Miyagawa Atsushi is an 11-year-old boy who is 180 centimeters tall. Since he has a grown-up looking build but acts his age, he has always been running into troubles. On the other hand, his 17-year-old elder sister Atsumi is only 137 centimeters tall. Even though she has a childish looking build, Atsumi takes good care of Atsushi.

I honestly like the concept of an elementary school student who looks like a high school student while his sister looks like an elementary school student. The first few episodes were cute, but then it started becoming cliché. I also don't understand how the adults could be so stupid. They notice Atsushi when he interacts with his young female friend but fail to notice that he takes the same route with him? No one tells anyone that he is a big boy? Despite having interesting art and sound, it fell short towards the end. On the plus side, it is a quick watch. Thus why read more

I'm...I'm just so shocked that people are giving this a 10. This definitely doesn't deserve a 10. Everyone's dishing out perfect scores way too easily.

I'm not going to lie, I was intrigued by the concept. At first I thought this series was a romcom or something, but when I realized it was about a brother and sister, I thought I was in for some cute, feel-good anime candy. That's not quite what I got.

Don't get me wrong, there's some likable stuff here. Both Atsuhi and Atsumi are likable characters who act their age, and I've got to give props to Atsuhi's voice actor for being read more

This is honestly just one big child molestation joke. But seriously, joke repetition is sometimes funny, but they really rely on that one particular joke here way too much. The shtick that he looks like an adult quickly runs its course, and after a few episodes it just becomes stale and a bit disturbing.

Art is mediocre at best and the sound effects are just plain and random, I swear I heard some of them in bad Youtube videos. Also, character voice work is inconsistent and sometimes jarring to listen to. Overall, the only saving grace here is that it is a short anime and you read more

Story: Recorder to Randoseru Do♪ is the first installment of the Recorder to Randoseru series. It follows a young fifth-grade boy named Atsushi Miyagawa. He looks like a full grown man, being 180cm (About 5'10") tall! And then there is his "big" sister, Atsumi Miyagawa, who is 137cm (About 4'5") tall. However, Atsushi acts his true age.


Art: The art of Recorder to Randoseru Do♪ completely relates to the characters' heights. Since Atsushi looks like an adult, they turned him into a bishounen looking character, who acts his true age. Atsumi looks like a kid, so they turned her into a moe, loli, childish looking character, read more
