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!" It's not really like The Incredibles, I mean it does have a superheroic family, but that is about the extent of the similarity.

Story: is pretty pretty good. a little bit of everything: drama, comedy, action...
Art: pretty kickass.
Sound: this anime has the BEST opening song EVER.
Character: some characters appear to be flat at first, but there are surprising depths of character.
Enjoyment: i enjoyed it very much.
Overall: read more

This proved to be a fun title. The Daichis serves as a parody of sorts of the sentai genre with the dysfunctional chemistry of the titular family as they get forced into becoming battle suit-powered "superhumans" to combat alien threats. The family issues of the family are explored both humorously and seriously where father Mamoru is a weak-minded otaku too spineless to stand up for himself, wife Seiko is too self-centered and greedy to care for her family's well-being, daughter Nozomi is stressed from doing all the housework for her family and son Dai is quite the problem child. Their unique circumstances as Earth's guardians read more

A great (albeit unorthodox) series. Though some of the plots may seem skewed because of the poor translations, the story is clear and I think it is a great series.
