So much negativity about the 1st season in this thread. Personally, I thought it was a nice bit of fresh air from the usual slice-of-life genre. I'm set for a sequel and hope it turns out well.


I agree, I was actually able to keep watching this show. Slice of life shows usually end up boring me at some point, I thought Hanasaku was, as you said, a bit of fresh air.

Don't know about everyone else, but I'm extremely excited for this. I really enjoyed the first season.

Well i just ifnished this series the other day, and I can agree with many when I say, you know I didn't really think I'd like it, it didn't have a premise that I thought I'd like, but the characters are so lovable and memorable I quickly fell in love with the show. The ending, as some have said was a bit anticlimactic, but I'm not sure how they could have done it any differently. I would love to see a few years after, with a couple of the characters, probably not all of them, but I'm not sure if a sequel would make it any better or not.

Cool, whatever it turns out to be, I'll watch it for sure. :)
