Once every now and then, we get comedic showstoppers that does what it needs to do: entertain. I’ve seen a lot of comedy shows in the past few years and believe me, Hinamatsuri belongs in a category of its own. It’s entertaining not just on the level of being able to make me laugh but also able to capture the magic of what comedy really is about. It’s only 12 episodes but manages to make an addicting impression.

As a fan of the manga, delightful is just one of many words that came to mind when I heard about the adaptation. The manga contains over 70+ ...

Back when I first started Hinamatsuri in the midst of other shows for the Spring season Hinamatsuri felt different. Compared to the others, it pulled me in and in a different way too. In the first five minutes I was slightly taken aback by the artstyle but when I continued watching it, it hit me with it's wonder. Hinamatsuri is exactly that kind of anime, and it continued to be so till it's end, it calms you down, then immediately rushes out with the comedy and before you know it, you're laughing out loud. Oh and there are tons of heartfelt moments too, what more ...

What makes a great comedy anime?

Preliminary (4/12 eps)
A lot of comedy anime are based on formulas. Here is a premise. Here are jokes that arise from that premise. Basic sitcom stuff. Hinamatsuri takes these fundamentals and grows them to reach a much higher form of comedic storytelling.

First the Fundamentals of Comedic Storytelling

It should first and foremost be stated that humor is subjective. Though this doesn’t mean that there are not techniques used to craft jokes. Just because the jokes do not land for everyone doesn’t make them not jokes. This can make it hard to discuss comedy. If we disregard everything as subjective, the ability to have a conversation is lost, so ...

Hinamatsuri is an anime about this Yakuza-bro who is totally a badass. He meets this weird alien girl AND THEN THEY FUCK. Oh wait, wrong series. And then they become something like "friends" or "family", and instead of developing as characters they rather start a trip to self-discovery and find new sides within themselves, but also from each others. Pretty neat.

My favorite part of this series is Hina. Her whole presence radiates disinterest. Whenever she does anything, it comes off as a combination of curiosity and not giving a fuck. For example, even when she is impressed she be like "woah", but also, "meh". This ...

Kept waiting for something to happen.

This show is fairly easy to watch and there are some moments that will make you laugh.
Overall though nothing really happened. You would think a show about girls with telekinetic powers and some shadowy organization would have more violence, fights or anything really.
Instead you are treated to 12 episodes of Hina wanting food and lazing about. Nitta caring for and often complaining about Hina. Ansu's life as a homeless teen (which was probably the most interesting part of the show) and finally Hitomi working in Nitta's favorite bar and occasionally helping Hina or Ansu.

This show is very episodic, with ...

A diamond in the rough, very funny and innovative story blend with a can't be better context for a comedy that stand out from the normal highschool rom com superpower stuff. Also the show includes some real life situation and even able to make gags out of it while doing the educational stuff at the same time. The art is nice although it's liek they are catching up with the new flashing style of A place further than the universe and Yuru camp, but the character design is funny, fressh and hillarious as well. Absolutely a must watch for this season.

Hinamatsuri begins with a problematic setup that justifies property damage, violence, throwing money to spoil little girls, with a narrative that asserts that a patriarch is necessary to control women who can't control themselves. It is a mildly funny skit comedy, provided that you accept the terms of this premise, that it is perfectly normal for girls to throw temper tantrums, while at the end of the day, men have to take care of them. Which is some backwards misogynistic crap that insults modern senses. Some people characterize Hinamatsuri as "feminist", but this only makes sense if little girls who throw their weight around in ...

Its been a while since I found a comedy anime/tv show that really made me laugh out loud and at the same time made me go into tears.

One of the best comedy anime I ve seen, with an incredible and unexpected slice of life


So whats Hinamatsuri about?

Well its about many things actually, three main girls with each one of them with really different personalities surrounded by a lot of intersting characters

Hina a girl with incredible psychic powers that suddenly crash in the apartment of a yakuza member ...

Sometimes you are better off leaving your expectations low and not getting enraptured into something too quickly. For someone that has watched a lot of television and film, I still haven’t broken the habit of brushing my cynicism aside when I see something exceptionally well made. Whether it be the first episode of Kill la Kill, which is vibrant, eccentric, and perfectly paced, or the hook in Nichijou, as we witness a well-known anime cliché get upturned in its opening sequence, setting lofty expectations for the series. The point here is, when a show gives you everything in its opening, you either buy into ...

I really did not expect to like this anime so much. I saw a funny meme on fb which lead me to this anime and I really enjoyed watching Hinamatsuri. It is not an anime that will make you laugh all the time but it does keep a smile on your face throughout.
Some moments were predictable, but that's what makes it funny. The story embraces all the cliche moments that you see in an anime. It makes those moments funnier. There were also some heartwarming moments which almost made me cry.
So as a conclusion I can say that anyone can watch this anime even ...

This Spring 2018 season, we are given sequels of popular shows that ever aired on the anime community. From My Hero Academia 3, Tokyo Ghoul:re, Steins;Gate 0, High School DxD Hero to SAO Alternative GGO (even tho its a spin-off). Then we are blessed with Romantic-comedy segmented shows like Wotakoi, Tada-kun and 3D-Kanojo Girl. Of course this are not the only anime the aired this season. There are countless of them as well as leftovers from the last season which is Winter 2018. However, despite of many choices of anime to watch, there is one lacking the season without this genre. The "Comedy" genre. Sure, ...

TLDR: Hina is a fun and bubbly anime which focuses on unique experiences in unique circumstances. It's a funny side watch that doesn't focus on the sci-fi tag, but centralises on the interactions of random individuals. You're at the right place if you want a nice watch that will brighten your day, even if it's by a little.

Hinamatsuri's story isn't spectacular, but something that develops at a nice pace and is enjoyable. While the anime doesn't particularly explain the context of the story (pre-Hina appearance), any need for this closure is ...

Just so that we are clear: Nitta thought Hina was a dude, even though he had a full-frontal look at her unclothed body.

……seems legit.

Anime comedies never seem to tickle my “funny bone” the way The Simpsons did in its heyday (circa 1991-1999). While there are notable exceptions (i.e. One Punch Man and Gintama), the vast majority fall under the zany category of school-aged hijinks. To distinguish itself from the heard, Hinamatsuri throws in girls with psychic powers, who, for the most part, use them to generate obscure situations for the purposes of setting up the proverbial punch line. And while a handful ...

I came to this show expecting a silly show about psychokinetic girls and yakuza members getting up to mischief, but I left with a lot more than I was expecting.
This is my first MAL review, and it will contain *spoilers*!

The show starts off as a normal enough comedy, with great animation and well designed characters. The gags are quick and funny, and never failed to make me laugh. The infamous 'fight scene' from the second episode and the ever brilliant 'girly club' scene are particularly great. But as the show expands, it not only maintains its comedy and writing, but also touches on themes ...

Hinamatsuri! My 100th anime completed ! I found out about this anime through a youtube video from Sydsnap around when I completed by 90th anime or so. Scrolling about this anime , I already knew it was going to be good. If you watched a lot of anime you can already tell an anime is going to be good even before watching it. So I saved this anime for my 100th special.

And to no surprise it was amazing. The comedic parts of this anime is so fresh and sometimes subtle. It never gets boring and repetitive like a lot of the comedy anime ...

Hinamatsuri comes off as a jumbled mess that doesn't really know what it wants to be.

the first episode set me up to this action, sci-fi, adventure to find out the origins of Hina and what she wanted with Earth and how her being under the care of this Yakuza member would change both of their lives, and it all went down hill from there.

as the show progresses, it seems like more of those initial characteristics drop off in favor or a vanilla, saccharine slice of life with one dimensional characters. all the characters lack meaningful depth and replaced it with one noted shticks, ...

Hinamatsuri, or what other people call it anzumatsuri. This show was definitely a welcome surprise to me. It's a show that doesn't necessarily do anything out of the ordinary, but does it well. It has nice quirky jokes hear and there and its a real feel-good anime. If you do watch this, I can guarantee you will have that creepy smile on your face all the way through. It's jokes are very innocent and wholesome.

I didn't think there were any stand out character designs or music in the show, but they all played a part in the anime. I hope for season 2, they ...

What an overrated mess of an anime. A comedy where almost all jokes rely entirely on wit with no satisfying punchline. A touching slice of life which is usually compromised by tasteless jokes that ruin the emotional moments with a big middle finger to its audience. A gimmicky psyche powers anime which said gimmick's only purpose for existing is to serve occasional jokes which almost never impact the overall story whatsoever, seriously, you could have taken out the powers aspect and had the kids be orphans who never knew their parents and little would change regarding the character arcs we see. This series tried to ...

I fell in love with this anime. Hinamatsuri is a real masterpiece, from the start to the end. First of all, i just loved how things happen fluently, the plot and its cohesion just don't fail. If the previous events would take the next episode to a sad episode of a funny one, it just happens, the concern with the plot is the priority of the series, and is makes everything happen naturally, taking us to all kinds of episodes, and every of them very emotional, beautiful, funny or cute. The fact is that in the end of each episode you will love it for ...
