Leaving the nest to live on your own is one of the most exciting moments in a teenager's life. It's even more so if the landlord of that new apartment complex happens to be an adorable middle school student and your next door neighbor is a flirtatious bombshell. Freedom has never tasted so sweet.
The protagonist of the story, Maeda, is your typical adolescent male, constantly fantasizing about the attractive girls around him, including Chie, his landlord, and Reiko, his neighbor. Life with these young ladies is full of fun surprises, making every day an interesting one.
Ooyasan wa Shishunki! is your typical slice of life anime. The heartwarming characters and comedic plot are sure to brighten your day.
Story 6/10: This anime contains the daily moments of the main character being a landlord of her apartment and a student.
Characters 7/10: Chie is a young student and landlord of a building. She is very mature for her age, but she is also very cute. Maeda is one of the tenants who is hard-working, but constantly having dreams of girls. Reiko is also one of the tenants and loves to hang out with Chie.
Overall enjoyment 5/10: Easy to watch. The length of the anime is very short. When it comes to slice of life animes, I would always assume that
it would be approximately 20-30 minutes long. I also assume that there might be a romance between the two tenants.
There isn't much story to talk about, but that's pretty much given with 2 minute episodes.
Nothing breathtaking, but quite decent and nicely used
There isn't much room for sound variety in two minute episodes where 30 seconds are taken by the opening so, the sound falls on the short side (although I like that opening)
There isn't much development beyond the initial setting, but the interactions and quirks that are present are amusing and likeable
I enjoyed this short anime quite a bit, probably because it is something that could bring a smile on my face even if
it was just for two minutes a week
This anime isn't some story driven epic or deep drama, but if you need something to fill a short amount time and/or to relieve the tension before between episodes of other anime or work, it's perfectly adequate.
(Just a side note: it would be nice if the source material was avaliable somewhere...)
Shorts are more or less pointless these days. Transitively, making a review of this is also pointless.
Story: A dude named Maeda moves into a new apartment complex where his landlord is a middle school girl.
Character: There is zero character to be had. Both tenants that this middle schooler is the landlord of must control their lolicon urgencies. (We had 2 minutes of runtime each episode. Do not expect much.)
Art: Average. Next point.
Sound: There is one track. It's generic, not worth listening to.
Personal Enjoyment: I'll be honest, I was confused half the time watching this.
The characters talk so fast to fit the 2 minute episode time that I was left dazed in my seat trying to process this show.
Watch if you want. You'll only use up about half an hour of your life if you choose to do so.
(If you read this all under 2 minutes, congratulations, you read it in under the time it takes to finish one episode.)
Well first thing to note is how quick this anime can be completed, at 2 minutes per episode (with 20 seconds on the OP), this anime's total runtime goes at less than 15 minutes to finish, thus LA can easily say why the characters speak so quickly, they needed to cram in the setup of the joke, some banter and finally the punchline all in 90 seconds, so it's to be expected.
The comedy comes at you quick and fast and considering the "weird" premise kinda makes it even funnier, even though the comedy can lead to some self-aware fanservice moments and character jabs, take this
like you will.
The animation by Seven Arcs is decent enough with zigzagging background but having some attention to detail on the characters designs, not much to say about it other than that. This anime is by all means in-offensive and as LA said you can easily finish it under 15 minutes and be done and over with.
Nonetheless, Ooyasan wa Shishunki! is a decently quick and funny anime short of Winter 2016.
