ACG = Animation, Comics and Games (in Chinese culture).
Ba Ma Laizi Er Ciyuan or my ACG parents is similar to otaku culture in Japan.
Qi the girl MC has been brought up with parents who have always been obsessed with ACG and have a bookshop filled with this, especially her father.
Yang Wei is the normal friend who sits next to Qi in class.
While Qi tries to distance herself from her parents hobby, Yang Wei finds out an even bigger secret.
His Mother was once a famous Manga writer ( pen name Chio ) from way back, when she was younger. Finding this out Yang Wei & his
sister set to try and help her.
She gave it all up to start a family but has always had some regrets about what if?
So this is like two halves, firstly Qi gets the beginning episodes and Wang's Mother gets the latter one's.
Animation. This was nice & clean, better than some of the dull Chinese anime.
Sound. Only an ending song which was short but sweet.
Voices. I find Chinese voice actors very funny sometimes. It is slightly different than Japanese but if more people gave it a chance i think they may come around as well.
Characters. These were definitely the best part. Qi the girl suffers with ACG 24/7, from first thing til bedtime she tries to shy away from it. We find out that she had friends who laughed at her for this so she pretended she did not like it.
My favourite character was the Mother ( pen name Chio ) who finally came to terms with what she really wanted to do, continue with her Manga. Seeing her at a Comiket type event with her fans still interested was great, never give up on your dreams.
Overall. At a short running time you still get All sorts of laughs with these characters, especially the Father ( Magical girl Long Aotian ) acting out everyday.
