Hanasaku Iroha – 06

「Nothing Venture Nothing Win」

Want to know why I love this show much? Week by week, P.A. Works manages to do something amazing each and every episode. The value of a hard earned dollar is something that isn’t preached as often as it should, and I am overjoyed that Ohana demonstrated one of the best character traits to have — modesty.

Plus New Ending Theme This Week!

Hanasaku Iroha – 05

「涙の板前慕情」 (Namida no Itamae Bojou)
“Tearful Chef Romance”

Who saw it coming? I saw it coming. Throughout the entire episode, it would be hard to say that things didn’t feel a bit too pushy at times. From Ohana’s recklessness to Minchi’s extremely hard head, all these things come together to make an episode that will make you want to rip your hair out. But in a good way, sort of.

Hanasaku Iroha – 03

「ホビロン」 (Hobiron)

More so then any other show airing this season that I’ve watched, Hanasaku Iroha has successfully managed to become my number one pick. If not for the amazing cast of characters, or the stupidly funny situations, it has to be the show’s ability to consistently toy with my emotions — bringing them up and down at its whim.

Hanasaku Iroha – 02

「復讐するは、まかないにあり」 (Fukushu Suru wa, Makanai ni Ari)
“Vengeance is a Staff Meal”

I never knew it was possible for a show to extract such a powerful emotional response from me in just the second episode. Somehow, someway, Ohana is turning into my favorite character, ever. I swear, it has to be that never give up attitude that keeps grabbing my attention.

Hanasaku Iroha – 01

「十六歳、春、まだつぼみ」 (Jyu Roku Sai, Haru, Mada Tsubomi)
“Sixteen Years of Age, Spring, Still Buds”

I’m not entirely sure what I just watched. I was pretty sure that I was going headfirst into a slice of life that should look beautiful. But after I really got into things, I can say that I’m still not sure what I just watched. In the words of a Divine person I know, I’ve just been P.A. Worked. If my lame joke didn’t give it away, this is another one of P.A. Work’s works (what an odd sentence).
