This is the story of a typical family in Japan and their typical lives. Made up of a father, a mother, a brother, and sister Mikan, the Tachibanas always find themselves in the midst of various and wacky misadventures. Whether it's Mikan and her mother going on a frustrating shopping trip, debating the merits of a high-class bento, trying out new exercise devices or convincing mother to buy a new air conditioner, there's never a dull day in the life of the Tachibanas!
This show is really funny. Sadly, I can't really find the Japanese version of the show and ended up watching it in Cantonese (which I luckily understand because the subtitles are in Chinese too.) It's kind of old but don't let that prevent you from watching the show. The situations the characters are in and the really funny episodes will definitely keep you watching it. In my opinion, I think it's a really good anime show, but it's so obscure (is that the word?) that nobody ever talks about it. I think people sometimes miss out on good shows like this because of that. Personally, this is one of the best slice of life shows because it really shows you what it's like in a realistic family (sort of, not really) Overall, people should totally give this show a try. According to Anime-Planet, this show is family friendly too so that's nice.
Slice of life. The music is cute. The art is deliberately minimalistic (in fact, quite odd). Shin (New) Atashinchi brilliantly brings out the complexity in the most simple of situations in the day to day life of a family of four. If you ask me, the main protagonist is the mum, Tachibana-san. Several episodes discuss her sixth senses, innovative deductions, cute, clumsy mistakes and her oneness with household chores. Not to mention her outings with her friends. One episode which discusses her ongoing depression especially strikes me. However, Mikan, her brother Yuzu and her father's lives are almost equally discussed, whose middle-school life, high-school life and office life provide a refreshing change to the narrative, (Yes, one 23 minute epsiode is divided into 3 everyday short stories)
