Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan – Fanservice Review Episodes 08 – 13

hakone eps 08 - 13 cover 01

Where do trolls go after an anime show ends?  Or are they too busy making the next anime show to troll ecchi fans with???


Ecchi fans got trolled.  No doubt about it.  Check out the all too brief onsen scene of a one-off ghost girl of all things in episode 09 and then it’s just cute girls playing at drama until the end…

Episode 08

Episode 09

Very brief onsen scene.  Of a ghost girl more than anything else.  Too brief and not close enough and not as good as the onsen scene in episode 02.  Shame…

Episode 10

The beginning of the final story arc.  Can tell already.  Way too much plot and not enough PLOT.  Miya is really cute though…

Episode 11

Mc-kun really should just give in and say yes to Miya.  She’s crushing on him so badly.  But then Haruna gets really jealous…

Episode 13

And the creators must have run out of money…  Too rushed.  Too many stills.  Too much timeline for a short anime show.  Too much plot.  Not enough PLOT.  But at least it’s over and we got to see adult Hakone-chan one more time.  With an adult Miya as an added bonus.

Best Girl

Candidates in order of appearance:

And the winner is….

Hard to resist a well built onee-san miko girl!  But all the main girls were cute.  Except the scary little spirit girl with twin tails…

Official Art

Are we getting trolled on official art too?  I couldn’t find any new posters or HD  official art so Haruna wins once again.

This is not the mildly ecchi show we were looking for.  Move along now…

Oh how we got trolled by episodes 01 and 02…  I can’t recommend this show for ecchi fans.  Did like the cute character designs, especially Haruna, and I had fun making stitches.  But it looks like Komori-san Can’t Decline! was actually the more ecchi of the anime shorts this season.  Go figure…
