By her uncle’s request, Nanako is an ordinary high school girl who teams up with her upperclassman Yukari to become their town’s local idols.

Together, the two form the "locodol" group Nagarekawa Girls.
Both series center around the protagonist getting more than they bargained for when they get caught up in being the representative of a small town trying to revive its tourism economy.

So both these long shows i loved it all the way through. And i want more of them, Its hard to find two shows that have =made me cry like they have. I even stopped watching Sakura Quest for the last 4 ep just so it wouldn't end. IDK what to say about the shows but if you want to watch then you should. This is the first review of a show i have watched, as it really impacted me as a person. I even want to do what happened in the Sakura Quest. I love how in both shows the ark of the characters left me wanting so much more.

His recently-deceased father's udon restaurant is now closed, and the house Souta and his sister grew up in stands empty. Ridden with guilt over disappointing his father, Souta is beginning to doubt the choices he's made in life thus far. While trying to figure out how he should move forward, he meets what appears to be a small boy sleeping in one of his father's old kitchen pots, but who turns out to be a shape-shifting tanuki! Cute, playful and full of energy, Souta names him Poco and the two develop a strong bond. But now he faces a conundrum: should he quit his job in Tokyo and remain in the countryside, or will he again leave his childhood home in favor of the big city, leaving Poco all alone?

Due to unusual circumstances they end up back in a rural community and are not particularly happy about it, but they find themselves growing and changing in positive ways as they adjust to their new environment.
