Hanasaku Iroha 25

Hanasaku Iroha

If you’re not gonna save this inn, then I will!

Surprisingly, Nakocchi was the surprise heroine of this arc. If it wasn’t for her feelings about Kissuisou being conveyed out strongly, I guess the inn would’ve imploded on itself (honestly, buffet-style meals?!). Quite unexpected since it would usually be Ohana doing it, but hey this was nice too!

Heck, even Mom of the Year came back and actually helped out with the inn. Least she could do I guess, since it’s almost mostly her fault www. Made for a nice screenshot opportunity too!

Shijima women sure are strong.

So… now with the danger of Kissuisou being shut down averted, that’s probably most of the drama. One more episode to nicely wrap up Ohana x Kou I guess, and enough time for an epilogue of sorts too. Hopefully we’ll get a proper nano;RIPE song ending too. This episode’s hymn-ish ED theme felt rather out of place lol.

    Takako’s Bright Slap was easily my favorite part.

    They’d better give us at least one shot of Nako and Mizuno together.

    I’ve had this sneaky suspicion that the old hag is gonna bite it at the end (that’s how it should end since they’ve been dishing out hints about her health through the whole show…I mean, you don’t display something big like that unless it takes a major role toward the end it’s simple Shakespeare rules.)

    Ohana’s mom….what a babe.

    I agree with you, this series became a BIG FUCK YOU in the last episodes. I gave up in episode 23… so, unless something good happnes in the last episode, this will be a BIG FUCK YOU.
