Shinnosuke Nohara, A.K.A. Shin-chan, a combination of Dennis The Menace and Howard Stern, is a 6-year-old growing up in Tokyo in this animated series. His foul mouth and rude behavior constantly scandalize his parents (although his father seems to be a big influence), his teacher, and everyone else with the bad luck to cross his path. Later in the series Shin-chan gains a baby sister, who seems well on the way to following in his footsteps. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

User Reviews

Hilliarious even if it's different from the Japanese version.
31 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shin-Chan is about a kinder-gardener named Shin Nohara who has the mind of a high schooler. He's trouble-making, vulgar, and a real brat. Besides those characteristics, he lives with his family who find him to be a real pain in the shins whenever he's around. Everyday is something different for Shin when it comes to playing games with his friends, being flirted by a rich girl, or trying to collect the merchandise of his favorite action hero.

Despite the DVDs only containing the English version. Shin-Chan is one of those fewest anime that are watchable even if it contains English text edits and in-jokes on today's media. These were done so that way the show can survive the increasing anime industry in America. I'm not sure if it'll last long if it the English Dub was more true to the original version. I only seen one episode of Shin-Chan in Japanese which was still funny but less humorous than the English dub. One day we might get to see the Japanese version along with the English dub on DVD. For now the DVDs are the only way to see this anime.

Like the second Lupin III anime dub(which only had 79 out of 155 episodes), this anime has in the cheek humor. You'll be hearing jokes on various American movies, TV shows, and occasionally some recognizable anime titles. Along with Godzilla and Kamen Rider in-jokes that'll guarantee to tickle your funny bone.

If you're old enough to watch TV-MA material anime then it shouldn't be a problem for you to watch Shin-Chan. Cause there's a lot of swearing, and boy nudity in it.
