Quick first impressions – Hanasaku Iroha

Basically, my first impressions of this anime upon watching the 1st episode can be summed in three words – I LOVE THIS.

In a nutshell, this is something of a coming of age anime. Ohana Matsumae has yet to decide on her future and ends up working on her grandmother’s onsen ryokan.

First of all, I love the visuals of the anime. The visuals of are just refreshing. I especially loved Ohana’s train ride part of the episode where the gorgeous background visuals reflect her feelings. The animation is very good too!

The music is awesome, it gives that relaxed indie feel. The OP theme gives that relaxing, upbeat feel. Even the BGM is refreshing to listen to.

The thing that I really like about it the most is the story. A story of a young girl starting to learn what life really is and what to do with her future. The story feels like its real life. I’ve come to love Ohana’s character very much.

This anime is a potential top contender to be one of the best anime this spring block. I suggest you watch it dear reader.
