Based on Naka Fukamachi's illustration book, Fukamachi Naka Gashou Honobono Log ~Taisetsu na Kimi e~. The anime offers hearwarming peeks at the lives of close couples and families.
For only two minutes per episode, this anime hits hard. Honobono log offers little snippets of everyday life for us to experience through the eyes of the characters. Thinking retrospectively these small moment are beautiful and hits home when you are least expecting it. Completely underwhelming at times, but every now and again you can clearly see the beauty of the events.
This was an interesting watch and rate due to the lack of actual time in the show. I would have to say that, after watching a lot of romantic anime and Slice of Life anime, it didn't deliver on a lot. The main problem is that it is really hard to do much with 2 minute clips of 10 different relationships. The characters are cute in the show and it does reflect different aspects of a relationship / family attributes, yet there isn't any real plot development. There wasn't much substance though, and awkward pauses sometimes between lines that were offputing in this show. There wasn't much sound except for the opener (which also happens to be the closer) and some talking so... kind of hard to give it a high rating. The animation was decent but nothing that left me in jaw dropping stage. Overall, this show was mediocore, yet good enough to at least give a watch if you enjoy romantic shorts.

Honobono Log is very cute, but that's kind of it really. Each new 2 minute episode tells a different story, which is both its strength and weakness. On the one hand, it means that the stories individually are done very well, you don't get very bored, and if you don't like a set of characters, it doesn't matter, as they'll be gone by the next episode. On the other hand, you can't really get attached to any of the characters, and your favourite characters will be gone by the next episode. I know there were a couple of stories I'd have liked to see a bit more of. The animation is very minimalistic as well, which I thought worked well with this. When there's not much going on in the background, you can really focus on the story. If you're after a bit of cuteness to relax to, or want something to watch without having to really thinking about it, then this would be perfect for you. If you like a bit more of a running story, however, or at least the same characters every episodes, try something else. Review for February 2017 DAMC
