Hanasaku Iroha Episode 12 – A Step in the Right Direction

Hanasaku Iroha Hanairo ABC Blooming Satsuki mother Ohana

Like mother like daughter...

With all of the problems I had with the previous episode, it was certainly a pleasant break for me to see that this episode made great strides towards correcting a lot of the flaws that popped up before. Ohana starts to reflect on her actions and learns from them as well. We also get a glimpse into the past and into this strange little love pentagon that’s forming between Ohana, Minchi, Tohru, Koichi, and the girl from the bookstore.

Do it LA Noire style and I’ll be a happy camper.

The reason I watch this anime

I’m almost scared by how much loli they shove into this show and that makes the fact that I’m currently enjoying this more than Deadman Wonderland a pity. It had an interesting premise- but between a horrible main lead, crappy animation, and a snooze-inducing story, there isn’t much to like. And I’m trying to like Deadman Wonderland.
