  • Slice of Life Done Right
    Hanasaku Iroha is slice of life done right. Characterization was done well enough to make you genuinely care about them, as well as where their own story arcs are going. There is a good mix of humor and serious tones, as well as a few parts which may tug on some heart strings, but luckily the show does not take itself too seriously. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could.

    If you are looking for a ...

  • What an amazing Anime!
    This anime is was so worth watching, the animation is beautiful, the story is great, the characters have their own things that make them special and the situations are something that can happen irl. The story revolves around a girl called Ohana that is sent to her grandmother's inn called "Kissuiso" and is shown what it means to work at the Kissuiso. She then meets a cool cast of characters that ...

  • A Pleasant Surprise!
    This anime is surprisingly good. It certainly lacks in some areas, but as far as a good slice of life goes, Hanasaku Iroha has the basics perfected.

    The Pros:

    The Characters -- It has sweet, lovable characters. Even if you find yourself disliking one of them, you'll probably like them by the end of the series. Every character is a cliche in their own right, however, ...

    I came in for the animation - I left for the childlabor
    I came into this anime expecting a slice-of-life story of a girl growing up. Hardships, personal growth, joys of day to day life.
    Sadly, what I got instead, was a waste of good quality animation on a series that has made me feel... skeeved? Disgusted?
    Before I even go into my points, I'd like to drop an actual, honest to god trigger warning list for the series:
    - Child abuse
    -

  • A touching masterpiece that'll have you smiling one second and crying the next! <3
    It's funny how much you can relate to each and every character, for their trials and dreams. An outstanding Slice of Life anime for everyone out there looking for a smile and a tear.
    I'm now going to look for a new purpose now that this masterpiece has ended... ^^

    I don't really feel like making a review right now, and there's way too many good things to say about this. Just watch it, okay? 1000/10

  • This anime grew very dear to my heart
    I can honestly say, and I've watched a lot of 'Slice of Life' animes before, that this is one of the best ones. Not to go off for too long, I'll try and keep it short. These characters really grew on me, and they started to feel familiar. This is an anime that'll make you grow attached to every single character and their own stories. Saying goodbye to this anime was almost like saying a final ...

  • Love the show! HATE Minko!!
    Minko Tsurugi, I hate you and I always will. May you end up alone and barren you worthless, emotionless little bag of sentient puke. That character alone made this show lose an entire star. I hope she gets hit by that train that this show loved to reference so much. The little one that would make her death seem all the more pointless...but I digress....
    This show has some awesome characters with ...

  • Sweet, fun and funny
    Without a doubt, my favourite line from this series is "Drop your cocks and grab your socks" courtesy of the head waitress, Tomoe of Kissuisō.
    This show was a bit hard to swallow at first, mostly no doubt due to my western sensibilities. But it quickly grows on you. The animation is lovely, the characters are interesting, and the plot is solid. the development of our heroine is tempered by a ...
