  • Pretty Good Anime...
    Ohana ends up going to live at her granny's hot springs inn because her mother isn't a very responsible parent. The story revolves around her life there and of course her growing relationship with her grandma and fellow workers which is a bit contentious at first but as time goes on they become friends and learn to work with each other and their is a romantic angle to the series but its not over ...

  • Slice-of-Life Done Right
    While Hanasaku Iroha falls victims to some cliches and tropes you find in anime, it's very easy to look past these due to the strong writing, character development and characters. I wish I could remove just half a star - I don't feel right giving it 5/5 as it's not PERFECT but 4/5 also seems too low.

    This series is all about the characters and they have a diverse, and complex selection. A good ...

  • This is a *must* watch!
    This is such a fun coming of age story! Very well written and I love the characters!

    The amount of drama and comedy, and seriousness, are all well balanced throughout the entire series. The artwork is very beautiful.

    This is a great story for the entire family and one that should in your personal collection!

  • Yorokobe! Excellent coming of age show.
    We all have enjoyed a lot of coming of age/age progression literature or entertainment (Harry Potter by JK Rowling, Early Autumn by Louis Bromfield...etc), and this is one show, in my opinion, that gives me equal satisfaction when reading a mainstream favorite or a Pulitzer Prize winner. There's nothing complicated about the plot of the show, as it is simply a 16 year-old girl, abandoned by her ...

  • Emotional ride with characters!
    Hanasaku Iroha was a pleasant ride with these charming characters. The girls are unique and their voice acting is top-notch and emotional, especially Ohana's VA who does an absolutely amazing job depicting a young teenage girl. She also voices Amu Hinamori from Shugo Chara!
    The plot and flow of Hanasaku Iroha was more solid and fun than PA Work's other famous "Three-girl-best-friends" ...

  • <3 Watch it NAAAOW!!
    LOVED this show! It was not too kawaii (perfect amount 4 me) and had an interesting story line. Character development was just perfect! I wish there was another season that goes on into the future, because the ending definitely left me wanting MORE!!

  • Great starter series for me
    This is my first series that I've watched on here and I have to say I loved it so much that I am absolutely gutted there's no more to watch. I'd like to hope there will be more but I am guessing as this is from 2011 there won't be anymore which is a shame, I'd love to see what happens!

  • Not worth trying to get emotionally invested.
    I started watching this show looking for a slice of life that would make me feel emotionally invested. By about the 16th episode, I honestly realized that I was forcing myself to watch this. I don't care for any of the characters. ANY of them. That's never happened before and especially not this far into an anime. But the things that go on in the inn are not relatable (especially the thought ...
