Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan is a 3 min epi anime about a shrine maiden. The anime is a comedy and it is pretty funny. The anime is a bit mature as it is seinen. What I mean is the anime has mature comedy. I don’t recommend it for kids. Its also pretty cute at times. Yet over all the anime is average. The story is like any other shrine maiden story. Everything was expected there wasn’t much of a mystery. However it was delightful to watch.

Overall Rate: 5/10
