Synopsis

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.

One of my favorite anime. It's very educative and it's fun to watch. It's very 2D* and chibi. It teachs you a lot of thing that normaly you wouldn't notice. It's something you can rewatch over and over without getting bore. I suggest to watch the chinese version (it's the version i watched).

A great childhood anime and it is still popular in Japan. The story is simple yet heartwarming and funny. Almost all Japanese of all generations know this anime (and even has a museum created too).Who does not know Maruko and her unique family? WHo does not know the rich Hanawa? It provides a comical sketch of everyday life of Japanese people (back then). This anime also teaches us about Japanese culture indirectly. My favorite character? Hard to decide but probably ojiisan. Along with doraemon and sazae-san, this anime is truly anime of all generation.
