Tired of her rural home, recent college graduate Yoshino Koharu is desperate to lead a more exciting life in Tokyo. After a fruitless job hunt, she finally receives a part-time offer as queen of the bizarre "Kingdom of Chupakabura," a rundown mini-attraction in the small agricultural town of Manoyama. However, Yoshino discovers upon her arrival in Manoyama that she was mistaken for a celebrity and the job offer was a mistake. Left with no other options, Yoshino reluctantly agrees to take on the role and aid the Board of Tourism in their efforts to revitalize Manoyama. Determined to bring excitement to the dying town with the help of local residents, the queen enacts a series of projects to highlight the beauty and charm of Manoyama's culture.

Sakura Quest delves into the story of a tight-knit community that is struggling to balance change while also maintaining the rich traditions and bonds which define their identity.

Sakura Quest is a great watch. It isn't something to be looked up upon as the greatest at what it does, but for what it's worth. It was an enjoyable experience that had emotion. Character interactions were fun and seeing Yoshino build this town up with the help of her friends was cute. Might not be up there with the likes of Hyouka or Violet Evergarden, but it's still something I love dearly.

Soundtrack is something calm for a show of this type. OP's and ED's are great as well. A good lil slice of life tale of friends helping out a small little town.

Mixed Feelings
I watched Sakura Quest. Here are my thoughts:

Sakura Quest is a 25-episode show that is mainly focused on the efforts of various civic employees working to promote commerce in a small rural-Japan town and restore its tourism industry. The show is fairly self-aware and is clearly meant to be a social commentary in some ways. Although it is genre tagged as a slice of life, it usually felt more like a drama to me, albeit a slow-paced and not overly emotional one.

I liked the main female characters in this. They were all relatable in various ways and felt like real human beings. Much of my ...

Frankly speaking this anime is not a good choice to watch on your free time.
When I was watching this anime all I keep seeing is the same pattern where trouble appears and the characters trying to solve it. It's pretty plain and boring to be honest. I don't know how to elaborate more on this anime since it doesn't leave me with a big impression or anything. The ending is super meh since it feels like one of those generic shounen end where "Our fight have just begun" kind of feel. For me it doesn't have a clear cut to it, just like in life ...
