Rin Suzune is a nine-year-old girl who, due to her parents' deaths, lives alone and runs her family's restaurant by herself. Since she is a child, she lacks the proper knowledge to cook good food and manage a business, so her attempts to make money are unsuccessful. To make matters worse, she is bullied in school for being poor! But through it all, Rin remains resilient. Although her restaurant's food is not the greatest, local residents are drawn to the establishment, hoping to lend Rin a hand because of her sincere nature.

just gonna make it short
"Comedy & Slice of Life" a combination of a deep-cut emotion tactics.'' yup. yup indeed this anime pulled my heartstrings many times i feel so toucheedd~~~

"Depression the animation" is what this series should have been named.

The anime is depressing, I saw this by chance on a random website so I thought I would see what it is about because the poster made it appear like a light-hearted slice of life but after reading the description I knew that the genres written on it were fake, this anime is so depressing that it made me tear up in some episodes specially episode 4 which was just too depressing.

The characters are great in the anime specially the MC who is just a poor girl yet so well-mannered that she gave money she read more

This is my first time to write a review for MAL. I'm giving my first review for this anime that made me feel good and enjoyed. I will make it simple as possible.

Hitorigurashi no Shougakusei tells a story about the little girl whose living her life without parents as she only keep running a restaurant business. The main character is bad in cooking, but her attitude makes the people attract to her restaurant at the same time. People may judge her social role (she's somehow poor wearing teared clothes), however it's not a hindrance for her. Other people around sometimes help her.

A great use of your time.

Each episode is 3 minutes and the whole thing amounts to 30.

It's quick, sweet, and righteous.

The biggest value of it in my opinion comes from the magnificent example of noteworthy humanitarian conduct that are found in every episode. Every single character is ultimately portrayed to be a good person. Making you feel like the whole world is full of wonderful people.

This anime shows us a world where even though life may not be fair and problems arise from time to time; things always work out in the end, and good things always come to those who are read more
