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

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

This anime had me laughing and it's a great break from all that heavy arc-filled animes. Sure, my favorite animes are definitely the ones with the best storylines that just make you want more. But, this anime didn't falter in making me want to watch it.

The art is ok, not too shabby. And the sound is fine. The characters are interesting and I like the idea of having an adult-looking kid, even if it was completely bogus.

So, if you're on break or just want to relax, try this anime. Each episode is only about 3 minutes long and you can watch any episode 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

Three minutes per episode, random comedy, school environment, a bit of romance, lolis, busty teachers.
Short animations, school environment, funny misunderstandings.
Tall girl and short boy, Romance comedy
Both are 3-minute long comedy series, and Morita herself does a cameo in the first episode of Recorder to Randoseru.
Fuuka from Yoiko is also in elementary school but looks far older than she is, like Atsushi from Recorder to Randsel.
Both animes 2-5 minutes, about characters with something else in your body. But both are fun.
