SynopsisCrayon 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.

Characters & Voice Actors
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 innocence left in certain ways. Either way, it can be a light show for pretty much any range. Even without being able to relate to adult humor, Crayon Shin-chan is hilarious within itself. The characters are all very unique, and all deeply plotted.
Also, the movies are something to take note of. The Shin-chan movies are focused on the fantasy adventure aspect of the series which is not very often encountered in the original series, creating that excitement out of the everyday life humor. Nevertheless, many of them also show a heartwarming connection within the Nohara family and often brings me to a gross sobbing. The movies seems to fill in the lack of excitement and portrayal of touching feelings in the original series.
Despite its weirdness and occasional fantasy aspect, I find this series very down to earth. The characters are not perfect or "cool", and they are very human. But when watching the movies, it feels as if I'm watching Gintama, another random comedy which hints at the touching back story of the characters from time to time.
Overall, I personally enjoy Crayon Shin-chan any day, and feel like it is something anyone can really get into when watching it alongside of the movies. 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 of telling stories to others et cetera.
It's simple fun, and manages to stay fun. It is a long-running anime full of fun.
Note for those who read the manga but hadn't seen the anime, they are totally similar. read more
both have similar styles, stupid characters, and the jokes are simply "under the belt"
but ebichu is a bit more... explicit
Do you like perverted jokes and taboo humour? Then you'll like this shows. Ebichu being the more obscene one of the two, is, I warn you, drenched with blood, violence and pervertedness. Neverthless, I laughed out loud the whole show. Crayon Shin-chan is almost the same, only a bit more on the PG-13 side...
The artwork is pretty much the same and Ebichu seems like a animal version of Shin-chan.
