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.

There's just something about "cute girls doing cute things" that keeps dragging me back every season. I know it's overdone and I sometimes want to avoid the genre but I can use Sansha Sanyou as an example of why it keeps dragging me back every season.

There's basically no difference between this show compared to hundreds of moe shows out there. If you ask me why I keep watching shows like this, the only answer I would give to you is "I have no idea. I just enjoy the slice of life, cute girls doing cute things show".

This show is focused on three very ...

If you're looking for a lighthearted moe slice of life, Sansha Sanyou is totally worth a try!

This anime is focused on Yoko, a rich girl that suddenly became poor after his father's business went bankrupt, now she lives alone and goes to a normal school, but her way to be after all that years makes her have a hard time making friends.

Thankfully, she meets Odagiri Futaba, an active girl that eats a lot, and Teru Hayama, a girl that looks really calm but is actually pretty scary when she wants, and soon after they become friends.

This is Sansha Sanyou, a calm and funny slice of ...

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 ...
