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.

[HorribleSubs] Himouto! Umaru-chan - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.25_[2015.07.25_23.52.47]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.

[HorribleSubs] Himouto! Umaru-chan - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_23.13_[2015.07.25_23.53.21]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.

Himouto! Umaru-chan episode 02

Yep, I have to. This one really caught me by surprise. I thought for sure that I would have this because the heroine keeps turning into a chibi character, which is a type of character that I usually hate to see in anime.

[HorribleSubs] Himouto! Umaru-chan - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.38_[2015.07.18_23.55.23]I hate myself for this. It probably won’t be long before more chibi characters show up. That’s one of the things I’ve learned about the anime world; if you have one chibi character then there’s always one or two more waiting just around the corner. I will therefore not be surprised when suddenly Umaru’s friends, after having discovered her little secret, turn into chibi’s too as soon as they enter that room. Not that I mind at this point in time. If they look and act like Umaru then I’m completely fine with it. I find her quite amusing to be honest.

[HorribleSubs] Himouto! Umaru-chan - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.48_[2015.07.18_23.55.33]Yes, Umaru can be quite annoying, especially when she acts for things, like at the end of this episode where she really annoyed her brother to spend some of his hard-earned money to buy her a videogame. But that can be seen as one of her charms, I guess? Like that funny hamster thing that she insists on wearing as soon as she’s ready to enter her otaku-mode.

I think I’ll be quite pleased to write about this show as much as I like watching it. I’m kind of hoping that someone else finds out about her little secret just so that I can see how she will deal with it. I also think it is hilarious how her brother can’t do anything seeing as she always seems to get perfect results not matter what she does. I hope they will focus on that a bit more in the future.

Prison School

A lot of people really waited for this one. I happen to know the manga. I read quite a few chapters of it before I got bored and stopped reading. This should basically be categorized as hentai. It’s the lowest possible class of anime; 99% fan service.

Prison SchoolThe artwork is alright. The characters all look quite interesting, which is why I started reading it in the first place, but I feel as though they kind of screwed up with the characters’ voices. They don’t sound like I had imagined them.

The story is just one big loop. A group of boys make a mistake and become imprisoned in their own school by a group of cocky girls and later that role gets reserved. There’s no end to it. That’s why I got bored with all that pointless fan service and I eventually stopped reading.

I personally don’t think this. It’s for that reason that I don’t recommend this. It’s a cheap show that focusses more on fan service than overall quality.

Plot Summary: There was a time when the Hachimitsu Private Academy was a revered and elite all-girls’ boarding school on the outskirts of Tokyo but a recent policy revision is allowing boys into the student body. On his first day, Kiyoshi Fujino discovers that he’s one of only five boys enrolled at the school. Completely overwhelmed by the thousands of girls on campus, the few boys find that their situation is less than ideal.

Danchigai

This is a very watchable anime short. It’s definitely worth spending three minutes a week on. In fact, some people might actually enjoy it.

DanchigaiThe artwork is good for an anime short. In fact, I think it’s worthy of a full-length show. I was solf as soon as I saw Uzuki and her little friend.

I don’t know how good the story will be since it’s just an anime short, but like I said; it’s worth it just to watch three minutes of it every week.

I do recommend this for when you are waiting for other episodes to finish downloading. I know I will be following this for the time being.

Plot Summary: Haruki is the only boy of five siblings. He and his level-headed older sister Mutsuki, his difficult younger sister Yayoi, and mischievous twin sisters Uzuki and Satsuki all live together in an apartment complex.

Gakkou Gurashi!

A lot of people are going nuts over this one. I do not see it. It seemed to me like another boring slice of life anime. It could be that it just had a rough start, but to me it seems like nothing special.

Gakkou Gurashi!The artwork is okay. The characters look alright, although I think the cat-girl look has been done to death. They gave Yuki a cat-girl hat and a cat-girl frown from time to time in order to draw out a few laughs. Meh…

The story eludes me. I cannot even remember where I got lost. I have been told that it’s more than just a slice of life anime where school girls go about their business. It’s supposedly about to become quite interesting…

I haven’t seen anything exciting yet. It looked like just another boring slice of life anime to me. Maybe the second episode will change my opinion…

Plot Summary: Four girls decide to stay over at school: the energetic Yuki Takeya, the shovel-loving Kurumi, the center of the group Yūri who brings everyone together, and the spacey school adviser Megu. However, through mysterious circumstances, the girls find themselves the final survivors in a zombie attack, and continue to live at the school.
