A year has passed since Okawari and the three sisters have grown up. Their likings and moods are almost the same. Haruka, the older sister, is a love-giving mother to the younger sisters and a discipline follower. Kana, the middle one, leaves everything to the last possible moment and always gives trouble to the trio. Chiaki, the little one, is the calculating and manipulating one; she likes to be admired and loved by Haruka and always gives trouble to the less blessed Kana. Despite being an unbalanced family, they love each other with all their heart. The family's daily life is as funny as ever; trouble and love are always present. Now it's time to see if they'll survive this age change since Haruka is now a young adult; she has even more responsibilities, having to watch over the young while integrating into the adult life.

Since the 2nd season of Minami-ke was a let down, this third season, Minami-ke Okaeri, was expected to bring back the enjoyment experienced from the 1st season. Good news is that it's really improved. The OP and ED is back to being good, and the show is now much more fun and interesting with the increased comedy and the cute developments. The character designs and animation has been modified again. According to some news I read before Okaeri came out, the producers tried to bring it close to the look of the 1st season and I'm glad to say that it didn't turn ...

Its basically a slice of life, comedy anime. Very chill.

General Plot/Story:
There is no overall plot or goal. No plot arcs. Just shows how 3 sisters live together in their apartment, go to school and have fun with their friends. Strictly episodic. In fact, each episode is kinda segmented too; dealing with a specific story. Story-wise its similar to Azumanga Diaoh.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (2/13 eps)
Short Review for the Reader With Little Time
Story (6/10): There is not a coherant storyline throughout the anime, but more of one than in the original. Just as depicted in the desription, the day by day lives of the Minami sisters.
Art (5/10): The art hasn't gotten better since the last season, in fact, it got worse. After the disappoint of Minami-ke 2, I was hoping the art be improved, or at least match the original Minami-ke.
Sound (4/10): Not much to say for music.
Character (7/10): The characters all share the air time, which is nice, but the new character designs are what bother me. The personalities ...
