Overall : 8.5/10

Ohana Matsumae, a 16 years old energetic girl, who sent by her mother from Tokyo to her grandmother's inn, Kissuiso, must struggle by working hard in that inn, in order to pay her living expense. Sui Shijima, Ohana's grandmother, is a strict and high-disciplined woman who runs Kissuiso. In her new place, Ohana learns a lot about everything and get new friends there. Aside her cheerful expression, there is a bittersweet love story hidden in her heart.

The overall art of the story is good, not to mention the graphics are dominated by beautiful scenes in the inn. In the early episodes, you may find depressive and tense atmosphere about how Ohana survive with her grandmother's strictness. But, as the time passes, everything goes brighter, Ohana owe a lot of thanks to her grandma instead for the life lesson she gets from her and how important to manage something carefully.
This anime also conveys, wherever you are, you must have somekind of work ethics in yourself (reflected on how Kissuiso employees do their routine)

Released : 2008
Author and Artist : Wakaki Tamiki

The World God Only Knows (Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai), a comedy manga series, mixed with harem, supernatural and school life atmosphere. Keima Katsuragi is an avid gamer, especially galge (dating sims), his daily is spent with playing bunch of games, genius in any lessons, but has a physical issue (reflected on his P.E. lesson). One day, a mysterious letter come to his PFP inbox challege him to conquer some girls. After accept the challenge immediately, a cute devil from hell named Elsie visits him to assign a contract, if he can't manage to conquer the loose spirit which trapped in the certain girls, he'll lose his head. The journey starts here, although Keima has no willing to capture the real girl that he hates the most.
The theme of this story is unique, not to mention the cool attitude and consideration of Keima upon how he conquers the girls through a very neat chronological plot based on his experience playing galge for years. And also Keima has lack interest toward real life resembles some nowadays gamers' mindset as well.
This story, in my opinion, implicitly delivers the message, we have to be real and accept the reality. Unawareness is never a good thing.
