, and I could not stop to sniff its scent just once. I had to sniff its scent thoroughly and completely watch all of its episodes in a marathon fashion in order to be ...

    Great Characters slow story, I remember growing up still have some to do.
    The only strike I really have against Hanasaku Iroha is that the story takes a while to progress. This is not a weak point, I just personally prefer fast paced stories it gives you time to find out how the characters interact with one-another. Also I think this show appeals to both men and women.

    Characters are good our heroine Ohana Matsumae is a naive every-girl who is more or less abandoned ...

Grandmother is cold to her, and so she must learn to work at the inn to earn her keep. It is tough and she is scolded a lot, and not liked by some of the staff, but ...

  • Trying to bloom, isn't easy.
    Growing up, and living your own life isn't something that will be easy for everyone. In the case of Ohana, it's a very difficult road that takes her for a spin. Ohana is a 16 year old girl who left her Mother's house to live and work at her Grandmother's Ryokan. A Japanese style inn. During her stay, you go along with Ohana on an adventure full of life lessons, hardships, romance, family ...

    Cuteness personified
    This was such a cute and adorable anime. The characters were well-defined and didn't annoy at all. The personal conflicts were believable, and several of the episodes had me in tears, both from laughter or sorrow. The storyline was well devised, and cleanly ended (though it would be fun to see more). Such a great watch!

  • Amazing! I love this anime!
    This has got to be one of my favorites! I had cried so much at the last episode! I really hope there is a season 2! I heard that there might be a movie and season 2?! If that's true then I can't wait for this anime to be back! <3

  • A very touching series.
    This was a wonderfully touching series. You get pulled in from the start and will find yourself getting attached to all the characters and their different personality's. It's full of every emotion, fun and has some great humor. I was very sad when it ended. If you are thinking about watching it, go for it, you will be glad you did!

    Great anime series. It's one of those anime where right after you get done watching it you question your life and what your going to watch next. Love this anime, great story and characters. I wish their was a release of the movie in the us or on C.R. but still awesome 5 out of 5.

  • A Heart Warming Experience, One You Should Not Miss!
    This anime is full of highs & lows. You'll find yourself laughing, crying uncontrollably, urging the characters on and in general just getting into the show.

    Ohana who is not sure of herself finds what she is missing in life and in doing so, realizes what she wishes to become for the rest of her life. Her enthusiasm touches everyone at the Kissuoso both family & friends alike, charging the ...
