    Sums up my life. A+!
    This anime is a perfect summary for my life.

    At work I'm a normal human, and when I get home I turn into a hamster potato thing.

    10/10 would bang

    I summed this anime up in one sentence, but I need like 100 more characters. So I'll tell you about my day. It was alright.

    Himouto! is a silly show and it knows it
    This review may need a revision later but let's be clear about one thing: Himouto! Umaru-chan is a silly show, it knows that and is not ashamed. The basic premise is of a 16 year old girl living with her brother who switches between her outside personality (and apperance) of a proper young lady and a horrible, aweful and hilariously annoying deformed chibi version.

    The name of the show Himouto ...

    It was okay, I guess
    Well, I had absolutely zero intentions of watching this show until everyone started posting gifs of it on social media constantly, so I figured I would check out to see what the big deal was.

    I didn't have high expectations entering this show, and I'm glad I didn't.

    So, my main problems with this show is I personally find the main character, "Umaru", despicable and selfish. I do not find ...

    Easily my new favorite anime!
    This anime is adorable! It has already become one of my favorite anime of all time. Not only is Umaru adorable but I think we may be the same person lol! You could even say I am obsessed with this anime (I just ordered a hamster cloak lol) Anyway, I definitely forward to new episodes :3

    ADORABLE AND FUNNY AS HELL AND FOR THOSE WHO WANT PURE COMEDY
    For those who felt that I negated what others felt about the show (the negatives mostly since I loved this show) I apologize for that. I only meant to express my love for the show and in no way meant that the opinion of others are not valid. I have edited this review by giving a more detailed review of why I felt that the average rating should be higher.

    Positives:
    -The main girl is not a mary ...

    A nice relaxing anime.
    Himouto! Umaru-chan features a brother and sister living together in the brother's apartment. In class Umaru, Taihei's younger sister, is the perfect human being, beautiful smart and good at just about everything. When she gets home however, she turns into one of the laziest humans imaginable. All she does at home is eat junk food, play games and makes her brother do stuff for her.

    Enough with ...

    THE HYPER & RANDOM UMARU~!
    Okay, I'll be flat out honest. It isn't the best series BUT it is jammed pack full of hyperness and random things that will catch your attention. At times I did find Umaru a bit too excessive and whiny, but overall it was a nice and comedic series to watch. It's cutesy and loveable. If you are having a bad day, you should watch this XD

    I'm probably enjoying this anime way more than is should
    Sort of in the way that fredacar said in his review "It's silly and it knows it", I do agree that it is a self-aware show. Most anime that try this miserably fail. This one succeeds with with flying colors, in my opinion. This anime not only showcases a quite authentic relationship between a brother and a sister, but it's also genuinely funny at times. the dialog is believable, the ...

    Face it, we all are Umaru!
    Let's actually be honest here. We all wake up every morning, get prepared for whatever life has in store for us-- whether it is school, work, volunteer, etc. We all have an image to maintain for others to perceive. THE MOMENT WE COME HOME, WE ARE ALL COMFORTABLE AND DON'T CARE ABOUT WHAT WE DISPLAY!! Only the closest of people know who we truly are.
