Having gone from pampered to poor after the bankruptcy of her father's company, Youko Nishikawa struggles to drop her princess-like persona and make friends at her all-girls high school. One day, while eating alone in a nearby forest, she has a chance encounter with Futaba Odagiri, the super-energetic transfer student, and Teru Hayama, an innocent-looking girl with a surprisingly direct and sometimes mean personality. Despite their differing personalities, the three girls who all have the kanji for "leaf" in their name begin an unlikely friendship as they try to navigate through an amusing and spontaneous adventure known as high school life.

Sansha Sanyou is a cheerful, cute series revolving around three close but very different friends as they try to balance the everyday challenges that school and adolescence have to offer.

Sansha Sanyou is an amusing slice-of-life comedy, revolving around Odagiri (the genki glutton), Hayama (a slightly sociopathic animal-lover), and Nishikawa (the former Ojousama).

It has a very pure anime categorization:
- Moe: present (due to Nishikawa)
- Comedy: good
- Drama: nearly none
- Action: none
- Romance: none
- Harem: none
- Ecchi: none

Mixed Feelings
Well, it's just like any other cute girls doing cute things anime. However, unlike some of the bad ones, it is interesting enough to not feel that bored while watching. However, it doesn't bring much else to the table, it's just a show that classifies as worthy of wasting your time with. It's truly nothing special at all.

The characters are pretty likable, I was especially fond of the rich-turned-poor girl, the servant and the maid. The girl that was kinda dark on the inside was interesting as well. If I had to say something though, it's that I really didn't like the sister of the ...

Preliminary (4/12 eps)
This is just so uninteresting and unfunny.

I don't understand the sort small cult following this anime has, it's practically the opposite of entertaining. The characters are terrible, not necessarily generic but something about them is just so vanilla-y, they have enough traits to stand out from their typical archetype yet I feel like I've seen these exact types in literally hundreds of other anime that are a lot better.

I especially hated Teru, every moment with her was just dreadful. Sometimes I did laugh at her bitchiness but other times I just wanted to punch her in the face.

I barely even remember the other two, the ...
