One episode in, and I can tell this is going to be an anime I will rush to watch.

The episodes are extremely short but pack in so much humour that you'll wish there was much more.

The story rotates around a young boy Atsushi aged 11, and his sister Atsumi aged 17. Due to the height and appearance of each, it would be easy to mistake the boy for the older adult which leads to very humorous situations.
Simple everyday scenarios become impossible for Atsushi as even walking together with friends to school becomes, lets say difficult.

Honestly if you have three minutes, I seriously recommend watching. read more

I don't know about the other reviews, but I don't find this funny. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is funny, Mitsudomoe is funny, Nichijou is funny, Kimi to boku is funny, 4 Koma Kill Me Baby is funny, but this is not funny.

The story is about a elementary schooler who looks like a full grown adult and his older sister who looks like a little girl who goes to high school.

This is a stroke of genius ladies and gentlemen(?)

The jokes aren't that well written and I have a feeling this anime is going to pull every molester joke in the book, I highly doubt it'll bring read more

I honestly like the concept of an elementary school student who looks like a high school student while his sister looks like an elementary school student. The first few episodes were cute, but then it started becoming cliché. I also don't understand how the adults could be so stupid. They notice Atsushi when he interacts with his young female friend but fail to notice that he takes the same route with him? No one tells anyone that he is a big boy? Despite having interesting art and sound, it fell short towards the end. On the plus side, it is a quick watch. Thus why read more

AHHAHA. This anime is so hilarious. Its mainly about a boy who is 11 years old, he is super tall for his age, roughly around 180 centimeters, and his voice is SO deep as if he hit puberty. He also has a sister who's only 137 centimeters tall and is only 17 years old, which makes the anime funny. Sad thing though about the anime is that the boy still acts like a little kid, which adults may mistakenly take him as an adult man who is a pedophile toward kids. Very warm humorous anime.

Anime: Morita-san wa Mukuchi.
Both are 3-minute long comedy series, and Morita herself does a cameo in the first episode of Recorder to Randoseru. 
reportRecommended by ZettaiRyouiki
Anime: Yoiko
Fuuka from Yoiko is also in elementary school but looks far older than she is, like Atsushi from Recorder to Randsel.

Anime: Cyclops Shoujo Saipuu
Both animes 2-5 minutes, about characters with something else in your body. But both are fun.
