Moe Dance Group: Hanayamata

Hey all, sorry for not posting anything yesterday, school work was a mess.

Originated from an ongoing manga. The anime aired for a short 12 episodes.

The reason why I decided to pick up the show is because of the character design, its just great, its wonderful. Its been a long time since Madhouse last did such a show, so I decided to give it a try. It was pretty decent, the story was pretty low, but the moe just kept me going. Most of the time the story doesn’t really make much sense but the cuteness and fluffiness keeps me going to completing the show. The character interactions and development is great. The ending is pretty much a typical read the source material ending, but the ride was worthwhile. Its so rewatch worthy. Overall, its just a moe overload show, probably my most moe show for awhile. Yoshida Reiko’s script never disappoints.

Animations by Madhouse. Character designs were fantastic. Backgrounds were beautiful. Watching this show in bluray will be a mindblower.

Music is great. OP and ED was just sweet. BGMs were well-composed to fit the yosakoi setting.

Cast list is pretty epic. Ueda Reina, Tanaka Minami, Okuno Kaya, Otsubo Yuka, Numakura Manami, Toyoguchi Megumi, Ueda Yuji, Takahashi Chiaki. The main 5 cast were pretty newbie back then, but they were great.


Story: 8/10

Art: 8.5/10

Music: 8/10

VAs: 8.5/10

Recommended for all moe blobs.
