For a show as short and sweet as Orenchi no Furo Jijou, I figured I would give it a short, sweet review.  Overall, this anime isn't spectacular, but it's still quite good.  The animation is very nice, with the more realistic moments, and the cute chibis - generally used for jokes - mixed and utilized well.  While the characters aren't particularly deep - understandable with so little time to develop them - they are likeable, fully formed, and funny.  It doesn't have a flowing narrative.  While new characters are introduced, and reappear overtime, the story itself is a series of anectodes of Tatsumi and Wakasa's life together.

Also, I should mention how comically the opening differs from the rest of the show.  It is purposefully dark and dramatic, with a black and white color scheme.  The contrast from the colorful, quirky, comedic, and lighthearted nature of the show is quite entertaining.

Overall the show is very well made.  The animation, voice acting, humor, and characters are all nice.  It's a nice quick show to cheer you up on a bad day.

Its a cute show, the animation took a second or two to get used to, but personally I find it a really cute artstyle. The opening has a good song, but is more serious than the actual show. They also make the most out of their time frame of four minutes, with a thirty second opening, the rest of the three and a half minutes is completly filled with the characters and the happenings of Tatsumi's home.

The show itself is cute and funny, however it will often give off shounen-ai vibes.The characters and happenings of the show are cute, but if you're not into shounen-ai this might not be the short for you.

There isn't much in a ways of story in this show, it is just a bunch of shorts about shenanigans, and it's well worth it. A lot of hte scenes give off strong shonen-ai vibes, but these are soon crushed in a spectacular fashion with near enough ingenous comedic timing. 

The animation is gorgeous, especially the way it interchanges between a hyper-realistic, serious style into a cute, childish chibi animation, especially for silly moments, ones that do not need detailed animations.

The opening theme is extrement serious, making use of black and white tones and imagery similar to that of a psychological, dark anime. It can only be speculated that the very serious nature of the opening was a purposeful joke.

The characters are mostly likable, although none of them go much deeper beyond a few gags and the delivery of their lines in a comedic manner, but that does not deter from the show at all. In fact, the simplicity of the characters creates a feeling of lightheartedness, making this show a quick watch if you wish to have a laugh while unwinding after a long day.

I'll try to keep the reviw as short as the episodes themselves. Great animation, comedic moments and voice acting, and a  great cast of main and supporting characters. My only real complaint is that for a show with episodes lasting four minutes, an openeing that takes up around 10% of the total run time feels a little pointless
