Hanasaku Iroha’s upcoming sequel entitled “Home Sweet Home” will be a film, and it shall debut this year – no further information is available for the time being, yet the series’ fourth manga volume has confirmed as much.
With no other details as of now, one can do no more than speculate – for one, a few will find disbelief in that “Home Sweet Home” is a film versus an OVA, or a second season of the TV series. Being a film however, arrival of several obvious and generic questions ensues – the greatest of which being what the movie will entitle. This will be the first time P.A. Works makes a film based off a series they’ve produced – and this means a two hour or so escapade of “festing it up”, and all other manner of memorable Ohana antics.
The film could take the route of foundations laid, but never developed, in the TV series – such as the inheritance of the inn. No matter, we’ll merely have to wait and see what spectacle on the so-called “big screen” that our main character cast of highschool girls will experience.
