The majority of the Matsuno household is comprised of six identical siblings: self-centered leader Osomatsu, manly Karamatsu, voice of reason Choromatsu, cynical Ichimatsu, hyperactive Juushimatsu, and lovable Todomatsu. Despite each one of them being over the age of 20, they are incredibly lazy and have absolutely no motivation to get a job, choosing to live as NEETs instead. In the rare occurrence that they try to look for employment and are somehow able to land an interview, their unique personalities generally lead to their swift rejection.

From trying to pick up girlfriends to finding the perfect job, the daily activities of the Matsuno brothers are never dull as they go on all sorts of crazy, and often downright bizarre, adventures. Though they desperately search for a way to improve their social standing, it won't be possible if they can't survive the various challenges that come with being sextuplets!

Osomatsu-san was made to commemorate the 80th birthday of the series' late original creator, Fujio Akatsuka.

A parody of Anpanman, a popular kids anime, in the third episode was reanimated following complaints to the network, while the first episode, due to the fact that it contained multiple parodies, has been pulled entirely from streaming sites and the Japanese Blu-Ray release.

It's unbelievable how Osomatsu-San is this much underrated. I guess it's like this in the West, because from the looks of the cast, collaborations and sequels, it is some kind of a franchise in Japan.

It might have become a franchise, but the first season is definitely a passion project. It's obvious, they love the original work and put so much thought on every detail of the script and designs for the successor. I can't remember how many times I thought "that is genius" or laughed out screaming or smacked my knees.

It resembles Nichijou in terms of structure and absurdity. But I must say that ...

I found Osomatsu-san to be pretty similar to family guy in a few ways, I'd call Osomatsu-san the Japanese Family guy.
Both shows have a similar sense of comedy in a way. Sure, the jokes, gags, and punchlines are completely different, but the one thing that they have in common is that jokes drag on for such a long time. Just like Family Guy, Osomatsu-san has a lot of jokes and scenarios that could have been funny if executed in a timely manner, but instead, some stupid scenario that should have been one minute long goes all the way anywhere from 2 minutes to the entire ...

Art/Sound: The animation isn't horrible. But it mostly only adds to the frankly awful and unfunny humor and the character designs are really unflattering. The first OP was decent, and the first ED is notable for the ending animation alone. It's actually quite interesting, even if it's really stupid.

Story/Characters: A friend of mine who loves this show who doesn't get why I hate it so much keeps telling me 'it's just supposed to be a light and fun why are you judging it so harshly?' My answer usually ends up being, 'just because it's fun and light means it has to have unlikable, uninteresting, and ...
