Trivia

The closing credits song has Iyami mention that he should be the main character of the anime because he's obviously the best of the cast. This had happened in Osomatsu-kun (1988), with Iyami and Chibita being the main characters. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, the Matsuno head briefly appears as a planet. This is a homage to Osomatsu-kun (1988)'s opening credits, which featured a montage of planets. See more »

Logic and nonsense combined into one
4 April 2018 | by Thumper-113See all my reviews

The series started in the year 1966, was later adapted into another series in 1988, and has now adapted for the third time into 2015 and onward today.

The sextuplets Osomatsu, Karamatsu, Choromatsu, Ichimatsu, Jyushimatsu, and Todomatsu have now matured into fully grown adults from only knowing them before in their childhood years. However, they still have yet to grasp reality itself as they are still lazing around in their parent's house completely unemployed, and continuously depending on their parents for support over most of the shenanigans they either bump into, or create themselves.

Many of the interactions these brothers make with one another often end up quite humorous at times, but other times you may also be more focused on trying to figure out what's even going on in the first place. There are even times when this show gets serious with the audience about what they're portraying, often times to a point where you may even shed a tear or two.

The setting and atmosphere themselves seem pretty original and well liked, even if it isn't as detailed or realistic when you compare it to something like "Your Name." Then again, (you don't often see this in most animes) there are even times when the animation styles change themselves in more than one way. Sometimes they could go from a separate animation year style, to 2D or 3D style, and even to live action style if they wanted to.

I really liked the sort of "totally the same, but completely different" vibe from these 6 brothers all throughout the anime. All of them may look the same, but overtime you may even be asking yourself, "the way they get along, how the heck are these people related?" They basically all have so many separate characteristics, train of thoughts, physical and emotional traits that within the first 5 episodes, you could already easily tell the difference between all of them.

Overall a very funny anime most of the time, the story elements change most of the time so there's really no specific way to think about it unfortunately, and I would definitely recommend this anime to anyone who is looking for another good and wacky comedy to get into.
