The Minami residence is home to three sisters: the strict and diligent eldest sister Haruka; air-headed and lively Kana; and the youngest, Chiaki, whose sharp tongue spares no one. Living without adult supervision, the sisters share the workload of cooking and laundry, as well as the occasional romantic adventure. From combating chronic laziness to hanging out with friends, there is never a boring day in the Minami household.

This isn't as popular as Daily Lives of High School Boys or Nichijou, and although this isn't as good as Nichijou it still deserves some recognition. The comedy here slaps, and the animation is good.

The Story: About three sisters who live in a house. THey all attend schools, each of em has a boy chasing after them. They all take care and love each other though they show different ways of showing it. There isn't much in terms of plot as it is mostly a comedy anime.

(TLDR Review at the bottom, as always, thanks for reading)

"This review is one that lightly describes the ordinary daily lives of the three Minami sisters. Please don't expect too much from it. Also, read in a bright room, and stay 3 meters away from your device while reading." — NextUniverse after getting some help from the Minami sisters.

Minami-ke is an anime that reminds me quite a lot of the days when I would sit down in front of a TV and watch whatever the hell Cartoon Network and other channels had. As much as I was an action-loving guy long ago, I did like the ...
