Umaru Doma is a model student who has a hidden side: when she gets home each day, she puts on her hamster hoodie and turns into a sluggish otaku fond of junk food. As Umaru continues these daily antics, the friendship between her and her classmates—Nana Ebina, Kirie Motoba, and Sylphinford Tachibana—deepens, and more and more interesting events begin to unfold.

Of course, these events give rise to numerous questions. What did Nana ask of Umaru's brother Taihei? Who is the mysterious girl with the diamond hairpin? And most important of all: why does this girl seem to know Umaru? These questions and more will be answered in Himouto! Umaru-chan R!

Himouto! Umaru-chan's second season could be one of the more underappreciated comedies out there.

It's safe to assume anyone who's considering picking up this anime has already seen the first season. My biggest gripe with the first season of Umaru was that the character herself was, for lack of a better word, a complete cunt. Even though her brashness gave the anime its spirit, the second season does a much better balancing act with the many faces of Umaru. The rest of the characters are as entertaining as ever. I certainly wouldn't have made it through the first season if it wasn't for Ebina and Kirie, ...

Mixed Feelings
This is a comprehensive review of both Season One and Season Two.

Himouto Umaru-chan was an anime I downloaded some time ago, for I was swayed by the hype (and the memes) surrounding its titular character, and one I was deliberately putting off from watching for quite a long time. I knew I wasn’t going to like it, yet in the end, I had no choice but to see it as I was running low on space on my HDD and had to delete something. You can see from my score that I didn’t like it quite much (as I had expected). After I finished watching ...

I wrote a review for this season, but it was too long since I was mostly venting my frustrations. Instead of talking about specifics, I'll just directly point out the main reason why this season was unbearable:

The brother main character keeps to himself the location and phone number of a brother of one of Umaru's friends, and they've said they've been looking for the whereabouts of that brother for 10 years. The brother MC notices the brother has the same last name as her, has the same hairband as her, acts like her... but doesn't bother simply asking that brother if he was related ...
