Haruki Nakano lives an average high school life, except for the fact that his mother is overseas and he shares an apartment with his four sisters. There's the oldest, Mutsuki, who has a bad habit of falling asleep in his bed, the junior high school student Yayoi, who hits him whenever something happens, and then the grade school twins, Uzuki and Satsuki, who love to play pranks on their older brother.

Stuck in a house with four girls, Haruki has to deal with all sorts of trials. From going grocery shopping, watching scary movies, to kissing practice, life is never boring in Danchigai!

Looking for a series that you can feel like relaxing once in a while?

Well, Danchigai is the perfect series for that. There is no intense plot or melodramatic story as the series goes on. Danchigai moves at its own pace, with slowly but surely calming vibes until the end of its series. The series may not have a tear-jerker plot, but the cheerful moments with a lovely atmosphere in Danchigai have exceeded and covered the series' flaws. In a sense, this series is far better than the rest of the series in the same genre. While the others clearly show one weakness or two, Danchigai read more

It can be tempting at times to infer things about the creator of a work from the thing that they have made. The temptation, even the allure, to think that watching/reading/viewing something not only leads us to an understanding of the subject itself, but also gives us a window into the mind of the person or persons responsible for it's creation. Having watched Danchigai, I find myself thinking that creator Kazusa Yoneda must be an only child, because only someone without siblings would imagine it being like this.

Anime shorts are a very odd kind of anime format. Usually ten minutes or less in length, anime shorts usually try to just give you a little something for the little time that they have. So, for the three minute Danchigai, what kind of a story do we have here?

Story: Danchigai is very straightforward. In a small apartment, there are five siblings. One brother and four sisters. This is their daily life.

As an anime short, Danchigai doesn't have any kind of "deep" story or anything. With each episode coming at a whopping length of 3.5 minutes, the read more

(This is my first review on MAL. I chose a short anime and easy to review to practise it.)

Danchigai is a short-type anime released in 2015 by studio "Creators in Pack".
Nothing incredible, but the 3-minute duration of the series is more than pleasant and not too boring. The anime presents the classic stereotypes of this genre, however it is not irritating and too repetitive.
Let's see what this series offers us

Story: 6
Nothing incredible, the story is based on 4 sisters, two older and two younger, and a brother, where all live in the same house.
Each episode has some gags, some interesting, others less so.
However, as mentioned read more
