Not to mention cute girls! So this time the work element is tourism, right? It's got five girls out to reinvigorate a countryside town.

Synopsis

In order to revitalize the "mini independent nation" that was completely abandoned after creating a movement during the Bubble Economy, five girls, by a stroke of luck, become our main characters. They go from nothing, to being inaugurated as the Queens (Angels of Sightseeing), and will have to spend the next year working their butts off.

Three Episode Impression

Take a step into the shoes of fellow Yoshino Koharu, where she gets stuck in Manoyama for a job as the ‘Queen’ for a year. At first, she yearns to go back to Tokyo to find a new job, but after getting turned down by a lot of companies, she eventually accepts her fate to be stuck in the small town. The plot starts when she learns that the small town is struggling. It’s up to her and a few others to save this town and make it popular once again! Will she able to succeed this ‘quest’?

This show is very interesting from its cast of characters to the plot. It centers around, and is focused on, the tourism industry. At first, I thought this show was going to be a heavily comedy centered anime, but after watching 3 episodes of it, I can start to see its appeal. It really shows you what a person has to go through or do to make a town popular again. It’s definitely worth watching! It kind of reminds me of Sket Dance in a way.
