Hana-Saku Iroha

AniDB wrote:* An original project produced as the P.A. Works studio's tenth anniversary work.

The story revolves around 16 year-old Matsumae Ohana, who begins working at a hot spring inn. Like most girls her age, she hopes and dreams of the future.


The name can be translated as "How to bloom a flower" - and it describes this piece well. Just a story of a young blooming girl. Slice of life / Daily drama.

This is somewhat reductive. The title is a word play that's lost in translation, and could be translated as "The colours of the blooming" (this is pretty much explained on the anime's site).
Iroha is the traditional ordering of the japanese syllabary, now overseeded by more modern criteria, and comes from a poem (the Iroha, in fact), which has a peculiar characteristic: it's written by using every traditional syllable of the japanese language and each only one time.
However iroha can also be transliterated as "iro wa/ha", thus obtaining "hana-saku iro wa/ha", where "iro" obviously stands for colour.
The intent of the authors was to use a metaphor with the blooming in the title to represent the maturation of the main character (o-hana, 緒花, "start/beginning/first flower"): just like flowers, originally just buds, change colour upon blooming, ohana too will mature and change her own "colours." :wink:

Anyway, really nifty show, would recommend. :up:

Last episode was a bit weird, ep 3 if you have seen =P
Though I still can't wait for more! Definitely turning out to be one of my favourites and I have only seen 3 out of.. like how many episodes 26? or something to come.. if it really is 26 I hope it doesn't get boring and repetitive... D'=

Still going on strong with this one! However, I am expecting something really bad to happen it seems way to happily going on if you know what I mean. Everyone has a problem then its fixed so fast... really like it though might end up in my top 10 favourite animes.
