Momoko Sakura is an elementary school student who likes popular idol Momoe Yamaguchi and mangas. She is often called "Chibi Maruko-chan" due to her young age and small size. She lives together with her parents, her grandparents and her elder sister in a little town. In school, she has many friends with whom she studies and plays together everyday, including her close pal, Tama-chan; the student committee members, Maruo-kun and Migiwa-san; and the B-class trio: 'little master' Hanawa-kun, Hamaji-Bu Taro and Sekiguchi-kun. This is a fun-loving and enjoyable anime that portrays the simple things in life.

Preliminary (10/? eps)
If you grew up in the 70's or 80's and need a blast from the past then here is the series for you.

There is no grand plan for this series. No end goal or gimmick. The whole thing is a nostalgia bomb as every episode centers around the day to day things we associate with not childhood but childhood during that time period.

From a school trip to a candy factory where they show off biscuits and little prize candy I haven't seen for over 20 years (and probably loved back then though they tasted like chalk!) to simply learning to say goodbye to your favorite ...
