Synopsis

People are not always who they appear to be, as is the case with Umaru Doma, the perfect high school girl—that is, until she gets home! Once the front door closes, the real fun begins. When she dons her hamster hoodie, she transforms from a refined, over-achieving student into a lazy, junk food-eating otaku, leaving all the housework to her responsible older brother Taihei. Whether she's hanging out with her friends Nana Ebina and Kirie Motoba, or competing with her self-proclaimed "rival" Sylphinford Tachibana, Umaru knows how to kick back and have some fun!

Himouto! Umaru-chan is a cute story that follows the daily adventures of Umaru and Taihei, as they take care of—and put up with—each other the best they can, as well as the unbreakable bonds between friends and siblings.

I don't recommend this anime. Things included in this show are unlikable characters, terrible comedy, and essentially everything you've already seen before. I get it, the chibi form of the main character is cute and marketable, it's being used on banners and logos and whatnot, but it's all just a ruse.

Now let me make this clear. I love slice of life anime. I loved Nichijou, Barakamon and the list goes on. However this particular anime has a few breaking flaws. First off, the main character is a bratty teenager who basically gets whatever she wants and if she doesn't, ...

I’m not going to lie. Watching Himouto! Umaru-chan (My Two-Faced Little Sister) makes me feel like a kid all over again. Each week, each episode is like an indoor and outdoor adventure of its own. Titular character Umaru Doma is the class superstar as well as the model that almost everyone looks up to. Her brother, Taihei Doma, is kind of like the sidekick providing her shelter, food, and a sense of comfort for her when she’s living at home. Really though, this series took me by surprise like an unexpected storm. And I’m talking about the type of otaku storm where you have to ...

This is the anime you probably see all over Tumblr with funny and relatable screencaps. You'd think "Wow, this anime must be really funny!". Well, it is; In the first three episodes at least.

Basically, Umaru is a high school student who's admired by everyone because of her kind personality, looks, and brains. But once she's at home, she's a lazy weeb who bosses her brother around 25/8 to do shit for her. The art is decent, I guess, but the main point is suppose to be Umaru's personality, or at least I think it is.

There's some side characters, but they don't do much. The anime ...

Technical Quality vs. Enjoyment: A Strange Discrepancy

Many anime are inherently flawed, yet are fun to watch or vice versa, where there is a definitive discrepancy between what can be considered quality and what can be considered fun.
