Sweet comedy - warning! possible spoilers!!
5 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Reminds me of the 5 Little Peppers, many unforgettable characters (the girls parents are simply hilarious), and some very funny scenes, such as acquiring and chasing the croquette bento, and shopping with the 'master'. The bit with the part-time maid job was strange but eventually did fit in with the whole. Fans of Gokusen will recognize the principal (he's the actor who played the Oedo family grandfather) in a funny turn as the 'Red Vegetable'. Who knew he was so athletic? Everyone should be so blessed as to have a big brother like An-chan, the world would be a better place. Mimura-san was also great, he was a sensitive guy who respected his friend's dignity (with the exception of that maid episode). Lots of family feeling in this series, and the viewer is left with an uplifted feeling of Gambatte!
