Crunchyroll to Stream "Himouto! Umaru-chan" Anime

Series kicks off on July 8 at 12:00pm Pacific Time

Crunchyroll announced plans to add another series to its summer 2015 anime lineup today. Himouto! Umaru-chan is set to broadcast every Wednesday, starting July 8 at 12:00pm PT.


Himouto! Umaru-chan will be available to Crunchyroll members in English Speaking Territories (USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand), France, Germany and Benelux, Latin America, Scandinavia, Turkey, Italy, Spain, Middle East and North Africa.




Umaru is a renowned beautiful 16-year-old girl in town, living with her elder brother Taihei. She acts a perfect sister with a kind heart, intelligence and popularity, who everybody admires. So who would believe how true Umaru is at home? Sleeping, gaming, watching TV, eating junk food, drinking cola… that's almost all she does at home, leaving all the housework to her brother.


Her camouflage is so perfect that when one of her classmates visits her home by surprise and witnesses “true Umaru," she pretends as if she is Umaru’s younger sister. Taihei is always swayed by Umaru’s gap between ostensible face and spoiled life, but he cannot hate his comical and somehow lovable cute little sister!


Aimi Tanaka will play Umaru-chan as well as perform the opening theme song “Kakushin Teki Me Tamaru Fo~ze~!”. Umaru’s older brother Taihei will be played by Kenji Nojima (Tuxedo Mask from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal).
