Hmm it was pretty funny, but it's just a bit.. wierd
My brother was also like 1.75m when he was 11 years old, but he still had a childish look and a childish voice.. they made him a bit too mature :x

Not really surprising that it's only 3 mins, I've seen 2 shows last year with length like this(Morita-san and Nyanpire). Both are quite fun and this is also quite fun.
My only gripe is that the boy looks too mature and too big for him to be only a 5th-grader. I can accept the loli sister but the's a bit hard.
Still, it was fun. Will watch this since it's easy to fit in my schedule.

Also, poor Aya Hirano, just 2-3 lines and some gasps here and there. After HxH(2011) and hearing that she's gonna be here, I thought that it's gonna be her comeback. So much for her being active again.

I was surprised to see it was only three minutes long as I was expecting a full length episode. But oh well, it was funny anyway. Made me laugh outloud when he "flashed" his classmate. xD Looking forward to episode two.

Oh, and I loved seeing Mayu and Hana in the beginning. Crossovers are great! Even if only for a few seconds. Lol.

i found this episode to be pretty funny ... im assuming the guy would run into trouble every episode b/c people think he is a child molester when he is actually with his classmates o_O

I can sympathize with the main male character. My voice changed in grade five (in music class there were two of us who were told just to mouth the lyrics in the group chorus since our voices were pitched way below alto) and by the end of grade six I'd reached my full 175 cm height (most of my classmates caught up by junior high or high school). If I have one word of advice for him: when an older girl asks you out on a date--accept, it will just help you grow up a little bit faster...

I don't get all the complaints over the 3 minute length.
I saw the reports about the 3 minute duration when I first
heard about this series going into production.
I WAS disappointed, but Rie-chan starring made that go away.
Now, I see Aya-chan is in this, TOO!!!
PURE WIN!!! (Even if she had one-half of a line of dialogue.)

As for the episode itself, it could have better, but still NOT TOO BAD.
The irony of Miyagawa being arrested is pretty funny when you think about it.

That is until you think the TRAUMA inflicted on an 11-year old
that looks like a grown-up being given a "SANDUSKY" in a holding cell!!
BRUTAL!! (Well, maybe that would only happen here in America. But still...)

PS - If you don't know what a "SANDUSKY" is.....
Please just Google, "Jerry SANDUSKY" or "PENN STATE SEX SCANDAL".
It would take too long for me to explain here.

Apparently most of us missed that memo about this being 3 minutes only so yeah.

I am so sticking with this series.

DAMN! I TOTALLY missed that reference!!
That is pretty funny, but I just hope that they don't stick
with that kind of humor throughout the whole series, though.
In the series "Yoiko" from the late 90's,
which was about a FEMALE fifth-grader that looked like a grown-up,
the writers POURED on TOO MANY sexual references.
(and for me, a dirty old man, that's hard for me to say!)
The jokes got so stale after awhile that even some of the fan-subbers dropped it!!

Hope that doesn't happen with this series.

Kinda sad its only three minutes even if I did know before it would air. This is hilarious though poor kid got mistaken for a child molester. xD

Wow. That was a really cute idea and much funnier than I expected, but I was so disappointed when it ended after 3 minutes! What an unfortunate waste of potential!

Although I agree that him looking like an adult is a bit of a stretch...LeBron James, at 16, looks like 40+ years old already.

Yeah Atsushi looks way too much like a bishonen to be perceived as a kid who's 11 years old only. But that where all the comic content lies.

Looking forward to the next one :)

Good concept, pleasant and funny first ep' and interesting characters, but really, 3 minutes! :O
I had no idea this was another one of those 3 minute anime's - this one could really do with more, but still, good series.

For me, it's just impossible to perceive this boy as an elementary school student. He doesn't even seem to act like a kid to me. Seriously. Btw, anyone else finds the idea of an elementary schooler looking like an adult man retarded? I guess it's the same for the "older" sister. She's REALLY small, though I know some adult girls that have the height of a kid, but it's obvious by face that they aren't teenagers. I guess the difference between the face of 12 years old girl and 16 years old one isn't that big, though, so the girl seems more possible case to me. But a little boy looking like an adult, wtf
Checked this out only because it's so short. Still, dropped. Didn't even make me laugh, the scene with the "molesting" was actually kind of creepy because I couldn't make myself perceive this guy as a kid, like I've said.

I'm with you on this. Seems like we're sadly the only one who think like that though :/ I liked Kill Me Baby much more for example. Those 3 mins were a waste of my life seriously. It was boring, tedious and I didn't laugh for one time. I give it one more chance, but if the second episode isn't more interesting than that, I'll drop it gladly. Well not that I would miss anything with 3 minutes per episode :P

Haha what the hell was that? A mature looking guy is actually an elementary school and gets arrested for interacting with a young girl. Hilarious. xD

Shame it's so short though! =(

I was pretty shocked to find this was only 3 minutes long. I kept skipping past videos thinking they were only trailers! It actually seems like this will be a funny show so I'm looking forward to the next episode. The first one got some laughs out of me, especially with the molester scene.

ONLY THREE MINS LONG!? I didn't even know what happened I thought it was like a PV or something until I checked that it really was just 3 mins long..such a shame.

..but it was still funny LOL. Is that an anime record? 3 mins and already being arrested?

Ok, with that height difference, I can't even look at them with a straight face. But that was a lot funnier than I thought it'd be. I love the friend pairings. But the molestation was funniest. I feel sorry for that lady; she was so freaked out. xD

What's up with all those 3 minutes or so episodes... !

Disapointed. Really. It's fine. It's starting funny and enjoyable but, the whole Kid looking like a Man will probably become boring after a while. The Girl is... believable. I can compare her to the girl in Honey and Clover.

3 minutes long episode is ridiculous even more. No Time. Not Enough Time to make me believe this guy is a Kid.

Nope. Will Probably drop this.

It's too short.
No no no, the concept can get boring.
It's not enough time to for the concept to make sense.

How about not over thinking it. It's a comedic anime-short about a body swap between the siblings.

Morita cameo! Haha, that was surprising. :)
Oh woah, I didn't notice until now that this was only a three-minute show.
Good start I guess but it's kinda hard to believe Atsushi is 11 years old, omg
