MVM entertainment have annopunced  via twitter and their website that they wil be releasing the 2011 coming-of-age series Hanasaku Iroha.

When asked on their twitter, MVM confirmed that the licence for the series will only cover the 12 episode series (which will be released in 2 parts on Bluray only). When asked about the 2013 movie, Hanasaku Iroha: Home Sweet Home, they stated that "We'll wait to see how well it does first before looking into the movie."


Hanasaku Iroha centers around Ohana Matsumae, a 16-year-old living in Tokyo, who is left in the care of her estranged grandmother, following her mother's elopement with her boyfriend. Ohana arrives at her grandmother's country estate to realize she is the owner of a Taishō period hot spring inn called Kissuisō. She begins working at Kissuisō at her grandmother's request, but finds herself at odds with many employees and customers at the inn. Initially feeling discouraged, she decides to use her circumstances as an opportunity to change herself for the better and to make amends with her deteriorating relationship with the Kissuisō's staff for a more prominent future.
