intro to each episode is basically a 15 second introduction with him introducing the setting and his litte sister makes ecchi joke at beginning
If you can get past the animation of this show, then you'll find a very good show of comedy/slice of life talking about the humorous things Osakans do. Couldn't decide whether to pick 8 or 9 so i picked 9 since its underrated.
I have seen my fair share of anime shorts, this was quite possibly one of the most enjoyable ones I seen so far.
Boku no Imouto wa "Osaka Okan" is a show full of humor as it playful shows off and explains numerous stereotypes of people from Osaka.
The animation is not all that impressive and the voice cast is limited as is the case with most shorts, but it still doesn't take away from the characters or the story. The brother and sister pair well together (as true brother and sister).
Namika (the little sister) is cute, lovable, and 100% Osakan, Kyousuke (the brother) generally
goes along try to make sense of his Osakan little sister, and Kaede (the Little sister's best friend) helps round out the cast.
I went into watching this having little to no expectations and upon completion was astounded and highly entertained. This anime short contained likable characters, was very humorous, extremely entertaining, and a must watch in my opinion. Trust me you won't regret it.
Time for a short series. I randomly picked a short series to watch for some joy. So, it's Boku no Imouto wa Osaka Okan, animated by some very obscure studios. After completing the anime, I have to say I'm surprised(with a very small "s"). It's a rather cute story about an imouto who returned after 10 years and reuniting with her older brother. From her brother's(protagonist) point of view, she changed a lot; She came back as a hyperactive Osaka-n girl.
Story-wise, it's nothing too extraordinary. Just the usual slice of life I've seen, quite similar to "Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga
Nai" in a way because of it's "imouto" concept. Unfortunately, in terms of comedy, it terrible. Jokes and gags are not hilarious at all. The show teaches the viewers the "rules" on how Osaka-n people talk and their habits. On the plus side, the anime doesn't have any incest.
First of all, there's Ishihara Namika(the imouto); cute, eccentric and has an "Osaka-n" accent. While, Ishihara Kyousuke(brother/protagonist) is the really laid-back type of guy, but compared to some of the other protagonists I've seen, he isn't too bad as the main male character for one reason, he's not obnoxious. But all in all, he's just the bland protagonist we often see in anime.
In terms of artstyle/visuals, it's decent, but in terms of animation? It's bad. Characters' actions and movement are very poorly animated - there's barely any movement. It reminds me of those flash games: Happy Wheels, QWOP, etc. Personally, these "animations" are nifty for flash games and other flash-related media, but for an anime? No, it ain't. Well, fortunately, you can get used to it, eventually.
To sum up, Boku no imouto Osaka Okan is a short, adorable Slice of life anime but with flaws. I might had enjoyed it more if it was lengthened to a full, TV-sized, 20 minutes episodes series and with "proper" character animations. In the end, it falls just below the passing mark.
