Hanasaku Iroha: Blossoms for Tomorrow (2011 IMDb)

Categorization

Cutesy slice of life.

Subject

A Tokyo girl is sent to her grandmother's old-fashioned inn, and learns the ropes while going to school in a comparatively small tourist resort.

Commentary

Episode 3 is offensively exploitative, without traditional fan service, of which there is plenty later on. Some good comedy, a little drama, but it's mainly just relaxing. Halfway through idly marathoning the second half on Crunchyroll, I accidentally deleted a folder full of scripts I was writing (“rm kcdb ” instead of “rm kcdb”). It's a testament to the calming effect of the series that I did not scream.
