I really wanted to write about Hanasaku Iroha 16 and 17 together as it’s a two part episode where both of them go hand and hand, but Doki is having translator issues right now. They only have 16 episodes subbed. And they’re the only sub I want to use. At this point, it seems better just to go ahead and post.
The main problem with episode 16 is there’s not much to say about it. The inn decides to invest in a deal that I don’t understand the business side of where they’ll let the inn be in a film. All the parts of the episode that actually pertained to the movie left me with a nagging feeling that I’d seen this all before.
