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. The first five episodes focus heavily on the initial problem of Hakone-chan getting her power back, but beyond this point, the story becomes more loose and less focused. A plot returns around the last few episodes, where the series tries to be more serious as opposed to the primary comedy aspect it carries. read more

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

Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan is a cute and new 3 minutes Anime who presents some of that "Onsen" in Japan. It is funny and has cute character design and an interesting story.

Story: It's pretty easy to understand it and tell somebody about it.

Art: The art is pretty.

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

Character: In my opinion the character design is pretty cute for girls.

Enjoyment: I really enjoyed this Anime and read more

But as far as i can tell it's not suppose to be serious or anything. Going into this i expected nothing and with that said i can safely say that this show is mean't to be watched in a light hearted manner. It's cute, funny and has a pretty decent art style.

It put's cliches and generics into short lovable episodes that are very entertaining to watch, they're around 3 minutes each so it's not read more
