Minami-ke is an anime that is centered around three sisters. The anime doesn't have much in the way of a plot line but focuses more on the comic lives that the three sisters lead. The three sisters each have there own very different personalities which creates comedy on its own. The interactions with their family and friends in strange situations provides for a big laugh in every episode. For this anime there was not a clear cut ending and it tells you theres a second season to come. I found that the opening and closing themes were ok and fit well with the anime.

Minami ke is mainly a slice of life anime,surrounded by humours and interesting characters.It is a rather relaxing anime,and it is closer to the reality compare to other animes.Just because it is a slice of life anime,doesn't mean it is boring(to those who love action animes).It has plenty of humorous scenes.The one that i remembers best is the ninomiya and sensei game.It is a freaking retarded game,and i laughed and laughed at the parodies in the game.And then of course there is Hosaka's fantasies.

Right now,there is minami ke okawari.It isn't as funny as season 1,but things may get better later

I must agree with romeoxjuliet. I personally enjoy these types of Anime, ones that deal with regular everyday lives, have a romantic alure to them, or revolve around the central themes of a societal nature. Minami Ke is loaded with humor played on by inuendoes and refrences towards acts of nature accumulated through the relationships held between people living closely together. It is complex yet easy to understand and relate to, which gives it is comidic appeal. In other words... these things are funny simply because they are true. To those who really are not into or up to this type of story line, they may find if a bit bland or boring... however, with a little bit of culture and a sense of humor, this series can make for a wonderful watch. Perhaps it may even be able to open the doors to many other simular types of Anime where the stories follow the same lines, such as Lucky Star and Ichigo Mashimaro.

However, as for the second season, which is airing right now (as in episode Five on 05FEB08), I must say, although the same voice actors have been retained, and the story plays out the same, the season does not "Feel" the same. For example, even the very beginning, with the theme song and opening credits and scenes, makes me immediately feel as if I am actually watching a completely different type of Anime all together. Instead of an "everyday life" comedy... It makes me feel as if I am about to watch some kind of fantasy adventure anime. However, despite this, I must say, the show yet still remains very funny.

I think episode 5 has a lot of humour.If the second season can keep this up,it would be great.

The remake style isn't so nice as the first one and the op and end songs just don't fit the type of anime Minami-ke is.And it isn't as funny as the first one.I prefer the original one.And I just love all the characters!It has the best secondary characters and all!The Kana and Chiaki duo is always as funny.I think slice of life animes is relaxing and funny and have more reality in them.So I kind of enjoy this slice of life animes.

Second season is a big let-down. Totally a waste of time.

Though I haven't gone onto the second season yet... I just finished the first season!

I enjoyed this just because, as ajpointless has pointed out, a lot of the material for their comedic acts are real life true things. Thusly it doesn't feel to far-fetched, to "some-degree", and feels more relate-able than your common anime nowadays. Everything meshed well, and I like the artistic take the artists took. The color pallet was nice, and the close ups with the more-well-defined facial features felt refreshing...

Though on a side note, season one and two are done by two different studios. Season one by Daume, and two by Asread.

I'll leave my input on season two by tomorrow! ^^
