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!

I always watch this anime when I'm not in good mode, Because this anime can restore my enthusiasm to like anime again, you could say it's sugar intake.

Tells the daily life of a cute character, but unfortunately the duration is too short, I like the ending song, each character sings at the end of the episode and each character has their own impression.

I really recommend this anime for those of you who like Loli, Oneechan, or Imouto, complete package to watch.

I hope there are other anime like this, but with an average duration like other anime, around 20 minutes.

Nothing incredible, the story is based on 4 sisters, two older and two younger, and a brother, where all live in the same house.

Not a big fan of the 3-minute episode style of animes, that have credits on top to eat into animation time.

As much as this is a typical slice of life, it makes me even less interested, as no goals, aims, etc, just a repetitive poor storyline attempt on a typically dysfunctional family, which although they love and would watch over each other do stupid stuff.

The show aims to get laughs from a violent sister, another sister who shares the bed with the older brother and asks for his help kissing, and twins who just want to play pranks. If I was a ...
