  • Just Simply Beautiful
    The artwork, the voices, the characters... everything is stunning in this anime. As the story progresses, it is predictable, but it's not a bad thing. Emotions run high with this anime: excitement, sadness, happiness... it's all very well portrayed and easily felt by the viewer. Must watch!

  • Beautiful from start to finish
    I found this through the random feature so I had no expectations going in. This show is the perfect example for quality of quantity. A very simple story floats the show along with ease and makes it a, overall, very enjoyable experience. Without trying to force anything the show offers a lot and doesn't expect much from you as the viewer. It takes the time develop each character while also ...

  • Not your typical Moe
    Cute girls doing cute things? absolutely. Stereotypical moe? not at all.

    Instead of just another show full of cuteness overload and not much else, HaNaYaMaTa gives you a reason to actually care about the characters and who they are.

    First of all, the OP/ED really gets you into the mood for Japanese culture. The whole show is based around traditional dancing styles and how much passion these ...

  • Fun, energetic, and beautiful
    I first heard about this show on a video for the top 10 catchiest opening songs of anime https://youtu.be/ev7stMgbzEY . I wanted to check it out so I went on Crunchy roll and saw how kawaii it was and got hooked.The girls' friendship through yosakoi is great and I wish they had a second season for this show. I would recommend this to anybody who was looking for a show with ...

  • Just a Sweet and Fun Loving story
    This story really takes me back, in a sense that it makes you feel youthful. There's nothing especially different about this anime beside the dance itself. But i liked this anime cause its just overall a sweet little anime to watch. I would give it a 3.5 stars if that option was available. The first few episodes are hard to get anyone into the story but by the fifth episode it really sucks you ...

  • AMAZING! love love love
    Everything is perfect; it looks super nice and pretty, you fall in love with the characters, the music, the story etc!! I can relate with the characters and even if it seems like just a happy light sparkle sparkle anime there is a deeper meaning to it. Really hope there will be a 2nd season ;(

  • It's beautiful, but the plot...
    The music, the graphics, the beauty of it all is SO good! The plot, it's like your typical yuri (kinda) slice of life. Good thing about slice of life is that it would be a "feel good anime," which it is. I would definitely recommend this one if you want to feel happy and not scared, take your mind off of something. But, it did have potential for some other story..

  • Try for the cute. Stay for the warm fuzzies.
    At first, I wonder why I like this show so much. The characters aren't that unique or interesting. The animation quality never seems to surpass its opening title sequence. There's very little plot, and when conflict does occur, it feels contrived. Even as a cultural exercise, the yosakoi presented by the series didn't seem that impressive.

    But I still really liked it. I even found myself ...

  • A simple and fun girls' anime
    This shoujo slice-of-life series was a pleasant treat. The story's about middle school girls coming together to learn traditional Japanese dance. There are some typical young-teen problems and 'issues' to be worked out, but it's not laid on heavy and the whole series is upbeat and positive. There's no romance and little echhi in the show. Character design, animation, voice acting and sound effects ...
