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!

Himouto! Umaru-chan is a cute story that follows the daily adventures of Umaru and Taihei, as they take care of—and put up with—each other the best they can, as well as the unbreakable bonds between friends and siblings.

Review

Umaru is about a girl that on the surface is perfect, but can transform into a hamster. After watching the first episode of season 2 I’m convinced that I wouldn’t enjoy this show but it was a fun ride for me at the time so maybe you will like it too.

The appeal of this style of humour is the relatable otaku jokes and jokes about the hamster girl criticising her brother and being really good at video games. Not a lot of the jokes will hit but the slice of life aspect can be really nice.
