Sunohara-sou no kanrinin-san

The series follows Aki Shiina, a shy boy whose feminine looks often cause him to be mistaken for a girl. As he is about to enroll in Tanamachi school, he moves into the lodging house Sunohara-sou in Tokyo, run by the motherly caretaker Ayaka Sunohara, whom he forms a crush on. The other residents of Sunohara-sou are three girls from the Tanamachi student council: Yuzu Yukimoto, Sumire Yamanashi, and Yuri Kazami. Although he moved to Tokyo because he was being teased for his feminine looks and wanted to reaffirm his identity as a man, he keeps being mistaken for a girl, and Ayaka read more

Repost due to MAL's "Finished Airing" status, no changes are made.

My initial criticism on this was super harsh, on it being a trash anime that tries to capitalize on the shouta-gal cliché (got burned out by the ludicrous Hajimete no Gal). Oh, how dreadfully wrong I was.

Now that this series has ended, I'm glad that I was able to get a good amount of enjoyment, so much so that this shall go into my Summer seasonal guilty pleasure.

Sunoharasou no Kanrinin-san is at heart, a 4-koma manga to anime adaptation, so don't go in and expect some plot holes or some insane storyline. It is also read more

First let me say that this show is appealing to the fetishes known as "shotacon" and "Onee-san". (Older sister)
That is older women (usually busty) who are attracted to younger boys.
If you are not down with the fetish then its quite likely you won't enjoy this show nearly as much as I did.

Oh it is so so good.

Story: 6
Not the strong suit of this show, but that's because it is a episodic comedy. Shiina Aki, a young boy who has always been treated like a girl, moves from the countryside to a Tokyo dormitory so he can have a fresh start in middle school. The dormitory read more

Do you like SS?

Do you dream of being spoiled/taken care of by an older motherly woman?

Do you wish you had girl friends who would let you do stereotypically girly things?

Do you have a **thing** for wanting to dress/be more feminine?

Do you wish that more people would tell you that you're a "good boy"?

Do you enjoy hand holding?

Are you a head pat slut?

Has harem anime never really won you over because, it seems to reinforce traditional roles of masculinity?

Do you read Nora Higuma doujinshi?

If you answer yes to these questions; this anime was made for you.

This is a garbage anime. It's terrible.

But, it makes read more
