Do you know what’s really wired? This anime follows the exact plot of k-on, it just has different characters and a dance club (they are both written by the same person).
In k-on the girls are trying to make a band so that why can enter a rock contest.
In Hanayamata the girls create a dance club so that they can enter a dance contest.
The managed to achieve its goal making each of the girls endearing thanks to their hardships/misunderstandings. Each of the girls learns a lesson about life in their own special ways, this helps to strengthen team spirit and the bond of friendship/trust that is needed to dance in front of hundreds of people.
^-o It’s nice to watch cute endearing anime in order to break up the depressing story driven shows released each season (I need some slow fluff once in a while).
