"Hanamaru Kindergarten" is a short comedy/anime-series directed by Seiji Mizushima year 2010. This series only lasted for 12 episodes.
Basic plot: After graduation, Naozumi Tsuchida gets a job as a teacher in the titular kindergarten, where he falls in love with the beautiful Nanako Yamamoto. On the other side Anzu, one of the children attending the kindergarten, falls in love with Tsuchida and tries to attract his attention, and vows to marry him when she grows up.
Exactly just like I wrote in my review for "Mahoraba: Heartful Days", this series is a somewhat cute anime-series, and it's humor is fine too. One of the funniest moments ever in this series takes place when some of the children attempt to do some synchronized swimming in front of Tsuchida.
I'm NOT gonna give away any ending spoilers, but the only thing which ruined this series was the ending which just seemed to be rushed. I wanted to give this series a rating of around 7-8, but the ending made me to give this a 6 instead. With the exception of this, I somewhat found this to be an OK entertaining anime show. I can eventually recommend this for any viewer who like to watch cute drama/comedy/anime series generally.
A few other works by Seiji Mizushima to name include "Slayers Next", "Shaman King" and "Fullmetal Alchemist".
