We often look at movie spin-offs as unnecessary, thoughtless, and maybe even a little bit greedy. Do we really need another addition to an already concluded story? Not usually. There's an undeniable sense of indifference whenever we hear that a spin-off movie has been greenlit, and who can blame us when "movie" often simply means "bad adaptation with a couple new scenes".

Hanasaku Iroha: Home Sweet Home is not one of those movies, but do still keep your expectations in check before digging in. Most of what was frustrating about the main series remains here.

Every once and awhile, people like to dig up the past. By the past, I mean going through an old photo album, book, or anything that might bring back a bit of nostalgia. It’s not unusual when people feel a bit of sentimentality because memories are important. You can’t buy it. You can’t steal it. And for a certain young girl, these memories are like a treasure that comes once in a lifetime.

I saw in a movie theater in Shinjuku (WALD9) just yesterday.
My expectation wasn't very high; I knew that the movie duration wasn't too long (66 min), and I knew that the story wasn't a simple continuation from the last episode of the TV series. I thought if it was mildly entertaining that would be enough.

I was wrong.

Animation art direction was P.A. Works at its best. It captures well the good scenes from Yunosagi (largely based on the real Yuwaku Onsen town).

The story was surprisingly good and actually quite emotionally moving; never thought it could be that good. Music was the familiar read more

Why is Hanasaku Iroha: Home Sweet Home so good?

I was disappointed when I heard the movie was 66 minutes. Like seriously, a film in 66 minutes is weird. Hanasaku Iroha, the TV show, is a masterful telling of the stories. Okada Mari is one of the best series composers out there. From her masterful work in Aquarion EVOL to AnoHana, she has somehow weaved all the spaghetti noodles of plot and characters into this wonderful bolognese of a strong anime. PA Works is one of the better studios, even more so than the legendary Kyoto Animation. Yes, PA read more
