  • Brillant Slice of Life Story with Hardships and Drama!
    Hanasaku Iroha is a beautiful story about a girl and her coming-to-age life story with many aspects of drama, romance, passion, dreams, and genuine humour. Ohana has declared to be one of my most favourite fictional characters there are in literature. She stands out when compared to many people, especially when compared to the real world because it is extremely rare to encounter a person with ...

  • Awesome slice of life anime
    So much character development and emotions involved. The anime brings out a lot of nuances that are fundamental to the Japanese culture. Japanese folks would often take pride in the kind of jobs we often take for granted and seem inferior in comparison to western culture, and these thoughts, the pride, the emotions and the dreams that goes with it are properly communicated and conveyed throughout ...

  • Bonboru! One of the best Slice of Life anime out there.
    I was pretty skeptical of this anime during the first few episodes, (mostly because of the mean characters :c) but after the 10th episode, i was hooked. The animation is crisp, the characters are dynamic, and the main protagonist has a good amount of character development (honestly the best female lead ever). WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE? Also, the openings are so CATCHY. This anime is just so darn ...

  • Usuniki's Review: "Beautiful story and recommend it to watch it!"
    My personal Rating: 9.9/10

    It's been a long time since I've seen a Slice of Life done well. Is one of the calmest animes I have ever seen. There's something about the series that is just very relaxing, in a good way.

    Now going back to the bit about Hanasaku Iroha being 26 episodes. The 26 episodes really did justice to each of the characters. Each character's strengths, weaknesses, and ...

  • Come for the fun, stay for the friends.
    Of all the shows I have watched, some have good characters, some have bad. But no show has made me feel like I knew so many of the characters as friends like Hanasaku Iroha. Make no mistake: this show has great art, great music (Hana no Iro, the opening is ridiculously catchy!), and a really great story. That's all well and good, but it's the superbly developed characters that raise this show up ...

  • Great slice of life anime.
    Hanasaku Iroha is a great slice of life anime. It's not the best but not the worst out there. This anime has any great qualities about it. To me the best qualities were the scenery and how the plot move along smoothly. Only thing I didn't like much was how Ko was only in about 4 episodes

    This is a great slice of life anime, the core characters of the show are likeable, diverse and interesting, furthermore their is a beautiful arc of development for the main cast both individually and through various relationships between them across the course of the show. Beautifully animated and scored this show manages to bridge the balance of all the elements a great coming of age story needs. ...

  • 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 ...
