Storyline

The story of super hyper child star Sana Kurata. Her mother is an award winning writer who has strange hairstyles and hats in which lives the family pet, Maro-chan the squirrel. Her manager is, as she describes him, Sana's boyfriend and pimp (though Sana doesn't know what a pimp is). At school, her class is in chaos as the boys, under the leadership of the unemotional Akito Hayama, terrorize the teacher who is unable to do anything against them as Hayama is blackmailing her. As the series goes on, Sana and Akito resolve some of their differences and we follow the unlikely pair as they deal with their own pasts along with such issues as divorce, love triangles, child abandonment, and many others. However, this series hardly goes a minute without breaking into truly hilarious verbal and slapstick comedy. Written by Mike Gulick <dagger@sunspot.tiac.net>

It's so difficult to be an "exceptional" child...
11 December 1998 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sana Kurata is 11 years old girl, cheerful and with much energy. OK, she already works... Erhem, right, she is a child TV star what doesn't mean she can escape classes! All right! She has a busy schedule, then everything is planned. And there's her manager - who she made her "boyfriend" after met him heartbroken and miserable at streets... If she doesn't care him who will do? It's a waste of time to be at school and don't even pay attention, right? Well, seems like the boys don't agree with that... Specially the leader Akito Hayama, the king of cool and unpassion. But don't understimate a girl's strength! Sana will do her best to learn SOMETHING at school, and no boy will stop her. Well I thought that was a regular show about girls versus boys. But it was much more. It's about how difficult is to be kid. To live until grow up! The characters are so lovely made, that you can feel then. They are right here in this world, everyone of them. They sorrow, they laugh, they cry or not... Nobody understand your own heart, and that's what we have here. Disguised as a show about a STAR child, Kodomo no Omocha is a tale to children and to grown ups. A tale to help everyone of us to remember how hard is to be child, how easy we forget the wrong ways of our parents and repeat that in our children, the feelings of a girl forwards an older man... every facet of human being is there, put in a way simple but yet very caring... Because everyone have to love something...
