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

The story was rather simple, but average. It's about an elementary student who looks like a high school student, and his sister who is a high school student, but looks like an elementary student. In all honesty, I disliked this idea at first, but after some time I got used to it and along with the jokes about that, like, misapprehensions, it was actually pretty cool. It's basically a normal school comedy, which includes that particular element, which makes the story so unique, at least from what I seen, because I've never heard about an idea like that before.
The art was great, but it definitely isn't something that astounding that it will leave you totally speechless. Same goes to the animation. It's pretty decent, but nothing really special. Luckily, even the character art is great, since in some certain animes, the character art was truly disturbing. I barely remember the music, which is why I'll merge it's paragraph with the art and animation paragraph to have one in decent length, and besides, art and sound are pretty identical. The sound wasn't disturbing, but if it was really great, I'd remember that. The ending themes were pretty decent, as well as the voice actor choices. I don't have really much to say about that, though.
Regardless of Atsushi and Atsumi, which have botch unnatural appearances for their age, the characters were pretty decent. There were many characters, but all of them had a pretty unique personality which are all hilarious in various ways. Sayo loves Atsushi, Take-nii doesn't find a job, Tetsuya and Takumi are rather normal but try to fool Atsuhi at the right occasion, Futami is Atsushi's teacher who brings her in awkward situations every time they meet, and Hina is just a regular class mate of Atsushi, but that's all I remember right now, and I think those are all. Some of them could need a little bit more development, but hey, the other unique personalities despite the missing elaboration, ware actually pretty cool to me.
For an anime with such short episodes, it entertained me thoroughly quite well. The mini-episodes did meet their purpose perfectly. It's deepening the watcher into the mini-stories, occasionally make them laugh (although it could be just me; I have a pretty weird sense of humor) and convey exactly the right feeling to the watcher. They invented various, unique and creative concepts for each episode as well, which is great. I felt like the episode titles should be shown sometimes a little bit earlier, though. Overall, I definitely enjoyed watching this series, but I'd recommend watching everything at once or at least many episodes at once, since it always feels strange when you watch it again because of the odd main conception.
This is definitely a good anime and does it job excellently for an anime with mini-episodes. If you feel like killing some time, this is exactly what you search. It's decent in all aspects, and definitely hilarious, too, unless it doesn't accord your humor which I could absolutely understand, but to me it's nonetheless a good show, and I look forward to the third season which will be aired this summer. Anyways, here are the scores:
Overall: 31/50 = 6.20/10 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.

I enjoyed it but I didn't find it HILARIOUS, it's a pretty simple and warm humor that makes you smile and that's what makes it nice. I'll be waiting for the next episode.

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

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.
