My Review


Himouto! Umaru-chan Recommnedation Chart

Umaru is not fair! Because she is a perfect girl without making any efforts to be! In her house, she is an otaku????? This anime is not fair!!!!!!!!!!!! o(T-T)o I wished I could be like her lol But poor Taihei….. Have you felt bad for him? He has to do mostly everything for her after work….. She is not his child! But I can’t hate her because she is so cute when she becomes small version of her and wears that hamster clothing….. Kawaii (Cute)! Probably that is why he always forgives her. lol, It is so funny that he tries to tell her about her laziness all the time but he holds it back to say. He always feels bad for her. What would you do if you were her elder brother?? Maybe you would do the same thing as what Taihei does!

This anime is up to you to judge if it is funny or not, because basically, Umaru uses her elder brother to do everything for her, so you can also take it as she is an annoying sister, if you take it that way, you will not like this anime, but if you take it as they are a good family, then you will enjoy this anime!

You don’t have to worry about the story because nothing will change on this anime. You can get to enjoy her school life as laughing and feeling sorry for her brother. You don’t have to think about anything and just watch!

Point to watch is those scenes that she pretends she is not Umaru. especially when she is with her one of her friend! Her name is Kirie Motoba. She visits their apartment sometimes but she doesn’t notice yet that small version of Umaru is real Umaru. Kirie thinks that she is Umaru’s little sister. Well, Umaru was caught like that way by her one time, since then she said to Kirie that the small version of Umaru is her little sister….. I wonder how long it will last to fake it. But I like those scenes so much. Kirie wants to be friends with Umaru so she is asking a lot of question to her about Umaru. Lol, that is one of my favorite scenes in this anime. If you haven’t watched this anime yet, you should check it out!
