Synopsis

The Daichis are a family in danger of tearing itself apart. Dissatisfied and money obsessed mom Seiko has served wimpy and otaku dad Mamoru with divorce papers. Daughter Nozomi who has always been saddled with all the housework, feels pained that everyone is using her. The youngest albeit most foul mouthed, Dai is forced to watch all this as everything is going to pieces. However when the Galaxy Federation recruits the Daichis to combat alien threats to the wellbeing of the Earth, it will be a chance for the family to save the world and maybe themselves.

This is a fantastic anime, very fun to watch! My friend was like "Do you want to watch Daichis?" and I said "What is it about?" and he said "It's like The Incredibles, but it's better, funnier, and it's anime!"

Character: some characters appear to be flat at first, but there are surprising depths of character.
Enjoyment: i enjoyed it very much.
Overall: ...

"The Only Way To Save This Family Is For Them To Save The World"

The Daichis is one of those series that is so obscure and easy to overlook despite the fact it even got licensed and fully dubbed into English you would be forgiven for not having heard of it. It was this obscurity and ultimately curiosity that led me to watching the show and I'm so glad I did.
