Himouto! Umaru-chan R



Synopsis

People are not always who they appear to be, as is the case with Umaru Doma, the perfect high school girl—that is, until she gets home! Once the front door closes, the real fun begins. When she dons her hamster hoodie, she transforms from a refined, over-achieving student into a lazy, junk food-eating otaku, leaving all the housework to her responsible older brother Taihei. Whether she's hanging out with her friends Nana Ebina and Kirie Motoba, or competing with her self-proclaimed "rival" Sylphinford Tachibana, Umaru knows how to kick back and have some fun!

First episode is now up on Anime Strike. New episodes are every Sunday at 8:30am Pacific: LINK

Episode 1

That was pretty hilarious once again as I remember it. First, there's Umaru up to her usual antics again eating instant ramen, potato chips, and chugging down cola while she plays games well into the night. And then she is helping Ebina pulling out the weeds, and tackles it like she's fighting a VG boss. Then comes the soccer match where she and Kirie are up against a team led by Sylphyn and Ebina. Ebina's big boobs prove to be a problem as she scored an own goal because of it. And then Umaru scores the match-winner against Sylphyn. Once again, it's great to be back with this show as it continues to be comedy gold.

Episode 1

The first episode starts with Taihei having to work overnight, so Umaru gets to stay home alone. She spends the night playing games and cup noodles, chips and chugging cola. Taihei comes back the next evening and finds Umaru outside looking at the view. The next day Taihei volunteers himself and Umaru to pull weeds. At first she doesn't want to do it but after seeing Ebina having fun doing it she ends up helping out. The last part we have a soccer match between classes but instead the girls are mixed into teams. The captains turn out to be Umaru and Sylphyn since they have the best grades. The soccer match was something as Sylphyn was doing all the scoring but Umaru works with her team to score some points. Seeing that she might lose Sylphyn starts working with her team even giving orders to them. They might have lost in the end but they were impress by how good she played. The last part was about Umaru being afraid of making small talk with other girls since they are the ones to approach her. Going home she asks Ebina if she was worried asking Kirie to eat which she was and after hearing this goes to look for Sylphyn and Kirie but they were following her. In the end all four walk home together.

This first episode was not that bad. I did enjoy the soccer match the most and it was funny how Ebina scored a goal with her boobs. Looking forward to more episodes.

That was SOOOOOO good.

What a good way to kick off season two. I actually really enjoyed them doing more with "big" Umaru. All the girls got their time this episode too. It feels like the show didn't miss a beat. And I am super happy to see them all hanging together.

And the ED is fan-freaking-tastic. I am so glad to have this show back. it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun again this time around.

I loved the bits with Sylph this episode too. Her smile and demeanor are purely infectious.

Ebina still best girl though:





Edit... Also this has been my fav first episode of the season so far next to Magus Bride.

Kind of a "let's get reacquainted with the cast" episode, nothing that great, though I agree with Yamstarch, I liked the focus on "big" Umaru
Hopefully they continue the end of the first season where she was deciding to spend less time cooped up at home. Like the ED better than the OP this time around.

Also what's up with the thread title? Change it to what it's supposed to be no one calls it 'my two faced little sister '

I'm hoping this will eventually show up in the Prime Video section for Canada. I don't check every day, but I can see that the first episode of Just Because is on there.

Ebina is trash, and Kirie is the best. What, you don't like ponytails or dark haired beauties, or cute, overly protective shrinking violets? The irrationality!

Hamsta Cool


Even though big Umaru is nice, different takes on hamster-chan would be fun too.
