told myself this is going to be one of the watchable series of the season (LOL DOG DAYS)

and after watching episode 1

dam this is one of those series that are going to deliver, hopefully it doesn't fail later

not gonna lie though i got pretty pissed watching little girl get slapped like that

also the sudden forced situation of being sent off to a place comparable to child labour + hostile environment, really provoked something outta me

guess its cuz i felt like i been there before and i never wanna go back :3

but def recommend for anyone who has yet to check it out, probably the best show of the season

You can always go to 2ch yourself and ask... Though I think they don't allow people with non-JP IPs to post.

I enjoyed [episode 1 of] the anime a lot more than the manga due to how they portrait the characters.

Ohana got spunk (the non-bitchy kind, how rare is that!). The couple of droplets and the yelling of frustration at the end gave a lot more character emotional depth than what other anime fail to do in an entire arc. I also had a favorable impression of Kou (despite a somewhat lackluster exit), but he progressed quite fast (in terms of anime speed) and also very honest. Aside from that though, the other characters were quite boring (I had high hopes for Nako too ).

Should be interesting to see the characters continue to develop though
Spoiler for minor speculation:
Here's hoping plot will not disappoint.

Not exceedingly so! But, due to that being my favorite character type, I may very well be biased!

The Animation was simply superb, the first episode was well paced and the it left me with a nice impression wanting for more, this is one type of anime that i was hungry for, i'm getting bored from harem,ero,fanservice,battle based anime's ,so this one, Hana-Saku Irona is an oasis in the middle of the desert , i hope that the show mantains this quality.
Ohana's pretty likeable , the other ones were kind of "Meh" but i think that it was because this episode is only the pilote episod which introduces the characters and after this one the characters will develop.

Ok, maybe the glasses are a bit different, so I might be mixing two guys. Still...they COULD do a better job of distinguishing the characters via the drawings!

some of you guys have the uncle and the other guy mixed up. and the grandma is such a bitch. sorry for my profanity, but it's the only way i can describe her relationship with the granddaughter. if the character of the grandma doesn't change her atittude towards the granddaughter anytime soon, i'll drop this and continue onto something else. it's pretty obvious the grandma is taking her anger out on the granddaughter just because of the mom.

What "other guy?" I think he was shown once, now that I realize my mistake.

Patience. I've seen so many anime that I can already see the trajectory this one is going to go, assuming things turn ok. I kind of knew the grandma wasn't throwing candy. I thought she was going to toss a brick or a heavy pack or something. As for being mean...come on. Use your imagination. The two will grow into each other...to some extent. It's all part of character development. Growing and maturing through relationships and hardships.

The grandma would be pointless if she were mean/cruel for the whole series. If this were a true television drama series, she'd get killed off for not having any point. But she will. I'm sure of it.

Just my $0.02. April is finals study month. In between reviewing material and prepping, I'm going to watch this along with a few new/old series.

I have to agree with him. The grandmother already is being considerate by taking Ohana in as an employee even though she disowned her mother and obviously doesn't have any [outward] feelings towards her. She's being strict because Ohana's just another person to her, but I feel like they'll definitely settle into a familial relationship, even if it takes until the end of the series and the grandmother remains tsundere strict.

The one who I felt annoyed by is the girl who kept telling her to "die."
That really isn't something you should say to anyone, much less someone who was recently abandoned by her single parent to run off with some guy.

The Grandmother will warm up to her eventually (and I honestly though she gained some respect for her granddaughter when she demanded to be punished as well), so I have no real beef with her.

All of the above said, I'm very impressed by the show, so I'll definitely be watching.

you make it sound like i lack imagination. of course their relationship is going to develop into something considering the genre type of this anime, but the problem is how long will it take it to happen since this is most likely a one course. i have a feeling they are going to drag it out until the very end (like episode 11).

This is basically a Victorian novel, except it's interesting and has better characters. The writing is surprisingly good, so I doubt it'll develop a creepy obsession with arbitrarily torturing its cast. Could be one of the best shows this season.
