To the rest of the world, Umaru is kind, smart, and the perfect high school student. But her brother, Taihei, knows the truth: at home, she's a bratty, slovenly, lazy girl who eats junk food, plays video games, and throws tantrums when Taihei won’t buy her manga or do what she wants! Now, in addition to working full time to support their household, Taihei must do all of the cooking, cleaning and shopping while Umaru enjoys her carefree days as an unabashed, yet secretive, otaku.

At the beginning, I didn't even look at this show because of the description that Crunchyroll gave me. It led me to believe that it was another incest romance show. I really did not want to watch one of those shows. The colorful colors and the shape of Umaru also misled me to believe that. When I caught up with a lot of the shows I've been watching, I somehow decided I'd give this one a go and I absolutely love it now. And just to be clear, it's not incest.  It's pretty funny to be honest here, because of Taihei's reactions to Umaru. Umaru is so cute when she's at home. It's like she's a stuffed animal~ (not that she is, but you get the idea) Kirie was kind of scary at first but she was revealed to be a nice character later on.  It was really funny when Ebina kept slipping her accent out and tried to correct it even though nobody seemed to care. One character that stood out was Sylphynford. I thought nobody would use the brightest blue on hair. I was wrong. Her eyes are so cute though and her attitude towards Umaru is really amusing. (I like blue hair though... Anime characters should do that more often) I think the story's going to develop more in the future and it'll get even better than now. The animations are pretty nice and I think the music and the voices really fit in with the characters and the situation they're in. The characters are really nice and they don't seem flat and predictable so that's a plus~ Overall, I really like this show and you guys should totally give it a go too. It's not bad.
