I almost did not watch this. I absolutely dislike chibi characters. Somehow I’m not really bothered by it this time. In the end I found myself laughing quite a lot, which is always a good thing.
The artwork is alright. The characters look nice, the level of detail is pretty nice and I like the music. Yeah, Umaru (love that name) becomes a chibi as soon as she gets home in order to start her Otaku-mode, but I can somehow deal with that due to it being quite funny.
I think it’s a promising story. Her brother wants to scold her for wasting her time on video games, anime and manga, but he can’t since she’s the top student of her school. He knows he can’t scold her for doing whatever she wants in her free time when she’s preforming so good in school.
I think this is definitely worth watching. I enjoyed myself quite a bit when I watched the first episode and I’m already looking forward to the next one. I think it’s safe to recommend this one.
Plot Summary: Umaru is Taihei’s little sister who boasts beautiful looks as well as prowess in both school and sports. However, she has a certain secret. She’s a “Himōto” a little sister who is proper in public but lazy at home.
