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, read more

Umaru is one of those series whose main problem lies in having a premise that appeals to a target demographic (that of older teenagers and young adults) but is actually most enjoyed by another (young parents and siblings with bigger age gaps).

I am actually impressed at how much I ended up liking this series despite having low expectations and reading some of the reviews of the original series. While not always having laugh out loud moments, each episode delivered and I always ended up with a heartfelt smile.

Many people describe Umaru as bratty and annoying, but upon closer inspection I believe she read more

This is my first ever review on an anime show. Here we go! `(^.^)´

When I read that there would be a sequel to Umaru-chan I felt very happy and excited. Now I could look forward to meeting the characters again and hopefully get to know more about Umaru-chan and all the others in the upcoming sequel. Though I was a bit worried about how this show would be different to the first one, my worries was blown away after finishing Himouto! Umaru-chan R.
I can gladly tell you that this show was even better than the first one!

PLOT: Season 2 continues off with the momentum! This time, Umaru decides to take a leap of faith & be more outgoing with her friends. Her adventures gets more interesting with the encounters they deal with in every episode. Not a lot has changed to be honest...

Umaru: Sweet, kind, funny, adorable, cute, lazy, intelligent & a total foodie. She still loves video games and anime. Surprisingly, I'm still impressed on how she can have so many personalities while her friends noticing & still maintain good grades.
Taihei: Caregiver & older brother of Umaru. He's responsible & does a lot of cooking in the house. We get read more
