comedy slice of life


Crayon Shin-chan follows the wacky antics and adventures of five-year-old Shinnosuke "Shin" Nohara and his parents, neighbors, and friends and is set in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture, Japan.

Many of the jokes in the series stem from Shin-chan's occasionally weird, unnatural and inappropriate use of language, as well as from his inappropriate behavior. A typical gag involves Shin-chan confounding his parents by using the wrong phrase for the occasion; for example, saying "Welcome back!" instead of "I am back!" when he comes home.

During the beginning of the series, the TV show was mostly based on the storyline in the original manga. As the show progressed, more and more episodes became anime-original.

It slightly saddens me that Crayon Shin-Chan does not get very many reviews because this is my childhood ( although this series is quite inappropriate for young children in certain aspects... ). And many people in the American community think it's stupid ( which isn't wrong, because there are rather... strange parts to this series that just makes this "Crayon Shin-Chan" ).

However, there is a strange charm to this series which drag the audience in. It merely seems like a weird children's show at first glance, but it is actually an adult show with many adult-targeted humor. However, there are still an aspect of childhood read more

My opinion may not be shared by most of MAL users, because Crayon Shin-chan is rated PG(-13) in American countries and is for "Everyone" in my country, so everybody here sees it as an anime destined to children.

I'm not going to write a long review for this one, it's going to be plain and simple. Shin-chan is a 5 years old boy that disturbs every one, he's obviously and logically childish, he's pervert, addicted to television, his mother is really incredible to stand this impossibly irritating little boy. The show is full of under-the-belt jokes as well as troubles between adults because of Shin's way read more

When I first acknowledged that Shin-chan is finally going to be dubbed and licensed in NA, I was filled with thrill and excitement, having been a diehard Kureiyon Shin-chan fan since I was born, and could not wait to see it. However, after watching through all of it, and saw that there isn't any review on MyAnimeList on this specific release, I felt like I could give a word of advice or two for those who haven't seen it but will.

Every bit of the English dubbed version of Crayon Shin-chan reminds me of the read more

This is by far one of the most fun special anime show,it doesn't feature the kind of a story and animation you usually see in other anime shows, even tho the story is repetitive, and it might seem that the subject is mostly about a 5-year-old showing his buttocks to everybody, it isn't that way, it has it's own humour, slapstick jokes, and antics from a quirky little boy who can twist and turn any other's opinions and make them say what they don't intend to. Shin-Chan doesn't seem to behave even after his mother, Misae, spanks his behind and stretches his cheeks at a read more

both have similar styles, stupid characters, and the jokes are simply "under the belt"

but ebichu is a bit more... explicit 
Kids' shows turned comedies. ADV rewrote Ghost Stories and FUNimation rewrote Crayon Shin-chan for Adult Swim. Both dubs are packed with political incorrectness and comical one-liners. 
If you like Crayon Shin-chan, you have to watch Keroro Gunsou (aka Sgt. Frog). I didn't find Shin-chan that funny, but Keroro Gunsou is a riot to me. 
Very random and funny. Has alot of cool action scenes and very stange art at times. 
-Both series are very goofy and have a good amount of crude humor
-Both series have a distinctive art style
-Both series have (in my opinion) awesome English dubs 
Both with style like western comic strip but less about politics and more about kids in a small warm family.
Genre: Slice of life comedy: every characters has some weaknesses, sometimes laugh together and sometimes fight.
