Episode four of Hanasaku Iroha once again defies excellent and goes beyond that. Ohana starts school in her new life for the first time, and while becoming introduced with her classmates, she runs into the grand-daughter of another competing inn owner. A bit later, a certain conversation is overheard during lunch and the story just takes the gold this season and flies off with it. The episode ends with a major cliffhanger and I’m dying to see what happens next.
