Plot Summary: High-school beauty Umaru seems like the perfect teen wunderkind, but she’s hiding a shocking double life. As soon as she gets home, she becomes a junk-food-inhaling, soda-guzzling, video-game-addicted slob. The only one who sees this unsavory side of Umaru is her beleaguered older brother Taihei, who does his best to keep up with his work while trying to get his little sister to behave like a decent member of society. As she makes new friends and gets into a number of wacky situations, Umaru will continue to fight for her right to stay up all night binging potato chips and anime.

Episode 1 –


With the way Umaru is at home, I don’t know how she does so well in school. Talk about a split personality! Since she’s such a princess at school, I think it goes to her head because she is twice as bad at home and has her poor brother wrapped around her finger. But I have a feeling he likes it! He does seem the type that would do anything for his little sister. In any case, the girl needs some friends and an outside life!

ep. 1 made me work to watch it.
If ep. 2 is the same I’m dropping

anime shouldn’t feel like a job

Umaru certainly knows all the ins and outs of manipulating her brother. It’s funny when he tries to use Ebina as a buffer to keep Umaru on her best behavior. However, it’s so obvious that Ebina has a crush on “onii-san” that she probably thinks he wants her around for other reasons. LOL

But using Ebina didn’t quite work out. Umaru threw her tantrum anyway and ended up getting the game she wanted. And the flashback shows just why Ebina has a crush on Doma, which was kind of sweet.
