The story follows Benio "Haikara-san" Hanamura, who lost her mother when she was very young and has been raised by her father, a high-ranking official in the Japanese army. As a result, she has grown into a tomboy—contrary to traditional Japanese notions of femininity, she studies kendo, drinks sake, dresses in often outlandish-looking Western fashions instead of the traditional kimono, and is not as interested in housework as she is in literature. She also rejects the idea of arranged marriages and believes in a woman's right to a career and to marry for love.

The first time I heard of Haikara-san ga Tooru was when I saw a clip on youtube and realized I needed to watch the anime movie. I'm not sure why this is such an underrated anime movie but I hope if you give it a try, you enjoy it as much as I did.

The story is about a "modern Japanese girl" with a tomboy-ish personality who discovers that she has an arranged marriage set up with a guy she met (and didn't like) prior. After this, she tries different things to get out of the arranged marriage and... ill let you watch the rest ...

This underrated movie is a half-gem with the first half being real and the second half being fake. The first movie was a great movie but it lost all of its potentials during the second movie. In short - they destroyed their own unique story with cheesy Shoujo Drama.

This is like when you fall in love with a girl, dated, but then before you fucked her you somehow realized that she has aids.

It's also quite a bit of a surprise that this strikes a resemblance to Violet Evergarden. It is set in a historical war, there's the "lost the one you loved" cliche, ...

Let me ask you: Have you ever heard of an old manga called Haikara-san ga Tooru? Yeah, me either. Not until this, at least. Anyway, the original manga by Waki Yamato, which ran from 1975 to 1977, actually had a bit of a rough history with animation. It was adapted into a TV series from 1978 to 1979 and received 42 episodes. It was apparently supposed to be longer, but from what I've heard, it got cancelled due to low ratings, and as a result, the anime had to end in a different way than the manga. Ever since then, it just sort of faded ...
