Though they couldn't be any more different, love has managed to blossom between Hajime Tsunashi, a hardcore otaku who shuts himself in at home while making a living off his blog, and his wife Kaoru—a hard-working office lady who, in contrast, is fairly ordinary, albeit somewhat of a crazy drunk. As this unlikely couple discovers, love is much more than just a first kiss or a wedding; the years that come afterward in the journey of marriage brings with it many joys as well as challenges.

Whether due to their quirky personalities or the peculiar people surrounding them, Hajime and Kaoru find themselves caught up in a variety of baffling and ridiculous antics. But despite the struggles they face, the love that ties them together spurs them to move forward and strive to become better people in order to bring their partner happiness.

Literally you can get this show done in an hour.

The plot of "I can't understand what my husband is saying" is about Kauro, an office lady, and her husband Hajime, an otaku who makes money as a blogger, and their lives as a married couple. The show has decent humor in it making it very enjoyable. Not only that, it's kind of interesting how the show tells their lives as a couple in only about three to four minutes.

If want to watch a quick and very enjoyable anime. I recommend "I can't understand what my husband is saying".

It can be quite easy to let your prejudices get the better of you. Opening your arms to something new, only to encounter the same things time and time again. Your expectations become lower and lower, until they become so low they no longer justify the effort of trying anything new in the first place. The reliance on the same old ideas and lack of creativity becomes so frustrating that even reading descriptions of new things annoys you. You have become a cynic.

If there were ever an anime to be cynical about, Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken would be it. The series read more

To establish a believable story is a difficult feat and yet this show manages to pull it off rather effortlessly. With a mere 3 minutes per episode, Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken manages to accomplish what most other slice of life shows do not.

While the premise, at first, seems tired and tedious the palpable chemistry between the contrasting protagonists leads to one of the most sincere representations of modern married life in anime. Their interaction feels real and wholesome, without being forced and unnatural. The characters have a sense of development, which helps give purpose to their lives, resulting in a surprisingly read more

(This has been adapted from my reddit thread)

It's funny how compartmentalized life really is. When you get right down to it, it's a bunch of connected events that have a certain amount of significance. Being born, losing that first tooth, passing that big test, graduating college; there are endless but meaningful happenings that occur that shape the course of the life we take. A rather large one is the decision to bind oneself to another person "until death do they part." Otherwise known as marriage, it is a day usually considered the biggest when it comes to a relationship. For I Can't Understand What My read more
