16-year old Ohana doesn't know what she wants and wishes she could be somewhere else other than Tokyo. Suddenly, her mother elopes with a boyfriend, sending Ohana to the countryside to work at a hot springs inn, Kissuiso. However, Ohana soon gets into trouble with colleagues and customers. Discouraged at first, she decides to change herself.

Life at Kissuiso turns out to be much more exciting than living in Tokyo, from starring in an action movie to getting kidnapped by a pervert. Slowly but surely, Ohana starts to find her direction in life.

Bursting with youth and nostalgia, Hanasaku Iroha aired in the Spring and Summer Seasons 2011 at 21 episodes. PA Works' tenth anniversary project, Hanasaku Iroha has breathtaking animation, story and seiyuus. Hanasaku Iroha means 'The ABCs of Blooming', so Kishida Mel's sentimental character designs were perfect for this beautiful anime.
