A Maiko is a culturally rich art and connoisseurship of Japan, and as the anime suggests, especially of Kyoto. Then honestly, why not focus on what it entails to actually be one?
Pfft.. That was the failure of this OVA. It only mentioned in a passing glance that Maikos are culturally rich assets, but never bothered showing a Maiko's life.

Story 4/10
This show is about 3 girls who want to become Maikos. And it's just about their friendship.

Art 7/10
Still crowds and subtle movements, but pretty and detailed backgrounds. The setting is good. There's a show at the end, but I'd have preferred more, esp. read more

A random watch of mine that felt like a waste of time but to be honest better then expected.

This is a 1 episode short story that follows 3 girls as they practice and strive to become Maikos. The show covers what the girls do to practice and do while they are getting ready for an upcoming festival.

The charcters are a nice bunch of teenage girls, there superior Maikos, and elderly teachers. They are all well designed and easy to like.

The music consists mostly of a piano that plays calmly during the show to set a perfect mood.

Art is nice and average. It is nothing spectacular read more

TL;DR The anime is too short to make any real impact

Mitsuwano is a story of three young Geisha apprentices (called Maiko), Riko, Midori and Mai, partaking in an upcoming festival. Being only one episode long (about 30 minutes), it is really a condensed version of something that could easily run a full season.

Opting for a one episode OVA, the pacing is rather fast. It unfortunately skips a lot of character development. How did the three meet? How did they become such close friends? What was their back stories? Too bad none of these were explored in any details. read more
