April New Series Preview: Hana-Saku Iroha

It’s almost April and there is only one or two weeks before the airing of the new series this Spring. Have you decided which to follow now? Hana-Saku Iroha (花咲くいろは) is one of my most expected series of the coming season. Not only because of the story itself, but also the characters. Ohana Matsumae (松前 緒花), the female protagonist, voiced by one of my favorite CV Kanae Itou (伊藤 かな恵) who also behind the female protagonists (Neris and the other) of Shining Hearts.

Hana-Saku Iroha

The story: Ohana Matsumae is sent to live with her grandmother, who she has never met nor spoken to, at her Taisho-era (1920s) hot springs inn. It’s not a lifestyle that Ohana would have chosen, but she decides not to be discouraged and to make the most of her new circumstances.
