Seeing as no one has made a review for this yet i thought i would make a quick one i don't normally write reviews but this is a good manga so i though i would.

Himouto! Umaru-chan is a manga about a girl (Doma, Umaru) who leads a double life one as a very proper girl, she has amazing grades, many admirers, and is respected by every one. But as soon as she gets in to her house she turns in to a hardcore otaku shut in who plays video games, watches anime, reads manga, eats snacks, and drinks coke all day. Its a short read more

Himouto Umaru-Chan does not use cliche harem scenes or exposed underwear shots to entice readers. Don't let the title and synopsis to deter you from reading this slice of life, as through the 92 chapters that Norway Scans (I miss you) has scanned, there has not been a single case of sibling romance. Its not a manga that focuses upon the idea of romance, but rather, it implements it in small doses, often with hilarious ways.

[TW: There are no trigger warnings for this series! :) ]

Story [8/10]
I don't have evidence for this claim, but I feel as if series centering around sibling relationships where the sister character is actually a huge nerd are becoming increasingly popular and more numerous these days. I can think of two other series [Oreimo and Watamote] off the top of my head who have a similar theme to Himouto! Umaru-chan. Despite this, I feel as if Himouto does the best job at tackling this theme. It's simple slice-of-life with the only real difference being that Uramu tries to keep nerd side somewhat secret from all read more
