Takuya Enoki is living a difficult life for a fifth grader. His mother passed away in a tragic car accident a few months ago, forcing him to pick up the slack and take care of his baby brother, Minoru, as his father works the endless hours typical of a Japanese salaryman.
He will have to sacrifice his childhood in order to meet the needs of his little brother. Cooking, cleaning, worrying, and trying to discipline Minoru are some of the tasks Takuya will have on his plate, all while their neighbors blame him for Minoru’s constant crying. Meanwhile, he will watch as his friends live their carefree lives, enjoying their free time. It will not be easy and there will be plenty of stumbling blocks, but along the way, he may actually learn the true meaning of family.
akachan to boku or baby and me, a very beautiful series that teaches so many things.... a boy(Takuya) who lost his mother at a very young age leaving her new born baby at the hands of her husband and son
ever since this incident happened Takuya's life has changed, he now has to take care of a baby as well as doing his school works....
of course it's hard for a boy who instead of playing takes care of his younger brother
this series shows the love between family members, the responsibilities that each has for the other, the co-operation between them and most important the understandings between eachother, it might sounds boring but it's really close to real life, there's no fantasy and impossible things, it's really sensitive and touching story that makes you think of what you did and what you must do...
the art might not be that awesome, it's the normal art of any shoujo series, those big eyes and the big heads of the babies, it's just an ok art but if you think of the story and the characters you'll forget about the art...
the sound is amazing, that soft background makes you feel the story and enjoy the scenes and the characters are awesome, when they cry you cry and when they laugh you laugh, they just let you close to them and feel what they feel especially Takuya who doesn't have anyone to listen to his complaints except us, the viewers! but some of the characters are hilarious so yeah akachan to boku isn't a sad or a typical shoujo anime(which has only romance and nothing) it's kinda a mix of everything, a really lovely series which will touch anyone's heartread more
i watched it dubbed and i still watch it till now it`s really a good anime with a very good story
story : pretty normal stor of a family after the mother died , with a lot of emotion and support the family continued their life and the brother had to grow up and take care of his younger brother the anime revoloves around the different difficulties the family faces and how they solve it together
characters : amazing and i loveee all of them
voices : personally i think takuya`s voice could have been gentler and also seeichi voice could have been younger after all he is only in his 20th but other than that the rest of the voices are so cute specially takuya`s father enouki
art : it`s old but i still like it considering when it was made it was pretty good
the anime expresses the emotions between sublings and the real love between them it also shows how a family can continue together no matter what hardships faced themread more
Akachan to Boku is my favorite anime. When I first saw this anime I even didn't knew it's name. But I searched in internet and after 1 year I found it's name in arabic Ana Wa Akhi...and so on
I first watched it in hindi dubbed on spacetoon. And I really feels it's story is too emotional and it sometimes make me cry. I also luv it's opening song especially in hindi. I really feels it is a masterpiece and I'd be happy to see it's movie...
