Well, what can I say....this is about as simple as an anime can get.
Unfortunately, the reason I think this anime failed surprisingly enough was because of the half-assed attempt to make a story/plot out of this.
IMO, it would have been better to have 12 episodes of slice of life romance or comedy or something other than this.
It made little sense and too often it was boring.
The girls (whatever their names are) where a big problem as well.
They had ZERO personality, ZERO intrigue, and they literally did nothing.
I loved the art, the setting, and the music was pretty good too, however the problems I listed above were too much.
5/10, I'm going to be generous because even though it was boring.....it really didn't do anything terrible it's biggest problems were the lack of interest and depth.

Where the hell is Mistral? Seriously. The only reason I bothered with this show is because I wanted to see how Yukarin would voice Mistral. What the hell was Production IG thinking? This incompetent trash can't even be called an adaptation of an already bad game. They wasted a bunch of money on this, and they don't even have the fan-favorite girl show up? Jeez. The only thing decent about this show were the character designs by Tony Taka. That's it.
I was so waiting for Misty as well!!! ;____;

It wasn't really bad though, for me. What made me stay in this anime was the slice of life portion. That's it, no plot, but the characters are pretty much interesting and seeing how their relationship grows. (no BS, SOL is my fave genre)
Still, i didn't get bored with it, good show.

Character design and artwork were good. Of the characters I think Xiao-Mei was the star. She just had personality unlike most of the others. Hank comes in second. Kerberos/Queen third...
Dylan was the cool Bro type but even that cliche didn't really add to this.
Of the main three heroines, Amil almost got there as she actually seemed concerned by Rick's troubles.
Ultimately what ruined it for me was the near lack of anything actually progressing story wise when Xiao-mei or Hank weren't there. Half of the episodes involved showing each of the girls reactions (near identical facial expressions which are so inexplicably annoying that... Ahem.) by slowly panning over each of them or, even worse, the dreaded flashbacks; showing a 30 second long flashback of something that only happened 5 minutes ago does not help what's left of my sanity.
4/10 - at the very least there was enough of a plot to keep me watching to the end.

Initially I expected this anime to be a lot better and even patiently waited for all the bread talk to end but it didn't. Alright, bread is fine, whatever- so the plot will be good, right? Nope. There were barely fights and those that were shown, were brief and anticlimactic. So maybe explain a little bit about the different dimensions thing or maybe tell us something about the protagonists' past? Nah, screw that and let's just continue making some bread.
If it weren't for Amil and Dylan's seiyuu (Sena and Zoro respectively) I would've given this show an even lower rating than 6.

I don't know why people keep commenting that this show was boring, not enjoyable, or that it had a terrible plot.
For one thing, it's based off a game, so they had to jump around a bit with the story and couldn't include everything that happened without going for 50+ episodes.
Also, it seems that people were expecting some big action packed story with loads of character development and an intense plotline, that's not what it is. (It's your own fault if you expected something more from this than a peaceful show, featuring beautiful art and a calming story. Where you feel like you don't have to worry about anything)
This show was MEANT to be a calm series that made the viewer feel relaxed. It was one of those shows that isn't meant to have much happening, but it's still enjoyable seeing their everyday life. It makes you feel happy.
Sure, they took a wrong turn at the end by transforming into an action anime for a bit. But if they just continued on as the previous episodes were, there would have been so many questions left unanswered.
I just think that people went into this show expecting more than what it was, and then shitting on it because it didn't meet their tastes.
I'm sure there are many people, like myself, that loved this show because we watched it for what it intended to be; a nice tale from the island of Wyndaria, about Rick and his friends baking bread for the townspeople and enjoying everyday life.

Very great episode !!! .. "Understand and you shall be wise" . to make a "new path" that is :D
Shining Hearts : shiawase no pan . was a beautiful , enjoyable and amusing anime for me ~ !!
As the name suggest "Bread of Happiness" , It expresses or interprets the happiness in which , you'll found on yourself through the deluxe of time and the leisure in doing what you're happy the most . What I notice and praise greatly on this anime is it's state-of-the-art animation that amaze to even making me blush because of it's lovely lines and artistic designs . The characters is what makes the anime more intriguing as It fascinated my eyes , bewitched by it's art and the atmosphere that relaxes my body with their disposition so charming and bright . Although , It has a lack of "simplicity" as it makes the audience bewildered on the changing of mood (being a great slice-of-life toning from the start it then engraves on being an action-fantasy as it was it's real genres .. so I don't know why they done that but they did a good job nevertheless .), It is in fact (I hope) , made it astounding to watch because of the harmonious shifting that the plot directs .
I really had hope for romance , which I think , will perfectly blend on the show as It surely will make the anime more eye-catching to gape at . It also has little humor compared to it's drama .
I wish for a sequel with the more captivating art of course . nonetheless , It was worthy of my praises ~ .
