Anime Review on ‘School Babysitters’

This series was actually recommended to me by my friend. at first I thought it was a childish cartoon and then I started watching it with my brothers and I must say it did melt my heart.

After losing both parents in a fatal plane crash, teenager Ryuuichi Kashima must adjust to his new life as the guardian of his younger brother Kotarou. Although Ryuuichi is able to maintain a friendly and kindhearted demeanor, Kotarou is a reserved toddler still too young to understand the reality of the situation. At their parents’ funeral, they are approached by Youko Morinomiya, the stern chairman of an elite academy, who decides to take them under her care.

However, there is one condition Ryuuichi must fulfill in exchange for a roof over their heads and enrolment in the school–he must become the school’s babysitter. In an effort to support the female teachers at the academy, a babysitter’s club was established to look after their infant children; unfortunately, the club is severely short-staffed, so now not only is Ryuuichi responsible for his little brother, but also a handful of toddlers who possess dynamic personalities.

I would recommend this anime to anyone if you have a kid or if you have younger siblings then you can relate yourselves to this anime because i’m sure this anime will make you smile and melt your heart.

Anime Review on ‘The way of the house husband’

The Way Of The Househusband is a weird but interesting series that you could easily finish in less than an hour. Nothing too special but an engrossing series to say the least. The main character is somewhat relatable and the supporting characters as well. One notable thing though is the animation which is at best, a 6/10, although the show is overall an 8/10 as I see it.
It doesn’t dive too deep into romance and action, it sticks to comedy, and that’s what I appreciate in this series. The quirky unorthodox humor is strangely great, which had me shaking with laughter.

Gokushufudou: The Way of the House Husband is a 5 episode animation based off of the manga of the same name. It’s about an Ex-Yakuza member known as the “Immortal Dragon” due to his terrifying fighting prowess, having been known to wipe out multiple large groups of enemy gangs bare handed in one night. However he decides to give up the life of crime in order to be a full time househusband, and care for his wife Miku. That’s it. Nothing more. Nothing less. However, i feel like people are trying to treat it as if it’s something more than that, as if it were an epic action manga that “wasn’t done justice” by the animation, and i couldn’t really disagree more. More on that later.

As for the individual ratings:

Story: 9
It’s a simple, cute, fun concept that you honestly can’t really go wrong with on it’s own.

Sound: 7
Intro and outro tracks were pretty good. (idk if this goes w/ sound or characters so apologies if I am wrong) The voice actors were great as well, with Kenjiro Tsuda acting as Tatsu’s VA.

Character: 10
I love the idea behind Tatsu as a character. I think that the designs are executed well, and that the other characters do a good job of supporting his own character.

Art: 5
Look, I’m not gonna sit here and act like it was animated well. It isn’t great. To be fair I do think that it was colored very well. But, I don’t feel that the animation needs to be absolutely insane to find enjoyment in the series. I think we should take a slightly different perspective on this. I believe that the animation quality was not a main focus. I think that they may have even lessened the animation quality purposefully in order to make it more akin to a motion manga than an anime, as well as highlight the story a bit more. While this is QUITE a stretch, I know, for me, it had that exact effect, which is part of the reason i would rate the enjoyment:

Enjoyment: 10
As I sat and watched all 5 episodes, I genuinely couldn’t stop smiling. The jokes, the story, the characters all gave me the goofiest smile I had had in a few days.

With all of this taken into close consideration, I rate Gokushufudou: The Way of the House Husband at an overall 8/10. Although it falls short in some audio and visual qualities, I believe it more than makes up for it in story, comedy, and character.
