We’ve had the token boob anime, the popular franchise ripoff, the bland shounen, the dreaded 4-koma adaptation, the Shaft, the sequel to that show you’ve been meaning to watch since forever, and the anime that starts off promising but devolves into wacky harem hijinks and completely loses sight of what made people like it in […]
So hey, let’s talk Hanasaku Iroha. Hanasaku Iroha is a 26 episode s’life drama about a bunch of teenage girls with incredibly poor listening abilities working in an inn as waitresses while trying to overcome their crippling urge to yell at everything that they don’t immediately understand.

Wow, what a great new season! This is way better than the winter season or the summer season from last year. Err, I mean, what a crap season. There’s only one or two things I’m interested in watching. Anime is going downhill, time to get through my backlog. Err, wait, which song sheet am I […]
