Hanasaku Iroha

Hanasaku Iroha

Aired: Apr 3, 2011 to Sep 25, 2011
Genre : Drama, Slice of Life
Status : Finished Airing
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)
