"Himouto! Umaru-chan" is a story about a young girl, very selfish and caring only about being perceived like the perfect girl in the outside world. But as she gets friends, she will try to appear good to them in a private setting, and with time she will realize that being a kind and caring person with others makes her happy.

Overall, that manga is very wholesome, the characters are very endearing and unique (i wish i had more time with them), the art is very cute and the emotions of the characters are very well expressed. However, the ending (if you can call that an ending) 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.

Himouto Umaru-Chan tells the everyday life of the lovable Umaru and her interactions with her brother and her friends. Umaru is renowned for her beauty and talent throughout her entire read more

And then, this wildly cute ride is finally over.

There may be a sequel or just a spinoff follow-up (will read it regardless), but here's a small review for this clever little gem.

Himouto! Umaru-chan is a Slice of Life manga about a super-active hamste- highschool girl who has very bad life habits inside her house, is a completely obnoxious and very dependant spoiled little brat towards her brother (which is the completely opposite of her in every single aspect)... but who is actually a prodigy with whatever she actually want to do (including being at times quite a bit too manipulative and egoistical for her own read more

[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
