    Official Lakewatch Review
    This last year I've been watching more and more anime. The reason for this is partially because Crunchyroll.com has been acquiring them as they come out, and I've noticed a trend in the quality of the animes. It's going up.

    I mention this because Hanasaku Iroha seems to fit this bill as well. Its yoru standard girl is uprooted from her family to live with an elder relative/elder relative's ...

    A Breath of fresh air
    Lately within the last 3 seasons, there has been a mass of horrible harem anime and then there are those that lose my interest all together. This has a story which takes away from the typical special powers and giant robots and desperate men fighting for kickass women's attention and brings back a concept called "Character Development". Within these two eps I've watched the main chararacter, ...

    Japanese inn is curious
    Ohana became a nakai? This name reminded me of NHK drama of 2006 or 2007. Workers of Japanese inn have special names which are not used in modern hotels.

    I thought the voice actress of Ohana was Hirano Aya. Apparently Ito Kanae is following Hirano Aya. I liked her hairdo. Nakocchi and Minchi are also my favorite girls. I liked episode 3. You'd better watch it. It's a cute story.

    Hanasaku Iroha - Anime Is Changing for the better?
    Anime these days, to the masses in Japan is about how far you can undress an underage girl without it becoming illegal. It's about magical, wondrous girls with 'cute' powers fighting evil. In skimpy clothes, too.

    Usually fuelled by a lackluster budget and sub-par VA's. Anime in recent years has taken a turn for the worst, and in turn, lost many of its western audience.

    (Albeit, Most Western ...

    A nice suprise in the current lineup
    Hanasaku Iroha has everything it needs to draw me in. Excellent art and smooth animation, entertaining characters that actually have some depth, and music that blends seamlessly into the anime (with decent OP and ED as well). The danger is, its a slice of life anime, and that means that while we're seeing definite character development and interesting episodes, we may or may not have a real ...

  • One of the best in the lineup this year!
    With my 1st episode. I was thinking this might just be like every other anime but this exceeds my expectations. The opening is a bit ... but grows on you. This show shows a lot of promise. Not only is there good art and details but the important thing in this anime is the depth and structure. I must comment on the pacing. Pacing i think is very important in anime, which can sometimes make or break ...

    Beautiful anime, im sure of it
    This anime is not the usual love triangle story, about the main protagonist, otoha who used to live in tokyo and now had to move to a new home.. however its not what she actually expected.
    She has to work and work, and gets befriended with all the employees of the inn where she's staying. Otoha experiences alot new things, what some things are worth do do and such..
    Its a clear story, however ...

    Visually Captivating with an Entertaining Storyline
    Recently I have been watching anime more thanks to Crunchyroll. I used to watch in elementary and jr high but once high school started I had no time on my hands, now fresh in college having my first year over I have had more time and I can say I may be 19 years old but I'm still a girl who loves to spazz over a good anime I can find.

    Hanasaku Iroha is a lovely story about a girl named Ohana ...
