SynopsisThe 11-year-old Marui triplets could not be any more different. The oldest one, Mitsuba, is sadistic and kind of mature for her age. The middle one, Futaba, is perverted and very athletic and has the strength of a full-grown man. The youngest one, Hitoha, is generally very quiet and gentle but when push comes to shove, she might just be the strongest, the most perverted and the most sadistic out of the three.
The three are all in the same class, led by the newly graduated teacher Yabe Satoshi. He usually gets pushed around by the girls and, on occasion, abused but the triplets also try to lead him and the new school nurse, the clumsy Kuriyama Aiko, together. However, Yabe had no intention of dating Aiko and the methods the triplets use to accomplish their goal are highly unorthodox...

Characters & Voice Actors
Seeing as how hilarious this show is, I'm really surprised there are no reviews for it yet. Usually there are 10 reviews for any given show that's only a couple of episodes in. Same goes for the relatively low score. My guess is it's because of the art style that many people seem to be turned off by. Don't be mislead however, as this is by far the funniest thing to happen to anime this season.
Story - It's really difficult to describe a show based on only a few episodes, but Mitsudomoe doesn't really need a full season's worth of episodes for that. The anime is gag driven, much like Azumanga Daioh. Each episode works as a standalone one, divided into multiple mini gag-based plots. That's not to say that there is no long term plot throughout the series, because there is. The story revolves around a male teacher, who begins his new career teaching a middle school class that contains the troublesome Marui triplets. There is also a clumsy school nurse that he falls in love with at the beginning. This love progresses, if you could even call it progress, as the episodes go on. Primarily though, the show is about the triplets and their teacher getting into all manner of hilarious circumstances, often involving the classmates and the school nurse. Beware however, since Mitsudomoe is adult humor driven much of the time.
Art/Animation - The first thing you might notice is that the art is reminiscent of Azumanga, particularly the heads. Unlike most of the anime released, it does not rely on the more realistic design approach, instead opting for the super cute. This suits Mitsudomoe perfectly in my opinion, since it amplifies the hilarity of many of the circumstances. In episode 3 you're introduced to the triplets' father, who is drawn in a rough/sketchy style. I find it makes for a funny contrast between him and everyone else. The animation is fluid and consistent in terms of quality, with often exaggerated expressions for added comedic effect. This works seamlessly in my opinion.
As for the bg art, there isn't really much to say other than that it's drawn to compliment the simple character designs. The bg coloring is appealing with a muted palette, which sometimes exhibits a slightly marker rendered look.
Sound - This is where many shows fall flat in, typically not having anything praise worthy. The seiyuu's are noteworthy, especially Tomatsu Haruka (known for voicing Lala Deviluke from To LOVE-Ru) and Shimono Hiro (known for voicing Akihisa Yoshii from Baka To Test). The voice work is well done and brings out the characters' personalities really well. The sfx and atmospheric music also deserve to be praised, since they play an important role in the comedy. There are some truly hilarious sfx here and music that cues in at just the right time. The blood draining sound is especially amusing.
The OP also deserves mentioning for its cute and catchy tune.
Character - We have the 3 Marui sisters, Yabe-sensei (main teacher), Kuriyama-sensei (school nurse), as well as many side characters that are introduced in more detail through various points in the story. The triplets consist of Futaba who is the perverted muscle girl, Hitoha who is the dark and gloomy one, and Mitsuba who is the sadistic type as well as the self proclaimed king of the class. The inexperienced, newly transferred teacher and super clumsy school nurse round out the main characters. There is also the father of the Marui sisters, who looks like a big, creepy pervert. I'd also mention all the other secondary characters, but I'd need a lot more space to describe them all. Needless to say, they all have their own unique personalities that get their spotlight as the anime progresses. Overall, a great and entertaining assortment of characters make up Mitsudomoe.
Enjoyment - I'm loving this! Simple as that. Sometimes gag based shows are needed to change the pace and this manages to do just that for me. The relationship between the triplets and everyone around them is entertaining and I can't help but cheer up after watching each episode.
Overall - If you loved Azumanga Daioh, then you will probably like this. Keep in mind that even though Mitsudomoe has a very innocent air about it, it is meant for a more mature audience largely because of the adult humor. If you can appreciate humor the way I do, but at the same time are not easily turned off by the cute art style or the adult themes, then give Mitsudomoe a serious consideration. You won't regret it. read more
Mitsudomoe is a good comedy anime, with several hilarious jokes. Sometimes I burst out laughing. Mitsudomoe had a tendency to rely on misunderstanding jokes where two people are having a conversation but they are talking about different subjects. I don’t understand that as jokes it was really boring. One character would almost always be talking about something sexual, and the other would talk about something innocent. These kinds of jokes were funny at times, but they would dominate all the jokes in parts of the series, particularly in the middle episodes. I was also disturbed by how the characters were 6th graders, yet they knew all of this sexual humor, which really annoyed me.
Is it supposed to be a human or what? The animation was a bit weird, but bearable.
I felt that the characters were absolutely funny and were fun to watch. All of the triplets were unique in their own way. The supporting characters were quite funny too in their relations to the triplets. They were all overall interesting characters.
Really good slice of life, comedy series. Really amusing. The only thing I do dislike was sexual jokes, but all the rest was superb.
Mitsudomoe is a pretty good to watch and is quite humorous. I would recommend it to all who loves good comedies.
Both are comedy, slice-of-life anime, with a focus on a family of 3 sisters. Each individual has a stereotypic personality, which you can pretty much predict their responses/interactions to different situations. Both series will make you laugh out loud.
Comedy, slice of life, scenario based and can be adventerous are a trate both anime's share, aswell as the character types; the fact that both revolve around three very different sisters for a start:
- The oldest is a ring leader; in Minami-Ke, the oldest is said to be an ex gang memeber, whilst in Mitsudome, the oldest 'leads her class' and can be quite sinister
- The middle sister in both series's is hyperactive
- The youngest is quite intellectual, yet socially awkward, wears a aloff expression and is fairly quiet
A slice of life with sisters. But Mitsudomoe is a little more exaggerated - in a fun way
Both have similar styles of humor. Mitsudomoe goes more along the ecchi line of things whereas Minami-ke follows a more straight up Slice of Life humor.
Linked by a name and a common environment, separated by the rest. Masahiko Ohta directs these two animations that portrays the daily lives of three so different sisters. "Minami-ke" is well-behaved, familiar, slow, a true "slice-of-life" that if it doesn't generate many laughs, at least can give the viewer a good amount of light and warm stories. In turn, the restless "Mitsudomoe" is often inconvenient and controversial with his heavy and questionable jokes of sexual nature, made around sixth grade students - but it is hugely funny at the same time that is so wrong,
"Mitsudomoe" and "Minami-ke" are so opposite that in the end this recommendation may fail in what is its purpose: create a link between two similar works. At least, this is a rare opportunity to see two completely different visions of the same theme, devised by the same person.
Mitsudomoe and Minami-ke centers around the everyday life of three sisters, all of them with totally different personalities. Mitsudomoe is MUCH more twisted and dirtier than Minami-ke. Minami-ke has much more depth both in plot and carachters.
The story tells about three sisters too
The 2 anime are both about the everyday, interesting lives of 3 sisters. Mitsudomoe is alot less realistic and funnier (in my opinion) as for Minami-ke has more of a slice-of-life feel going for it. The 3 sisters all have different personalities which makes them funny in their own way dealing with school and home scenairios.
They are both highly recommended and super funny! :D
Both animes are slice-of-life comedies about three very different sisters.
3 girls and 3 girls
both are siblings..
talks about everyday life and hilarious jokes..
both have a new teacher, in his mid 20s at best and a virgin,
Mitsudomoe is funny all around where as Konoji has drama and romance
Both are ecchi, but Mitsudomoe is visual gags, where as Konoji is panty's bras etc
Same setting : An innocence teacher with three perverted kids.
In both Kodomo no Jikan and Mitsudomoe - a new teacher starts teaching a class of strange/somehow perverted kids. In both, at first it is tough for the teacher as the kids hate him but they grow to like him. Both are really funny and enjoyable!
Both have male teachers just starting out. Both have 3 main loli's, a kind one, a strong one, and a scary one. Both have a lot of perverted humor.
Both are similar in the requirement as: Teacher
Both are similar in the requirement as: Personality of the three protagonists
Both are similar in the requirement as: Environment
Remembering what are similar, not identical.
Mitsudomoe is like the same anime in an alternate universe. It's actually really surprising how similar these two animes are. While Kodomo no Jikan is very controversial and I'm not too sure who the demographic is supposed to be for it, Mitsudomoe is genuinely funny and a lot less sexual and overall, just a much better show overall (in my opinion, of course).
They are both about three young perverted girls in school who like their teacher.
In each anime, the teacher is a virgin
I was really surprised by how similar these shows are.I like to think of Mitsudomoe as Kodomo no Jikan without the teacher student love theme.They both have sexual humor and are about a teacher and three girls who are causing him lots of trouble.
