I reviewed all 26 episodes of Hanasaku Iroha, and called it the second best anime of 2011 (at the time) and a masterpiece. So obviously I was excited today when news broke that we’ll be getting something new next year. Now it could be an OVA or a new series, but I’m thinking it’s a new series. The ending was left open, my only hope for a new anime is that it takes place a few years in the future. I want to see an older Ohana. Whatever it is I’ll be reviewing it, so come back next year.
