9-year-old girl Rin from Enoshima Island who due to her parents' death lives alone, goes to school, and tries to keep running the family restaurant by herself (the restaurant is on the 1st floor of the home). Since she is a child, it is a constant financial loss. The quality of food is really poor and she herself cannot afford clothing items such as a winter coat or an umbrella or a t-shirt to replace the one she wears covered in patches. Her sincere genki attitude draws in people around her who aim to help her be successful.
what i think about the anime:
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~~~
and animes like one is really hard to find, theres no harem, ecchi, romance, action and junk
and i have a weakness for slice of life genres xD
the story centers around the little girl named rin its pretty much about how her daily life as a poor girl she got no powers she aint a mahou shoujo shes just a poor girl who lives by herself
art: the art is fine ig
because it doesnt look like a childs drawing and i cant even draw lol and it fits with the storyline too like i cant imagine a better artstyle can fit with this story.
i like the opening and ending music its pleasant to hear :D
ok now the characters are great they have developments through like they try to help rin and their not just as some treated as background characters which i think is really charming
YES I ENJOYED IT, IT WAS TOUCHING AND MAKES ME FEEL LIKE IM GONNA DO MY BEST like i feel so motivated maybe its because of the fact that she has nothing and while me actually has stuff that i can brag off ( its like when my parents are like you should treat your things with much care, poor people cant even have them)
"Depression the animation" is what this series should have been named.
The anime is depressing, I saw this by chance on Kissanime 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 well-mannered that she gave money she found on the
streets to a police officer instead of taking it for herself.
The sound is very good, the VAs have done a great job ,the opening song and ending song are very nice and the very few soundtracks are well-fitting.
The art is good I guess, it seems like the anime has an extremely low budget but it still looks good.
Overall I give this a 10/10.
Would definitely recommend it to everyone.
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.
The story is original. It's tagged as comedy, but the real thing is, it is completely depressing if you think about the main character living alone with her life. Some episodes are funny and some of them are heartwarming. I do not have a complaint about the story. I like it so much!
The art is quite relaxing because it is very simple. The animation background looks amazing as I Imagine myself living in a countryside place. A 3-minute video is not bad at all. Character designs are well-drawn, in the contrary, it's lacking of movements if you try to observe it.
The sound is good even they only show a short glimpse of opening song.
The characters are very realistic, it totally happens in real life. They have their own personality. I like them because they are funny and memorable. I won't forget them.
Like what I have said, I love this anime so much. Easy high score!
Try watching this anime and you will not regret it. It's short so you can finish it quickly. I definitely recommend it if you want to watch a heartwarming slice-of-life anime.

This is a really good show in my opinion, if you like sort of that older more heartwarming sort of slice of life sort of like Aria and all that, you'd probably like Hitorigurashi no Shougakusei.
As of right now (December 12, 2017) it's only available on Tate Anime's app which is in Japanese only. You've either got to be in Japan or trick either Google Play or the App Store into thinking you're in Japan to obtain the app. I heard there's some Russian subtitles out now or something, so hopefully there'll be English subtitles out soon.
It's slice of life, so the stories are just tidbits of stuff that goes on. The overall theme is people helping out the main character Rin since she lives alone.
The art is weird, it's the best I've seen for any anime on the Tate Anime app, but it's not like it's all that great. I'd say the art is pretty good, but the motion and animation is limited or something like that. Also it's upright video since it's Tate Anime, so that's a bit weird, but they did well with it.
The opening theme is pretty good in my opinion. They played this one song at the very end that was even better, but I can't figure out how to find it. The mix of voices overall works well, and the background sound and effects are all good.
I dunno, I really liked all the characters. The main character Rin especially was a really chill character. There's a few supporting characters throughout the show who are neat as well.
Super chill, I'm definitely going to watch this again when subs come out.
Yeah, this anime is pretty chill, I'd advise you at least check it out if you like slice of life. If you're learning Japanese, it's actually sort of a cool show to watch without subtitles cause I'm at a basic level and I could pick up a surprising amount of the things going on.
This is my first review, I'm really surprised how much I wrote, so I hope it's helpful. I just saw this had no review and thought somebody's got to write one.
