SynopsisThe everyday lives of the Minami sisters continue. Chiaki, the youngest, continues to call people idiots while worshipping her eldest sister. Kana, the middle, still can't figure out that Fujioka's feelings for her are a crush, not a grudge. Haruka, the eldest, still unknowingly avoids Hosaka's advances to invite her to the volleyball team, and after a long day of excitement, the sisters enjoy sitting at the table at their home.

Characters & Voice Actors
You may wonder, "How does an anime with no plot at all even manage to get four seasons?". Its from the great job it does portraying wacky situations and giving off great humor from them. This is one of my favorite slice of life animes and one of the more popular ones.
This is the fourth season of minami-ke and the best by far. Minami-ke is about the daily lives of the three sisters Chiaki, Kana and Haruka. It's one of those series that just gives you a warm feeling and puts a smile on your face.
Overall - 9/10
This season is the best out of all of them and it truly shows. The story is nothing too extravagant, just the daily lives of the three girls and their hilarious life. The art is great and does a great job in adding emotion and adding cute details here and there. The opening and endings are my favorites and do a great job "opening and closing" the anime. Overall this season is wonderful and will not be a waste of your time!
Story - 8/10
The story is the same as always, following the three sisters and their daily lives with their friends and the situations they get into. The anime has no real plot, yet it still brings out the humor and joy between the characters and their lives.
Art - 9/10
The art in this season is nothing less than great. The characters are all drawn nice and you can see improvement from the first season. All the details are very clean and give a nice touch to the style and warmth of the anime that it gives off. Even during the wacky interactions between the characters the art does a perfect job giving off the emotion and humor that they go through. The quality was perfect the entire series and never did drop.
Sound - 10/10
I personally loved the soundtrack that the anime has. The opening is by far one of my favorites and does a really good job building excitement for the episode. The ending is also one of favorites and does a really good job ending off and gives you that feeling of joy when listening to it. The voice acting is always spot on and the actors do a really good job portraying the characters and lets their personalities shine to the fullest. The background music was always there to back up the events they got themselves into and always fit the mood that the anime was giving off.
Character - 10/10
The characters are the best part of the season and probably the best part of the entire anime. The three sisters are the same as always and still give off the same humor as always. The side characters get a lot more air time giving off more humor and a lot more interaction between the entire group.
You have "Mako-chan" still trying to hang out with Haruka, but trying to show hes a boy. He does a really great job adding humor in parts where there normally wouldn't be any.
Hosaka is probably one of my favorite side characters and as always hes dreaming of Haruka. He never fails to make me laugh with his outbursts of laughter making people misunderstand him.
Touma and her family also does a excellent job meshing in naturally with the mood of anime. Haruka and Natsuki's interactions are always funny and never drop in quality. Fujioka and Akria's interactions due misunderstanding is hilarious and always makes me tear due to laughter with the misconceptions that Fujioka has towards Akira and Kana.
Enjoyment - 9/10
This is by far my favorite season and the best in the anime. It always kept me entertained and did a great job showing all the hilarious interactions between the entire cast. The opening and endings are my favorite of the entire series and you can see all the work they put into them. The art is nothing less than spectacular and did a wonderful job fitting the mood and showing little details here and there. I would recommend anyone who just wants to enjoy a genuine slice of life, and does a great job continuing the last few seasons. read more
Minami ke- A show I had never known about before this season but I just plunged through all the seasons and watched. Why? It was amazing.
Tis is mostly geared to people who havent watched minami ke series yet cuz if you hve, you dont need a review to watch it
Rating Overall- 9.4
Ok. The minami ke series deserves a 10 in my book. Except that I wish it were longer so I can laugh for so 9.
Every episode is comedy and absolute joy. For example, I broke my thumb and got water in my eye. I was feeling awful and minami ke just cheered me up. Got to say, this is like awesome medicine:P for sadness to joy.
Every charaters is unique, likable and help you enjoy and laugh with their trooubles. THe thre protagonists, the sisters, each represent a different sector of people ranging for responsible, intelligent, and clueless(KANA COUGH). Even the least likable of charactrs (KANA) prove themselves with kind deeds and help you relate and at least bear with them
Brilliant art and sound. The music is great and I listen to op, end everytime. Animation is fluid and amazing too. IT really brings out the comedy
THis can bring me to laughter in seconds, just looking at the characters interact brings me joy. rewatching is also great cuz everything is just so amazing
It totally deserves a 10, but it is just so good that because I know it will end is bringing me sadness.
Honestly, you should watch this season if you watched the previous, or if not, watch the first season to be introduced to the characters and watch the rest of the seasons (doesnt have to be in order)
Funny story, so I watched the first season then skipped to Okaeri(season 3 meaning Im back) instead of Okawari(season 2 meaning seconds) but it still fit and was amazing. Basically, watch the minami ke series, it rivals Boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai and kore wa zombie desu ka in terms of comedy
I personally almost didnt watch this because of the description (three girls and their daily lives) cuz honestly, it sounds pretty lame. However, this is like the greatest of comedies, with a dash of romance and others to make it even funnier. Especially the suitors after the protagonist, now they are epic (FUJIOKA KUN!!!)
REMINDER: WATCH FIRST SEASON IF YOU HAVENT< OTHERWISE WATCH THIS ... ITS EPIC (NO kidding)
Thanks for reading, I hope I encouraged you to watch this. Its great for like all audiences cuz seriously, who doesnt need comedy? read more
How can they make countless sequels without being Dragon Ball or Pokemon? By being genuinely funny and stay true to the audience, of course.
Anime revenue comes a lot from ads, but a lot more from DVD, Blu Ray, and even miscellaneous goods like figurine (not the case with this two though). This two show release constant stream of stuff that are, guaranteed, to have some niche buying their DVDs. No marketing magic here, just being constant and know your own niche.
Beside similarities that are marketing-related, stuffs like THE FEEL IS SIMILAR, THEY BOTH HAVE GIRLS IN IT, are being repeated for eternity in recommendation area so I shall refrain from doing so.
both anime have cute girls who go to a school and they;re both the 4th season of an anime i like and might be the best seasons of each
While Minami-ke is in no way sexual, it has the same sort of humor in which we just watch our favorite, eccentric characters sit around and do normal things during the day. Same sort of plotless but character driven comedy, and same dependable characters are constant throughout both series.
Both will have you holding your ribs from laughter.
