Ahh, Hamtaro. Where do I begin? The epic tales of little hamsters and their trials and tribulations in a big world. This series is absolutely irresistible. I first started watching it with my little sister because of the cute hamsters but soon got pulled into the simple, childish world.

Bear in mind that this is a series primarily aimed towards children and is being rated as such. However, I found the series enjoyable on many levels, from the rivalries between the hamsters for their loves and the various friendships and relationships that invariably develop with such a large cast of characters.

What can I say? I'm a fan boy!

But my review is honestly what I think this series deserves--it is a perfect mix of everything anime is suppose to be. There is a bit of everything from time to time: romance, action, humour, suspense, seriousness, etc.

The series is most enjoyable in the original form (Tottoko Hamutaro) as I find the voice acting much better, and the sound EXTREMELY better. It has, by far, the BEST OST soundtrack of any anime I've ever heard, surpassing the likes of One Piece by a mile.

Where it does fall short, unfortunately, is the story. At times the childishness of the read more

The story of friendship,honor,glory and teamwork.

This series is a great anime that doesn't take itself too seriously but can still trigger emotions when it needs to. There's everything from comedy to adventure to randomness everything an anime needs hamtaro has, except plot.

It has more of an episodic theme with "filler" like episodes instead of a main plot but that doesn't harm the shows quality in any way.

The soundtrack this show gives is a straight 10/10 . I have yet to find a song I didn't like especially the ending which is a great uplifting song filled with positivity.

This may be my nostalgia talking read more

Anime: Chi's Sweet Home
The daily life and adventures of a pet. Hamtaro is aimed even more towards kids, as the anime gives these animals more personification than the animals of Sweet Home.

Both are about pets that have adventures when they're owners aren't looking. They are both very lighthearted and child-friendly! :D
