A delightful slice of life anime
31 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This slice of life anime is set is rural Japan far from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo; life is quiet there. There are only five children at the school and they attend the same class despite being very different ages. The series begins on Hotaru Ichijo's first day at the school; having transferred from Tokyo she finds it all rather different. She soon fits in though and starts to enjoy the different pace of rural life.

Over the course of the series the Hotaru and her new friends; sisters Natsumi and Komari Koshigaya and first year Renge do various things, frequently involving their teacher Kazuho, who happens to be Renge's sister and young woman who runs the local sweet shop. These aren't madcap adventures just the sort of thing one might expect youngsters to do.

This series was an utter delight; the humour was very gentle with nothing whatsoever to offend. The characters are for the most part entirely believable. The fact that the humour is so gentle doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of genuine laugh out loud moments. The animation looks good and the backgrounds are stunning; perfectly capturing the rural setting. Overall I'd recommend this series to any fans of the slice of life genre; it was great.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
