Himouto! Umaru-chan episode 03
Well, it was to be expected that they would add a new character soon. I’m sure there’ll be more showing up soon, but this particular character really stands out. I’m honestly not sure I even like her from what I’ve seen so far.
I’m talking about Kirie-chan. She’s a shy, evil-looking girl that followed Umaru around like a stalker in order to return something of hers. I just don’t like the idea of Kirie thinking that she met Umaru’s little sister. It’s way too farfetched and strange. Why not just let Kirie discover Umaru’s little secret? Kirie has no other friends that she can talk to, so why not? Maybe the two could build a friendship that would last a lifetime if that happened. But this is just strange. Her entire personality is just strange; she instantly became chibi Umaru’s servant and she seems to worship the perfect Umaru. That’s not really healthy.
I’m guessing that that blue-haired girl, Sylphy or whatever her name was, will also become one of the regulars. She keeps popping up and I’m sure she’ll continue to do so as long as perfect Umaru’s walking around. Every time Umaru does well, which is pretty much most of the time, she seems to appear out of nowhere.
I think the ending was the best part. It was so funny that I actually fell of my chair. I think this may have been the first time that Umaru really relied on her brother for something other than money or help. What made it so funny is how he chose to prioritize the laundry over his frightened little sister. I saw that scene three times in a row. It didn’t stop being funny.
