Tsuchida, a recent graduate, is starting his first job as a kindergarten teacher at Hanamaru Kindergarten. On his way to school, he runs into a little girl named Anzu who thinks that Tsuchida is hitting on her. While this is not the case, it's only later he finds out that Anzu is the daughter of Sakura, a girl he knew in high school. Anzu is taking the flirting thing very seriously, saying that she intends to become Tsuchida's wife. Her mother is completely fine with the idea.

The series focuses on the day to day adventures of Anzu and her friends, Hiiragi and Koume, as well as the rest of the class and teachers at Hanamaru Kindergarten.

Based on the manga by Yuto and produced by Gainax, the series aired in the winter 2009/2010 season.

Tropes in Hanamaru Kindergarten include:

 Tsuchida: Are we getting naked as soon as I get home?

Anzu: My parents are like this all the time!

Tsuchida (with an appropriate expression): Eh? Sakura-senpai? and sensei?

  • Totem Pole Trench: In the fourth ending, "Yamamoto" turns out to be Anzu, Hiiragi and Koume standing on top of each other.
  • Tsundere: Tsuchida's sister, Satsuki
  • Un Entendre: See Anzu's misunderstanding in Pre Meeting above.
  • Unwanted Harem: Played with. Before starting his job Tsuchida fantasizes about having a whole school worth of teachers after him. He does end up with multiple characters wanting to marry him. They're all kindergartners.
  • Wacky Homeroom
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Hiiragi, who's pretty smart for a kindergartener.
  • Yakuza: Hinagiku's father is the head of one, though he's rather nice. and Hinagiku's more in control of the "family" than he is.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Yamamoto-sensei. Hinagiku claims she will become one (using the exact phrase.)
