Mikan Watch #96: Himouto! Umaru-chan

From episode 8 of Himouto! Umaru-chan, residing in Ebina’s apartment, presumably full and probably sent by her country bumpkin parents.

Umaru-chan is… OK, I guess. I honestly find it a little too lethargic for the kind show it seems to be trying to be, and whilst it’d probably be fine if it was served up a third of the length, I find twenty-four minutes of it in one go to generally be a little too trying to get through. I suppose Teekyu ruins a lot of non-Teekyu things, but whilst it was never going to be quite that kind of show, it just throws into contrast that Umaru really doesn’t have the kind of joke-density it probably needs, or at least I’d want it, to have.

Also, not enough Sylphynford. It definitely needs more Sylphynford.

But, hey, there’s little as subjective as comedy, and your mileage may vary. I gather some crazy people even enjoy Kill Me Baby, so what do I know?
