Cherry blossom season has arrived and that means it’s time for a dangerous viewing party.
What They Say:
The series revolves around Sayuri Satō, the new front desk worker at the Sparrow’s Hotel — “the closest hotel to Heaven.” Her special features are her large breasts and her skills of assassination. She takes down people who cause trouble in the business hotel with those skills, but she is in fact very unskilled when talking to the male hotel manager, and often bites her tongue.

Life in the hotel continues on and we see ways in which Sayuri uses her skills and abilities to make it a good place. Including hauling in some good sized cherry trees so they can have a good atmosphere there, even if it does cause a lot of extra cleaning work thta she’s all too able to deal with. There’s some cute bits with this before it shifts to a viewing party that the staff head out on but even that just shows Sayuri’s skills in a different way, as well as how she’s kind of just disconnected from how normal people do things, which of course is a recurring theme.
With the show still having that low rent feeling to it both in humor and animation, there isn’t a real improvement over the second episode, but it’s still slowed down properly since the too busy first episode. Sayuri’s skills are always the highlight, though there are some sharp barbs tossed out by the manager from time to time to other staff members. The hotel is one that definitely has some quirks to it and Sayuri does admittedly fit in rather well, especially when she works to ensure that the entrance is kept polite and proper. The use of her abilities comes into play regularly here and it is comical at times, but never laugh out loud funny.
