THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Lol, the Miku figure.

Eh, it was an alright episode I guess. We have Umaru, her bro, and Ebina hanging out together. Ebina as usual display her cherry personality. I also found the chemistry between Takeshi and Taihei to be pretty amusing this episode.

Fun to see UMR and Sylphynford appear as well~

Hmm average episode.
We figured out Bomber's imouto was Kirie. I guess. That intern or whoever it is at Oni-chan's workplace said he has an imouto too. Well guess we'll see that soon.

Umaru is probably one of the scummiest imouto ever! Even if she feels bad for Tahei afterwards, it doesn't change the fact that she's an awful individual. I hope the show ends with her character being redeemed in some ways. Otherwise, it'll be very dissatisfying.

The ending was somewhat interesting though. Wonder who that Umaru-lookalike lady was from Taihei's memories. O.o

Funny as always. I liked the part where Taihei got lost because he followed a cat. I´m the same. X3

So, Bomber and Kirie are sibling :3

Taihei should get the award for "Best Onii-chan". The doll he bought for Umaru looked expensive :o
Holy Madoka! The Yuri is strong here!

Umaru learns the fear of not having her Onii-chan around.
Taihei have an older sister? Hm...I wonder where is all his parents...aren't them suppose to take care of Umaru?
Too many question, oh well since it's a gap manga turns into an anime...we will have to wait for it then?
Not much of Kirie and Nana.

Umaru looking for her brother was soooo touching.

Sylphy is so cut as well, lol at the carrot.

The second half (or rather fourth) was reference to Whisper of the Heart. who's the girl? Elder sister of Taihei and Umaru?

I'd say it's fairly certainly their mother. But I don't know if -kun is used by parents for their children, too.

I really like how Bomber and Kirie are siblings lol. That was funny of him to offer her a piggyback ride only to have him beat down.

The episodes was okay. Some parts were decent, some not. The extent of how much those siblings care about each other is amazing. I still can't stand Sylphy though. Just don't see anything likeable about her.

YES, a little bit of Ebina-chan is always good. And, Bomber was hilarious this episode, those facial expressions, lol. Also, didn't cross my mind that Kirie's his sister. Liked this episode.

You mean Alex? He is Sylphy's brother. Watch episode 4 again. Even in this episode they eat Yogure in a flashback.

Looks like next episode we're going to find out more about who the person in the flashback is... We also should start seeing the web of relationships building between the various onii-chan and imouto.

Man, I almost thought they'll go for a feel route twice with calling the grandmother and Taihei remembering his mother. I love it. C:

A pretty cute episode as always, and it does show Umaru showing remorse for her actions and that she DOES love her brother very much and appreciates what he does. Give that man a prize.

Admittedly slower but hey, I still liked it a bit.

Also, Kirie and Bomber are related? Interesting... (Though I really want an episode revolving around Taihei's "girlfriend", maybe the next one could be that)

Another Question:

Does Ebina have an older brother or is it not revealed yet?

So she was their mother, she looks exactly the same as Umaru. I can safely say that their father looks exactly like Taihei. Also, the Best Onii-chan of 2015 goes to... Taihei-kun. He's a saint, period.

Let’s say you drink too much strawberry milk, and have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. You don’t want to get up, but the urge to urinate is just too strong! You run to the bathroom, stand in front of the toilet, and let loose! You think that all your life has led to this moment! YOU'RE STILL IN BED! That feeling of lukewarm wetness spreads! But you can’t stop! THAT’S THE TRUTH OF THE STRAWBERRY MILK! DO YOU GET IT? ~ Gintoki

Very cute and funny episode, as always. I bet that part of the reason he's something of a siscon is because Umaru takes after his kind-looking mom.

It's a 4-koma comedy manga. I don't think it'd get THAT dramatic. But I must admit, that sequence did feel moody. It does make you wonder how their parents are doing.

Based off that sequence, you can infer that the mother has already passed away. Maybe that's the reason Umaru turned to a closet recluse/otaku, in order to help cope with the loneliness?
Maybe that's also why she's a brocon too. Because for siblings, they do seem close to each other. Even in himouto-mode, she still cares for Taihei (albeit still being mischievous most of the time).

That flashback got me curious i really hope we"ll have some explainations about what happened to their mother in the next episode .By the way Taihei clearly deserves the "Golden Onii-chan 2015" !

For a moment, this anime became Aria with Taihei chasing the cat and remembering his past. That was very relaxing, funny how it happened in the same episode where Bomber mentioned that seeing Umaru was "healing" to him.

Also, interesting how the three onii-chan and their three imoutos respectively know each other.

Please, more shupapan next episode!

Glad to see Taihei and Umaru brother-sister bonding. Overall good episode, TSF's childhood memories, Taihei's memories, and more. The Office scene, I got seen that scene before, Deja's Vu



Best "Migu" face I ever seen.



Ebina-chan! :D <3

Nice to see the pasts and interactions between oniichans and imoutos. Lol Alex kept saying his pc froze, but he just wanted Taihei to see I guess :D
Kirie called her brother Bakuhatsu Gorira (Exploding Gorilla) = Bomber, great nickname there Kirie-chan ;)

It's not 4-koma. The format is normal, just that it only has about 9 pages per chapter.

And for anyone hoping for some revelation about their mother, even us manga reader didn't get any of that.

Nice bonding and Umaru really does love her Onii-chan a lot! ^^

Good episode revealing the sibling pairs of the cast and Bomber's scene was the best haha.

I hope we get to see more of the mother. :x

So they call him "Bomber" because his hair looked like the aftermath of a bomb explosion. A funny character.

Good episode. Umaru's character development is what I am looking forward in this series.

I have a younger sister whom I love dearly, and this episode really captured the older brother-younger sister dynamic perfectly: I see large parts of myself in Taihei, and also in Takeshi getting denied bonding time :(

The star of this show to me really has been the relationship dynamic between Taihei and Umaru; very heartwarming and well-done.

Nice to meet another Aria appreciator. That scene and the music completely made my mind at peace, and immediately reminded me of when [Aria Spoiler]
Absolutely breathtaking.

bro, I was afraid that Umaru and Sylphyn were yelling "obaa-chan", but ended up finding out that the grandma of the candy store died and that that was the reason why the store seems so vacant.
