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. I know I'm very glad I did.

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 in order. I really enjoyed this.

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 anything new to the table.
Then again there are always people seeing this type of humor for the first time and I don't blame them for laughing out loud. But looking through reactions,it's actually blowing my mind that people are finding this funny.
Either this guy has been left back 10 years, or he's in special education. I wonder if he still gets to go to the bath with his younger sister (Whoops, see how it's already fucking me up?), I mean older sister considering his age. It makes me sick just thinking about it.
If it isn't trying to pull off jokes it continues to drag on with the everyday lives of these two siblings. I remember this one scene where the older sister stands in front of the school vending machine for about a minute or so talking about how milk is going to make her taller.
It'd be really funny if it turns out he wasn't 11 years old and retarded after all and it was just some elaborate cover for... something I don't know. Just try and make me laugh.
The guy would be like: "I am your father."
The girl would be like: "Whut?"
But in all seriousness...

Overall this anime just gives me that uncomfortable feeling as it tries feebly to break my poker face. Thank goodness it's three minutes...
That's another thing... They really have to stop doing these three minute long shorts. They're not revolutionizing the field of anime story telling and definitely not contributing. It's a waste of time and resources, by resources I mean money, electricity, and the oxygen the people who make this consume.
Give the same pen, ink, and computer to people who really want to do something and you'll have something infinitely better than this anime.
This is proof that people can't think of something better to make an anime about... No effort at all.
No matter how short an anime is, I'd rather take the time slowly eating a whole delicious pizza and risk rupturing my stomach than take a teaspoon of defecation. Time flies then I watch good anime, time slows when I watch this... read more

Firstly, the story is unique. A tall and amature 11 years old who has a short and mature 17 years old sister getting into troubles. But thats about it for the first episode and i believe most of the future episodes because it is a 3-minute anime. The bad thing of a 3-minute anime is the difficulty to tell story but the good thing about it is that it can deliver the punchline and keep viewers interested in the series.
The art and sound are decent, reminding me alot of morita-san. In fact, they made a cameo in the first episode. As mentioned before, the characters are unique but the tall 11 years old boy sort of freaks me out a bit but i think i would get used to it. The humour are enjoyable and it is a relaxing anime to watch. I would recommend it for short breaks in between work to relieve some stress. And of course overall, i find it a decent anime and be sure to catch it if you like such anime. read more

I guess it's worth taking a look if you have nothing better to do. Everything else in the anime is pretty decent/good, if only the episodes were longer it would get a higher score from me.

The first episode was quite funny, it made me laugh here and there. But I didn't like that it only lasted three minutes. You know, I was like, "oh wow, I'm ready for a 24-minute episode full of fun', and then it ended! You should have seen my face, I bet it was priceless.
So, all in all I'll say that I'm waiting for the next episode. This thing is interesting and funny, and I recommend 'Recorder...' to those, who like comedies and don't have too much free time. read more

The concept in itself is original but there is of course some cliche ideas tossed out that anyone could come up with off the top of there head. Yes a big running gag is the older looking brother is around any girl his actual age he ends up being hauled off to the cops but its still funny. Just cause the show has some predictability does not mean it is boring or stale. It is so compact and well paced that it is hard to get too much of it.
The Voice cast is wonderfully cast featuring some of the more popular voice actors of today. The Ending theme is also a sweet little melody i can enjoy as the show wraps up. I did take notice of some unusual sound effects that remind me more of cartoons than anime but i still thought they were enjoyable. The art itself is done very well with some pretty close attention to details in a few areas. On par or better to any full length anime series this series does not fall short on production or casting value.
The humor is mildy crude at tune bur is also fairly tame for the possible subject matter.The sister does not provide nearly as much humor as the brother with her air of maturity but she is adorable. This show was made with this balance in mind to give it this odd feel that really boosts the humor. The remaining cast is actually very humerus from the teachers,school mates and even the unemployed next door neighbor.
I think if you enjoy laughing or just jokes in general then you will love this show. read more

The concept is simple, but pretty hilarious. We have an 11-year old boy who looks like an adult, and a 17-year old sister who looks like an elementary schooler. When I read this, I was surprised and intrigued in how they were going to bring out this idea. The answer is simple: Misunderstandings on top of more misunderstandings. The best thing about this is that the characters still act their age, and as for the smaller sister, that's all right. But for an adult-looking elementary schooler, it leads to quite some interesting moments. Every small episode focuses on a particular scene or two, each having one of the main characters in another (awkward) situation. And if you're into that stuff, it's quite enjoyable. After all, with only 2,5 minutes per episode (not counting the ED), there's really nothing to lose either.
The art is quite average, but it's not bad. You can't really compare it to actual animes, but for what it's worth, it's good enough. The animation is decent, and strangely enough pretty good at some points, where the art also gets a small boost. The faces can look a teeny bit awkward from time to time, but there are no real flaws. The sound is pretty much the same, just your average set of BGM music, with the exclusion of an OP, but including a (short) ED.
As for the characters, we have the main two, Atsushi (brother) and Atsumi (sister), and for side characters, we've got a trio of elementary schoolers (2 boys and a girl), a high schooler who's Atsumi's best friend, and some adult side characters, including an unemployed neighbor. The casting isn't that big, but for a 3-min anime, it's more than enough to work with. All the characters are pretty flat, as in they don't really develop over time other than the two main characters. Nevertheless, they're fun and interesting, which for most is enough to work with.
In conclusion, like I said before, this is an anime you should watch inbetween animes. When you're bored of your regular anime, and just want something to switch gears a little. An entire season of this only lasts about 1,5 episode of an actual anime, so there's no real reason not to watch the entire thing. It doesn't feel rushed either, as each episode feels more or less like a scene from the 4-koma manga (compared to Mangirl, which tends to make me feel like I'm on a sugar high). It's quick, fun, and easy to follow. Just the whole concept is interesting enough to give at least one episode a try, even if it's something you're normally not into. "A Slice of Life anime with a fun little twist" is probably the best way to summarize it, and even if it's just for the whole idea itself, just give it a go. It's the best way to take a break from all the serious stuff, and just relax a bit. It did the trick for me, so perhaps it'll be a nice breather for you as well. read more

Although Atsushi is only 11 years old he has a hot body. I also love how Take is one of those people who you wont see his face that kinda cracks me up.
Though the one thing is that I wish the episodes were a little bit longer.
