This is ironically one of my favorite anime. I tried my best to be unbiased in the review though. I also reviewed as a short, not as a full anime

Plot: 7/10

Hakone-chan has a bit more plot than the typically short, with the conflict spanning over several episodes and the story moving forward.

This is my first review so don't judge me :3

Art: The art is pretty.

Sound: The sound is good and accompanies the Anime pretty good.

The concept of onsen spirits is fun, and the subtle way ...
