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 read more

"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 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.

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.
