Storyline

The series follows Umaru Doma, a high school girl who lives with her older brother Taihei. At school, Umaru appears to be the ideal student with good looks, top grades, and a lot of talent. Once she gets home, however, she reverts into a layabout who spends her time lying around, playing video games, and constantly depending on her older brother, much to his dismay. Over the course of the series, Umaru's alternative personalities help her become friends with her female classmates Kirie Motoba, who has a reputation of glaring at people; and Sylphynford Tachibana, a competitive school rival; both of whom turn out to be little sisters of Taihei's coworkers.

For those who seek something light & super-happy :3
9 September 2016 | by NeveriSee all my reviews

This is more of a words of recommendation/warning than review but I want to write it for those who think they need something like this.

"Himouto! Umaruchan" is about a girl named Umaru and her brother Taihei. They live together and most of the series follows the character dynamics of those two. Umaru has 2 different personalities: perfect in school and lazy junk food eating gamer at home. Most of the series focuses in the silly situations Umaru is getting in when she's in her "child form" (also known "at home" form).

What more I need to say?? if you seek something very light and happy with no sad or serious topics this is the one for you. It's all about funny situations and cute things. If you seek something where you can forget your worries this is the anime for you. Nothing super serious, lot's of super cuteness! If you want to watch something with serious topics and real life problems this isn't that kind of anime. it's the first of it's kind I have watched and because of that it's very interesting and I like it a lot.
