I’m a huge fan of [Slice of Life] anime. Hanasaku Iroha has an amazing story. Its so heart warming and very beautiful. The story is about family, friendship, change, love and hard work. You won’t be able to have enough once you start the anime its just beautiful. Specially how different characters blind in together and how they can work together to achieve their own goals. Also, how a place that helped them meet each other hold certain values to those people. I very much recommend this anime, you won’t regret it and you will wonder why did it take you this long to watch it. Its a great anime.

Overall Rating: 9/10
