Hanasaku Iroha 16

I really wanted to write about Hanasaku Iroha 16 and 17 together as it’s a two part episode where both of them go hand and hand, but Doki is having translator issues right now. They only have 16 episodes subbed. And they’re the only sub I want to use. At this point, it seems better […]

I feel you Ohana. If I ever find my  name in real life, it's always misspelled.

While not as bad as last week, storms and losing internet continue to be a problem. And there are more storms tonight.  Lovely. Episode 15 is an absolute delight. It seeks to wrap up episode 14 of course, but is definitely superior to it’s previous episode. Probably because there was a lot more actual things […]


Oh Doki. I love you, but your fansubbing for this show has been sporadic. This time two episodes were release within days of each other, with a promise of subs being released on Monday. This in the end is good news. It took me a bit to get to them as for Fourth of July […]


I apologize for this being late. I’m very picky when it comes to fansubs for this show, I only want to watch Doki’s fansubs. I didn’t want to write my episode 11 post as I was sure 12 was going to released any moment, just for Hanasaku Iroha to be late this week. But here […]

I apologize for my absence from blogging Hanasaku Iroha. I’d been busy with preparing for a con. But I’m back to continue the blogging of Hanasaku Iroha. Through episode 6-9, the show in my opinion has been getting better. Well, episode 6 was kinda a bust, though a bust with cool outfits, but after that […]


This episode was strange. I had a hard time getting into it because the beginning was so awful, I’d try to watch, give up, try to watch, give up. Yet once I got past the beginning, the episode had moments that actually had the feel of the first and second episode. Yet, when this episode […]

I’m still enjoying the series, but the charm of the first two episodes appears to be gone. Instead, Hanasaku Iroha seems to going down the path of a typical slice-of-life/drama series, although one with gorgeous art. On the plus side, the story also continues to move forward at a decent rate, helping to keep the […]

About two fairly heavy episodes, the third installment of Hanasaku Iroha gives us a more light-hearted and typical for the slice of life genre episode. As I really didn’t want to see anything bad of a sexual nature happen to Ohana, and that would have been the other way for things to go, I didn’t […]

Within a few minutes, we learn that Ohana’s mom is even more terrible then she seemed in the first episode. Well, not exactly terrible. She’s more of a self-centered and negligent mother who appears to rearrange her life to make room for her daughter’s needs. What she says to her daughter is harsh, and she’s […]


You know the really hot girl in the promo art? She’s dead within the first episode. We can go home now.
