Synopsis

Hajime Tsunashi is an otaku shut-in that runs a blog, attends anime conventions with his cross-dressing younger brother, and is a surprisingly good cook. Kaoru Tsunashi is a hard-working, smoking, socially-drinking office lady with an overprotective father. Despite coming from two completely different worlds, these two couldn't be more in love with one another… even if she has trouble understanding the vast and complicated world of anime and manga that her husband is deeply entrenched within.

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken is a slice of life anime that explores the life and times of a newly married couple, filled with heartwarming scenes that showcase how the two of them grow as people through their relationships and their friends.

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

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".

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
